DinoSpotz

In this look I used some Glamour Doll eyeshadows that I bought recently.

I used Katie's Storm and DinoSpotz. And I used Bare Naked as a highlight/blending helper.

First to the inner quarter or so I put some Katie's Storm. The the rest of the lid and crease I put DinoSpotz which by far is one of my favorites! I used a matte white cream base under the eyeshadows.

I used Bare Naked to help blend DinoSpotz and also sort of as a highlight shadow.

I used the same eyeshadows to line the lower lash line. I used a black liquid liner to line my top lid. Maybelline's Volum Express in black as a mascara.


DinoSpotz is so amazing! It's like a burgundy/brick red/brown with some green glitter. Depending on the direction where the light hits your eyelid the eyeshadow changes.



Have you heard of Glamour Doll Eyeshadows before?
Enjoy your Thursday!

Swatches of Glamour Doll eyeshadows

I believe there pictures are better on the actual website of Glamour Doll, but here are the swatches of the eyeshadow samples that I bought.

Want to see my first look with these shadows, if yes, then click here.


L-R: DinoSpotz, Flashdance!, MIngles, Olivia Green, Secretive and Summer Skies.

I could not capture the magnificent color of DinoSpotz. :( I already know I'm going to order some of these in full size and DinoSpotz is definately one of them. MIngles and Olivia Green are matte.



L-R: Island Chic, Shaded Orchid, Katie's Storm, Graffiti, Lovers Lane and Disco White

The picture of the sample baggies. One without flash and the other with flash. The real color is something in between. I got two black ones, Graffiti is matte black with lime glitter, but you can't see it in the picture. :(


L-R: Skinny Jeans, Jailhouse Jumpsuit, Urban Trash, Glam Girl and Dusk


Skinny Jeans isn't black, it's like green gray or so... Sounds weird huh? Urban Trash is a matte black.


These are the two free samples I got with my order. The picture above does not really match at all to the colors, it's again something in between the two pictures, one taken without flash and the other with.

And here is a bad pic of the swatches.




Do you like them? :D

Glamour Doll Eyes

In December an American company called Glamour Doll had a little sale. (FYI, not being paid for mentioning the company and I bought these shadows myself. etc) They are getting new eyeshadows that are released this Friday (Jan. 8th). The website is mostly closed right now, I'm not entirely sure whether or not you can order anything from there now, except for a few exceptions. The website opens tomorrow, Wednesday January 6th again and the Twilight-collection is released on Friday January 8th.

I hope I got all that right so that I don't give wrong info... I'm pretty sure I did.

I bought 17 eyeshadow samples, most of them created by the owner Vee, and one was created by Mel. Also I got two free samples with my purchase. Those samples Vee chose herself, so I couldn't choose the two. If I remember correctly each eyeshadow purchase gets some samples. For example if you only buy the Goody Balms (lip balms) that are made by Mel, you wont get eyeshadow samples. Only when buying eyeshadows you can get free samples, that you cannot choose yourself, they are chosen for you.


This look I did by Jailhouse Jumpsuit (orange), Glam Girl (purple) and Dusk (blue). Jailhouse Jumpsuit in the inner corner, Glam Girl on the lid and Dusk in the outer corner and a little in the crease.

When I was ordering these I was a little daring if I may say so. I mean I never thought I'd order an orange eyeshadow, let alone that bright of an orange. I didn't think it would be wearable, but it really is! I'm so happy that I'm wrong sometimes. Another "crazy" eyeshadow that I got is Island Chic. My dream is to use the Jailhouse Jumpsuit and Island Chic together, but honestly can you imagine orange eyeshadow with a greenish turquoise eyeshadow? Another favorite of mine is DinoSpotz. Holy smokes what a unique eyeshadow color! In some lighting it looks burgundy but in other lighting it's green! I've never seen anything like it.

Black pencil eyeliner and black mascara. As a highlight I used a matte offwhite eyeshadow by Grimas that I recently bought. I went and bought the eyeshadow palette with 4 shadows that you choose yourself. More about that in a later post.


The other Glamour Doll eyeshadows that I got are: DinoSpotz, Lovers Lane, Disco White, Island Chic, Urban Trash, Graffiti, Skinny Jeans, Shaded Orchid, Katie's Storm, Flashdance!, MIngles, Olivia Green, Summer Skies and Secretive. The two free samples are Bare Naked and Violent.

Island Chic is by Mel, the rest is by Vee. I tried to take pictures of the sample baggies for you, but it didn't quite work yet. I'll do that when I do the swatches... So stay tuned. :D
