Glamour Doll Eyes is absolutely my favourite independent mineral shadow brand.
What are your favourite GDE shadows?
I swatched all of mine to share here. Do you guys have swatches of yours?
They are massively awesome. I've actually never tried Foil Me. I use the MAC Pro mediums for everything. The water based to apply them with usually, the eyeliner mixing medium, and the lash mixing medium. I can pretty much do anything with them. That's really convenient for me as a makeup artist, especially on shoots, cause I can be like "BLAM!" and instead of "There's an app for that", "There's a mixing medium for that."
Indie brands are usually the best because they listen to people and care about you. They also tend to have way better colors and stuff for more specialized interests because they're not looking to appeal to the global market the way that like, say MAC and Make Up For Ever do. That's why I'm really into GDE and Sugarpill and stuff. I also want to order from Makeup Geek in the near future. Anybody have an opinion on Makeup Geek shadows?
I'm in the Insider program, which is basically like a mini sponsorship where they send you four half-sized shadows every month and you use them and send them the pictures. This month went well for me, and I think the next box ships out tomorrow, so everyone should keep an eye out for when new spots open up. Cotton Candy, Mackinac, Catwalk, and Corrode were the four they sent me in January, so I did pay for all of the rest of those over the past year.
Lmao I wasn't paying attention and I read: You've Got a goat...for some reason lmao
Either way, gorgeous swatches :3
I have show off and it is one of my fav colors EVER. I love dusk, but I know I wouldn't wear it very often. Flourishing and rocket look super nice too.
So gorgeous! Thanks for sharing! I haven't been thinking about my few loose mineral shadows much lately but just before reading this, I'd played with the few I have and wondered why I haven't been using them. I've been really curious about this brand, and this post is setting me over the edge--rocket looks like a must-have. Good job enabling. I love your photos & application.
