As some of you already know, I ran a 5K with my best friend, Sarah. The morning of the event, I teased and curled my hair. My face was fully done up in my signature smokey eye and nude lip look. So what if the other runners thought I was a drag queen? This Korean version of RuPaul was going to cross that finish line in style!
Vee, the creator of Glamour Doll Eyes, was kind enough to send me six eye shadows to try out. (She is awesome, by the way!) I was thrilled! Clearly, smokey eyes aren't something I reserve for special occasions; they are part of my every day routine. High quality shadows are a must for me, since I wear so much of it.
Below are photos of what I received. I encourage you to click on the photographs to enlarge them. You have got to see these shadows up close to truly appreciate them!

As you can see, these shadows are nicely pigmented and come in a variety of colors. My favorite is "Just Dance". It is the sparkliest shade I have ever seen.
For all you Twilight fanpires, Glamour Doll Eyes even offers a line called "Twi-Shadows". How fun is that? Another bonus? They do not test on animals. (Sit down and simmer down, PETA.)
I really don't have any complaints about these shadows other than they are a bit messy to use and store. Obviously, that is an issue that plagues all loose shadows; there's not much you can do about it. I typically don't like loose shadows or pigments, but I love these!
Vee was kind enough to offer my readers 10% off any orders of $20.00 or more. Please note the discount does not apply towards collections, Goody Balms, or discontinued products. Use the code "katiegene" at checkout. This offer expires May 31, 2010.

P. S. I finally got my laptop charger in the mail! Whoo hoo! I will be doing a Glamour Doll Eyes FOTD some time the future. :)
