Glamour Doll Eyes Review and Swatches

I ordered two sample sets from Glamour Doll Eyes. I ordered the Power Outage set, and the glitter set. I absolutely love these glitters. They are so fine, they are great for making your own glitter liner, and they are sooo bright. The shadows not so much. It's a cool idea, it's a bunch of matte black shadow with different colored glitter in each, but the glitter doesn't really show up, and the shadow is streaky, chunky, and hard to blend. I think it's just the collection I chose tho, because I have seen this brand used plenty of times on youtube, and it looks awesome, which is why I was so excited to try it out. I had a very negative experience with this company tho. I placed my order on Dec. 9th, and didn't recieve my stuff until Dec 31st. When my package got here, all the makeup (all 16 jars) were thrown into a plain mailer with no bubble wrap or protective wrapping of any kind. Two of my jars leaked product. The jars lids are held on by a piece of tape, which tore up my manicure trying to peel off. It looks as tho my jars that leaked were cracked. The owner however, gave me a refund for the two cracked jars, and then sent me a gift certificate to return. At first I wasn't planning on ordering again, but I'm pretty excited to give it another try, as I was looking forward to the shadows, and I picked a collection I can't really work with. The first pic is with flash, the second is without. The glitters are swatched over UDPP, and the shadows are over NYX jumbo pencil in Black Bean.
