As promised I'm posting the swatches of Set 2 of the GlamourDoll Eyes Hallowe'en eyeshadows. You can find my swatches of Set 1 here:
I gotta say outta the two sets I think this one is my favourite, I love orange and rusty coloured shadows, and the orange shade named Infectious is seriously to die for. I tried 3 of these shadows in a look today and wow!
When I saw there were Hallowe'en sets coming up on glamourdolleyes.com I HAD to get them. Not only are the shades gorgeous but Hallowe'en is by far my favourite holiday, I love all things spooky and supernatural, and it gives you an excuse to go crazy with your costumes and make up which is always fun! :P haha.
The names of the shadows in this set are Undead, Infectious, Teenage Witch and Satan's Sheets and I gotta say I love them all such pretty colours! As with the last post I took pictures of the pigments in the pots both with and without flash, and did the same for a dry swatch of the shadows, then finally applied them on top of Benefit's F Y Eye primer. I'll give as much detail to the description of the colours below :D
Here's the picture of the full set and the awesome lil baggie they come in
The 1st shadow is named Undead, its a beautiful rusty burgandy coloured shadow with a kind of reddish dark pink shimmer too it, and has a slightly black undertone as you'll see in the swatches. These sort of colours are my favs and you don't find many colours like this one! Its amazing and these pictures soooo don't do it justice.
When I swatched this one dry it was more of a blackened red colour with a red shimmer to it that my camera didn't wanna pick up even with the soft flash.
But then on top of the primer it really made the burgandy and red pop even without the flash, it really is such a great colour, I think the Zombie Date Night eyelight would look soooo pretty as a liner on top of this shadow. Note to Self: Try this out!
Next was Infectious, I'm a Hugeeeeee fan of orange shadows, there is just something I can't describe that makes me love them, and this one is no exception! Its so gorgeous its unreal. Its super sparkly as you can see in the pictures below and has lil flecks of gold glitter in it.
Here's what it looks like in the pot:
And the Dry Swatches, its more goldy colored without a primer:
But then on top of primer the orange is bought out more and has a slight coppery tinge to it:
The next shadow was Teenage Witch which is a lovely light khaki green colour with gold and I think a few green sparkles thrown in there too :) I don't really own any colours like this one, so I was really happy to get this one its awesomeness ^^
It photographed kinda grey looking on my camera, but its a lot more khaki coloured in real life, and you can see the sparkles a lot better:
Without primer I think this one would be light enough to put over darker green matte shadows to add a lovely gold coloured sparkle to them, especially for flash photography:
Here's what it looks like over a primer, definitely more true to life, especially with a soft flash on, the bottom picture is pretty much spot on what the shadow looks like in daylight in the pot :)
And finally was the shadow Satan's Sheets, such an awesome highlight colour! Its a sort of pearly white but with amazing pink sparkles in it, I definitely didn't have a shade like this one in my collection! I think this one should be in the permanent line of GDE Shadows, its that pretty!
My camera didn't really pick the sparkles up with or without the flash unfortunately, but in natural light on your skin they are definiately there!
Here's the dry swatches for you to see looks more goldy coloured on my skin, and with a thin layer I think it'd be light enough to use as a highlighter on my face too, would look super pretty!
And here's the swatches on top of primer, makes it a lot more shimmery having something underneath for all the sparkles to stick to:
And there ya have it :) Like I said at the start this set is definitely my favourite of the two sets, but I'd still recommend getting both as they are Limited Editions and won't be around forever. And for anyone that is interested, I had a play around with Undead, Infectious, Satan's Sheets and Graveyard from the first set, and heres what I came up with:
Lemmie know what ya think :)
