Yep, I just received another shipment of Glamour Doll Eyes shadows this week and I think this is the most impressed I have been. Oh boy, did I need to be impressed this week. After a return to uni and a stack of reading/writing/researching to do, I needed pretty relief. So, I ordered six shadows from the usual collection, one from the 80s collection and two eye lights and I was very impressed. As mentioned before. This time I decided to order some colours that I would never usually choose. I am so glad I did because those ones ended up being my favourites. So, away we go:

1. Jerrica



Jerrica is from the 80s collection and inspired by the show Jem. This looks a lot more vibrant on the website but it is a lovely, kind of citrus yellow with sparkle. It's pastel but still vibrant. It's really beautiful and I am loving it. I think this would be a great yellow to have in your collection if you want something that can be both subtle (when blended out) and vibrant (when packed on).

2. Phyrra



The website describes Phyrra as "hot pink" which I definitely disagree with. This is definitely a more purple pink  magenta to me and that was a little disappointing. But, like all GDE shadows it blends well and is as vibrant as the images show. Just not my favourite pink.

3. Sex Appeal



Sex appeal is a "blend of silver and teal" says the GDE website. Now, this one definitely reflects purple. It has an awesome peacock effect with swirls of teal and purple. It changes colour depending on where the light is hitting it. It's absolutely gorgeous, and super unique. I love this.

4. Urban Trash



Matte black. Probably the best I have ever used. This is way better than the Sugarpill matte black that I own. It's just so damned black! It's unbelievable. There's a lot of fall out but there always is with matte black shadows. Seriously, if you are wanting the deepest, blackest black there is you must buy this. I'm a fan.

5. Juicy Mango



The most gorgeous orange shadow on the planet. I got this one thinking that it would be totally unwearable and a joke but it is so beautiful. It is a beautiful mango sorbet orange with pink shimmer. The pink is an absolutely beautiful touch. So wearable and like many GDE shadows it can be totally wearble or outlandish. Whatever you want. Again, if you are in the market for orange shadows, don't go past this one.

6. Jealousy



This is a beautiful metallic green. It reminds me of Poison Ivy and would so fit into the upcoming Illamasqua collection. I am in love with this colour. Another one of the best eye-shadows I have ever used. Totally green. Totally metallic. Totally awesome. So intense. I don't even have words. This is great.

7. I also got an awesome deep blue shadow called Hello, Brooklyn but the images seem to be removed from the GDE site meaning it might not be sold from now on. It's shame because this was my favourite. A totally metallic, deep blue with glitter. It is super unique and I love it.

8. Little Black Dress



Little black dress is a super fine black glitter. I'm not overly impressed with this one. It's a little clumpy and not as sparkly as I would like. I probably wouldn't buy this one again but I'll try it over a matte black (URBAN TRASH!!) and get back to you. But, on its own I'm not in love.

9. Hollywood



This is a silver glitter. The sickest, most sparkly silver glitter I have ever used. I love this. I wore it over a wet silver shadow and it adhered beautifully, felt smooth to the touch and didn't fall off at all during the night. It is absolutely amazing. I would recommend it to anyone who adores a bright, sparkly, statement making eye look. I'm so all about this.

So, there you go. More GDE. There will be at least another two posts on this as I have another seven shadows coming this week and I recently received the Twilight collection which I must review for y'all. Yep, now I must return to the mundane drudgery of Sunda
