Glamour Doll Eyes Of The Month July 2013 Review

Yep, you all guessed it- I'm trying out another subscription!  While this is not a "new" subscription service, it is new to me, and I'm excited to share it with you!

Glamour Doll Eyes OTM (Of the Month) is a beauty subscription service that sends out a limited edition eye shadow loose pigment each month, for $8.  You can sign up for a 1, 2, 3, or 6 month subscription, on the 8th of each month.  Glamour Doll Eyes only offers 100 subscriptions of each month- you have to be quick to sign up to receive an OTM sub!  Each order from GDE comes with extras- samples of pigments with regular orders, and other extras with a OTM subscription.  Glamour Doll Eyes also has a shop with beautiful shades of eye shadow pigments, that are safe for the eyes, lips, face and nails.  Check out GDE today, and head over HERE to sign up to get an email reminding you to sign up for OTM on the 8th!

My package arrived safely in about a week or so, in a brown bubble mailer, shipped via USPS.  USPS misdirected my package, so it might have arrived sooner, but I'm still happy with the shipping time.

July 2013 OTM
I love how the OTM is packaged in a pretty organza bag- what a nice touch!

Insert Card

GDE sends cute business card sized insert cards, with information about the shade of shadow that you are receiving.  This month's shade was designed by Rachel, one of many ladies asked to create their own unique pigment color.

Back of the card

The back of the insert card talks about the extras included this month.

Additional cards
My package also included a couple GDE business cards, a card from Kiss My Sass Cosmetics (one of the extras this month is from them!), and a card from Sedona Lace.  Feel free to check these cosmetic companies out: at Kiss My Sass, coupon code GDEOTM0713 will save you 20% off your order, until 8/31/13, one time use; at Sedona Lace, promo code glamourdoll will earn you $4 off your next order (no expiration date listed).  I love me some discounts, so I will definitely be checking these sites out!

GDE ships all of their pigments shrink wrapped, and I really love that idea.  I know my little pots of color will make it to me safely!  As this is my first experience with GDE, let me just say that I am really impressed by both the size and quality of the pigments that I received. 

Sherbert July 2013 by Glamour Doll Eyes

I seriously love Sherbert in the summer- it's so rich and creamy, with a light orange taste.  This shadow seriously captures that feeling.

Swatch of Sherbert
This shimmery coral-orange shade has green micro glitter and is so pretty.  A little goes a long way, and this pretty shade is perfect for the summer- pair it with a green for a mermaid eye!

Casen July 2013 by Glamour Doll Eyes
Casen is a gorgeous blue, and is named for the newborn son of Sherbert's creator, Rachel.  While I think that sherbert is beautiful, Casen is definitely the star of this month's bag, in my opinion.  

Swatch of Casen
This beautiful baby/medium blue also has green micro glitter.  I seriously love this shade!

Emma Lipstick by Kiss My Sass Cosmetics sample

I love me some lippies, and was exicted to see this sample in my bag.  This pretty coral shade tastes like pink lemonade, and glides on smoothly.  

Swatch of Emma
I love how this lipstick is lightly pigmented, and while the sample looks small, there is actually plenty in the little pot- enough for several wears.  I'm going to check out Kiss My Sass' site soon!

I seriously love me some Starburst candies, and I thought it was sweet that GDE included some in my bag.  What a sweet summer treat!

Glamour Doll Eyes OTM July 2013
For a monthly subscription that was under $10, I am very impressed.  I will definitely be ordering from GDE again, and trying out some of their other pigment shades.  One thing that I forgot to mention, is that everything that I received in my bag is 100% vegan, and cruelty free.  This makes me SO happy, that I have found another company that is choosy about what ingredients they use, and don't test on our animal friends.

So, tell me, have you ordered from Glamour Doll Eyes before?  What did you think of them?  I signed up to be an affiliate for them, so stay tuned for referral links!

Until next time, my lovelies- stay average!
