I’m so excited about this month Glamour Doll Eyes OTM, because I almost didn’t get it! My 3-month subscription ended last month, meaning I had to be one of many fighting for a spot this month. Lucky I was able to grab one, but only for this month. Next month I’ll try again for another 3-month.
The bag this months was very interesting. In the past they’ve sent little see through bags, but this month, it is made of a opaque vinyl material, keeping it’s contents a surprise. Along with my bag of goodies is a little box of Mike & Ike. It didn’t know this before, but I really like Mike & Ike, so I’m glad they were included this month. I always look forward to the candy in the OTMs.
This month was an extra month, meaning GDE sent out another product along with the monthly pigment. Since I’ve signed up, there have been two extra months, the first being in March.
The pigment this month is S&M. This is a requested color from GDE subscriber that the owner choose to make. Through out this year, GDE plans to incorporate a few pigments into the OTM that subscribers help create!
S&M is a dark, almost black, purple with …. glitter. This is a few shades darker than February’s Toxic Grape. I can see this color being great for the outer corner or a purple smokey eye. I’ve been on a huge purple kick lately, so now I have some more purple to play with!
The extra for this month is probably what I’m most excited for, because it is a sneak peek at a soon to be re-released product! They included a full size of blush from their new powder blush collection.
The color I got is Risky Business. It is a medium pink with very subtle golden shimmer. As much as I love blush, I have yet to ever use a loose pigment blush, so this will be unmarked territory for me. Inside the packaging, unlike the pigments, there is a sifter, which I have mixed feelings about, only because in general, I think sifters are more trouble than they’re worth. At the same time, I really how difficult it would be to use this blush, especially with how pigmented it is, without one.
Also included was two samples of an upcoming collection from Glamour Doll Eyes. These are from the Matte^2: Masculine. The card included promises for a Feminine line later in the year. The two colors I received were Arrogant and Courageous. Neither of these colors are true mattes. Arrogant is a matte dark hunter green with has a blue sheen to it. Courageous is a matte stone gray with a golden peachy glitter. I surprisingly really like both of these colors, but I would say that Courageous is the more wearable of the two.
After last month being a little lack luster for subscription boxes, this OTM has really made me excited for what’s to come this month.
