I was sooo curious about this color when I saw the swatches online. It's a duochrome color (meaning from different angles, it appears to be a different color) and I personally have never worked with a duochrome before so I was intrigued but nervous that I'd get it and hate it. First let me show you the look I did using this color today.
Would you believe me if I told you the color on my lid is the same shadow that I used in my crease?? It is. That's the fun part of this duochrome color. It's like you get at least 3 colors in one. Let me show you what I mean...
See, with no base, it's got a burgandy kind of color happening, while over the black base, it turns almost green, and foiled it almost looks blue.
This color is amazing. Like for real. I am completely beyond happy that I chose this one which I was so hesitant on. This color blends like a dream! It has to be one of the smoothest pigments I've ever touched, it almost felt like a liquid with how it blended out. And while I don't personally know, I'd be willing to guess that this color is similar to MAC's "Blue Brown" pigment. From Glamour Doll Eyes, you get 2-2.5 grams of product (with no sifter, if you do choose to get a sifter, you'll get 1.5-2g of product) for $6.
What I used:
Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper
NYX JEP "Black Bean"
"Dino Spotz" foiled on lid
"Dino Spotz" applied dry in and slightly above crease
From Naked palette:
"Buck" to blend above the crease
"Naked" to blend from Buck up to highlight
"Virgin" as a highlight
L'oreal Lineur Intense Carbon Black liquid liner
L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara
Lime Crime "Coquette" lipstick
Revlon "Cupcake" lip butter
I'm stinkin in love with this look. It's neutral and pretty but has an element that makes it interesting, like you have to take a second look. And not to down the other colors I chose from Glamour Doll Eyes but I expect that this one will be my favorite. To me, it's a must have! I love it!!
Do you have any Glamour Doll Eyes colors? Or any duochromes? What's your opinion on them?
