I have quite the exciting post for you today! I have been looking forward to this for a while since Halloween is my FAVORITE time of year and Glamour Doll Eyes is one of my absolute favorite makeup companies, I was super excited when I saw that Vee posted on the GDE Facebook Page if any bloggers would be interested in purchasing the 2012 Halloween Sets a little early to blog about them! So of course, I jumped on the opportunity to purchase them so I could have them all swatched for you by the time the sets come out!
Fist off, how cute is this packaging that the sets come with?! I absolutely LOVE the stickers too!
Here is what the Halloween jar top stickers look like!
And now for the swatches! Underneath each swatch photo I will follow with my description of the shadows :)
Each shadow was swatched over GDE Control Freak Primer.
Each of the photos are taken in artificial light with no flash.
Halloween Set 1:
|From Left to Right: Frankie's Girl, Permanent Address, Gruesome, & Corpselike|
Frankie's Girl is the perfect "pea soup" green color for Halloween; this shadow is a matte finish.
Permanent Address is a deep taupe color with baby blue and purple shimmer throughout.
Gruesome is a bright, vibrant pink, similar to Phyrra but without the strong purple undertone.
Corpselike is the perfect highlight shade, it has a slight golden hue to it.
Halloween Set 2:
|From Left to Right: Bat Wings, Vampire Wedding, Macabre, & Apparition (Eye Light)|
Macabre is much prettier than I anticipated, it is a mustard-like yellow with very slight shimmer over a matte finish.
Apparition is an absolutely gorgeous eye light (glitter) with purple, yellow, and green glitter.
Bat Wings is a beautiful black with deep blue, purple, and green shimmer throughout.
Vampire Wedding is a deepened brick red color with slight red and gold shimmer throughout.
|A darker picture of Bat Wings to show how truly black this shadow is and the shimmer throughout!|

Both of the sets will be available October 1st, 2012!
Are you planning to purchase either (or both) of the sets?! Which shadows are your favorites?
