Review & Swatches: Glamour Doll Eyes Nightmare Before Christmas & Edward Scissorhands Collections!

Hey Everyone!

Today I am going to show you the new Glamour Doll Eyes Nightmare Before Christmas and Edward Scissorhands Collections that released on Black Friday. These collections were released as a 4 shadow bundle on Black Friday and are now sold as individual shadows on the GDE Storenvy site. There is also a third collection that was based off of the movie Elf. I had to get these two collections as I am a HUGE Nightmare Before Christmas buff as well as a Tim Burton fan in general! I really enjoy the shadows that are in each of these collections and they are absolutely beautiful! These shadows seem to have a great amount of sparkle to them, which I LOVE! They are so soft and buttery and they glide on! Ok, enough rambling... Let's get into the swatches!

Sandy Claws:
  • GDE: a matte bright red base with a green sheen and red, green, and silver sparkles.
  • Me: I would say this shadow is a muted toned, yet still bold, red with a green sheen and reg, green, and silver sparkles throughout.
What's This:
  • GDE: a purple base with a golden orange sheen and green sparkle.
  • ME: a vibrant purple with a golden orange sheen and green sparkles throughout. 
Simply Meant To Be:
  • GDE: a taupe base with a subtle purple and orange sheen and turquoise and purple sparkles.
  • ME: I LOVE this shadow! It's a gorgeous mauve taupe with a purple (and slight orange) sheen. This shadow has turquoise and purple sparkles throughout.
Jack & Sally:
  • GDE: a matte black base with a blue sheen and silver, purple, and red sparkles.
  • ME: a black base with a strong indigo sheen. This shadow looks like it has multidimensional sparkles throughout. It's a gorgeous shadow. 
  • GDE: a darkened lavender with a red sheen and intense golden sparkle.
  • ME: a mauve-lavender shadow with a hint of taupe and a slight red sheen. This shadow has gold sparkle throughout. 
Topiary Genius:
  • GDE: green with a strong red and copper shift and sparkle.
  • ME: a muted green with a copper sheen with red and copper sparkles.
  • GDE: a deep gray with a strong purple and blue shift and white sparkles.
  • ME: I love this shadow and to me it's more of a blue with a gray hint to it. It has a strong purple  shift and white sparkles throughout.
...Hold Me:
  • GDE: a light off white with a sheer purple overlay and white sheen.
  • ME: this is a gorgeous highlight shadow. It's a beige-white shadow with a purple duo chrome effect. 
I am in love with these two collections. I really like how with the Edward Scissorhands Collection, the shadows are more muted but have strong sheens and sparkles. I cannot get enough! Each of these shadows are for sale for $6.00 each on the Storenvy site. 

My favorites from these collections are Simply Meant To Be, Jack & Sally, and Blend.Blend.Blend. 

Have you tried anything from these collections? What are your favorites?
