Dawn Eyes Cosmetics swatches and mini review

I've been a bad, bad blogger, I'm quite behind on my reviews, but I'm back with a mini review for you of Dawn Eyes Cosmetics! Let's get right down to it, shall we?

Ordering/Shipping: I ordered a 5-sample blogger review pack from Dawn Eyes on 10/3/11 for $2.50 w/free shipping. Good deal right? I ordered through their web store (linked at the bottom of this review). I'm not crazy about the look and navigation on the site, but it's not too bad, and everything has a swatch, and that is what is important to me. I received my product on 10/14/11, so shipping was average - not lightning quick, not unbearably long; good then.

My stuff came wrapped like a little psychedelic present in tissue paper, of course inside a mailer (I can't remember if it was bubble wrapped or not, because I'm a naughty blogger and fell  off the face of the earth for a bit since I received it).

Samples are packaged in little labeled baggies, inside of larger baggies. No ingredient information on labels, but that can be found on the Dawn Eyes website.

Swatches were done over Darling Girl Glitter Glue. 

I ordered 5 colors and received 2 freebie samples. I always love getting freebies, it just gives me a little more happy! I didn't have trouble working with any of the colors (even the matte, Nude) and found them smooth and easy to apply. Pretty pretty, right?

The standouts for me in this group are Super Sparkle Black Gold and Gold Gilded Blue. I also see myself wearing Plain Soft Rose and Spring Buds. I want to wear Nude but I can't figure out how to make it work on me (color placement wise) yet. Amazing Base and How Sweet the Sound, although very pretty, may just be too sheer sparkly for my tastes.

Overall Thoughts: I'm really glad I tried Dawn Eyes Cosmetics out. I think this company has some gems to be found in their shadows, and I am pleasantly surprised at the colors and quality of product. Pricing is standard, shipping price is fair, and shipping time is average. I would order again.

You can find Dawn Eyes Cosmetics on Facebook or you can go to their website to browse around or place an order.

Mini-Disclaimer: Products were purchased by me for review. Opinions are my own and I was not compensated for review.
