Glamour Doll Eyes (GDE) Glitter Tube Swatches

Hey All! Today my post is on the new Glamour Doll Eyes Glitter Tubes. This collection is going to be released May 12, 2014. According to Vee, the owner of GDE, she said all of the glitter names are based on some of her favorite songs. Each tube contains approximately 1.25 - 1.50 tsp of glitter. Without further adieu, here are the swatches (swatched over Foil Me as a base):

These two colors are special...because....they are my babies!!! GDE has an option to create a custom glitter (AND name them!). Of COURSE I couldn't only do one, so I made two. 
This was my 1st time experimenting with creating a color, but I'm pretty happy with how they came out. I tried one that was .004 Hex Size and then I made one with .008 Hex Size to try out the difference. Below I have the ingredients I used and how I named them/why I named them.

The top color is Party Time. It has: Black- .004 20%, Brass- .004 20%, Gold- .004 20%, Silver- .004 20%, Holographic White- .004 20%. I'm not good at creating descriptions for colors :p BUT you get the idea based off of the ingredients. I named it Party Time because it reminds me of New Years Eve because of the colors I chose.
Hex Size: .004

The bottom color is Watermelon Delight. It has: Green/Gold- .008 25%, Rose- .008 25%, Copper- .008 25%, Holographic Silver- .008 25%. The reason I named it Watermelon Delight is because green and pink remind me of watermelons :p I'm clearly AWFUL at naming colors :p
Here are a few pictures of me wearing Nothing Without You:

 Here is a picture with Hopeless Hearts (it is not blended out as well as I'd hope but oh well!):

All I can say about this collection is: WOW! GDE has outdone themselves again. I love love love this collection, I'm so glad I got the whole collection and that I get to unveil it to you guys early (I did pay for it myself though).

You should all know by now I give honest reviews on everything I review, so I can honestly say that this collection is well worth buying. It isn't expensive and there is a GOOD amount of glitter in each tube. There is such range in colors (as you can see form the swatches).

My favorite shades are: Hopeless Hearts, Waiting for Disaster, Let All The Cats Go Free, Nothing Left of Her, Empty Dreams, and Nothing Without You. (Obviously I love my custom colors too, but let's be real, the main collection is better :p)

My least favorite shades are: Ride Shotgun because it's quite sheer and I feel like it would be hare to build up. BUT that being said, I think it can be used in a REALLY fun/cool way. Also, I don't LOVE Sick Lullabies because it seems a little too hectic for me. I'm not sure that I'd wear it often.

I hope you liked these swatches! To join the mailing list to be e-mailed when the collection is released go here!

GDE has a disclaimer with their glitters, please read below: 
While our glitter is superfine milled, the FDA has not approved it for the use of color cosmetics in the United States. They have however been approved for all cosmetics uses in the European Union as well as have them the EU's REACH criteria. What makes it safe for European Countries but not for the United States is not known to me but just be warned this is NOT eye safe by FDA guidelines and is not advertised as an eye product. However if you choose to use this glitter on your eyes/face, do so at your own discretion. If irritation occurs, stop use immediately. 

I have used multiple of the glitters on my eyes and have had no issues, BUT that doesn't mean that you won't. Please use cation.
