Dawn Eyes Cosmetics

Awhile back, around mid June, I won a contest on Dawn Eyes Cosmetics's (DEC) blog and the prize was 5 samples of my choice. I was really excited to try Dawn's eye shadows because her company was started as a direct result of the closing of the beloved Aromaleigh (AL). She bought most of her raw ingredients from Kristen (former owner of AL) and I was hoping that Dawn's shadows would be similar in quality and uniqueness.

My samples were sent to me in a regular first class mail envelope along with a short hand-written note. I don't really know what her normal TAT for her regular orders are but I did receive the samples quite quickly. I think it took about 3-5 business days to reach me. The samples were sent in small 2x2 baggies and each had pretty generous amount of shadow (enough for several applications). There were no ingredients listed on the samples but they can be found quite easily on her website. On to the swatches...

Breathless - Gorgeous silvery white with subtle holographic sparkles. Sort of reminds me of MPZ Unicorn's Pee but this one is a little more refined.

Blurple - Deep blue based purple with shimmery purple and blue sparkle. This is a very unique color and I don't have anything like it in my collection. 

Merry Go Round - This is a beautiful turquoise with gold duochrome. Absolutely gorgeous!

Sparkling Tea Roses - Soft, feminine dusty rose with shimmer.

Feed Me Seymour - Bright, opaque aquamarine with silvery shimmer. This reminds me of Hi-Fi Cosmetics Kokomo but this one is definitely more opaque.

DEC definitely did not disappoint with her shadows! They are very soft and silky in their application and they're so easy to blend out. I just placed an order with her today because she's having a big sale in honor of reaching 500 fans on Facebook! So go check DEC out and take advantage of her amazing sale!

@Mary, You're welcome!

@Jill, Dawn is amazing and considering she's only been open for a few months she has quite the range of shadows already!
