Glamour Doll Eyes - Circus Collection Swatches!

It is finally that time! I have received my package full of circus goodies. If you order full size jars or sample jars you will receive them in a box, sample baggies do no come with the box. Inside I received two tickets, the circus business card and a cotton candy flavored lollipop (none are shown in the following photos). The packaging of these shadows is truly amazing. I love every little detail put into this collection.

There are eight shadows in this collection, they are:
Bearded Lady - medium to dark brown inspired by the luscious beards of the women of the sideshow.  The silver shimmer throughout add a hint of femininity.
Big Top - mimicking canvas tents, this medium toned yellow with red shimmer ties together the traditional colors of the circus all in one.
Cotton Candy - who says cotton candy has to be pink? this light to medium blue with pink shimmers brings forth the playfulness of the spun sugar treat.
Electric Chair - FLASH! This satiny/velvety white, somewhat metallic looking shadow is inspired by the shock of the electrical current. JOLT!
Fiji Mermaid - this greenish blue tells the story of a commonly used sideshow act. The Fiji Mermaid is alive and real with green shimmer undertones, reminiscent of scales.
Fire Eater - insipired by the heat and excitement of the fire eaters act this eye light uses red, yellow and orange colors to bring the fire-y spark.
Oddity - is a very unique blend of shimmer and matte. This is a lime green but almost looks duochrome as well.
Sword Swallower - down the hatch it goes! This semi metallic silver with silver sparkles embodies the shine and sharpness of the swords used in this traditional act.

All of the shadows
Aren't they just lovely

Sword Swallower

all were swatched over bare skin except fire eater which was patted over LA Splash Splash Proof Sealer eyeshadow sealer/base

If I had to pick a favorite I think I would pick Fiji Mermaid or Big Top because I do not have any colors even close to them. The pigmentation is wonderful, they are all very smooth and silky. All these colors go together well. I also really like that Cotton Candy is blue instead or pink. If you would like to know more about this collection you should check out what Natasha (myeyeshadowisodd) has to say about it.

What do you think of this collection? Will you be picking up any of these colors?
