I love Indie makeup
brands. In my experience they always have the coolest products. I am
always searching for new ones, which brought me to Geek Chic Cosmetics.
The name itself caught my eye. I admit proudly that I'm a nerd. So when I
found this brand, I was super excited to check it out. When I started
looking around their website (Geekchiccosmetics.com) I instantly fell in
Geek Chic Cosmetics specializes in handmade cruelty free,
gluten free and filler free makeup with a geeky twist. All products are
free of parabens, talc, non-organic preservatives and bismuth
oxychloride. They have many different products
including foundation, blush, lipsticks (dubbed Joysticks) and
eye shadows. Most products are vegan. Each product is made to order,
although it takes longer to
get I think that is very cool.
Their eye shadow collections are
what drew me in the most. They have many different collections based on
different geeky pop culture things. When I saw that they have a line
based on my favorite movie, The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Science
Fiction Double Feature) I absolutely needed to try Geek Chic Cosmetics.
ordered four eye shadow samples and one full sized eyeshadow. They
include a free sample with every order as well. I love that samples are
offered (at only $1.25). I would recommend ordering some samples, some
of the colors look a bit different than in the swatches on their
In different lighting:
I love the little business card that was included.
Today I will be reviewing and swatching all of the eye shadows that I got from Geek Chic. The lighting in my house is horrible, which is why I don't do many posts with swatches. My swatches don't completely do the eye shadows justice, they are so much more beautiful in person.
full sized eye shadow I bought is As You Wish... From the Story Book
Love collection. Each eye shadow comes in a clear plastic jar with labels
at the top indicating the collection name and labels on the bottom
indicating the color name and ingredients. There is a sifter in each
jar, which makes the product easier to work with. Overall, great
Now the samples. Each sample comes in a plastic clam
shell. I really do like how they are packaged, it is so much better than
just coming in plastic bags. Each sample has a label like the ones at
the bottom of the full sized jars. I did end up transferring my samples
to different containers though, to make them easier to use.
bought We Are Coming, Rose Tint My World, The Spider, Viking King and
The Trickster was given to me as a free sample. With each swatch below, the product over primer is on the right, the product without primer is on the left.
Tint My World from the Science Fiction Double Feature (Rocky Horror
Picture Show based) line. The name certainly influenced my decision to
sample this particular eyeshadow, Rose Tint My World is probably my
favorite song from Rocky Horror. Such a beautiful and unique color. I
definitely want the full sized.
We Are Coming
from the Timey Wimey collection (based on Doctor Who). I absolutely
love Doctor Who and this eye shadow definitely fits with the different
colored glitter. I can see myself using this color a lot.
The Spider from the Win or
Die collection (based on Game of Thrones). This is another collection,
being a Game of Thrones fan that I needed to check out. It is a very lovely color.
King from the Fangbangers Quartet collection (based on True Blood).
True Blood is my favorite show, this was the second collection that I
saw that I absolutely needed to try. Not only is Viking King named after
one of my favorite characters (Erik Northman), but it is such a
beautiful gold color.
The Trickster from the Superneutrals (Supernatural based)
collection. I was so happy when I found out that this was my free sample. I
have started watchingSupernatural and I
wear neutral eye shadow colors a lot.
waited a few weeks to write this review. I like with any review to give
myself time to test the product so I can give a thorough and honest
review. After a few weeks of use I have come to these conclusions. Every single eye shadow is very pigmented and buildable. They blend and
glide on so well. The formula feels great. They didn't wear off of
crease whenever I wore them. I love these eye shadows so much and
they definitely exceeded my expectations. Every color turned out to be
beautiful and well worth the money. Someday I will for sure purchase
full sizes of some of these. There are other products I want to try as
I love Geek Chic Cosmetics, they are one of the coolest
and most fun brands I have ever used. It makes me so happy that I found a
brand that combines my love of makeup with the love of some of the many
fandoms I'm a part of. They make me even more proud to be geeky and
chic. If you are a part of the fandoms mentioned in this post or any
other that Geek Chic has a product based on, you need to try it.
