In the Pursuit of Fabulous-Review of Geek Chic Cosmetics

Hello again lovelies!
   I am feeling SUPER productive today since I am tackling two blog posts in one day. O.O But I just couldn't wait any longer to do the review for Geek Chic Cosmetics. This company combines two of my favorite things: makeup and geek culture. Honestly it just doesn't get any better than that. With collections ranging from eyeshadow sets inspired by amazing TV series, to button masher nail polishes, gorgeous glitters and scents based of tragic women in history they have something for everyone. Their formulas for everything that they carry are both gluten free and cruelty free. So not only are the colors and collections based off awesome geeky inspiration but they are racking up the karma points and looking out for their customer as well. While their pictures of their pigments are gorgeous on their site (and it makes me wonder what camera they are using cause I need it ) I always want to see colors against skin. I love that they are awesome with providing swatches against skin with each and every shadow. But if you are anything like I am, you also want to see pictures of the shadows used in looks to see how blendable and pigmented they are. So Dreadful has you covered with both swatches and looks I did with their pigments.

*All swatches were done over NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk*
Last Best Hope Colletion and Summer Collection Swatches

It appears that this collection is discontinued but the colors are still gorgeous.

Swatches from the Strange Aeons and Go Boldly Collections

Swatches from TimeyWimey and SuperNeutrals Collections

Look done with So Say We All Collection and Morningstar.

Look done with the Summoner Collection and Touched by Darkness.

Look done with the SuperNeutrals and Love in Uniform

Done with Fallen and the Strange Aeons Collection

Soft Tardis look done with the Timey Wimey Collection
The tutorial for the Soft Tardis look can be found here:

Now that I have spammed you with enough pictures, on with the ratings...

Color Variety- 9 out of 10 bats
   Like the wide variety of geek subculture that they cover, their colors are just as varied. Each collection seems to embody the colors of the movie, game, TV series, etc that it was based on. For example the latest collection, Summoner, is full of shimmer and sparkle just like the avatars that are called forth in the video game that lay waste to your enemies.The So Say We All Collection has three gorgeous gray shades which are all different (which my camera failed to pick up the differences) but gives you the same gray feel of the ships on Battlestar Galactica. And honestly , I am not even going to lie about it, they made me squeal like a school girl with their Dr Who and Lovecraft inspired collections.

Color Pigmentation-9 out of 10 bats
  Their color pigmentation is just superb.The shimmery colors have tons of sparkle and shimmer to them and a good balance of pigmentation. I hate shadows that are nothing but pure shimmer and the color is nonexistent  I didn't have that problem here. While most of the colors that I received were shimmers the matte colors are just as pigmented and they all blend like a dream.

Affordability-9.5 out of 10 bats
   If the colors and the collections don't automatically make you squeal like a schoolgirl, the price will.All of the pigments run 5.99 which is extremely reasonable. The jars (which I am guessing are 5gm jars) are packed full and shipped with sifters (which I instantly remove when the jars get in my hot little hands). They also have a set of the month which is half price for the entire month! So you can get the whole collection of just a couple of pigments you can't live without for half price.

Overall-9.5 out of 10 bats
   I don't how to put this any plainer that this. I simply adore Geek Chic Cosmetics. They have combined two things that I love, makeup and geek culture. Their color variety is fantastic. It is diverse as the geek culture itself. The pigmentation is amazing. The shimmers have just the right balance of sparkle and color and the mattes are just as vivid all at a price that can't be beat. Not to mention they have a monthly sale that you can take advantage up and stock up on entire monthly selection or just the colors you want from it. This is a company that you don't want to miss out on and you will want to keep an eye to see what kind of gorgeous colors they will be coming up with next. So check them out and tell them I sent you. ^_~

Stay tuned for another circle lens review! Until next time my dears...

Gentle Tardis Tutorial Featuring Geek Chic Cosmetics and Max Sherbert Lenses from Kiwiberry-1

Hello lovelies!
   I am back after a little bit of a rough month. As some of you may know that I recently lost everything on my computer including pictures, swatches, tutorials that I had in the works. Not to mention all the personal photos of the Dreadful family. So in all honesty, I was really bummed about it so it took me some time to get motivated again to redo EVERYTHING. But things weren't going to get done on their own and I needed to stop moping about it. So I am back with a new tutorial done slide show style on YouTube. This is the last slide show style tutorial I am doing and the newest one which I just got finished filming is all live. O.O So as soon as this tutorial is done I am going to work on editing the newest tutorial and the finishing the review for the Geek Chic Cosmetics which were the featured brand for this tutorial. So on with the tutorial..

Here is the complete list of products I used with links to the actual items...

In the Pursuit of Fabulous-Reveiw of GNG Floral ML1 lenses from Kiwiberry1

Hello lovelies!
  It is the beginning of a new month and I am back with another circle lenses review. This time I am reviewing this GNG Floral ML1 lenses in pink from Kiwiberry1 Collection. While at first I was hesitant about pink lenses, I am quickly falling in love with them. These are my second pair of pink lenses and needless to say I will be getting more. These lenses just scream delicate and girly to me with the combination of the light pink color and the intricate pattern of little flowers. Normally I prefer bolder lenses since I like bolder looks these lenses quickly won me over and you can see why. Just take a peek at these gorgeous lenses.

You can make out the small flower pattern against my dark eyes.

They go will with dramatic looks...

As well as everyday looks...

Now on with the review..

Enlargement-8 out of 10 bats
   These lenses are listed as 14.2 mm which do enlarge your eyes but not dramatically. While I do prefer larger lenses for the more dramatic look, theses lenses do help you achieve the "dolly eye look" without being  too dramatic. You will notice a slight difference from a distance but your eyes while larger will still have a "natural" appearance and make people second guess what is different about you.

Color and Design-8.5 out of 10 bats
    The color and design are really gorgeous with this lenses. The pink is a really soft pink and not as opaque as I would like them to be in order to stand out against my dark brown eyes. They do lighten my eyes considerably and would look amazing on someone with lighter eyes. The design is really lovely. The small delicate flower pattern just makes me feel super girly wearing them and you can tell slightly with the close up but it is not visible far away which I like. These would be a good date night lens when you date gazes into your eyes the flowers will be a surprise for them. You also get the flower look without having the larger flower petals that some other lenses have.

Comfort- 9 out of 10 bats
   These lenses are extremely comfortable and easy to put in. The website has the water content listed as 38% which is decent but if you have dry eyes the lenses may dry your eyes out faster than mine so carry drops with you if that is the case. I didn't have a problem wearing these lenses for the entire day around 7 hours without any irritation or dryness issues.If you do wear them longer than 7 hours I would recomend to carry drops as well since your eyes do get tired.

Overall-8.8 out of 10 bats
    Theses lenses are really great overall. The enlargement is nice and noticeable, giving a natural dolly eye effect, without being too overly dramatic. The soft pink color is a nice transition to pink lenses for those who may still be on the fence about having pink contacts. While they are not as opaque as I would like to stand out against my dark eyes, they do lighten them considerably. The pattern is soft and delicate and very girly without the larger petal look that some other lenses have. Finally, these lenses are extremely comfortable with a decent water content that I didn't have any issues wearing for a full day.If you are looking for a delicate and girly lens or a bit hesitant about taking the plunge into getting pink lenses these are definitely lenses for you.
