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*

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...


  1. I have some of their colors as well and though I get to rarely wear them, I love them. Rotten Miracles is perhaps my absolute favorite blush as well.

    1. I haven't tried their blushes out but it is on my list of products to try next!

  2. I lve Geek Chic so much. I'm liking the look of Morningstar, I think I need more shadows from Superneutrals!

    1. Their shadows are gorgeous and I am in the same boat. I need more of the Superneutrals and all of their collections. ^_~
