Geek Chic Cometics Revisited!


TGIF Zombies!

I have had the pleasure to watch Geek Chic Cosmetics grow leaps and bounds in the year+ since I did an initial swatch post of 4 of their eyeshadow. (See that post HERE!) So much has changed on the website...so many new collections...so many pretties! I was thrilled to be able to do a little swaparoo with the GCC's owner Chantel in order to bring you this revisited post. Geek Chic does NOT get enough lovin', so let me show you why they deserve some hard love.



All the pretties lined up! (HOLOGRAPHIC glitter? WHUT WHUT!)




*everything swatched over Hi-Fi Cosmetics Shadow Fix*

Ahh, so much pretty! Of this lot We Are Coming ("Timey Wimey"), Frag ("Glitter Grenade"), All Love is Unrequited ("Last Best Hope"), Shammy ("10 Man Raid"), Everybody Lies ("Last Best Hope") and Touched by Darkness ("Last Best Hope") are my absolute favorites.

You can't really get a good idea of the massive glitter attack in "All Love is Unrequited" from these pictures. It is amazing. Same with "We are Coming"..but trust me, it's there. "Touched by Darkness" is a lot more white based than the swatch online portrays it to be, but it's FULL of multicolored glitter. It is so fun and I can't wait to apply it over a dark based eyeshadow!





Now of course, how can I forget to talk about Chrysalis? Not only is it a gorgeous bright plum color, it's freaking pigmented! Just a little goes a long way! It's also very smooth to apply and lasts forever.

In the year + since my original post about Geek Chic Cosmetics, I'm just amazed at how much the formula of the eyeshadow has improved. Each eyeshadow is super pigmented, complex and easy to blend. Plus, the collections are so fun and if you're a geek at heart who loves makeup, GCC is definitely for you!

Visit the GCC website to pick up some of your very own pretties and then go show the crew some love on Facebook!

Do you own any GCC? What are you favorite products/colors?
