Hello gorgeous zombies!
I hope you're all having a great week. I've had a very busy, and eventful week, and I'm glad school is starting soon for my littles. :)
Recently, once of my favorite indie companies, Tick:Tock Cosmetics reopened their doors after a brief hiatus! I was bummed when they closed because they have the *best* eyeshadow bases, in my opinion, out there! When I heard they reopened, I hauled ass to the website and purchased the full sized jars of black ("Black Hole") and white ("Milky Way") bases. (They also have a brown base called "Super Nova". At the time I placed my order, they were offering a full sized random eyeshadow for every $10.00 order placed, so I also received "Tick, Tick, Tick, Boom" which surprisingly I don't already own! Check out their Facebook group HERE to hear about special deals and new products.
(As always, please click images for maximum awesome!)
A quick note about these bases, is that unlike a few other creamy, white or black bases that you put under your eyeshadow, these do not (at least not on me) crease!
INGREDIENTS: Castor Oil, Titanium Dioxide, Carnauba Wax, Dimethicone, Microcrystalline wax, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E
Check out the sparkle in "Tick, Tick, Tick Boom"! WOW!
I'm not sure if the formula has changed with "Black Hole", but this time around, it wasn't AS creamy and pigmented as the last time I purchased these. It took a while to build up to the swatch you see above, but it did dry really fast and stayed put!
I decided to do a little test for you all using a sparkly light lavender eyeshadow on each base to show you how they can make a difference in your eyeshadow colors and also how they can make colors POP! I used Espionage Cosmetics "Epic" eyeshadow.
Do you see that gold sparkle? DO YOU! Look how the two bases change the way the sparkle comes through. On "Milky Way" you can see much more of the gold flash within the eyeshadow and on "Black Hole", a lot more of the blue base in the eyeshadow comes out. These are just a few of the reasons I always wear an eyeshadow base under my eyeshadow.
I'm still drooling looking at this picture! Now, I need to actually DO this on my eyes!
"Black Hole" and "Milky Way" are $6.00 each for a 5 gram jar packed full of product. It looks as if T:TC will soon be offering mini sizes of the bases as well. Full sized eyeshadow from T:TC are $5.50, which also come in 5 gram jars with sifters and stickers. T:TC is currently offering up a $12.00 grab bag that contains 3 random full sized eyeshadow. What better way to try them out if you haven't already. :)
I can't wait to play with my eyeshadow again, now that I have my reliable, trusty bases again!
