Yesterday I received my very first order from Geek Chic Cosmetics. After spying on their website for a very long time, I decided to give it a go with their 4th of July sale. It was perfect timing because a few weeks earlier they had released their Hannibal-inspired collection called This Is My Design. Obviously I had to try it! It also was the perfect excuse to pick up some samples of their Cthulhu/Lovecraft-inspired collection—called Strange Aeons—that I’ve been eyeing since its release.
I had to wait a long time for the order to arrive but they kindly apologized and explained why (a large amount of orders placed during the sale) without me having to contact them first. A+ for customer service!
Since it was my first purchase from the brand, I decided to buy only two fullsized eyeshadows and four samples. As you can see in the pictures, the samples are quite generous.
From This Is My Design:
Professional Curiosity is described on their website as a “plum-toned taupe pearl based shadow with aqua and cobalt shimmer and a subtle turquoise shift.”
He’s Eating Them is described on their website as a “rusty metallic chestnut red.”
Ravenstag is described on their website as a “blackened starry blue with a hint of red shimmer.”
Tattle Crime is described on their website as a “bold copper based red shadow with oodles of copper and red sparkle.”
I wish I could capture in pictures the shimmer of Professional Curiosity!
From Strange Aeons:
Antequarian is described on their website as a “glowing copper with gold iridescence and sparkle.”
Madness is described on their website as a “deep wine shade with multi-colored sparkle.”
I think the descriptions are accurate. My pictures don’t do justice to the prettiness of them—even though I tried to translate it into the image. The best thing is: they blend like a dream!
A plus for me is that the shimmer is very subtle once applied and blended, making them more wearable (I’m a creature of mattes).
I’m really impressed with the quality of these eyeshadows considering the price and the amount you get. I’m tempted to buy a fullsized Antequarian, and Tattle Crime—because COPPERS with these chestnut-amber-ish eyes of mine!
Which eyeshadow from Geek Chic Cosmetics should I buy next?
