I made my first purchase from Geek Chic Cosmetics recently and here are my thoughts etc.

I made a purchase because someone in a Facebook group asked if someone could make a yellow shadow with all different colors of glitter and the owner of Geek Chic made the shadow which the person who requested it wanted it called combustible lemon. While I was browsing I picked up a lip color specifically because it was named my little pwny.

I really like all of the packaging that everything came in and all of the labels are awesome. The one thing that I did not like was my full size eye shadow and lip stick were messy which you will see in the pictures below. In the swatch pictures the swatch on the left is dry and on the right is over Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue.

Shammy GWP. I really love this shade. It’s soft, blendable, and not gritty at all.

Combustible Lemon. You can see in this picture how messy the eye shadow was. The jar is shrink wrapped and the blob of shadow you see on the side is between the jar and the wrap.

This is what the jar looked like after opening. Shadow was all over outer part where lid screws on. I was very disappointed.

The shadow is pretty but overall I’m not impressed. The glitter in the shadow is large and gritty feeling.

My Little Pwny Joystick. This wasn’t as messy as the eyeshadow but the top of the stick was flaky.

For the most part I like the lip color but it is gritty just like the shadow. It’s also semi sheer which the website does say but it applies opaque in spots and sheer in others leading to uneven application.

Do you have any Geek Chic products?
