Let’s talk geek chic!  Why?  It’s all I have today.  And it’s completely awesome.  Last month I mentioned getting Geekchic’s color of the month: Pretty Guardian.  Still a great color, it’s become my go-to when I don’t have time to do much outside of a little color, or I just want a simple “natural plus glitter” look.  Well June’s color of the month was The Last Cetra, a lipstick.  I’m forever on the hunt for a good lipstick.  I have full lips and it’s really hard (at least for me) to wear lipstick that doesn’t make them stick out like a bratz doll.  Yeah, I’m bad with make up, I completely admit this.  I’m learning.

Being a Final Fantasy fan, I had to have it, of course.  I waited till the end of the month before I gave in and bought it, along with 5gr jar of Blood Wine eye shadow (more on that in a moment)  Again, I curse you geekchic, for the $10 minimum order.  The lipstick is a soft purply pink.  Very girly, very reminiscent of Aerith.  I think it suits my skin nicely, though I’m not an “expert” on such things.  I need to learn how to wear lipstick better- it always comes off really easily, though so far The Last Cetra has lasted longer than most lipsticks I’ve worn.

The Blood wine eyeshadow is awesome.  I’ve been loving reds on my eyes.  I never thought I’d like reds but have found that they look super awesome with my coloring.  I’ve been using zantetsuken as eye liner (rotating with brotherhood of crows and non-euclidean) but really wanted something that would flow with the red.  Black with red glitter…Now Blood wine isn’t like that at all.  It’s closer to a deep burgundy, but it still works really well.  In pictures and from afar, it looks black, but up close, you can see that it’s not.  I used it as liner and really thought it looked perfect.

Highly recommend both, though again, my review is done after the color of the month is available.  Geekchic is great company, and while shipping can take some time (I think almost 2 weeks for me) it’s mainly because it’s done in small hand mixed batches.  It’s worth the wait.  It’s good stuff that has me gaining a new hobby, one this nerd never thought she’d enjoy.  Now to find a good mascara…and a better camera.
