Peach, Olive, Brown EOTD with Geek Chic

Everyone knows I love Geek Chic Cosmetics. They recently released a collection called "Last Best Hope" inspired by the show Babylon 5, and I think it's my favorite collection of theirs so far. The colors are so pretty and sparkly. 


I did a look yesterday using three of the colors from the collection:

  • Universal Destiny: "...a soft coral-toned peach with a strong, vibrant green shift."
  • Perhaps: "...a warm-toned chocolate brown with a strong turquoise shift." 
  • We Are One: "...a deep-toned olive green with strong antique gold interference and gold/copper sparkle."

Each of these colors is so pretty I could look at them all day long. The photos I took don't remotely capture all of the sparkle, especially in We Are One, which is so amazingly loaded with sparkle. However, Geek Chic has provided video on their site to show the sparkle of each color. We Are One just might blow your mind with its amazing brilliance. 


Here's the look I created with these three colors. I really like how they brightened my entire face.

    1. The color that looks blue in the photos is actually brown with a blue shift. Totally looks brown IRL, but the camera picked it up as blue!
