Hello Beautiful People
So here is a very quick little review on 3 of the shades in Geek Chic Cosmetics latest Scapers collection I was sent these 3 shades for consideration to review, I was stoaked to get the Glitter to review I am a totally Glitter junkie so I was pretty excited to review... Sadly mother nautre has been against me its been cloudy/raining on and off FINALLY i had a very small window of sun and i swatched up a storm =) this is a new way of swatching i am trying out (so let me know what you think) it shades swatched over bareskin with Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy on top
The shades i recieved are Starburst, Frell! and Bonded to the stars Starburst is the glitter mix while Frell! and Bonded to the stars are pigments. The glitter is well mixed with a good ratio of colours it didnt feel gritty once my glitter base dried I couldnt feel it at all.
As for the pigments they are well blended and are fairly pigmented over bare skin as always I personally feel all loose pigments preform better over a base. The shades are smooth and blend well Bonded to the stars preforms better over a sticky base to really get the glitter to pop and not fall out.
So as always this collection is avaiable online at Geek Chic the whole collection is avaiable individually or you get by the entire collection (8 pigments and 1 glitter) at a discounted price. All the shadows are avaiable in sample sizes.
Samples come in Clam shells and for $1.25USD you get about a 'dash' of product PLENTY for multiple uses. Full Sized jars are $5.99 USD and you get 1g of product in a 5g jar with a sifter. The lip glosses are $4.99 each and the Glitter is 1g for $2.99. If you wanted to purchase the collection as a whole it is $39.99 which qualifys you for free shipping!
These colours were added to a order I had placed previously and was posted well within the stated TAT and were recieved in australia within around 2 weeks. I ordered the rest of the collection so that i can do a full review for you guys so when it gets here (and if mother nature stays kind haha) i will get them swatched and on here asap =)

Final thoughts: Overall these 3 colours preformed well, the glitter didnt clump nor did it feel gritty. the Pigments are smooth and apply well they also blend well with other non GCC shades. the white is semi-shear over bare skin for a more intense look a base colour or stick base is recommended.
