Today I am bringing you swatches of the newest Geek Chic Cosmetics eye shadow collection: the Fellowship collection! I love Lord of the Rings, so as soon as Geek Chic started teasing pictures of these shadows on their Facebook, I knew I needed the whole collection! Gorgeous shadows that are LOTR inspired, what's not to love? Let's get on to the swatches!
All swatches are done over Tick:Tock Cosmetics Infinity Eye Shadow Base in Milky Way. I took my swatch picture with flash in order to provide the best true-to-life photo since I don't really have the best natural lighting. Shade descriptions provided from the Geek Chic Cosmetics website.
From left to right:
Stormcrow: sandy brown with a pearly sheen
Into the West: golden green with white gold glitter
Heir of Isildur: deep, dark emerald green
One Ring: true gold, full of golden sparkle and shimmer
Lady of the Golden Wood: complex pearly white with golden highlights and flares of gold and violet
Samwise the Brave: burnt blackened copper
Far Over the Misty Mountains Cold: bold, blackened purple, packed full of blue highlight and sparkles
I Am No Man: soft white gold with a pearl sheen
My favorite shades of the bunch are Far Over the Misty Mountains Cold (seriously so freaking stunning), Heir of Isildur, and One Ring. What shades stand out to you?
