Indie Spotlight: Insomnia Cosmetics!

Long time no post!
I figured I'd bring my blog back from the dead with a quick indie spotlight post on a company I've recently discovered, and come to love myself: Insomnia Cosmetics!


Insomnia Cosmetics is an indie company that makes unique, cruelty free lipsticks. (And more recently, gel eyeliner!) I was drawn to the brand by their grey lipstick, Cult Insomnia, and I haven't looked back yet! I also most recently purchased their Halloween collection, Casket Ready. This collection includes 5, limited edition, halloween lipstick, and the colors are literally to DIE for. 



Here is my review video on the lipsticks I currently own, you can watch me do live lip swatches for every color!:


Left to Right: Antidote, Superstition, Menace, Bone Dust, 3am, Cult Insomnia, and Witch Hunt
Overall, I am in love with the creamy formula of these. I realize in the video I said 'matte' finish, but after thinking about it, none of these are actually matte. They just don't contain any shimmer, I'd call them more of a cream finish lipstick! Antidote and Superstition are slightly dry, and less opaque than the rest of them, but with the exception of those two, they are all opaque, beautiful, and easy to wear! 


I am absolutely LOVING Insomnia Cosmetics. If you have tried anything from this brand before, what colors are your tried and true favorites?! If not, what colors speak the loudest to you? 

[All lipsticks purchased by me with my own money with the exception of Cult Insomnia and Witch Hunt, sent to me by Insomnia Cosmetics. All opinions are my own, as always]

Indie Spotlight: Glamour Doll Eyes!

Hey guys! Coming at ya today with another Indie Spotlight post! This time, I'll be reviewing the popular indie brand, Glamour Doll Eyes!


Glamour Doll Eyes is a pretty popular indie makeup brand, they sell eyeshadows, lip glosses, blushes, and a bunch of stuff in between! You might recognize this brand if you've been following my Sample Saturdays series, as I've featured them quite a few times! The owner, Vee, has recently contacted me and asked if I would like to do a review on some shades from GDE. I was overjoyed and of course said yes! Prior to that, I have purchased, and used GDE myself, so I already knew I loved the products!

I choose six eyeshadows, and below I've swatched them over Urban Decay Primer Potion, NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk, and finally foiled with just plain ol' water.







Here's a look I wore the other day using FrankenGlamous, Tattooed, and Heedless Heart (As well as Sugarpill eyeshadow in 2am, and Wet N Wild eyeshadow in Brulee)


The shadows are smooth, blendable, and gorgeously pigmented! I already knew I liked Glamour Doll Eyes, but the shades I chose this time around were just incredible! At $6 for a full sized jar, you really can't complain! GDE also offers TWO different sizes of samples you can purchase, which is amazing, because you all know, I LOVE me some samples! ;D Glamour Doll Eyes is also Cruelty Free!

Check out Glamour Doll Eyes here!:

I'd love to know if you're already a fan of GDE, or if you've been wanting to check them out! If you're already a fan, what are some of your favorite shades?!

[This product was send to me by Glamour Doll Eyes for review. All opinions are my own.]

My Pretty Zombie: Top 10 Picks!!

Hey guys!!

I know this is a blog post you've ALL been waiting for...
I'm sure most of you know by now, that I've recently taken on the massive task of creating the eye swatches for the My Pretty Zombie website. (Most of you are aware by now that I have also done eye swatches for Concrete Minerals as well, and if you weren't, then yep, those ARE my eyeballs all over CM's website!) Well guess what? I'm FINALLY done!! I've finally completed this huge task I took on almost three months ago! Along with a massive sense of accomplishment, (and total eyeball world domination) I've gotten a LOT of questions about the brand and what my favorites are! 
My Pretty Zombie is a brand I was familiar with only very briefly before getting in touch with Andrea, the owner of MPZ. Andrea is totally sweet, and we have very, VERY similar personalities, so our inner goth meshed well with one another xD. She had asked me if I was interested in working with her, and of course, I agreed. I had only tried one, limited edition eyeshadow from MPZ and was craving more! Little did I realize, that this little indie company had some shades that packed some SERIOUS punch! I can tell you right now, that almost every shadows I tried was hardly what it appeared to be. You may THINK you're putting on just a plain, slightly shimmery, medium brown eyeshadow, and suddenly tones of pink, purple, and flashes of red come to life on your eyelid. Honestly MPZ has some of the most unique shades I have ever tried. 

Let's just get onto the damn picks because I know that's why you're here! Listing them in no particular order, except alphabetical, because that's how my computer arranges things. 


First up is 13 Gypsies. MPZ describes this shade as:  a warm heavy copper with copper glitter.
I do find it to be a slightly more golden-based than red-based copper, however, it is gorgeous nonetheless! I knew I was going to like this shade before I even took the shrink wrap off! 


Next shade is Anthrax. You can find this color within The Husbandry Affliction collection. MPZ describes this shade as: Purple to Green with a gold to red shift.
The green shift is the most obvious in this color, but you can see the reddish undertones lurking within, the gold shift is very slight, but green tends to dominate it a bit more. Purples and greens are two of my favorite colors, so putting them together like this is an instant win in my book!


Third on the list is Black Eye. MPZ describes this color as: a dark red with a slight purple tinge that looks like you took a punch.
I really don't think it can get more accurate than that!! I found with this shade, that depending on where your put it and how you blended it, it can be super complex. Notice the shadow in the crease, that is NOT another color I'm wearing along with Black Eye! 


Brisket. This color can be found within the Butcher Shop Collection on the website. MPZ describes this shade as: copper with a red to gold shift.
ARE. YOU. SEEING. THIS?! Seriously. One eyeshadow, is capable of this result. If you look at this shade and go 'meh', just don't even talk to me ever. This eyeshadow is incredible and it literally makes me stutter. 


Next up on my list is Dissolution. You can find this color within the Blue Period Collection on the website. MPZ describes this as: Purple/blue base.
Let's be honest, that description does nothing for this beautiful color! There is some seriously amazing pink/purple/reddish glitter and shimmer running through this color. Paired with the purple and blue base, it is just one of the most beautiful things I've ever laid my eyes on. (Or have laid on my eyes?) 


Another star from the Blue Period Collection is Infirmary. MPZ describes this as: Mossy green/blue base.
Again, the description doesn't do this guy justice! There are bolts of light green and goldish (not like, super yellow gold) glitter and shimmer running through this shade! Honestly if you're going to pick one collection, and you like blue, super shimmery eyeshadow, go for The Blue Period. You will NOT be disappointed!


Next is mNg no. 2. MPZ describes this shade as: Peachy pink with a golden green shift.
I'm not really usually a huge fan of pinks, BUT, the greenish/blue/teal duochrome running through this shadow is incredible! (Can you tell I'm a sucker for duochromes yet?)


Pasty Ass. MPZ describes this shade as:  a very light matte beige.
I actually love this color. And you're probably thinking to yourself "seriously? wtf?" BUT I DO! I love that it has some amount of grey in it (on me, keep in mind, my skin is basically translucent) and I think it's a pretty taupe color. It would be perfect as a transitioning shade for cool-toned looks!


Scurvy. MPZ describes this shade as: Less annoying than the real thing! This fabulous color is orange orange shimmer!
On me, this is a gorgeous, rusty orange shade. (I'm trying to remember the last time I heard 'gorgeous' and 'rusty' in the same sentence...)


Last, but never least, is Static. MPZ describes this color as: beetle green with a gold sheen.
Couldn't go without including a green of course! This color is absolutely beautiful and the golden shimmer is to die for!

Although I thought it was impossible to narrow it down to 10, I guess this will have to do. There are SOO many other gore-geous shades to choose from as well, depending on what you're looking for! I had a ridiculously fun time working with MPZ and Andrea, and I can't wait to use these shadows in my daily looks! I would definitely recommend you check MPZ out. Tell them Biohazardous Beauty sent you! ;D

Indie Spotlight: Geek Chic Cosmetics

So, I know it's Saturday, and you're probably all like 'Where's the Sample Saturday post?!' Well, shit, I'm thinking the same thing. Unfortunately I've fallen victim YET AGAIN to an allergic reaction to a product, this time, a latex free (I know, like, seriously?) eyelash glue, and am not able to wear contacts, eye makeup, or film for a few days while they heal. BOO! 

ANYWAYS! I wanted to still do a focus on an indie brand, and this is one you've seen a few times if you've been watching and reading my Sample Saturday episodes! This post is gonna be all about Geek Chic Cosmetics!



Geek Chic is an indie cosmetics line, that focuses on creating cosmetics around all sorts of geekery. If you are into certain fandoms, you will INSTANTLY recognize names and collections from some of your favorite video games, anime, tv series, and movies! Their products are 100% vegan AND cruelty free.
I had ordered 9 sample eyeshadows, just to try. They also sell lip products, a few face products, nail polish (seems like they're getting ready to relaunch those soon), and solid perfume. They looked incredible on the website, and damn, do they look just as incredible in person! Sometimes there are just eyeshadows that BEG to have their macro, close-up shots taken! I just chosen a few samples of shades that REALLY stood out to me, (or with names that I just couldn't possible pass up!)

Collections: The Game is On, This Isn't a Democracy, and Go Boldly
High-Functioning Sociopath
Clementine Will Remember
Blood Wine
Swatched dry with no base or primer!
Collection: Fellowship
One Ring
Samwise The Brave
Swatched dry with no primer or base!
Collection: Timey Wimey
We Are Coming
Bad Wolf
Swatched dry with no primer or base!
Collection: Witchcraft and Wizardry
Golden Trio
Mischief Managed
Swatched dry with no primer or base!
Some of these shades are just brilliant, unlike any that I currently have in my collection! Samples can be ordered of most colors for $1.25. While that's a pretty cheap price, I will say that some of my samples seemed to be a little lighter than others. Full sizes are only $5.99, which is a great price, but you only get 1 gram of product inside. I still personally chose to purchase samples, because I rarely go through a full sized eyeshadow, and if I end up using up a sample, THEN I'll purchase a full size for sure! 

I have since order more samples (and admittedly, a couple full size) shadows from Geek Chic! I have been loving them, especially the ones with the stunning microglitters in them, I can't get enough! I hope to try MANY more colors from this brand, and hell, I'd even be down to try their lip products, blushes, and solid perfumes too! 

I'd definitely recommend checking out Geek Chic if you're into any nerdy fandom, OR if you just like really, really pretty colors! 

Which the fandoms immortalized in makeup from Geek Chic calls the most to you? Also, what other brands have you seen me use in Sample Saturday (or any!) tutorials that you'd like to see an Indie Spotlight post on?
