Indiana Comic Con

I'm gearing up to head to the Indiana Comic Con this weekend, it runs Friday thru Sunday and I'll be there all three days. I have two epic custom gowns I'll be wearing, so expect some amazing, over the top, dramatic makeup to be blogged next week sometime. I'm bringing my camera along and hope to see some great cos play to blog about as well. I've never been to a 'con of any sort, so I'm very excited to attend and see what's what.

I'm on a roll here!

What's this?! Two posts in about a week?! What is this madness? Today, I'm sharing a look I did for work using Geek Chic Cosmetics.  The shades I used are from the Supernatural inspired collection called Superneutrals. As it sounds, the collection is full of neutral shades that pack a bit of a punch. For this look I used Morningstar, The Trickster, Born Under a Bad Sign, Most Loyal (discontinued) Angel of Thursday, King of Hell, and Rock Salt to hilite. On my cheeks, I used Maybelline Glaze blush stick in Make a Mauve. On my lips is Mac Cosmetics RiRi Woo.

My Current Obsession

I have a pretty extensive makeup collection. 400+ loose pigments, 20 or so palettes, countless lippies, 200+ bottles of polish, you get the idea. But there are is one item I reach for on an almost daily basis. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) makes a WONDERFUL lip product called Lip Tar that now comes in three finishes, Matte, Metallic, and Gloss.

My latest OCC obsession is their spring '14 release, Rollergirl. OCC describes it as a vibrant lavender and I tend to agree. If neon lilac were a color, it would be Rollergirl. I was worried it wouldn't work well on my olive/yellow skin tone, but I absolutely love it.

I was excited for this shade because I thought it would be more similar to a discontinued shade from a few years ago that I missed out on, Belladonna. This shade is much lighter and brighter than Belladonna and I happen to like it a lot more.

Here's a picture of Belladonna for comparison sake, a friend sent me a sample.

I have a special spot in my heart for purple lippies and Rollergirl has taken the current top spot, over Mac Heroine and others.What is your favorite purple lippie?
