Tick : Tock Cosmetics. Review, Swatches, EOTD and a Giveaway!!

        I am going to be ordering, reviewing and showcasing each company or blog who donated and helped with the gift bags this year!


   Tick : Tock Cosmetics is the first company up in the spotlight!  Tick : Tock Cosmetics is run by two friends, Elizabeth and Tiffany, who both hail from Indiana. Tick : Tock opened it's virtual doors mid 2011 and it's customer and fan base is steadily growing. This past Summer they were even featured in a local magazine!

Tick : Tock sent a nice big package filled with pigments and more for the gift bags and Elizabeth was kind enough to throw in some goodies for me and for you!! Thank you SO much for your generosity!!

             I was sent 2 Infinitity Bases, 4 pigments and 5 samples! Tick : Tock even made a custom color for me!! The pink is called  Glitterholic!!!

            I am all out of pots which is driving me nuts. I have not been able to order any because of my "No Buy". I have tons of samples that need to be potted!!  Soon!!!!!

Bottom labeling on the pots.
All the needed info!

Glitterholic , Frozen in Time,
Time Warp Again and  Stop...Zombie Time

           These bases were formulated to take the place of the beloved NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk that most loose mineral makeup lovers use!  I already put my finger in the white base so that is why it is smudged in
the picture.  I really liked these. I used the white base on my eyes instead of my normal NYX Jumbo pencil and it worked just as well if not better. No creasing at all. Infinity base is a bit thicker in texture so I just made sure to rub it between my fingers to warm it up a bit before applying to my eyelids. This thins it out a bit and makes it easier to apply. Infinity eyeshadow base comes in black and white and is $4 for a 5 gram pot.


Here is some information from the Tick : Tock shop.
Our take on the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil!
First of all, a big difference between the two is that our product is VEGAN and the NYX product is not. That was a huge factor in creating our eye shadow base, we had to make sure we created an identical product without the ingredients that made it a non-vegan product.
Another difference in these products is packaging. We decided we wanted to put our eye shadow base in a 5g pot, the same size as our full-size eye shadows. Our reason is that it takes up the same amount of space as an eye shadow, so storage will be super easy. Also, if you leave it in your car on a hot summer day, it won't be ruined like a NYX pencil would be.
Infinity Eye Shadow Base
Ingredients: Castor Oil, Titanium Dioxide, Carnauba Wax, Dimethicone, Microcrystalline wax, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E
Apply to eyelids using either a concealer brush or fingertips! They apply your favorite Tick:Tock Originals Eye Shadow to get the strongest pigmentation, durability, and results out of your shadows!


 Swatch time!!!  
            I did my swatches different just so I could show the different bases. All of the colors swatched nicely over the bases. Bare skin was pretty transparent but most loose minerals do not perform well without a base
so it was expected.

Swatches in the sunlight.
          I love Glitterholic, Frozen in Time and Clepsydra! Pigments come in sample size (baggie) for .70, you can buy a sample set with 32 colors and an Infinity base for $20. Full size pigments come in 5 gram jars and cost $4.95. Browsing the shop I see they have quite a few sets, collections and packages you
can also choose from.

        I did a look using Glitterholic, Frozen in Time, Clepsydra and Time Warp Again. I personally have a hard time with grays and blacks looking muddy on me but I think this look came out nicely without going that way.

       My eyeliner had a mind of its own this day and the wing is extra huge. These pigments applied nicely. They went on pretty opaque and blended well without much fallout.

                     Overall I really like Tick : Tock Cosmetics. This company is run by two hardworking, sweet and generous young ladies, the product is a nice quality, the packaging is professional and the pricing is good. Tick : Tock currently offers over 33 different color pigments, Infinity bases and are always adding new things to the shop. Elizabeth is a photographer so the shop has very crisp images that show the pigments well which is very refreshing. Have you tried Tick : Tock Cosmetics? If so what did you think? If not, keep reading and enter the giveaway!!
