In honor is tonight's return of Dr. Who, I thought I would do a review of a few shadows from the Geek Chic Cosmetics Timey Wimey Collection. For non Whovians, allow me to explain how this time thing works.
"People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect... but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly... timey-wimey... stuff"
It also provides the basis for some totally kick ass eye shadows! Now if I could convince my husband to let me paint the door leading from our kitchen to the garage to look like the TARDIS. Then I could open it and tell everyone "It's bigger on the inside" Come on..how awesome would that be!?
S*xy In Suspenders
S*xy in Suspenders is a light silvery pink with a blue sheen and blue sparkles
Bigger on the Inside
Bigger on the Inside is a dark colonial blue with a gold overlay and gold sparkles. It's hard to describe the effect, it's not green, it's more of a swirling of gold and blue. Kinda like a time vortex.
Bad Wolf is a medium violet with golden shimmer and gold sparkle
We Are Coming
We Are Coming is a very complex dark brown with a golden, copper shimmer and red and blue sparkles
More winners from the gang over at Geek Chic Cosmetics. We Are Coming, which I reviewed once before, is in my top five shadows of all time. The complexity and beauty of this color can not be overstated. Bad Wolf is a very nice midtone purple that doesn't pull blue or red. I love it as a crease color or brushed over a cream eyeliner. Sexy in Suspenders is a great highlight color for cooler skintones and also works well to brighten up the inner corner of your eye. You could also wear this on your cheeks and give yourself an ethereal glow. The only sketchy color was Bigger on the Inside. When it works it is stunning, but the golden shimmer has a tendency to separate from the blue base. 1/2 the time I get the color pictured above, the other 1/2 I get the blue base with a weird patchy golden halo. I have a few shadows that give me the same effect (usually a gold over a green base) and I will say Bigger on the Inside gives me less trouble then all the others. Just take care when applying.

My question to you... who is your favorite Dr and Companion? You can mix and match!
For me, I never thought I'd say it, because 10 (David Tennant) was iconic and brilliant, but I think 11(Matt Smith) is my favorite. There is a weariness to him that compels me, no small feat since he is also the youngest actor to play the Dr; and boy did he have some big shoes to fill. He also pulls off the Dr's quirks and danger without making him as unstable as 10 was.
Favorite companion? No contest, Donna Noble! All the fun and emotion with zero romantic drama. Katherine Tate's chemistry with David Tennant was electric. That pairing ended much to soon in my opinion.
