Milky White Base – white eyeshadow primer.

Atomic Clock: is medium reddish orange with a strong purple shift.
My Take: pretty peachy orange with pink-violet shimmer

Sexy Time: a black based blue, full of shimmer and holographic glitter.
My take: black with loads of blue shimmer. I don’t see any holographic glitter.

Digital: black with a hint of blue shimmer and black glitter.
My Take: a soft black. I don’t see any blue shimmer or glitter.

Pocket Watch: a rich gold with gold shimmer and gold glitter
My take: It’s a beige-peach gold with gold shimmer

Midsummer Night: a deep burgandy/purple with loads of red glitter and a light dusting of holographic glitter.
My take: a deep burgundy. I don’t see any holographic glitter or red glitter.

Happy Hour: Because it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, this medium yellow is bursting with blue shimmer, and when used over a black base, it transforms into a beautiful teal.
My Take: it’s a yellow with a golden sheen but I don’t see any blue.

Stop…Zombie Time!: is a yellowish green with blue and aqua shimmer.
My Take: lime green with gold and aqua shimmer

Frozen in Time: An icy blue with lots of blue shimmer and sparkle
My Take: this one is spot on

Delorean: A light shimmery blue.
My Take: a slate blue-grey. Very pretty.

Clepsydra: Greek for “Water Clock”, this shade is a dark greenish blue with a whole bunch of purple shimmer and sparkle.
My Take: dark, rich teal with pink-purple shimmer. Very pretty.

Big Ben: A bold blue with a beautiful red shift and sparkle!
My Take: deep, rich blue with pink-purple shimmer

Salvador Dali: a deep purple with purple and red shimmer and purple glitter.
My Take: red-based purple with silver shimmer

Metronome: a pure shimmery white with loads of holographic glitter.
My Take: pretty shimmery white. I don’t see any holographic glitter.

First Birthday: is a metallic white loaded with shimmer.
My Take: metallic silvery white. Lovely.

I have not tested the primer for longevity so I can’t speak to that. I do like the white primer because it does remind me of Nyx Jumbo pencil in Milk.

I really like the eyeshadows! Some of the colors are complex. The price point is great. The shadows have good pigmentation, they’re vegan, and they blend easily.

Have you tried Tick: Tock Cosmetics? What are your favorite colors?

      Well, they don’t look too opaque to me, what a shame because some of the colours are really tempting, think of Sexy Time or Delorian!

      • Phyrra

        Delorian would be awesome on you.
        My favorites are Clepsedrya and Big Ben.

      My God, an eyeshadow named ‘Delorian’?! NEED.

      Delorian, Salvador Dali and MIdsummer Night are all so nice! I haven’t heard of Tick:Tock Cosmetics yet.

      I’ve never even heard of this brand, fab selection of colours!

      Yea! That price point is really, really good! I don’t have a favorite here but I’m leaning towards Salvador Dali and Sexy Time.

      As always, thank you, Phyrra, for sharing with us new companies. It’s like opening a huge door to all the possibilities to entrepreneurial businesses and finding note-worthy indie companies.

      I’m wearing Atomic Clock and Happy Hour today. I really like Tick: Tock and the Infinity primer is my favorite to date. I find the shadows to be very blendable and easy to use!

      How many grams are the full sized products? Have you found that you can build them up to look more opaque looking? They’re a great price, definitely. Just wondering if you get less product for that price, though.
