This fabulous new collection from Geek Chic Cosmetics is called the Game is On. It’s inspired by Sherlock. (which, I’m caught up on Elementary but I’m behind on the BBC Sherlock, I need to fix that). I can’t help but love Elementary more, since it has Lucy Liu and she’s awesome. All eyeshadows are cruelty free and vegan.

All eyeshadows swatched on Coastal Scents Step One primer.
Row 1 = My Mind Palace – Battle Dress – I was a Soldier
Row 2 = Old Fashioned Villain – High Functioning Sociopath - Bored
High Functioning Sociopath
Psychopath, you say? Oh no, there’s quite a difference, as Sherlock will gladly tell you! As would anyone else who was constantly being compared to the miscreants who fall under the category of psychopath!
A rich, inky blue shadow with tons of sapphire and gold shimmer. This one is a stunner but best used with a base as it can stain. Perfect for a smoky eye with some pop!
deep sapphire blue with bright blue and gold shimmer
Adverse to its name, this shade is anything but boring. Though wearing it does absolutely give one the excuse to randomly shout the word “BORED” to anyone with the impudence to ask you how you are doing.
An elegant mustard shadow with a satin metallic sheen. Pairs beautifully with autumn tones!
rich mustard yellow with golden sheen
I Was A Soldier
The Army lost its doctor (no not *the* Doctor) and Sherlock gained his best friend. Because what’s a detective without his faithful companion? Or “companion”, as Mrs. Hudson sees it.
A yellow-toned army green based shadow with a strong grass green sheen and subtle golden shimmer. Pairs gorgeously with Bored! and other autumnal shades.
mossy green with green and gold sparkles
Sometimes you need that perfect nude shade to accentuate your personal Battle Dress. And wearing this eyeshadow will surely give you a reason to cause your own scandal. Whether or not that scandal is in Belgravia is entirely up to you.
A tea rose pink with a beige undertone shadow with subtle pink shimmer. Has a satin finish. Perfect for a soft neutral look!
peach-toned beige satin with subtle pink sparkles
My Mind Palace
A place made entirely from his imagination, Sherlock’s Mind Palace truly is the stuff of dreams. Surely at some time or another you have wished for access into this mythical domicile. Well, this eyeshadow will grant you admission, but be warned that Mr. Holmes is known to yell at anyone lowering the IQ in his presence.
A sheer white with a strong turquoise to purple duochrome shift. Chock full of blue, violet, and green sparkles. Perfect for highlighting your browbone, inner v, or even the apples of your cheeks!
white with blue green iridescence and blue, violet and green sparkles. LOVE!!! This is super beautiful and it reminds me of Sugarpill Lumi on steroids.
Old Fashioned Villain
Just like Moriarty himself, this eyeshadow is Mr. Sex! Please note that this shade comes with neither an apple or a perfectly tailored Westwood suit. However, it does come with an extra large dose of sass.
A devious purple satin shadow with a feisty copper sheen and copper sparkle. Perfect for a smoky eye with some sass!
deep smoky purple with sparks of copper, blue, and violet.
My favorites are My Mind Palace and Old Fashioned Villain. High Functioning Sociopath is beautiful. Battle Dress is a nice eye brightener shade. I really like the yellow tones of I Was a Soldier. Bored is such an unusual yellow.
High Functioning Sociopath will leave a bit of a stain if you don’t use a base. However, with eyeshadow primer I had no issues. The colors have a lovely, silky texture.
What do you think of the new The Game Is On Collection from Geek Chic Cosmetics? Do you watch Sherlock or Elementary?

Which is your fav?
So much pretty!! Love this collection! I don’t watch either, but maybe I should!
I think it’s enjoyable
These are so fun! I’d probably pair up Bored with Old Fashioned Villain as I’ve been favouring purple and gold lately. I watch both Elementary and Sherlock. I probably like Sherlock more, but Miller and Liu do make a great team and Elementary is still really high on my list.
That would look great together!
Very pretty colors. I have not tried this brand before.
They make some lovely eyeshadows
These are gorgeous!!
I’m glad you like them!
Very nice and sparkly shadows! I watch both, but Elementary doesn’t hold a candle to Sherlock!! I find that Elementary doesn’t hold my attention most weeks . . .
It’s all because I watch it for Lucy Liu
I like Lucy Liu. I’ve seen Johnny Lee Miller in other things and he is a brilliant actor.
These are super pretty & unusual! I’m usually afraid of loose pigment shadows but overtime I’m starting to become highly interested. I also like that most of the indie companies you show us allow you to buy sample sizes! Thanks again.
I’ve got a great post on how to use loose eyeshadows
Those are sooo pretty.
Agreed! It’s a nice, balanced collection
I wish the purple went on a little more opaque!
It would be more opaque if you used it with Darling Girl Glitter glue. It’s definitely a soft smoky purple. Also, it would be fab on top of a black base for a smoky eye
Such beautiful shades! Great swatches.
Gorgeous! I’m so glad I ordered this set
My Mind Palace and Old Fashioned Villian are my top 2! Gorgeous!
The three shades on the bottom are my faves. Love blues and purples.
Love the humor behind the post. And of course I’m going for the Sociopath color.
Love Battle Dress!!!
Those are so pretty!
I really love Battle Dress & I Was A Solider! Such gorgeous shades!
LOVE the sparkles in Old Fashion Villain!
Gosh! These are all beautiful!!!
I think they are all really pretty!
These are so stunning! I love Elementary and Sherlock such great shows!
Interesting colors, and I love how well you captured the shimmer.
The Chic is the one I’d love to own. It would work with so much.
For a while I thought these were from Makeup Geek. They all look lovely to me!
The purple with holo sparkles looks divine! I also like the white one with the duo chrome look
The yellow is definitely “interesting” – need to see that one on my skin and try out some ideas. I really like the other colours and I’m so disappointed that I missed the collector tin – they’re apparently doing some more so I’m holding out till them to buy these.
I’m a fan of the Sherlock Holmes books. I started watching Elementary but it doesn’t really hold my attention, but I think Sherlock is fantastic – perfectly modern whilst still respecting the text (if you know the books well you can place most of the events in the show) Very well adapted and acted.
High Functioning Sociopath is beautiful!
They have the best colors. I’ve got to try them sometime.
They are very pretty
