Espionage Cosmetics is a cruelty free, US based (Washington state) cosmetic company that specializes in geek and nerd themed makeup and nail wraps.Ā Espionage Cosmetics are the queens of the geeky nail wraps. But they are so much more than that. They are the beautiful geeky brain child of my gorgeous friend, glitter jedi goddess, and former US Marine Jaimie Cordero! Even our beloved Carrie Fisher, Princess Leia herself, was a fan of their glitter products.

I’ve been blessed with being one of their NMAs (Nerd Manicure Ambassador) for many years now, and I am also extremely fortunate to know these wonderful ladies for just as long. When I was a makeup blogger (formerly known as Makeup By Siryn back in the day šŸ˜‰ ) I was one of the first blogs they reached out to to help spread the word about their company and products.

So I want to take a moment to shine the spot light on them, and their awesome products! It’s been a long time coming for sure!

Nail Wraps

 

Many of these have been discontinued at this point. I had to reach into my archives for these photos as I’ve been super bad with my nails lately and haven’t worn them in quite a long time because of it (I miss my long nails, yes these are my natural nails lol. They’ll be back soon!). But below are many nail wraps that they currently offer, including licensed designs like The Last Unicorn and Sonic the Hedgehog! They are REALLY simple to apply. Make sure you have clean nails, find the nail wrap that is the correct size for whatever finger you want to put it on, and start from base to tip and press/smooth on! To make them last longer, I use a clear top coat (Don’t use Seche Vite as it tends to shrink as it dries and will pull up the nail wraps on the edges) or even take them to a manicurist and have them set it with a clear gel coat!

Here are their two eyeshadow palettes, RPG and Colovaria. The pigmentation on Colovaria is amazing! They’re more in line with colors I currently wear so I think this is great for people who like more understated colors. RPG is obviously for those who LOVE bright colors! I didn’t think the pigmentation was as great as Colovaria, but these were swatched w/o a primer so I think RPG would perform better with a primer underneath.

Cartridge Compacts

Can we talk about how awesome it is that they made compacts that look like Gameboy Cartridges? This one is reminiscent of Legend of Zelda (you can pick different designs!) and is shown with two of their Lip Blushes in Bubble Dragon and Peachy Princess.
