Conventions: Paul St. Peter Panel from Omni Fandom Expo 2018!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! I’m back with another post and it’s a new Omni Fandom Expo video!

Paul St. Peter Voice Acting for Business & Pleasure Panel!

If you’ve been here since 2016, Paul St. Peter has been a staple guest at Omni Fandom Expo since then and has been a great guest ever since. You may have heard him in kingdom Hearts 2 as Xemnes, Naruto as the Nine Tailed Fox voice, and Wyrmon in Digimon Season 2 also Stingmon and the many evolutions after that. Paul always puts on his voice acting panels and they are very informative since Gondras and I do attend them every time he puts them on. If you’re wanting to be a voice actor and he’s a guest at your convention, I highly recommend his panels because he not only tells you what’s possible but also does demos in his Voice Maker panels. We got video from his Voice Acting for Business & Pleasure which tells you the difference in doing it for fun and doing it in the business world. All thanks to his panels, now I add the question, “What is your advice to people wanting to go into voice acting?” for my interviews because a lot of voice actors go into this business in different ways and it’s good to get different advice from different actors. I did ask J. Michael Tatum and Brandon McInnis this question too which you will hear that in our interview soon but in the meantime you get to see this video, which you should watch to the end, and our interview with Derek Steven Prince earlier in our Omni posts.

That’s it for this post! Stay tuned for the rest of our coverage from Omni, we do have more panel videos coming up. Of course our interview with Mr. Tatum and Mr. McInnis soon. So stay tuned and follow us on Twitter for our updates!


Beauty: Final Coastal Scents Revealed Look: Using All Of the Pallets!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! Now time for another look!

Coastal Scents Revealed Series: Using All Five Pallets!

So, today marks the final video in my Revealed pallet series! I used shades from all five pallets which made an interesting look to say the least. I did also use the Ten Blush Pallet Number 1 which did add onto the use of my Coastal Scents items. I’m not sponsored by them but I am an affiliate which you can find that link on the Affiliates page here and in the Description if you watch the video on YouTube!

Well, that is it for this post! Stay tuned for our next Omni Fandom Expo video and on top of that the next book review from our fave author, Mimi Jean Pamfiloff! Until next time!

Beauty: Coastal Scents Revealed Palllet Look and Project Pan Update!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! Another Coastal Scents look and an update on Project Pan!

Coastal Scents Revealed Pallet Look!

First is my newest look in the Coastal Scents Revealed Series! I think I did do the look on Revealed 2 last time since I did find my Revealed 2 still on my makeup drawer setup. I hope it was and if it wasn’t, I will be doing a look next incorporating shades from all five so stay tuned for that! Also, the good news is that I found my Soft Spoken Blush from NYX since I was looking for it for the longest time! It was with my printer paper for some reason, I don’t know how it got there but it was there. I did mean to use Pin Up by Hard Candy but that blush is now lost. At least I got to use Soft Spoken again since I loved it a lot and glad that it is back for good. Funny thing was I almost bought another since NYX was doing a special where a lot of their holiday items were put on sale with other items and I didn’t get another and glad to find it but I did get the Green Concealer from the Concealer Jar line which I loved and this is my second time buying it. I can see why it is a great pick for green correcting concealers and I do have two stubborn spots at the moment and had to switch my skin care. I also got another Matte Lipstick in Nude because mine was expired and I started loving the Matte Lipsticks again and I like them more than the Butter ones. And for the items from the sale I got the Intense Butter Gloss Set and the Soft Matte Lip Cream Set in the remaining ones left. I was noticing that a lot of items were sold out and glad to get these! What I put in as a note in the video description is that there was one Lip Cream called Swiss Manifest and I know they are usually after cities and thought it was a city and saw it wasn’t. I am not sure if it is supposed to be Stockholm or another Swiss city. It is a brown nude. Anyways, it has been forever that I got any of the Butter Glosses, when the Intense line came out and went to Ulta they were already sold out in most of the colors so best to wait a while for them. While the Soft Matte Lip Creams, I always loved Milan, heck my mom loved it on me and I got her one once in that shade, and I missed them so much. Glad to get it then. So, yes, I know I rambled but wanted to add that! Next will be the all of the pallet line look!

Project Pan Update!

I haven’t done an update at all lately but it’s time to do one! The good news is that I finished all three of my Revlon Primer + Shadow pallets in Bohemian, Metropolitan, and Advant Gard and man it was easy for me to finish them up! I know Ulta’s website only carried four or five at the moment but Revlon hasn’t been on YouTube or anywhere as much since some of their newer stuff I’ve been hearing hasn’t been as great. I do enjoy the Super Lusterous Lipsticks I have in Fuschia Shock and Iced Mocha, I should try to finish those up since they are old, I think you can still get them since Gwen Stefani promoted them a while back. Wait! They are still around! I may have to get more since it’s been forever and some colors caught my cat ears! I also have gotten one of their gel lippies and one of their liquid matte lips. Also their So Lengthy Mascara which I do enjoy! And I think one of their highlights too. Anyways, glad to pan those three since I did love them but you have to pack them on a lot to get any color pay off which I read people had a hard time with. I don’t get why with the lip products Revlon does they do amazing jobs but their shadows are either a hit or a major miss! Sorry Revlon, oh right, their nail polishes are also amazing!

I did finish some perfumes in the past and one included my bottle of Burberry Britt! I had a back up bottle of it and glad it’s done and now into my newest bottle! I love this perfume and everyone else does too because it is a vanilla spice scent and people in Daytona knew it was me when I wore it! Another perfume was Versacci Femme, not sure if I did mention this one but I did finally finish it and it took forever to do and knew I was finishing it up anyways! I think I will be adding my Lush perfumes to this if I can get them done because they are old and the ones I have are from their holiday sale they have done for years and stopped doing which makes me sad, I have Snow Showers, Ponche, and Cream Candy and also Black Pearl somewhere. I wish they kept doing the perfume sale because I wanted to get the Twilight perfume so badly! Oh well! Those are in my project pan and of course Nicole by Nicole Richey! This perfume was a major want years ago around 2012 and loved it but the bottle! The bottle is hard to spray anything with! I don’t get who designed the bottle it’s too hard to spray despite how pretty it looks. I need to put it in an atomizer to finish it up. I do love the smell though!

Speaking of add ons, I am adding to the project all of my Wet N Wild pallets I have purchased from 2012 until now because Wet N Wild has done a revamp on their eye shadow pallets by discontinuing the trios which I’m sad due to how much I love Steel My Thunder which is the silver trio, Petal Pusher which is my fave purple eight pan, and Blue Had Me At Hello! This will include those two, Shimmer the Night Away, Flirting At the Party, Walking the Red Carpet, Walking On Eggshells in the old packaging, and all of the five pans I have, and the Spring collection trios, and Retro and Cloud 9 from the trios. So, goodbye when they are done! It would be fair to get the newer ones since during Galentine’s Day this year we did a gift thing and I got the gift Vivi bought and it was one of the new ten pan pallets in the peachy one. I do like it so far and Walking On Eggshells is now a quad which that is now what they did with the trios, they are quads which is pretty cool! So must finish those old ones!

I did finish Electric Slide from Colour Pop which happened during my And That’s Jacob look and that took a long time but hey I got to hit pan! I still have ways to go on other products like my Disney Villains pallets from E. L. F., didn’t touch One Night in Morrocco lately. I decided not to add my only Maybelline quad since there are no dents in it. And I added my Avon green trio to my professional makeup items since that is very matte and I do have two things it goes with for any professional looks. Oh right! During this time, I also finished up my Naked 2 Basics because I bought a newer one two years ago and that thing had so much shadow that it was hard to finish even if one is completely dust. Don’t worry, I am using the newer one.

Well, that’s it for this post! I will update on the Project Pan when I get around to the next update of stuff! So, next time will be having a super special treat for you all so stay tuned!

Interviews: Derek Steven Prince at Omni Fandom Expo 2018!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! I’m back with more Omni coverage!

Interview with Derek Steven Prince

It’s up on YouTube and that is our interview with Mr. Derek Steven Prince! You may have heard him in Digimon as DemiVeemon, Veemon, ExVeemon, Paildramon, and even Imperialmon! I bet you’re wondering, “Wait! What about Flamedramon and Raidramon?” Well, they’re done by Steve Blum. Anyways, other series he was in included love Hina, Naruto, Bleach, and his first role in Power Rangers Turbo as Divatox’s nephew! You will get to hear that story in this interview and even did the voice during Jeopardy that Friday, which we had a hard time figuring out the character’s name. He did show up in other Power Rangers seasons as villains and monsters.

What is next? Well, I’m having a bit of YouTube app trouble and hoping to get my Coastal Scents Revealed 1 look up on there soon. We also will be having a special treat coming up this week and excited to bring it to you all! So, stay tuned! We are trying to get the other videos up from Omni but need to make some edits so hoping we can get them up as soon as we can! Enjoy!

Beauty: Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Look!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! Time for another look in my Coastal Scents Look Series!

Revealed 2!

Another Revealed pallet since so far I have done Smoky, Matte, and 3 and now it’s time for 2! I got this pallet through BoxyCharm when I used to be subscribed and it’s apparently a bestselling pallet on Coastal Scents! This is supposed to be like the Naked 2 pallet by Urban Decay and I can see why since it does have the slightly smoky bits to it. I do love this pallet and glad to pull it out again. I did use my Spoon highlight from Colour Pop and lovin’ it!

Since this video went up, I did fill out the press form for Anime Festival Orlando 2018 and hoping to get it this year because after 2015 it is time to re-build that bridge and reach out since I did say after Omni that I have confidence again in getting more press opportunities. I’m still trying to reach out to Ranger Stop since we did interview Power Ranger voice actor alum Derek Steven Prince and two of the Dino Thunder Rangers in the past, I would like to interview more Power Ranger guests since we are fans of the series itself. 2018 is all about expanding so keeping our fingers crossed, sent our Press Kit even to show that we have been at this for a long while. So, wish us luck everyone!

That is it for this post! I hope you all who celebrate it a Happy Easter and enjoy all the food and desserts and even making makeup looks based on the holiday colors, which I will be and it will be on Instagram, and stay tuned for any book reviews, hoping more Omni coverage, and next weekend will be the last two Revealed Looks with Revealed 1 and colors from all five!

Beauty: Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Look!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe and I’m back with another Coastal Scents look!

Revealed 3!

Now to continue my Revealed Look series and it’s with the Revealed 3 pallet! I am so sorry for not getting this up on Sunday because my camera decided to record a minute videos somehow. I hate it when this happens because it did happen before and it caused me to use my Android tablet’s camera but that only records ten to fifteen minutes at a time which kind of sucks. That is why I rather use the IPhone camera since it records more than that and only does it on a good day. I hope Samsung fixes that recording issue since there are times where people love to use the camera to record things. Anyways, another thing is that in my original look I tried using a Bare Minerals bronzer that Gondras’ mom gave me during Omni and well it turned up super dark on my face and my mom noticed. I had to toss it and I was warned it was going to do that. Bare Minerals, if you make a warm bronzer it is not that dark for the shade warm, just saying. I did use my Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer in Light along with the Milani Blush in Berry Amore in this one. I almost used Spoon from Colour Pop but realized I already had a highlight I wanted to use and that was Boozy Brunch from Wet N Wild so I will be using Spoon with my Revealed 2 look tomorrow. So stay tuned for that one!

That’s it for this look and stay tuned for Revealed 2! And news about the Omni coverage, I am still waiting for the videos to be uploaded since Gondras still has them. I did text him this morning because it’s almost April. Sorry about that guys I am working on it. So stay tuned and follow us on Twitter!

Beauty: Look with the Coastal Scents Revealed Smoky Pallet!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! Time for another look from the Coastal Scents series!

Revealed Smoky!

So, next in the Revealed pallets is the Revealed Smoky from Coastal Scents! This pallet is a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Smoky which was discontinued a year ago, which was a sad time for all of us Naked lovers. Apparently there weren’t enough sales for Naked Smoky over time so it was discontinued. I still have mine and this one which unlike Naked Smoky it has twenty shades to choose from and the shades do blend very well. Some people found it is not as pigmented as the others which to me it did come out pretty pigmented and did enjoy it. I got mine through BoxyCharm when they had it in the January 2016 box where they did nothing but eyes that month like with Ipsy and this was a great treasure to have. I did use the Milani Romantic Rose blush since I love rosy blushes with a smoky look, the Lilac to Reality highlight that Wet N Wild released last spring, and my Makeup Revolution Bronzer that is meant for light-medium skin types.

Stay tuned for my look with Revealed 3 coming up tomorrow where I get to play with some purple tones! Make sure you follow us on Twitter @ Nerdy Shique for all of the latest updates!

Beauty: Coastal Scents Revealed Matte Look!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique universe! Don’t worry, the press coverage is coming soon, well the rest of it so stay tuned. I wanted to come on here to give you a new video!

Coastal Scents Revealed Pallet Series! Look 1: Revealed Matte!

So, I decided to start a new look series over on the Nerdy Shique Universe Channel and wanted to start posting the videos here too so you guys can see them. I started with Too Faced over there with the Chocolate Bar pallets and then did one look with colors from all three pallets. This time I’m doing it with the Revealed pallets from Coastal Scents in the same idea but starting backwards. I started with the Revealed Matte pallet since I just received it in the mail this past week and combined it with the Ten Blush 2 Pallet since that was also on sale last week.

I felt that Coastal Scents hasn’t gotten much love on YouTube and this series will get it back up since they are a pretty good brand and very affordable. They even have really good discount sales and you can also get them on Amazon like I did with the Brush Vanity Affair 22 Brush set I have been wanting for three years. Anyways, I’m also an affiliate with them and you can find my link on the Affiliate Links page here and it’s just the letter “R” which I find it funny that ended up like that on the page. I would say check it out and I do get 7% commission if you use my link. You can find the products I used from Coastal Scents in the description box on YouTube when clicking, “View on YouTube.”

Well, that is it for this post! Next makeup look is the Revealed Smoky which I received through BoxyCharm a few years back. Also follow us on Twitter @ Nerdy Shique for our press coverage updates! Until next time!

Conventions: Holiday Matsuri 2017 Idol Festival!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! It’s time for the final coverage from Holiday Matsuri 2017!

Saturday, December 16, 2016 Idol Festival:

This year introduced a new event to Holiday Matsuri and it is known as the Idol Festival. These are pretty popular in Japan even with how much Vokyloid has been a huge part of that popularity. In Japan, idols go onstage and perform either solo or in a group and here is kind of the same thing where women act as the idols and dance or play instruments along with the music.

We only were there for a few of the acts from the start of it since we were heading to J. Michael Tatum’s panel right after we got some footage. Sorry if the video is not as great since there were a lot of people at this thing. I did like some of the music since I do like J-Pop and still listen to it on my I Heart Radio app even when it pops up on my Favorites radio with Baby Metal, Asian KungFu Generation, and I think I have High & Mighty Color and a bit of Gackt time to time.

I hope you enjoy these videos and the rest of the coverage we have brought you from this past Holiday Matsuri. Now they are gearing up for this year’s and already have some of the forms up. We are definitely going back and hoping to stay at the World Center since that was great too.

Speaking of press, good news is that we now have press passes for Omni Expo 2018 and excited about it! I will be doing the Convention Spotlight either towards the end of this month or early February since the convention is in March again. So, stay tuned everyone!

Conventions: Voice Actors Panel from Holiday Matsuri 2017!

Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe and time to continue the Holiday Matsuri Coverage!

Saturday, Dec. 16: Voice Actor’s Panel:

So, another Saturday event which happens to be the Voice Actors Panel on that Saturday with Charlotte Chung, J. Michael Tatum, Brandon McInnis, and Fred Tatasciore. We covered this one as our press requirement which I wanted to do their Holiday Panel but it wasn’t on the schedule but it did take place but hey we at least got this one. I know this is so out of order but our Friday stuff is going to be on Google Drive so I can get it onto YouTube as soon as I can with the magic of my Galaxy Tablet! (Yes, trying to navigate that thing!)

Anyways, I did get to ask a question which happened to be the Fave Holiday Moment which I started adding to my interview questions for Holiday Matsuri but due to what took place this year with interviews I did ask some of the interview questions I had for people and ask them during panels. The stories the actors gave were pretty good, even Brandon gave a Fourth of July one which does count as a holiday and it was during the time he was in Japan. You will get to hear that. Gondras did help people with questions to ask while we were in line especially with our fave question, “What was the funniest moment in the booth?” This is the number one question that I always love to ask because I heard stories of funny moments in commentaries and that is how the question came to be and you will also hear those answers to that question and it was pretty funny with Fred. I have a feeling that is one answer he would give if we had that one on one.

Well, that is about it for this post! I hope you enjoy the videos with this panel and stay tuned for the rest! I am not sure if I should post the Idol Festival if that is one of the videos on our SD card because of the music being copyrighted and the footage was not as great.

What is next though? The Bests & Worsts of 2017 and man my fingers are going to hurt with this one with the amount of stuff to talk about! Stay tuned!
