I have compiled a pretty good collection of Makeup Geek eyeshadows. To be honest I’m not really that much of an eyeshadow person. I do go through phases of obsessing with a particular eyeshadow. Right now its Satin Taupe by MAC. But normally on a day to day basis I just wear mascara. Don’t get me wrong I love doing eyeshadow looks but I prefer to do them for special events or a night out.
Makeup Geek was founded by an amazing Youtuber, Marlena. They offer products like eyeshadows, blushes, and brushes. I own 23 eyeshadows, six of them are the foiled eyeshadows. Almost all of the eyeshadows I have are neutral colors. These eyeshadows are awesome. They are creamy, easy to blend, and the pigmentation is great. The regular eyeshadows are $6 each and the foiled eyeshadows are $10. You do have to pay for shipping but it’s super affordable (less than $5). The only negative is having to purchase a Z-palette (if you don’t already have one) because the eyeshadows are sold in individual pans. I purchased my Z-palette at Sephora during last year’s VIB sale. The larger size is $28 and the smaller size is $18. Makeup Geek also sells a variety of Z-palettes. Check them out here.
Enjoy the swatches!
Some of my favorites are Burlesque, Bitten, Gold Digger, Peach Smoothie, Chickadee, and Cocoa Bear. Even though I love Bitten, I do find it a bit chalky. I personally think it’s really hard to find perfect matte eyeshadows. That is why BLENDING is always crucial. My favorite matte eyeshadows are from Urban Decay and I’m dying to try Make Up For Ever Artist Eyeshadows. I LOVE all of the foiled eyeshadows! I cannot get over how amazing the pigmentation is. I totally recommend checking those out!
What’s your favorite eyeshadow brand?
