I'm super excited about finally being able to share what I picked up from Makeup Geek with you! If you didn't know Makeup Geek is another brand that all the American beauty gurus rave about (especially their eye shadows). They are known for producing high quality eye shadow at affordable prices. Makeup Geek wasn't readily available here in the UK. But they are now available from Beauty Bay! However, the eye shadows and Z palettes sold out so quick I was only able to get my mitts on a few shades. But here they are:
Z Palette // £8.05
Makeup Geek shadows are sold individually so, obviously I needed a palette to put them in! I originally wanted the black larger palette but they were all sold out so opted for the smaller pink one. I will be getting the bigger one to allow my collection to grow! The Makeup Geek pans are magnetic so they don't slip or slide around, but the palette also comes with adhesive tabs for other eye shadow pans. I'm actually really impressed with the palette. The palettes are cardboard, When I've seen them in YouTube videos they don't look overly sturdy, but they really are!
Makeup Geek Eye Shadow in the shade Rapunzel // £4.95
This is a beautiful peachy champagne colour with a metallic finish. This has a silky smooth texture that isn't powdery! This would make a great brow bone highlight for those who have darker or olive skin tones! But I like to wear this all over the lid.
Shimma Shimma // £4.95
This is one of the shadows I have heard the American beauty gurus rave about! This is a light beige colour with warm undertones. This again is buttery smooth and makes an excellent inner corner highlight!
Cinderella // £4.95
This is a lovely pale shimmery pink!
Chickadee // £4.95
This is one my favourites out of the shades I have! Its a warm, matte, yellow orange colour. I love this blend through the crease. And it compliments my dark brown eyes amazingly!
Latte // £4.95
This is a beautiful matte, warm toned brown! Another excellent crease colour!
Sorbet // £4.95
This is pastel light pink colour. That would look great in crease with a pink eye look.
Cosmopolitan // £4.95
This is a stunning rose gold colour with a golden orange sheen! This looks beautiful on the outer third of the eye.
Overall, the shades that I have are all buttery smooth, highly pigmented, easy to blend and last all day! These are amazing value for money! They have everything you would expect from shadows with a much higher price tag. Coco Bear and peach smoothie are next on my list when they come back in stock!
Z Palettes and Makeup Geek Eye shadows are available from beautybay.com
