More MakeupGeek Eyeshadows

I couldn't help it, after falling in love with the 9 Makeup Geek eyeshadows I already own I went back and bought 5 more. The ones I had were all matte, and I really wanted to try some shimmery ones too. I'm glad I did, as these are seriously great quality shadows for such a bargain price.

They're US $5.99 from the Makeup Geek store which has international shipping. I paid just under $40 for all 5 including postage, which I think is a great deal. A single MAC eyeshadow costs the same as 5 of those.

I ended up getting:
- Shimma Shimma (shimmery cream highlighter)
- Cosmopolitan (burnt orange shimmer)
- Sensuous (smokey plum)
- Prom Night (purplish taupe)
- Moondust (greyish taupe)

The colours I chose aren't exactly unique (I probably have a billion dupes just for Prom Night and Moondust) but I picked them for their quality. Every single one is highly pigmented, long lasting and has no fall out.

I can't wait to use them. In the meantime if you want to see swatches of my matte Makeup Geek eyeshadows click HERE or to see some previous eye looks I'd done with them click HERE.

Have you tried Makeup Geek eyeshadows yet? What do you think of these?

  2. I never heard of this brand before but I definitely thought these were mac eyeshadow at first glance. The pigmentation looks really great, I'm currently stalking your other eye looks now! xxx

    1. I'm a bit stuck when it comes to Cosmopolitan actually. I love how it looks, but I don't know how to wear it! Will have to figure something out!

  5. Oooh, these look lovely! I'm dying to get my hands on some of these shadows but I have so many shadows already I don't know if I can justify it! Though your reviews are definitely helping! xx

    1. Oh trust me babe, I have a billion shadows myself but just couldn't help it! At that price I couldn't really say no could I?

  6. I've been toying with the idea of buying more MAC shadows and a Z palette lately, but I think after reading your posts I'll be going with Makeup Geek eyeshadows instead! They're so pigmented and shimmery and just damn pretty!

    1. Oh you definitely won't regret it if you get these shadows, the quality is amazing and there are also a lot of MAC dupes there too! :)

    1. I've been putting it on my lid and blending it out with brown in the crease, but I don't think it suits me much that way so need to find another way to use it.

    2. I've been playing around with it, also with browns. I think purple would work well -- I have only one so I'm not sure. Will you post updates it you come up with other looks? The colour is so pretty; it begs to be used!!

    3. Ooh purples, now that's an idea! I think the contrast would look great! And for sure, once I come up with a half decent look I'll definitely do a post. I really love the colour too, but so far I can't get it to look nice on me.
