Makeup Geek Haul and Review


I may have gone a bit wild and spent a fortune on Makeup Geek. Who am I kidding? There's no 'may' about it. All things rational when out the window the second I started Googling swatches. Anyway, since I did buy a lot, I thought why not do a haul and a mini review.

 Eyeshadows:

In The Spotlight (foiled)- The foiled eyeshadows are so intense and pigmented. This shade is a pinky coral that would look stunning all over the lid.

Starry Eyed (foiled)- Now this is the perfect inner corner highlight. It's an intense champagne beige that really brightens up the eyes.

Showtime (foiled)- This is a 'wow' shade. It's a warm dark rosy brown with a pink shimmer running through it. It's not chunky in the slightest and would look great on the outer corners of the eyes.

Bada Bing (shimmer)- This is a dark brown with flecks of gold. I think it would be the perfect shade for a smokey eye and looks great for this time of year.

Pretentious (shimmer)- I love this eyeshadow. It's a warm metallic bronze with a gold undertone. However, I think it has a bit of olive in it. It's very subtle, but on me, it has an olive green undertone which is gorgeous. It's a great everyday eyeshadow if you want something a bit different.

Top-Bottom: In The Spotlight, Starry Eyed, Bada Bing, Showtime, Pretentious,  Roulette, Country Girl, Anarchy, Mango Tango, Wild West and Cherry Cola

Roulette (shimmer)- This is one of my favourite shades as it's a very warm toned rosy copper. It has hints of orange but also hints of rose. The formula is Makeup Geek at its finest. Smooth and pigmented.

Country Girl (shimmer)- I'm a little disappointed by this eyeshadow as the texture is quite dry and you don't get a lot of pay off. The shade is also a little underwhelming but it's still nice. It's a shimmery pinky brown that has rose tones. I will say that it's a great one to go for if you want to try a pink eyeshadow whilst still remaining in the neutral zone.

Anarchy (shimmer)- A smooth cranberry with a fine pink shimmer. The formula of this is so creamy and smooth. It's easy to blend and although it is a cranberry, it's very easy to wear and is surprisingly subtle. A great colour for Autumn.

Mango Tango (satin)- I think this is a rather brave shade. It's a vibrant peachy coral with flecks of gold. It's not quite a shimmer, but also not matte. It's more of a satin finish. I'm still figuring out how to wear this but come Summer, I think I'll be wearing it non stop.

Wild West (matte)- I have no idea how to describe this. It's a matte mid toned brown that slightly warm, slightly cool and very smooth. It's quite a muted shade that has a subtle rosy undertone.

Cherry Cola (matte)- I'd call this a red toned dark brown. It's slightly warm, but also has cooler undertones making it a great suit everyone shade. 

Cheek Products:

I've not tried any cheek products from Makeup Geek before so instead of buying everything, I restrained myself and picked up two.

Top-Bottom: Complicated, Desire

Complicated (contour)- This is my perfect contour colour. It's a mid toned matte brown that's ashy without making the skin look flat. It's very creamy and easy to blend. It looks incredibly natural too.

Desire (blush)- Desire is a deep mauvey pink that's right up my alley. It's very pigmented so a light hand with this is a must. It's nice and creamy and would suit so many skin tones.

I'm definitely running out of space in my Z Palettes for all of these shades! So far, I'm really impressed with all of the colours I picked up. As I bought so many, it's going to be a fun few months of trying them out properly!

What's your favourite Makeup Geek shade?

Thanks for reading,
Avani

  5. So beautiful! I actually haven't tried Makeup Geek Shadows yet, but this definitely inspires me to try them out. If I were to buy one, I'd get "Starry Eyed" because it's such a pretty color to brighten the eyes. :)
