Hi sweeties! <3 I think it’s been 3 weeks since I last posted something! :O I’m so sorry about that! I was home from college during Easter and visited family and friends and this week I’ve had lots of assignments to do at school! But I’ve managed to film 2 new videos that I just need to edit, so most likely, one will be up on monday! This post will be a review of Makeup Geek’s 5 new eyeshadows that they launched last week! If you follow my blog, facebook or Youtube channel you’ve definitely heard of Makeup Geek, since I use their shadows and gel liners in almost every look! <3 Their shadows are very beautiful, soft and super pigmented, and these new ones are no exception! I would even say that they’re more pigmented, which I didn’t think was possible! Here are my swatches: I think they look beautiful in the picture, but they’re even more gorgeous in real life! <3 So the names of the shadows, as you can see, are Graphite, Cosmopolitan, Simply Marlena, Hipster and Frappé.
Graphite is a shimmery medium grey color, with a few, gorgeous silver flecks in it! I think this would look gorgeous to bring some sparkle to a black smokey eye! ;D
Cosmopolitan is the eyeshadow I’ve been waiting to add to my makeup collection! I’ve been looking for the perfect rose gold and this is the one! <3 It’s shimmery and truly vibrant! It’s also very pigmented and applies softly. Today, I filmed a tutorial using this one on the lids
Simply Marlena is a bright, but not neon bright pink! And I love that, cuz I don’t have a similar pink! It’s named after the gorgeous owner of Makeup Geek, Marlena! The first thing I thought when I saw this one was “Finally a Makeup Geek pink!” They have a couple of pinkish colors already, but this one is a true pink! <3 It’s also matte and has a cool undertone. I just really love it… it’s bright and fun and applies like a dream!
Hipster is a slightely shimmery, sandy taupe color. It’s quite dark and is cool-toned. I would wear this in the crease for an everyday look! ;D
Frappé is a matte, medium redish brown. Since it’s a reddish brown, it is a very warm color! It is similar to my favorite brown from them, “Cocoa Bear” which is also a very warm, matte brown. Frappé is just a bit lighter then Cocoa Bear. I used these 2 together in the crease in the video I filmed today and I loved the combo! <3
My overall view of the eyeshadows is that they are all very smooth without leaving fallout, they’re pigmented, vibrant and easy to apply! I have nothing bad to say about them, so this might be a boring review for you to read, hehe
You can get the eyeshadows in pans for $5,99 each, here and in compacts for $7,99 each, here. They contain 1,8g/0,064oz of product, which I think makes the price very good, especially with the amazing quality you’re getting! ^-^ An other big plus is that they ship all over the world!
As you can see from the first picture, there are more than these 5 eyeshadows. With these last ones I completed my Makeup Geek shadow collection! And that’s all thanks to Makeup Geek, that was super kind and sent them to me! <3 I just organized them and placed them in my Z-palettes! My beautiful babies!
I hope you found this review helpful and I’ll talk to you when my next look comes out!
