Review: New Makeup Geek eyeshadows! :D

Hi sweeties! ❀ 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! πŸ˜€ Makeup Geek new shadowsThis post will be a review of Makeup Geek’s 5 new eyeshadows that they launched last week! πŸ˜€ 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! ❀ 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! πŸ˜‰ Here are my swatches: Makeup Geek swatchesI think they look beautiful in the picture, but they’re even more gorgeous in real life! ❀ So the names of the shadows, as you can see, are Graphite, Cosmopolitan, Simply Marlena, Hipster and FrappΓ©.

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! ❀ It’s shimmery and truly vibrant! It’s also very pigmented and applies softly. πŸ˜€ Today, I filmed a tutorial using this one on the lids πŸ˜‰

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! πŸ˜€ 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! ❀ 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

FrappΓ© 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. FrappΓ© 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! ❀

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 πŸ˜‰

You can get the eyeshadows in pans for $5,99 each,Β hereΒ and in compacts for $7,99 each,Β here. πŸ™‚ 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! ❀ I just organized them and placed them in my Z-palettes! My beautiful babies! πŸ˜€

  1. Oh wow! You already got them! I saw them on the makeup geek site!:) I really want the Simply Marlena one! πŸ˜€

  2. Cecile, there are 8 eye shadows in the picture, but you only swatched 6! Did you mean to do that? Just wondering! πŸ˜€ ❀

  3. OOOOOhhhhh! Never mind, I must of read the last paragraph without thinking! hehe ooops! πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€
    πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

  4. I really want to get all of the MUG shadows, and I want to try their lipsticks too. πŸ˜€ I also saw, that your Z Palettes hold 28 shadows, and the Raspberry Z Palette I have only holds 27….is that supposed to be right? Just wondering if you know! πŸ˜€

    • I really don’t know… I bought two of the z-palettes from Makeup Geek, so it should be the same palette, but I might have pushed them in place hehe…. cuz there is not a lot of place left in that palette xD

  5. Such a pretty collection! I love how you organised your pans. Of course the middle palette is my favourite but all the shadows look great. Makeup Geek seem like a fantastic company, I have to eventually get a collection of their shadows.

    • Thank you so much! πŸ˜€ Hehe, that is my fave as well.. but you probably understood that ;D Yes, they are truly good cuality! My fave brands are Sugarpill, Inglot and Makeup Geek and you already love Sugarpill and Inglot, so I know you’ll love Makeup Geek just as much! :-*
