Makeup Geek eye shadows have taken the beauty world by storm. They are pigmented, soft and the best part of it, they are only £4.95! I was overwhelmed by the selection at first but decided to get three eye shadows that I could use alone for a wash of colour or together to create an evening look.
The palest of the three is Beaches and Cream, a matte cream shade that doesn't look anything special in the pan, but on the lid it creates the perfect base for any warm toned look. I love wearing this on its own with winged liner, or as a transition shade, a real staple shade for anyone who wears eyeshadow. My favourite of the three is Cocoa Bear, it is a gorgeous rich looking brown with red undertones, perfect for blue eyes. Again it is a matte finish, so I tend to wear this with other shimmery or glitter eyeshadow shades to make it more wearable. Every time I do a smokey eye I always reach for this as my crease shade, I just love it!
Lastly is Magic Act, again a very "bog standard" sort of shade, but honestly, they are what I like. This is a super shimmery gold, worn all over the lid or in the inner corners it adds so much glamour to a makeup look. To intensify this shadow even more I have used a pencil brush and wet it, because it is a foiled shadow the colour becomes so intense and almost looks wet on the lids, it is just amazing! The foiled shadows are a little more expensive at £7.95, but they are so worth it, and I would say much better than the shimmery MAC eyeshadows I have!
I'm so impressed by all three of these eyeshadows and support the MUG hype! I have picked all three of these up from Beauty Bay... What Makeup Geek eyeshadows should I add to my collection?
