Continuing with the reviews on my Makeup Geek eyeshadow collection – this review will be on the shade “Bada Bing.”
Get your mafia groove on with this dark, sultry color… the gold specks even match your gaudy pinky ring. We’d tell you the secret behind this gorgeous shadow, but then we’d have to kill you. (fish heads not included).
My Experience with Makeup Geek Bada Bing Eyeshadow:
Packaging: This eyeshadow comes in a pan, which you have to pop in a magnetic palette. I do like the flexibility this provides for customizing a palette based on your needs, but this also means you have to shell out extra to buy the Z palette on top of buying the eyeshadow.
Shade and Finish: “Bada Bing” is described as a “gold-flecked” chocolate brown with a subtle sparkly finish. It has loose flecks of gold glitter in it which mostly blend away leaving a mostly matte- demi-satin finish on the skin. The color is a rich deep warm chocolate brown, a perfect crease color.
Texture/Pigmentation/Blendability: This eyeshadow is very smooth to touch despite the presence of shimmer and it is not gritty. It has great pigmentation and a little touch of brush is more than enough to pack a good opaque color payoff and blends out with ease, without sheering out or getting patchy. It is a delight to use and does not cause fallout.
Staying Power: It wears without creasing or fading for 8-9 hours with primer.
Overall, I am very happy with this shade and I will recommend it all looking for a nice, deep, versatile brown shade to add to your kit.
