Here’s the review of Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in the shade “Sidekick.”
$6.00/INR 385 approximately.
I adore Makeup Geek eyeshadows. I don’t have a massive range from them, but whatever colors I have, I enjoy using them thoroughly. “Sidekick” is described as a cinnamon brown with a matte finish, I agree! It is a matte caramel cinnamon color. It’s not your regular brown eyeshadow. It has that rich warmth to it and a little yellowish tone in the color makes it a bit stand out. It is a medium pigmented eyeshadow but can be built up.
I always find that it is best to use this color with an eyeshadow primer underneath or it tends to fade and lighten up as the time passes by. It barely has a fallout. It is a gorgeous color to be worn on its own or used in combination with any other eyeshadow. This also makes a gorgeous transition color. Even to your cool-toned eyeshadow looks, this can add just the right amount of warmth. You can pair this with shimmery eyeshadow / matte eyeshadows./ metallic…you name it and you can do it.
The color would look best on those with medium to light skin tones if you want to wear it as an overall wash, but can be used in combination with any other eyeshadow and that would work for all skin tones.
The staying power of this eyeshadow is around 7 hours with an eyeshadow base underneath, and after that, it tends to look a bit faded and light. These eyeshadows are cruelty free and paraben free as well.
A few points about Makeup Geek Sidekick:
- It goes on smoothly and does not get patchy.
- It is not hard to blend.
- Brilliant price point.
- These are single eyeshadows, so you need an eyeshadow palette to store them.
- Not available in India. 🙁 But can be bought online. Be ready to pay customs though.
I have no words to describe how much I love this eyeshadow. It is that toasty brown shade that warms up just about any makeup look and gives that softness to the overall look.
“Sidekick” is definitely a favourite from Makeup Geek.
