This review will be on Makeup Geek Foiled Shadow in the shade “Grandstand.” This is part of my second Makeup Geek shadow haul.
With these rich and intensely-hued shades, the new Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows go beyond your standard line of cosmetics, introducing you to a new and powerful cosmetic experience. This cutting-edge formula offers a creamy texture that is a hybrid between a powder shadow and a cream shadow that is on a level of its own. The intense pigmentation combined with an opaque, metallic finish make these shadows a dream to work with. These can be applied effortlessly in just one swipe with no primer required! Our lineup includes a diverse array of rich colors and a smooth silky formula that we believe help elevate pressed eye shadows to the next level of exceptional quality.
My Experience with Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow Grandstand:
I love Makeup Geek shadows for the most part and the foiled range is simply outstanding.
This eyeshadow comes in a pan which you have to pop into 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.
Texture and Blendability: I adore the texture of these Makeup Geek foiled shadows They feel almost like cream to touch. They adhere well even onto bare lids, but you will obviously get better wear if you pair with a primer base. I found the best way to get the most payoff with these shadows is by using your fingertips.
Shade: “Grandstand” is described as a medium rose gold with slight taupe undertones and a foiled finish. It is such a stunning rosy brown shade which lends itself to creation of sultry romantic eye looks. It is a perfect shade for date nights. I adore this shade.
Pigmentation: This eyeshadow being from the “foiled” collection, is intensely (and I mean “intense”) pigmented. It goes completely opaque in one layer. I find it’s best to use this shadow as an all-over lid shade and lightly diffused the edges with a matte shadow.
Staying Power: Staying power is fantastic. I have worn this for 7-8 hours with barely any fading. It does crease a little 5-6 hours into wear especially on a hot and humid day. To avoid this, use a good primer and make sure to set it with some translucent powder to absorb all hint of oil on the lids.
Overall, I absolutely recommend this eyeshadow.
In the EOTD, I have “Grandstand” on the lids paired with a hot pink shade from the Juvia’s Place Masquerade Palette.
