Recently, I hauled a bunch of Makeup Geek eyeshadows, you can see the preview post and swatches of all shades here. This review will be on the shade “Glamorous.”
Limousines and diamond rings, shoppin’ for expensive things. That’s what Fergie says is glamorous… I say wear this bronzy gold shadow instead- it’s cheaper than a limo, but just as nice. About Makeup Geek Eyeshadows – These are all highly-pigmented – just check out the swatches! – Half the price of high-end shadows without sacrificing quality – These pans can be placed in empty palettes such as Z-Palettes. – Eyeshadow pan weight is 1.8G / 0.064 oz – With a separate palette, you can build your own custom palettes. All our shadows are cruelty-free, we do not test our products on animals. These eyeshadows are talc and paraben free.
$6 each for regular and the duo chrome eyeshadows, not the foiled ones.
My Experience with Makeup Geek Glamorous Eyeshadow Pan:
Packaging: This eyeshadow comes in a pan which you have to pop into a magnetic palette. I do like the flexibility this format 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: “Glamorous” is described as a shimmery bronze gold. It is a stunning coppery gold with a hint of brown undertone. It has a highly reflective sheen but without the presence of chunky shimmer. It has such even and saturated color that it sometimes looks like a cream shadow on the eyes. If you love gold, you will love this shade! It is a must-have for weddings, parties or for brides. This shade will look flattering on all skin tones. This shade might be one of my favorites.
Pigmentation: Pigmentation of this shade is fantastic. It just glided on the lid with full opaque color in one layer.
Texture and Blendability: The texture of this eyeshadow is very smooth. It does not feel powdery but has a hint of creaminess that I have not noticed with the Makeup Geek mattes but it was also effortless to blend and merge with other shadows without looking like I have harsh edges. It does not emphasize any texture on the lids. I did not experience any fall out.
Staying Power: Staying power is amazing. I do not see any fading or creasing for over 8 hours with an eye primer underneath.
Overall, I am thoroughly enjoying using these Makeup Geek shadows. I have used many eyeshadows from across all brands and I can honestly say that these Makeup Geek shadows definitely have that high-end feel in terms of its ease of use and smooth texture. And I feel you just cannot beat this high quality for this price. I highly recommend this eyeshadow.
In the EOTD, I have used “Glamorous” all over the lid blended with “Chickadee” and “Cocoa Bear” in the crease.
