My current love affair is with the Makeup Geek eyeshadows. I hauled a bunch of shades and I can’t put them down. I love mixing and matching, and this particular shade from the “Foiled” line makes me swoon every single time I look at it.
Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow Pan is a creamy eyeshadow with a foiled metallic finish. 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 eyeshadows to the next level of exceptional quality.
$10 for the foiled shadows.
My Experience with Makeup Geek Pegasus Eyeshadow Pan:
Packaging: These eyeshadows come 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: The shade “Pegasus” (how magical is the name) is described as a light, bright aqua with a foiled finish. intensely bright light aqua. It has a bright silver sheen when it catches the light. This shade will make you feel like a mermaid every time you wear it. I love this shade! It has quite a lot of shimmers but these shimmers merge into this color so well that it’s hard to detect them individually.
Pigmentation: This eyeshadow being from the “Foiled” collection is intensely (and I mean “intense”) pigmented. It goes super opaque in one layer. It has a touch of creaminess and is not completely powdery. Though it does stand out, it’s best packed on the lid with a flat shadow brush (I love using my Sonia Kashuk small shadow brush for this), but the edges on it are also quite easy to blend into the other shadows.
Texture and Blendability: The texture was smooth, not gritty at all. It does not emphasize any texture on the lids. I did not experience any fallout and it does not kick up any powder when you dip your brush in.
Staying Power: Staying power is fantastic. I have worn this for 8-9 hours with barely any fading. It did crease just a little bit by 6 hours, but the weather being so hot and with my oily lids, I am willing to give it a pass for this.
Overall, I am thoroughly enjoying using these Makeup Geek eyeshadows. I have used many many eyeshadows from across all brands and I can honestly say that these Makeup Geek shadows definitely rank up there with the high-end quality feel with amazing pigmentation and ease of use. And I feel you just cannot beat this high quality at this price. I highly highly recommend these eyeshadows.
In the EOTD, I have used the shade “Pegasus” as the star shadow on the lid and blended with “Time Travel” in the crease and a little bit of “Frappe.” The highlight in the inner corner is the shade “High Wire” mixed with “Pegasus.”
