My Experience with Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma Eyeshadow Pan:
Packaging: 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.
Shade: “Shimma Shimma” is described as a metallic champagne. True to description, it is light creamy beige with a very frosty sheen. There are no chunky glitters, but it gives off a beautiful metallic shine. This shade is very versatile; while it performs excellent as an all-over lid color, I adore this as an inner corner highlight. It works so well to open up the eyes and can also work as a good brow bone highlight provided you use a light hand as it can look very stark if applied heavily. This shade would be in my “top 5 picks” from the Makeup Geek shadows I own.
Pigmentation: Pigmentation of this shade is excellent. I was surprised to see that it yields almost opaque coverage in one layer considering it is such a pale shade. Truly brilliant!
Texture and Blendability: The texture of this eyeshadow is very smooth and has a touch of creaminess. There is absolutely no grittiness to it. I had no problem packing this on and blending it into other shadows.
Staying Power: Staying power is amazing. I did not see any fading or creasing for over 8 hours with an eye primer underneath.
Overall, I am thoroughly enjoying using these Makeup Geek eyeshadows. 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 “Chickadee” in as a transition shade deepened with “Frappe” and “Cocoa Bear” in the crease and “Shimma Shimma” all over the lid. I did a golden cut crease with Lime crime eye liner in “Rhythm.”
