Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Review


If you follow me on YouTube you may know I use Makeup Geek's eyeshadows a fair amount in my tutorials. Most of the popular mainstream youtube girls use Makeup Geek, so you can imagine that I bought them out of curiosity and I ended up being fairly impressed! 

The Makeup Geek eyeshadows are sold as refills and single eyeshadows. Since they the Z Palette on their website I decided to opt for my own custom palette. I believe you can never own too many neutral palettes and I wanted to create one specifically for travelling. 

From left: Vanilla Bean, Beaches and Cream, Creme Brulee, Latte, Cocoa Bear, and Corrupt

Vanilla Bean - A warm ivory with a satin finish. Perfect for blending out harsh edges, using as a base on the lid, and highlighting the inner corner very subtly. 

Beaches and Cream - A very warm tan shade. Translates very warm on the eye but looks beautiful when blended into the crease with more neutral shades. A great option for medium skin tones.

Creme Brulee - A Orange- based Brown, I find myself using this shade a lot on my crease for definition and nothing else. Definitely a shade worth owning! Looks good on all skin tones. 

Latte - A matte medium brown with a slight cool undertone. I like to use this shade in my outer corner for added definition. It's a very standard shadow but then again you can never own too many matte shades! 

Cocoa Bear - A matte Red Brown. A great shade to have in your kit as it can be used on all skin tones. It would be perfect for darker skin tones as a transitional shade.  

Corrupt - A matte Black with subtle glitter. This shade is very Black and doesn't turn Blue/Green when it's blended, some Black shadows have the tendency the change colour when blended. It's always a good thing to test before purchasing a Black eye shadow. 

Overview - Makeup Geek shadows are great for the price. The formula of the eyeshadows are buttery soft although you should expect some fall out from the pan. I recommend creating your own travel palette with neutral shades, I use mine for when I'm in a hurry getting ready or just to pop in my travel bag when I need a quick option.
