For the first time in Roshni Reviews history (this is a big thing) I have tried the eyeshadows from the American beauty brand Make Up Geek!
The only thing I had tried before from Make Up Geek was one of the sparklers (a loose glitter) which took some getting used to but was pretty impressive when I worked out how to use it! You can read my review of that here…
Until recently Make Up Geek was hard to get hold of here in the UK, but then BeautyBay.com started to sell their products and everyone has gone mad for them.
I had heard SO much about the pan eyeshadows from Make Up Geek being REALLY pigmented, smooth and blendable so I just had to try them. They are quite reasonably priced I would say – much more inexpensive compared to MAC or Urban Decay but with those brands I’d say you are paying for the name in part.
My eyeshadows cost £4.95 for the matte and duo chrome shadows and then £7.95 for the foiled eyeshadow. (I almost forgot to put the . in there so it looked like £795. Damn that’s expensive).
The first shade I got was a Foiled Eyeshadow in the shade ‘In The Spotlight’ (pictured above yo) which is a beautiful peachy gold shimmer shade. This is SO BRIGHT – I haven’t yet tried these shadows on my lids yet but I have swatched them and been amazed at the pigmentation!
The second shade I got was a matte shade called ‘Bitten’. This is a gorgeous and understated red/brown crease shade. The texture of these is so buttery – I think because of this there is a little bit of fall out but I think I could deal with that.
This shade will be really useful as a pop of colour in the crease – I think it will come off more brown than anything but you can’t beat a good brown in your collection!! Especially a warm one…
Finally I bought a duo chrome shade called ‘Secret Garden’ which has green and blue/brown flecks running through it and it looks really beautiful as an all over lid colour.
I am impressed with these so far and will definitely post a tutorial on a look using them OR do a video on my channel swatching and using them!
Speaking of which, here are the swatches of these lovely shades…the palette I am storing them in is actually one I made for a measly £1.85!! I showed you in a post how I made it here, as Z palettes are so bloody expensive for what they are.
Have you tried any Make Up Geek eyeshadows? Are there any other shades I should try/lust over?!
Thanks for reading 🙂
