That’s What She Said: Makeup Geek Eye-Shadows!

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Review Z-Palette

Having been a fan of Marlena, aka Makeup Geek for quite a while I was dying to try the makeup range she brought out last year. I’m not a person who impulse buys though, and I’m pretty good at resisting beauty products if i don't need them. As it so happens the lovely Jessica was selling some of the eye shadows as she found out she was allergic to one of the ingredients. I jumped at the chance to own them, and here we are! I got twelve shadows in a variety of colours that come in a sturdy Z-Palette. I’ve become more partial to a pan format recently and have been tempted to depot my single shadows into Z-Palettes, so this was a great way for me to see how I liked this kind of organization.

Being compared to MAC but a fraction of the price, these MUG shadows are everything I hoped. Pigmented, smooth and long lasting with a whole rainbow of colours to choose from. With lots of different finishes there's something for every occasion.

Beaches & Cream: Creamy Matte Natural Beige with Just A Hint of Peach.
Glamorous: Shimmery bronze gold.
Unicorn: Shimmery Blue Purple.
Duchess: Matte cool purple.

At only $5.99 each the quality is amazing, I can’t believe I never caved for these earlier. I am 100% going to be picking up more in the future as I can see this becoming my “travel palette” as sometimes I find myself without colours when I want to do a bright look.

You can buy Makeup Geek Eye Shadows here, with 56 colours to choose from. You can find a look I’ve done with Glamorous here.
