Many of you may have seen the post in which I give you all a look at the Makeup Geek Foiled Shadows. After writing that post and searching through their website, I decided to take the plunge and order a few shadows myself. Although I loved some of the foiled shadows, I thought the regular pressed shadows were more up my alley.
I purchased 4 shadows (Golddigger, Hipster, Peach Smoothie and Corrupt) and to give you guys a quick summary of what I think, I really do love these shadows and they are for sure worth the hype!Peach Smoothie is probably my favourite shadow that I bought. The main reason I purchused this shadow is because of Jaclyn Hill and her obsession with this colour in the crease as a transition colour. Personally, I would not think of using a peach shadow as a transition colour but her makeup is always on point so I thought I would give it a try. Peach Smoothie is amazing as a transition colour, as well as a lid colour, because it is such a smooth shadow but is very blendible which makes it easy to work with. I would say that if you were going to buy any Makeup Geek Shadow, go with Peach Smoothie!
Corrupt is another shadow that I had heard rave reviews about but unfortunately, it didn’t live up to my expectations. It is a great shadow due to it’s blendiblity but I thought it would be more pigmented. Part of the reason I was disappointed was my own fault. From reading/watching reviews as well as looking at pictures online, I thought this shadow was matte when in fact, it is described as an “intense matte black with a very subtle sparkle”. Although I do like the shadow because of it’s formula, I wouldn’t say that it is my favourite black shadow in my collection.
Hipster is a shadow that really intrigued me when I first saw it, but I’m unsure why because it is a pretty basic and neutral shadow. It is a taupe shadow that does have some shimmer in it. I think that Hipster is a beautiful crease colour that adds some nice definition to the eye but also looks nice on the lid.
Golddigger is a very basic true gold shadow but I really like it. It has a metallic finish that I love wearing on the lid as I feel like it brightens up the eyes. It is a very basic colour as I mentioned but having a nice gold is a staple in any makeup collection and I think this one is amazing due to the Makeup Geek formula.
The Makeup Geek formula is incredible and is comparable , or even better, then MAC shadows. Although MAC does have a larger colour selection, Makeup Geek does have a pretty large colour range (and is coming out with more!) but has an amazing, creamy, blendible formula.
