Hello everybody! :)
First of all I would like to say thank you to Makeupgeek for sending me these eyeshadows! :) Ever since they got out I've wanted to try them out and today I got twelve of them to dig my makeup brushes into.
And to my readers: I assure you that this review is honest and that the opinions are completely my own. I wasn't paid to do this review or anything.
I know I said earlier that I'm not that fond of swatches - well, I've changed my mind completely about them! :) Swatches are great, how could I miss that fact before? And they're fun to make too!
Anyway, I've divided the Makeup geek eyeshadows I got into two categories; natural and colorful. My overall impression is that they are really good eyeshadows and absolutely worth the $5.99 that you can buy them for at www.makeupgeek.com. However, the pigmentation varies between the different shadows.
To make this review easier to grip I'm going to rate them from 1-5 where 1 is lowest and 5 is the highest.
Now we're going to dig deeper into the colors. :)
NOTE: THE SWATCH TO THE LEFT IS THE EYESHADOW ON TOP OF NYX JUMBO PENCIL IN "MILK" AND THE SWATCH TO THE RIGHT IS ON TOP OF BARE SKIN.
This is one of my favorites from the MUG eyeshadows!
On top of NYX Jumbo pencil in "Milk" it looks just great!
Not too bad pigmentation and it looks great both with and without a white base.
Purely naked, a soft nude brown with a subtle shimmer.
This one has a great pigmentation!
When put over NYX Jumbo Pencil, though, it is utterly pretty with it's golden sparkles so I can't do anything but liking it! :)
So, as I said, overall I really like these eyeshadows! :) I'm definitely going to try out the rest of them as well some day!
Tomorrow I will probably make a tutorial, either with these shadows of with my new M.A.C. ones.
I hope that this review has been helpful!
