New Makeup Geek Pigments

Very recently 5 new shades of pigments has been launched by Makeup Geek. All of them are fall colors and the shades are definitely flirting with the current metallic trend. As usual with my swatches the one to the left is the pigment applied dry over NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk and the one to the right is the pigment applied wet.

Blitz is a medium reddish brown with a subtle shimmer. The shade would probably fall somewhere in between copper and burgundy and is the kind of shade that can be used to turn a regular smokey eye into a far more exciting creation. Pair it with a lighter copper or gold and your fall-look is done!

Vegas lights is more of a glitter than a pigment and is almost identical to MAC's Copper sparkle, except that the latter has larger chunks of glitter. The color is perfect to bring out blue eyes and looks astonishing paired with Blitz.

The color of Nightlife is a little bit harder to pinpoint. After having given it some thought, though, one can see that it is a medium taupe with a slight hint of pink. A lovely mysterious color that can be used in everyday looks as well as more festive creations.

As the name suggests Kryptonite is green, but a muted, olive-ish green rather than the cartoon-style radioactive color that one might associate with the name. Wonderful metallic finish that can be used on its own for a subtle, yet more fun everyday look or with a darker moss-green to add some drama to your eyes.

Makeup Geek describes Bewtiched as a "light amethyst purple"which is definitely the best words to describe it. :) The color makes you think of magic and Glinda the good witch. Oh boy, do I wish I had had this pigment in February when I made my Amethyst birthstone look? :P

You already know that I love the compact eyeshadows by Makeup Geek but I have to say that I am even more impressed by their pigments. The only thing I have to complain about is that the jars are kind of overfull so the pigment tends to escape when you open it, but honestly, it's no big deal. Otherwise, they are beyond awesome and I really hope there will be more colors in the future. :)

Price: $6.99 and you can buy them here --> Makeup Geek Store

  1. I'm supposed to be on a "no buy," but Nightlife is calling my name. Such a pretty color...

    1. Nightlife is definitely a worthy reason to cheat on a "no buy". ;)

  2. Love Kryptonite, and Bewitched would go so well with my new cyberlox!
