Makeup Geek Eyeshadows Review, Swatches & Photos
Makeup Geek Eyeshadows ($5.99 pan) are a line of cruelty-free eyeshadows created by the Youtube guru, Marlena.
Mocha, Bling and Latte
The line features something like 60 shadows, but I only picked up 3 of them this time and here is my review.
The three shadows I picked up were:
Bling: Frosted slightly warm ivory (Site says this is a MAC Mylar dupe.)
Mocha: Deep matte brown (Site says this is a MAC Brown Down dupe.)
Latte: Matte medium brown (Site says this is a MAC Saddle dupe.)
Bling Up Close & Swatched
Mocha Up Close & Swatched
Latte Up Close & Swatched
The browns were a little dry and chalky, but as you can see from the pictures the pigmentation on them is still really good.
I keep hearing people say they’re comparable to MAC shadows and while I’m not ready to say that I do think they’re nice shadows for the price.
Here are my pros & cons..
Easy to blend
The browns were a little dry/chalky.
The pans aren’t magnetized so I can’t put them in my empty MAC palette like I had planned. You can put them into something like a Z palette though.
Overall, I’m happy with the shadows and will purchase from the line again.
If you’re a girl on a budget or just looking for a great deal I recommend you check them out.
