Eyeshadows

Makeup Geek’s regular eyeshadows retail for $6 which is pretty much the normal price for most pan eyeshadows. I like most of their shadows but they are a bit powdery.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows- Neutrals

Peach Smoothie, Chickadee, Preppy, & Barcelona Beach

Peach Smoothie is a soft peachy orange with a matte finish. This is one of my favorite MUG shadows!! It’s perfect for the crease!

Chickadee is a tangerine orange with yellow undertones and a matte finish.

Preppy is a matte khaki brown.

Barcelona Beach is a cool toned soft brown with a matte finish. This is another favorite!!

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows- Grays & Black

Stealth, Graphite, & Corrupt

Stealth is a medium gray with strong slate blue undertones and a matte finish. This is another favorite! I absolutely love grey shadows!!

Graphite is a light graphite grey with flecks of silver. I love this one! I need to pull it out more!

Corrupt is an intense matte black with a very subtle sparkle. This is the darkest black I’ve tried!

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows- Bitten & Cocoa Bear

Bitten & Cocoa Bear

Bitten is an earthy maroon with a matte finish. I love this one!

Cocoa Bear is a matte reddish brown. This is one of my most used shadows!

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows- Greens

Appletini, Shimmermint, & Envy

Appletini is a shimmery apple green with flecks of gold. Unfortunately I think this shade was discontinued.

Shimmermint is a metallic mint green with gold shimmer. I love this one!! I’m pretty sure it was discontinued too.

Envy is a deep metallic green. This looks more green on the eyes than it does in a swatch.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows- Blues

Glass Slipper & Peacock

Glass Slipper is a pale teal with a slight shimmer. I think this one was discontinued too.

Peacock is a matte deep teal blue. This is such a pretty blue!!

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows- Purples

Duchess, Pop Culture, & Wisteria

I love all three of these!

Duchess is a matte cool purple.

Pop Culture is a vibrant iridescent lavender purple.

Wisteria is a matte pale purple.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows- Pinks

Shimma Shimma, Cupcake, & Simply Marlena

Shimma Shimma is a metallic champagne. This is such a pretty lid shade!

Cupcake is a matte medium pink. I love adding this one in the crease with a neutral look!

Simply Marlena is a rosey pink with purple undertone and gold flecks.

Foiled Eyeshadows

Makeup Geek’s foiled eyeshadows retail for $10. I think they are amazing and worth the price!

Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows- Neutrals

Starry Eyed, In the Spotlight, Grandstand, & Magic Act

I use all four of these a ton!

Starry Eyed is a light champagne beige with slight pink undertones and a foiled finish pinky-beige champagne.

This is sold out but there is a damaged version for sale for $40 on their website! I’ve heard that you can hardly see anything wrong with their damaged items! The shades included are Artemis, Beaches & Cream, Luna, Cosmopolitan, Sora, Frappe, Insomnia, Mars, & Aphrodite. I thought this was a really nice palette! I absolutely loved the shade Insomnia! The last picture is a close up of it!
