Hello Beautiful Ladies,
Today I bring you the review of eye shadows from Makeup Geek. Makeup Geek is an American Company which was started by Marlena Stell, who was a Youtuber & Blogger herself took a step forward in 2009 and started her own brand of eye shadows and then she never looked back.
I will link her website and YouTube channel links by the end of the review.
You can see the tutorials of eye makeup looks, new launches, limited editions and everything in their official website. They have taken this step to teach and educate people to do their own makeup with ease and fun. They also ship the products worldwide and there is no need to worry about not finding the product. They have a variety of ranges of eye shadows, pigments, blushes, contours, concealers & tools.
Their eye shadows are sold in single pans and they have matte finish shadows, Duochrome, glitters, sparklers & foiled eye shadows. I have picked up their basic matte to creamy finish eye shadows in four shades. You can make your own customized palettes by placing these pans in the empty Z-palettes. You can buy Z palettes from them.
Price: $6 per pan
The price is very economical and affordable. They are the dupes of most of the MAC pans and MAC one’s cost $16 each. So, we can see they are less than half the price of Mac shadows.
Quantity: Each pan contains 1.8 grams of product.
The shades I have picked up are:
Let’s talk about each shade:
Shades from left to right with out flash(Frappe, Mocha, Bitten, Americano)
Shades from left to right with flash(Frappe, Mocha, Bitten, Americano)
FRAPPE: It is a medium maple brown color shade which have medium pigmentation but it can be builded up, the texture is matte to satin and glides on the skin really easy and does not smudge or budge. The pigmentation is improved if we apply an eye shadow base underneath it. This is the lightest shade of the four shades that which I have picked. It can used as a brown shadow for lighter skin tones, for medium to darker skin tones it can be used as a transition shade. I love to use this as a transition shade. MAC Indie Spirit is almost the dupe of frappe.
MOCHA: It is a deep brown color, which has very deep pigmentation, the texture is matte and it is not at all powdery. This shade suits all skin tones, I use this to intensify my crease area when I go for a cut crease look or I use it as a transition shades when i have deposited black and deeper shade in the outer V of the eye. Blends in so well and MAC Clove is the dupe for this shade, it is less pigmented than Mocha but it can be buided up.
BITTEN: It is a deep maroonish red shade, the color pay off is amazingly pigmented. I love going bold on eyes sometimes then this is my pick. It totally lifts the look of the eyes and gives an intense look. Makeup geek describes this shade to be best suited for Dracula, Vampire & Werewolf looks and that is so true 😉 It has matte creamy texture, helps intensify the crease or the inner V and outer V and in the center you can go for golden shimmer. Suits all skin tones, my favourite shade of all the four shades. MAC Everyone’s Darling and Color Pop Beverly are perfect dupes for this shade.
AMERICANO: It is a very dark brown shade with a bit of purple undertones, it is darker than mocha and suits all skin types. It has a matte texture, glides on smoothly, intense color pigmentation, easily blendable and MAC Black plum is the dupe for this shade. This can be used for intense, dark smokey eye and for transition blending as well. One of my favourite shade.
