Makeup Geek Review & Swatches

Makeup Geek Review & Swatches

Hi guys,

If you remember my huge Makeup Geek Haul (if not, check HERE), I am doing an updated post on the review of all products with swatches.

Starting with the Sparklers, these are loose glitter pigments.

  • A sparkle beyond compare, Makeup Geek Sparklers go where no cosmetics company has gone before! Loose, reflective particles create a glitter-like effect that is out of this world.
  • For maximum impact, Sparklers are best applied with an eye-safe cosmetics adhesive.

Duochrome and beautiful, the shades are very unique. If you spray some setting spray and use them, they almost come out as pigmented shadows without the glitter texture. They are very multi purpose and I do recommend them.

Shades seen here are..

Makeup Geek Review & Swatches

L-R: Stargazer, Zodiac, Solstice

Solstice is a pista green with silver shimmer

Zodiac is a sky blue with pink and purple shimmer

Stargazer is a light champagne white with gold shimmer

Zodiac and Stargazer are to be discontinued soon, so if you are interested in them, buy soon!

Coming to the Full Spectrum Eyeliner Pencils, these are super creamy and pigmented! And again, some unique and pretty shades. They glide on like butter and stay put whole day. I even use them on my waterline or on the upper lashline or as a eyeshadow base.

Price: $9 each (Buy HERE)

Cobalt is a bright denim blue

Mint is pastel mint green

Orchid is a bright orchid purple

Price: $9 each (Buy HERE)

L-R; Mint, Orchid, Cobalt

I highly recommend them, especially the nude for the waterline.

Next the powder blushes, I have Romance and Spellbound

Price: $10 each (Buy HERE)

The pan size of 4.25g is huge, these are highly pigmented and totally worth the price.

Spellbound is a matte peachy pink

Romance is a peachy coral gold, a famous NARS Orgasm dupe.

Romance, Spellbound

Coming to the contouring powders, I have Complicated and Infidelity. I was highly impressed by the colours, this is the first company I see coming with proper cool toned contour powders and for different skin tones.

Price: $10 each (Buy HERE)

Complicated is for cool medium and Infidelity is for cool fair. I usually use Complicated, but if I want a very sharp contour, then I may use Infidelity or mix the two.

I love how these gives perfectly defined and chiseled cheekbones. Cool toned powders work perfectly for creating shadows.

Again super pigmented and you need just a tiny wee bit, these huge pans are going to last forever. Very economical.

Talking about my favourite now, eyeshadows. Let’s start with something that blew my mind! The foiled eyeshadows!

I have never seen such pigment with any eyeshadow in any brand ever! These are beautiful, gorgeous and I can stare at them whole day.

Price: $10 each (Buy HERE)

I have the shades In The Spotlight, Grandstand, Starry Eyed, Magic Act, Day Dreamer.

Magic Act is a muted medium gold. This will work beautiful with Indian outfits.

Day dreamer is a cool toned light lilac

Grandstand is a medium rose gold, again beautiful with Indian wear.

L-R: Ritzy, In The Spotlight, Starry Eyed

Ritzy is a warm reddish brown with green and gold duochrome reflects, most unique shade I have ever seen! (It is a normal duochrome, not foiled. Sorry for the confusion, this one is $6)

In The Spotlight is soft coral pink, it works as a center shadow with numerous looks!

Starry Eyed is champagne pinky beige

And their normal eye shadows, which are $6 each and a total value for money! These are absolute must haves.

Price: $6 each (Buy HERE)

I have

L-R: Frappe, Cocoa Bear, Creme Brulee, Mocha, Shimma Shimma

Frappe is a medium brown
Cocoa Bear is a reddish brown
Creme Brulee is a soft peachy brown
Mocha is a deep matte brown
Shimma Shimma is a metallic champagne

Frappe, Cocoa Bear and Creme Brulee are great transition shades for the crease to layer up one by one or blend two shadows together. Mocha is a nice outer corner shade to deepen the colours on the outer V and Shimma Shimma is a good inner corner/highlight shade or the center shadow.

Cosmopolitan is a rose gold with gold shimmer
Bitten is a matte berry maroon
Corrupt is an intense matte charcoal black! The most pigmented black shadow ever, in any brand!

I have picked these shades out of the number of shades they have, after watching numerous videos and seeing a lot of blogs. These are like the absolute must haves if you planning to place an order on makeupgeek.com

All Makeup Geek products are animal friendly, paraben and talc free and made in USA. They are super affordable for the price and I highly recommend them. For that price and quality, they are a steal!
