I am a huge fan of Makeup Geek eyeshadows. I think Marlena (owner of Makeup Geek) is fantastic. She really did a great job creating these.
I have posted previously about my first purchase of MUG shadows.
This post is going to be about the five shadows I received from Phyrra. The colours are;
Galaxy - metallic gunmetalBeaches and Cream – matte peachy beige
Sensuous – a burgundy purple with little fleck of silver
Poolside – bright shimmery teal
Mermaid - metallic teal with flecks of gold
For $5.99 a pan, Makeup Geek eyeshadows are quite affordable for those who want to choose their own colours and create their own palettes. Makeup Geek also offer these shadows in pot form at $7.99 a pop as well as starter sets.
The formulation of these shadows are buttery, pigmented and they blend pretty good. You need to apply these with a gentle hand as they go on quite dark. Beaches and Cream is the perfect match for my skin tone. It just blends away. Galaxy had a teeny bit of fallout. I have to remember to be gentle with this one and not smash my brush in the pan HAHA. I have been wishing for Mermaid. It is not a colour I would normally wear but it is just so freakin’ pretty. So I had to wear it ASAP!
