MAKEUP GEEK EYE SHADOWS // Here. MAKEUP GEEK TRAVEL PALETTE // Here.
The battery charger for my camera is long lost & gone. So for now, excuse the quality. These are shot with my best friend, also known as my iPhone. But personally I think they turned out extremely gorgeous, considering the circumstances. These beautiful shadows are from Makeup Geek. Makeup Geek is not only one of the most respected independent brands in the blog industry, it’s simply also the best brand in terms of eye shadows on the high street market. But the most awesome part is, that the woman behind this magnificent brand – she’s a youtuber and one of my favourites.
Her name is Marlena and you can subscribe to her channel here. She is everything that a girl boss should be! Kind hearted, hard working, funny & intelligent. She’s also very personal about her brand and it has been an amazing experience to follow her journey. I’d also like to say that the Makeup Geek team kindly gifted me 9 of the shadows and then I went on the MG website to purchase an extra shadow + this amazing palette with a rose gold gunmetal lid, for me to store the pans in.

But let’s get to the review, shall we? First of all, these shadows are in my personal opinion, way better than MAC and the price difference is also quite insane. Don’t get me wrong, I really do like MAC. But for the price and quality of the Makeup Geek shadows, I’d recommend MG over MAC any day. They are hands down my favourite formulation that I have ever used. The price for an individual shadow is amazingly inexpensive. The foiled shadows are $10 and the regular & duochrome shadows are $6. The shadows are so extremely pigmented but very easy to work with. They are buttery and soft – specially the foiled shadows and they will sit on your lid all day long, I kid you not. They are a work of art! Makeup Geek is a US based brand and If you live in Europe or outside America, the shipping price from the U.S can be a little steep and there’s also the chance of getting caught in customs and having to pay duties. In Denmark however, the shipping price was only $10. But if you aren’t fond of taking chances, Beautybay started selling Makeup Geek as well.
