Eyeshadow Pan by Makeup geek! At last I get my hand on these after a few influence by my friends and of course the ever beautiful Jaclyn Hill. She is just an amazing YouTuber that has such an amazing talent. Makeup geek eyeshadow has been in the market for quite sometime but I don't know why I am not interested in it until now. After years of collecting makeup and experimenting on things, I decided to collect single eyeshadow. I started with MAC eyeshadow actually. But then I realize the quality of the shadow is good but just overpriced and just have to stop supporting them for personal reasons. (Don't argue with me on this). I really want an eyeshadow single of my favorite shades. So after a few search and goggling done, I decided on these two shades that is Shimma Shimma & Creme Brule. I pay using PayPal and it takes 3 weeks to arrive. Pretty long. But the shipping charge are not that expensive.
The eyeshadow comes in a flat paper packaging that really look like the MAC ones. The names are stated on the back of the eyeshadow pan. The size are also the same as the Mac Eyeshadow pan. The different between them are that Mac comes with a magnet attach on the back of the eyeshadow pan but Makeup Geek does not. So if you want to store it in the 4 empty refills of the Mac so you need to buy a magnet sheet or something. I am not sure about Z Palette, I think the Z palette it self are a magnet.
I wanted to find a cheap option for the Stila Kitten. The Stila Kitten is RM69 each. Pretty a splurge for me. Some said the Shimma Shimma are a dupe for it. I fell in love with the Stila Kitten after swatching Sabby Prue eyeshadow pallet that she got. It is just an amazing gorgeous color that I think can be wear for everyday and its creamy and just so beautiful. Shimma Shimma to me is pretty similar to Stilla Kitten, its creamy and pigmented as the Stila Kitten but I find that Stilla Kitten has a more warm undertone to it. The Shimma Shimma is more to a cool tone but still it is super gorgeous. I love to use it on my lid and just match it with another neautral matte eyeshadow to warm it up.
The second shade I got is Creme Brule. Describe as a soft medium sand color has a velvety matte finish. I bought this because I want a warm undertone, transaction color for my everyday use. I usually use Cork by Mac but its too deep and too brown. I saw the swatches online that this has a bit of an red-orange tone to it which I find nice. Glad I bought it! I super love this color, its amazingly pretty on my eye and brig that nice hint or warm on my outer lid. Its matte, its creamy, its not chalky and just so pretty ti be blend with any color. I use the Shimma Shimma all over my lid and give a depth effect by contouring my outer lid using the Creme Brule. These eyeshadow stay all day especially when you use a primer underneath.
Overall I could say that Makeup Geek Eyeshadow are worth buying. Especially for you who are starting to build your own eye-shadow pan or simply want a palette for your make-up service collection. The price is half of Mac and other high end brand but the quality is just mind blowing. If you don't know how to shop just go to these shop that is based in Malaysia. They do pre-orders and they can help you buy them, The Fashionette , Makeup_Crime , Buff vanity.
I definitely looking forward to buy more of MUG Eyeshadow. Above are my wishlist! Can't wait to collect them all! More info : http://www.makeupgeek.com/store/
