Hi there, beauties:)
Today, I received a glorious package in the mail, full of Makeup Geek goodness that I can’t wait to show you all. I’ve never used any of their products before, so I am really excited to try them out! Let’s get to swatching!:)
First, I picked out Barcelona Beach, because I am obsessed with cool-toned, matte browns and have been going through withdrawals since I ran out of Urban Decay’s Tease in my Naked 2 Palette. I think this will be a great dupe for that shade! This color is flattering on my skin tone is the perfect crease color!
Next, I HAD to pick up the shade that EVERYONE talks about… Peach Smoothie! This is a shade used religiously by some of my favorite YouTubers, so needed to try it myself. I must say, after swatching it on my hand, I am already beginning to fall in love with this shadow… It is SO. PIGMENTED. I’m sure it will be an amazing transition color and can’t wait to test it on my eyes!
Homecoming is a beautiful, shimmery brown shade with a slight purple-ish tint to it. I am OBSESSED with this color. I have heard so many amazing things about this shadow and I know that I will be wearing it all the time!
Cocoa Bear is another very popular shade that I have seen used many, MANY times by YouTubers such as Jaclyn Hill. I’ve always thought this shade looked so beautiful and I was missing a warm, brown, matte shade in my collection. This fixes that problem!
Lastly, I had to try out one of Makeup Geek’s Renowned Blushes! I decided to go for Romance, since peach-y, shimmery blushes are my LIFE. This blush looks almost like a warmer highlight shade when swatched on my hand and I’m really looking forward to seeing it on my face!
I picked out a medium-sized, black Z palette to put my shadows and blush in. It comes with a bunch of magnets so that you can de-pot anything that you want and have it conveniently stored! I am really excited to de-clutter my makeup collection and start putting all of my favorite things in this little palette to save space (and sanity)!
My first impression of these products is that they are extremely pigmented and creamy. I am really impressed with the formula and super excited to try them out on my face! I have heard that these shadows are better than MAC -and for only a third of the price! These eyeshadows cost $5.99 and the blushes cost $9.99. I am really impressed with the quality of these products and how affordable they are!
Thanks so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed! Have you tried any Makeup Geek products? If so, what do you think of them? Are the shadows dupes for MAC in your opinion?
