Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Swatches ♡



About a week or so ago I posted a photo of this neutral Makeup Geek palette on Instagram. I have seriously gotten SOO many questions regarding the shades I have in this & you all requested swatches on all the shades, as promised I have swatched and named them all!

First let me talk to you  a little bit about these eye shadows. Anybody who knows me, follows me on Instagram or watches my YouTube videos knows just how much I LOVE Makeup Geek! Not just their shadows but all of their products in general are amazeballs! It’s very hard for me to love eyeshadow. I’ve tried a lot of brands & most are either not pigmented enough for my liking or they are really chalky & don’t blend. But when I discovered Makeup Geek, almost 2 years ago, I most certainly never looked back! The Pigmentation is 100/100 they blend smoothly, are not chalky & theres an amazing variety of finishes; from matte to shimmer to satin.. everything you could desire in an eyeshadow is right here! I easily grab for these so much more than my MAC other high end brands. The best part is, they’re extremely affordable. Each eyeshadow costs only $5.99.. I know crazy right?! It’s not just the products that make this brand so amazing to me, but the amazing people behind it. Marlena & her team are seriously some of the most genuine people I have had the pleasure of meeting. The customer service is like no other I have experienced. I’ve had issues with placing orders in the past, all I did was email & they helped me out so much from there, always so prompt with their replies, I’ve never had a bad experience.

Now onto the palette! The palette I keep these shadows in is the Extra Large Z Palette in Black it holds 35 eyeshadows perfectly. Easy to clean & maintain, that’s why we get black the mess is less noticeable haha. For the names of all the shades in this palette, refer to the pictures below, all shades are in order L-R

I know I’ve listed Cupcake & Moondust twice, I didn’t realise I had doubles until after the swatches! I also thought I’d add swatches of my colour palette (all by Makeup Geek), for all my makeup lovers who want to add a bit off colour to their collection/kit.

I didn’t use a base for any of these swatches. Just pure pigment on my clean arm. I took all of these photos with my Canon EOS700D & in front of a ring light. As you can see they’re extremely pigmented & there is a great number of different finishes!

I hope you enjoyed reading as much as I enjoyed writing, expect more swatches & reviews coming soon!

Much Love ♡

  1. This has been the most detailed blog post I have read on these Heidi I LOVE that you have started a blog!!! I can’t wait to see more xxx

  2. I noticed that cupcake and moondust were listed twice. Is that because one is wet and other dry or they other colors/typo?

    Thank you for doing this. I saw the post you had on IG and have been waiting for the breakdown. I will be buying each of these shades!

  3. Somehow managed to stumble across your YouTube channel after seeing it linked on Twitter & I’m addicted. You’re super talented! So glad you joined the blogging world. haha.

    Seen you using these shadows in your vids. I’d never heard of Makeup Geek before but I’m definitely gonna look in to making a few purchases. The pigmentation is unreal!
