So I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about Makeup Geek, with a recent MannyMUA collaboration, as well as a highlighter palette collaboration with Kathleen Lights. Makeup Geek was kind enough to send me over a few products to try, and it’s safe to say that I’m obsessed. Below are some photos and swatches, but I’d like to focus on a few things. Firstly, holy hell the packaging is adorable. The little boxes with metallic rose gold are super cute, and then the product’s actual packaging is also really beautiful and high quality.
The compacts the blush and contour powder come in are metallic and really beautiful. They feel sturdy and look great, and are some of the cutest packaging I’ve seen in a long while. I’d also like to mention how great the contour powder is. I’m using Infidelity, a fair cool toned shade that works incredibly well with my skin, blends beautifully and looks like natural shadows in the skin. I like to work with a flat topped buffing brush and buff it into the hollows of my cheekbones. Then, I highlight the top of my cheekbones, and my jawline, and it works great. I can’t wait to try more of the face powder, specifically more blushes, since I think that contour color is the perfect one for me. In an upcoming #MOTD, I’ll show how great it comes out, so stay tuned.
I also love the eyeshadow pans. They’re mega pigmented, blend easily, and look great. Again, in an upcoming #MOTD, I’ll show a look I created with Shimma Shimma, Cocoa Bear, and Creme Brulee. I cannot wait to try more shadows, specifically more darker, red based shades for fall, and I also am DYING for the foiled and duochrome shades.
Finally, I’d like to shoutout the pencil liner in Obsidian. It’s incredibly creamy, long lasting, and essentially glides on. I usually only use liquid eyeliner for a winged cat eye look, but I tried this, and it lasted all day, as though it was waterproof, even though it’s not. At the end of the day, it came off incredibly easy with makeup remover wipes, and I can’t say enough good things about the formula.
I can’t wait to try more from Makeup Geek, it’s quickly becoming a favorite. Affordable, high quality products in great shades with awesome customer service will always win my vote.
