MAKEUP GEEK | FOILED SHADOWS

The shades from left to right: Showtime, Flame Thrower, Grandstand, Center Stage & Houdini
 
I don't think Makeup Geek shadows have gone unnoticed by anyone in the makeup world because they have been everywhere on both Youtube and Instagram. After having actually swatched them, I now fully understand the epicness of the Makeup Geek Foiled Shadows. Please, let's just start by staring at these incredibly beautiful shadows? I've been wanting to try the Makeup Geek shadows for a while now, both their normal shadows and their foiled ones. But I've never really gotten around to it until now that I saw that Beautybay also had started to sell Dose of Colors liquid lipsticks (Yes, you can look forward to a review on those soon too!) so I just new I had to order me some goodies from them. I started by getting the foiled shadows and boy do I NOT regret it for one second. These shadows are life (insert praying emoji).
 
Price: They are cheap for the quality and pigmentation that you're getting so I can't complain about the price. The price is actually pretty much amazing. No complaints there. The foiled shadows cost about 95 SEK per shadow. It's probably cheaper to buy them off the Makeup Geek official website but I really wanted those Dose of Colors liquid lipsticks!
 
Pigmentation: As these are foiled shadows they are very pigmented, and I really mean it when I say VERY pigmented. Because they are so pigmented I was expecting a lot of fallout, but I didn't see any fallout when using them. So that's a big plus. However, I found that the blue shade in 'Center Stage' wasn't as pigmented as I expected it would be. Looking at it in the pan you think it's going to be the most pigmented blue color ever but it's not as pigmented as the other shades unfortunately. Don't get me wrong, it's pigmented, it's just not on the same level as the other shades.

Consistency: These shadows are so creamy and buttery it's almost ridiculous. They are so soft and finely milled you won't have to worry about chunks of glitter causing fallout or patchiness. Just to give you an example of how soft and buttery they are, the shade 'Houdini' came totally smashed and broken, but I fixed it by using my finger to press the product into the pan. Now it's like new. Amazing.
 
Longevity: These eyeshadows will stay put, and they still look as good by the end of the night as they did when I applied it before leaving my house hours before. I've never used them without some kind of primer or base underneath so I can't say if they stay on as well on their own, but with a primer or base underneath they will stay on your lids until you choose wash them off and they won't crease.
 
Pros:
- Smooth and buttery consistency
- Cheap
- Very Pigmented
- You can create your own custom palette with the shades you want as you buy them in the pan.
- Lasts all day/night
- No fallout
 
Cons:
- Can't find a one :)

FAVORITE BUYS OF FEBRUARY 2016

My wallet hates me at the moment, this past week I've been really splurging but I've been a really good girl up until now, saving and not spending, but then life happened and what's a girl supposed to do? Kat von D Beauty just released here in Sweden on February 16th, this was the day after the tickets to the Beyoncé Formation World Tour tickets went on sale, plus it was Valentines the day before that and I had to show myself some love by getting me a new MK bag. And if that wasn't enough, I might have placed and order on Beautybay for some Makeup Geek foiled shadows and some Dose of Colors Liquid Lipsticks. Yes... I'm eating noodles for the rest of the month. Fortunately it's only five days left until payday 🙌🏼
