Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Review + Mac Dupes!!!

As you guys probably know, I love my makeup geek eyeshadows!! I have 'm all. I thought I would dedicate this post to these gorgeous eyeshadows and share my thoughts, swatches and Mac dupes!! 

As some of you might know I use my Makeup Geek eyeshadows loads in tutorials. I do own Mac and Urban Decay eyeshadows but I tend to grab these faster. You will learn why if you read on!

Makeup Geek has a very nice range of colours. I really love neutrals so I've put all of my neutrals in one palette (My better version of the naked palette! :P) and my more color colors in another palette. I really adore these palettes and you'l find me grabbing these everytime I use eyeshadows, even if its just to admire and swatch. Here are some pictures of all the Makeup Geek Eyeshadows. Yes, I have them all! Some I bought myself and some were sent to me..

The Makeup Geek eyeshadows have the same size as Mac eyeshadows so they will fit perfectly in a Mac palette. I love the label on the back.. Just simple, written in a nice font and as you can see the letter size is bigger than the Mac letters.

Without a primer or base!

The eyeshadows go on very easy without feeling chalky and have great color payoff! These are high quality eyeshadows without the high quality price. I just want to mention the black eyeshadow they have- Corrupt-  is the blackest of black I've ever seen! You just have to rest your finger on the eyeshadow and you will see how much pigment comes off and how really really dark it is! Best black ever!

Even though they have amazing pigmentation, I recommend using an eyeprimer at all times when using eyeshadows becaus they will make your eyeshadows stay on all day.

It's said before :"A great brand, that prices fairly at the highest quality you can get!"
These sell for $5,99 each! You just cant go wrong!
You can get them at Www.Makeupgeek.com


Left: Mac Soba Right: Makeup Geek Preppy

Soba has a beautiful golden sheen and Preppy is basically just matte

Left: Mac Tempting Right: Makeup Geek Pretentious

I might say that Pretentious is a tad lighter but not really noticeable 

Left: Mac Deep Truth Right: Makeup Geek Nautica

Again Nautica is a tad bit lighter

Left: Mac Expensive Pink Right: Makeup Geek Cosmopolitan

Expensive Pink is more on the pink side and Cosmopolitan more on the Peachy/orangy side but its not very noticiable

Left: Mac Satin Taupe, Right: Mac Prom night

I would say spot on!

Left: Mac Brown Script Right: Makeup Geek Cocoa Bear

These are spot on too!

That was it!  hope you guys found this helpful if you have any questions feel free to comment or just leave a comment sharing your thoughts on this post
Till next time In sha allah!

  1. What are the finger swatched names? (:

    1. Drama Queen, Gold Digger, Cosmopolitan and Poolside :D

  2. Great post :) Can you please do a post with all the swatches for the MUG eyeshadows?

  3. I really appreciate your taking the time to swatch all these colors. :)

  4. The color of coco bear is exactly the same. However, I can see that brown script looks like it went on much more evenly. Too bad it got discontinued. Coco bear it is, I guess. Thanks.
