Makeup geek eyeshadows & swatches

In the past year, I have been adventuring into the world of eyeshadows. Before I would do the basic neutral eye or when I was in school (not familiar with the blending technique) and would overuse the black eyeshadow. Recently I have been trying to explore more
colourful eyeshadows while doing so I stumbled across the much raved about makeup geek eyeshadows. I must say these are definitely worth the hype! They are so pigmented, buttery and easily blendable. You are able to find the makeup geek range on beauty bay, the eyeshadows per pan cost 5.50. I also recommend purchasing a Z palette, this will allow you to keep your eyeshadow pans securely.

Below are a few of my favourite eyeshadows along with swatches.

From left to right ( prom night, mermaid, blacklight, drama queen, typhoon, shimma shimma, burlesque, houdini )

Prom night

This eyeshadow is described as "pale purple with hints of grey", this is a shimmery shade and the consistency is very creamy and buttery. This is great for all over the eyelid and combined with drama queen and sensuous can create a lovely smokey purple eye.

I use this eyeshadow whenever I am feeling adventurous, I absolutely love how vibrant and colourful this shade is. The name is definitely fitting when I picture a mermaid this colour comes to mind. It is described as " metallic teal with reflects gold". This shadow is a light blue with green/silver flecks.


I love this eyeshadow, it was one of my first makeup geek eyeshadows and has become one of my favourites. This shade is described as " electric purple base with icy blue reflects". I would describe this colour as a light purple with a silvery blue shimmer.

Drama queen
This eyeshadow is described as " a densely dark purple with a shimmery finish". This shadow is a deep purple with gold reflects and is great to darken the corner of the crease, which will make the crease appear more defined. 

If you are looking for a very pigmented green eyeshadow then look no further, this emerald durochrome shadow is so beautiful and the gold flecks along with the shimmer allow for a great night out look. This eyeshadow is described as " a deep teal base with green and gold reflects".

Shimma Shimma
This eyeshadow is a must have for every makeup kit, it is described as "metallic champagne". Shimma Shimma is a very buttery and pigmented highlighter. I use this for the corner of my eye, on my cupid bow or as a brow highlighter. What is great about this eyeshadow is that it is very versatile and you are also able to use it as an all over highlighter.


Burlesque is described as "Metalic muted burgundy with warm undertones". This year has seen the rise of the red eyeshadow looks and I couldn't be happier. This is a beautiful dark plum shade with shimmer reflects, place this all over the eyelid and buffer to create a simple but effective eye look.


Ok last but not least we have houdini, this eyeshadow is described as a "Deep emerald teal green with a foiled finish". Although the foiled makeup geek eyeshadows are a little more expensive than the usual shadows, it is however definitely worth the price. I still can not get over how pigmented this shade is and I haven't even hit pan yet but have already restocked this eyeshadow.
