FORMULA:

These eyeshadows really are amazing! Especially for the price you get an amazing quality.
The shimmer and duochrome eyeshadows are very nicely pigmented and creamy.
But the mattes are a little inconsistent. Some of them are very creamy and pigmented but some of them are dryer and have less pigmentation. And the eyeshadows that are dryer can have quite some fall-out, too.
But overall the mattes are really nice to work with no matter if they are dry or creamy. They blend very well.
However the foiled eyeshadows are INCREDIBLE! They are soooo foiled! They are creamy and amazingly pigmented. If you have very oily eyelids they might crease a little but if you apply some glitter glue underneath (e.g. the NYX glitter primer) they’ll last well.
The foiled eyeshadows from Makeup Geek are hands down my favorite foiled eyeshadow formula I’ve ever tried!!

PROS:

  • Affordable
  • Overall great quality
  • Foiled eyeshadows are incredible

CONS:

  • Inconsistent formula within the matte eyeshadows

FINAL THOUGHTS:

I definitely recommend checking out the eyeshadows from Makeup Geek.

Especially the foiled eyeshadows if you like very metallic-looking eyeshadows.

The quality overall is great. Only some of the mattes are a little dry. But still all of them work beautifully.

That is so nice of you! Thank you!
I think my favorite part about makeup is eyeshadow and that‘s probably why I get more and more 😀
