Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows Review!

3/22/2015 04:30:00 PM

Hey beauties!

Last week I posted my Makeup Geek Haul and I've tested all of them for you for over 7+ hours each! 

Showtime, Mesmerized, In the spotlight, Grandstand, Magic act
Jester, Flame thrower, Houdini, Caitlin rose, Center stage
When I first swatched these, I noticed the last three blue and purple shades really didn't swatch well. I was hoping they would work better on the eyes but sadly they didn't. Keep in mind I used all of these without a primer to truly test out the pigmentation and longevity of these shadows. By far the best shade was Flame thrower and generally the top row + Flamethrower were the best! I am a bit dissapointed with the quality of these shadows since they swatch SO BEAUTIFULLY with my fingers but they don't come out that pigmented using a brush. You definitely need to pack it on if you want the full on foiled effect or you would need to spray your brush to get the look. I do actually kind of like the fact that they don't come out as pigmented on the eyes as they do swatched since they become quite wearable for the day time!

 These blend like a dream too! I find I have very little to no fall out when I use these and they go very well together! If I have to recommend a few shades I'd go with Flame Thrower, Mesmerized and Grandstand. I wouldn't personally choose the blue-toned shades since they were the most dissapointed shades. 

Overall, I wouldn't recommend getting the full set (unless you really want to try all of them out for yourself!) but instead choose a few shades to try out instead! I would give them a 3.5/5 as a set but for the most part, the shades I loved get a 4/5! 


What do you think of the Makeup Geek Foiled shadows? Would you try them out? Tell me in the comments below!

  1. I absolutely love the swatches! 😍 I feel like because they're not as pigmented on the brush I would probably apply them with my finger if I wanted them to be intense. But wow they look beautiful. Great review, love

  2. The thing is, the blue and purple shades didn't even swatch well and I tried with my finger but had no luck :( but I still love a lot of the shades! I'm glad you enjoyed xx

  3. I fell like makeup geek (and most products that youtubers tend to rave about) are very over played. There are always better selections out there at a very affordable cost.

  4. I think for the shades that were pigmented they were SO pigmented like the most pigmented eyeshadows I've used, however the others were a fail. I do agree about the hype given to products because of youtubers.
