MY THOUGHTS:

  • The shadows are true to their claim. Intense, true to the pan colors which will bring life to any makeup look.
  • You can use the shadows without any primer and get the great color payoff.
  • Due to the vibrancy of these colors, you may want to skip it for conservative office-environments.
  • If you are experiencing fallouts, you can do your under eye concealing part afterwards the eye makeup.
  • If you feel that the color is not translating  so vibrantly on eyes, use your fingers to gently pat the shadows on lids.

IN A NUTSHELL:

In my opinion, these shadows are a must-have item in your makeup collection. It will not lower your expectations….rather these will make you “spoiled”!

 

P.S.- I was not sponsored by Makeup Geek cosmetics to do these articles. I bought and used these products and loved it….and this is a way to show that 🙂

  1. Was thinking of getting some for myself.. which one do you think is a must-have color?

    • Tell me first, Are you a neutral lover? or do you want to experiment with bold colors?

      • Hey, I just wanted to ask you same question which colors you use most? Sometimes you think that you would use certain colors but in day to day life you don’t even touch them. For now I have Whimsical, I want to buy 4 more: Fortune Teller, in the spotlight, fantasy and 1 more, really can’t decide which and need your advice because you already used them for a while.

        • Hey Irina! My most used colors are the neutral ones and from the colored bunch- Houdini and Center Stage. For day to day life, the foiled shadows are a bit too much. But for occasions the colors look so pretty! If you are looking for new colors, you can try Houdini or Center Stage. I just love their deep jewel tones.
