COMPLETE REVIEW: Makeup Geek Foiled Shadows: Part-1

 

Makeup Geek is a relatively new and one of the rising brands. It’s adored by many beauty enthusiasts and most of them rave about the FOILED eyeshadows.

What is a FOILED eyeshadow you may ask….

These are intensely pigmented opaque eyeshadows with metallic finish and they have a texture between a powder shadow and a cream shadow.

So how pigmented and effective they actually are?

I have reviewed each and every eyeshadow from their collection WITHOUT any primer or base underneath to show all of you their true quality. Keep on reading to know more about these products.

PRICE & AVAILABILITY:

Each retails for $9.99 and can be found on Makeup Geek website.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

All the foiled shadows come in separate pans. You can buy a Z palette like this to store your eyeshadows (pictured below). Makeup Geek has released 20 eyeshadows so far. For convenience, I have divided these shadows into color families so that it remains organized.
