Makeup geek eyeshadow swatches and review

Si vous me suivez sur Instagram, vous savez que j'ai récemment découvert les fards à paupière de la marque Makeup Geek Cosmetics . Ils sont de loin mes préférés de toute ma collection. Ils sont super pigmentés, pas crayeux, pas donnés mais la moitié du prix d'un fard Mac.
Voici quelques crèmes et marrons que j'ai mis côte à côte pour que vous puissiez comparer les teintes. Certaines fois, les différences sont subtiles mais je vous promets, ils sont tous différents!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I recently discovered Makeup Geek Cosmetics eyeshadows and how much I love them. They are by far my favorite shadows of my entire collection. I bought so many of them and here are some pictures of some of my brown and cream ones.
You can see, some of them are quite close but they are all different I swear!

Peach Smoothie: light beige peach with a matte finish.
So pigmented, this is the perfect base or blending eyeshadow.

Crème brulée: Light to medium brown with a matte finish.
Great all over the lid and perfect for transition or blending. Nice shade for everyday use.

Frappe: Medium warm brown with reddish undertone.
Great all over the lid and perfect for transition or blending. Nice shade for everyday use.
I LOVE this one because it is warmer than Crème brulée or Latte, but lighter than Cocoa bear.

Latte: Medium brown more on a cool side with a matte finish.
Great all over the lid and perfect for transition or blending. Nice shade for everyday use, perfect neutral shade.

Cocoa bear: Rich warm reddish brown, medium to dark brown, matte finish
It gives you the most beautiful warm look. I wear this one almost everyday since I purchased it!

Brown sugar: Rich warm brown with a satin finish.
It is the little brother of Cocoa bear, it has a subtle sheen to it.

Mocha: Dark brown with a matte finish.
Love it for the lower lash line and the outer V.

Bada bing: Dark brown with gold flecks in it but mostly matte.
Lower lash line go to, the glitters are very very fine, you can't really see the flecks. Perfect to darken the outer V and smokey looks.

You can see, they are all super pigmented and not chalky or powdery at all. If I had to pick a neutral palette, I would choose them again and again.

I wanted to show you some side by site pictures because it is not easy to pick the right shade as colors on the website are not accurate.

Makeup geek eyeshadow swatches: corrupt, nautica, ocean breeze, glass slipper, graphite


For summer, I love vivid colors, this is almost the only period of the year where I wear these type of shades. I love a nice deep blue lower lash line or even teal and turquoise.

The black eyeshadow, Corrupt from Makeup geek is one of the darkest black I have ever seen, LOVE it even if it is a bit powdery. The gray one is also a must have, I like mix silver and black for a sexy smokey look. 
These eyeshadows are so creamy and pigmented, I love how colorful are the swatches. Ocean breeze is now one of my all time favorite eyeshadow of my collection so it is unique!

Corrupt : deep black matte 
Nautica : dark blue, satin finish
Ocean Breeze : dark teal, satin to shimmery finish
Glass slipper : turquoise, satin to shimmery finish
Graphite: cool gray, shimmery finish

Makeup Greek eyeshadows: some purple staples


Makeup geek eyeshadow swatches: drama queen, sensuous, unextected, twilight, prom night


I rarely wear colorful looks, I always stick to my neutrals but a good purple is a staple!
I love wearable purples of course (mostly) because you can use them for your everyday life, at the office or at school, I always go for shades I can wear on a regular base.

These are some of my favorites from Makeup Geek.


Drama queen : dark eggplant with some silver flecks, almost matte finish.
Sensuous : medium purple with fine glitters, satin / shimmery finish.
Unexpected : matte light purple. So beautiful for transition or crease area.
Twilight : the satin version of Unexpected.
Prom night: purple silver taupe , the perfect dupe for Satin taupe from Mac, shimmery finish. Love to use it on its own. A nice neutral with a twist eyeshadow.
