Review & Swatches: Makeup Geek Eyeshadows. Part 3

I have ANOTHER Makeup Geek (MUG) eye shadow review today! I now have over 20 shades! I just want to extend a BIG thank you to Brittany from Makeup Geek who offered to send me another 12 eyeshadows of my choice!! Brittany is so lovely, thank you girl! I absolutely love these colours that I picked out xoxox 

Now, I just want to point out that even though MUG sent me these eyeshadows for free it does NOT mean that my review will all about what the MUG team wants to hear. I don’t think they would want me to write like that either! No, these reviews are all my own opinion 🙂

Ok, now that the disclaimer is out of the way, let’s get started with the review!…

 A metallic silver. It has a gorgeous metallic sheen without being over-the-top, making this a colour that is wearable day and night. 4/5
Bleached Blonde: A shimmery, pale gold. This looks great with blue eyes. I’ve paired it Bada Bing to create a nice day time look. The colour pay off isn’t the greatest unfortunately…compared to most other MUG eyeshadows anyway. 3/5
Vanilla Bean: I love this shade! A lovely, light, buttercream matte eyeshadow. It’s PERFECT for blending out dark eyeshadows and for on the brow bone for those who would rather a matte shadow over a shimmery one like Shimma Shimma. 5/5

Peacock: A matte deep teal blue. Insane pigmentation!! Top marks for that MUG!! To be honest I haven’t really tried this colour out so I haven’t got much to say except that it has GREAT pigmentation and is matte…so many colours are shimmery these days! I will use this colour in a look soon and give it a good test run 🙂 4/5 (for pigmentation)
Mermaid: Metallic teal with gold reflects. Love love love! This colour makes me happy, haha. It is hard to photograph shimmery colours, in real life you can see the gold sheen better and it really does look like a MERMAIDS tail!! Stunning. And AMAZING pigmentation 5/5
Sea Mist: A shimmery turquoise. Again, awesome colour payoff! This is a super pretty shade…would look lovely paired with brown eyeshadows…I shall do a look with this very soon. 4/5

Mango Tango: Peachy coral pink, more on the matte side. I really like this colour! Makes me think of watermelon hehe. Good pigmentation too! I think this would look lovely on blue eyes 🙂 4/5
Cinderella: Pale shimmery pink…this is a very low shimmer colour. I’ve used it a couple times but…I don’t know, I’m just not really sold on this colour. It is pretty but the pigmentation isn’t very good so it doesn’t show up very well on the eyes. 2.5/5
Burlesque: A deep metallic burgundy. I really like this shade. It looks beautiful on my green eyes AND blue eyes! I’ve paired this with Gold Digger and Bada Bing for a nice warm smokey eye. The pigmentation is pretty good as well. I find that with adding other colours and blending, this colour fades away easily so I always just go back and add more at the end. The staying power is good! 4/5

Pixie Dust: 
A shimmery lime green. I had this colour on my wish list for ages so when I was offered some free colours I immediatley added this to my list of 12! I’ve only used it as a liner so far…great pigmentation! I was very impressed with it 🙂 4/5
Manderine: Bright orange with flecks of gold. This too was on my wish list…I HAD to get this one because my aunt really wants me to try out a look on her using this colour, so I would have been in trouble if I didn’t choose this one 😛 I love it though! As you can see, it is very vibrant…I didn’t need really build up the colour when I used it. The only thing  I found was that the potency didn’t last as well as some of the other colours. I find the same thing happens with Razzleberry…the colour stays on all over a primer but the vibrancy fades…so for that reason I will give it a 3.5/5 Great colour otherwise…looks fantastic with brown and blue eyes!!
Neptune: A matte bright blue. This colour is BRIGHT! Potent ha ha. I haven’t used it for a look yet so I’m not sure how well the vibrancy looks so I will give it a 5/5 for pigmentation and texture.

And there you have it. Part 3 of my Makeup Geek review…many more to come I’m sure! Marlena has just released gel liners (one of the shades is YELLOW!) and she has a lipstick line which I’m yet to try and also a bunch more eyeshadows. Ooooh actually, I just remembered, I have already ordered a gel liner so I will be reviewing that when I get it 😀

Have you tried any of these colours? What are you thoughts on them!

Geek love
