★MAKEUP GEEK EYESHADOWS + SWATCHES★



Makeup Geek Eyeshadows
Makeup Geek was created by a fellow YouTuber Marlena who got started making beauty videos and tutorials on her YouTube channel.  She then parlayed that into a very successful makeup line that made it's debut starting with these shadows and has followed with many other wonderful quality products.  Marlena used to use a lot of MAC Cosmetics in her tutorials, so I think her idea was to make a quality shadow with an affordable price tag.  These shadows run $7.99 a pan and come in a variety of colors and finishes.  The pans are magnetic & adhere best to Z-Palettes, which is what is shown in the picture above.  Below are swatches of the colors I own and a direct link to the shadow on the Makeup Geek Website!  These shadows are some of my favorites I own and I highly recommend MUG Shadows, I think they are affordable, blend well and are very pigmented! 



Bling
Frosted slightly warm Ivory
I love bling for a highlight shade and a beautiful inner corner highlight. It also makes a great all over lid color with a darker color in the crease.






Beaches & Cream
Creamy Matte Neutral Beige W/Hint of Peach
Beaches & Cream is a gorgeous peachy shade that makes a beautiful transition color and doesn't overwhelm any look. It's great to blend out crease color & defuse the look.




Peach Smoothie
Light Peach Beige W/Soft Matte Finish
I can't say how much I love this shade! It really warms up the crease and gives such a nice peachy tone to any look.  It's a little darker than the Beaches & Cream and adds more dimension. 




Creme Brûlée
Medium Sand Color W/Soft Matte Finish
This is the darker of the peachy brown shades.  I love pairing this with olives & greens to really bring warmth to the look.  It's a great crease color, but also really darkens up the look.  Very pigmented!

Hipster
Dark sand and light taupe tan with slight shimmer
I love this taupe shade, it's light and works well as a crease color or all over lid color. I have worn this on my lid with Creme Brulee in my crease & it's a stunning look!

Preppy
Matte khaki brown
Such a unique shade, it's almost a camel brown color with a bit of yellow orange in it.  It doesn't look like it would be much, but it is amazing to blend out the crease and just adds such a great tone to any look.






Homecoming
Medium brown with gold shimmer
Gorgeous color and the sheen that comes across is beautiful on the eye! I love this as an all over lid color.





Taupe Notch
Taupe
Beautiful Taupe color that isn't too overpowering.  It's very true taupe with a nice sheen.




Prom Night
Pale Purple W/Hints of Grey Shimmery Finish
One of my favorite colors because it is such a pale purple grey and I love tones that have that slight purple tone to them because I think they are so flattering to Green/Blue eyes.




Mocha
Deep matte brown
Mocha makes a great outter corner color and provides depth while darkening up the crease.

Metallic bronze
This is a beyond stunning shade! I love the sheen to it and it is so smooth & buttery. One swipe of this eyeshadow provides full pigmentation.



Cocoa Bear
Matte reddish brown
This is very close to MAC Brown Script. It's a very warm, reddish toned Brown and it applies so smoothly with such rich pigmentation.




Unexpected
Matte Pale Pink Brown
I can't say enough about this color. It's such a gorgeous matte purple shade.  It says it's a Pink Brown, but it's more mauve toned to me.  I love this in the crease or all over the lid! This also pairs beautifully with Homecoming & Prom Night!




Twilight
Pale Shimmery Muted Purple
Another stunning shade, I just love Purples, can you tell? This is a must have and is very smooth & buttery.  





Last Dance
Satin medium to deep plummy brown
This has that gorgeous almost Cranberry sheen to it.  Such a great color coming into Fall, but can be worn anytime.  I have paired this with Unexpected in the crease and it's such such a warm & beautiful eye!





Sensuous
Shimmery Purple with Flecks of Silver
This is a beautiful & unique shade. It's almost what I wish Trax from MAC would be like.  This is smooth and buttery and just applies beautifully.



Fairytale
Pale Matte Lavender
This shade is so unique because it's very difficult to find a pigmented Matte lavender eyeshadow that isn't powdery and translates to this color on the eye.  I LOVE this shade & I think it's a must have!



Purple Rain
Matte True Purple
Beautiful Matte purple that is very pigmented and blends beautifully.






Drama Queen
A densely dark purple with a shimmery finish
Such an intense purple shade with a gorgeous shimmer sheen to it.  Again, this shade applies very smoothly and the sheen is very apparent!




Mercury
Metallic Medium Silver
Beautiful mid-tone Silver that pairs beautifully with Stealth.


Stealth
Matte True Grey
I love this Grey because it's hard to find a Grey that doesn't lean too blue on me.  This one remains Grey and is very pigmented & applies smoothly.
