Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eyeliners (Part 1)

Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eyeliner ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is supposed to be an “ultra creamy” and “ultra pigmented.” They have a smoother, more waxy consistency, so they skim across the skin without tugging or dragging, but the pigmentation varies a lot from shade to shade, though it fell between semi-sheer to semi-opaque in one stroke. They weren’t particularly buildable, as they seemed to push the color around rather than really gradually build it up. They are really, really soft, so use less pressure than you think or else chunks of the eyeliner will break off. They wore between six and seven hours on me before migrating. Their biggest upside is comfort; very creamy and soft, but the downside is weaker pigmentation and wear. As an aside, the price point seems a little high for the brand, given that eyeliners and eyeshadows are (usually) similarly priced, but these are 50% more expensive than the eyeshadows.

The Best Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows + Overview

Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows ($9.99 for 0.06 oz.) are available in a variety of shades. The Foiled Eyeshadow finish is frosted to metallic with a much denser, thicker, and creamier consistency compared to the brand’s traditional powder eyeshadow formula. The biggest downside is that the formula can crease on some, so primer is imperative in those instances.

Makeup Geek x Manny Mua Eyeshadow Palette

Makeup Geek x Manny Mua Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.58 oz.) contains nine eyeshadows in a slim, cardboard palette with mirror on the inside. Three of the nine shades are permanent and existing shades (Beaches & Cream, Cosmopolitan, Frappe) in the Makeup Geek range, while one is a pressed version of one of their loose pigments (Insomnia). Two shades appear to be the Foiled eyeshadow type, which is important to note as the Foiled formula is more expensive to purchase individually ($10.00) than their regular powder formula ($6.00). The eyeshadows are labeled on the back but not on the interior (and they seem to be labeled “underneath” so that if you read it left to right, they appear mislabeled, so think about what eyeshadow is placed directly on top of the label to avoid confusion). Each eyeshadow is full-sized; based on that, the palette contains $62.00 worth of product (7 regular eyeshadows, 2 Foiled eyeshadows).
