Makeup Geek Confection, Bedrock, Enchanted Forest, Concrete Jungle, Vintage, Eyeshadows

Makeup Geek Confection Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “blush pink with very subtle gray undertones and a matte finish.” It’s a pale, light pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It was soft but powdery, and it accentuated the texture of my lid and clung to it in patches, which made the area look drier. It lasted for six and a half hours.

Makeup Geek Sorbet, Mirage, Morocco, Cherry Cola, Americano Eyeshadows

Makeup Geek Sorbet Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “pastel melon pink with a matte finish.” It’s a light, pinky-peach with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, but the texture was powdery and dry, and it looked dry, flaky, and chalky on my lid. Chalkiness could just be due to my skin tone, but it made my lid look like it was so dry that it was flaking (but in reality, it wasn’t flaking at all!). It applied unevenly and was quick to crease after six and a half hours. Too Faced Cashew Chew (P, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Dior Golden Shock #4 (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Smashbox Naked (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Popcorn Strand (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty In the Pink #1 (LE) is lighter (95% similar).

Makeup Geek Insomnia Pigment ($12.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “red-brown base with blue reflects.” It’s a warm, coppery-red base with bluish-teal shift. It’s one of the more common duochromes that you’ll find across brands (sometimes they lean blue, sometimes they lean green). The texture is smoother than the original iteration of this shade was, and it had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation applied dry but was more opaque damp.
