Makeup Geek Corrupt Eyeshadow
Makeup Geek Corrupt Eyeshadow

Makeup Geek Corrupt Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as an “intense matte black with very subtle sparkle.” It’s a deep, dark, intense black with a mostly matte finish–there is a very, very fine multi-colored sparkle, but it’s really not visible when you apply and blend out the product. It had nice pigmentation, and it wore well for eight and a half hours. Wet ‘n’ Wild Three’s a Party #3 (LE) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Mod #2 (P) is more shimmery. MAC Smokeluxe #5 (P) is similar. theBalm Serious (P, $16.00) is totally matte. Sugarpill Bulletproof (P, $12.00) is fully matte. Urban Decay Blackout (P, $18.00) is also fully matte. NARS Night Breed (LE, $24.00) has more sparkle. MAC Carbon (P, $15.00) is all matte, warmer in tone. Illamasqua Zeitgeist (P, $25.50) is more shimmery. Giorgio Armani #13 (P, $33.00) is less matte. Make Up For Ever #04 (P, $20.00) has no sparkle/shimmer at all. See comparison swatches.

Country Girl Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “shimmery pink brown.” It’s a medium, rose-tinged brown with warm, orange undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. It wore well for eight hours. NARS Naiade (P) is browner. theBalm C4 (LE, $16.00) is browner. MAC Glimpse of Flesh (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Exposed (LE, $15.00) is a touch darker. Guerlain Turandot #2 (LE) is very similar. See comparison swatches.

Dirty Martini Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “matte olive green.” It’s a muted, medium-dark olive green with a matte finish and subtle warm undertones. It had fairly good color payoff, while the texture was soft and blendable. This shade lasted eight hours on me. theBalm D4 (LE, $16.00) is slightly darker. NARS Mozambique (P, $25.00) is a cream product. Burberry Khaki (08) (P) is browner. Make Up For Ever #47 (P, $20.00) is richer. See comparison swatches.

  2. I really don’t need any more pitch black eyeshadow, and yet I feel really drawn to corrupt :-)

    Hey Christine, was just wondering why is country girl recommended by you! Is there anything outstanding that pushes it to a ‘must-buy’? or is it just for its lovely color( not that that isnt enough justification!)

    • It’s a more unique shade and very versatile, plus it’s high quality :) Recommendations are usually based on a mix of 1) quality, 2) originality/uniqueness, 3) versatility, 4) how impressive it was overall!

  4. Country Girl & Dirty Martini look so nice! Country Girl is especially my type of shade.

    I like Country Girl, it’s really pretty! It will be added to my hypothetical Makeup Geek palette haha…

    I bought Corrupt and while I find that it’s a nice very pigmented black it’s so powdery at the same time! When I pick it up with either a flat or fluffy brush, it kicks up so much product it ruins my entire Z palette with black powder all over my other eyeshadows. Do u find this as well Christine or is it just me?

  7. Really wanting to experiment with Dirty Martini! I don’t remember ever seeing a green quite like it.

  8. Country girl is really pretty, want something as an all-over shadow, flesh-toned with a bit warmth, and this might just fit.

    Christine, do these inserts fit in the Mac E/S palette?

    I’ve got all 3 of these, plus a bunch more, and love 95% of them. I’ve had no problem with Corrupt messing up my Z Pallete, even when I’ve knocked it around. Just don’t jam your brush into it. You barely need to touch it to get enough pigment on your brush because it’s so intense.

    I would really love to see you do a look with these, Christine! I’m totally seeing these in a quad with a highlight color. Country Girl is so pretty!
