Makeup Geek Creme Brulee Eyeshadow
Makeup Geek Creme Brulee Eyeshadow

It took me a few years, but I’ve come to enjoy and appreciate neutrals quite a bit!  In fact, I’m more likely to opt for neutrals than bright colors on the rare day I’m not testing something (often special occasions, which might disadvantage brights!).  I recently wore these four Makeup Geek Eyeshadows together, and I thought they came together nicely.   Creme Brulee and Cocoa Bear both wore well for over eight hours, while Frappe and Brown Sugar were slightly faded by the eight-hour mark.  All four were very blendable, though, and had good color payoff across the board.

Makeup Geek Creme Brulee Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “medium sand color with a soft matte finish.” It’s a light-medium brown with warm, peach undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was soft, finely-milled, and smooth–but not at all powdery. Too Faced Chocolate Milk (LE) is browner, less warm-toned. MAC Layin’ Low (P, $18.50) is very similar but is a cream product. MAC Indie Spirit (LE, $15.00) is darker. MAC Soft Brown (P, $15.00) is darker. MAC Glimpse of Flesh (LE, $15.00) is shimmery. Inglot #337 (P, $6.00) is less warm-toned, darker. See comparison swatches.

Frappe Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “medium maple brown matte.” It’s a warm-toned, caramel brown with a satin-matte finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, and the texture was soft without being powdery–very blendable. Too Faced Chocolate Milk (LE) theBalm C4 is slightly darker. (LE, $16.00) is browner. Wet ‘n’ Wild To Muse and Carouse #2 (LE) is similar. Urban Decay Beware (LE, $18.00) is a touch darker. MAC Indie Spirit is warmer. (LE, $15.00) MAC One to Watch is more shimmery. (P, $21.00) MAC Soft Brown (P, $15.00) is darker. MAC Glimpse of Flesh (LE, $15.00) is shimmery. Inglot #337 (P, $6.00) is grayer. See comparison swatches.

Cocoa Bear Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “matte reddish brown.” It’s a medium-dark, red-toned brown with a matte finish. The pigmentation was excellent–really rich and opaque–while the texture was soft, smooth, and velvety. Anastasia Sienna (LE) is warmer, lighter. MAC Soft Brown (P, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Brown Script (P, $15.00) is a little darker. See comparison swatches.

Brown Sugar Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “warm shimmery copper brown.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with a soft, pearly sheen. It had subtle warm undertones. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was soft, though a little dry. Anastasia Truffle (LE) is similar. Clarins The Essentials #9 (LE) is more frosted. CoverGirl Scorching Cocoa (355) (P, $4.99) is grayer. MAC Lie Low (P, $21.00) is similar. MAC Mulch (P, $15.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.
