Makeup Geek Preppy, Latte, Unexpected, Drama Queen Eyeshadows
Makeup Geek Eyeshadows: Preppy (inner lid), Latte (middle of lid), Unexpected (outer lid),
Drama Queen (crease)

Makeup Geek Homecoming Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “medium brown with gold shimmer.” It’s a softened, medium-dark brown with warm, red undertones and a champagne sheen. The color payoff was very nice, and the consistency was soft, blendable, and buttery. It wore well for eight full hours. Bobbi Brown Bronze (LE, $28.00) is a cream product. Too Faced Hazelnut (P) is very similar. Laura Mercier Bamboo (P) is less warm-toned. Urban Decay Radar (LE, $18.00) is more metallic. Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss #4 (P, $30.00) is more golden, less red-toned. MAC Romantico (LE, $15.00) is similar. Urban Decay YDK (LE, $18.00) is lighter, more metallic. MAC Mulch (P, $15.00) is warmer, redder. See comparison swatches.

Latte Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “matte medium brown.” It’s a medium-dark, warm-toned brown with yellow-red undertones and a matte finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, though it’s very soft so it can sheer out a bit. If applied over a base, there shouldn’t be any issues with it. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me with light fading apparent by the eighth hour. Makeup Geek Frappe (P, $5.99) is slightly lighter and has a satin finish. Laura Mercier Truffle (P) is darker. theBalm C4 (LE, $16.00) is shimmery, redder. Wet ‘n’ Wild To Muse and Carouse #2 (LE) is similar. Urban Decay Beware (LE, $18.00) is slightly more orange-toned. MAC Soft Brown (P, $15.00) is similar–a little redder in tone. Inglot #337 (P, $6.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Mango Tango Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “peachy pink with flecks of gold.” It’s an orange-coral with a subtle gold shimmer that gives it a satin finish. It had excellent color payoff, and the texture was soft–a smidgen powdery–and blendable. When I tested it, the color lasted for eight and a half hours before starting to fade. MAC Daydreaming (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery. Guerlain Les Fauves #3 (LE) is similar. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #2 (LE) is lighter. bareMinerals Smash Hit (LE) is lighter, more matte. Inglot #361 (P, $6.00) is lighter, more matte. See comparison swatches.
