Apple Spice

Makeup Geek Apple Spice Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to opaque coverage in one and a half layers. The texture was soft, slightly dusty but applied evenly and blended out nicely on the lid. It wore well for seven and a half hours on its own.

This shade will be available August 23rd.

Autumn Breeze

Makeup Geek Autumn Breeze Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark teal with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with two layers. The consistency had a lot more slip than is typical for the brand, so it made the base more prone to applying unevenly if it wasn’t applied with fingertips. I also noticed that the finish seemed to fade from metallic to pearl within a few minutes of application. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

This shade will be available August 23rd.

Grunge

Makeup Geek Grunge Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a dark, taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was dusty and a little thin, but it had opaque pigmentation that applied well and blended out without too much work, though it was a bit patchy initially. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

This shade will be available August 23rd.

Hayride

Makeup Geek Hayride Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. The texture was slightly powdery in the pan, but it managed to yield semi-opaque, buildable coverage. It worked best as a blending/transition shade or brow bone color than an all-over the lid shade, though, as it tended to sheer out a bit in practice. The color wore well for seven hours on me before it faded to my eye.

This shade will be available August 23rd.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

These shades make me think of 90’s Grunge looks, except for possibly the teal. And because I like them quite a lot, you can bet I’ve got dupes for each shade!

When I went into the look details, I saw your fabulous earings. Did they inspire your eye look or did you happen to have earrings to match?

Hi Christine, isn’t the eyeshadow named “apple spice” instead of “apple pie”? Sorry to nitpick. I love your reviews as always! You’re the best in the business!

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
