Makeup Geek Secret Garden is a neutral-toned, medium-dark duochrome with a frost finish. It is a discontinued eyeshadow that retails for $6.00 and contains 0.06 oz.
Makeup Geek Secret Garden Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a "deep espresso base with bright teal reflects." It has purple-burgundy base with strong teal shimmer. I don't get a lot of shifting from one color to the next, rather it is a complex color as the base is warmer and browner, and the shimmer is dense and produces strong teal color on top of the base--it has the effect of layering two dissimilar shades. The texture was dense and seemed to be pressed into the pan a bit harder than other shades, so it didn't blend out quite as easily as anticipated. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.
