Time Travel is beautiful! Some of these swatches are looking mediocre, so I will be interested in reading the review. I bet these would be really improved from the swatch with a primer, so they may still be worth it, especially at this price point!

I’ve always wondered as someone who lives in a country makeupgeek is a little more expensive to ship to, I’ve always heard rave reviews about her shadows but if you were to put price range aside how would these compare to the MUFE eyeshadows? I don’t mind paying more for quality and just wondering if these were worth trying.

The formulas are very different – MUFE’s formula in general (except the mattes) is much denser than the average powder eyeshadow on the market, but they are closer to Makeup Geek’s Foiled Eyeshadows with respect to texture (but MUFE is firmer, less soft in the pan). As always, it really depends on the shade – some are really great, some are misses!

Hi Christine,
thanks so much for the response! I always thought of MUFE as the epitome of eyeshadows I compare the rest too so it’s nice to hear that Makeupgeek can be just as good. I’ll definitely have to check them out!

It depends on the shade. MUFE shadows are more consistent in quality. Makeup Geek does have some shades that are just as good and thus are fantastic shadows, you just have to know which ones. Anything Christine gave an A or A+.

Why the purples again ???? 🙁 And that blue reminds me of the sad blue (Dear Daniel) from the Hello Kitty kit. Enchanted Forest looks nice but others look dry, patchy, chunky

Um, yikes, what happened here with like half of these, I wonder? Especially with the PURPLES! Arrgghh!!!
I do, however, really LOVE Cherry Cola!
Vintage, Dragonfly, Americano, Fuji, Morocco, Mirage and Time Travel all look solid, thank goodness!

I expected some of these to perform better since they were reformulated. Some look really good though. I’m in no rush to get these, so I’ll wait for reviews.

I’m sad if Boo Berry really looks that weak. :/ It’s a pretty blue shade, but I’ll have to wait to see the scores on these and some more people using them. I know a lot of people receive MUG as PR, so I try to take their reviews with a grain of salt, but then I’ll try to pay careful attention to how it looks like the product applies when they’re using them in videos.

Oh no! Half of these don’t look good. But I will still try the ones I was eyeing before. I’d rather build up color than have too much and go overboard (personal preference) as long as they aren’t patchy or have trouble blending then I think i’m good.

i got 6 from the line when they launched and yeah they swatch horribly but with a primer underneath it performs quite nice on the eye , and gives you control over how much u can use as they build up to the intensity you want. I guess it’s a mater of preference, because i don’t like bam in your face from first application matte shadows as they can get too intense too fast, i like the fact they build up and I have a bit more control with these. Just my impression 🙂 i bought : cherry cola, confection, petal pusher, bedrock, sorbet and fairytale so far plan to get a few more 🙂

Yes!! I’ve been waiting for this! Can’t wait to read the full review. Glad I was able to control myself and not buy these or the duochromes until your reviews were out. The hype around makeup launches is so hard to resist falling into.

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!
