Makeup Geek was made over 3 weeks ago now, and this week they finally arrived ( with a customs charge, which was a bit annoying). I've heard many people talking about their eye shadows, and how they're on par with MAC, minus the price tag, so I thought it was about time I tried them for myself! I got three eye shadows, a Z palette and the Soft Dome Shadow Brush.
Left - Right Crème Brulee, Cocoa Bear and Peach Smoothie all $5.99 eachAll the shades I got are matte. I've been looking for some warm matte transition colours that I could use in the crease, I couldn't seem to find any that weren't in numerous different palettes, and not wanting to buy two or three palettes I decided these were the best option. On first inspection of the shadows they seem buttery soft and well pigmented, and I hope to create some make up looks with these in the coming weeks so keep your eye out for them!
The Soft Dome Brush ($7.99) is slightly tapered and looks perfect for defining the crease, the soft bristles look ideal for buffing and defusing the eye shadows so I look forward to giving it a whirl.
Maybelline had a 3 for 2 offer in Boots so of course I had to pick up a few things. Firstly was the 'Even Better Skin' foundation, a foundation that "Evens out skin tone instantly and delivers better looking skin in 3 weeks"!! With claims like that I was sold instantly and look forward to my "better skin" in the future! Well I'm hoping anyway!
No shopping trip is complete without a lipstick purchase and this trip was no different. I picked up two lippies. Colour Sensational 'Shocking Coral', a bright vivid pinky coral which I'm in love with already! And the Colour Sensational Shine Gloss in ' Glorious Grapefruit', a sheer peachy coral shade with a tiny hint of shimmer that looks natural and understated on the lips.
