Makeup Geek 9-Eyeshadow Starter Kit | Review

Having not tried Makeup Geek eyeshadows before I figured the best and most cost effective way to try would to be to buy the starter kit, and luckily I wasn’t disappointed. The mattes are probably the best matte eyeshadows that I’ve ever used! The kit contains a great mix of warm, cool, shimmer and matte shades so it makes it super versatile when creating makeup looks.

What I found strange about these shadows is usually I find that shows swatch better on your hand then they do apply on your eye with a brush, however these look better applied on the eye than they do in a swatch! I would definitely recommend these shadows.

The kit is $50 and available here.

Phee’s Makeup Tips Mineral Eyeshadows | Review

Screen Shot 2015-02-17 at 16.51.441
I was lucky enough to be sent the new mineral eyeshadows created by Phee’s Makeup Tips. I was super stoked to try them out and I wasn’t disappointed. The eyeshadows come pressed in a larger-than-usual 37mm pan giving you 3g of product. They will fit easily in a Z-palette and the minimal packaging is great for the environment (hooray!)

The shadows are crazy pigmented and have a lovely shimmer to them that isn’t chunky in the slightest. When applying the shadows I didn’t experience any fallout, which is great considering shimmery shadows often do have a lot of fallout (just remember to tap the excess off your brush before applying) and they blended perfectly.

Here’s a quick little play I had with the eyeshadows, I used Polilla all over the lid, Sphinx in the crease and under the eye (I do love a good warm colour in the crease) and Peppered to highlight the inner corner. The colours all look great together but would work perfectly alone as well.

The eyeshadows are available for £6.50 for 3g of product from her website and as with all Phee’s products, the mineral eyeshadows are cruelty free.
