Makeup Geek Shadows in Cupcake and Cosmopolitan

I finally decided to try out Makeup Geek shadows. I know I'm quite behind with the times. But I recently got one of those MAC fill your own palettes and since I had the space, I decided to try out different types of shadows. What a logical way of thinking. I do really hate z palettes though. So I needed to get these babies a home before trying them out. I decided to get the colors "Cupcake" and "Cosmopolitan" since I love pinky shades. 

Cupcake on the Left, Cosmopolitan on the Right. 

The shadows come in standard pans, just like the MAC ones. 

Basically I swatched these and then I hopped on the website and ordered 6 more. Different shades obviously. Cupcake seems similar to the Lorac Pro "Mauve" but more pink. I really like to use that for a transition shade. And Cosmopolitan is a super sparkly light pink/peach with gold. I don't think I have a color like it actually. Either way, these both blend super easily and look great on the eye. 

So basically, any suggestions for other Makeup Geek shadows are more than welcome. 


  1. Cosmopolitan looks beautiful. I have my heart set on MUG Desert Sands x

  2. Oh that one looks great too. Makeup geek has amazing shadows.

  3. I'm on the verge of placing a very large Makeup Geek eyeshadow order. I think I have 12 eyeshadows in my basket. I've never tried them, but everyone loves them, so I doubt I'd be disappointed. Cosmopolitan is in my cart. Why do you hate z palettes? (I've never owned one.)

  4. I don't think you'll be disappointed with Cosmopolitan. It's gorgeous. And it's the weirdest thing. They look and feel cheap to me. I bought one for $20 and I think my MAC palette that was $10 is much nicer.
