Haul and First Impressions: Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows

Hi Bellas,

Happy Tuesday!  Back in December I picked up some of the new Makeup Geek Foiled eyeshadows.  I really fell in love with the swatches I saw online and on YouTube.  Well I finally got around to playing with them - check out my first impression!

There are 10 shades to choose from in the Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows Line.  They retail for $9.99 each.  I just picked up four of the shades - i'm a fan of the warm toned neutrals.

As usual, the product comes in pan form.  Makeup Geek produced special packaging with a rose gold cardboard sleeve - very chic!  These are the four shades I picked up - I thought they were very wearable and I love the metallic earth tones.

I wasn't sure what to expect from the formulation.  I thought it might be a semi-cream state but actually it's just like a regular powder eyeshadow but very smooth, metallic and pigmented.  I guess I was expecting a really unique formula because I've seen this kind of eyeshadow before.  I plan on doing a video on comparisons as well as a tutorial.  All in all I do think the shadows are nice quality but I think my expectations were super high.

I also picked up chickadee.  I'm a fan of the regular line and I heard great things about this color.  I think it'd be great for warming up the crease.

The swatch was decent - medium pigmentation, not chalky, but also not quite as impressive as some of the other mattes in the line.  I'll be incorporting this shadow into future looks before I give a final review.

Hope you guys enjoyed my mini review.

I created a look using the foiled eyeshadows which will be posted tomorrow.  Stay tuned!

Those are really pretty. They look like the pressed pigments by L'Oreal.
