I've been wanting to give the Makeup geek shadows a go since they first starting doing the rounds in the blogosphere. However I've been holding off but I finally broke and made a rather large order. The problem is now I am so in love with the shadows. The quality is second to none. They are buttery, blendable and extremely pigmented.
Shimma shimma is a beautiful pale champagne shade with a metallic finish I think out of the eight shades I went for this is the one I've the most. It makes a lovely brow bone and inner corner highlight but I also like to use it for a little wash of colour over the lid and pair it with a little bit of liner.
Peach Smoothie is a matte shade, it's a pale peach shade which makes a lovely all over the lid shade. It's a very warm shade and I love to pair it with one of the other warm matte shades I picked up.
Glamorous is a coppery warm gold with a metallic finish. It's one of those perfect one swipe shades which settles a little darker in the crease. It's such a lovely warm shade and I absolutely love the warm tones with my blue eyes.
Cosmopolitan is a beautiful mix of rose gold and orange again it's another metallic shade it works brilliantly as a base to create a rose gold smokey eye. It's got such a stunning gold sheen to it and although I haven't worn it yet I'm very much looking forward to using it.
Purely Naked is a warm light brown shade with very subtle silver shimmer in it. Again it's one of those perfect subtle all over the lid shades which I like to wear paired with a slightly darker warm brown shade.
Frappe once again it's another warm brown shade (are you sensing a theme) This one is probably the warmest shade I picked out and it looks absolutely stunning in the crease paired with Peach smoothie.
Latte is a pretty neutral dark sandy brown it's completely matte. It makes a lovely basic transition shade for super dark brown smokey eyes but it also makes a lovely basic crease colour.
Mocha is the final shade I ordered as I felt like I needed a dark shade, it's just a very basic matte dark brown shade.
