Makeup Geek Spring 2016 Eye Shadow Pans: Sand Dollar, Friend Zone, Rebel & Tiki Hut | Review & Swatches
Price: $6 each * Buy At: Makeup Geek Website * Size: 0.05 oz
Makeup Geek has just released eighteen new shadows for spring, and I picked up four of them: Sand Dollar, Friend Zone, Rebel and Tiki Hut.
Sand Dollar is described as a “porcelain pink grey” with a matte finish. While it would be a highlight shade on many skin tones, on me, it is a really pretty, light transition shade. I find this shade to work well with both warm and cool crease colors, and it can work for different purposes on every skintone
Friend Zone is described as a “dusty purple brown” with a matte finish. Although I expected this shadow to be a bit more unique, to me it is just a pretty average dark taupe, which I have plenty of within my collection. This is not to discount the formula however, which is smooth, pigmented, and easy to blend.
Rebel is described as a “deep dusty purple with a gold overlay” and a shimmery finish. This shade is really unique; I do not have any shadows in my collection that are similar. How it looks in the pan really translates onto the eyes. Rebel has a smooth, soft texture and needs a bit of building up to get the gold overlay to be intense, but once you do, it is absolutely gorgeous!
Tiki Hut is described as a “medium tawny brown” with a matte finish. Tiki Hut is following along with the mustard-tone eyeshadow trend, and provides an affordable option to shadows like Bobbi Brown Camel. The texture is smooth and blendable, comparable to many more expensive shadows.
