|Makeup Geek Eyeshadow pans in a Large Z Pallet|
So after watching Marlena aka Makeup Geek for years on YouTube I was ecstatic when she brought out her own line of eyeshadows. I'm in the uk and was a bit weary about the shipping charges from America but was surprised at how cheap the shipping was. I finally decided to bite the bullet and order a few eyeshadows.
|Each pan comes in a cute cardboard slip so if you wanted to use them like this you can as one side has a open hole in it so that you can use it each colour.|
So they arrived in 7 days which I think is amazing! I ordered the pans on their own (you can buy them in actual casing but it costs more) so I could fill a palette, plus it made the shipping so much cheaper. I think my shipping worked out just a few quid, which is less than some places over here in the U.K....
Each single pan costs £3.63 ($5.99) and contains 1.8g of product, the same size as a MAC eyeshadow which would set you back £10 for just the pan.
The quality of these eyeshadows are AMAZING for the price. I was totally shocked at how good they were. The colour pay off is really good as they're highly pigmented, which is rare for some budget friendly eyeshadows. They are extremely easy to blend as well, so creating a eye look is virtually effortless. As with most budget friendly eyeshadows there is some fall out, but nothing to bad and nothing a bit of concealer doesn't fix. Like with most dark eyeshadows I would either recommend doing your eyeshadow before applying your base or using a tissue to catch any fall out.
There is currently over 60 shades available and I'm sure Marlena and her fabulous team are working hard to create more shades. There are colours for everyone, whether you like your neutrals, bright colours or smokey shades, there is something for everyone.

So that's my looong review of the Makeup Geek eyeshadows that I have. Are they worth the money??? Erm, have you been reading this?! YES they are!!! The price is great and the shipping is good too. Delivery is quick to overseas too. So if you're looking for some good quality eyeshadows but don't want to pay MAC prices these are the bad boys for you! I plan on buying some more shortly, I need to fill this palette up and I think I have space for seven more, so it would be rude not to fill it up!
You can purchase these from http://www.makeupgeek.com and go visit Marlena's YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/MakeupGeekTV and give the woman some love!
