Makeup Geek Haul!

Armed with a little Christmas money from my Dad and Stepmom Delia, I finally pulled the trigger on getting some Makeup Geek eyeshadows! I purchased five well-known colors, Creme Brulee, Frappe, Peach Smoothie, Shimma Shimma and Cocoa Bear! I used them for the first time on Sunday. It was a really simple eye look because I thought we were going to church but my husband felt that we were all too sick and shouldn't infect others, which was the right call.

I can't wait to play around with them a bit more! I keep them in my Z Palette with my depotted Milani eyeshadows. The colors I got were very neutral but these, I feel, are the most raved about in their line. The only one I thought I might want to get is their black pan, but I have a few good black eyeshadows in my collection and I figured I should use those first.

Like I said, I was very light-handed with the shadows because I was going to church and then because I wasn't going anywhere. It was hard to snap photos that did it justice. I used Creme Brulee in the crease, Shimma Shimma on the lid and for the brow-bone highlight (which is gorgeous) and I put Cocoa Bear really lightly on the outer V of the eye. I then used the plum eyeliner that came in the Tarte Sweet Indulgences 3-in-1 Holiday Set to line my upper and lower lashline and used Smashbox Double Exposure Mascara on my upper lashes. I used Maybelline Lash Discovery on my lower lashline. 

I didn't use them to their full capacity but I already love them. Can't wait to play with them more! 

Do you have a favorite Makeup Geek eyeshadow? Let me know if I missed a good one!
