Recently I purchased more of the Makeup Geek Colors. I’ve been consistently impressed with their colors and their quality. The pigmentation is great. They’re very smooth. They’re cruelty-free. They’re only $5.99, so very affordable too.
Some of their shades are comparable to MAC colors, so if you’ve been looking for MAC shades but been put off by the price of MAC or loose indie shadows, these are a great pressed alternative.
Above is all of my Makeup Geek shadows in a Z-palette. I’ve got like 2 non MUG shadows in there: MAC Aquadisiac and Stars Makeup Haven Metro.
Here are the three shades that I just purchased.
Cinderella is supposed to be like MAC Jest, which I have and loved. I like the finish / tone of Cinderella better, but both are really nice peach shades.
Stealth is supposed to be similar to MAC Print. I don’t own it but I’ve always wanted it. It’s a really nice grey matte shade.
Galaxy is supposed to be similar to MAC Charred. It’s a deep gunmetal grey with sparkle. I love it.
I recently did a video tutorial with Cinderella and Galaxy. I used Cinderella on my lid and lower lash line. I used Galaxy on the outer corner of the lid, the outer lower lash line and the crease. I added a touch of Moondust to the upper crease.
And of course, I swatched a bunch of shades together for you.
One thing I noticed is that MUG Mermaid seems similar to UD Shattered, only Mermaid has stronger blue tones.
Anyway, I love Makeup Geek shadows. I’m glad I purchased these 3 shades. I know they’ve come out with more new shades recently, too. Pixie Dust looks like my kind of green.
Cinderella is really a great peach shade and I love how it looks on me. Galaxy is a lot of fun too. I can’t wait to try out Stealth.
Have you tried Makeup Geek Shadows yet? What colors are calling your name?
Some products purchased by me. Some products sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.

Merci pour ces swatches de qualité ! Je vais sans doute me laisser tenter par ces fards
You’re welcome Sonia!
I think my favorite is Pretentious, it doesn’t get talked about much though but it’s really pretty!
I don’t think I have that one, I’ll have to check it out.
I have the black, Corrupt, and the quality is just FANTASTIC. I want to buy more, but I really don’t wear eyeshadow all that often. Still, the price is right, and the quality is so good.
Yeah the quality is great. I was really thrilled when I tried my first shadows from them.
I love their eyeshadows, I just wish they had more colors! They’re pigmentation, IMO, better then MAC. I need more swipes of my MAC shroom then I do of shimma shimma to get the same color pay off. Love love love them!
Yeah Marlena’s formula is good!
Wow they’re really pigmented, I like the grey shade. And I just realized I need MAC aquadisiac
Aquadisiac is nice. The grey is amazing to me
I have wanted some MUG shadows since they started coming out. I’m going to try to pick some up after I get paid. I seem to recall that they are going to make some lipstick too…or was that just a dream? If so, when do you think that might be?
I think they are making lipstick but I’m not sure when. I’ll post about it when I find out
Stealth also looks a bit like the grey shadow in MAC’s LE Daphne Guinness palette, which I love and consider one of the best shadows they have ever made!

I’ve got about 10 of these now & love them. I hope she keeps coming out with new colors. I’m not as thrilled with the lipsticks, but they’re ok. Nothing I would buy again & again, though. Thanks for the great swatches
