Makeup Geek Lipsticks Review and Swatches

A while back I purchased a couple of the Makeup Geek lipsticks to try out. I am in love with the Makeup Geek eyeshadows so I hoped that the lipsticks would be just as nice. I picked up Delightful and Fearless.


I love how the packaging design matches up and also says ‘Embrace Your Cosmetic Addiction.’

I like how the tops of the lipstick packaging are clear, so you can sort of see the lipstick inside it. Tubes themselves are sort of a semi-matte finish with a glossy black swirly design that matches the boxes. The inside of the lipstick tube says Makeup Geek in pink.

This is Fearless. It’s described as a hot pink with a mix of purple.

This is Delightful. It’s described as a warm pink with peach undertone.

All Makeup Geek lipsticks are cruelty-free and gluten-free.

I did one swipe on my skin to show the lipstick pigmentation.

This is the face shot of Delightful.

This is Fearless on the lips, it is very bright.

The Website Claims:
Look runway-ready with our Makeup Geek Lipsticks. These highly-pigmented lipsticks won’t dry your lips and aren’t sheer like other lipsticks. The creamy texture will make you fall in love the moment these touch your lips. Also, with the variety of colors, we are sure you will want to collect them all!

  • They’re very creamy, smooth, and feel nice on the lips
  • The perfect balance between being highly-pigmented, but not dry
  • Non-drying formula is perfect for even the most sensitive lips
  • Half the price of high-end lipsticks while providing premium quality you’ll fall in love with
  • Made in the USA

$7.99 for .14 oz

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes. I think the lipsticks are pigmented, non-drying and creamy. The only problem I had was that if I didn’t blot, they would move around a bit. The pigmentation is good. The lipsticks  can be applied sheerly or built up for full coverage. I rather like the way they look sheerly on the lips.

Would I purchase again?
Yes! I like the two colors I have. I was especially pleasantly surprised by Delightful because it’s a great peachy-pink on me. I find it very flattering. I really love Fearless too, as it’s a nice bright. These lipsticks are a great deal for the price, quality and pigmentation. I think if there’s a color you’re interested in, try it! I took a half star off for the bit of migration.

      I love Makeup Geek shadows but for some reason didnt know about the lipstick line..think I will be trying some out they look lovely:) xx

         @SaraBaker10 The lipsticks are relatively new :)

      Wow, those must really build well. I wasn’t expecting nearly that much impact on the lips when I saw the swatch on your hand! The Fearless is a very “you” shade, but I agree that Delightful is just that!

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

         @OutInAPout They do build well :) I really really love how they both look.

      Oh yes, Fearless is beautiful! I’m so envious of your awesome lip swatch photos. After a TON of practice over the past year, I think I actually got one shot that I kind of like today!! Very nice review :)

         @tinabeana12 Aww thanks! I’ve been practicing!

      I really like Delightful! But Fearless looks amazing one you!

         @geniabeme Aww thank you! It’s so RAWR.

      gorgeous colors!!! They look absolutely stunning on you, Phyrra!

         @lolassecretbeautyblog Thank you :)

      I’m surprised to see how pigmented they go on the lips given the sheerness of the swatches.  Delightful is definitely my fave, but they both look lovely on you. :]

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

         @BeautyThesis I did a single sheer swipe on my hand, but on my lips I applied the way I normally would, and since I didn’t use a lipliner, I went back over the edges and then pressed my lips together to try and get it to look right. I usually use liner, but I wanted to do the lipstick on its own.

      Both shades look fab, I’m going to try this line!

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

         @PrimeBeauty50 you have to let me know what shades you choose :)

    • Sarsie

      Ooh, thank you for posting this review! I’ve been curious about the lipsticks and have been pondering trying them out. I just need to justify buying more lip products to myself. :)

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

         @Sarsie These are cruelty-free, if that helps :)

        • Sarsie

           @Phyrra :) I know! That was a main reason for me wanting to try them! I was actually waiting to see how the reviews were, and they’ve been good overall. If I can use up some of my recent purchases, I will definitely be trying a couple of these. They look great on you!

      These do look really nice on you, the shades are pretty, but they’re not at all what I expected. I was really hoping they’d be much more pigmented than products like Revlon Lip Butters, which are really really nice, but I already have so many lip products like this. I can’t see myself buying any of these, unfortunately :-( Really disappointing as the ingredients in these are great. I love castor oil based lip products, the best ever. And I LOVE her eyeshadows! Phenomenal products. I very much hope she’s going to come out with an additional lip product formula in the near future, because in that case I’ll be loading up. Something more opaque with a variety of finishes, like matte, satin, shimmer, etc. I can see myself spending a lot of money on lipsticks like that, even with my already crazy collection.

      Great swatches, BTW, thanks for all the effort you put into these posts. I’ve been following your blog for over 2 years. Your swatches have turned me onto many indie brands I wouldn’t have otherwise tried.
