I finally picked up more of the Makeup Geek Foiled eyeshadows. I've been putting it off because I needed another Z Palette to hold them, so I got that too.

Before we get into the foiled shadows, let's take a second to appreciate how gorgeous this Z Palette is. I'm pretty sure it's a Makeup Geek exclusive. There's no way I could pass up that Rose Gold Chevron print. No way.

You may have noticed that one of these shadows is not, in fact a foiled shadow. That's 'Bitten'. Since I bought it, I figured I'd go ahead and swatch it too.

How gorgeous and metallic are these shadows? Seriously. Okay, let's swatch!

Foiled Shadow Swatches
 From left to right:
  • Whimsical - This is a very metallic lavender/lilac shade.
  • Masquerade - Very violet, slightly blue-toned as you can tell. 
  • Fortune Teller - Yellow-gold gorgeousness.
  • Flamethrower - All the coppery goodness you need during the fall.
  • Bitten - Matte burgundy/brown. Not foiled, still a fall necessity.
  • Starry Eyed - Champagne, kind of the color family of Urban Decay 'Sin' but SO much more pigmented, metallic and gorgeous. Slightly more beige than Stila 'Kitten'.
  • Magic Act - Pale gold. Perfect for the holidays. YES.

Can you just appreciate how gorgeous these eyeshadows are? I just keep buying them because they're so pretty, I need to own them all. 

So, formula:

  • These are almost a cream. They have more oil in them than normal eyeshadows, which is what gives them their intense pigment and shine. Because of this, an eye primer is a necessity. Without a primer, these are going to crease and quickly. However, with a primer these are amazing. They last all day, they don't fade and that shine is insane. 

A few downsides:
  • They transfer. If you have hooded eyelids, even slightly like me, they will transfer into your crease almost immediately.
  • Applying eyeliner can be tricky. These are so metallic, shiny and pigmented, that they kind of shine right through your eyeliner. You'll need to layer a liquid liner to get a flat black line, or use an opaque gel liner. 

These are seriously beautiful shadows and I definitely recommend picking a few up. They're so gorgeous, I just can't pass them up!

You can grab these at www.makeupgeek.com

Thanks for reading!
