About the Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows
With these rich and intensely-hued shades, the new Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows go beyond your standard line of cosmetics, introducing you to a new and powerful cosmetic experience. This cutting-edge formula offers a creamy texture that is a hybrid between a powder shadow and a cream shadow that is on a level of its own.
The formula is sort of like pressed pigment, very loosely packed into the pan. So while one of my shades arrived cracked, after I swatched it, it pressed back together.
I felt like Center Stage, Houdini and Caitlin Rose were less pigmented than the rest, though they could be built up.
All shades swatched on Coastal Scents Step One primer.
Light gold with yellow undertones and a foiled finish
glowy light gold. This is a pretty, eye brightening shade.
Bright amethyst purple with a foiled finish
This one had to be built up. It’s a glowy purple. My favorite of the bunch! All profits of Caitlin Rose go towards Batten Disease support and research. See more here.
Bright mossy green with slight gold undertones and a foiled finish
pretty green with golden tones. Makes me think of olives.
Deep emerald teal green with a foiled finish.
This one had to be built up. It’s a deep smoky emerald with teal tones

Deep medium taupe with strong purple undertones and a foiled finish

The collection feels warm-toned to me overall, and there are lots of neutrals. All ten of the eyeshadows are nice, though Caitlin Rose, Houdini and Center Stage appear to be less pigmented to me than the rest of the shades. Caitlin Rose, Magic Act, and In the Spotlight are glowy shades that I feel are eye brighteners. Showtine, Mesmerized, Center Stage and Houdini are good shade for shading or the crease.
The three eyeshadows that I wore – Caitlin Rose, Houdini and Magic Act wore all day on eyeshadow primer for me. I didn’t experience any creasing. I did experience a bit of transfer from Caitlin Rose, but I have very hooded eyes.
