Price
$6.99 for 1.5 to 2 grams of product

Availability
Makeup Geek

You can see my previous Makeup Geek Pigment reviews here and here.

Both pigments swatched on Coastal Scents Step One Primer. I would not recommend wearing these without primer. I think they can also benefit from a mixing medium like Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy or e.l.f. Makeup Mist & set.

Jackpot
Pale Shimmery Yellow with the same texture as New Year’s Eve
My Take
light metallic yellow gold

Jackpot requires a sticky base. It has a similar texture to my favorite MUG pigment, New Year’s Eve. With a sticky base it’s gorgeous.

Poker Face
Medium golden bronze
My Take
rich metallic bronze with golden tones

This is a rich, pigmented shade with brown undertones. It’s very luxe.

Makeup Geek pigments are a great value for the price. They work out to $3.50 per ounce. If you compare that to MAC pigments, which are $4.67 per ounce, you can agree that the MUG are a better deal.

With Jackpot, it’s very similar in consistency to New Years Eve, which I always use with a mixing medium. A good combination for these shades would be to apply a wash of Poker Face to the lid and crease. Then spritz your brush with e.l.f. Makeup Mist and Set and apply Jackpot to the center of the lid. You’ve got an easy, golden bronze look.

Have you tried any of the Makeup Geek Pigments? Which are your favorites?

    • I recommend putting down a towel (like a wash cloth or a hand towel) and sitting your jars on that towel before you open them. That makes them easier to work with / less mess on your vanity

  • I don’t regularly wear pigments, but I have some from MUG and love the finish when they are applied wet. I am having a lot of trouble storing them though. I put sifters in the jars, but now the jars don’t close all the way. I thought the sifters would make things less messy, but it turns out they make a bigger mess in storage. Any suggestions?

    • So I’m not a fan of sifters (though I have had eyeshadows die from me spilling them across the floor). I do recommend putting down a towel and then putting the jar on the towel. That way the mess is contained to the towel.
