Makeup Geek Shadows - Part 1

|
By cristalena56 · April 3, 2016
As Thrift Thicke would sing on YT, "Youtube made me buy it and now i'm going to try it". In January of last year after watching a Jaclyn Hill makeup geek favorite shadows video, I  decided to buy some of these shadows. I have since made a few orders since that initial order. I think I own now 40 shadows of theirs (38 pans and 2 pigments). 
 
Makeup Geek Cosmetics is a makeup company started by Youtuber Marlena. She considers herself a makeup teacher rather then a makeup artist. I have been following her yt channel for quite a few years now. I think she was my second youtube subscription after Leesha (xsparkage). I don't know why I was so late joining the bandwagon on these shadows because they are amazing.
The shadows are pigmented, blend easily, and last all day. Plus they only cost $6 a Pan or $10 for their Foiled shadow pans. I noticed recently MAC reduced their price of their pro single refill pans to $6.00 and I think it's probably because they were losing business to this company since their shadows were $10 compared to MUG $6.00. I actually put my mug shadows in mac pro duo palettes with inserts. 
 
These are the shadows I bought recently when they were having a bundle sale. From time to time they will put bundles of 9 shadows for a certain price. They are made up from their regular, duochrome, and foiled lined shadows. This set was on sale for $25 and i also bought one extra shadow. They currently have the Spring Fever Set for $30. 
All their shadows come in these thin cardboard squares. I recently ordered some mac ones and they came in similar packaging. 
I'll start with the 2 duochromes and 2 foiled shadows. Duochromes are when you have one color but when you move it around in the light it can reflect 1 or more other colors. The foiled shadows give you that wet (foiled) look without having to wet your brush. 
Duochromes on the left and foiled on right. Took these outside with no flash.
Shade: Mai Tai
Description: Apricot Base with Orchid Reflects 
Thoughts: I think it's a dark peach color that in certain angles it looks more pink. It reminds me a little of the duochrome shadow from the morphe jaclyn hills favorite palette (ES67).  
Price: $6.00
  Next
Desscription: Buff Base with Peachy-Pink Reflects.
Thoughts: 
Price: $6.00
Foiled...
Description: Soft Pink with Coral Undertones and a Foiled Finish.
Thoughts: It looks like a  peachy-coral to me with a golden foiled finish.
Price: $9.99
and then... lol
 Name: Daydreamer
Description: Light lilac purple with cool undertones and a foiled finish
Thoughts: Light lavendar purple with a silvery foiled finish.
Price: $9.99
do be do be do...
 These shadows are from their normal line. 
 Here there are 3 mattes and 1 shimmer.
Description: Metallic Champagne 
Thoughts: Light beige with a frosted golden sheen. I mainly use this color as a inner corner highlight. This was one of the first shadows i bought. This one will be a backup. 
Price: $6.00
 I didn't swatch this one or the next one because I already own them. I'll have swatch them from my other ones and add them later...
Description: A Light Peach Beige with a Soft Matte Finish
Thoughts: A light peachy orange matte. I mainly use this as a transition shade in my crease. 
Price: $6.00
 It's a little more orange then it shows in the picture above... When I post the pictures of another haul, you will see what I am talking about.. 
 Name: Sorbet
Description: Pastel Melon Pink with a Matte Finish
Thoughts: Dusty Light Corally Pink Matte. It didn't want to swatch very well so this one I had to swatch over a primer. 
Price: $6.00
lalalala..
 Name: Bedrock
Description: Medium Gray with Strong Brown Undertones and a Matte Finish.
Thoughts: This was another one I had to apply over a primer because it was patchy. It's a brownish gray color.
Price: $6.00

 
 

Morphe Brushes Jaclyn Hill Favorites Palette

|
By cristalena56 · February 8, 2015

So I've been following Morphe Brushes on Instagram for over a year now but i've never made a purchase from them. I think I started following them because they were sponsoring a contest at some point in time and to earn an extra entry you followed their instagram page. I remember some posts at the end of december about a palette that was coming out that was hand picked by a girl named Jacyln Hill. I had no idea to be honest who she was. I was like who is this person and what's the big hoopla over this palette. lol I remember just reading comments about people being mad because they couldn't get on the site and then when they did it was sold out. I guess someone was hacking their site at the time of the launch. Well during the next week I was looking up swatches for makeup geek shadows because I was wanting to buy some and that is how i found Jaclyn hill's blog/yt channel. It was watching her videos the first week of January that i found out what her palette was all about. I had actually been wanting some warmer colors since all my shadows are more brighter shades and this seemed like a good one for me to get for those brown/cranberry shades i was looking for. Alas though when i went to purchase it from their site they hadn't restocked it yet but then my hubby reminded me that he was working a beauty show at the end of january in Long Beach. I immediately checked the website for the show and found that morphe brushes was going to be there and only a few booths over. Score!! So I had him pick it up for me while he was there. :)

I forgot to take pictures of the box when i first got it so now there is icky water spots/fingerprints on it...

These shadows are sooo amazingly pigmented. I can't believe individually these only cost $2.00 each, because that is such a good deal. The palette retails for $27.99 which makes them a $1.00 a piece.
 
I think the last row is my favorite. :)

ES4 - OFF WHITE (FRO

ES6 - SOFT GOLDEN PEACHY BROWN (MATTE)
ES76 - BEIGE CHAMPAGNE (SHIMMER)
ES64 - PEACHY BROWN W/SHIMMER (VELVET)
ES75 - SHINY RUST (SHIMMER)

I've been using a couple of the first ones as an inner corner highlight.


ES67 - DUAL-INTENSITY PEACH/PINK (PEARL)
ES13 - SOFT GOLD-PEACH W/PEARL (SATIN)
ES62 - MUTED TAUPE BROWN (MATTE)
ES63 - MUTED BROWN (MATTE)
ES20 - INTENSE BROWN/GOLD W/SHIMMER (FROST)
ES47 - GOLDEN APRICOT (SHIMMER)
ES66 - VIBRANT CORAL (MATTE)

Favorites: I love both oranges. I think the first shade is pretty and can't wait to figure out a look to use it. I've been using the browns for my crease area.

ES33 - SOFT BABY PINK (PEARL)
ES68 - METALLIC RASPBERRY (SHIMMER)
ES16 - SOFT MUTED ROSY BROWN (SATIN)
ES15 - GOLDEN ORANGE BROWN (MATTE)
ES61 - LIGHT GOLDEN BROWN (MATTE)
ES24 - INTENSE REDDISH BROWN (MATTE)
ES74 - COPPER (SHIMMER)

Favorites: Loving the pinks. I've been using 33 and mixing with 66 to make a shiny peachy color for my lids and then pairing it with a couple of the browns.

ES11 - ORANGE COPPER (VELUXE PEARL)
ES59 - VIBRANT CRAN-PURPLE (MATTE)
ES38 - PINK W/BLUE PEARL (LUSTRE)
ES53 - SOFT PURPLE (PEARL)
ES48 - AMETHYST (SHIMMER)
ES71 - DEEP MAROON RED (MATTE)
ES19 - INTENSE GREEN W/SHIMMER (LUSTRE)
Outdoors Flash
Favorites: I love all of them, especially the purples and the pink shade. 

I labeled each shadow with the corresponding individual shadow number. </p>

Thoughts: I love this palette. For the most part the shadows are super pigmented and the ones that aren't can be built up. h colors I have used so far blend easily without much trouble wich is also a plus. I work in the stock room and coming home after 8 to 9 hours working my shadows look pretty good with minor fading in the crease area. I highly recommend this palette if you were looking for some warm shades and some pops of color as well. I can see myself using this palette for everyday looks. I'm also interested in trying out some of their brushes. Anybody have any recommendations??

<p>Editing Notes: All the swatches were dry swatches. I didn't use any primer or anything like that. I just swatched each shadow with my fingers. 

Star Crushed Minerals Haul Swatches (Picture Heavy)

|
By cristalena56 · March 31, 2014
I've been seeing their products a lot lately throughout the beauty community. So around valentine's day they were having a 50% off sale and decided to make an order. I was hoping that I would find the neon shades that swatches had been popping up all over Facebook, but they weren't released yet(as of now they still aren't released and no idea if they will ever... I hope they do..). So i picked out 10 shade samples and a primer sample. Most indy companies send out their samples in the little baggies, but they send theirs all out in jars (BFTE doe the same). I prefer the jars out of the baggies. I find them easier to find the color im looking for verses the baggies. With the baggies, i seem to look at all of them before i find the color i am looking for.  So that's a total plus in my book.

There was a bunch of confetti stars inside the bags and envelope. 


The eye shadow samples I bought were $1.00 to $2.00 each and according to sticker on the jar they are .5 grams.


Product: Eye Shadow Primer
Website Description: This emollient rich eye shadow primer is designed to not only prep your eyes for eye shadow application but to moisturize as it does so. Neutralizes eyelid color.

I thought these were very pigmented and since I was given a coupon for 65% off, I think i'm going to purchase some more. I've yet to play with these just yet though. I have some ideas for them though. I've only had them about a week so far. :) I noticed some of these can stain like Black Sapphire and Neptune Star. I also think Orchid could be a little more pigmented. I think it might be because its a matte esque shade and thats why it was harder to swatch then the others. You can make a purchase at their etsy shop Star Crushed Minerals. They are still having their spring sale, so check them out. :)

Maybelline Color Show Street Art - Wild at Heart

|
By cristalena56 · January 27, 2014
I was just perusing the makeup aisle at Wally World yesterday and happened to see the Street Art collection from Maybelline. They were out of the pink one but i liked the look of the red one "Wild At Heart". 

Its a clear base with red bar glitter, black and red hexagon glitter, and tiny black speckled glitter. 

I found when applying it that it can be a litte chunky. It works better as a glitter top coat then wearing it alone. The look reminded me of marble countertops or tiles. I really like the look of it though.


I decided to try it over some colors. I decided to do a quick Easter Egg Look.

I like it over Zoya Blu and Haute Nails Pink Panther(this didn't come with a name on the bottle) the most.

I used the Color Club Top coat and it dried really fast.

Heres a more close up picture. </p> <p>Thoughts on Polish: I actually really liked this polish. You only need one coat when you use it as a glitter top coat. I found it hard to layer using it alone. It would come out really chunky and I didn't like it at all. 
Price: $2.95 at Wal-mart
Size: 0.23 oz/7 mL

Darling Girl Cosmetics 1st Order - Swatches and Review

|
By cristalena56 · September 3, 2013
</p>

<strong><span style="font-size: large;">For awhile now i have noticed the name Darling Girl Cosmetics throughout the beauty world reading blogs, facebook beauty pages, etc... Wasn't til I saw a look XoXo Alexis Leigh posted a month ago that I discovered what amazing colors they have. I had seen a few looks here and there using some of their products but this one had sparkly duochrome shades used in it. I was immediately mesmerized by them. I couldnt click on their website fast enough.

</span><span style="font-size: large;">Once I got there and started looking through the eye colors with my jaw dropping with every click, I knew I had to make an order. I decided to buy a few jars and also ordered a review kit which was on sale for a $1.00 (squeal!!). I thought that deal was super awesome for getting to try out 5 different products. I was going to order one of the lipglosses that looked awesome but they were sadly all sold out. I like that this site has a wishlist, so I can goto it when I want to order something and pick out from the beauties I had already discovered. I am on my 11th page. 


Such cute wrapping!! I love the logo!!

This was the review kit I got. I chose 5 shadow samples and they came in the normal sample baggies. I believe each has an 1/8 of a tsp. 

*Sweet Savage: Matte Midtone carnation pink
*Rich Gurl: A sky blue thats on the periwinkle side with a green duochrome. Its very sparkly!!
*Persuasion: Medium lavender base with gold shift and turquoise sparkles. 
*Unicorn: A shimmery irridescent silvery white but when applied its a irridescent pale pink, maybe even a little purplish with turquoise sparkles.  This was my favorite color I recieved. I already went through the sample and had to order a jar of it. :)
*Obviously a Wig: Magenta with a blue/purple duochrome. I love this color!! I think it makes an awesome lip gloss color!!

</a>Dry swatch, Elf Primer, and then over UD Liner Zero


Love the flowers!

The Petit jars cost $2.50 and they come with approximately 1/4 tsp in a 3 gram jar that includes a sifter. The full size comes in a 5g jar including sifter with approx. with a 3/4 tsp of shadow.

Basket Case: Bright purple with turquoise shift and gold sparkles.

Dark Crystal: Deep graphite with color shifts from lilac, red/silver to greenish-blue with a red/pink "diamond dust" sparkle.
</span></strong>
London Calling: Indigo base with heavy red shift.

My Little Pony: Pale, pastel lavender with green shift and aqua and pink iridescence.


<span style="font-size: large;"><strong>No Sign of Life: Oceanic blue with a brilliant grass-green shift and baby green sparkles.

Dry Swatch with Finger, Elf Primer, and UD Liner Zero

Free Sample time!!

Every package comes with a couple baggie samples and stickers. Also when you make a purchase of $10 or more you get the weekly GWP (Gift with purchase) shade. 

Peachy Keen: Peach with pink sheen along with gold/green/purple sparkles. This was a gift with purchase shade but if you contact susan she might have more that you can purchase. 
*Bronze Dawn: Ruddy pinky mauve base with strong gold sheen 
*Leaping Lizards: <span>medium grey with golden green sheen that shifts to a grey with red/violet sheen

Thoughts: I love all these colors!! They are very sparkly. I find they work well with the glitter glue that I bought when i ordered from them a 2nd time. With all shadows I would say use a primer. These seemed to last a long time and are vibrant. I work in a stock room that only has a couple fans and no ac. I live in phx, so to give you a rough idea of the weather where I am at. I come home and my makeup has very minor creasing if at all. There can be a little fallout but not too bad. I love these and highly recommend their shadows. I can't wait to order more. I'm waiting til Sept. 6th to order some Halloween Shades from the Oh! The Horror Collection. :) I need to swatch these colors with DG glitter glue and will update this post with a pic.

Inglot Haul

|
By cristalena56 · May 20, 2013
</p>

I went to Las Vegas last weekend for the first time. I remembered that there was a Inglot store somewhere there. I decided to find it and found it in the Caesar's Palace (my favorite casino!!) Forum Shops. I just had to start from one end to the other to find it. My hubby said he waited an hour for me to be done inside the store, but I dont think I was in there for that long. lol 

I took a quick picture when I was leaving. I found myself almost ordering stuff from them at their online website since I first heard about them. I was hesistant since I hadnt seen their products in person. Its hard to tell how big the items are and how I will like the finishes/etc.  without seeing them firsthand. I ended up buying 6 shadows, 1 pigment, and 1 eye liner. It was hard to pick out colors. I would have bought the empty palette but too expensive. Ill look on ebay or amazon for one I can use.

I found the shadows to be a pretty decent size. They only cost $6 each. The pigment was $14.00 and the eyeliner was $12.00.

<a target="_blank" href="http://media4.onsugar.com/files/2013/05/18/270/n/11329888/a0854ac7ff6d6127_inglot9.jpg">

Price: $14

Pure Pigment Eye Shadow 82: Shimmery Bronze with pink sheen. Also when it hits the light you can see a gold duochrome. This color is sparkly and has minimal fallout.

I've been using mainly my beauty from the earth colors lately. Ive been neglecting my TBN shadows. I have used my UD Liners though a lot too. I need to get some of the new ones.

The Body Needs Haul January 2013

|
By cristalena56 · January 26, 2013
My order from TheBodyNeeds came in on Thursday. This was my order from their last sale.</p>

Sinful Blush: <span>Peachy Pink with a Gold Shimmer (This is a mineral dupe for Nars Orgasm. Ive not used the Nars one so I cant say how they compare.)

<p>

</p>

Party Girl Glitter: <span>Bubblegum Pink with Gold Sparkle EYE SAFE Glitter (color looks lighter and different on the site. It looks more like a hot pink in color but does apply more like Bubblegum pink.)


</span>

Heliotrope: <span>Shimmery Pink Purple Pearl (Similar to MAC Pink Pearl)


</span>

Irish Dreams: <span>Pale Pastel Green with a Gold Shimmer. (Seafoam Green) My favorite color of the bunch. 


</span>

Envious: <span>Deep Emerald Green Frost. It looks like the green used in Blackened Emerald. Also I couldnt seem to find this color on the site and was informed it was discontinued.


</span>

Shimmers Teal: Shimmery White that Reflects Teal (Its been cloudy so havent been able to get a reflection pic)

Nude: <span>Dark Beige Matte (Reminds me of the color of a Milk Chocolate smudge)


</span>

Blackened Maroon: <span>Deep Blackish Purple with Medium Frost
