If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (labellesirenexo) you may have seen a sneak peek of the newest additions to my makeup collection – Makeup Geek eyeshadows! I placed an order late last month and I waited anxiously until they arrived last week. Since then I have been dying to show you what shadows I bought and what they look like swatched.
I decided to hold off for a few days because I wanted to film a swatch video for my new Youtube channel – La Belle Sirene – but that video is now up – watch it here – so I wanted to post a more in depth look at each shadow on here!
In total I ordered 31 shadows and 3 pigments, all of which arrived safe and sound. I also ordered a Z palette to house the shadows and it was such a great idea. Opening all of the shadows and placing them in the palette was so much fun and such a great way to get to know which was which from sight alone. The pans are magnetic so they easily snapped onto the Z palette and once in place they felt secure and sturdy.
It took me quite a while to figure out which shadows I wanted to buy but I need up going with primarily neutral shades that I can do just about anything with. I also added a few pops of colour and of course a few fun shimmery shades. All 31 shades completely lived up to my expectations, they are incredibly pigmented, buttery smooth, easy to blend and all around beautiful. There was not one shade that didn’t blow me away with it’s intensity and formula. Here are swatches of the original formula shadows.
