AVAILABILITY: Makeup GeekWebsite
PRICE: $6.00 per pan
Makeup Geek's single eyeshadows comes in a pan form that is protected by a thick paper sleeve encased in a paper envelope. the packaging is very sturdy and protects the pan inside really well. Behind each pan there is a sticker label with the names of each eyeshadow on them. The pans are made of metal, so they can be placed in empty palettes such as Z-Palettes. They are the exact same size as MAC eyeshadows.

All the eyeshadows featured in this post are absolutely amazing and there isn't a single shade that I do not like. They are all very pigmented, soft and easy to blend. They all apply evenly and beautifully on the lids without being dusty and crumbly. The formula of the shimmery and metallic shadows has just the right softness. Corrupt (intense matte black) on the other hand is more on the dry and stiff side in terms of formula and texture but still perform and apply just as great as the shimmery and metallic ones.
Overall, I am very impressed with these eyeshadows and I highly recommend them to everyone. If you haven't yet go and get yourself a few. I promise, you won't be disappointed.
