So, it’s the beginning of January, December’s credit card bill was absolutely terrifying, and January will involve meals of dry bread and water. And what do the shops do? They decide that now would be a good time to reduce all stock by 99% and are practically begging us to spend more, more, more!! Now, if you are like me then you will go ‘sod the sales, I am going to find the ONE item that is still full price and buy THAT instead’. Yeah, good thinking. So, seeing that Beauty Bay are now stocking Makeup Geek (Excuse me, but when did this happen, and why did no-one inform me?) I thought I would do a little non-sale shopping.
Being a YouTube beauty tutorial addict, I have had it drummed in to my brain that Makeup Geek and Morphe eyeshadows are most excellent. I admit, I am a sucker for eyeshadows, so it doesn’t take much persuasion for me to add more to my – slightly sickening – collection.
I decided on three ‘normal’ Makeup Geek eyeshadow pans (£4.95 each here); one Foiled Makeup Geek eyeshadow pan (£7.95 each here); and one Duo Chrome Makeup Geek eyeshadow pan (£4.95 each here). The Morphe single eyeshadow selection is fairly limited (£1.95 each here), so I only purchased one.
To hold all these beautiful little pans, I have this smart Z Palette (£8.95 here). This is the small size and will hold up to 9 pans of this size, it even comes with some magnetic stickers if you wanted to de-pot some existing blushers or eyeshadows.
Other than swatching, I haven’t had a chance to play with the shadows properly, but I plan to in the coming days. Going by the swatches, I doubt I will be disappointed, but come back soon for a full review.
Have you tried any Makeup Geek, or Morphe? Do you love them, or are they not worth the YouTube hype?*This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your continued support of Joyful Things!*
