Review & Swatches: Makeup Geek Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette


Makeup Geek Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette

Maybe it's the native Texan inside, but when it came to try my first Makeup Geeks products, I decided to go big or go home. I wanted to try a nice mix of neutrals and bolds from the brand, so I picked up the Ultimate Palette! Complete with 27 shades and a large Z-palette, this set of shadows has just about everything - a mix of colors, textures, and a palette to store them all in. The shadows included are:


  • Appletini –  Shimmery Apple green with flecks of gold
  • Bada Bing –  Deep Brown with flecks of gold
  • Beaches & Cream –  Creamy Matte Natural Beige with Just A Hint of Peach
  • Bitten –  Matte deep maroon red
  • Brown Sugar –  Warm Shimmery copper brown
  • Cocoa Bear –  Matte golden brown
  • Corrupt –  Intense matte black with a very subtle sparkle
  • Cosmopolitan –  Rose Gold with gold flecks and a shimmery finish
  • Country Girl –  Shimmery pink brown
  • Drama Queen –  A densely dark purple with a shimmery finish
  • Envy –  Deep metallic green
  • Gold Digger –  True metallic gold
  • Graphite –  Light graphite grey with flecks of silver
  • Last Dance –  Satin medium to deep plummy brown
  • Mermaid –  Metallic teal with reflects gold
  • Moondust –  Metallic silver taupe
  • Ocean Breeze –  Metallic deep green/blue
  • Peach Smoothie –  A light peach beige with a soft matte finish
  • Pixie Dust –  Shimmery Lime green
  • Poolside –  Bright shimmery teal with specks of gold
  • Pretentious –  Metallic bronze
  • Sensuous –  Shimmery Purple with Flecks of Silver
  • Shimma Shimma –  Metallic Champagne
  • Simply Marlena –  Rosey pink with purple undertone and gold flecks
  • Twilight –  Pale Shimmery Muted Purple
  • Unexpected –  Matte Pale Pink Brown
  • Vanilla Bean –  Light Shimmer with Peachy Beige Undertone


Because this palette is jam-packed, I'll spare you the minor details and just say this: they are fantastic! The mattes are smooth, pigmented, and wonderfully buildable - great for all over wear, or blending shades in the crease. The shimmery shadows are seriously pigmented, with buttery textures, and ultra-fine glimmer. The only shade I would call outright glittery is Bada Bing - a matte deep chocolate brown with gold flecks. The base is smooth, and I didn't encounter any fallout with the glitter!

Most won't need all of the shades in this palette, but I would certainly recommend them. Luckily, you can purchase them for $5.99 individually - $7.99 if you would prefer they come in a compact. So pick and choose which shadows most appeal to you to create a completely customize, yet super affordable palette!
