Makeup Geek - Vegas Collection - Palette - Review & Swatches - Limited Edition
This review is on the Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Palette. Way back in August I believe it was I ended up picking up the Makeup Geek Vegas Collection, I got the full bundle pack which included five pigments and an eyeshadow palette. I was having issues with getting my lighting right for some odd reason as well as having some personal issues so I took an unplanned hiatus, now I'm back and hoping that nothing else interferes with me continually posting reviews!
Anyway onto the photos!
Swatched over UDPP in sunlight (Bada Bing also swatched over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy)
|Left to Right: Casino, Sin City, Roulette, Mirage, Desert Sands, Bada Bing|
My Rating: 10 out of 10 Feathers
Cost: $37.99 for 1.8G / 0.064 oz x6
Formula: Shimmery to satin/matte finishes, Talc and Paraben Free. *Cruelty Free
The Packaging: Sturdy cardboard palette with magnetic closure.
My Final Thoughts: The quality of the shadows is really good, the pigmentation is there on all of the shades. I found Bada Bing to be a drier shadow, the sparkles needs a sticky base to really show up (I used Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy) and I could really see the sparkles. The other 5 shadows are really creamy and smooth, a couple are a tiny (and I MEAN tiny) bit powdery but not in the cheap quality way more because of the finish since they lean more towards matte. I'm not normally a neutral kind of girl, but I really love all the shades in this palette. For Christmas I sported Sin City, Bada Bing, and Mirage for my makeup look and they were still holding strong 8 hours later with little to no creasing or fading.
Would I purchase again? Yes! The quality and color pay off is fantastic for the price point and is definitely a budget friendly alternative for high end brands. I really love the packaging, it's a convenient size for taking it on the go and has a really fun design. I also love that the shadows are magnetic and are not glued down making them easily removed so I can swap any out with another shade if I wanted to.
Do you own this? What are your thoughts?
