Makeup Geek Review

Hi friends,
Here is a followup blog post to my Makeup Geek Review video I posted on VitaleStyle. The items I ordered from the MUG line are some lipsticks, eye shadow pigments and quite a few of her regular eye shadows. 
The lipsticks I purchased came in a set and I must admit, the colors and formula of these are a lot better than I was expecting. The shades that came in this set are Fearless, Captivating, Famous, Luscious and Lavish (swatched down below in that order) I love pretty much every color, I will however say that I wish a light pink/nude shade came in this set as well (or replace one of the darker colors). It would have been lovely to have an everyday very wearable color to reach for when you're going for more of a natural look. I will be checking the MUG website for more lipsticks to try because I love these and would like to try a few more!

The next items I picked up were these pigments, let me just start off by saying that these colors are absolutely gorgeous!! I love every color I ordered and I will be ordering a few more to add to my collection. The packaging is nice, nothing crazy but I'm OK with that because often times, a company will charge you an arm and a leg for a mediocre product just because of the fancy packaging. The only little issue I have with these (it's not stopping me from ordering more so you know I think they are good) is that each one is so full of product (not a bad thing) that as soon as you open them, the product does kind of go everywhere and makes a bit of a mess, I would have loved for these to have some kind of stopper or something that made it a bit easier to control the product. The specific shades I got are Enchanted, Sweet Dreams, Birthday Wish and Afterglow (swatched below in that order).

And now on with the shadows. I was really shocked at the pigmentation and formula of these shadows, I am going to be very honest and tell you that from the price, I was expecting these to have the same look and feel of shadows like BH Cosmetics or Costal Scents (I don't dislike those shadows but they aren't the best quality in my opinion) these on the other hand, had the look and feel of a mac shadow and in some cases, the pay off on some of these shadows is better than mac shadows.As you can see I have quite a few of them and I reach for them constantly (especially cocoa bear and beaches and cream) they are easy to apply, hardly any fallout (no more fallout than any other shimmery eye shadow) and how beautifully they blend. These are worth every penny and I can't wait to get more! My Z palette didn't come with my eye shadows, I purchased mine from Amazon.com.

Here are a few of the shadows swatched on my hand (I did not edit any of these pictures by the way, the pictures were taken right in front of my studio light) and as you can see, the colors are gorgeous and pigmented!  
Here is the list of colors I own

Brown Sugar
Home Coming
Purely Naked
Beaches And Cream
Taupe Notch
Bleached Blonde
Cocoa Bear
Creme Brulee
Shimma Shimma
Peach Smoothie
Prom Night
Drama Queen

 Overall I have to say that I am thrilled with my purchases and aside from the packaging of the pigments, I give these products a 10! Great product at a fantastic price!

  2. Hi Laura, I love your channels. Very helpful. I have a question on hair washing. I workout every morning and my head and hair roots get really sweaty. I feel like rinsing my hair every day (I use shampoo every other day) but that ruins my hair style and i would have to use heat again. Since you do rigorous workout every morning and shower twice every day, can you please let me know what is your usual routine? Do you wet your hair every morning after workout? Grateful for any advice. Lots of love.

My first post was about you so hopefully you'll check it out (and anyone else that would like to)...and thank you for inspiring a lot of people to follow their dreams!

  6. I love your channels. terribly useful. I even have an issue on hair laundry. I physical exertion each morning and my head and hair roots get extremely wet. I desire removal my hair a day (I use shampoo each alternative day) however that ruins my coiffure and that i would got to use heat once more. Since you are doing rigorous physical exertion each morning and shower double a day, are you able to please let ME recognize what's your usual routine? does one wet your hair each morning once workout? Grateful for any recommendation. numerous love.
