I got the Makeup Geek Pigments and I decided to do a makeup review to show you all how amazing these puppies are. I am not a huge fan of pigments because in general they move to much around the eye area, but to be honest this only happens with pigments which are not HQ like MAC or Sugarpill. I honestly wasn’t expecting this good quality from Makeup Geek, I don’t know why I wasn’t since I love and only use their and Sigma Beauty eye shadows for all my gigs. I guess I love to be surprised and never expect HQ from a product unless they prove me wrong. Besides that their is no current makeup geek coupon code 2013
Makeup Geek Pigments Makeup Review
For this makeup review I will first tell you how Makeup Geek Pigments are described on their website. They are described as a soft and creamy texture with a shimmery finish. Some of the pigments can be used as highlighter and some add that special warmth and touch for a dark smokey eye. They are highly-pigmented and the pigments are cruelty-free. The pigments can be shipped worldwide and are sold for an affordable price. Overall the description is fine and very similar to most pigments online.
Makeup Geek Pigments Makeup Review Pros & Cons
Now my two cents for this makeup review of Makeup Geek Pigments. I got all the pigments and the shades and the texture truly is soft and I can even say very soft. the pigmentation of the pigments is crazy good. Honestly my pictures do not justify the pigmentation. I do not photo-shop my pictures but do take pictures in natural sunlight. The Makeup Geek Pigments come in 10 beautiful unique shades. Some of the pigments are for real duo-chrome that you see on touch and even in the shade. I cannot even start to explain how awesome these pigments are. I hope that Makeup Geek comes out with more shades. The quality is very much comparable to MAC and Sugarpill. The jars are jam packed with pigments so open them very slowly. The jars are very sturdy and close well so no pigments will pour out.
Makeup Review Makeup Geek Pigments Conclusion
To conclude this makeup review of Makeup Geek Pigments, I would like to add that the jar contains 2 grams of product even thou it was intended for 1.5 grams so when you open the jar make sure you do this slowly since you will spill some out. This is probably the only thing I didn’t like about the pigments. I wish that the jar was bigger so that it wasn’t filled to the top so that I could open it with less caution. Basically the jar is packed fully! Below I will full describe each shade and mark in red my favorite shades. Check out the makeup geek video review for a bit more details ans stay tune for future makeup geek coupons 2013.
I will be doing a makeup tutorial using the pigments very soon.

MAKEUP GEEK PIGMENTS AND DESCRIPTIONS
Makeup Geek Pigment New Years Eve – Light Gold Reflective Glitter. This is a perfect shade which can be used to weddings, everyday makeup, and as a highlighter for fair – light skin. Beautiful finish and soft texture.
Makeup Geek Pigment Afterglow – Soft Shimmery Champagne – a true soft champagne color that is not only perfect for bridal (wedding) makeup, but is also ideal for a subtle everyday makeup look. This shade will really make your eyes pop. Can also be used as a highlighter for very fair – medium skin.
Makeup Geek Pigment Sweet Dreams – Light fleshed toned beige pink with slight shimmer – a beautiful shade that truly is similar to a nice beige skin tone. Another shade that is ideal for day makeup, bridal and any event to be honest. This too can be used as a subtle highlighter on very fair – medium skin tones.
Makeup Geek Pigment Liquid Gold – True Metallic Gold – This shade reminds me of golden statues. This in my personal opinion is the perfect gold shade and is ideal for a smokey eye or if you just love golden shades of makeup.
Makeup Geek Pigment Enchanted – Light Plum Shimmer – This is one of my all time perfect shade for green, brown, hazel and black eyes and even blue. This is probably a shade that suits all eye colours and makes them stand out. A perfect shade for smokier eye makeup. If you want your eyes to stand out and you have a darker shade of eyes, then this is a must have shade! The picture below does not justify the shade.
Makeup Geek Pigment Birthday Wish – Shimmery Light Gold Peach – This picture below does not even pick up on how beautiful the shade is. Another shade for blue, green and gray shades that will make your eyes stand out. Perfect shade to make your eyes pop without doing dramatic makeup. Must have for lighter eyes shades.
Makeup Geek Pigment Utopia – An Antiqued Gold Glitter – Out of all my swatches pictures this picture of the swatch is not even close as to how awesome this shade is in real life. the picture of the pigment in the jar is a better example. Don’t be fooled but the “chunky” glitter. When you apply the glitter is all blends like butter and sticks like crazy. this is the perfect old olive undertone gold pigment glitter. Must have shade for all eye colours.
Makeup Geek Pigment Paparazzi – Glittery Smokey Grey – As soon as I hit pan, this is a pigment that I am restocking on ASAP. The swatch does it not justice. The picture of the pigment in the jar (on the far left) is closer to what it looks like when swatched. This is THE perfect pigment for black smokey eyes.
Makeup Geek Pigment Prince Charming – Metallic Cool Silver – I wish I had this pigment when I was doing one of my robot halloween makeup looks. This pigment is truly a beautiful cool silver shade that is perfect for blue eyes.
Makeup Geek Pigment Insomnia – A Duochromed Teal/Bronze – Aaa save this guy for last. My most loved shade out of the whole bunch. I guess I am a sucker for duo-chromed teal bronze shades. This puppy duo-chromes without light. I mean you see the effect even when not on direct sunlight. I highly recommend this shade fo all eye shades.
