Shade Description:

  • Kryptonite is described as Moss Green shade but I would go for army green shade with metallic to shimmer finish. Loving this shade of green as this color is my favorite since childhood.
  • Enchanted is now one of my favorite shade in purples. This is a beautiful plum shade with a very smooth shimmer finish.
  • Nightlife is a light brown shimmer shade and I am sure everyone of us tend to collect more earthy tones than brights at a certain point and this would be a great addition in the collection.
  • Paparazzi has so many personalities. It is a dark grey to blackish shade with glitter that reflect light in various different colors and to be honest, no matte what I did, my lens could not capture the beauty my eye could see. A must have shade if you ask me.
  • New Year's Eve is the lightest gold there could possibly be. It is a gorgeous shimmer shade that can look evenly good if used as an highlighter for face & body. Oh and as the name suggests, you gotta own this for the New Year's Eve. 


Overall Experience:
Since my last review on Makeup Geek Pigments [click to read that], Marlena and team have come up with more shades and they did it again. Love at first use!

As you can see in swatches, some shades look fine without primer but like previous pigments I tried by MUG, they start to crease on my oily lids really quickly and intensity weights down too. The primer I used for these swatches is Professional Eye Primer by MUA.

[ I will be quoting my previous review here as my views about these are same as previous three pigments that I tried. ]

All of these are highly pigmented and go onto the lids pretty smoothly  Since they are loose pigments, one cannot complain about fall outs until or unless used in really tiny amount and applied super carefully.

Quick Tip: Use pigments using a wet brush to have minimum fall outs or if you prefer to use dry brush with pigments like I do, tap off the access product and apply them over an eye primer or eye shadow base so they will stick. Plus, always stay on the safe side and do rest of the makeup after you are done using pigments on your eyes.

I have oily lids and I almost always use pigments and shadows over an eye primer but for these I tried them with and without eye primer, here are the results;

  • Without an eye primer, they go onto the lids just fine but start to crease in about thirty minutes. They start to tone down in about one-two hours and by the end of fourth hour, they were almost gone. Plus, since I used them for full coverage, I noticed fall outs later in the day even after I cleaned up under the eyes.
  • With an eye primer, they go onto the lids just fine but I can visibly see how beautiful they stick to the lids resulting in less fall outs during application. They did not crease or toned down for over six hours and I believe that they will stay onto my eyes for over eight good hours. Plus, I did not notice any fall out later in the day.
Overall, I am loving these pigments. My personal favorite out of these five is New Year's Eve, you can use this in many different ways. Formula, texture and staying time is great for all of these.

Each Makeup Geek Pigment costs $6.99 and can be bought online from Makeup Geek's website. They ship worldwide at affordable rates.
