Makeup Geek Eyeshadows!

Yes. I spazz.
Only cos they're FINALLY here!

I actually ordered them from MakeupGeek last DECEMBER and they finally came YESTERDAY (10th February).

I took the first class US international postal service and it said that I should give them about 4-6 weeks. So 4-6 weeks came and went and I had not seen them at all.
So of course I emailed them and enquired about where my eyeshadows were and they asked me to give them another week.

So i waited, only cos i THOUGHT hey i ordered it before Xmas and it was during CNY that I was expecting them to come in.
Still no sign lor!

Then the nice people at MakeupGeek told me that it probably got lost.
So! They shipped me a new one at NO EXTRA CHARGE!
Thanks guys! I love u!

They mailed it out on the 30th of Jan and i received it yesterday!

I did some unboxing yesterday with LOTS of photos!

i got EIGHT quality eyeshadows (some even better than MAC or UD) for USD 45.

Now some of you may be gasping at the price and thinking: "This girl is MAD!"

BUT think about it...

That's only SGD7.10 PER SHADOW!

And a MAC one easily costs more than that.

Now I LOVE these shadows.

They are creamy, super pigmented and buttery.

They are very blend-able and give really good colour pay-off.

I did a look with the shadows yesterday and i loved it.

I dare say the colours are a little better than my UD Naked Palette! *gasp*

L to R

Shimma Shimma (shimmer), Purely naked (matte), Glamorous (shimmer), Unexpected (matte), Cocoa Bear (matte), Mocha (matte), Purple Rain (matte) and Corrupt (matte)

*look at the black!*

But anyone who knows me should know that I loooooovvveee my neutrals and my browns and golds. =D

And OMG the black a.k.a CORRUPT is so DARK!

Even after rubbing it off my hand there was still residue on the back of my hand!

The colours had really awesome names like Corrupt, Cocoa Bear, Shimma shimma, Purely naked, Glamorous, Mocha, Unexpected and Purple Rain.

They fit into a ZPalette perfectly. I got my zebra print one from Shopping District. My new fave online makeup store!

The packaging that it came in was really nice.

It was in these individual sleeves like the ones MAC pro shadows come in.

The only thing that I wished for was that it came in its OWN palette instead of me having to get one on my own.

But that's not a big problem.

What else?

Oh and they're just a LITTLE bigger than your normal MAC individual shadows! So you're really getting your $$'s worth.

When i got this all the other colours were not out yet.
Marlena aka MakeupGeek had not finished with the other colours yet.
But now she has MORE!

So for those of you ITCHING to go and get these shadows and other interesting colours she has listed on her website...

Now I know that I have not been tagged but I have always wanted to do this beauty blogging.

I know I am uber-obsessed with makeup and beauty products since i was 18.

So i just wanted to share and find out about YOUR items in your beauty bag/toiletry bag that some of you may carry in your handbag everyday.
