When it comes to eye makeup, I’ve always been more of an eyeliner girl than an eyeshadow girl. Black and brown liner has always just seemed safer than a wildly colored palette.
But the moment I first saw the Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadow pans, I just knew this would be the product that would make me see the light. And boy oh boy, was I right! For starters, eyeshadow is so much easier to apply than eyeliner; why had I been holding out for so long?!
Application aside, these shadows are nothing short of stellar. Not only are the colors super pigmented and long-lasting, but they go on so smooth and lightweight that you basically feel like you have nothing on. I also love that you can play with layer to create a look that’s more subtle for work or more dramatic for a night out. If you love eyeshadow–or you’re just a beginner like me–you need one of these pans in your beauty bag.
I tested a few of the more adventurous shades, but I have to say the metallics (Grandstand, Magic Act, In The Spotlight) are my faves for every day. Paired with a little black eyeliner and mascara, they open up the eye and brighten up your face like magic. I’m hooked!
