I’ve always heard good things about makeup geek eyeshadows but not having open palettes like a Z-palette or others that are similar. Since I now own open palettes I was able to finally purchase a few of these. I tried to pick colors that I do not already have from another company or of course if it’s a duochrome I need it. I landed on six shadows to start with. BlackLight comes off as a lavender duochrome shade with ice blue reflects, Shore thing which is a matte sea foam green/mint color, Fuji which is a matt warm lime green (though lime might not be the correct shade to reference), Masquerade which is a foiled plum which comes off as more of a pinky purple shade it has warm undertones. Rockstar is a duochrome silver with purple/pink reflects and Bleached blonde is a shimmery pale gold.


As most people mention the shades are pretty buttery however I do have fall out with these but to excess. The payoff is pretty good, I’ve found them to be buildable and they of course look brighter and bolder with a base color (NYX pencil in Milk). These are going to be fun shades to play with for the summer as I want to broaden my makeup skillset and do some more fun looks. So stay tuned!
