Makeup Geek Wish List

I have been seeing more and more of Makeup Geek’s Shadows around in YouTube tutorials and on blogs. In case you aren’t familiar, Makeup Geek (Marlena) is a beauty guru over on YouTube. You can check out here channel here. She was one of the first beauty gurus I followed on YouTube.

Within the last year or so, her makeup has really worked it’s way onto the market and I am itching to try it out. I can’t say that I am a MAC girl, unlike one of my friends who is a loyal MAC lover. I’ve heard rave reviews about MUG’s shadows and how they are dupes for a lot of the MAC shadows. MUG did a video on her channel you can check out here, but if you’re worried about it being biased, here is another review as well.


MUG shadows run for $5.99 each vs. MAC’s $10. A $4 saving per single for say a 9 pan Z Palette…you’re already at a $36 savings. I picked out the 9 shadows I would want to try out of the 60+ offered. Picking shadows is so easy  because there are swatches of every single color.

Have any of you tried these shadows? What are your favorites? Any MAC eyeshadows you swear by?

Please let me know in the comments below!

    MAC – woodwinked eyeshadow is one of my favourites and is so beautiful on the eyelids! X
