I’ve been wanting to try Makeup Geek Cosmetics for awhile, and when I saw that they do these Mystery Boxes I was so intrigued. For $20 Makeup Geek will send you six items that equal up to a $50 value. The catch? You have absolutely no idea what you’ll be receiving until your box arrives. Typically, I’m not the type of person who likes surprises because I like to know exactly what the heck is going on! But, the deal was great and I really like the whole mystery concept. It’s a chance for me to finally try some Makeup Geek products, and have a little fun while doing it. The cool thing about getting mystery items, is that you may receive products that you yourself would have never picked out. It’s a great way to add a little something different to your makeup collection!
Now, one thing that I did know beforehand was that every item would most likely be some shade of Purple. The promo pictures were all purple along with the name of this Mystery Box, Passionate Purple. The actual box itself is very nice, and has the Makeup Geek Logo on the lid along with all over the box. It’s a very nice quality box and can be used to store makeup brushes, pens, or whatever else you can think up!
The box came with two full-size lip products, and four single eye shadows. The first lip product is Grapevine which is a Creme Stain. Normally, I’m not a fan of creme lip products but this one is gorgeous and is such a vibrant shade. One swipe, and it’s so opaque and gorgeous. I was very pleasantly surprised with this product. The next lip product is Savvy which is called an Iconic Lipstick. This shade is very pretty, and glides on so smoothly. There is a bit of transferring, but it’s very minimal. I love the packaging of both lip products, they have this purple and gold theme which is very cute. The first eyeshadow is Taboo which is a pressed matte eyeshadow in a deep purple. It’s almost like a deep brown with purple undertones. The texture is a little on the powdery side, and it definitely takes a little building up to get the true shade. It does blend very well, and is the perfect shade for a nice smokey eye. The next eyeshadow is Hype which is a gorgeous metallic shade that’s a lavender with pink undertones. The texture is very buttery, and this shade also takes a little building up to really see it’s full potential. I find this shade to be one of those that would look different on everyone, depending on your skin tone. Vintage is the next shade, and it is a matte eyeshadow that’s mauve with slightly brown tones to it. It’s a very gorgeous shade that can be used with neutral looks or can be built up for a softer full glam! This shade is definitely very versatile, and can be worn a number of ways. The final shade is Blacklight which has a duochrome finish and is a highly pigmented shade. This shade is probably the most pigmented out of the four shades I received. I’ve never used a duochrome finish before, but it’s so velvety and pigmented. The best way to describe this shade is like an electric purple with blue undertones. It’s super pretty, especially when the light hits the shimmers just right. Blacklight is definitely a very fun shade that I can see using for some really cool looks.
Overall, I’m very pleased with all of the products that I recieved in my first Makeup Geek Cosmetics Mystery Box! I will definitely be keeping my eye out for some of their next Mystery Boxes. Have any of ya’ll tried any Makeup Geek Cosmetics Products or one of their Mystery Boxes? Take a look at the swatches, and let me know your favorite shades! My favorite lip shade out of the two is probably, Grapevine. And, if I had to pick a favorite shadow it’d be Blacklight or Vintage.
Until next time,
