Hello Beauties,

I know I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus, but I am back with a new design and a new format! As the title states, today is Splurge Saturday!  I know this blog is mainly about drugstore brand items and not breaking the bank supporting your makeup habit, but I think everyone deserves to splurge every now and then.  Today’s Splurge Saturday is featuring Makeup Geek eye shadows that I’ve recently purchased.

I had Makeup Geek eye shadows on my wishlist for about a year. I watched several beauty vloggers use them and rave about how awesomeness of this product.  Well now that I have them in my possession, I must agree!

It was very difficult trying to decide which shadows to pick.  Luckily for me, I was able to purchase the Makeup Geek Ultimate Palette which contained 27 shadows plus a beautiful custom Makeup Geek Large Z Palette.

I also purchased a single eyeshadow named Stealth.  It is a matte gray shadow that I had to have because I had nothing like it in my collection.  All of the eye shadows came individually packaged  so I was able to arrange them however I wanted in the Z Palette.

MUG BackThis palette was a steal at $159.99! If purchased separately, I would have paid over $160 for the eye shadows alone. Makeup Geek is at a price point that is slightly above what you will find in the drugstore, but well below higher end brands such as MAC.  The eye shadows are a good price, $5.99 each, without sacrificing quality.

I tried the eye shadows out for the first time on Thanksgiving.  I first applied my makeup around noon and I did not remove it until after midnight.  My makeup looked the same, if not better, in the evening when I returned home.

Overall I have to say that Makeup Geek has a new fan! I already have other items (the new foiled shadows) on my wishlist, hopefully you will see them on a future Splurge Saturday soon!
