Makeup Geek Review

Standard

Hi everybody!! (In my  Dr. Nicks voice)

 

I wanted to come back with a bang and give a review on the sought after makeup line called Makeup Geek. I purchased a few of the eye shadows from this line a while ago and was floored by the quality and the price of the items I bought. Four shadows of great quality only cost me $20 with about $3.99 additionally for shipping.

I purchased the Spring Expansion Kit which came with

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Pan - Lemon Drop   Lemon Drop Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Pan - Mango Tango   Mango Tango Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Pan - Pixie Dust Pixie Dust      Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Pan - Fairytale  Fairytale

 

Great spring colors that match well together or can be worn separately with other colors. If you haven’t heard about this brand or done any research I highly advise you to take a look into it!

Check out Makeup Geek Cosmetics and its founder Marlena! Great budget friendly products that rival the higher end budget! Along with checking out the web site…. Link below!

Mommy Makeup Mineral Bronze-n-Blush Review

Standard

A few months back I began working with affiliates to provide banner content and discount codes for my fellow readers. As an avid makeup enthusiast I am always looking for a great product to use not only on myself but on clients as well. I was excited to hear from one of my affiliates that they would gladly provide a product from their line for me to review for my followers.

Mommy Makeup was started by Debra Rubin-Roberts, a Makeup Artist and Mom of 2, who realized that there are way too many steps to apply makeup to create a flawless face. The Mommy Makeup line was invented to minimize the steps and time taken to apply your makeup and create the finish look. By reducing 13 individual products down to 6 multitasking ones, she has in my opinion effectively changed how I see makeup application.

After intently searching the Mommy Makeup website and looking all the at all the products offered I decided to go with a product that was for every shade and skin type available. I choose the Mineral Bronze-n-Blush Pressed Duo. The package is cute, depicting a mother pushing a child in a stroller as she’s applying her makeup on the go. Basically every on the go mother, multitasking to get several things done at one time.

The Mineral Bronze-n-Blush Duo only comes in one shade with the line Nice-n-Natural, promoted as suitable for every shade. Now I must admit, upon testing this on my hand in a swatch I wasn’t too impressed with it at first. I thought the blush was too light, not enough to show on darker skin tones. The bronzer, I felt there was just something missing.  Though beautiful in the right light I wasn’t overly impressed, until I used them. Boy, Oh boy was I wrong!

Not only does it contour with ease and give a nice warm to the face, it creates a nice wash of color to the cheeks as well. The photos shown here are of two different days  but still the use of the Mineral Bronze-n-Blush Duo. Pared with a highlight it creates a stunning look.  Whether it’s more natural or dramatic, you can use this duo to achieve a great look. I hope I did this justice! I can’t wait to try out the other products!
