Stop.What.You’re.Doing. Christmas has come early.
The £5 eyeshadows that ARE BETTER than MAC are now available on UK soil. No more postage, no more two week waits and most importantly, no more extortionate customs charges.
If you’re a youtube addict, chances are you’ve come across MakeUp Geek Founder Marlena. She’s been tubin’ for years and launched her own line MakeUp Geek – luxury cosmetics at affordable prices. The hype surrounding their eyeshadows is completely justified. They look a lot like MAC but they’re loads cheaper, and wait for it….. better!
I ordered Mocha, Cocoa Bear, Latte, Hipster and Vanilla Bean earlier in the year and was blown away by their quality (full review here). Super rich, intensely pigmented, true, vivid colours, exquisitely blendible and super long lasting. And all this for $5.99 each! WOW. The only downside – ordering form the US meant a two week wait, $9 delivery charge and £12 customers charge. Well no more! Our very own Beauty Bay are now selling MUGs eyeshadows (from £4.95), pigments and blushes. Whoop, bloody whoop! Off I go to fill my palette. Next on my wish list - Prom Night, Shimma Shimma and Creme Brulee.
