Hey pretties! I’m so excited, guess what I got my hands on!?
If you guessed the Makeup Geek x Manny MUA Palette than you must be psychic. Or you can read titles. Either way, I’m proud of you. I was so excited to be able to pick up this palette and play with it. When Manny announced his collaboration with Makeup Geek I just about lost my ish. I love Manny and have been watching him for years on youtube; he’s a brilliant dude and I wish I could be half as talent as he is. Additionally, Makeup Geek eyeshadows have one of the best formulas on the market even without considering the affordable price tag. For $45, this palette offers 9 eyeshadows including 3 existing Makeup Geek eyeshadows (Beaches & Cream, Frappe, and Cosmopolitan) and 6 brand-new eyeshadows (Luna, Artemis, Sora, Aphrodite, Mars, and Insomnia).

This palette is awesome. My expectations completely meet. My only grip would have to be that the matter shadows in the palette are slightly chalky. This being said, I would pay the $45 just for Insomnia and Mars. Insomnia is a red (maroon?) foiled eyeshadow with blue reflects all through out it. It’s such a unique color that looks so gorgeous all over the lid. Mars is a redish/pinkish matte color that’s just slightly more pink than a standard cherry red. This is an amazing color to use with Insomnia to blend into the crease or use as a transition color. Again, such a unique color that totally (in my mind) justifies the purchase.

Overall, I’m so glad I picked this up. It’s definitely a palette that’s so different from anything else that I have. I highly recommend this to anyone who’s looking to mix things up with their eyeshadow choices or if you love Manny as much as I do. Hope this helps you decided where to spend your money and comment below if you want to see a tutorial for the eye look I put together!
Love ya bunches!- Prep
