NEW Makeup Geek Eyeshadows and a Fun Summer Look

 

Hello Makeup Geeks, I am so excited to bring you these newest additions to our line of eyeshadows. :-) I have been working hard to get the formulation just perfect so you can have amazing quality. We have 5 new colors along with one that has been in the store for a while. I am most excited about the shade “Cosmopolitan“, it is an exact dupe for MAC’s “Expensive Pink” with richer quality and higher pigmentation.

As always, we wanted to add to our line of neutrals while bringing you more interesting shades. We also have one inspired by Marlena’s favorite color, raspberry pink to add to our collections of pinks. With a great combinations of shimmers and mattes, you are sure to find more than one to love.

Hi Marlena! I love the new colors, especially cosmo! it looks like a powder version of the Maybelline eyes studio cream shadows in rose revolution. Can I ask you for a favor………..please make a dupe for an eyeshadow that is not sold separately and just in a quad. The brand is e.l.f. and it’s a small quad and it is called teal dream. The color I’m talking about is the one in between the blue and the champagne color. I haven’t been able to find a color like this and it is super beautiful on my skin. Thanks so much!
