Makeup Geek Pigments Are Here!

Hi Makeup Geeks!

I am SO excited to announce the release of 10 new pigments!!  A few of these are dupes for MAC ones, but are less than half the cost.  I love how pigmented these are, smooth, and easy to apply.  My favorite way to use these are patting on the lid for a pop of shimmery and shine. You can also use a soft neutral one on top of the cheeks for a glow to the skin, or can even mix in with detangler or MAC’s Fix Plus spray to add shine to your hair. OH! You can mix with clear lipgloss to create a custom color! There’s so many use for these, so I will do a special video soon showing you how to use them :)

I would love to hear your feedback on these as these are formulated for all of you.  Thanks again for your continued support!

MUCH love,
Marlena and the Makeup Geek crew :)

Great Price Per Ounce and Reasonable Quantity

We wanted to find the best balance of having a good price per ounce without making the Makeup Geeks out there having to buy a large jar.   Each jar of Makeup Geek pigment contains about 2 grams of product (the jars are rated at 1.5 grams, that is on the box and label, but packed them full as you can tell from the photos below.
