New Makeup Geek Eyeshadows: Bling, Last Dance, and Homecoming

Hi MUGs!  Marlena and the Makeup Geek team have been working hard to keep new colors our the Makeup Geek eyeshadows flowing.   We would like to have more colors just as much as you would, but Marlena is dedicated to make sure the colors and formula is just right for each one before we start selling them.

This week, we have three new colors availible: Bling, Last Dance, and Homecoming.   All three are subtle, but beautiful in their own right and we think you’ll easily fall in love with them.


Bling’s closest sibling is our incredibly-popular Shimma Shimma.   This great highlighting shadow is very similar to Shimma Shimma but has a cooler tint to it.  When you put the two of them side-by-side, Shimma Shimma has a bit of a peachy look to it, while Bling is more or a cool, creamy shade.

(Buy Bling in the Makeup Geek Store)



Homecoming is a medium purplish-brown with a subtle golden shimmer.  It is in the same family as our popular Moondust shadow — when compared side-by-side to Moondust, it is apparent that Homecoming is a warmer, burgundy tint while Moondust has a cooler, blue-purple tint.   Of course, the tints are very subtle as both shadows are elegant shades that are accents to a glamorous neutral look.

Last Dance

If you want a shadow that has more of a burgundy or plum color while still being subtle, Last Dance will be a perfect fit for you.   A deeper burgundy shade would be Makeup Geek’s Burlesque.  Both shades are similar, but as mentioned before, Burlesque is deeper and has a bit more shimmer.

To help you see the shadows in action and to more easily compare them to the rest of the Makeup Geek lineup, here’s a couple sets of swatches for you

Hi Makeup Geeks! I actually co-founded Makeup Geek with Marlena and I've been running the business and technical side of the site ever since.


Comments are now closed on this article.

I just finished purchasing the rest of the MUG eye shadows this past weekend and realized I ordered these colors, too! They are all so beautiful! I’m looking forward to when the lipsticks and other makeup products are released!! Keep up the great work!

I’ve been wondering if you are going to release some bright-coloured eyeshadows? I mean, all of the neutral MUG eyeshadow are of course REALLY gorgeous, but it would be nice to have some bright colours to play with :) Especially pink ones whick usually lack pigmentation :3

<3 MUG!

You have a point — that’s how our photographer had them labeled, but perhaps we need to retake those to make sure…

I have loved reading the reviews of makeupgeek eyeshadows and brushes and will purchase some the next time payday comes round for myself and my friend in Hong Kong. I would however love it if the swatches could be done on a variety of different skin tones so that I could see if the colours would suit us.

We’re not really sure — we’ll announce when we have a better idea from our manufacturer. They are in the queue to have the printing applied to the tubes.

so happy to see new eyeshadow colours out! these have become my makeup addiction i can’t help myself each time new colours come out i have to buy them! keep up the great work guys! :)

I’m dying to get the rest I the shadows!!! I just ordered them on Friday!!! I will defineitly be buying all the cream shadows as well!!! I can’t wait really for the whole line of cosmetics! I just LOVE MUG!!! Thank you for everything that you are all doing! Much Love,xo

I got all 3 of these in the mail today and I’m doing a look with all 3 right now lol. Can you tell I was excited? I also used some vanilla bean. But anyway, these three shades are sooo gorgeous! Bling will be my second most used daily shade I can tell already for highlighting, I have been using Shimma Shimma almost everyday but bling is similar but a little more on the white almost silver side, and it’s simply amazing. Love love love it. Homecoming i used on the lid and last dance on the outer corner/crease. All the colors looked so great together. Really pigmented and smooth. I know have a z pallette and a half of mug shadows and I can’t even stop. Keep up the good work guys! I am in love! <3
