Two New Makeup Geek Eyeshadows: Pixie Dust & Bitten

I have been busy working on rounding out the “color library” of the Makeup Geek eyeshadows and I am happy to announce two new shades: Pixie Dust and Bitten.

Many of you have been waiting for a while for Pixie Dust as we included the color in some of the other color swatches and also mentioned it in my Top 10 Green Eyeshadow Picks.  Bitten is also a much-needed deep red to fill in our lineup.   And for the first time at the launch of the color, we have both a pan and a compact version available at the same time.

I have to say I’ve been very excited to see this one come out of production so I can share it with you.  It is such a beautfiul shade, you really have to see it in person to fully experience it.  It is a beautiful lime green that has just the right amount of shimmer to it (not glittery).  It is absolutely stunning in the sunlight.  I pair this up with Dirty Martini and Envy for a full-on green look.   If you’d like to see it in action, here’s a preview of me using it in the soon-to-be-released Watermelon-inspired look tutorial (teamed up with Razzleberry). When comparing to our existing colors, Pixie Dust’s closest cousin is Fuji.  However, Pixie Dust is more of a lime color (with more of a yellow-like tint).  Also Fuji is a matte shadow while Pixie Dust is a shimmer.

While we have a few good red-like colors in our lineup like Burlesque, Last Dance, and Razzleberry, they all have at least a bit of shimmer to them.  Bitten, on the other hand, is a matte shadow.  It also happens to be quite pigmented.  It’s difficult to formulate red eyeshadows to be especially pigmented.  It took a couple revisions in the lab to get this one just right.  I think you matte shadow fans will fall in love with this one.  As far as color goes, it is very similar to Burlesque, but it has a bit more of a red tone to it and just a little lighter in color.
