Must have for makeup geeks!
If you're new to makeup geek or new to makeup in general- look no further! This kit started my love affair with makeup geek cosmetics. The colors are beautiful and the quality is great and you CANNOT beat the price. I especially love creme brûlée. I use that shade. Every. DAY. That shade, peach smoothie and frappe are MY JAM right now.

Very Happy
I had wanted to try some Makeup Geek eyeshadows for a little while but being international (shipping and conversion fees) I was hesitant. Then when I saw day 1 of the 12 days of christmas sale I took that opportunity! I placed my order on 02/12, it was shipped on 06/12 and arrived at my house in Melbourne, Australia today on 15/12. I haven't worn these on my eyes yet but from the swatches I can say I am very pleased with the pigmentation and texture of these shadows. Although it doesn't include every shadow you might need for a full look this kit does have the basics and I can see myself using all of these! I don't usually wear cool tone shadows but prom night is beautiful and can't wait to use it with unexpected! The shimmery shades did swatch better than the mattes but that is expected. Shimma shimma swatched the best out of them all and is the most perfect shimmery champagne ever! I will be purchasing more colours in the future, but maybe from the BeautyBay website Marlena has collaborated with and they have free shipping for Australian orders. Hope this helps :) xx

My Daily Kit
So thankful I got these. This is my go to kit. And I just have to use this one for almost every eye look, esp if I'm using colors like hudini or Utopia.

I was blown away with these shadows! their so pigmented ad easy to blend. the colours are also such variety they range from unique to basic which is great. I love how affordable they are and how well the shipping was! I live in Canada and It took about two weeks for my order and nothing was broken or missing! Ill defiantly be dropping a lot of money on this brand!

Not Flattering For All Skin Tones
This was very disappointing and a major regret. I could not get ant of these shades to work for my skin tone. You also can not return or exchange any of their products so purchase carefully!! I wish you could exchange :-( I don't think I'll buy from MUG again.

Beautiful Colors
This was my first purchase from MUG. I've watched YouTube videos of Marlena and loved her looks. Thought I would get the starter pack since it has all the colors that I would use. And now I use it every day. I need more MUG colors! So pigmented and they stay on all day. A must have!

Love! Perfect Starter Kit!
This was my first makeup geek purchase and I am so glad I have this! All the colors are amazing and versatile. The perfect first purchase to try the brand. All of the shades are pigmented, soft, buttery and blend like a dream! I will never use another brand again!

Not For Women Of Color!
I watched dozens of reviews on YT before I purchased 10 shadows. They all had wonderful reviews about being very pigmented and creamy. So I decided to go ahead and make the purchase after weeks of research. Not to mention I love Marlena but the claim that these shadows are good for any skin tone is a LIE! I am a caramel brown, NC 50 to be exact. The only colors that show up on me and look decent are corrupt obviously, cocoa bear, and mocha. The rest of the shades look so ashy and dusty and there is so much fall out. I used urban decay primer, painterly primer and even concealer as a primer and nothing worked. No wonder they are so cheep. These don't even stand a chance against MAC. I'm highly disappointed. Try a better formula to make these shadows universal. What a shame

OMG guys. If you have ever seen a blacker black than corrupt. I love it! I hate blacks that turn out smokey or greyish. this is the kit to go to if you want to try Makeup Geek for the first time. The shadows are highly pigmented, high high quality, buttery delicious. I can't say enough about cocoa bear and corrupt. Highly recommended.

Doorway To Bliss
First, let me thank MUG for creating this line. I recently discovered the products viewing tutorials on YouTube. Now I'm hooked! I'm AA (medium to deep) and was using no eye makeup at all. Thanks to MUG and this starter palette, I can now achieve the looks I always dreamed of doing. The colors show up and look like what's in the pan. Good value, and I have ordered some pigments and shadows for the fall to create a nice collection. I want it all, but have convinced myself to order by season. Just to note, I ordered this set with the to-go palette and two blushes...LOVE IT!

Recently bought my first eyeshadows from MUG. It certainly won't be my last. Beautiful, beautiful colors. Fabulous textures. Fast shipping and perfectly packaged. Fits perfectly in my Z Palette. WOW!

Great Product With Some Great Dupes For Mac
First of all I want to say these shadows are amazing! To be honest they make me regret all the money I spent on my MAC shadows! BUTTTT I did find some great dupes with shades I already had which is good. I also got your pigment in Afterglow which I have worn every single day since! LOVE! Great job with these shadows! I reach for them more than my MAC ones now and I definitely plan on purchasing the rest of your collection! OH and I got my order in under a week. AWESOME!

Much love!

Great Product At Great Price.
These were my first eyeshadows from MUG, and I am very pleased with them.
Very pigmented and the same quality as my MAC shadows, they stick really well on magnet palletes and always deliver me great results. Looking forward to expand my collection!

Congratulations Marlena, MUG is a sucess!

Hugs from Brazil!

Great Starter Kit!
This kit is fantastic! It's a great way to start your eyeshadow collection or as an introduction to Makeup Geek shadows. Every single shadow in this kit is just beautiful. I bought this kit to try out the MUG eyeshadows for my own personal use but I'm so impressed with them that I plan on purchasing more for use in my freelance kit. The quality is great and the price cannot be beat. Keep doing what you're doing MUG team!

Fantastic Eyeshadows
Had most of the collection for a while now and I simply adore these shadows. I practically only use MUG shadows now! I will be using them for my wedding makeup too next June! I still have to purchase the last 6 or 7 shades that came out last and will do so soon.

They are a definite must have if you want pigmented, creamy eyeshadows that do not crease or fade and are reasonably priced! Most importantly, MUG ships worldwide! So I can get them here in Malta... YAY! :D

Thank you Marlena for these awesome shadows! Will try purchasing a couple of lipsticks too, if they're anything like your shadows quality-wise, then they'll be fantastic too!
Angelica wrote on 1/9/2013
I ordered the started kit this past June and i use some of these colors every single day since then. I only wear mac/estee lauder, I wear a smokey eye about 5 times a week. These colors are rich in color, and true to what you see in the pan! Although the black is a little dusty/powdery, it is the most beautiful, intense black i have ever used, ever, so perfect for a sultry smokey eye. Make up stays on the whole day w a primer. Great at blending.Just an outstanding product for its price and quality. i love em all!!! cant wait to order more colors.

This MUG starter kit is perfect for those who are just starting to learn about make up eye shadows, or if you're looking for neutral tones, they're so good. It's also long-lasting and perfect for every skin tone. Love it!

Love The Color Options
i was also excited into getting my eyeshadows in the mail and i was ready to put them in my mac palette and realized they are magnetized sp. only to the z palette which was disapointing either way i like the eyeshadows because they are pigment yet with a little touch of the eyeshadow it creates a eyeshadow dust if this makes any sence love the colors options

Worth The Wait!!!!
I had to wait for almost 4 weeks for this kit to arrive, because I live in Chile.
But it was totally worth the wait!!! I am amazed by these eyeshadows, and the packaging of it all.
I will deffinetely be buying more stuff!!!! :D
izhabellissima wrote on 10/11/2012
Get The Z Palette Too!
I was so excited to get these as I had some 12 pan cardboard palettes purchased from a wholesale company. While Mac fit in the palettes, these were SLIGHTLY too big. Since they don't have magnets on them, they won't fit in MAC palettes without adding a magnet which will cover up the label. The z palette is your best option. As for the shadows, they're beautiful, but I haven't been able to play with them yet since I don't have a palette to put them in first.

From Skeptic, To Believer!
First time MUG buyer and i was quite impressed! The fast shipment, personalized thank you, and the eye shadow itself i will definitely be buying MUG over the other more expensive brands that i typically buy. I am usually skeptical of things like this...i mean, good price, gorgeous colors, highly pigmented, etc what is the catch! The colors in this starter kit are beautiful and have something for everyone. Sure there are a few that look a little different on me that the swatch, but that is to be expected, they are still amazing. I have very sensitive skin and have had issues with eye shadow product in the past and was a little nervous to try this...wearing every day the past two weeks and no problems! Looking forward to my next purchase! Great job, you turned this skeptic into a believer!

Love It!!!!
Marlena, I am truly amazed. I got the starter kit along with a z palette and some eye brushes. I love the eye shadows! They are so pigmented. It's obvious that you spent so much time on each one. The eyeshadows fulfilled the saying, "little goes a long way.". Corrupt is by far my favorite!!!! I use it every day as an eyeliner and it stays put all day. I've noticed with other brands my eyeliner would transfer, to my top lid every time. So, I've very pleased to finally get eyeshadows that stay put all day!!!! I'll definitely will be ordering more VERY SOON!!! The shipping was very fast, I ordered on a Sunday and received my package on Thursday. Kudos to you Marlena!!!!

I'm In Love.........
I just purchased the starter kit and I'm in LOVE! These are the best shadows ever. I'm a MAC user as well as other high-end shadows and these are far better than all of the brands out there. I kid you not when I say this! They are very pigmented and last all day. The colors are absolutely beautiful. I did buy a z palette to put them in and I love the fact that the shadows already have magnetic bottoms so no extra work there. At $6.00 a pop, you cannot go wrong. I just ordered the color expansion kit today and I'm so excited to receive it. Another great thing about this company is the shipping is very fast!! Marlena you have gone above and beyond my expectations!!! I will be purchasing all of the shadows for my collection. Thanks for putting your heart and sole into everything you do sweetie -- it shows!! Love Kelly xoxo

Great Color Payoff!
The colors are great! The only problem is that the pans don't have enough magnet to stick to the MAC Pro Palette which was very disappointing. I just ordered the Z palette so I hope that the eye shadows do stick in this palette.

Beautiful Colors.
I got my MUG starter kit in the mail the other day, sadly I haven't been able to use them yet because I am sick and just don't have the energy nor anywhere to go BUT I am in love with the colors. I can't stop looking at them and I did swatch them. Pigmentation is awesome and so beautiful! I really can't wait until I feel better and can actually wear it. Really the amount you are given is amazing for the price. I've been looking for a great natural/neutral palette and finally found one.

Looooove! My Mug Eyeshadow Starter Kit!!
I just looooveeeee my MUG 8 shadow starter kit. The colors have awesome payoff and they last all day. (I have oily skin and shadows usually crease/wear off by end of day). Problem is that my 17 yr old daughter loves them too so Ill need to order her own set. I look forward to buying a lot more and adding to my collection. This is saving me $$$ cuz I'm used to buying MAC and urban decay. These are as good or better!!! Try won't be sorry!!

An Artist's Dream!
As an artist, I think I know pretty well about color, and so when I finally wanted to invest on makeup, I wanted to find good, quality, well pigmented shadows that would be reminiscent of the beautiful colors I use to paint--and let me say, these gorgeous shadows did not disappoint!

I tried several samples of other shadows such as MAC and MUFE and Urban Decay, and for a while the UD were my favorite. However, I later found these and let me just say that these are tied in first place with all those pricey, famous brand ones!

These shadows are extremely pigment so a little goes a long way, and all are extremely beautiful. There is a little fall out on 'Corrupt' but my word, the color is just phenomenal! I cannot say enough good things about these shadows.

Take it from someone who knows color well: MUG shadows are quality and live up to par, and may well beat, other shadows such as MAC and UD ones, and are a lot more wallet friendly too!

If you haven't tried out these shadows yet, please do, I guarantee you won't be disappointed :D

OMG these are the best eyeshadows EVER and at an AFFORDABLE price!! I cant believe how great this set is!! I used to be totally addicted to MAC but now I find myself addicted to Makeup Geek eyeshadows!! They are HALF the price and in my opinion have BETTER color payoff! If you have any hesitation on purchasing these, DONT! they are totally worth every penny! Thanks Marlena for yet again providing a product that does not disappoint!

Out Of This World Awesome!
I received the eyeshadows today & I'm absolutely stunned at the superior quality! I have NEVER come across eyeshadows this insanely pigmented. They are extremely smooth, too. You can tell that a lot of time & care went in to developing these eyeshadows.
Sara wrote on 3/12/2012
I cannot fault MUG's Customer service!! I ordered Corrupt, Golddigger and Shimmer Shimmer. Which didn't arrive! As soon as I got in touch with customer service they were sent out within days.

I'm soooo happy with these eyeshadows. They are silky textured and the colour payoff is amazing. If people are having fallout with Corrupt, you're putting too much on the brush and not tapping off the excess. I've been using it as an eyeliner and haven't had any problems. It's the best black eyeshadow i've ever used.

I'm very impressed and will order again. :)

Holy Cow!!
I ordered my very first MUG eye shadows recently. I didn't get this starter kit yet, but I ordered Corrupt and White Lies and let me just say, it was the BEST decision ever! (As far as makeup goes) Corrupt is simply amazing! Its extremely pigmented and a little really does go a long way. It does have a bit of fallout but nothing that cant be prevented by tapping out excess or using a tissue underneath the eye. Completely worth it. White Lies is also amazing and goes on real smoothly. They last all day on me! I can't wait to build a nice palette with these eye shadows. I'm totally hooked on MUG shadows. Can't wait for more colors and to have money to buy more :D Also, shipping is pretty fast. I got mine in about 4 days and I live in Puerto Rico.

I really love the quality and pigmentation of these shadows, the only one that I had a problem with and I wouldn't say its a "problem" per-say, the Shadow: Corrupt does have some fall-out, make sure to uses a tissue under the eyes when applying this or tap off the excess and then some more. Overall it is a very beautiful set and I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family. Including Corrupt, it truly is the blackest eye shadow.

Best Eye Shadows Ever
I got my shadows today , it took 13 days which is pretty good considering that I live in UK.
I love , love them .They are the best shadows i have ever used ( better than MAC -i think). They are very pigmented which means that they will last you forever and you get great value for money and the colours are beautiful. Thank you Marlena.
The only bad thing is that UK custom charged me £7 tax and post office £8 handling charge ,so I had to pay extra £15.
If not those extra charges i would have bought all of the shadows lol.

This is the best starter kit! The colors selected are awesome, the pigmentation is amazing. They blend very well together. I got the set in along with my zpallet, which holds them like glue in place, plus other shades also amazing. I barely had to touch the brush to get the right amount of product. The black is insanely black. Shimma Shimma is this beautiful champagne color that is just so gorgeous. I used that with the purple shades today and it looked really nice together for a work look. I bought razzleberry and poolside for some fun looks, those were my fav brighter shades. I will definitely be buying a lot of these. Seriously amazing quality, fast shipping, cute and secure packaging with ribbon holding the shadows together. I even got a thank you note! This is what a good buisiness is all about, quality and great customer service and supporting a wonderful small buisness.I love this company! I'll support Marlena and her team for life. I'm officially am a makeup geek and I love it!

Great Pigmentation!
These eyeshadowsare simply amazing, and come with a terrific price! My only complaint is they do not have magnets on the back of them, so not only do you have to buy an empty palette, but you also have to buy magnets to put on the back. I was a little disappointed :( can these eyshawdows already have magnets attached to them? It would be super helpful and less time consuming! But great product !! Xoxo

OMG!!!! I LOVE these eyeshadows Marlena!!!
I bought the Starter Kit and must say that the pigment on these is absolutely WONDERFUL!!!!
I got so excited after I received these that I immediately went to the MUG website and went a lil "crazy".....I bought about 22 more eyeshadows and now am looking to buy some more....YIKES!! Seriously Marlena, there is such an array of Beautiful Colors that you have come up with and i just wanted to say "Thank You" from the bottom of my Heart, for the simple fact that you turned me into a MUG past the age of 40....NEVER thought that I would have such a Love for makeup the way that I do now....and it's all because of YOU Marlena:) All the hours that I have sat and watched your tutorials over and over again, so that I could get the "look" down perfect. You have officially turned me into a Makeup Geek...and I'm Proud to be one:) I'm Happy to see all of your hard work has paid off and that now you are giving us MUGS "High end" Products....God Bless You Marlena, I hope that You and Yours have had a Very Merry Christmas and that 2012 brings nothing but Sunshine and Happiness into your life, because I know that that's what you have done for me:)

(Edit from MUG Team - pans will stick to magnetic palettes like Z-Palettes without additional magnets -- glad you're enjoying the shadows)

Hardly Any Fallout!!
For my everyday makeup I have been using Too Faced Natural Eye kit for the longest. I even favored it over the Naked Palette by far. I used several shadows from your starter kit that are almost complete dupes for the TD kit! And the shadows go on soooo smooth with VERY little fallout! I wanted to turn cartwheels!! So I have found my replacement for my TD Natural eye kit!!!

Fantastic Quality
I'm so glad I didn't waste my money on MAC shadows when I decided to start building my own palettes... For half the price, these have a better texture than the MAC shadows I've tried... The starter kit is great to have, and I already ordered more colours to get another palette started... Very impressed, I expected nothing less from Marlena!

So Pleased
Hey Marlena! I watch alll of your videos and I was so excited that you came out with your own makeup line! I have at least 5 other makeup palettes so I didn't really need this palette but I got it just because it was yours!! The only thing that I was disappointed about was the fact that they did not actually come in a palette, they were individually packaged. But besides that I love love love it! I'm already deciding what other colors I want to buy (: good luck!!

These eyeshadows are absolutely beautiful! I just received them today and I couldn't wait to try them out. Just as Marlena said they are very pigmented and the colors are so wearable. I'm looking forward to all the other colors that will be coming out soon. Thanks again!
