    • The price tag may seem a bit steep, but these are the best of the best that we have to offer and they are a great value compared to buying everything separately. And with the included Large Black Z-Palette, you can easily swap in new colors or replacements instead of having gaps like with traditional pre-made palettes from other companies.

I'm in love!!!!!
My boyfriend bought me this palette for Valentine's Day and
#1 the colors are amazing. Really affordable and highly pigmented.
#2 bomb customer service. I contacted customer service to find tracking information (boyfriend can't keep a secret and I couldn't wait) and they replied minutes later and were extremely helpful.
My only complaint is that I didn't buy this palette sooner.

Hooray for MUG!!
Wow!!! Just wow! This was my first MUG order. I heard about you guys from a friend. These are by far the best eyeshadows I have ever used. Im pretty good at doing makeup....but with this palette, I look like a peofessional. Easily blendable color that sticks!! Suuuuper pigmented. I will never buy eyeshadow anywhere else. On top of that, beautifully packaged. You can tell Emily takes pride in her brand. Well done. I am so glad i got this!!

Simply amazing eyeshadows
I absolutely love these eyeshadows though I haven't bought this palette. I do have 18 colors from MUG I'd like to have all the colors that I want, however I would have to buy them separately or get multiple bundles wich as much as I'd love to that can be there anyway Marlena/makeup geek can do a customized package where we get to pick the colors and pay the same as this palette. Maybe allow 4 or 5 foileds in it as well. Just a suggestion from a curious MAKEUP GEEK!!! CANT WAIT TO HAVE MORE IN MY VANITY!!

i Love it
This palette is flawless. My sister bought me this as a present and I absolutely adore it. The palette and packaging itself is adorable and when you open it up the chocolate aroma fills the room! It smells SO delicious and the shadows stay in for a very long time without creasing, which is amazing because my eyelids tend to get pretty greasy. The colors are wonderful and vibrant and I can't wait to get more palettes

Assembly required
So I went a head and order two palettes during a sale; v4 and the wedding palette. I travel a lot so they have been setting on my office desk about two weeks or so. Let me say I was really excited to open them, I have heard so many good reviews, but I was disappointed when I saw the packaging. All of the foil eyeshadows arrived cracked. I had to press the eyeshadow back into the pan while they were in the package. The most annoying part is that I did not receive enough magnet plates. So I just prepped the wedding palette into the large z palette. The eyeshadow were okay. The cupcake eyeshadow had major fallout. Overall not impressed, I thought I was buying a complete palette. Felt like I was buying furniture from Ikea back in college.

Love These Eyeshadows!!!!
These eyeshadows highly pigmented the glide on before these I was using a lot of Mac eyeshadows and these are just as good actually better I love them

Really Pigmented
Prior to Makeup Geek eyeshadows, I was using MAC ones. The Makeup Geek prices were tempting me, so I finally caved and bought the Ultimate Eyeshadow palette. I am a makeup collector and pretty much have a lot of palettes, but the one I reach for the most is Makeup Geek. They blend easily, they are pigmented and they have a high quality feel to them. I would recommend these over MAC any day because you can get much more color combinations for your money. An extra added bonus is that Marlena has posted so many youtube tutorials using her shadows and you can easily replicate the look. Other makeup gurus on youtube also use these shadows and I have not heard a negative comment about them. Although I was skeptical at first, now that I am using them, I couldn't be happier. I love Makeup Geek!!!!

Unprecedented Quality For The Price
these shadows have unbelievable staying power. it is no exaggeration, and it isn't hype. they actually compare to MAC quality, if not slightly exceed it. these shadows do not crease or fade even in hot, humid weather, and despite my oily lids. i can't say how they perform without a primer because i cannot wear eyeshadow without it, but i genuinely believe that if this product could work so well for me, it could work for anyone.

Fantastic Palette.
This palette was my first MUG purchase. I was hesitant for a long time because there are many colours in it that I didn't want. But I'm very grateful now that I bought it because it encouraged me to use colours I would normally avoid. Some of the colours I thought I wouldn't like are now my favourites!
My only issue would be that there are not enough neutrals and highlight colours. The lightest colour is Beaches and Cream which turned out to be much to dark for my pale skin. I had to make another order soon after but that was likely to happen anyway!
Thank you!

I received my ultimate eyeshadow palette two weeks ago and it's my first purchase from Makeup Geek and wow they don't disappoint I'm in love I can't believe I waited soooo long to order it its amazing the colors are super pigmented and they blend so easy. I find myself doing my makeup every morning just so I can put the shadows on I'm seriously in love with the quality of the shadows MUG you have a customer for life can't wait to expand my collection with the rest of your shadows and upcoming products thank you Marlena and MUG staff.

Fantastic Mug Starter Kit!
I bought this kit because I wasn't really sure what eyeshadow shades I would want, and I have to say, I love all of these! It has a nice selection of color and neutral shades with some mattes and some shimmery. It makes it perfect to make hundreds of unique looks. They are all super blendable, creamy, and super pigmented. Plus the Z Palette that comes with the collection is incredibly high quality. My other Z Palette's are just not as nice as this one.

My only complaint on this palette, is that I wish there were a few more matte neutrals in it. But I love MUG so much, that once I decided I loved these eyeshadows, I purchased the reset of the matte shades in her collection! Love love love them!

JUST BUY IT. SERIOUSLY!!!! Makeup Geek does not disappoint and this is such a great starter kit of shadows. SO worth it. I ended up buying almost every shadow after I received and watched these ones. Incredible. Just Incredible.

If There Was A Word Better Than Awesome I Would Use It!
These shadows are AMAZING! I am a MAC kind gal and these by far blow them out of the water! The price point is beautiful and the fact that this ultimate package comes with a Z Palette its like the icing on the cake. If your hesitant about spending the money... don't be. This was the 1st of many purchases from MUG!

Do Not Hesitate!
I have been waiting since May for this to come back! I would do it again! These are even more beautiful in person, and the best part was putting these in the palette! I can't stop looking on them, and the shipping was super fast! Thanks Makeup Geek!

My new holy Grail for eye shadows! This is by far my favorite palette. I haven't been so in love with each and every color that any pallet has, and its half the price of M.A.C!!! And the brunches are as amazing as the makeup. I'm just so happy I found makeup geek products. Now it's time to play with this face of mine! Xoxo

Waited with bated breath and was DELIGHTED when my palette arrived! I had heard so much about how pigmented these were, the amazing selection etc. etc. but when I finally got to play with some of the shadows... WOW! Can't believe how easy it is to blend these!
Great products, great service and fast shipping?!
This is going to be so much fun :-)

I just got my z-palette a week ago. And yes everything people say is true. They are very pigmented easy to blend, and amazing. The other plus I noticed is I had very little fall out, they never run even at nap time :) , and yet they come off at night with ease.. Amazing in my book! I am hooked for life

Nothing Beat Makeup Geek Products!!
I've purchased 2 Z-Palettes in this exclusive MUG design, which I love (and a small one in oak crocodile). I've also purchased 29 different eye shadow colors and not one of them has been disappointing. I think they're every bit as good as, if not better than, MAC's shadows. Nothing beats MUG eye shadows. They are so deeply pigmented and blend so easily. I also have to say the MUG bushes are comparable to my MAC brushes. I haven't found even one negative regarding MUG products. I think I'll be a MUGGIE for life. :)

Bye Bye Mac Shadows !!!!
After my husband surprising me with this palette for Christmas. I will never buy MAC shadows again, really! These are so true to color it's crazy. For the price you will be very amazed by the quality and amount of shadows you get. I will soon have them all :)

I got my order today and I gotta say, it was like christmas opening all of the individual eyeshadows and I love them all! I cant wait to play with all the beautiful colors! The little personalized note was so wonderful aswell. Thanks makeupgeek.

Sooooo Great!!!
I got this palette a few months ago and I absolutely love it. This new one looks like it has colors in it that I didn't get in the older palette but I am willing to buy those separately because the quality of these shadows are absolutely amazing! And to top it off the price is great and you get so many colors to make an infinite amount of looks with. This palette is in my kit at all times and that's where it stays. There are beautiful colors in there that suit anyone. I also loved the personalized note I received with it. It just shows how dedicated MUG is to their customers.

Great Color Payoff
Just got in my first MUG order of this palette along with around 10 other pans. Today I'm wearing a look that uses five of these shadows, and I have to say I'm very impressed with the quality. They really are highly pigmented, very blendable and, when applied with quality tools, result in no fallout (I am yet to try one of the colors that has "chunkier" glitter thought). I put a lot of faith in consumer reviews of these shadows and ordered so many of them, so I'm happy [and relieved] that they're so great. I have a feeling I will be buying more of them in the near future!
