Who doesn’t love playing around with eyeshadow? From bright yellow to stark white, Makeup Geek has you covered.

Who do we look to for good eye shadow? MAC, of course. MAC Cosmetics is known for their high end quality. Their eyeshadows are highly pigmented, apply evenly and blend well. But what about those who don’t want to hurt their wallet for make up?

We have found a brand that offers the same quality as MAC, but for less! Makeup Geek‘s eyeshadows are highly pigmented, cruelty free, talc and paraben-free and blend well.


MAC’s eyeshadow pans contain 1.5 grams of product for $10, while Makeup Geek eyeshadow pans offer 1.8 grams of product for $5.99. If you have a favorite MAC eyeshadow, you can most likely find a similar Makeup Geek color. Here are a few dupes:
