Makeup Geek DuoChrome Eyeshadows in Voltage, Phantom, RockStar, & Mai Tai : Swatches & Review

PURCHASED / SWAPPED / AFFILIATE LINK

The Makeup Geek Duochrome Eyeshadow pans retail for $6US each for 1.8g / 0.064 oz of product each. So these are a touch larger than a MAC eyeshadow.

Product: 
These are all more of a pearl/shimmer finish using aura/iridescent mica pigments to create these duo chrome eyeshadow. For duo chrome pan/pressed eyeshadows these are good. I know there were complaints that the duochrome was subtle with these pressed eyeshadows, but that is the nature of pressing these products compare to loose powder products. That said you can intensify the "chrome" of these shades by applying them wet. ;)

But with that said Rockstar is the lease duochrome out of the 4 shades I have but it's a more intense version compared to MAC Vex eyeshadow I used up years ago. I consider this a very daywear shade because the glow is subtle.

Colour:
Voltage is a steel white base colour, with a gold yellow pearl shift.
Phantom is a sheer white base colour, with a pale lavender pearl shift.
RockStar is a grey base colour, with a pale pink pearl shift.
Mai Tai is a yellow/orange base colour, with a pink pearl shift.

Wear: With a base/primer these do stay all day without any fading. On their own, they do fade evenly to a sheer wash in 6 hours with my semi-hooded lids.

Packaging: Basic magnetic pan house in a folder envelope.

Verdict:
I want more of these for sure. These are slightly subtle shades I have, which is not a bad thing as you can intensify these using a wet brush but they are easier to used in this pan form and really smooth to apply in texture but they still have some tooth to them to both blend and stay put. So a nice option for those on a budget that want more duochromes since they are lacking in the drugstore market.
