Manny MUA X Makeup Geek Palette Review and Swatches

Manny MUA X Makeup Geek Palette Swatches, Review and Eye Makeup Look

Makeup Geek collaborated with famous beauty vlogger Manny MUA (Manny Gutierrez) to bring out this nine color eyeshadow palette. Makeup geek is one of my personal favorite brands, it not only an affordable brand but also creates great quality products. This was the most hyped collaboration of the year and one of the reasons is the delay in the release of this palette. This collab was announced in November 2015 and was supposed to launch in December 2015 but due to some ingredient issues, it launched in February 2016. Makeup Geek website crashed in minutes when this palette launched. It has been two months and the palette is still out of stock. I was lucky to get my hands on this gorgeous palette.

Manny MUA x Makeup Geek Palette is made up of cardboard packaging and features nine full size (1.8 gm) eyeshadows.  At the back of the palette names of all the shades are mentioned. The palette also features a mirror on the lid. The palette comes in a matte finish sleeve with Manny MUA written on it in duochrome. Not only the shades in palette but the packaging is also gorgeous.

Manny MUA X Makeup Geek Palette consists of four permanent Makeup Geek eyeshades which are Manny’s favorites. Rest of the five shades are custom made by him.

Shades include:

  • Artemis (shimmer): is a white shimmer shade which is ideal for brow bone and inner corner highlight
  • Beaches and Cream (matte): is an off white type of shade and it would be a good transition shade for fair complexion
  • Luna (foil): it is a taupe pink shade and looks great as an overall eye lid shades
  • Cosmopolitan (shimmer): permanent Makeup Geek eyeshadow. It is very pretty pink shade with a hint of peach, perfect for spring
  • Sora (matte): It is light brown shade with peachy under tone. It is a great crease shade
  • Frappe (matte): It is an existing makeup geek shadow and is medium brown shade perfect for crease
  • Insomnia (foil): Makeup geek has this shade in pigment form but in this palette you get it in pressed form. It is a blue brown foil shade
  • Mars (matte): it is a very pigmented cherry red shade. Looks more  like pink when applied on eyes
  • Aphrotide (matte): cool deep plum brown shade. Great for outer corner or to deepen up the crease

Shade selection by Manny is really good and these nine shades can be used to create a lot different types of eye makeup looks for all skin tones and complexions. This palette is more towards warm side. Just like all regular makeup geek eyeshadows all the shades in this palette are great in quality.  All the shades are extremely pigmented and creamy but these shades do fall out while applying. Shades with most fallout are Mare and Aphordite. So I would suggest you to do your eyes first or pack your under eye area with a lot of powder if you are working to avoid runining your foundation.

The palette consists of all shades required for a complete makeup look like highlight shade, transition shade, crease shade and over all lid shades. My most favorite shades in this palette are Luna, Sora, Insomnia and Mars. Aphrotide is the only shade in the palette, I had difficulty using. First of all it is more on cool tone and secondly I was unable to blend it properly. Apart from this I love this entire palette.

I highly recommend this palette if you are looking for a good eyeshadow palette. It retails for $45 only and available exclusively on Makeup Geek website.
