Makeup Geek Pressed Eyeshadow Singles Swatches

Makeup Geek pressed eyeshadow singles are pressed single-pan eyeshadows that come in a wide variety of shades and finishes. All singles are in standard 26mm metal pans. They come in only thin cardboard packaging (seen below), so they will need a separate magnetic palette (or any palette that fits 26mm pans) for storage. Makeup Geek singles retail for $6.00USD for standard finishes or $10.00USD for foil finishes and can be purchased on Makeup Geek’s website.

Packaging

Many Makeup Geek eyeshadows perform perfectly fine on bare skin. Eyeshadow primer will help their color appear more vibrant, though, and will increase their staying power. None of the eyeshadows seem to benefit from glitter primer.
