Makeup Geek Contour Powders and Blushes Review

Review of Makeup Geek Cherish blush and Love Triangle & Break up contour powders

I’m a huge lover of Makeup Geek; the quality and price of their products are amazing and I would recommend them to anyone! Marlena (CEO of Makeup Geek) is such an intelligent and inspirational woman. I always listen to what she has to say and I love her snapchats too. Last year, I created my Makeup geek eyeshadow palette and I’ve been in love with it ever since. They never fail to impress me; the formula blends out seamlessly and the pigmentation is spectacular! So I was very excited to try out the Makeup Geek Contour powders and blushes.

Back in January, they released new Makeup Geek contour powders and I quickly ran to pick them up. After trying to figure out my undertone, I came to the conclusion that my skin has a neutral undertone. Usually I try to seek out a neutral toned contour powder or if I want to look bronzed, I’ll go for a warm tone and if I want to look chiseled, I go for cool tone. Which is why I decided to pick up the Makeup Geek contour powders in Love triangle (warm porcelain) and Break up (cool porcelain), I have no regrets picking them both up since I use them both pretty equally.

I use the Makeup Geek contour powders with the Nars ita brush. I apply it to the hollows of my cheeks, across my temples and along my jawline. When initially applied, it looks too pigmented but it blends out amazingly. A little goes a long way with these contour powders, so don’t overdo it. It’s easier to build up the product than take it away. This also works remarkably well on my very fair skintone, it doesn’t look too harsh and it’s easy to create a natural contour.

A few months back, Makeup Geek came out with an updated formula for their blushes and expanded on their current range. I was never impressed with their previous formula when compared to Mac and Benefit. This new formula has blown me away and I’m curious to see how the other shades compare. I love how Marlena has directed the shades depending on your skin tone just like she did with the Makeup Geek contour powders; porcelain, fair, medium and deep. Cherish is described as a soft apricot tan with a matte finish, but I would say it’s more of a rosey pink colour with warm undertones. The texture feels incredibly finely-milled and it’s easy to blend out on the skin. It has the perfect pigmentation for my very fair skin tone, it’s semi-sheer but has a buildable coverage.

Makeup Geek contour powders and blushes are both great products that I would recommend to anyone, especially since they provide a range of shades for different skin tones. I’ve never been disappointed by Makeup Geek (although I’ve never tried their brushes); I will always continue to support, recommend and buy their products. If you’re in the UK, the best place to purchase Makeup Geek would be at Beautybay and they provide free shipping over £15.

Have you tried Makeup Geek products before? and if so, what have been your favourite products?
