Today I’m reviewing a beautiful warm toned eye shadow palette from Makeup Geek. The Vegas Lights palette contains 6 warm toned shadows in a variety of finishes that makes this palette really versatile!
Price : $37.99 for 0.384 oz
Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Eye shadow Palette
The palette comes in a sturdy cardboard packaging with a magnetised base. According to the website, the pans are not glued down to the palette so you can easily depot them with a little pressure and put them in a Z-palette if you wish. The palette comes with a mirror inside which is really handy if you’re traveling with this palette. The 6 shades all have a lovely smooth texture and good color pay off though some shades fare a little better than others. The eye shadows blend with barely any effort and stay really well on the eyes (7-8 hours, no primer needed). The shadows apply true to color on the lids except for Bada Bing which is slightly stiff and dry.
I think this is a great palette especially for warmer complexions and the mix of finishes and colors makes this very versatile and complete. The top row shades have a soft shimmery finish while the bottom row is mostly satin/matte colors. The light creamy color Mirage works great as a soft highlighter, the mustard shade Desert Sands is great as a transition color and Bada Bing is a nice for crease/lash line definition. Roulette is a rosy copper with a really creamy and pigmented formula while Casino and Sin City are very warm golds that look very similar on my complexion. I think one of these 2 shades could have been replaced by a rose gold or light peachy gold shade for a little more variety. If you’re looking for a starter eye shadow palette, I think this is a great palette as it has the basic shades as well as some beautiful metallics – all housed in a sleek, travel-friendly packaging. You can buy this palette online from Makeup Geek website (they ship worldwide).
Rating : 4.25/5
In the following look, I have Mirage as the browbone highlight, Desert Sands + Bada Bing in the crease/outer corner of the lid and along outer 1/2 of the lower lash line, Roulette in the center of the lid and Sin City in the inner 1/3rd of the lid + inner corner and tear duct.
