Makeup Geek Gel Eyeliners Review + Swatches


I have wanted to try some Makeup Geek products for ages, so when Martha sent me over some goodies from the USA, i managed to ask for some MUG eyeliners.

I am an avid user of gel liners.......i use them on myself and on my clients. I prefer gel liners over liquid ones because i find them easier to control, there's no smudging and they double up as an eyeshadow base. 


The MUG eyeliners are smooth on application, water resistant and smudge proof! What more could you want? When i swatched these, i couldn't believe how intense the shades were.


The 3 shades i received were:

Rave - Metallic golden brown.
Twinkle - Metallic grey with blue undertones.
Fame - Dark teal with blue undertone.

Rave

Fame

Left-Right: Rave, Twinkle, Fame.

As i mentioned before i love using these on my upper lash line, as well as a base for my eyeshadow. These can also be used on the waterline and they will stay put, so you don't need to worry about reapplying your eyeliner throughout the day!

I am incredibly impressed with these gel liners. Not only are they super affordable but there is a variety of vibrant colours. I think these are definitely comparable to MAC and Bobbi Brown, however we know that these brands don't have any shades like the MUG liners.

MUG Gel eyeliners are $7.99 and can be purchased on the Makeup Geek website.

Have you tried anything from Makeup Geek?

  2. I have Poison, the red color, but it takes forever to set and transfers on me :(

    1. I was thinking of getting that shade, but thought it's not the most wearable colour, although it would be great for my kit. xx

  3. Ooh these look lovely. I've seen the MUG lady (complete mind blank) use her eyeshadows on her youtube channel and they look great too :)

  5. Her eyeshadows are really nice as well. I've got approximately 15 or so of them.. I far prefer them over NARS & MAC'S products. Love these gel liners too, in addition to the cream shadows she had for sale at one point which I believe were prototypes. Can't wait til she releases her blushes. Hoping she does some nice cream blushes in addition to pressed powders.
