These lovely eyeshadows shipped wonderfully, quickly and cheaply. :D I purchased 5 a while back but I won a MUG Facebook makeup contest, and they sent me 8 eyeshadows of my choice and an extra 6 for some feedback on the website! :D How amazing is this indie makeup company???

I love Makeupgeek and I have been following Marlena's tutorials since before I decided to become a makeup artist back in 2008. She is a gifted artist and a fantastic teacher, so if you are just starting out in makeup, you should check out her website, Everyone that I have spoke to on the MUG staff is extremely helpful, friendly, and they are very quick to respond if you're having a problem and they ALWAYS ship my orders out the day of or the day after they receive it. I really like that the MUG team is always asking for feedback on their website and products, and they actually listen, respond, and make the changes if need be. I <3 MUG!

If I could compare these eyeshadows to any high end company, it would probably be MAC. I LOVE the names they came up with for these eye shadows! Corrupt is my all- time favorite out of all these eyeshadows. It has smooth texture, isn't too powdery, (I hardly get any fall out while I use it) and best of all this black is INTENSE. If you go to the MUG store, you'll see they have a picture of it swatched next to MAC's Black Tied. Most "black" eyeshadows look gray compared to Corrupt. It's insane. After swatching all of these without a primer, I've come to realize that Corrupt, Shimmermint, Stealth, Dirty Martini, Moondust, and Taupe Notch have the highest pigmentation of the 19 MUG eyeshadow that I currently have. Fairytale, Duchess, Unicorn, Mercury, Mermaid, Twilight, Galaxy, Unexpected, Gold Digger are all pretty average in quality, I got a touch of sheerness and a lot of powdery fall out when swatching some of them but you can build them up pretty easily.

I was unimpressed with Razzleberry, Yellow Brick Road, and Peacock. Razzleberry is too sheer and the gold flecks of glitter fall out everywhere. Yellow Brick Road isn't very pigmented and almost looks invisible on my skin. Peacock is my least favorite because of the sheerness, and the problems I have with blending into other eyeshadows. I still have yet to put the ones I won in the contest on top of a primer though, so they might pick up pigmentation a little better with it. A lot of the MUG shadows are a hit or a miss but the price ($6 per pan) makes it worth the risk, in my opinion. I was really hoping they would have more cooler neutrals than Mocha, but even that is a medium brown; it leans neither cool or warm. Since they are fairly new, they are probably still tweaking each eyeshadow to perfection and adding more shades which probably takes some time and I am cool with that-- I just enjoy supporting independent makeup brands because they work their asses off. I love that they come in pans only because I like customizing my own palettes but I won't be repurchasing any more MUG eyeshadows unless they make something unique that I don't already have in my collection.

This is a look I did using MUG Corrupt :) Give me some "love" on MUG if you like this look!
