My experience with Makeup Geek Eye Shadow Envy:
Shade: Envy is described as “Deep metallic green”, is a gorgeous deep dark forest green shade with iridescent green shimmers which gives it a beautiful sheen. The shade looks absolutely stunning in the pan.
Formula: It feels smooth to touch but isn’t as smooth and pigmented as other Makeup Geek Eye shadows I have tried. Also, I felt the texture here is slightly stiff and feels a bit dry. The color sheers out on blending leaving just a blackened green hint on lids, so I pack it again after all the blending work. Also, I hate the fallout, have to clean up underneath the eyes while working with this eye shadow.
Pigmentation: I am more than disappointed with color pay off of this particular shade because it swatches quite sheer even if I pack the color heavily with fingers. The color builds up slightly when patted more but it doesn’t look as intense and rich on lids as it does in the pan. Using a primer and colored base underneath shows a great improvement in pigmentation.
PS: Tap the brush after picking the color from pan to kick off excess from the bristles which will reduce fall out on application.
Recommendation: Makeup Geek Eye Shadow Envy is an intense shimmery forest green eye shadow which pulls pretty much matte on lids. The formula isn’t as smooth and soft and feels a bit dry and stiff, so there is a slight fallout during application. The color payoff is disappointing as it goes very sheer on lids and needs a solid base underneath for the color to show. The color was so pretty but the results weren’t as good as expected, definitely not a must have eye shadow.. there are better shades and formula in Makeup Geek Eye shadow collection. Not Recommended!
