More than a duochrome, Kaleidoscope‚Äôs constantly changing color has landed it the nickname ‚Äúquadrichrome‚ÄĚ here at the Makeup Geek headquarters. Purple one moment and teal the next, this extraordinary shade adds multiple layers of dimension with minimal fallout.

Makeup Geek Blushes!

Makeup Geek recently came out with a reformulation of their blushes and added some new colors to the collection.

Blush-Launch-Category-Header-Pans-2

 

I have two shades from the first launch and I thought they were pretty good, but the formula on the new ones are much more creamy and pigmented.  And that is saying a lot because the old formula was pretty dang good!

Love Letter—¬†Love Letter is a dusty mauve with a matte finish

Xoxo–XOXO is a watermelon pink with a matte finish

Blind Date—¬†Blind Date is a cantaloupe pink with a matte finish

Romance–Romance is a peachy coral with a golden shimmery finish

These blushes are super pigmented!!! And the formula is like butter, so smooth and creamy for a powder.

Spell Bound—¬†Spell Bound is a light salmon with a matte finish

Love Affair— Love Affair is an intense pink coral with a matte finish
