Makeup Geek Appreciation / My Borderline Obsession

Yes, I am [possibly] the poorest person in the land - but  I also have a stack of credit cards, a worrying amount of debt and a raging shopping addiction that will not quit. 
Winner, winner [Smartprice] chicken dinner.

One thing I'll never get bored of splurging money I don't have on is Makeup Geek's range of eyeshadow singles; which I seek out on BeautyBay. I legit find them one of the best brands of eyeshadow I've ever used, and I adore how varied the range is. They're pretty, dead pigmented, last for hours and blend like a genuine dream. Marriage material, if you will.

I whacked a photo of my Z-Palette [and the MUG eyeshadows I have lovingly stored in there] on the Gram recently - and you guys loved it. So I thought I'd share my collection in all its glory with yous today. 

This is by no means a giant collection, I can't label it a 'haul' and I know there's hundreds of bloggers out there with at least ten times more pans of MUG eyeshadows than me - but yeno, I'm poor. Even my credit cards have limits. So this post is just a summary of the bad boys who've winged their way into my possesion, thus far in my adult life.

The extra shades I have in my palette in this photo are:

GlitterEyes [the two gold foils and the beautiful glitter pan] 
- The pale pink shade [the first eyeshadow on the left, in the top row] is Eyeshadow Shimmer 03 from #ProArtist 
- The highlighter pan [on the end, on the bottom row] is a proper old one from CoverGirl that I LOVE for adding illumination to my brow bone and in the corners of my eyes.

I've used the reddish, warm tones quite a lot throughout Autumn Winter. Trying to be on point, and all that.

Bitten is a favourite of mine, and I've been wearing quite a bit of Mango Tango recently; which also makes a fantastic transition colour. Poppy applies so, so beautifully and shades such as Cocoa Bear and Beaches & Cream are legit staples in most looks I bash together.

Venom and Dragonfly are two of the newest pans I've added to the family. I haven't used Dragonfly yet, as I don't want to look like I've teleported back to the 80s / like a total bellend; so I'm trying to perfect the ultimate look with it before I debut it outside, in front of other humans. I'd love to mix it up with a bit of glitter - think that would be babein'. What do you reckon?

If you haven't tried Makeup Geek's eyeshadows, you're totes missing out. They're so bloody good, yeno. And not too pricey either, which is criteria that massively floats my boat; what with the state of financial crisis I call my life!!

What's your favourite MUG eyeshadow? What's your collection looking like? Got any suggestions on the shades I should try next? 

I can pretty much hear the souls of my credit cards breaking as I type this - soz lads!
