Makeup Geek* has recently undergone a change in product development including a whole new look for the brand!

So what's new for Makeup Geek*? Stage 1 of the rebrand includes new shades of eyeshadows, a few renames, new pan shapes, new palettes, and most importantly - eco-friendly packaging!

Makeup Geek Matrix palettes

There are 72 shades of neutrals*, colors*, and foils* that make up the rebranded line. Many are existing colors that were originally sold in round palettes but under the rebranding are now in the square pans. The new shadows have been reformulated so if there was one you liked in the past you should compare it to see what changed.

The "Signature Eyeshadow" are retailing for $5.49 each and the "Foil Eyeshadows" and "Power Pigments*" retail for $7.99 each. The new Matrix palettes cost $124.99 each or both for $219.99*.

Also included in the relaunch are Eyelashes*! Lashes start at $7.99 and go up to $10.99 for the 3D Faux Mink Lashes.

Side notes:
As I was going through the ingredients list for the shadows I noticed a few things that I wanted to bring to people's attention. These things are something to consider if you have a corn allergy and/or are vegan.

44 shadows do contain corn starch and 24 contain carmine (of which 17 contain both). There are a few others that are not listed as vegan on the Makeup Geek website but do not contain carmine (I'm not listing those here). The lists that contain corn starch and/or carmine are as follows:
