Makeup Geek Foiled Lip Glosses & Pigments Review | Lip Swatches + Chit Chat


Hey, guys. Welcome back. For those of you who don’t know, all of my
videos now have closed captioning, so you can just hit the little CC button below if
you just want to watch this with subtitles. Today I’m going to be talking to you about
the new Makeup Geek foiled lip glosses and foiled pigments. I did lip swatches of all of the foiled lip
glosses for you, and I also did hand swatches of all of the pigments. The new foiled lip glosses from Makeup Geek
are supposed to be very comfortable to wear. They’re supposed to last up to six hours,
and they’re supposed to have a new gloss technology. I need to be honest with you, I personally
hate gloss. I don’t like wearing it. I don’t like how it feels on me. I don’t like how it transfers, because it
always gets on my front teeth, always. Doesn’t matter what I do. I am not a gloss person, but despite that
I went ahead and swatched all these for you so can check them out. I do want to say that, in comparison to when
I last wore gloss, when I last really wore gloss, I wore MAC lip gloss, which I feel
like was much more sticky and tacky. This feels like it hugs my lips, but it is
not sticky. It doesn’t feel tacky. My lips don’t want to stick together, so I
feel like the formula is very nice if you like gloss. I think that if you’re somebody who loves
gloss, you’re going to really, really like this formula. I’m going to go ahead and run through the
swatches of the glosses first. We have VIP, which is a light peachy pink. Set List, which is a rosy color with pink
reflects. Vinyl, a taupe color with silver and purple
reflects. Headliner, which is a rich copper. Mixed Tape, rosy plum. Drumroll, a purple with pink reflects. Backstage, deep purple with royal blue reflects. Groupie, a bright fuchsia with purple reflects. Replay, bright pinky coral. And acoustic, oxblood red. I really like the names for this collection
because they’re all related to music, so I think that’s really cool. They’re $15 per lip gloss, which I feel like
puts them more at department store pricing than their eyeshadows, so they are a little
bit higher than what I expected. The packaging is pretty amazing. I love the packaging. I feel like the packaging looks fantastic. It has this glittery effect at the top that
ombres into a solid purple more towards the bottom, so they’re really, really pretty to
look at. I can’t speak to if they can last up to six
hours, because when I put them on, they get on my teeth and then I take them off. I felt like maybe the formula would last maybe
two to three hours and then need a touch-up, because that’s pretty much how gloss in general
wears for me. Let’s jump into the pigments. Telepathic, which reminds me of Kat Von D
Thunderstruck. It’s described as being a light cream with
strong peach reflects, but it reminds me of a white gold type of color with sort of pinky
peach shift. Illusion, pink base with a gold shift. Abracadabra, icy mint with silver reflects. Atlantis, icy blue with silver reflects. Tin Man, silver gray with a purple shift. Enchanted, plummy purple with a pink shift,
and I feel like there’s a orange undertone. Hocus Pocus, kind of a warm nude pink with
orange undertones. Firefly, bright golden peach. It’s a gold with a fiery orange shift. Voodoo, vibrant apple green. No, this is a bright badass green. Gargoyle, it’s a cool brown with slight gray
undertones. It’s supposed to be a taupe, but it looks
too brown on me. Supernatural, warm, rich brown. It’s a brown with kind of almost orange undertones. Intermission, sort of a complex brown. It’s a medium rusty brown with yellow undertones,
so you almost see some gold going on in there. The foiled pigments are supposed to be a mix
of pigment and pearl that come together to create a versatile loose eyeshadow. I don’t really see how these are much different
than the other pigments that they have. I really love their duochrome pigments, so
I feel like these are just kind of that. I don’t see that they look any different. I personally like the packaging. I like that there’s a sifter. I was a little disappointed that three of
the colors are brown, because I’m not a brown eyeshadow person, so I was just kind of like,
oh, this is kind of boring. Because if you’re going to have complex pigments,
why make it brown? Why not go for something fun? I was a little disappointed about that, but
aside from that, I feel like they have nice pigmentation. I feel like the colors, other than the browns,
are pretty. They’re colors I would use. I love the names for the pigments. I think that they’re really cute. I especially like that they have Hocus Pocus
and Supernatural, because I’m a huge Supernatural fan. In my opinion, if you are somebody who loves
gloss, you’re going to love these glosses. If you’re somebody like me who doesn’t like
to wear gloss, skip the glosses. Don’t go for the glosses. They’ll drive you crazy. If you like complex colors, I think that you’ll
like most of the pigments. I’m especially happy with the fact that there
are several light shades that I feel work really well as lid colors or inner lid colors
and they’ll really help to open up the eyes. I also think that they’ll work really well
with the mattes that Makeup Geek currently has, which in my opinion makes them ideal
for hooded eyes, because I like popping colors like this onto my lid and then using mattes
in the crease. I think that’s what looks flattering. If you are a fan of loose pigments, I think
that you’ll like these. If you like complex colors, I think you’ll
like most of these. If you don’t like working with loose pigments,
skip this because you’re just not going to like it. Even though I personally feel like this jar
design is not very messy, I think that if you’re somebody who really hates pigments,
even with a sifter, you’re just going to be annoyed. Now time for a little bit of story time. This past week, I had the roof replaced on
my house, and it went on all week. I didn’t get good sleep all week. I maybe got four hours a night of sleep that
wasn’t interrupted with banging and hammering and whatever. In addition to that, I had a problem with
my website, a major problem with my website where I had to go through every single blog
post and every single link on my site to hand code. That took me literally from Friday until Friday,
so I had a rough week. I’m really glad to have this video finally
done because I love Makeup Geek and I hated the fact that I really couldn’t work on it
during the week because I had to deal with my website issues and I had to deal with the
stuff around my house. The previous week wasn’t that great either
because the previous week Phaedra had a seizure, which was awful and scary, so I just kind
of wanted this week to be done and I wanted it to be the weekend so that things would
be more relaxing and better, and today I finally got a good night’s sleep. I got seven and a half hours of sleep, and
I feel so much better. I am not somebody who can run on four hours
of sleep every night for a week. It wears me down. I can’t do it. I don’t know how people do that on a consistent
basis, because I can’t handle it. It makes me a zombie. It makes me cranky. In other news, I’m still obsessed with Legion. I just watched the most recent episode, and
I have all of these questions and theories in my head, and it’s killing me. I hate having to wait for the new episodes. In addition to that, I’m watching this BBC
show, it’s a UK show, with Dave called Misfits, which is actually really cute. It’s interesting because the guy that was
Ramsay from Game of Thrones is in this show as a character named Simon. I hated the character on Game of Thrones,
but now that he’s in the show Misfits and he’s much more likable, I’m like, oh, he’s
not so bad. Then I remind myself, no, he did horrible
things. It’s kind of funny how when you watch a show,
it really shapes how you think about that actor. I know after I saw Jessica Jones, I could
not look at David Tennant the same way at all, and he was my favorite doctor from Dr.
Who. Anyway, what do you think of the new Makeup
Geek foiled pigments and lip glosses? Please be sure to let me know in the comments

    The glosses look really nice !

  • Ally S says:

    TBH I wish makeup geek would spend less on all the varying packaging for the products and make the products a bit cheaper.

  • AbbieJolie says:

    Yea, not a fair ratio of colors for those of us who prefer cool tones. Better days to come!

  • SaucerJess says:

    I'm so sorry you've been having a rough time. I hope all good things come your way soon!!!

  • TheUnquietGrave says:

    Misfits is my favorite show of all time. I think I've rewatched the entire thing 8 times. every season was genius! I'm glad you're giving it a go!

  • War Paintz says:

    Looking beautiful Mz. Courtney. Thanks for sharing some gorgeous makeup. All the best! πŸ’―πŸ™β€ PS: I had commented much to early, sorry to know that your dog is sick and happy to know you're feeling better.

  • Helen Kellogg says:

    I really like Vinyl, Backstage, and Acoustic but not enough to purchase. I definitely don't need anymore pigments. Tin Man and Voodoo are tempting.

  • Alyson Ben-Yehuda says:

    Marlena has been saying she wants MUG to be more like a mid range brand than high end or particularly affordable, so I think the $15 price reflects that. The glosses look nice, but I don't see myself reaching for them. Pigments look amazing…I'd rather just use her pressed duochromes though haha.

  • Sidra Vitale says:

    I'm not a big gloss person but after seeing them on you I want to try them. Thank you for swatching ON your lips! (I'm still loving Legion, too!)

  • Devin Marie Pillis says:

    Haha, badass green! Such beautiful colors, both the pigments and the glosses. Hope Phaedra is feeling better. Might have to add Misfits to our watch list.

  • Banshee Muse says:

    Great review, and I am like you I don't really like lip gloss, and the color Vinyl looked awesome on you. I am done with Makeup Geek, and I also do not use pigments either.

  • Dizzyknitsandcurls says:

    Thanks for the review, I wish the colors in the gloss were lipsticks not glossed they are pretty, I like the pigments, I love the browns, we have opposing philosophy I figure if I'm going to wear brown I want it to be a weird complicated special brown πŸ™‚ so glad you got some rest, I can't live without sleep either

  • Noelle Terry says:

    Thanks for the show ideas. I will give Legion and misfits a try. I recently had a hysterectomy and am off work for several weeks to heal. I am halfway through and starting to get major cabin fever.

  • Jane Smith says:

    i hate gloss but dam, those are soo nice! 😍😍😍

  • Zim M says:

    That green pigment is stunning! Same here, with David Tennant. He did a damn good job portraying Kilgrave, but now I can't see him in any role without immediately recoiling/feeling enraged ;_;

  • Eerie Conspiracy says:

    another great video! btw you look especially gorgeous in this video and omg the commonalities continue I'm a huge Supernatural junkie and so a huge Legion fan!!!!

  • CforCalamity says:

    Funny thing about Iwan Rheon: I saw him Misfits before GOT, so when he was playing Ramsay I was like, wtf this super cute squishy is the total bastard??? Talent, man.

  • HotMessNess MUA says:

    The prices don't bother me. I haven't been dissatisfied with anything until I got two of the iconic lipsticks . I just didn't like them and now I am stuck with them

  • HotMessNess MUA says:

    I want the pigments but I just never reach for pigments. They usually sit in a pretty box

  • Ryan Elmore says:

    I adore your look in this. You look simply stunning πŸ’œ

  • Kelly Lange says:

    Thank you for the reviews!

    I hope this week is better! πŸ’ŸπŸ¦„

  • Kay L says:

    OMG! I love Misfits! I still have a season or so to finish but I thought it was so cute and creative.

  • WARPAINTandUnicorns says:

    Watching Legion as well and I caved and read up on the character again because It's been a long time since I seen/watch anything about him…. I was left with more questions and alarming concerns/thoughts so don't do that!

  • M. S. says:

    Love Misfits!! Simon is my favorite character πŸ™‚

  • Liz Bzz says:

    lol about Ramsey and yes! totally true!!! pigments are so pretty, why do they have to be messy?? 😭 lol

  • Allison Cohen says:

    I love a couple of the glosses coz with my dry lips, gloss is best. I like several of the pigments including the browns, though I don't like loose pigments. I should just look at their duochromes. Glad your roof is finished and your site is back. What a drag all around.

  • Dev says:

    You look stunning in every video. I HATE loose pigments and glosses so this is all meh for me but I love love love MUG. They're highlighters are SO SO good! Don't really like that they're upping their prices, but what can ya do. I'm in love with the actor that played Ramsay, the character is absolutely horrible but the actor is simply adorable!

  • Jerri Davis says:

    I like the fuschia color looks great!!! Thank you for sharing. Jerri

  • Cruelty Free Luxe & Fab Beauty says:

    I'm really getting into pigments/textured shades-I got used to them in the pressed version with Natasha Denona Star Palette-but I don't really have any loose pigments, I think these are absolutely gorgeous! I agree, I really prefer the icy shades, and fun shades, because that's the fun of having a complex color/pigment, I agree! I really love the texture on these, like you said you can tell they are really pigmented, they look really smooth and rich and easy to apply! xo

  • Emily Rachel Gilley says:

    I'm tempted by these but I hate getting my hair stuck in lip gloss.

  • Ashley B. says:

    These are gorgeous!!

  • Korin M says:

    Foiled lips, whaaaaa?!!

  • haseena khan says:

    These glosses looks so creamy and thick! ❀ πŸ’„πŸ’„

  • Susan Gillam says:

    I love the show Misfits!! When I had Hulu it was my favorite show on there to watch!!

  • citrine1 says:

    I'm not a fan of glosses either but these do look very pretty!

  • Lola Seicento says:

    I love lip gloss, but not sticky formulas– therefore I think that I would really like this formula! Mixed Tape is AWESOME! I love the names from this collection, too!

  • Brooke P says:

    I loveeeeee Mixed Tape!

  • Erika Costello says:

    The pigments are pretty but I'm not wild about loose shadows, at this stage. The glosses are lovely but I have so many that I need to work through that I dare not buy more!

  • SandyL says:

    Oh I like the VIP gloss, peachy goodness!

  • Deborah Mackenzie says:

    they have some lovely shades.

  • Cosmetopia Digest says:

    I'm not a gloss person either. These do look incredible though!

  • Cindy Gordon says:

    That looks like a fun color at the start of your video! I am always looking for new colors. I have a hard time getting "outside of my color box" πŸ™‚ I love that it is not sticky and hugs your lips! I love gloss!

  • Marcia Friedman says:

    The pigments are beautiful. I love the first two you showed and one of the taupe grays. I'm not a big gloss fan but I do wear them because I love the look.

  • Lwhitney says:

    I love all of the metallic finishes that brands are coming out with recently. I've craved it my whole life!!! It's nice to see all of the sparkles, shimmer and shine.

  • Bailey ! says:

    I haven't worn gloss in quite a while, but I am really liking the look of the shades and that they're so pigmented.

  • Southeast by Midwest says:

    I'm loving your hair!! Thanks for sharing your thoughts on these.

  • Mary W says:

    Would be nice to have a gloss last up to 6 hours for a change.

  • Kristina Vieweg says:

    I like the look of these glosses even though I'm not a gloss girl. I like the first few and Drumroll!

  • jenny koppy says:

    That "vinyl" lip color looked bomb with your eye look! I hope sweet Phaedra is on the road to recovery!

  • Stephanie Louise Telford says:

    You really look gorgeous here darlin! I haven't tried these quite yet!
