Makeup Geek Haulage

Hey zom'b lovers! This is officially my very first Haul blog post! As you could probably tell by the title, its from the makeup geek online store. The haul contains products I got from two separate orders, just added them together becuase I was waiting to get my new camera and in the meantime I got more stuff from her store. The owner/creator, Marlena, is such (as far as I can tell from her videos) a very sweet person and she does EXCELLENT video tutorials. Everything is simple enough for even beginners to be successful in creating either gorgeous, edgy, colorful or neutral looks. So without any further adieu, lets get started!
The First thing I want to talk about is the brushes. She has her own line of make-up brushes. They are all very good quality brushes, very VERY reasonably priced for the product you are getting.  These are the ones I got:

-MUG Deluxe Foundation Stippling Brush
-MUG Crease Brush
-MUG SMall Crease Brush
-MUG Pointed Crease Brush
-MUG Deluxe Outer-V Brush
-MUG Stiff Dome Brush (MAC 217 Dupe)

Next we can start in with ALL the NYX products I got. I just want to mention something about the palette shown in the picture. The one I chose was very similar as far as colors to a Kat Von D palette I was looking at on Sephora's site, when I saw the NYX one I was pretty excited because I do enjoy the texture of their pressed shadows. Here is a complete list:

-NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Palette "The Runway Collection" in Champagne & Caviar
-NYX Professional Makeup Puff
-NYX Pressed Shadow in Sahara
-NYX Pressed Shadow in High Light
-NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cherry

What is next is the Ben Nye pigments I got. I have heard a lot about their pigments so when I saw that Make-Up geek sold samples of them, I ordered a couple to try.  The two I got were:

-Ben Nye Loose Pigment in Cherry Red
-Ben Nye Loose Pigment in Ice

Here is a swatched pic of the pigments (dry and with my homemade mixing medium)

AND Last but DEFINITELY not least...SUGARPILL!!!! YAY! *Applause in background* I simply ADORE Amy, and she has created a very beautiful monster when it comes to her Sugarpill Empire!! Some of the MOST brilliant colors, my fav. eyeshadow brand as of right now and just all around the CUTEST stuff on the market! Sugarpill has solely made it my personal mission to make it to IMATS 2012 JUST to visit that booth and meet Amy! (OK STALKER!) LOL! I was on make up geeks store page and noticed she not only sells the Chromalust Loose Pigments, but she also samples some of them out. With that said, I picked up a few of them that I didnt already have the full sizes off. Here is a list of those:

-Sugarpill Chroma Lust Loose Shadow in Magentric
-Sugarpill Chroma Lust Loose Shadow in Paperdoll
-Sugarpill Chroma Lust Loose Shadow in Starling
-Sugarpill Chroma Lust Loose Shadow in Magpie

I hope you all enjoyed as much as I did, I love having new things to work with, makes this ZoMbEa HAPPY!! Stay doll, Lovlies!


  1. You're doing an phenomenal job Gen. Can give you some advice on the font and how to present the products. It will make the products the center of focus rather than the titles and draw your audience in. The font definitely needs to be adjusted, as well as the titles.

    Try to keep only two font types, using all the different styles for those fonts to promote the items you wish to address. I'll send you a few samples addressing what I'm talking about.

    You have a great way of presenting the information about the products and I see this really going places. Awesome hon!

  2. Loved The Haul. Your Blog Is So Wonderful, You Should Start Posting Videos Soon <3
