Makeup Geek Mai Tai Eyeshadow Review

Hello everyone,

Continuing with my reviews on Makeup Geek eyeshadows, this review will be on the duochrome shade “Mai Tai.”


Product Description:

Wish you were lounging poolside sippin’ on mai tais? Well, what are you waiting for? Order a Mai Tai (umbrella stir stick not included)! Aside from being buttery and pigmented, this dazzling duochrome will transport you to a tropical paradise. Cheers to that. About Makeup Geek Eyeshadows- These are all highly-pigmented – just check out the swatches! – Half the price of high end shadows without sacrificing quality – These pans can be placed in empty palettes such as Z-Palettes. – Eyeshadow pan weight is 1.8G / 0.064 oz – With a separate palette, you can build your own custom palettes – All our shadows are cruelty-free — we do not test our products on animals. These eyeshadows are Talc and Paraben-Free.


$6 each for both the regular and the duochrome eyeshadows.


My Experience with Makeup Geek Mai Tai Eyeshadow:

Packaging: These eyeshadows come in pan which you have to pop in a magnetic palette. I do like the flexibility this provides for customizing a palette based on your needs but this also means you have to shell out extra to buy the Z palette on top of buying the eyeshadow.


Pigmentation/Shade/Finish: Mai Tai is described as an apricot base with orchid reflects. This shade is a duochrome, which means it looks different under different angles of light and its true beauty is hard to catch on camera. On some angles, it has more of a pink shift, while in others, it has more of an orange-coral shift. The base is a light coral pink. This shade is very pretty and gives a romantic vibe, but my problem with it lies with its pigmentation. It gives off semi opaque coverage in one layer which is more due to the light nature of the color than the lack of pigmentation and I feel like I need at least 2-3 layers to make the color shine and it performed better over a tacky primer.


Texture and Blendability: This shade has a smooth, soft, easy-to-work with texture. It packed nicely on the lid with a flat eyeshadow brush without causing fallout and did not feel gritty to touch. The shimmers are extremely finely milled.

Staying Power: This shade has a good staying power and wore 7-8 layers on me without creasing.



Overall, I am thoroughly enjoying using these Makeup Geek eyeshadows and while this shade is still good, it is not amazing. I dug out a similar shade to this from my collection – Urban Decay Fireball, which is just a touch more red than Mai Tai, but still, I call them dupes and I find the UD one better in terms of pigmentation, but if you are on a budget, the MUG version is still good.



In the EOTD, I have “Mai Tai” on the lid with “Frappe” in the crease and “Bitten” in the outer V (all from Makeup Geek).


Pros of Makeup Geek Mai Tai Eyeshadow:

  • Affordable.
  • Buying individual shades helps you customize a palette exactly to your liking.
  • Amazing high quality.
  • Beautiful peachy duochrome shade.
  • Smooth, soft, easy-to-work with texture.
  • Does not cause fallout.
  • Good staying power and does not crease.
  • Affordable version of the UD Fireball shade

Cons of Makeup Geek Mai Tai Eyeshadow:

  • You do have to shell extra bucks to buy a Z-palette to put these pans in.
  • This particular shade had to be built in 2-3 layers to achieve opacity.
