Spring is on the Horizon!
… and everyone is taking notice! MakeupGeek just released four new shades as part of their Spring line. These include shades Rapunzel, Poppy, High Tea and a reformulated version of the existing Wisteria shade. What a beautiful conglomeration! As you might expect from the regular line of eyeshadows, these are buttery, soft, easy to apply, blend and will not fade after extending wear.
I did see a noticeable difference in the new formulation of Wisteria compared to the original version. While I really love the first Wisteria version, this one has a slightly different finish (I feel like it’s more matte?) and the texture is a little easier to blend out than the first one. The color is a little more purple to me now, too. I feel like this one is a little more vibrant compared to the original. Is it worth getting the new formula for Wisteria if you already have the first one? I think so, because if you loved the first one, you’ll be head over heels for this one!
Get these new colors from MakeupGeek here!
And I can’t just show you these new beauties without throwing in a couple of looks … can I? 😉
To create the above look:
- Use High Tea to deepen and define the crease
- Blend out the edges of High Tea towards the brow with Poppy
- Blend out the edges of Poppy towards the brow with Peach Smoothie
- Apply Rapunzel onto the lid
- Apply High Tea to the lower lashline (optional)
To create the above look:
- Apply Wisteria into the crease
- Apply Mermaid on the inner half of the lid
- Blend Center Stage on the outer half of the lid and into the outer v
- Apply Caitlin Rose onto the lower lashline
The colors are beautiful!
I agree!! I am in love with Poppy!! Which one grabbed your eye, Dominique?!
Poppy! With all the great advices you gave me I`ll be able to incorporate this color with ease!
So beautiful! Am curious, how similar is Poppy to MAC’s Ablaze LE? I love the first look! And I may just have to get the new and improved Wisteria despite already having the original 😉
Hi Peggy! I would say Poppy is more of a mixture of MAC’s Red Brick and Ablaze; it’s a warm orangey-red – really pretty! You would love the new Wisteria!
Thank you for showing these. I had no idea they were out already. I had to order them all. Love the looks you created. You always do an amazing job. Thanks so much, xoxo Gina
Thank you so much, Gina! 🙂 xoxo!

Beautiful! love both looks especially look 2!!
That one is UBER beautiful!!
I love both of these looks! Beautiful eye color so it works for those colors. Unfortunately I have brown eyes, will these looks still work for me?
Absolutely! Brown eyes can wear any and every color, especially blues, greens and pinks! 🙂
I love high tea! Is there a Mac dupe I may already have?
Hi Melissa! Hmm, it reminds me a LOT of Coquette – more of a green-brown. I haven’t compared them side by side, but I think if you used Coquette in its place you’d get a VERY similar effect! 🙂
Thanks! I’m trying to narrow down ones I want- so trying to get rid of ones I may have a close dupe for.
Is rapunzel close to ricepaper?
They are similar in color, but the finish is slightly off; I’d say Ricepaper has more sheen to it than Rapunzel, but Rapunzel is not a flat, matte eyeshadow 🙂
