Makeup Geek Pigment In Utopia Is A Makeup Lover’s Delight: Swatches and Review

I Bought It

By Sheila Arkee

Unable to resist the siren call of gold eyeshadow, I became acquainted with and recently purchased Makeup Geek’s Utopia. It was a great decision, because Utopia has completely rocked my world.

While Utopia may look like a  pure antique gold glitter, it’s actually a beautiful shimmery shadow! You can vary the intensity of Utopia by using a dampened brush to pack on color.

Here’s Utopia – applied with a dry brush and frankly, not looking so swell.

And now, applied with a dampened brush. What an amazing difference!

The verdict? Utopia is awesome ! The only downfall I have is the inevitable shadow fall out this type of shimmer. Don’t fret, it’s easily wiped away. I’d suggest doing your eye makeup first so you can wipe away any errant shimmer.

This shimmery, big glitter is perfect. :) You can find Utopia and the other 9 Makeup Geek pigments online for $6.99.

    I have Utoppia. While it is absolutely beautiful, I’m somewhat confused as to how to apply it. Like you noted, it’s flaky when applied dry. When applied wet, it’s gorgeous, but i find that it gets all over my brow bone before it’s done drying. I have a hooded eyelid, so maybe it is just me…

    Lindsay – it is really tricky to apply. In my experience you have to emulsify it on the back of your hand with a mixing medium (or just water), treat it as a liquid shadow and allow it to dry down.
