    LOVE THIS! Single shadow videos are my absolute favorite. 💙💚💜 This has me feeling so inspired. Going to go make some custom palettes now. 😁✌

      You totally inspired me!! I sorted to color (I’ve always had a thing about keeping brands together but you helped me break it) and kept them all.
      Then I went back the next day and really went color by color and compared. I thought I wouldn’t get rid of any MUG but a lot of them were off, like yours. I emptied 2 z-palettes and 2 small ones. Thank you!!

          I’m in the same boat all my makeup geek shadows are like 6 years old 😬 Marlena said she will be launching a rebrand of MUG soon tho so maybe I can restock!

            Love single shadows. My fave are from Sydney Grace. I also like Anastasia's ones too.

              Did u have your Makeup Geek singles longer than the rest? Or is their shelf life just not very long?

                Oh my gosh all of these Make Up Geek shadows are giving me such nostalgia. They still make up the majority of my single eyeshadow collection, but to hear them talked about on camera gives me throwback feelings! Coco Bear is still my favorite matte eyeshadow of all time.

                  So many of those makeup geek shadows remind me of Jaclyn Hill.

                    I recently decluttered my single shadows. Now I have a huge, double sided palette and two single layer palettes. I have always kept the shadows according to color. I like not having to go from palette to palette looking for the "right" purple, etc. The only palette I have that's a brand palette holds my Lethal shadows, because I can't put square pans in with round (I just CAN'T).

                          I just did this yesterday! But I skipped going through my MUG collection because it's a collector's item by now..I have almost all their shadows 🙈

                            I have 8 single shadows... I might shuffle them around my one palette just for fun :-)

                              Bummer that most of the swatches are out of focus :(

                                Hi Lauren, you may have already disposed of your unwanted shadows. But I thought I would say that Colourpop ‘Kill Switch’ 20:08 is a great shade for a one-shadow brown Smokey eye. I’m like you, where I don’t usually like glitter in matte shades, but this is my exception.
                                It’s worth trying.
                                It’s that good.

                                LOVING this video. My all-time favourite type of video because I only buy single shadows now. And it’s wonderful to hear your opinions.
                                Cheers 🥂 🍾 💖

                                      When I did my single shadows I put them all in a shoebox lid so they were less precarious -- granted I live with 2 dogs who are curious, my 2 yo nephew, my mom, 2 brothers and my sister in law soooo I needed to be able to quickly move it off the table if I needed to.

                                          Lovely video. It was nice seeing your hand get colourful with swatches and it was interesting seeing all the shades and hearing your thoughts.

                                            I have my single shadows arranged the exact same way in the exact same palettes (except I don’t have the Clionadh shadows.) I’ve got a neutrals and warms palette, a greens and blues palette, and a mauves and purples palette. I just don’t have any empty slots in any of them... I think that means that I don’t need anymore single shadows. 😉

                                                I’ve been having fun bringing out and using my single shadows, too, lately!

                                                  this is how i found you lauren, years ago when you were doing you declutters and that you had too much makeup, i think you were the first one (i saw) who talked about having too much.

                                                    I didnt see DUperstar by looxi. Next time you pick something up from them, see if you can snag it. Its so gorgeous, a purpley pink-blue duochrome bright

                                                      People are going to think I’m crazy but I have depotted almost all of my pallets. I have arranged them all by color family and I love it!!!!!!!!! I am so inspired to use my makeup now after being in a rut for so long.

You've easily surpassed every other YouTuber I watch at this point and I can truly say I look forward to your videos every day. Please don't stop, you really bring the creativity and fun that was missing here on YouTube.

I went down memory lane to when makeup geek ran the YouTube game and singles were everything. Reorganizing them made me excited to reach for them again!

But it also breaks my heart to trash them 💔 I already trashed the ones that crumpled. Im still hanging on to the ones that look/feel good.

                                                                                      Hey Lauren! So I know that the rule of thumb is that if a powder product has changed texture is probably time for it to go. However, is this a preference thing or does it create a health risk for your eyes? Just curious! I know smell would be a very obvious sign that there could be nasty bacteria, but texture doesn’t seem quite as obvious

                                                                                      • S. Kenzig
                                                                                        S. Kenzig  3 weeks back

                                                                                        So a change in texture and smell especially signals a change in the formula--likely bacteria,old or something in the formula has expired/gone off. Unless the color has changed drastically it can be from the sun fading the pigments but most of us aren't leaving a palette with a clear lid or a palette open in the sun to cause this.

I'd do that to almost everything otherwise. I love customizing, optimizing and organizing my stuff so much lmao.

                                                                                        • Tessa Bean

                                                                                          @Justyna Wisniewska right? I think having smaller pallets that you can customize at will to work from are just easier... I have a few shades in some of my morphe pallets that I just adore and then the rest are just meh so at this point why let them take up space?

                                                                                          Could be an awesome idea. You could also have a few small magnetic palettes and put together your own custom palettes to use for a week or something. Or when you like some new palette coming out trying to dupe the color scheme with the singles. Just so many possibilities with single shadows. IMO that's way better than having those huuuge morphe palettes.

I took a bunch of notes, but there were 2 called Faded and Kid that you didn't say where they were from? I'd like to order them, if you could point me in the right direction? Thank you so much again!💙💗
