Thanks but No Thanks said the......

Makeup Geek.

About a month or so ago, I responded to an ad for a freelance copywriter position with YouTube sensation turned make-up guru MakeUp Geek. I made it through all of the segments of the process but I received the infamous "Thanks but no thanks" letter.

My first reaction was to feel some kind of way, but the end of the email had a prize! A prize for not winning; really; shut your mouth. Yes the prize for making it through all the rounds but not being selected was to pick 6 shadows from the Makeup Geek collection.

I selected;

  • Wisteria   
  • Mango Tango
  • Preppy
  • Mocha
  • Pretentious
  • Latte

How would you style these colors? Have you ever used Makeup Geek's products?

I love a neutral face, but I couldn't resist some one of the bold colors; Mango Tango.

Thanks but no thanks turned out to be a win for me.



That's a good thanks but no thanks. I don't wear makeup but the colors sound nice for the summer.

I love bold colors!!!!!! Great win!!!

I'm scared of eye makeup,but these colors sound nice! Can't wait to see how they look on you

Just play around with them at home. I am taking more chances with my shadows. Your always a winner!

What a great decline gift lol. #winning

Either way, you stay winning! I can't wait to see you try these colors out. I hope you share pics with us ;-)

Those neutral colors are nice. Although you didn't get the gig, you left with something nice.
