Hello! I hope you're having a great start to the Valentine's Day weekend! I, sadly, have been quite ill this week and I'm still not feeling well (I actually started antibiotics today...). I've been neglecting a lot of things these last few days, but now I'm feeling antsy so I thought I'd try to write a blog post or two.
Somehow, I managed to skip over my first My Pretty Zombie Cosmetics order! I like to make blog posts that correspond to the order in which I post Youtube videos, but I must have overlooked my My Pretty Zombie (MPZ from here on out) video when I was glancing over my channel summary (...I am forgetful sometimes). Which is especially unfortunate because MPZ is pretty awesome!
MPZ is another indie cosmetic company that I initially glanced over during one of my Instagram exploration sessions (just look up #indiecosmetics or #supportindie and you can find some neat things), but I finally decided to order after Evolution Of A Foodie posted a review (if you're into indie cosmetics, I highly recommend looking through her reviews!). And, once again, I am very happy with my first order!
Some quick info about My Pretty Zombie Cosmetics: they've been around since 2010, they have a name similar to another indie cosmetics company (MPZ does not, nor ever has, made lipstick). The turn around time (TAT; the time it takes from when you order to when it will likely be processed) is listed at the top of the page; orders are processed/shipped about once a week so right now, for example, orders placed between 2/9-2/15 will ship 2/17 (and this will obviously change, but the current TAT is on the website). There is a special monthly color that goes on sale for $3, down from the regular price of $5 for a full size shadow; there are other occasional sales and deals, which you can find on the Facebook page. Neat!
Finally (sort of; I already talked about THC with the other free samples I got, but it was technically a freebie in this set, too), this is PCP, a "running naked from the cops peach with gold glitter". Perfect description. I've been really interested in trying a more peachy-orange kind of blush; it seems like it would look weird, but I've seen pictures of other people wearing it and it looks gorgeous.
There are a bunch of colors I want to get, and I was considering doing the "You Pick 5" eyeshadow deal since you basically get one free, but I decided to stick to my "as close to $10 as possible" rule when ordering from new indie brands so I got a "You Pick 3 Sample" pack instead. I knew for sure I had to get the color Brisket:
And that's my first My Pretty Zombie Cosmetics order! I know I say this pretty much every single time, but another perfect order! I even got more than I expected! I do wish I had gone and purchased the full sized shadows, but now I'm going to wait and see what the color of the month is for March and probably place another order then.You know, because I need more eyeshadow.
Thanks for reading! <3
