Medusa’s Makeup Bag March 2017

IMG_4939

Hey lovelies,

Long time no chat. Quick life update: I feel like I’m still adjusting to having 3 kids. There are some days where I feel like I have things handled, and other days where I’m sitting in the floor wondering, “Will this ever get easier?” So, that’s why I randomly pop in and out of here.

I do have a quick unbagging that I want to do. I’ve been subscribed to Medusa’s Makeup for several months now, and if you’re not new to my blog you probably already know that. Their subscription is still relatively new though. It’s a vegan/cruelty free option and costs $15.95 per month. I usually receive 3-4 full sized products. Typically, I’ve received a good mixture of eye and face products every month and a lip product. This has quickly become one of my favorite subscriptions!

Okay, let’s go over what I received in March.

  1. Stick it eye primer- At first I thought this was a previous item I received, but I mistook it for the glitter primer which comes in the exact same packaging. I love the glitter primer and I can’t wait to try the stick it eye primer! I prefer tacky primers when applying loose shadows on my lid.
  2. Lipstick in “Lydia”- this is a GORGEOUS lavender shade that’s perfect for Spring. I really love Medusa’s Makeup lipsticks and the packaging, so I’m happy to add another to my growing collection.
  3. Loose eye pigment in “Wasabi”- Green! Because of March! Okay, I truly do love shades of green eyeshadow so I know this one will get used. I love these loose shadows, especially under a dark base like Nyx’s jumbo eye pencil in black bean.
  4. Lip paint in “Get Lucky”- This is a new item to Medusa’s Makeup! I was so excited to try out their liquid lipsticks….but this one is bright pink. We all know how I feel about bright pink lipstick. However, I am curious about this formula so I will likely try it out one day when I’m at home doing nothing to see how it wears.

Overall thoughts: This bag was almost a total winner for me other than the bright pink shade of lipstick. I always feel that I get a good variety of products from this subscription, and I have not gotten bored yet with it all being the same brand. If you’re subscribed to this bag, what are your thoughts on it? I would love to hear them! If you want to sign up yourself, just go to medusasmakeup.com

They even take paypal, which is another plus for me and for anyone else that dislikes putting credit card info on sites.

Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed this short and sweet little unbagging. Feel free to chat with me about anything in the comments.

Medusa’s Makeup Bag January 2017

img_3241

Hello Beauties,

Another day, another unbagging. If you’ve been on my blog before, you’ll know that Medusa’s Makeup is the newest beauty subscription I started to try, and it’s quickly becoming a favorite of mine!

Medusa’s makeup sends out 4 full sized products every month for $14.95. This brand is a vegan and cruelty free brand, and sells an amazing amount of varied products.

This month, I received two full sized eye products, a full sized lipgloss, and a cute little thing of beauty oil.

Spark Note (White glitter)– I have used this glitter constantly since I got it. You all know I love a glitzy and bold inner corner, and this is the perfect shade for me. It’s bold and it’s not too chunky so it adds the right amount of “ummph” to my smokey eyes. This is probably my favorite item this month by far, and I will likely run out of it.

Purple Rain (full sized eye pigment)– Ow, my heart has still not recovered from losing Prince. I love the name of this pigment, and the shade. Purple is probably the one color outside of neutrals I feel comfortable working with. I love how it looks against green eyes. In general I love the eye pigments from Medusa’s Makeup and I’m always happy to see them included in bags.

Space Kitten (gloss)– Okay, as much as I’m trying to use gloss more…I’m a little tired of getting them. I have several sitting around at this point and I’m looking at them like, “what do I do with you?” I might try the new eye trend and use it on my eyes though and see how that works. I just can’t stand the feeling of most glosses on my lips. I will wear one at some point and then go weeks without picking one up again.

Maracuja Oil– This looks like a tiny sample, but with oils that are 100% a very tiny bit is going to go a long way. I’m always happy to get beauty oils in my subscriptions bags. I have very dry skin so I use oils for about everything from skin care to blending out cream products on my face. I’m happy to add this one to my little stash.

That was everything in my bag from January. What are your thoughts on this subscription? I don’t have a referral link or anything, but if you’re interested in signing up, just go to medusasmakeup.com. It’s so easy, and they even accept paypal! I’m happy with this bag in general, and I always love getting full sized products that I know I will use.

If you have any vegan/cruelty free beauty subscriptions, send me some recommendations. I always love hearing from you all.

As always, thank you for stopping by and I hope you decide to stay for awhile if you’re new to my blog.

Medusa’s Makeup Beauty Subscription August 2016

medusa's makeup

Hey beauties,

Long time no chat. I’m back today with a relatively exciting new unbagging. I was on Instagram and I saw this neat little beauty subscription floating around from Medusa’s Makeup. Some brands (like elf) have brand specific beauty subscriptions, but I haven’t personally seen many. What really caught my eye was that this is a vegan and cruelty free brand! So, this was pretty new and exciting to me. I decided to give it a try and I subscribed last week.

This beauty subscription is monthly, and it’s $15.95 per month, shipping including in the US but there is a $4 charge for international subscribers. Each bag is promised to have 4-5 full sized products from Medusa’s Makeup, amounting to close to $40 (per their website).

I subscribed last Friday, and I received my August bag on Thursday, August 18. So, the turnaround time from subscribing to having your bag in your mail box is pretty quick, in my opinion.

Moving on to what was in my bag this month, I received 2 full sized lip products and 2 full sized eye products. My two favorite types of makeup products to play around with! I was already very impressed and excited from that alone. Another reason why I’m excited is because I haven’t tried too many things from this brand in particular. I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy and others for so long, I feel like I’m starting to get duplicates and things that I will never use and just get tossed aside. For me, full sized products are easier to see, and thus, easier to try and use.

Okay, let’s get into what came in the bag:

1. Lipstick in Baroque $12– I really love the packaging of these lipsticks! Even the box is adorable. This shade is a purple-y pink shade with a little bit of a sheen to it. I do like shades like this, so I’m excited to try this one out and the formula. I kinda miss my classic bullet type lipsticks after all the liquid lipstick hype.

2. Lipgloss in Lover Boy $9– I also really love the packaging of this gloss. I actually already have a gloss by Medusa’s Makeup from a past Lip Monthly bag, and I do remember liking the formula and I didn’t find it to be too sticky. This is a very bright pink, and we all know how I feel about pink. Not too sure how much use I will personally get out of this gloss, but it is a really nice product and shade.

3. Eye Dust in Brown Sugar $7– I love loose shadows and eye dusts! These are some of my favorite products to receive and play around with. This shade is a really deep and rich shade of brown, which will be perfect for Fall when warm and burgundy smokey eyes come back to grace the makeup scene.

4. Eye Glitter in Ozone $7– This is such a pretty shade of blue. Blue is a shade that normally scares me, but I’ve been trying to use it more, especially after seeing the many blue and glittery smokey eyes Risa Dexter does on Instagram. I love glitter, and I hope to get more from this brand in the future.

Overall value: $35

Definitely not a bad mix of products for a beauty subscription. The great thing about this subscription is that you can cancel at any time, there are absolutely no strings attached. So, if you see a month’s bag that you want and you only want that bag, you can subscribe and get it, and cancel and do it as you wish. I honestly think that’s awesome, and maybe that’s a perk to an actual brand running their own subscription. They don’t exactly rely solely on the amount of subscriptions there are, so people can pick and choose as they please.

I’m very happy with this subscription so far, and I will remain subscribed. So, if you want to see more reviews on this and my other subscriptions, make sure you follow me or sign up for emails. You can also follow me on other social media sites.

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days.

Glamour Doll Eyes Review

glamour doll eyes

Hey lovelies,

I have an indie brand to review today! Someone from Glamour Doll Eyes was kind enough to contact me and ask if I would be interested in reviewing and using some of their eyeshadows. I agreed after reading Phyrra rave about these and discovering that they are indeed cruelty free and have vegan options. We all know I’m an indie brand fan girl, especially with my eyeshadows.

I was sent 6 loose shadows of my choice to try. Their loose shadows are $6 each for full sized, and they have sample size options starting at a little over $1, which is something I love about quite a few indie brands. I have never used a whole eyeshadow…ever. It’s rare that I even hit pan on any. So, having an option to try a sample out is amazing, because then if I truly love it I can commit to a full size without feeling guilty.

First off, the packaging is pretty adorable. I love the little photo and logo on the lid. These also arrived without a sifter, which is a plus for me. I actually hate sifters in anything. I don’t know why, I find them to be super annoying. Maybe that’s just me.

IMG_7858

When I opened these up it was very reminiscent of my other loose indie brand shadows. Finely milled and super pretty. I tried to pick out some neutral matte and shimmer shades and a couple of fun shades to get a feel for all their formulas.

This is an online brand, which means you can only find them on the Glamour Dolls website.

My review: I found these eyeshadows to be easy to work with and blend out overall. They lasted all day on my eyes with primer, and are very pigmented. Loose shadows tend to be more pigmented, in my opinion, simply because it’s easier to get product on a brush. Now, as always with loose shadows, I recommend tapping your brush or putting your eye makeup on first before your face makeup. This will prevent fallout ruining your face makeup if you’re new to loose shadows. I’ve always enjoyed loose shadows though and own quite a few!

IMG_7859

Swatches from bottom to top:

Catrina: Not vegan. This is a gorgeous light purple with a blue/gold duo chrome effect. This shade is pretty light by itself and needs a glitter primer or white base to show up more true to shade.

Chivalrous: Vegan. Red with gold shimmer. This one was a little harder to swatch with a brush. Still a gorgeous shade if you love reds and gold.

Charming Society: Vegan. Sheer/White (on my skin tone) shade with green, blue, and gold shifts. This looks so stunning as an inner corner highlight! Probably my most used shade so far from what I have tried. Highly recommend.

Martini Olive: Vegan. Deep matte green. This shade is so lush and a must have if you love green and olive shades. This is my second most used shade because I have a thing for deep olives and forest green.

Unveil: Vegan. Deep almost maroon red with a slight purple shift. This shade is right up my alley for the crease and outer corner. Creates a gorgeous maroon smokey effect!

Undead: Vegan. This is described as a black shade, but in my opinion this is more maroon with hint of purple. This is still so lovely though! If you’re into intense shades this would be a great alternative to black in a smokey eye.

Overall, I love the shades I picked out and will definitely be purchasing some more myself in the future. I kind of want to check out some pressed shades. Many of the loose shadow shades are also in pressed form, which is pretty neat.

If you’re interested in purchasing any shades I mentioned here or in anything (except pressed products) I do have a coupon code. It’s not an affiliate code, just one specifically for my followers! Use the code lunafaye at checkout to save 15% on your entire order!

If you’re purchased from this brand before, what are your thoughts? Will you be making an order for any of these shades?

Tell me about your favorite indie brands in the comments! I’m always up to try new indie brands.

As always, thank for stopping by. I hope you all enjoyed this review!

Current Beauty Favorites

Hey lovelies,

I posted a new video on my youtube channel! I did’t post my May favorites and we’re into July, so I decided just to do my current beauty favorites.

Not a whole lot since it’s Summer and applying makeup makes me feel miserable at times, but there’s still quite a bit.

Please like it and subscribe if you want to see more videos! There’s also a giveaway linked in the description box.

Pregnancy update: I am now 28 weeks which means I am in my third trimester. That’s right, this is the home stretch…no pun intended. I am due in late September, and chances are I will have some things scheduled starting in September and then I will taking a short leave on all platforms, including Instagram, to soak up newborn love.

City Color Cosmetics Highlighter Haul + Review

city color cosmetics

Hey lovelies,

Today I have a review outside of my normal palette review! I wanted to share some highlighters that I bought from City Color Cosmetics during their Memorial Day sale.

I had seen so many people rave about their highlighting trio a few months back when Ipsy sent them out to others, but I did not get one in my bag, unfortunately. I love highlighters! I already know I’m not the only one. They’re very trendy right now, and I am too pale to play around with too many contouring products. However, I’m always down to douse myself in highlight and blind everyone with my shiny glazed glam.

I always love trying out affordable and cruelty free items. Highlighters seem to be something many are willing to drop $40+ on, but do we always have to? Surely, there’s some amazing high end quality highlighters out there that don’t make my bank account heave.

So, that’s why I wanted to order some City Color Cosmetics highlighters during their Memorial Day sale. The eyeshadow is technically not a highlighter, but I saw a post where Dupe That compared it to Becca’s Pearl and I wanted to give it a try on my face.

I ended up getting the highlighting #1 trio which retails for $8.99 on citycolorcosmetics.com. This comes with 3 different shades, which is essentially $3 per highlight at full retail price.

Overall thoughts: I am really loving this trio! I have reached for it so often this past month. I can’t really pull off the gold shade with my skin tone, but the other 2 shades in the palette still make this worth it for me. If you have very fair skin like I do, you will probably also love the pinky and champagne shades in this trio. The pink one isn’t super pink so it still looks semi natural, and the champagne one isn’t too warm or a champagne for my cool toned skin.

Here is a photo of this trio on my cheeks:

IMG_7237

I find this trio to be buttery smooth and so easy to blend! So, you can pack that glow on and you will still be able to blend it into your skin properly. I use the Japonesque slanted contour and highlighting brush most of the time when using this trio.

Next up is the city chic eyeshadow in Skinny Latte. This retails for $4.99 on their site. I have never truly used an eyeshadow as a highlight, but this one was a great one to start with! Out of both items I purchased, I have used this one the most. It’s such a perfect shade for fair skin. I don’t find it to pull too white, it has a slight champagne sheen to it which makes it perfect.

IMG_7308

It is a bit more of an “In your face” highlight, but that’s what I like, especially in the Summer.

city color highlights

Swatches from top to bottom: Skinny Latte, Highlighting Trio

As you can probably tell from the swatches, these shades are so smooth!

I am highly impressed with these highlighters, and I recommend them to anyone wanting to play around with some affordable products to make your skin glow!

If you have ever tried these, what do you think of them? Will you be ordering any for yourself? Give me some of your cruelty free and affordable highlight suggestions in the comments!

I hope you all enjoyed this quicker review. As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

One Shadow, Five Ways

my pretty zombie brisket

Hey lovelies.

Today, I wanted to do something a little different and show how to wear one incredible eyeshadow five different ways.

I know I’ve mentioned My Pretty Zombie Cosmetics a few times on my blog and on my youtube channel over the past couple of years. Her brand is one of the very first indie brands I ever ordered from, and it was love. This brand helped pave the way for what is now an obsession with indie brand makeup.

If you’re never been to her site, she sells a lot of badass loose pigments, blushes, and other face products. Sometimes she will release sets that include lipstick and nail polishes, and I mentioned one that was done for a charity not too long ago that you can read about here.

I was originally turned on to this brand by Victoria of Biohazardous Beauty. As soon as she said in one video a few months back the shade Brisket was one of her all time favorites, I knew I needed it.

The shade Brisket is the one I’m featuring today. It’s probably one of the most unique shades in my collection thus far. Which is saying something because we all know I have a plethora of palettes and single shadows.

I have used it on my Instagram page:

IMG_6729

I used Brisket on lids for this look, and it really pulled the eye look together, in my opinion. This is a shade that pulls burgundy/gold/red/orange depending on the light. It’s beyond duochrome. It’s magic.

my pretty zombie brisket

This is Brisket applied with a flat brush five different ways.

From bottom to top: over the hard candy eye primer, over nyx’s jumbo pencil in yogurt, nyx’s jumbo eye pencil in french fries, nyx’s jumbo eye pencil in rust, nyx’s jumbo eye pencil in black bean

I think this is why I love duochrome eyeshadows to begin with. It’s so easy to change the primer or base and create a different effect. It’s like having several different eyeshadows!

I really wanted to share Brisket today because it was one of those eyeshadows that I wanted for so long and it was definitely worth the wait. I am so happy with it!

If you’re also interested in getting Brisket or anything else from My Pretty Zombie, just enter myprettyluna at checkout to save some money. The site is myprettyzombie.com

What do you all think of smaller posts like this focused on one single product? What do you think about this eyeshadow? Comment down below! I love hearing from you all.

As always, thank you for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

Worth the Hype? Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette Review

too faced sweet peach

Hello beauties,

I have another palette review today! If you are on Instagram or really anywhere beauty related, you’ve probably seen the hype behind the limited edition Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. It’s a touchy subject for some, and it was for me for a few weeks. I collect palettes, Too Faced palettes are some of my favorites, and I knew I wanted to try this one. I missed every release for a week, and I’m normally a beast at online releases. Finally, I was able to snag one on HSN. I had to wait for a month for it to arrive to me. A MONTH.

So, is it worth all the virtual hype? That’s part of what I will be going over in today’s review.

First off, the packaging is your standard cuter-than-life Too Faced packaging. It comes in the long tin, much like the Chocolate Bar, and has a peachy ombre color to the front of it. If you’re a collector like myself, this packaging is already very aesthetically pleasing. I expect nothing less from Too Faced, their packaging is always very cute while remaining practical in terms of storage.

too faced sweet peach palette

When you open the palette up, before you can even take a look at the shades, your nose is graced by the smell of delicious peaches. I love the chocolate bar palette because it smells heavenly, and this one smells even yummier to me. I absolutely adore the scent of peaches, and I typically smell like a walking peach all year long.

Next you’ll probably notice that this palette is laid out a bit different than other Too Faced palettes. Normally, the food type palettes have 2 longer shades so the palette only has 16 shades, while this one has 18 shades, all in the same sized pans. I personally like this lay out so much better. Less space taken up equals more shades. It’s so rare that I would ever go through a shade that the longer ones normally are, so I definitely prefer to have more shades to play around with.

Price: $49

Accessibility: Good luck trying to find this palette right now.

I’m honestly not trying to be a smart ass when I say that. This palette has been a pain in the butt crack for so many people to get, to the point I’ve read people being in tears over not being able to get one. I have never seen a palette this hyped up and in high demand before, and I’ve been collecting palettes for awhile. I hope that Too Faced makes this palette permanent, maybe this is the soft pregnant heart of mine speaking, but I do wish everyone that wants this palette can get it.

Swatches:

too faced sweet peach palette

Bottom to top: white peach, luscious, just peachy, bless her heart, tempting, charmed I’m sure, nectar, cobbler, candied peach

too faced sweet peach palette

Bottom to top: Bellini, peach pit, delectable, peaches n cream, georgia, caramelized, puree, summer yum, talk derby to me

These were all swatched with no primer underneath and beneath indirect daylight bulbs.

My personal favorite shades in this palette are bellini, peach pit, puree, and summer yum. Peach Pit is such a rich and luxurious shade of brown. I die over it.

I found that all of these shades swatched much like the shades in my Chocolate Bar palette, smoothly and I was able to get a lot of product with little to no effort. This is why I love Too Faced shadows in general.

I do enjoy that there are lighter and deeper shades in this palette. This is something that I harp on a lot during reviews. I think the perfect palette has the potential create daytime and nighttime looks. Many palettes just kind of skip on the deeper tones, and that’s just weird to me. There are 4 true matte shades in this palette, but white peach can be blended out to a matte if needed, so more like 5 mattes, which is pretty decent, in my opinion.

As you can probably see, this palette is very warm toned. I’ll admit that I expected a few more true peach shades, but I found myself happy with the shades they did include. There’s peachy shades for more toned down looks, and a brighter one (candied peach) for those more daring. I also love the inclusion of purple in this palette. For some reason, peach and purple look so gorgeous together. It’s a color combo I didn’t expect to personally love.

I have played around with this on my eyes.

For this more simple peachy smokey eye, I used the shades puree, summer yum, bellini, white peach, and peach pit. All of the shades applied well with a brush and I had no trouble blending them out, but I was still able to create a layered look easily. Once again, this is why I personally love Too Faced shadows in general. For the most part (some flops here and there) I have always been impressed with how smooth their shadows apply on my lids. I have a feeling that I will be reaching for this palette often in the Summer. I am not one to wear just bronze shades or golds, but peaches I feel are flattering on fair skin. Though if you have a deeper skin tone than me, I feel this palette would be stunning on your eyes because there are several deeper shades and some beautiful bronzes.

Do I feel this palette is worth the hype? Yes and no

Yes, if you’re someone like me that loves collecting palettes and is a Too Faced fan girl. If you are able to find this at your local Ulta or Sephora, I do feel this is a palette worth picking up and trying. Even if you don’t like it, it’s so wanted right now that you could sanitize it and resell it easily to someone else that is searching for it.

No, if you’re truly frustrated and do not want to fool with it. I understand 100%. I lucked out when I bought mine. About 1 min after I placed my order, it was sold out once again. I think a lot of the shades in this palette can be duped. I know that Nyx’s golden peach prismatic shadow is pretty close to the Bellini shade in this palette. Also, the Morphe 35O (another favorite of mine) is a very warm toned palette with peaches and oranges, and that palette is permanent, whereas the Sweet Peach palette is limited edition. Warm shades and peachy shades are so trendy and in demand right now that I do feel this palette is pretty easy to dupe. If you’re feeling down, check sites like Makeup Geek and Morphe for single shadows, you’ll probably be surprised at what you can find, or take a look in your collection.

With that being said, I do not regret this purchase. As I mentioned before, I do collect palettes, and Too Faced is a brand that I do enjoy collecting from. This palette did satisfy my collector’s soul, but I am also happy with the quality of it. Too Faced did not let me down this time.

If you have this palette, what are your thoughts on it? I love reading your all’s diverse opinions regarding products. Also, if you don’t have this, do you want it? Or do you think you’ll pass on this very hyped palette?

I hope you all found this review informative or entertaining in some way. As always, thank you all for reading, and I hope you’re all having lovely days.

April Beauty Favorites

IMG_6574

Hey lovelies,

Another month, another favorites video. This month I had quite a few new products to talk about. For anyone curious, I did not include the Shaaanxo palette because I still want to play around with it a few more times before calling it a “favorite.” The Kat Von D quad made it because it’s one of the cutest palettes I’ve ordered in awhile, and the green in it really did knock my socks off. I have a look using it on my Instagram if anyone’s interested in seeing what I mean.

Random favorite of the month: anyone else catch my face in Shaaanxo’s April Favorites video at about 7:23? Someone on Facebook tagged me to let me know, and I was at my parents house and almost threw my phone across the room I was so excited. I’m dramatic, I know, but it really was an awesome moment for me considering Shannon is one of my favorite “big” beauty bloggers.

I also give a small pregnancy update in this video at the beginning for anyone that likes to keep up with my life outside of makeup. I hope you all enjoy it! I know it’s lengthy, and I’m going to work on cutting my favorites back down quite a bit. I don’t even realize I’m gushing about a product until I’m editing.

 

Also, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram if you want a chance to enter my 4k giveaway! Rules are on the post, and it ends Tuesday the 10th at 5 pm est. It’s not a huge giveaway, but I do want to show my appreciation for all the of the love and kindness I am continually shown by all of you.

My Pretty Zombie Snap Cats Charity Set

IMG_5656

Hello beauties,

I have something fun and exciting to share today! The owner of My Pretty Zombie (one of my personal favorite indie brands) contacted me and asked if I was interested in swatching and creating looks using her limited edition set for April. I was so honored and instantly agreed!

I’ve been ordering from My Pretty Zombie for awhile, and her loose shadows are some of my favorites. I ordered the limited edition shadow in “Ojo De Gato” last year, actually.

This set releases April 1, and there are only 40 sets like the one above available, so it’s very limited. Each set comes with a full sized shadow called Bear, a sample bag of Ojo De Gato, a nail polish to match Ojo De Gato, and a lipstick.

Each set is $21, and all the proceeds will go towards an organization called SNAP Cats. Snap Cats works to rescue special needs and elderly cats, which are usually the first ones put down in shelters, because they are not viewed as “adoptable.” Anyone that knows me well knows that anything to do with cats, specifically rescue cats, is near and dear to me. I support any organization that works to save lives, even when shelters feel they won’t find a home.

If you are an international babe that still wants this set, the owner is selling a set that doesn’t include the polish for $12. If you don’t want a set, but you still want to help out, the shadows Bear and Ojo De Gato will be available all month long.

As for the products themselves, none of them disappointed me.

The shadows Bear and Ojo De Gato are so gorgeous! As I mentioned before, I bought Ojo De Gato last year, and I was hooked on My Pretty Zombie’s shadows after that. In the right photo I have a swatch comparison of both. Bear is a very pretty sheer gold shade alone, perfect for Spring and Summer. However, this can be used wet or over top a glitter primer for a more reflective look. It can be an inner corner highlight, or used on the lid. It’s also lip safe, so it can change the look of any lipstick! It’s very versatile, which is something I love with loose pigments!

The nail polish is gorgeous as well. I’m not great at painting my nails, so I will spare you all the discomfort, but the polish looks like the Ojo De Gato eyeshadow. It’s a dark almost black shade that looks almost brown in some lights with gold and red reflects. It’s pretty thick, so keep that in mind, but I was done with my nails in one coat! Even though it was thick, I was able to get an even application.

IMG_5845

Lastly, we have the lipstick. The lipstick also matches the nail polish and eyeshadow. Here, I have Bear on top of it to give the lipstick a gold sheen. I’m obsessed with this combo! The lipstick is not matte, but applies evenly, and is very pigmented. It also smells like red velvet cake!

Overall, I highly recommend this set if you love indie makeup, especially indie makeup that’s being made for a great cause. Even though this set was sent to me, My Pretty Zombie makes incredible products, and I will always recommend her brand to others.

If you’re interested in purchasing this set, just go here (not an affiliate link): My Pretty Zombie 

I hope you all found this post informative in some way, and let me know if you decide to buy a set or shadow!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!
