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.
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.
