My Pretty Zombie mNg collection!

My first MPZ haul!
I had heard about My Pretty Zombie (MPZ) awhile ago but had never really been interested in ordering from them until mNg from "I'm Not Skinny, So What?" had Andrea custom make her collection of gorgeous pinks known as the mNG collection. After I saw the swatches mNg posted of her custom collection I knew I had to order them!

mNg Collection
My packaged arrived in a standard yellow bubble mailer I believe about 7 or 8 business days after I placed my order which is a fairly standard TAT for most small MMUCs. My mNg collection came in a hot pink organza bag along with 3 samples, a hand written thank you, my invoice, 2 business cards and a plastic spider. I like that Andrea puts a lot of detail into her packaging.

 Her full size eyeshadow jars do not have sifters but they do come shrink-wrapped to protect against product loss. I always love when a company shrink wraps as it makes it look more professional. The full size shadows are labeled on the bottom with the list of ingredients. Her labels are rather difficult to read though because of the font so I think that in the future the font should be changed to something that's easier to read.

Free samples! Who doesn't like free?!?
On to the shadows...I love how silky smooth these eye shadows are. They glide on very smoothly and with very little effort on my part. As you can see from the swatches, the eye shadows are very highly pigmented and overall really gorgeous. The freebie samples she included were also quite generous. =)

mNg #1 - The darkest pink of the three in the collection, this one is a gorgeous fuchsia leaning slightly more towards the purple side. This has a pretty little aqua/green duochrome to it.

mNg #2 - I believe this is the boldest pink of this collection. I would say this one is a hot pink with gold iridescent shimmer. This also has a fair amount of red/orange tone in it.

mNg #3 - This one is the lightest pink of the three. This is a slightly sheer light fuchsia with green iridescent shimmer...and in case you're is not possible to pick a favorite of these three. =P

Free samples
Rabies - A very pretty shimmery aqua/teal. Super gorgeous color particularly since I'm currently obsessed with teals/aquas right now.

Hangover - I was pleasantly surprised by this color. I didn't realize it was a matte until I swatched it. This is a gorgeous bright bubble gum pink!

Thunderpants - The picture shows this shade darker than it is in real life. This is more of an antiqued bronze color with teal glitter. Very unique and I definitely want a full size of this one.

Andrea, the owner of MPZ was very easy to work with and she clearly cares for her customers. I'm not really a fan of the bloodied and mutilated barbie dolls or the zombie theme but it is something I can look past (I generally do not like horror/gore/zombies). I do like the eye shadows I received this time around and already have another package from her on its way to me! =)

5 out of 5 Glittery Bubbles

**All products were purchased by me with my own money (except the free samples which are included with all orders). I was not compensated in any way, shape or form for this review. All opinions are my own.

I'm in LOVE with MPZ and all my eye shadows from the store. Not to mention, Andrea gives top notch customer service.

Glad that you love the mNg Trio. And thanks to your swatch, I think I'm starting to want a jar of Thunderpants ;)

@Katt, you MUST get the mNg trio!

@Liz, I will take you up on your challenge ;) once I play with them for awhile.

@mNg Thunderpants is FABULOUS in real life! The pic so does not show the teal glitters in it!

So pretty! I was considering ordering the mNg trio from MPZ. I may have to now! Thanks for the swatches and review!

Amanda S. said...

@Zillah, what colors did you get? I just received my second order from her this afternoon!

@Peach mNg is a must if you love pinks!

Thunderpants looks awesome, and I especially like the look of mNg #2 :) I agree about that font being difficult to read!

Amanda S. said...

@Jerry, Thunderpants is awesome! Definitely must get a full size!
