My Pretty Zombie’s 13 Gypsies

I didn't think that I'd care for this color much, based on vendor photos. Once there was a good in-action/on-the-lid photo, though…I saw more of the metallic, and knew I had to pick this one up. This is almost an “oiled brass”. It looks like it might have been created for the original Elemental Lustres collection, which had more “tarnished” metallics than its successor Alchemie.

Application is very smooth, and there isn't a whole lot of “sooty” leave-behind - though one might think that there would be, with a color that presents like this one. It just applies very smoothly, and stays in place fairly well - though I get better results when I add a light mist of fixative spray.

I think that most cooler-toned folks may have some problems wearing this one, unless you either have red-to-auburn hair, blue eyes, or a “fuck it I liked Aged Orange metallic and I'm wearing it” attitude. (For me…two out of three.)
