My Pretty Zombie’s Garnish

An attractive shade…that doesn’t apply too well, unfortunately. I had the best results applying it dry, patting it over primer…but the usual soft sweep-across that I do to get rid of any excess showed me some thinner spots. The wet application was uneven because this shadow does not like mixing with water. This is, unfortunately, standard behavior for most MPZ matte shadows. Using a different mixing medium, or applying over a partially damp base, may yield better results.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

I think I have some similar shades, but don’t know if I have any exact matches. This is almost a “primary” green, but the color has a little more depth.
