My Pretty Zombie’s In Rust

About the same color depth as a younger pumpkin - not one that's all Halloween-ready, with a mellowed orange, but not one that's only just achieved the “Look Ma No More Green” shade either. (Shut up, work with me.) I wouldn't call this a “rust orange”, but there's definitely a bit more depth upon application, than you see when this color is in the pot.

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeshadow in the pot; top right, the eyeshadow mixed with water and applied to bare skin; bottom left, the eyeshadow applied dry over primer.

The coverage is very good, very solid. There's enough depth that cooler-toned folks can wear this shade without too much trouble - just be careful what colors you pair it with, to downplay the warmth and bring out the actual color. I did think this color was going to be a bit deeper, though - closer to MPZ's Scurvy, but not quite as vivid. I think this shade would best complement brown or blue eyes, and possibly deeper hazel.
