My Pretty Zombie Swatches and First Impressions!

I feel like it's been awhile since I've done a first impressions review.  Since my collection has grown rather large, I try to limit how many new shops to try out.  I've had my eye on My Pretty Zombie for awhile because of their science/morbid themed names and beautiful duochromes.  After listening to their interview on beauty podcast, This Week in Makeup, I decided to finally take the plunge.  I enjoyed the interview as well as the owner's personality.  I also participated in an exchange with some of my indie friends and received some more MPZ products from my awesome partner.

If you haven't listened to the TWIM interview, the owner stated that she doesn't read reviews, but does read emails.  I ended up emailing her because of how ecstatic I was from all the extra Halloween goodies that were included in my order.  She included some fake teeth, notepads, candy, and a pencil.  It really made me feel like a kid again and I loved it.  So again, thank you, Andrea!

Overall, my first impression of MPZ is wonderful!  The products are great and the owner, Andrea, is a delight to talk to.  They recently just released a blush called Tramadol and that really tickles me because it's something we actually use at work (except our Tramadol is white and not good as a blush at all).  I'll definitely be keeping my eye out for future releases and I'm really glad I finally tried them out :)
