Recently I purchased a shadow from My Pretty Zombie on Etsy, and was sent some additional shadows for review.
I was extremely dismayed when I opened the shadow that I ordered because it came in a 5 gram jar, but looked like it was a sample. I fully expected that the shadows she sent me would be sample sized, but not that the one I bought would be. I quickly checked the product description on Etsy and saw that it listed that each jar came with about 1.5 grams of product for a full size for $5. Since I can purchase a 5 gram jar from Fyrinnae stuffed to the top – literally – with shadow, this was a huge disappointment. I contacted the seller and let her know about my feelings on the subject.
Imagine my surprise when I received a message this morning from her telling me that she had increased the size from 1.5 g to 2.5 g for her listings. I went and checked her store, and sure enough, I saw that it had been increased to 2.5 g.
Here are swatches of the 5 shadows I received:
Official Shade Descriptions:
Mitzi – gunmetal grey with multi colored glitter

You can see Mitzi on the lid here with Pixie Epoxy.
I think the shadow that I ordered and the others that I received are nice. While not complex colors, they are pretty. They’ve got good pigment.
What do I think of the Zombie Theme?
Well, Zombies are truly the stuff of my nightmares. My worst nightmares always contain zombies. In the good ones, I’m setting them on fire. In the bad ones, I’m being ripped apart. There’s always elements of loss of self. I think that the Zombie theme for this store is kind of amusing.
Would I purchase from My Pretty Zombie Again?
Maybe. I’m impressed that the seller increased their product size based on my feedback.
