Zombie Girls

So I've have the Zombie Girl Collection from the lovely Concrete Minerals cosmetics company since Christmas, and every day I'm loving it more and more!
Obviously, more than being a makeup fanatic, I'm also a HUGE Zombie/Horror movie fanatic. Always have been! So when I saw this collection, I knew I HAD to have it! The tin the shadows come in is gorgeous, I'm still keeping my shadows in it, since I really have nowhere cooler for them to go!

The collection includes six, gorgeous, mineral eyeshadows, with names befitting of any scream queen!

-Graveyard - a gorgeous, medium brown with shimmer
-Living Dead - A lime green with goldish shimmer
-Quarantine - A light, baby pink, although it can be intensified if used wet!
-Nightmare - My personal favorite of the bunch. An intense purple with blue shimmer to it! So gorgeous.
-The Vaccine - A light, steel blue. I would call it a grey with a blue undertone. So unique.
-Blood And Guts - This one wins overall best name! xD This is a brick-red base, with gorgeous teal duo chrome to it. What more could you ask for?!

Using Living Dead, Nightmare, and Quarantine

I was so excited to finally get these! It took some getting used to, I had to keep reminding myself that they are mineral eyeshadows, so they aren't intense right off the bat. It takes some working, using them wet, with a sticky base, some clever tricks to get them to really pop. But when you do want them to pop, oh, they sure do!
A great thing about them is that they can be subtle, or they can be bright and dramatic! Really versatile. Over all I am extremely happy with these. I will be ordering from Concrete Minerals again!!!

I apologize for my recent absence. I'm definitely needing to pay more attention to my blog and my youtube channel! I have tried tons of new product I'm looking to review, and I can't wait to start posting more videos since I got a lovely, new camera for christmas!

Stay tuned! 
I've got things up my sleeve.
