Alter Ego - Mystery Shopper

Press Sample/Review

Hi everyone! Today I have an exclusive from Alter Ego for the Indie Brand Collective

I wasn't familiar with this sale concept so I will do my best to explain all the useful info for you! 

Alter Ego participates in this collective which sees makers get together to offer one identical sales code to be used across their stores. The idea is that one sales code is easy to remember and buyers can shop around from the participating shops with just that one code. Although this event has taken place before, this is the first time the organisers have made exclusive products for it.

The Alter Ego exclusive is Mystery Shopper. Cynthia describes it as 'a green micro glitter (green like money) with purple shard glitter (representing the various industries judged by the mystery shopper)'.

I used one coat of Mystery Shopper over a black creme and finished with topcoat. The formula was great and there is plenty of glitter in just one coat. I like the green and purple combination and I don't have many polishes with shard glitter but it's kind of cool! I forget how fun a glitter polish can be and how they were so popular just a few years back. This is a nice reminder and I think it would be nice paired with other base colours too.

Sorry I wasn't able to get any sunlight shots of this one for you, Winter is fast approaching here which means it's dark most of the time and the weather is not co-operating. I'm hoping to rework my indoor setup to get some better artificially lighted photos for you soon. 

Mystery Shopper will be available along with more exclusives from the other indie brands participating in the sale from November 24th to November 27th (Black Friday to Cyber Monday). The discount code IBCFRIDAY will get you 20% off. 

Alter Ego's regular prices are $4.50 for minis and $9 for full size.
