Look at all those goodies! I'm so excited to bring to you this review which features not one, not two, but three separate collections! Because of this, the review will be super picture heavy. I had actually made two separate orders, but Carrie decided to ship them together for me, which was an amazing surprise :)
Early on in the month, Notoriously Morbid introduced a new feature called, "The Vanishing Cabinet". It is their take on a monthly subscription. Each month, there's a new limited edition collection released and you can choose whether or not to buy it - they sell out quickly! This is a great option for people who don't like the actual commitment of subscriptions and want to be able to skip collections that they don't like.
For their first Vanishing Cabinet, the collection "Calling Corners" is based off of the movie "The Craft". I had seen this movie a few years ago and I wasn't a die-hard fan. However, there's no denying the influence it had on later supernatural series such as "Charmed" (which I am a fan of). I placed an order as soon as it was released; it was also eligible for Free Day Friday, which included free samples of the whole Sealed Judgement Set that was released during Black Friday last year. I had regretfully missed out on the set when it released so it was wonderful that Carrie decided to bring it back for a bit :)
Lastly, a permanent collection was released on Friday the 13th. It's called "Superstitio" and the eyeshadows were influenced by various superstitions! I really loved everything and can't wait to show you the swatches!

Looking at the overall swatches now, I would say Superstitio actually makes a pretty nice summer collection. The lighter shades are pretty cheerful while you still have the darker shades for your crease. I really like Superstitio and I'm so glad it's permanent. However, I did notice some of the labels weren't positioned correctly so the names ended up being cut off. You can probably notice that in Black Cat Crossing. Other than that, I'm so happy with both my orders and can't wait for more Vanishing Cabinet collections. Coming out with new collections every month must be tiring, but it makes me so excited and happy to see them :D I mean, I'm so obsessed with NM that it gets harder to wait so long for collections to come out.
Also, regarding swatches, I did both individual arm swatches and collection swatches this time. Let me know if you want them both or prefer no individual arm swatches. I used to do the individuals, but found that it took up too much space in the blog post. If you find it redundant then let me know. However, if the additional swatches are helpful to you, I would gladly keep doing it!
