Notoriously Morbid When the Wolfbane Blooms Swatches and Review

I'm excited to finally be bringing you swatches of Notoriously Morbid's Halloween collection, When the Wolfbane Blooms.  I know it's a bit late and the set isn't available anymore, but there may be some people selling them online!  The set includes NM's first ever pressed eyeshadow palette, a pressed highlighter, and two Mystic Matte liquid lipsticks.  I also have swatches of two other eyeshadows not in the collection.  NM's TAT is currently 10-14 business days due to the Black Friday sales.

When the Wolfbane Blooms is inspired by various werewolves in fiction and features four color shifting or duochrome pressed eyeshadows.  The eyeshadows come in the new semi loose formula as well.  I found the pressed and semi loose formulas held up well throughout my 8+ hour workday and did not crease or fade.

Fe Fi Fo Fum

Fe Fi Fo Fum:  matte nude tan lipstick upon application, but dries to a rosy mauve.  It's a good MLBB on me and I hope it comes back in Diablo form!

Serafine:  dusty lavender lipstick with blue shimmers

My Soul's on Fire
My Soul's on Fire:  rose copper with blue shimmers.  I'm absolutely in love with this color!  It's a beautiful color in the rose gold family and it's a great lid shade.  

Sally's Song
Sally's Song:  aquamarine with pink shimmers.  This was the November '16 Color of the Month and features the semi loose formula.  I found it beautiful and extremely pigmented.  I love the gold and pink shift!

  1. Great review!! Would you say Fe fi fo is more brownish or pinkish? NM seems to always have such great Stuff! After ur blackfriday post I grabed one of those sets right away! I remember the only Black Friday set I was able to get the coupon code (for whole year) was the crow set but then the next couple black fridays I was gone literally the second she opens! lol Im so glad she makes extra sets, that definitely helps!!<3

    1. Fe Fi Fo Fum is more brown than pink when you first apply it. However, when it fully dries, I find it to be more dusty mauve. The Black Friday set is AMAZING. I really love the formula and colors! The Black Friday sets sell out faster and faster every year, but I'm glad you got a non couponed set at least :)
