1UP JOURNEY vs Super Geek SHOWTIME vs Loot Anime SURVIVE! September 2017

Woohoo, I'm finally caught up on subscription boxes!  Once again, Super Geek box came out really strong and I loved almost all the items and 1UP disappointed me.  I've unsubscribed to 1UP box for now because I didn't like the theme for October and depending on the theme for November, I may re-sub.

1UP FIGHT vs Super Geek DRAGON vs Loot Crate KINGDOM vs Loot Anime WORK FOR IT! August 2017

Here I am, desperately trying to catch up on blog posts.  I really loved everything I received in my Super Geek Box for August, but didn't actually like anything in the 1UP Box.  August's box as well as September's were what made me unsubscribe to 1UP until I find a theme I like.  Unfortunately, they don't let you skip months, so you'd have to unsubscribe and resubscribe as needed.  I also picked up Loot Crate for August because the theme was up my alley.

Notoriously Morbid Halloween 2017 Advent Calendar - The Ghouls Are All Here Swatches

Welcome back, everyone!  Sorry I haven't been posting too often, I've been extremely busy at work and also came down with a minor cold.  I'm getting a bit better now and can finally start catching up with blog posts.  I'm extremely excited to share swatches of Notoriously Morbid's first ever advent calendar!  This advent calendar was inspired by the "monsters" from Scooby Doo and features thirteen exclusive products.  The calendar was released in two sizes, the full size being $75 (retail $105) and the mini size was $50 (retail $65).  The box was available for preorder in September with promoters and affiliates being able to preorder a few days earlier for testing purposes.

The calendar is designed for the first product to be opened on October 19th.  Of course, I've opened and swatched everything because I can't control myself, so spoilers ahead!  I have all the products in their "dated" order, instead of my usual light to dark scheme.  Every product was individually sealed and wrapped with their opening date.  The box that it came in was also amazing as it featured NM's version of the Mystery Machine.  I'm definitely keeping the box for future use.  There was a fruit snack pack included in the box as well and I loved those!

Notoriously Morbid August 2017 Mystic Monthly - Agnes Swatches and Review

Hello, everyone!  I have swatches of Notoriously Morbid's August Mystic Monthly!  It was inspired by Agnes and featured a Mystic Matte liquid lipstick as well as a Sinister Sprite Lip Shimmer. Notoriously Morbid's current TAT is 14 business days, but the Mystic Monthly bills on the 20th of each month and ships two business days later.

Bare lips
Agnes on face
Agnes:  metallic red brown with red and gold shimmers.  This is a really pretty lipstick and got me feeling a bit more comfortable about dark brown lipsticks.

Storm Raising
Storm Raising on face
Storm Raising:  sheer medium pink with pink shimmers; deliciously berry scented.  I was actually really surprised by how much I liked Storm Raising.  It seems sheer when swatched on the hand, but it gave me such a beautiful wash of color on the lips.  I felt like a million bucks while wearing this balm and I definitely want to wear this look again!

Agnes, Storm Raising
