Notoriously Morbid April 2017 Resurrection Shadow, Gift with Purchase, and Crypt Creation Swatches

Happy May, everyone!  I have a short swatch post of some April exclusives from Notoriously Morbid.  Their current TAT is 14 business days, though it may be slightly extended due to the owner having attended a convention the past weekend.  Anyway, NM has been bringing back some popular eyeshadows that were either limited edition or discontinued.  Last month, Misery Loves Company from the Daria inspired Vanishing Cabinet was resurrected.  I was pretty happy about that because I like the color, but the original jar was a bit leaky, so I never liked opening it.  Now that I purchased the resurrection shade, I'll be pouring the old shadow into this new jar.

NM also decided to revamp the Customer Created Color of the Months into Crypt Creations.  Instead of customers submitting ideas on the NM website and being chosen randomly, customers in the Crypt page can now submit their ideas for a vote.  The first Crypt Creation winner was a Mystic Matte called Under the Moonspell.  There was also a Gift with Purchase eyeshadow within that time frame, so I included the GWP in this swatch post as well.

Disclosure: I am a promoter for Notoriously Morbid and purchased these products using a promoter discount.

Siren Song
Siren Song:  semi loose periwinkle with green shimmers.  This was the Gift with Purchase of my order and is a delightfully mermaid-y shadow.

Misery Loves Company
Misery Loves Company:  charcoal with tons of red shimmers.  This was April's resurrection shade and is very deceiving!  It looks light in the jar, but swatches and applies much darker.

Under the Moonspell:  gorgeous dusty purple with tons of red shimmers.  This lipstick is really unique and gorgeous, but I found that it can turn slightly powdery when the lips are pressed together a lot.  You can see cracks start to form in the lip swatch.  The cracks are not noticeable from a distance though, so I don't mind as much.  I also found it interesting how similar the lipstick was to Misery Loves Company, as if they were made for each other!
