Notoriously Morbid Easter 2017 Retro Shadows Swatches

Hey everyone, I have swatches of a small haul I made during Notoriously Morbid's Easter sale.  It was an exciting release as NM was rereleasing many discontinued shades in semi loose form.  Those "retro" shades were what made me fall in love with the brand many years ago and I couldn't pass up a chance to play with them in the new formula!  I was also really happy because most of the retro shades I did own were destroyed when I pressed them a long time ago using glycerin.  As many of you know, pressing with glycerin is a huge no-no as the shadows tend to grow mold (which was exactly what happened to mine).  

NM's current TAT is 14 business days.

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

Bubble Popper
Bubble Popper:  semi loose pale pink lavender with blue sparkles.  This was one of NM's oldest shades and one of the few I never had a chance to purchase!

Evil Eye
Evil Eye:  semi loose warm pink with golden green shimmers

Neno:  semi loose metallic taupe

Nighttime in Emerald City
Nighttime in Emerald City:  semi loose dark taupe with green and red shimmers

Kilgarrah:  semi loose dark brown with green duochrome and red and gold shimmers.  This shadow was one of my three original favorites!

Gretel's Ghost
Gretel's Ghost:  semi loose red bronze with gold shimmers

Boe:  semi loose red brown with gold sparkles

All Hallow's Eve
All Hallow's Eve:  semi loose coppery purple to swamp green duochrome with gold and red shimmers.  Now this one.  This one is the shadow that started my NM obsession.  I received it as a free sample in my first order and was completely floored.  I actually have a few backups of this, but couldn't resist getting it as a semi loose shadow as well.

Young Merlin
Young Merlin:  semi loose dark purple with gold sparkles.  This is the last of the three original favorite shadows.  

Vashta Nerada
Vashta Nerada:  semi loose blackened purple with gold and pink sparkles

Zinthos:  semi loose gray purple with slight blue sheen

Don't Touch my Jelly Beans
Don't Touch my Jelly Beans:  lavender with green, red, and gold shimmers.  This was the Gift With Purchase during the Easter sale.

Boe, All Hallow's Eve, Young Merlin, Vashta Nerada, Zinthos, Don't Touch my Jelly Beans

Lil' Bunny Foo Foo Poo
Lil' Bunny Foo Foo Poo:  clear lip balm scented with Sweettart with a splash of lemon.  This was the other GWP during the Easter sale.

Overall, I was really happy with all the retro shades that were rereleased.  They've been reigniting my old love for them and I love how pigmented they are from being semi loose!  I hope NM releases more retro shades in the future as quite a few of my favorites were discontinued throughout the years.
