Notoriously Morbid Crypt Creation June 2017 Tears of a Unicorn Changeling Swatches and Review

Welcome back, everyone!  I have swatches of Notoriously Morbid's June 2017 Crypt Creation as well as a few extras.  The Crypt Creation was a beautiful Changeling Top Coat, so I'll have it swatched over another Mystic Matte in the pictures.  In the order, I also picked up a Hello Waffle Visage exclusive Mystic Matte lipstick, Compassionate Heart, and received the eyeshadow Misplaced Soul as a free Gift with Purchase.

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

Compassionate Heart
Compassionate Heart on face
Compassionate Heart:  moderately opaque berry with a delicious berry scent.  Since it is moderately opaque, it may need more than one layer for full opacity, though I didn't find it patchy at all.

Tears of a Unicorn over Compassionate Heart

Tears of a Unicorn:  sheer icy blue with pink duochrome and silver sparkles.  I wasn't sure how to feel about a sparkly top coat since I generally prefer subtle shimmer/glow.  However, as soon as I applied it over Compassionate Heart, it gave the lipstick a metallic look.  It's such an interesting top coat and has a gorgeous duochrome.  It's no longer available, but I highly suggest picking it up if you find someone selling it.

Misplaced Soul:  olive with pink duochrome and blue shimmers (GWP)

Notoriously Morbid June 2017 Mystic Monthly - Kikimora Swatches

Ohhh boy, am I late for the swatches this time :(  Life got a bit ahead of me (as did Pokemon Go's legendary raids) and I finally have swatches of Notoriously Morbid's June Mystic Monthly!  Last month's MM was inspired by Kikimora.  It features a Mystic Matte liquid lipstick as well as a Night Kiss Lip Balm in Bedrock Betty. 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.  

Pictures taken under LED bulb 

Bare lips
Kikimora:  moderately opaque dusty purple and blue sheen.  Since it is a moderately opaque lipstick, it may need more than one layer for full opacity.  It's not a color I would normally feel comfortable in, but I did wear it out to work one day and no one said anything to me so I consider that a win!

Bedrock Betty
Bedrock Betty:  delicious orange creamsicle scent.  I absolutely love the scent of this and it's a joy to apply.  Apparently this is a sneak peek of a new collection of Night Kiss balms releasing later.  I'm guessing it's Flintstone related.  I never watched The Flintstones when I was younger, but I did eat the multi-vitamins and have good memories from that haha.  Hopefully all of them will be fruity.

Notoriously Morbid Crossing No Man's Land Swatches

Hello, everyone!  I have a short swatch post of Notoriously Morbid's Crossing No Man's Land collection.  This mini collection includes three eyeshadows and one Changeling Top Coat inspired by Wonder Woman.  It was a surprise that NM dropped on their customers shortly before the Wonder Woman film released.  NM's current TAT is 14 business days and the collection will only be available until the end of July 2017.

Disclosure:  I'm a promoter for Notoriously Morbid and received these products free for review.

Paradise Island
Paradise Island:  cornflower blue with green shimmers

I Will Fight
I Will Fight:  copper with blue sparkles

Sword to Ash
Sword to Ash:  burgundy with green and red shimmers

Fires of Hestia
Fires of Hestia:  opaque metallic gold top coat

Paradise Island, I Will Fight, Sword to Ash, Fires of Hestia

Overall, I think it's a very pretty mini collection.  If there's anything that strikes your fancy, I recommend picking it up quickly since the collection will be discontinued in five days.  Fires of Hestia is actually very pretty and highly recommended if you like lipstick toppers.  It's beautiful and gives a stunning golden glow to any lipstick you apply it over.
