Notoriously Morbid September 2017 Mystic Monthly - Endor Swatches and Review

Welcome back, everyone!  I'm so excited to show off swatches of Notoriously Morbid's September Mystic Monthly!  It was inspired by Endor and featured a Mystic Matte liquid lipstick as well as a Night Kiss Lip Balm. 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
Endor on face
Endor:  beautiful rosewood with copper shimmers.  I fell head over heels in love with this color!  I think it may be my favorite Mystic Matte lipstick yet (even beating out Bishop!)  It's the perfect My Lips But Better (MLBB) shade and the perfect rosewood that I've been wanting.  I really hope this color is voted back into permanence because I can't imagine running out of it.  

Speak to Spirits
Speak to Spirits:  deliciously Nutter Butter scented

Notoriously Morbid August 2017 Crypt Creation - Creature of the Night Mystic Matte Swatch

Hello, everyone!  I have a short catch-up swatch post of Notoriously Morbid's August 2017 Crypt Creation, created by NM Maven Amber!  It's no longer available, but you may be able to find some people selling it on destash pages.  NM's current TAT is 14 business days.

Creature of the Night on face
Creature of the Night:  beautiful plum base with strong green duochrome.  This is an absolutely stunning MM and so unique.  The color scheme reminded me of Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty.

Notoriously Morbid September 2017 Vanishing Cabinet - Murdering Maven Swatches

Welcome back, everyone!  I have swatches of Notoriously Morbid's September Vanishing Cabinet. It was inspired by the board game and movie, Clue.  It was a special because NM made the VC into a bit of a murder mystery.  Some promoters (Mavens) were made into "game pieces" and one game piece was included in each VC and the customers could try to see which Maven committed the crime (spoiler: it was me).  I had the honor of becoming Mr. Green and loved creating a green themed look.  The VC included five mini eyeshadows and one mini blush.  NM's current TAT is 14 business days, but the VC ships on a different schedule.

I got Andrea as Miss Scarlet as my game piece!

For those of you who didn't get my game piece, here are the pictures I submitted for Mr. Green :D

Overall, this VC had some very fun colors and I look forward to playing with them!  I hope you guys had fun playing Murdering Maven with all of us and can't wait for the next whodunit!
