Notoriously Morbid January 2018 Mystic Monthly - Laidly Swatches


Hi everyone, I'm extremely excited to share a short swatch post of Notoriously Morbid's first Mystic Monthly of 2018!  Dragon's Tail is the theme for this year's Mystic Monthly and is a collaboration between Notoriously Morbid and myself!  I've always been fascinated by mythology and dragons and each month's matte lipstick will be inspired by a dragon from around the world.  The first month was inspired by the Laidly Worm and featured a Mystic Matte liquid lipstick as well as a Night Kiss Lip Balm.  Notoriously Morbid's current TAT is 5 - 7 business days, but the Mystic Monthly ships on a different schedule.

Overall, this is a great glimpse to a years worth of interesting lipstick colors.  I hope you all like the shades we came up with!

Notoriously Morbid January 2018 Vanishing Cabinet - The Midnight Society Vol 1 Swatches


Welcome back, everyone!  I have a short swatch post of Notoriously Morbid's first Vanishing Cabinet of 2018.  It was inspired by Nickelodeon's Are You Afraid of the Dark?  The VC included four mini eyeshadows and NM's first finishing powder.  NM's current TAT is 5 - 7 business days, but the VC ships on a different schedule.

The End
The End:  translucent finishing powder.  This was NM's first foray into finishing powder and they've done an amazing job.  I've used it for awhile and it's extremely long lasting and mattifying without looking powdery.  I found that it lasted more than 12 hours on the skin.

Overall, I was really excited about this VC mainly because of the finishing powder.  I never had cable growing up so I wasn't able to watch the Are You Afraid of the Dark? series, though I should start catching up now.  The eyeshadow colors made for a nice warm neutral eye look and I highly recommend picking up the finishing powder now that it's available for purchase on the website.

Notoriously Morbid Retro Expansion Swatches


Today, I have swatches of Notoriously Morbid's expansion on their retro eyeshadows!  They're been re-releasing some older, discontinued shadows in a semi loose formula.  I've been pretty excited about the retro shadows because they were some of my favorite and the semi loose formula makes them easier to use!  NM's current TAT is 5 -7 business days and 12 - 14 business days for orders including pre order products.
