I think I may have started a bad thing here…I recently made my first order from an indie makeup company and now I’m completely in love.
I’ve seen lots of swatches of Notoriously Morbid products in the past, but about a month ago, I was drooling over swatches on the blog The Enchanted Mirror (are those swatches works of art or what?!) and decided that I needed to place an order from the Daoine Sidhe collection. And so I did. And now there are pictures. Lots and lots of pictures. Sweet right?
I clearly opted for lots of samples over full size but…I may go back and order full sizes of some of these. Seriously, they’re so good.
There is a strip of Lorac Behind the Scenes eyeshadow primer running down the right side of my arm, the left portion of all swatches is over bare skin.
Coffin Kisser in Hello Sweetie – In the sad group photo, Hello Sweetie had already been through the washing machine…she held up quite well! Hello Sweetie is supposed to be scented with passion fruit and rose but I think it is more of a light generally sweet smell with a hint of fruit, I don’t smell rose. It tastes vaguely of Flinstones Vitamins but not in a bad way and neither the scent nor the flavor is overwhelming or long lasting. It applied very smoothly and feels very comfortable on the lips. Best of all, it doesn’t dry my lips out! Most lip balms tend to irritate my lips so it’s nice to find one that doesn’t. Plus…River Song. Fo shizzle.
My ordering experience was really pleasant as well which was nice. I think that the website stated that the Turn Around Time was approximately 10-14 days? I received a confirmation that my order was awaiting shipping 7 days after I placed the order, it shipped two days later and I received it in about 4 business days so the TAT was fairly accurate.
Over all, I’m very impressed! The brand has a load of unique eye shadows at very reasonable price points and everything I’ve used so far has performed quite well and exceeded my expectations. I’m also now wondering why I have been buying all of these one dimensional eye shadows recently when I could have been buying sparkly multi-faceted duochrome amazingness! I’m tired. Words are hard.
Now I know you secretly wanted more pictures. I’m on to you.
Have you ordered from Notoriously Morbid? What else should I add to my next order?
I just ate an entire can of black olives. I have no regrets.
I can’t stop listening to Primus. It’s been three weeks of solid Primus obsession and I don’t see it stopping any time soon. Those base lines though!
Have you watched season three of Orange Is The New Black? What did you think? How much are you loving Pensatucky and Boo?!
I just started watching Sense8 and I’m still really undecided on it. Such a good premise but it’s taking a really long time to get going. Netflix series are sometimes a little weird like that.
My refrigerator just stopped making noise and now I may have to eat all of the food I have stock piled.
Never mind it was a false alarm.
Bummer because I’m super hungry.
I just spent a week on vacation with my parents and my sister and The Boy and we floated in the ocean for hours and it was delightful.
I may have also ordered a whole bunch of stuff from Darling Girl Cosmetics on the same day I ordered from NM and so you have that to look forward to!

Gorgeous!! I love how they describe the shades, too, it’s so cute. I’ve never seen OITNB, been meaning to, though. I hope you enjoyed your vacation, the pictures are beautiful!
Thanks! Vacation was amazing! There’s nothing better than getting to spend time with the people that you love 🙂
Aren’t the descriptions great? I love it when companies reference specific things in their product names. It’s weirdly satisfying.
If you ever decide to watch OITNB you have to let me know. I have a love/hate thing going with it.
