Howdy stranger! It’s been a little while! I’ve been suffering from a combination of lack of time, writers block and general lack of focus. It happens sometimes.
Since it’s been so long since I last wrote a blog post, I’m going to jump right in so we can get on to the good stuff, pictures, as quickly as possible.
Notoriously Morbid offers a monthly subscription (currently wait listed) and this month they offered an option to buy a single month of the subscription! Cool right?
Here are the initial swatches that I did with my finger over bare skin:
The remainder of the swatches were done with a flat foundation brush and are over Urban Decay Primer Potion, bare skin and then Darling Girl Glitter Glue on the far right.
How pretty is that over the glitter glue? I haven’t tried this yet but I’m curious how it will actually perform on the eye. It definitely didn’t swatch well with the finger swatch but that doesn’t really mean much (most loose eyeshadow requires at least primer in order to stick to skin).
High School Hell Cat:
This is such a sparkly shade. The photos don’t really capture the amount of shimmer and glitter present in this shade. I’ve been exploring actually using black eye shadow lately so I’m stoked to try this!
You guys. I love this eyeshadow. It is sooooo gorgeous! This is that perfect inner corner highlight when you want something a little unusual but still work safe. I think it will make a really pretty all over lid shade as well but I haven’t tried it yet.
I have to admit, I’m a little over the whole liquid matte lipstick craze. Maybe it’s just because it’s Summer and I’m ready for gloss, or maybe it’s just a case of over-saturation with a specific product type. That being said, this is a REALLY NICE formula. It is completely matte but it doesn’t completely dry down. That means it is not transfer proof but infinitely more comfortable than a bone dry formula. I did only wear this one day so I can’t give a full review but my first impressions are extremely positive.
This edition of the Vanishing Cabinet was $13.25. It shipped out on Monday and I had it in my mail box on Wednesday.
Overall, I think this is a really fun collection! I probably won’t reach for two of the shades all that often but they’re pretty shades. Cry Baby will be a staple in my collection as will the Mystic Matte Lipstick. I would consider trying other Mystic Mattes in the future based on this sample.

- I got another hair cut! It’s really short. I love the ease of having super short hair but I’m not wild about this particular cut. Mostly I just have a short attention span when it comes to hair.
- I spent today helping a friend cut down five of our trees in our yard. It was fun and exhausting and a little sad. We’ll be planting new trees that won’t destroy our house and our septic system.
