Notoriously Morbid: Vanishing Cabinet May 2018

Entitled The Town That Dreaded Sundown, the Notoriously Morbid Vanishing Cabinet May 2018 was inspired by the TV show Riverdale. It featured two eyeshadows, glitter, a tinted lip balm, and a lip scrub. I liked the variety of products and felt like all the colours complemented each other well. Now, let’s get to the nitty-gritty!

Both eyeshadow swatches were done over Femme Fatale Shadow Magic primer and, on the right, also over Notoriously Morbid Shadow Bind glitter glue. All of V was applied over Shadow Magic and Shadow Bind. The lip balm was applied over clean, unprimed skin.

Notoriously Morbid: Vanishing Cabinet April 2018

April’s Vanishing Cabinet was inspired by the film called Legend. This subscription box included four eyeshadows and a tinted Sinister Sprite lip balm.

On an unrelated note – this is my first post written using the new WordPress editor. It’s quite a bit different from the old one, so I’m still learning its tricks!

Notoriously Morbid Vanishing Cabinet: February 2018

I did say that beauty boxes weren’t my thing but if there’s one I’d like to try, it’s an indie beauty box (read why, here). Notoriously Morbid provide two beauty boxes – one of them (the Mystic Monthly) is all about matte liquid lipstick and lip-related products, while the other one (the Vanishing Cabinet) is about various mini-sized beauty items. In January, you could subscribe to the VC without joining the waitlist first, so I pulled the trigger.

At the end of February, my very first Vanishing Cabinet was waiting for me in the post box! This month’s edition was inspired by the TV show 30 Rock, a cult classic (that I haven’t watched yet, oops!). I received four items and the liquid lipstick was this month’s full-sized product.

First Impressions: Lotique, Sephora and Benefit

Hello, everyone! Today I would like to share with you my first first-impression post! I’ve recently received some of these products for free at the BBMU conference, and others were bought at Sephora. I’ve only tried them a couple of times so these reviews are by no means exhaustive but I hope they give you a general idea of how these products behave. For reference; I have combination skin (normal cheeks and oily T-zone), my skin tone falls into the NW15 range (I think), my lips tend to be dry while my eyelids tend to be oily. My eyelashes are proper divas that refuse to stay curled, they’re long and relatively thick.

Crow & Pebble: Eyeshadow Swatches, Review & Looks

Of all the indie brands currently on the scene, Crow & Pebble is probably the youngest one, being launched in May 2017. Hailing from Scotland, Crow & Pebble’s eyeshadow products are inspired by literature and contain vegan and cruelty-free ingredients (non-vegan ingredients are labelled as such). Moreover, the micas come from places where child labour is not exploited.

crow and pebble eyeshadow

I chose a variety of colours in order to test the waters: a warm brown/aqua duochrome (Petrochemical Sheen), a pinky red (Atreides), a neutral beige (Harkonnen) and a Mystery Case with an assortment of five different samples. All the eyeshadows I ordered were in sample size with the exception of Petrochemical Sheen. I knew I would love it so I ordered a half-jar of it straight away.

Mystery Case (5 samples): £4 [here]

Petrochemical Sheen (half-jar): £3 [here]

Harkonnen: £1 [here]

Atreides: £1 [here]

Standard shipping: £3

DISCOUNT ALERT! Get 20% off your entire order with the code PHOTOFUN. Valid until 29 September 2017. Disclaimer: I’m not affiliated with the brand in any way.

I’ve placed my order on 18 July and the package was shipped on 31 July. It might seem a lot but you have to keep in mind Crow & Pebble is a small business where everything is made by hand. I was satisfied with the package; everything was securely wrapped to minimise any potential damages.

The Eyeshadow Swatches

These Crow & Pebble swatches were done over an Etude House primer with Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy applied on the left half of the forearm. The eyeshadows were applied with a flat shader brush and the photos were taken indoors in indirect sunlight.

Favourite Makeup Discoveries of 2016

This post is way overdue. I’ve been having it on my mind for the longest time but sadly couldn’t post it any time sooner. In early 2016, I started using more makeup and relatives quickly found some of my favourite makeup items that I love using this year, too. Some are part of the daily rotation while others are meant for special occasions only. Any way you look at them – they’re my favourites!

Hello Waffle Lavender Cream Liquid Highlighter

This is such a versatile highlighter that I can’t help but love it. It can be very, very subtle but it can also be packed on for a very noticeable, shimmery effect. It’s cool-toned so folks with warm undertones might not appreciate it that much. However, it should work fine if used sparingly. Check my review and swatches here.

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

This foundation stole my heart back in February 2016 but I only started using it in November. It truly is a weightless foundation because it feels like second skin and you don’t need to apply a lot of it to achieve medium-to-full coverage. I apply three drops, tops. While it’s called luminous, I find it to be more matte but then it’s not chalky or heavy, especially if you apply it to well-moisturised skin.
