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!

Arcana Witches Draw Down the Moon

Once upon a time, I fell in love with the perfume called Two Finger Ballet by Arcana. I quickly turned to my usual indie haunts like Reddit and, surprisingly, Facebook only to find yet another perfume described as Two Finger Ballet… but with maple creme. I knew I had to get it.

The Description

Infused vanilla oleoresin with sweet maple creme, maple sugar, dry Madagascan vanilla, and moon-white marshmallow.

Witches Draw Down the Moon was part of Arcana’s Halloween 2016 collection. It’s not available for purchase at the moment but I’m hoping it will return at some point in the future.

Notoriously Morbid Vanishing Cabinet: March 2018

Another month, another Vanishing Cabinet box! The March edition was based on the film called Talladega Nights. This is a sport comedy I haven’t seen yet so the references didn’t really come across. However, all the shadows and the lip balm looked interesting enough that I didn’t mind!

Called “Shake & Bake”, this Vanishing Cabinet consisted of shimmery and sparkly eyeshadows and an untinted lip balm. I feel that the colours were cohesive enough to create a look combining all the shadows (but to be honest, I prefer one-and-done shadows and that’s what I tend to wear 80% of the time).

Included in the package was also an Atomic Fire Ball, which tasted of cinnamon. I wasn’t a fan! That aside, let’s move on to the individual shades (and the lip balm).

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.

NAVA: Vanillas Round #1

When it comes to perfume reviews, Crazy Perfume Lady is someone I look up to. Why? Her knowledge is extensive and her vocabulary is simply much wider than mine, but I try and do my best to relay my own thoughts about perfume. Her comment on r/indiemakeupandmore about different NAVA vanillas sparked my interest and I knew that one day I’ll try at least some of those fabled fragrances. So, here’s my first post about Nocturne Alchemy Vanillas.
