Good evening zombies!
I hope you are all well. School starts soon for my littles and I'm excited for both them and for me! ;)
A few years ago, I did a review on an up and coming indie cosmetic company Notoriously Morbid Cosmetics. Their business has grown exponentially since then, and I decided I'd like to order a few goodies to see how things are going with them these days.
(descriptions from the NM website)
I ordered mini sized eyeshadows in:
**The jars came sealed but had no sifters.
Philosophoscope: A plum toned burgundy with intense red/gold shift.
Chaos Reigns:An eggplant purple with INSANE gold and green sparkle atop a slight red sheen.
Love Reigns: A salmon pink with cool blue sheen.
Pure Passion: A ruddy brown with gold, blue and green shimmer.
Speak to the Devil: A brown based golden olive with a green highlight.
Grindhouse: not listed on website (to my eye it's a dark peach color with tons of sparkle and gold flash)
Reali-Key: not listed on website (to my eye, it's a light sea foam green with a gold sheen)
The Grand Empress: More than just a purple, The Grand Empress is a dark blue with a mad dash of red on top. Making it a velvety purple to deep red duo-chrome.
I received a sample in She's Full of Secrets: A sweet classic pink, but not for long. The cool blue shift overpowers the pink the more you build.
SUCH SPARKLE! MUCH WOW!
Swatches! I used Tick:Tock Cosmetics "Milky Way" base under my swatches.
And what's even cooler about Notoriously Morbid, is that the eyeshadow are all very reasonable priced. Here is a break down of cost and quantity:
Sample size-approx. 1/4 tsp of product in baggie- $1.25
Mini-size-approx. 1/3 tsp of product in a 3g jar- $2.75
Full size-approx. 1/2 to 3/4 tsp of product in a 5g jar- $5.50
Deluxe size-approx. 1 to 1 1/4 tsp of product in a 10g jar- $7.50
In my opinion, the sample sizes are pretty generous and you can easily get quite a few looks from them. I'll probably never go through ALL of my mini sized jars that I ordered from them, as they are also nicely filled with product.
NMC doesn't just have eyeshadow. They also carry a wide variety of face products such as bronzers, blush and highlighters and lip products such as top coats, lip gloss, lipstick, and matte liquid lipstick. My next order will consist of lip products as I've heard wonderful things about them. AND, their products are all themed, so it's fun to look through the names and find things that are familiar to you and your geeky/gothy/girly side. There is something for everyone!
