So here’s a funny story. The Fox and Mink have always been a devious duo well skilled in the art of procrastination. I’m more or less resigned to that fact, but the Fox decided to acquire a self-help e-book on Battling the Evils of Procrastination (my own take on the title, I can’t remember what the original was). I remember being highly amused when he brandished a thumb drive which contained the e-book with a look that was part smugness, part self righteousness on his little foxy face. Needless to say, it’s been about half a year since, and he still hasn’t even plugged the thumb drive into his laptop.
What’s the point of this cockamamie tale? Heh, it’s my convoluted way of saying that true to my big, stinky procrastinating ways, I have an entire backlog of reviews to catch up on. I’ve taken pictures, jotted down my thoughts here, there and everywhere, but really, it’s just putting everything together that gets my fur ruffled up. Still, here’s my little attempt at penance. SWATCHES.
I picked up a bunch of eye shadow samples from Notoriously Morbid some time ago and was astounded by how pretty some of the shades were. I went with neutral and somewhat more striking shades this round and somehow managed to end up loving everything. I’ve always meant to try the company out but got deterred by the relatively long turnaround times. Still, I got tempted by a Free Day Friday deal which included free international shipping and it was decided. I was going to have my Notoriously Morbid fix after all!
Here are the shades that I got to try:
- Young Merlin
- Look Upon Me
- Black Cat Crossing
- Shadow of Things
- 7 Years Shattered
- Melancholy One
- Ladder to Hell
- Tea Tosh (gift from /u/eraserdust!)
- Sometimes My Arms Bend (Free Sample!)
- Boca del Infierno (Free Sample!)
This is a dedicated eye shadow review post. I did get the Coffin Kissers as well, but I have another Notoriously Morbid order coming in soon so I’ll consolidate my review of those with my other goodies.
