I always see amazing posts of indie makeup hauls. And I get jealous.
So, I did it for myself! Notoriously Morbid was having a huge post-holiday sale, so I decided to jump on the NM bandwagon! I’m sure if you googled it, you’d find a million other blog posts about NM and her FABULOUS eyeshadows.
Seriously. These eyeshadows are fabulous.
So, when I decided to do a big purchase (I was feeling pretty down from other things, and I needed a pick me up), I looked at a million websites to figure out what colors I wanted. And the mini’s samples are about 1g of eyeshadow in a 5g pot, and that’s a lot for $2.75 each! At least I think so. So I figure I’ll get a few shades to test out the brand, but then I keep finding more and more and more that I want. Seriously, these colors are amazing. So, I went a bit crazy. I ended up buying 8 mini’s and was sent 2 sample pouches as a bonus!
Pornographic Priestess (what an insanely fun name)
Cry Wolf Cry
Lizard on a Window Pane
Shadow of Things (sample)
So, I am not exaggerating when I say that each jar I opened, and each swatch I did, I got more excited. These are gorgeous. Every. Single. One.
Millions of pictures. Ready, set, GO!
My first haul!
Such cute design.
Victorian Gypsy: Look how much you get in the mini’s jar! So much!!
Victorian Gypsy: It’s a soft pink with a multi-color glitter in it. It’s a bit of a baby pink, so I’ll have to play around with how I fit it into looks. But, it’s beautiful!
P. Priestess: This is a dusty rose color with multi-colored glitter. Very pretty. I can see myself wearing this a lot.
Tempest: This color very peachy, and just what I expected. Its got this beautiful gold and multi-color glitter effect to it that is just lovely.

Cry Wolf Cry
Cry Wolf Cry: In the jar, this color looks like a dusty purple/brown mix, almost a bit mauve-y.
Cry Wolf Cry: But when you swatch it, it comes to life for real. It’s a darkish taupe, but with this beautiful purple-y/silver-y shimmer to it. I will be running out of this color quickly.
Lizard on a Window Pane
Lizard: This color is also beautiful. In the jar, this looks like a really light taupe color, but when I put it on my skin, it lightens up quite a bit. It’s a light brown (almost while) color with a green shimmer, which I love!

Belle’s Bounty: WOW.
Belle’s Bounty: This is such a beautiful gold color! It’s the same color as Belle’s dress from Beauty & the Beast, and it is stunning.
Belle’s Bounty: Wow, just wow. I am enamored!
Cry Innocent: I couldn’t photograph this swatch very well at all. It’s a dark dusty red-purple with bright blue shimmers. Lovely!
Morgana: I can see why the internet obsesses over this color. It’s a dark royal-y blue that is purple depending on the light.
Once there is the smallest speck of this anywhere, it’s all over! You should see my arm when I tried to clean up! It looked like a giant bruise! Use cautiously.
Shadow of Things
Shadow of Things: Very dark black/teal color with some blue and green shimmers. Beautiful.
Neno: This was a free sample, and it turns out it was my favorite. Seriously, I wish I had bought the FULL SIZE JAR. It’s gorgeous. It’s a medium brown color with SO MUCH SHIMMER. AHHH!
Neno: Look at all these shimmers! Love it!! Look at how many colors there are. I am obsessed.
So, in review:
If you are thinking of purchasing from Notorious Morbid, do yourself a favor and do it. The shipping isn’t instantaneous, but it’s worth waiting a few extra days for these. Also, I’ll be buying the full 5g jar once my sample runs out, which I imagine won’t take very long.
