A short Notoriously Morbid post, along with some housekeeping notes!

I’ll put the boring stuff at the beginning before the cut, so it’s harder to miss.

First off, I’ve moved! I was kind of busy with getting everything I own packed up and sent off, and when I wasn’t doing that, I was generally seeing people in town before I left, but I’m done moving now. This is the last post that was photographed in the old apartment. So, what does this mean for you? Well, first off, I’m in a lot hotter of a climate now. Since I got here, it’s been steadily above 30 degrees, which I am whiny about. I’ll try to keep that in the back of my mind when reviewing products, because the temperature can affect a lot of products. (For example, my Fyrinnae Lip Lustres were pretty hard to the point of being unusable. Now, they’re almost liquid.)

So, now that I moved, I’ll be up to getting more packages again and be better at doing more than one review a month, right? Ehhhhh, about that. There are rumours- still nothing’s locked down as far as I can tell, but I’m planning for it- about a Canada Post strike. This means no indie orders, as well as a few other issues for me, like all of my shoes that are not my big black boots being stuck in the mail. (Did I mention it’s over 30 degrees?) I’ve got a few parcels that were sent to the new apartment, so after that, we’ll see. And while all my makeup isn’t here, I’ve been thinking of doing some comparison swatch posts of my eyeshadows, so I’ll see about that.

Now, for the fun part!

My Pretty Zombie Blushes And Junk

Okay, so disclaimer, I actually don’t know how to use blush. Like, at all. I’m awful. I go like “haha I don’t use blush because I’m too goth!” but really I just mess it up every time. It’s partially because I’m kinda pasty, partially because of no practice, and partially because until relatively recently I was using a repurposed eyeshadow brush to apply it. But I was like “ehhh time to learn I guess if I’m gonna be a legit makeup blogger” so here I am with a bunch of MPZ samples to figure out what I like.

Shiro- Five Years Stuck On My Lips

For Shiro’s anniversary sale, I ended up making a little order to to try out the gloss in moderate, among a few other things. I had noticed that swatches of moderate glosses seemed to be pretty opaque, so I figured, might as well give it a go.

Dark Heart Designs

Alright, so I made an order from Dark Heart Designs on the 7th of January, and I got it a few weeks ago. The owner has been going through some personal issues, and when I made the order, there were still people waiting from November for shipping notifications or updates. (I found out about this after making the order.) I don’t know if I’m particularly lucky with this sort of thing or if I have a blog with my uncommon first name in the title or something, but I found service relatively prompt. Do keep in mind that this isn’t a universal thing, though- and if you’ve ordered recently, let me know how your experience went so I can see if I just ordered at the right time or something.

More Darling Girl shinies!

This is actually two Darling Girl orders that I made, one of which was for a sale or something and the other because I really really wanted some red gel eyeliner. I should note that the customer service was pretty good- they ended up being sent together, and Susan noticed that I had a few duplicate items. She e-mailed me to ask if I wanted to make any substitutions, which I did because I am pretty scatterbrained.

Notoriously Morbid’s Grisly Grimoire

I managed to get this year’s Notoriously Morbid Halloween collection, if only because it was a preorder thing and not a “you have to be home and not working or otherwise busy and also you have to have money at some point between 2 AM and 3 AM when they sell out” thing. Plus this one is proper witchy, which is kind of my thing, so I was so in.

A Whole Whackload Of Notoriously Morbid

Hello, internet makeup friends! First, my apologies for not posting as much of late. I was ridiculously busy, and then when my schedule cleared up, I found myself where I currently am- housesitting, where the only computer I have access to runs Windows XP. As a result, I don’t exactly have access to my regular photo editor program or usual fonts. So, you know, if you read my blog for the font choice, sorry. But let me know if there’s anything weird about this post in the formatting, and I’ll try to fix it.
