My other little Christmas gift to myself was from Notoriously Morbid. I had been really really wanting the 13 Black Rainbows Mystic Matte, since I did love the shadow until I completely used it up (which is an achievement on my own, given how wee my eyelids are and how many black eyeshadows with glitter in I own, despite the fact that most black eyeshadows with glitter in are functionally the same.) So when they had their free shipping sale, I made a small order.
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!
So, I’m back from my big American adventure, and I’ve got a few more packages to review from my Black Friday purchases! One of the shops I went for this year is Notoriously Morbid. I didn’t get the discount set this year, partially because I found myself hardly using the code all year, and partially because the set with the code was showing up as sold out for me ten minutes after it went on sale. I went ahead and got a few other little goodies, though.
Good news- I’m moved into the new apartment. My show opened successfully, and I’m not working 52 hours a week any more. So guess who finally has time to make a blog post?
I decided to pick up some of the Notoriously Morbid Mystic Mattes when I saw they were available in the duo format, plus some Changeling Topcoats, since I’m a sucker for mattes only with sparkle on there.
So, I finally decided to put my 40% from Notoriously Morbid to use when I saw they had lipsticks. Actual real lipsticks, guys. This is probably old news to most of you by now, but I was pretty jazzed. I mean, I don’t HATE hate lip glosses, but they don’t stay on long enough through tea and the long bits of hair by my face love to stick to them. I still love the NM Coffin Kissers, so I had to try the lipsticks out.
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.
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.
