Notoriously Morbid Eyeshadows - Momo Monster, Billiwhack, Dogman, My Log Saw Something That Night and Owl Swatches & Review10:24
Purchased by me/Purchased with blogger discount/Contains affiliate links
I have another set of Notoriously Morbid eyeshadows to show you today! Most of the shades reviewed below are permanent, but one is discontinued, so I'll note the availability with each mini review.
There are plenty of eyeshadow sizing options to suit everyone's preferences and budget. The sample size ($1.25USD) contains approx. 1/4 tsp of product in baggie, the mini-size ($2.75USD) has approx. 1/3 tsp of product in a 3g jar, the full size ($5.50USD) has approx. 1/2 to 3/4 tsp of product in a 5g jar and finally, the deluxe size ($7.50USD) has approx. 1 to 1 1/4 tsp of product in a 10g jar. Personally, I always opt for the mini size, except where full size is the only option, as I find jars easier to use than baggies and it's rare for me to finish an eyeshadow!
I really enjoy Notoriously Morbid's eyeshadow formula. They're easy to work with, blend well, and are often completely unique to what's being put out by mainstream brands. Some shades, especially the more glittery ones perform best over a sticky base but can certainly be used on their own.
All eyeshadow swatches in this post are done two ways: applied on bare skin on the left hand side and over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy, a sticky eyeshadow base which maximises colour intensity and sparkle, on the right. This is so you can see how they perform both ways. I take all of my photos with daylight bulbs for colour accuracy.
I've used Dogman on the lid for this look, Logic Boy on the crease and Momo Monster on the lower lashline. I also used Mannakadar 3-in-1 highlighter in Fantasy on the inner corner and the lashes are Ardell Wispies.
Billiwhack (permanent) is described as 'a pale pink with golden shift.' It's super glowy and pretty, I think it would make an awesome cheek highlight too. The gold shift comes out more as you buff it out and it works perfectly with or without a base. Another one from the State of Fear collection.
I've used Gender on the inner half of the lid, Raisin Girl on the outer hald of the lid, Logic Boy on the crease, Billiwhack on the inner corner and Naughty Nanny over smudged out liner on the lower lashline. The lashes are these ones in the #WSP style.
My Log Saw Something That Night
My Log Saw Something That Night (discontinued) is a warm, gingery brown with a matte base and fine coppery shimmer. The shimmer is subtle enough that it would work wonderfully for the crease and it blends out easily. I'm sad that it was discontinued because it's really such a versatile eyeshadow! My Log Saw Something That Night was part of the Lost in the Lodge collection, inspired by Twin Peaks.
I've used My Log Saw Something That Night on the outer two thirds of the lid and lower lashline, Doll's Eye on the crease and He's Going Through Changes on the transition. Extra Fancy was used on the inner third of the lid, Osteomancy highlighter on the inner corner and I foiled Scotland the Brave for eyeliner. The lashes are these ones from Born Pretty Store.
Owl (permanent) is described as a 'metallic white gold'. It's a pale yellow gold with sparkles although it does indeed seem to reflect a white glow when blended out on the inner corner. This is another one that doesn't need an adhesive base to look gorgeous.
