Notoriously Morbid Eyeshadows - Victorian Gypsy, Montauk Monster, Fight For Beauty, Timeshift and Use Your Magick Swatches & Review

Let's take a look at another batch of Notoriously Morbid eyeshadows! All but one of the shades I have to show you today are part of the permanent range, I'll note the discontinued shade below for you. Here's the nitty gritty on these:

Notoriously Morbid have plenty of eyeshadow sizing options to suit everyone's preferences and budget. 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 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 it's rare for me to finish an eyeshadow!

Formula overview:
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.

Swatch notes:
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.

Victorian Gypsy (discontinued) is a medium warm pink with red sheen and gold sparkles. I tend to be a bit leery of pink eyeshadows, hence this staying untried for so long but pairing it with copper worked so well that I wonder what I was afraid of! I think this may have been part of the original range but I'm not sure, my jar is a decanted sample baggie from a destash. It's very pretty and I especially like it over the sticky base, which highlights the red sheen and sparkles.

I've used Victorian Gypsy on the inner third of the lid, Together Forever on the outer third of the lid and outer half of the lower lashline, Maple Bacon Bronze on the centre of the lid/inner half of the lower lashline, Gypsy Curse on the crease, He's Going Through Changes as the transition and You Have No Power on the inner corner. The lashes are Cala 1.

Fight For Beauty is described as 'an arctic blue with an intense magenta shift'. Intense is right, how glorious is that pink shimmer?! Fight For Beauty works best with a sticky base, it's a bit lacklustre without it, but oh so worth the extra layer. I wish it was lip safe as I'm dying to play with it for lip art, but at least there are plenty of Changeling Top Coats to sate me instead. Fight For Beauty is from the Daoine Sidhe collection, which has all sorts of magical faerie inspired shades - I've almost completed my collection, so look out for more soon!

Here, I've used Nearly Headless Nick on the lower lashline, Tainted Love on the outer two thirds of the lid, Fight For Beauty on the inner third of the lid, Always Your Girl on the crease, She's Got Gidget Hair for the transition, It's the White Hats on the browbone and mixed with Head Key on the inner corner. The lashes are these ones from Ebay in the style 523.

Montauk Monster is described as 'a pink brown matte base loaded with honey gold sparkles and a copper sheen'. It was released in one of the most recent waves of the ongoing State of Fear collection and honestly, no matter how many sparkly neutrals Carrie releases, I am always grabby hands for more. They're never run of the mill or boring, she excells at complex yet wearable shades, of which Montauk Monster is a perfect example. It applies well, though it's best over a sticky base for maximum sparkle.

Timeshift is described as 'a cream base with golden shift'. It has a matte base which makes it slightly trickier to work with over a sticky base, although it is still very possible, as shown in the look below. This isn't a fault of the eyeshadow, it's an issue for anything with a matte base, just to be clear. The shimmer is really pretty and it blends out easily. I think it's a great browbone shade as it isn't too frosty.

Use Your Magick is described as 'a shamrock green with green and silver shimmer'. Words and pictures cannot convey how wondrously glowy the green shimmer in Use Your Magick is. In person it is absolutely mesmerising. If you even slightly like green eyeshadows, you need to get this now! It has a buildable formula on its own but is perfectly opaque over a sticky base.

For this look, I've used Timeshift on the inner third of the lid (over a sticky base) & on the inner corner (without a base), Use Your Magick on the centre of the lid, The Creatures on the outer third of the lid and lower lashline, Mayor Monster on the crease and She's Got Gidget Hair for the transition. The lashes are Ardell Wispies.
