Notoriously Morbid February 2016 Vanishing Cabinet Swatches & Review

Onto the next Vanishing Cabinet! I've been working hard to get through untrieds lately, I've got one eyeshadow to go from March 2016's VC and then I've completed several months in a row after that, so I'm feeling good about that! Today though, let's look at the February 2016 selection, which included my first Notoriously Morbid highlighter and a cute mini Diablo Lip Rouge. The theme for this month was Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula, a film I studied in high school but seem to have only vague memories of! Have you seen it?

These were all limited edition but Carrie from Notoriously Morbid has recently started bringing back previous Vanishing Cabinet shades for a month at a time, so you never know what might be resurrected. As always, I suggest checking out the Notoriously Morbid Buy/Sell/Trade group or looking out for blog sales if these are on your wishlist.

About the subscription:
The Vanishing Cabinet is a monthly subscription service from US based indie brand Notoriously Morbid. The amount of products included seems to vary, but there's typically three to five products in each. It's $13.25USD within the US and $20USD for international (including shipping), so a very reasonable monthly treat! You can sign up for the wait list here or purchase a one month trial (while available) here. Overstock is occasionally posted here.

Swatch notes:
Eyeshadow swatches are applied to bare skin (on the left) and over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy (on the right) using a patting motion and photographed under daylight bulbs. The highlighter is swatched heavily on the left and sheered out on the right.

See Me Now is a dusty blue-grey with strong violet shimmer. I found the formulation on both this and Love What You Love (below) to be excellent; with or without a sticky base, the colour payoff is great, although the shimmer is obviously more pronounced with one. They're a breeze to apply and blend.

For this look, I've used See Me Now on the inner half of the lid, Wake Up on the outer half of the lid, Love What You Love on the lower lashline, My Beloved highlighter on the inner corner, He's Going Through Changes for the transition, Sometimes Dead Is Better and Each Buries His Own on the crease and It's the White Hats on the browbone. The lashes are these Ebay faux mink lashes in style 12.

My Beloved is a sheer shell pink with silver shimmer. This was my first experience with Notoriously Morbid's highlighters and it has been in heavy rotation since this VC arrived! I absolutely adore it and dearly wish it was part of the permanent range. The texture is finely milled and highly blendable, with a gorgeous glow factor that doesn't emphasise pores or other texture. It lasts around ten hours on me.

Kiss Me is a burgundy red with a semi-matte finish. It's part of the Diablo Lip Rouge range and was slated to return as a permanent colour in the new packaging, according to the info sheet with this VC, but that hasn't eventuated yet. Hopefully someday! I've tried a few Diablos and they're lovely, quite pigmented and comfortable on the lips. Kiss Me had a bit more slip than the others I've tried, which is neither better nor worse, just a minor point of difference. It wore for six hours on me.
