Notoriously Morbid is an indie makeup company out of West Virginia. Their products all have a macabre theme to them, and many are inspired by books or tv shows like Supernatural, or mythical creatures like the Loch Ness Monster. They have eye, lip, and face products available, and even a monthly box subscription service.
I sampled four eyeshadows: Bigfoot, Coven Muffin, Maple Bacon Bronze, and Sister Solstice. Their sample bags came with a generous amount of product inside, which made me happy. Bigfoot is a grey shimmer shadow. Coven Muffin, perhaps the most unique shade, is a duo chrome that is a combination of purple and pink, with a bit of gold shimmer. Maple Bacon Bronze is an average bronze shadow. Sister Solstice is a light purple shadow with a pearlescent effect to it. The shadows wore pretty well without a primer, so that’s good news. Sizes range from sample bag size ($1.25), to deluxe ($7.50).
I also bought a matte lipstick duo, which included two shades – Sorceress and Sacrifice. Sacrifice is a deep red, similar to the popular shade Unicorn Blood by Jeffree Star Cosmetics. Sorceress, however, is a pink shade with an aqua-gold shimmer that makes the color look purple. They wear well enough, but don’t last through a meal like Pad Thai. The matte lipstick duo was $8.00.
Notoriously Morbid also makes lip balms! Like I didn’t have enough lip balms already, I decided to add to the problem by trying their Birthday Cake balm and Bloody Velvet Cake balm. Both are comprised primarily of coconut, apricot, and jojoba oils. The moisture lasts a long time, and yes, the Bloody Velvet Cake really does smell like red velvet cake. The balms run about $3.00.
