Awesome Indies: Notoriously Morbid Cosmetics

Back again with another round of amazing Indie Shadows from the etsy shop Notoriously Morbid. Initially I was drawn to this shop for the overall theme of it. I love the name, graphics, and names of the shadows all having a spooky vibe. With a huge variety of shadows to choose from it was hard to choose! Shadows are $5.50 for a 5g jar or if you are hesitant try a sample baggie for only 1.25.
I got a full size Eyeshadow in Stripper Zombie. *A sour apple green with a gold duocrome and packed with gold sparkle.* (Had to have it as I am OBSESSED with the B horror film zombie Strippers.) 
I also got samples of the following shadows:
Forgotten Dreams: A dusty lilac with a red duochrome.
Witch with A wand:  A neutral light brown with a bit of pink and a surprising sheen.
No More A Witch:  A very dark brown based metallic green.
Speak To The Devil:  A brown based golden olive with a green highlight.
Lizard On A Window Pane:  A very light brown shimmer with green duochrome. 
Boe:  Metallic copper brown with a golden sparkles.
Tenorman's Tears:  A unique and complex color play of blue and sea foam green. A high sheen blue with a slight color shift to green. 

Here are my looks with the shadows I got...
First up is Boe & Witch With A Wand.

 I used Urban Decay Primer Potion. Boe is on the outside and inside corners and the crease. Witch With A Wand is in the center. Boe had a slight red reflect to it I loved. Witch With A wand says it is a neutral brown in the description but I found it to be a straight pale pink. Boe I Vegan & Lip safe. Witch With a Wand is Lip Safe. To finish I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on liner in Smoky and Benefit Bad Girl Lash Mascara.

Next look is Lizard On A Window Pane & Speak To The Devil.

I didnt use primer in this look. I used Speak To The Devil in the crease. It's a nice Chocolate brown color and is Vegan & Lip Safe. On my Lid and above the crease is Lizard On A Window Pane. It's a nice nude shimmer with a slight green shift but you cant really see the shift when applied with the brown color. It is Lip Safe. I also used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Liner in Smoky & Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara.
Next look is Stripper Zombie & Lizard On A Window Pane.

I used Urban Decay Primer Potion. In the Crease is Stripper Zombie. It is Vegan It's an awesome Zombie Skin green color. On My lid and above the crease I used Lizard On A Window Pane. Wearing this shadow with a green brought out the green shift in it beautifully. I also used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Liner in Apathy and Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara.

I used Urban Decay primer potion. In the crease is No More A Witch. It is a nice chocolatey brown color with a forest Green shift. It is Vegan. On the lid and above the crease is Stripper Zombie. I also used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On liner in Apathy and Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara.

Finally I used Witch With A Wand, Forgotten Dreams, & Tenorman's Tears.

This was a tough one to photograph as for some reason I couldn't get my cam to pick up the subtle color differences :( The pics above are without primer and the ones below are with Urban decay primer potion.

Tenorman's Tears is what I used in the inside corner. It is a gorgeous Sea Foam green/blue color. It is a Vegan Product. In the middle is Witch With a Wand. The outside corner is Forgotten dreams which is a pretty pastel purple. I also used Urban Decay 24/7 glide on liner in Desperation and Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara. 

Overall these shadows are gorgeous. They are not highly pigmented but the shimmer more than makes up for it. The colors I got made for some gorgeous more natural looks than I usually do and I love them for that. All of the colors I got have a really nice Earth toned palette and they all work together amazing. Also even when worn without primer they wore well all day without creasing. I would highly recommend this brand :)
