Notoriously Morbid Swatches and Mini Reviews by Kaylee Bee
Hello wonderful people of the interwebs! My name is Kaylee Bee, and I am this weeks guest poster. I just want to thank Luna for the opportunity to do this. I am so very excited and I hope you all enjoy!
Today I will be doing swatches and reviews of my favorite indie brand, Notoriously Morbid. When I first got into indies, about 6 months ago, this was one of the very first brands I tried. It was love at first swatch! So without further ado, I present to you some of my NM collection!
Captivated: A metallic olive green with copper sparkles
Swatched: Over Darling Girl Primped & Primed. There was no major change over glitter glue and pixie epoxy.
My thoughts: I adore this color to pieces. It’s definitely not one I wear to work, but it’s so much fun to put on for a day out on the weekends! I’m a sucker for greens, especially olives, so I couldn’t resist this one.
Teacher in Tweed: An olive brown that practically screams librarian.
Swatched: Over Primped & Primed, pixy epoxy, and bare. Being a matte texture, it does not take well over a glitter glue.
My thoughts: This is a really nice matte brown color. It’s much darker in person and looks much different depending on what base you decide to put it over, as shown here. I like that it’s so versatile, and really changes colors over primers. So experiment and find a combination you like! I personally like to pair it with pixy epoxy!
Bad Juju: A warm, coraly magenta with an airy lavender duochrome.
Swatched: Over elf glitter glue. Primped & Primed (top) and Pixy Epoxy (bottom) also shown for comparison. Glitter glue brings out the lavender duo chrome more.
My throughts: I didn’t think I’d love this color as much as I do. The shift looks a bit more blue in real life, but it’s lovely when it hits the right light. This is subtle and natural enough to wear in a work environment in my opinion.
Pale Rider: A dusty matte purple
Swatched: Over Primped & Primed and bared. As with Teacher in Tweed, avoid sticky primers cause it will clump if you’re not too careful.
My thoughts: This is by far my favorite of the lot. These pictures don’t do it justice by any means. It’s hard to capture the true color of this, but it’s exactly as described with grey undertones and it is beautiful.
Crimson Horror: A gorgeous deep red with a hint of metallic and a little sparkle that is sure to get you noticed
Swatched: Over primped and primed, glitter glue, and pixy epoxy.
My thoughts: So I am a HUGE red fan. Before the Venus palette (which is awesome but I don’t support Lime Crime), all my friends would make fun of me for the unusual color choice. So when I saw this color I had to have it. Plus Doctor Who. I love to wear it over Pixy Epoxy, as it really brings out the red. I’m not sure if this is discontinued or out of stock, but as of right now I cannot find it on the site.
Mint To Die For: A matte mint with a tiny amount of glitter for an added twisted classic look.
Swatched: It shows up pretty much the same over all three primers
My thoughts: This is a really beautiful mint color. As much as I love mint, it just doesn’t work with my skin tone. However, if you can work pastels and love spring, this is definitely a color for you!
