Notoriously Morbid: Vanishing Cabinet (Spoilers!)

Recommended Posts

The Twin Peaks collection contains six colors. I enjoy this collection, even though most of the colors are pretty neutral. Douglas Firs is my favorite color out of the bunch though, I love it's color changing properties. I think it's worth purchasing (especially if any of you ladies received an awesome discount code). :)

What @@Allison H said!  Looking at swatch photos, I would have said no, but since we're talking about NM, these colors cannot be properly represented in a photo.  They're neutral, but they're *sparkly* neutral.  Douglas Fir isn't super sparkly (although there is some sparkle in there), but it's one of those pressure-reactive shades that change color the more you work with it!  And if you like shiftacular colors, you do need She's Full of Secrets.

Sorry for all the newbie question posts but, do you get an email with shipping info or anything like that? The payment processed but I don't know if her TAT applies to the VC.

Yes.  You get the email when the charge goes to paypal, then you will get an email when it ships.  Shipping on the VC is usually between the 17th-20th of the month (I checked my emails for when I have got them, been subbed for 4 months) and in that email is the tracking number.

 

Hope that helps!

It does not.  She specifically said that VC processing is separate from regular orders.  I actually received my December VC before my Black Friday order even shipped.

I've seen several reviews that mention the shadows from this VC not being very pigmented. I haven't worn them yet myself, but I think I'll try them applied wet and see how they look that way!

Today I used Fringe Coat for Freddie and it was great.  Super sparkly and good pigment.

Thank you so much, ladies!

I tried out Choo Choo for Chucky today and was a bit disappointed.  I had to layer like crazy and still couldn't get much color out of it.  Maybe this can be a highlighter color?

 

I found mittens for Michael to be so pretty in the jar, but that pigment didn't translate well onto skin, it kind of faded out.

Same!! So excited!! I'm more excited to see what the sneak peak for February is! I am a hopeless romantic so I hope it's a gag me with a spoon sickening sweet lovey Dovey theme.

But I need these new colors on my life! Yessss

yep I got my tracking and I have to say - not excited. I hope February has a better selection. I guess getting one bad month is not that horrible :)

it is a very light color. How I use it is as the lid color and then use the Freddie in the crease. I then have a dark bronze eyeliner that I use, plus I had Jason right under the lower lash line.

 

I happen to like doing a light lid color and then adding the darker colors around it to frame it.

Got my tracking, so excited!  Kinda tempted to just smear it all over my face, but I'll attempt to control myself  :wub:   @@MIKAGlam I'm so torn between wanting something cute and lovey-dovey... and wanting something dark and bitter.  I mean, it is NM!  (Hoping for a dark *theme* rather than dark colors, though!)

At this point, as long as the February theme isn't 50 Shades, I'll be happy! haha.

I was kind of hoping for a _My Bloody Valentine_ (the original Canucksploitation flick, not the band or the remake) theme, but these will ship too late for any V-Day theme to really be a good idea timing-wise. I would love to see seasonally-appropriate horror movies be represented here, and February would be great timing for _The Thing_. January would have been great, too, but getting snowed in still happens in February.

That scene with the blood test is quite possibly my favorite jump-scare *ever*.  I don't startle easily in movies, and I even *know* it's coming, and it *still* gets me.  Every single time.

@ haha I should have elaborated. I want lovey Dovey but the couples that I absolutely adore are couples like Morticia and Gomez, Jack and Sally, Edward and Kim, so to me lovey Dovey is also dark and bitter.

I'm going to start throwing down a wish for a _Picture of Dorian Gray_ collection for February.  It's (sort of) a love story!  It's (definitely) a horror story!  Since we get collections late in the month and thus after any holiday that hits mid-month, the fact that Wilde is Irish (for March) could come into play!

Ooh, same here!  I was hoping they would be here by Wednesday, and it looks like that's actually going to happen!  *And* I'm on vacation, so I don't have to wait until I get home from work to get them in my grubbies!
