Notoriously Morbid: Vanishing Cabinet (Spoilers!)

Recommended Posts

Mine came today (I never even got shipping?) and it's SO PRETTY. The swatches don't do them justice.

Closeups under the spoiler.

 

 

Sorry these are messy...you can't see the pretty sheen and duochromes on some of them!

Mine came today! I don't feel like wearing makeup today so I will definitely play with them tomorrow! I loved all the swatches I did with them.

I have no idea what the clue is

I'm *really* hoping someone gets a different sample so we have two things to base theories on!  If there's a reference to France, the Old West, the Civil War, Greece, or the seven dirty words you can never say on television, that will be a clear pointer to me.  Or Dashing Dallas, Alluring Alexander, or Stunning Stevenson.  Those will also be clear pointers.

The only other thing I can think of for the spoiler is that there has been interest expressed in making Idris Elba the next James Bond...perhaps trying to Entice him into the role?

This was what I thought as well! If they did a 007 theme I would freak! Dual wield golden guns!

That's one theme I would have zero interest in, but I do like Idris Elba (what a babe!) haha.

I've been whining about how he needs to be the next Bond for couple of years now!  Stringer Bell, everybody!  (I would use other words, but the forum's filter will block them.)  The last time I felt this strongly about a particular actor being perfect for the next Bond was ten years ago (ten years ago today, in fact, if I remember that week correctly) when I saw _Layer Cake_ at Sundance.  That entire town was practically on fire with the buzz over that actor even though it was later announced that he would *not* be the next Bond and that they were still looking.  And that actor's name was Daniel Craig.  So.  Even if a studio says someone absolutely positively *will not* be a certain character, I don't believe them, but some of the leaked Sony emails are in reference to possible negotiations with Elba for the role, so fingers are crossed.

 

In VC news, yowza, Headstrong is heavy on the pink sparkles!  I know what I'll be wearing tomorrow!

I actually love the next month's spoiler - if the other colors are this rich, deeper color, I will be happy.   The only color I will keep from this month is headstrong, as I have a weakness for teals. 

 

I did some big swatches here

shadows are from top to bottom - headstrong, rebel, pureheart, showtime, show's over

 

I included this one, as I thought it showed the glitter and iridescence of the shadows nicely.  My swatches don't do them justice

post-103689-0-11779800-1421793224_thumb.jpg

 

1.  headstrong

2.  Rebel

3.  This is what happens when Rebel & Pureheart mix by accident - haha

 

post-103689-0-33058100-1421793223_thumb.jpg

 

1.  Pureheart

2.  Showtime

3.  Show's Over

4.  Enticing Elba (next month's peek...I like this one)

I know this isn't like NM, but maybe since it's February, for VD it's handsome actors? Enticing Elba, Loving Leo, Romancing Ryan, Hot Times With Hiddleston?? I don't know what actors are considered attractive, especially for NM- I'd imagine it's more like Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, that creepy guy from 28 Days Later and Sunshine?? This doesn't match NM at all, but then again I didn't think Jem did, either :)

 

The only other Elba I can think of is in The Count of Monte Cristo, an island.

 

I just Googled and found this, though, and while I know it's just a coincidence (sort of like the Bill  & Ted, which would be amazing) I would flip: http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/03/10/lost-watch-able-was-i-ere-i-saw-elba/?_r=0

 

Also: Got mine today! Super surprised.

If it's going to be hot guys, I think at least one of the Chris's should be included - Evans, Pine, Hemsworth, Pratt, etc  :P

 

 

eta: Maybe it's hot villains?

Pining For Pine, Enamored of Evans, Hot n' Heavy with Hemsworth (or, ya know, Horny For Hemsworth. Or Crazy for Chris).

 

Also, I'm sorry if I offended anyone by calling Cillian Murphy creepy, haha! I have the most plain taste when it comes to actors- I'm attracted to their ACTING- for me, it would go, like, "Passionate About Paul" (Schneider, who most people don't even know exists as an actor, haha) "Seducing Sam Rockwell," "Moaning with Katherin Moennig" (sexiest actress ever!) and "Lustin' for Lisa (Bonet),"  

 

Whatever they do, they need to make one titled "My Body is Ready For ____" maybe "My Body is Ready for Mads Mikkelsen"  (this would also work if they're choosing actors known for iconic villain roles, like Idris on The Wire!)

I'm a little disappointed with the pigmentation of this VC. I've only tried pure heart, headstrong, and Show's Over. When I wear color I like in your face colors and these are very light on me. I love the glitter in them though so I'll just wear them over my UD electric palette, which gets major love from me.

Yeah, I think I'm going to have to try some of these wet.  Anyone have a good tutorial for that?

The brush just needs to be damp - use some tissue to pat off any excess water. You probably want to use primer underneath.

Yep yep, totally agree - mine came today, and after swatching I was left feeling a bit letdown. This is the second month in a row the VC is a bit lackluster, imo. I reeeeallly don't want to cancel, because of my crippling FOMO but I think I will have to make a decision in the next few months.

 

With that said, I did like this month's Lipcraft, more so than Lipgloss for Leatherface.. I think I will wear this month's more, especially as a topper for lipstick and lipliner!

Honestly, I'm finding this to be the case with most of the NM shadows I have. I don't mind sheer sometimes, but I'm finding all of them (I think I have...17 now? 18?) it's a little disappointing. The colors are so pretty but just not as vibrant and pigmented as I want, even foiled. Sometimes they'll swatch vibrantly enough, but go sheerer on my eyes, regardless of what primer I use.

 

I'm torn because I am not loving the shadows themselves compared to others like GDE, DG, and Aromaleigh, but I love the themes so much that I'd hate to cancel. Hmm.

For me, sheer shadows can be beneficial.  I can get a little heavy-handed with the eyeshadows sometimes, so I do love using NM shadows for subtle looks.  I loved most of the themes at the beginning, but the last two haven't been my faves (not a horror movie fan for Merry Monsters, never watched Jem.  Although I *love* the colors in the Jem collection!).  I'm going to stick around for a few more months, but I am SO overloaded on eyeshadow pigments that I my need to overcome my OMG I NEED DIS tendencies and cancel.  Especially if any indie company ever came out with a lippie sub, because yes, I WOULD NEED THAT.  

 

But for now, the VC is an exception to my no-buy, so I'll keep it and trade/gift/sell any themes I'm not fond of.

I admit I was a bit bummed by merry monsters, just because I love horror movies so much, but the shades are just so light and sheer that I haven't been using them! I tend to be heavy handed, too...but I like it that way, haha!  And the gloss makes me look like I made a mess eating a candy bar, ha. I just like my eye makeup to be nice and vibrant, and I like a sheer here and there for highlight, or an occasional low maintenence look, but I get so frustrated when I love a color and keep packing it on and still see almost nothing. Yesterday I experienced that with Wayward Son and Visions. To see them, I had to pack them on over primer and cream shadow, with foil me.

 

I think I'll give it one more month, and if I'm still feeling lackluster, I'll cancel. I needed a reason to cancel one, anyway (I'm really not supposed to have 4 subs, and I need to cut Birchbox after this month (need to use up my points) and one of the indies. I still like them, I'm just not sure it's meeting my color needs.

    • I just realized that it's been 5 years since I was sick. All those years I was only thinking of hospitals, doctors, pills and suffocating depression and no entertainment. Now that I am finally over it all, I am sitting at home not knowing where to push myself into. I used to love playing in Vegas casinos and actually I wouldn't mind if anybody from this forum keeps me a company once again. We could wear our best dresses, have a perfect make up (I know a cool celebrity make up artist!), book our flights and go. I tried to visit a few gambling threads here but they are so godlessly old! Dated 2007 or so. Back then people perhaps were playing not in casinos but with wooden sticks. Now the world so much changed and I feel so damn falling behind it. So what do you say? Anybody cares to visit a casino with me? We can visit a Titanic museum too if you wish. Or come to my house let's play backgammon at least. Let's get wasted! Let's feel the life!
    • I would discourage you from leaving the car in the street. People may steal side mirrors or puncture the tires just out of fun these days.
    • As compared to many other students, your essay is rather good. I like it.
    • I agree about the hygiene idea of tester bottles in the supermarkets, very good point! Actually all these designed bottle samples have the possibility of opening them and poking fingers into cosmetics. I see the matter is with the design itself. Why don't you try new 3D modelling software https://subscribe.cheapoemsoft.com/autodesk/autodesk-autocad-2018/ and design the bottles that are just right? My firm designs plastic screws for packaging, so I guess you can try your bottles too.
    • I would be the first to stick my finger into those bottles, actually.
