Notoriously Morbid September ’17 Vanishing Cabinet: “Murdering Maven”

Purchased by me/Affiliate links/Reviewer discount

 

Hi, all!

I’ve got the September 2017 Vanishing Cabinet to show you today! The theme is “Murdering Maven”, and it’s a special VC in tribute to the movie Clue. This month’s Vanishing Cabinet contains 6 items, instead of the usual 4 or 5, for a total of five eyeshadows and a blush.

In keeping with the Clue theme, you get to solve a murder mystery! Included in the Vanishing Cabinet is a card that serves as a game piece. On the card is one of the Notoriously Morbid mavens, and on the back is a special website and code. On the NM site, you enter the code for the maven you received, and choose one each from a list of murder weapons and a list of rooms in an attempt to solve the mystery. There can be multiple winners, who will each receive a $10 gift coupon to the shop!

Now, let me show you this month’s pretties and their descriptions!

Casualties Are Inevitable – A light mustard yellow with red sheen and gold to green shifting sparkles.

Accident Prone – A fern green base with a silver shift and sparkles.

Guess Who’s Gonna Get It? – A sexy dark pink with copper sparkles.

Determined To Enjoy Myself – A blue turquoise with copper shift.

It’s You And Me Honeybunch – A matte brown plum that can partner with any of the included shades.

Flames…On The Side Of My Face – a soft shimmery red orange blush (eye safe also!)

I took the macros with my new Mactrem macro lens, which is easy to use despite my nonexistent photography skills. My camera focuses quickly using these lenses, unlike some of my others, which can cause my camera to take several seconds to get a clear shot.

And here are the swatches!

Vibrant colors and sparkle? You know I’m here for it! Here are a couple looks I did with them:

This look was on an ordinary day of appointments running errands…I took these literally running out the door with my purse on my shoulder. And a gratuitous shot with my thick glasses. *snorts*

Logic Boy – base
It’s You And Me Honeybunch – crease, outer corner
Casualties Are Inevitable – inner lid, lower lash line
Guess Who’s Gonna Get It? – lid, lower lash line

Flames…On The Side Of My Face – blush
Power of the Fae – highlighter

This Is My Boomstick (May ‘17 VC) topped with Burnt Flowers

This look was on the day of my daughter’s homecoming dance. My husband and I made it a date night, since it was on the other side of town and it didn’t make sense to come back home. I ended up toning down the lippie a bit with a brown gloss, but forgot to get photos. Derp! I also wore my Earthcharms shop spider earrings.

So Goes My Nation – base
It’s You And Me Honeybunch – transition, outer corner
Accident Prone – inner half of lid, lower lash line
Determined To Enjoy Myself – outer half of lid, lower lash line

Flames…On The Side Of My Face – blush
Echo – highlighter

Underwater Thing Mystic Matte

So, I think this month’s Vanishing Cabinet is pretty exciting, and as much as I love my blues and greens, I’m hard-pressed to pick a favorite from this bunch! I’d probably say that Casualties Are Inevitable would be the color I’d be least likely to choose…but then I’d see that shift, and it’d be in my cart. I absolutely love the inclusion of a matte shade. It’s You And Me Honeybunch is a solid addition to the lineup, and it really does work well with all the other colors. It makes for a wide range of comprehensive looks. It’s also an excellent tribute to this hilarious and memorable movie!
