Notoriously Morbid Changeling Top Coat *Vanishing Cabinet Product Review*

vc1

If you read my first VC un-bagging, then you have already heard of this neat product.

Essentially it is a top coat for your lip stick that will make it look iridescent. The specific shade I got “Touch of Magic”, is a VC exclusive, which is cool!

Info from the site:

“Our Changeling Top Coat is hand-formulated and designed to set quickly, creating a shift of color that takes your lip color from ordinary to metallic or mix and match for a multi-chrome effect! We show the Changeling Top Coats paired here with our Mystic Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Rune.” “Siren” is also shown layered over our Mystic Matte in “Arcane.” These will somewhat mattify non-matte lipsticks, leaving the intense color-shifting hue. We’ve tried them with several types of lipsticks and have had varying degrees of success in mattifying them.

Due to popular demand, we have brought back the Changeling’s in the Duowand packaging. The Changeling Top Coats are packaged in a single wand with two 1.5ml ends with a doe foot applicator.

When using your top coat, you will notice some transference of the lip color to the applicator for the top coat. We recommend wiping the applicator to remove the color before placing it back inside the tube to preserve the purity of the top coat. 

*Some settling may occur due to the nature of the formula, so give your Changeling tube a shake before application. “

I also wanted to include the ingredients.

Isododecane, Dimethicone, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Beeswax, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E). May contain: Titanium Dioxide, Tin Oxide, Silica, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate.

You can get a duo of them for $10 on their site, which is here!

Swatches:

Here it is on its own and over the shade “lumiere” from colour pop.

I recommend allowing your lip product to dry all the way before applying the top coat. They recommend using it with matte lip sticks. I second that.

On the lips and Over all thoughts:

tc

Here it is applied over Wet n’ Wild’s velvet matte lip crayon in “hickory smoke”.

I absolutely 100% love using this to pop my lower lip and make it look bigger. I use to do this anyway with just gloss, but this looks so much better! I love the lavender shift and and how it transforms lip products into something completely different!

It is not sticky at all, in fact I never notice it is there after application unless I am looking at my lips. It is also pretty long wearing. No, it will not last as long as the lip stick, but it doesn’t disappear after 15 minuets of wear ass I was expecting it to.

For only $10, I think this is a great product to pick up in different shades, I mean it essential doubles your lip wear options!

I am really excited to try more from this brand.

Vanishing Cabinet By: Notoriously Morbid Sept. 2016 UN- Boxing

vc

Y’all, I am so excited!!

I finally got off the wait list for the Notoriously Morbid Vanishing Cabnet!! It is a monthly subscription that is based off of pop culture. I am just going to put this out there, I am a gigantic nerd. Always have been, always will be. I mean, I come from parents who have themed their christmas tree Star Trek, Star Wars, Kiss, and Harry Potter. I was groomed to be a nerd. Not only am I a nerd, But I am a horror junkie. This also stems from my family, but I don’t use my actual last name for this blog, for some type on anonymity, so I can’t discuss that!

When I heard of this subscription I had to have it, but I had to wait a few months. Not too long ago I got an email that I was off the wait list, and I jumped on the chance to be a part of this. It is also only $13.25 and comes with 4-5 full and sample sized items!

Details on this cabinet:

The theme for this month is “Death is Becoming”. It is based on the dark comedy, “Death Becomes Her”. I have never seen this movie, but I am going to watch it tomorrow during my day off to see what it is all about. It includes 3 shadows and a lip product. It also says that next months box is going to be special, I hope so because October is my favorite time of year!!

What’s Inside?:

Included in the cute purple mailer is the card explaining the theme and product. This includeds the ingredients, if they are vegan, and if they are lip safe. There was also a piece of gum, which is actually my favorite type of bubble gum, so we are off to a good start.

Changeling Top Coat “Touch of Magic: This product is brand new and a VC exclusive, which I think is really neat that we get to get stuff others can’t just buy on the site. This is meant to be put on top of lip products to transform the shade. It is violet with a blue shift. It is said to work best with matte lip products.

The top swatch is “Touch of Magic” alone, and the bottom is it on top of Colour Pop “Lumiere”. Isn’t it pretty? I can’t wait to use it on my lips. It does say on the packaging to shake well before use. The product is watery, so I recommend waiting to apply it over another product once the product has dried down matte. This product is not vegan.

3 Loose Shadows:

I also received 3 loose shadows. All in little jars, with the theme printed on a sticker stuck on  the lid. They also have the name, ingredients, and what VC it came in printed on a sticker on the bottom. All three shadows are vegan.

“Spray Paint”, “Why am I in the Morgue?” (lip safe), “Forever Young” (Lip safe)

These shades are stunning. And so extremely pigmented! All 3 shades are shimmery. The powders are so finely milled that they almost seem fluffy. I have never felt anything like it, I almost couldn’t feel it when I was sticking my fingers in the product to swatch it. It was kind of nuts.

Overall:

I am really thrilled with this subscription and fully intend to keep it. I can not wait to try the products out and up date you on them!

I hope you enjoyed this post! Have you tried this brand before? What do you think of this subscription? What is your favorite small brand? Comment below! Want more B&T? Check this out!
