Notoriously Morbid was offering A Murder of Crows limited edition set of five eyeshadows for Black Friday, only 50 sets, and each one came with a discount code for either 30%, 40%, or 50% off your purchases for an entire year. I had to get one to see what coupon code I got, and it ended up only being 30%, which is still great to have. I'll definitely be buying lots of Notoriously Morbid this year. The set theme is inspired by the movie, The Crow.
About - Notoriously Morbid is an indie cosmetics company owned by Carrie, and they specialize in fandom collections, with eyeshadows, lip products and lip balms, blushes, and they also have a subscription called the Vanishing Cabinet. The fandom inspired collections they currently have include, Supernatural, Twin Peaks, Buffy, Doctor Who, and various others.
Shipping - I made this order as soon as the collection went up on Black Friday, and it shipped 22 days later via USPS and arrived in 3 days from West Virginia to California.
Product Size - This collection was packaged in full size jars, but they are square instead of round. They were extremely messy and the shadows leaked out of the jars everywhere. I photographed them, and then quickly put them into round jars that fit the lids.
Free Samples - I did not receive any free samples with this order.
Battalions of Sorrow -
This shade is a mauve matte pink shade with a slight sheen. I like this, I think it would work well as a transition shade, or paired with Thirty Hours of Pain.
Degrees of Death and Virtue -
I really like this shadow, it's a midnight teal dark blue shade with a slight blue sheen. Very dark and dramatic, but I think it would pair well with It Can't Rain All The Time and Nothing is Trivial.
It Can't Rain All The Time -
This shade is a dark royal blue with a silver sheen and sparkles. I think it would pair really well with Nothing is Trivial.
This is a really light golden blue shade with a strong gold duochrome. This would probably work well paired with any of the other colors in the collection, but especially It Can't Rain All The Time or Degrees of Death and Virtue.
Thirty Hours Of Pain -
This is a really beautiful deep maroon burgundy color with a red sheen. Blended out, it works well as an all over shade, but would also look nice with a bit of Nothing Is Trivial patted on over the top of this on the lid. Or use this as the crease shade with Battalions of Sorrow.
Overall, I honestly just bought this collection for the discount code, I didn't really know what to expect from the shadows themselves. But they really surprised me. 3 blues and 2 pink/purple shades, but they seem like they would all work really well together. I don't mind shadows from similar color families, as long as they can be paired together and won't look too similar. These will be perfect for that, I am looking forward to trying to create looks from several of these shadows. I think my favorites were Degrees Of Death and Virtue and Thirty Hours of Pain. But I think Battalions of Sorrow would pair well with just about anything else in my collection as a transition shade. I wish I had gotten a higher discount, but it really is hard to be disappointed by a 30% year long discount code.
Customer Service - I did not have to contact customer service about any problems with this order. I did hear that some were receiving a $5 off code because of the messiness of the square jars they used for this collection, but I never received one.
Availability - This collection was limited edition and only available for Black Friday.
Overall Satisfaction - My favorite shades were Degrees Of Death and Virtue and Thirty Hours of Pain, and I'm really glad I have a year long Notoriously Morbid discount code.
