Notoriously Morbid

I love indie brands, especially gothic and dark themed brands, so I was so thrilled to find this brand, Notoriously Morbid. This line is a fun and creepy and gothic cosmetic brand.

Besides their cosmetics that they carry, they also carry certain alternative clothing, homeware, and accessory brands such as, Killstar, Kreepsville666, Sourpuss, and a lot of other styles that I love. Although it was tempting to go on a huge shopping spree on their site, I definitely was focused on the their makeup.

I love mystery and grab bags, and I decided to get their, “Vanishing Cabinet,” sub grab bag so I can try a little bit of everything and I must say I was not disappointed. For twenty dollars you get a random assortment of five full size NM beauty goodies.

Here are the items that I received from them. From left to right, I got “I want to Believe,” mint highlighter, which I tried out, “They call me Spooky,” blush, another beautiful winner, “The Mother,” eyeshadow, “The Dangerous Type,” eyeshadow which I wore yesterday in the corner of my eyes which I absolutely loved. I just sprayed some MAC prime and prep on my brush to wet it and applied it easily with no fall out which is always good. The last eyeshadow I got was, “Keeper of the Crops.”

Here is a description if you’re interested in getting a mystery grab bag from NM. These are blind Grab Bags and include a mixture of full size items from Past Subs. 

Random mixes include but not limited to: Eyeshadows, Highlighters, Contours, Blushes, Mystic Mattes, Lip Balms, and Changelings.

Blind Grab Bags mean that these are randomly put together before hand. When ordering multiple bags, we can not guarantee that you will not receive duplicate products.   You can not designate what goes in them however you can note in the comments at checkout if you prefer a ONLY vegan bag. Once sold out, there will be no more and can not be replicated.


PLUS you’ll receive any Get With Purchase promotion that we may be running at the time of purchase!

I am very satisfied and happy with my mystery grab bag from Notoriously Morbid and I definitely recommend checking out their site at https://linktr.ee/notoriouslymorbid

My Little Twin Stars Collaboration with Retro Dee

My wonderful girlfriend Retro Dee and I decided for our latest collaboration, we would recreate the cute Little Twin Stars that we both loved as a child. For this collaboration, I am LaLa with my pink hair and makeup while Dee portrayed Kiki with her blue and teal hair and makeup. We both made our photos look vintage/polaroid style which look completely amazing. Dee and I look so cute in our matching Little Twin Stars tops as well. Enjoy our photos and stay tuned for the next collaboration, Retro Dee and I already have in the works and make sure to check out her amazing Retro Vintage Blog: retrodee.wordpress.com

The makeup I wore was from my special edition Sugarpill Cosmetics, Little Twin Stars collection, duh. On my eyes, I wore “Sky Candy,” and under my brow bone, I wore “Dream Dust” and “Cloud Maker.” I used my gorgeous La Mer setting powder and on my lips I used the Sugarpill Little Twin Star liquid lipstick in “Lala,” but also did a few extra shots at the end wearing my matching Little Twin Star lipstick in, “Kiki.” kiki6

Jumpy Jelly Bean Bath Bombs

Screenshot 2020-02-05 at 10.35.38 AM

If you love beauty products and shower and bath products, especially organic and natural, then you must go and check out Jumpyjellybeanbathbombs.com. It is an independent business out of Las Vegas and the owner is a sweetheart and creates the most delicious products. This morning I took a nice bubble bath with the heart Plumeria scented bath bomb and I must say, not only are her products natural, they also make your skin feel incredibly soft. Most of you know that I make my own bath and shower salts and scrubs so I rarely buy bath bombs, but this is a business that I greatly believe in, support, and recommend. 

I’m also proud to say I’m somewhat apart of this fabulous business and site as well. If you go to purchase anything off the site and drop my name in the promo code box: carliesorat, you’ll get a wonderful discount. You can use my discount on anything on her site from the bath bombs, to the soaps/bath putty, to the valentine gift boxes which is an excellent gift for the upcoming holiday.

  Make sure to check out Jumpy Jelly Bean and start shopping and saving now.

XoXo, Carlie

IMG_1886

Very soon I will be doing a FULL FEATURE AND INTERVIEW with one of my close friends, Kate who started her own beauty and makeup company, PUNK GAL GLAM.

    I’m so excited to be an affiliate  for my good friend Kate’s cosmetic business, Punk Glam Girl. She is such a sweetie and very talented with the products she put out. I love using her products and plan on taking photos of me wearing some of her goodies to post here. The first items I bought from Punk Gal Glam, were, “See You Next Fall,” which has the cutest different color leaves. The other item I bought with that was, “Punk’s Not Dead,” which has musical notes that look like my foot tattoo. I love them both. Wait until you see me wearing them.

Double SNOW WHITE Tutorial, Part 2

I decided to amp up my Snow White tutorial. Like in part one of my Snow White tutorial, since I’m a witch, I countered the evil queen/old with poison apple spell and I survived. Because of that, I added a few more steps to part one of my Snow White tutorial. I didn’t redo my entire face, I just added a few more fun steps and did a quick video at the end. Enjoy!

For my eyes, I used my brand new Jolie Beauty Lash Lock glue, which I love, and applied “Carol Anne” from Trixie Cosmetics to the upper and lower inner corner of my eyes over my “Tako” shadow. After that, I used the glue again to apply “Slime Time” from Trixie Cosmetics on the upper eye lids right above my eyeliner all the way to the end. I did the same thing with “Slime Time” under the eye as well. Once I fanned the glitter dry, I re applied a thicker layer of my cake liner and then applied my mascara to my bottom lashes.

   I wanted to amp up my Snow White look but not so much where I don’t look like her anymore.

Since I didn’t have any highlighter on obviously because Snow White didn’t wear highlighter, I decided to use my sparkly beautiful “Candy Apply Drip” Supreme Frost highlighter from Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I mean could it have been a more perfect name and color for this look?

I wanted to pump up my ruby red lips up a bit so I applied the luscious E.L.F Cosmetics, Jelly Pop, juicy gloss in, “Cherry Pop” to just the center of my lips.

I’m very pleased how this second part of my Snow White makeup tutorial look turned out. It was really fun and I had been wanting to do this look for awhile. I hope you all enjoy this and try either of these looks out for yourself.

XOXO, Carlie

OH AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!
