This month things were different for Notoriously Morbid. Instead of the paper information sheets, this month came with a card. They also have taken out the sifters until a better one is found, because the one they were using was causing lifting.

The March bag theme is Donnie Darko.


First up is Cellar Door. Cellar Door is a deep burgundy red with silver sparkles.


Cellar Door is based on Karen Pomeroy's palette. It applies very nicely and I love how deep and mysterious it is. It's not a shade that I would typically wear, but I love the shade and need it in lip form.

Frank is next, and it's a great smokey grey with slight sparkles.


Frank is based on Frank him(it?)self, and I think it matches the character perfectly. It's not too dark, even if you apply heavily, and it adds the perfect bit of smoke to any look.

Next is Philosophy of Time Travel, a vibrant purple.


Philosophy of Time Travel, based on Roberta Sparrow, is such a perfect formula. It applied perfectly and it has the right amount of sheen without being too powerful.

Finally, there is Wake Up. Wake Up is an indigo base with tons of gold shift and shimmer.


Wake Up is based on Donnie Darko himself, and I am absolutely in love. It goes on so smoothly and it is just perfect on. It's my favorite shade of the month and I feel like it should become a permanent shadow in Notoriously Morbid's line-up.


There was a sample of a solid perfume, Mad World, which smells amazing. It definitely matches the theme of the bag, even though I cannot pinpoint the scents in the perfume. Just trust me, it's great! I definitely love the theme, and it makes me want to watch Donnie Darko again. I love the throwback to an older movie and I think the ladies at Notoriously Morbid did a great job with it!

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!
