Oh yes, a Suicide Squad inspired Vanishing Cabinet. I'll keep my opinions on Suicide Squad to myself, but I was still glad to see a bag inspired by the characters.



Info sheet.


Stay Evil, Dollface (Mystic Matte) is a pinky-red matte liquid lipstick.

This is the plainest (by that, I mean no extra goodies in it) Mystic Matte I own and therefore, the most wearable on a general basis. I don't hate the more fun Mystic Mattes, but I still love to find a lipstick that I can wear without feeling super extra. This applied wonderfully (I lost my lip swatch, yikes) and wore well.


Step Out of the Shadows (highlighter) is a pale gold highlighter with pink-to-green shifting microglitters.
I was super excited immediately because this looked like a gold highlighter that would actually look amazing on me, and I was right. It's super pale so it works for us ghosts, but I feel like it would be gorgeous as a more blinding highlighter for darker skin tones.


Ain't you scared is an olive-green eyeshadow with a blue sheen with gold and red microglitters.

 I call this an olive green because it's clear in the container and in some lights looks just like an olive shadow, but then the light shifts and this blue sheen comes out that causes it to look more like a light emerald. For my eye makeup style, this is really only good for a halo eye that's been smoked out.


Here's to honor... is a burgundy shadow with silver microglitters.

I loved the warm-toned, sunrise/sunset shadows 2017 and thus, this was the perfect addition. I really like this to deepen up what I've been calling my sunset eye that I wore far more frequently than I'd like to admit.


Asset Relocation Specialist is a cerulean blue shadow with a green shift.

Oh yes, I definitely needed this blue shadow. It's such a unique shade, like what eyeshadow palettes strive to put in when they include a 'duochrome' blue shadow. This applies nicely but does do best with a dampened brush and this is amazing as a halo!


Stench of Death is a deep purple with gold and lighter purple microglitters. 

Mardi Gras vibes anyone? This didn't hold up to my expectations as it was a little patchy rather than a pop of color and glitter, so this probably is at the back of my drawer, sorry!


Swatches of the bag, not including the Coffin Kisser (using a vinyl from Polished Vino).


Overall, I think the three-year anniversary bag knocked it out of the park. The majority of the items were perfect and while I always strive for a bag that can make a cohesive look, I definitely agree with the choices to match the villians of the movie.

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