How Do Subscribers Rate Notoriously Morbid Vanishing Cabinet?
WRITE A REVIEW
Ok, first the cons - it is really hard to get this subscription. The company is run by just two girls and everything is hand made, so once you are on the waiting list, it does take a while to actually get subscribed. Plus shipping turnaround can take a while because again, Laura and Carrie do EVERYTHING on their own. That being said, this month they had a very few on-time only Vanishing Cabinets available for those not on the subscriber's list, and I snagged one. The theme was "Drop Dead Gorgeous" and featured 4 shadows and a gloss inspired by the amazing goth women of yesteryear: Morticia Addams, Lilly Munster, Elvira, and the Bride of Frankenstein. They also always include theme-appropriate candy. This month it was cinnamon Jolly Rancher.
Let me say this - their products are not only absolutely GORGEOUS, but the quality is truly top notch. I am OBSESSED. Definitely get your name on the waiting list, join the customer crypt on Facebook and buy their regular inventory from their website because these girls are KILLING IT!
Lots of fun! The price is right (less than $15) and you get... something like 2-3 loose eyeshadows, something for the lips, plus maybe something for the cheeks (highlighter I've usually found). Usually around 4 full size items, all around geeky-gothy themes (Gremlins, Nightmare on Elm Street, Death Becomes Her, Charmed, etc). The brand is indie, which means it's run by only a few (2?) women, which means there's a huge TAT and sometimes things are not gonna be sephora perfect (for example, one of the lip colors didn't work out like they wanted so they had to put it in the next month's box. They had communicated this up front and provided recourse if you weren't gonna get the box, though). It has its followers, but personally I prefer the larger brands. Even then I've stuck around for this box. I love the themes because I too am a huge geek!
I wanted to like this box so much because everything I saw on the site was amazing, just my style. While the price/customer service/shipping time is all great, I was pretty disappointed in what I received. Three loose eyeshadows, two of which were super similar in color, and a color-changing lip gloss that only did a tiny bit of what it was supposed to do. I might try again at some point when the wait list opens up again, but it just seemed like even though other people really love this box, I didn't see what all the hype was about.
I have had this subscription for almost two years, and it just keeps getting better. The products are top notch--great quality and AMAZING color, and the retail value always exceeds the subscription costs. If you're in to lip products, they've recently added a lip box, too.
This is my all time favorite sub box. I was on the waitlist for a year before I finally was able to subscribe, but it was well worth the wait. The products are handmade by two amazing women and are GORGEOUS. Eyeshadows that change color depending on the lighting or how much pressure you use to apply. Glittery, chrome, monochromatic, iridescent, the type of finishes in eyeshadows is never ending. Every month is a new theme with new limited edition eye shadow colors. There are also gorgeous blushes, highlighters, face powders, lip glosses that change color, it's incredible. Plus, on top of the gorgeous, limited edition products you get monthly, you also get a coupon for a free item or 20% off an order. And always a piece of candy that goes along with that month's theme. You have to check this sub out. There is no other makeup company in the world that makes colors and finishes like this one.
