Itty bitty swatch post.
BUT FIRST! If you haven't done so yet, check out the Hunger Games trailer!!!!
HOLY.CRAP. I can't wait until March dammit!
Back to makeup...
This year Meow added "Crop Circle" and a new "Abductee" shade to their Alien Abduction Halloween line.
I'm a total dork and when I saw the email saying sale I grabbed everything I wanted in jar form (yay for already swatching!) and skipped the part in the email mentioning the 2 new/kind of hidden shades. Luckily I was able to add them to my order and I'm so glad I did!
Crop Circle reminds me very much of Urban Decay's Baked shade which is my favourite UD shade EVARRR. I swatched them side by side and Crop Circle is a bit darker and just as pretty. <3 it!
Abductee 2011 is a really pretty taupe shade and it photographs like effing MAGIC! To my eyeballs in this dark livingroom light I didn't see the shimmer this intense, but the flash on my camera popped it out. I didn't even have to blur the picture to make it visible, but I included a blurry pic anyways. Just cuz :)
I think this shade photographs better than any other shade I own. How can you see this and NOT WANT IT? You don't want it? CRAZY PERSON.
Oh that's just me :)
Abductee 2011 is very different than last year's Abductee. Abductee 2010 was a dark purple shimmer with silver sparks.

Abductee 2011. So can I snort it?
Since Halloween is over, you'll be SOL getting these dudes for awhile. Last years' Abductee didn't make a comeback, so this years may not show up next year. So I guess this post sort of turned into a Pink Sith "Taupes you can't have" kind of post :D
