Meow Cosmetics Shattered Equinox Swatches

So I've noticed I've kind of turned this into an "ALL MEOW ALL TEH TIME" blog. I can't help it! I like swatching whole collections and I've been stocking up over the years so since I have at least samples of them all, it's SO EASY! The only time killer is waiting for my brush to dry before moving onto the next collection. Daylight is also good. I like to try to sneak in at least 1 windowlight, no flash shot. So that means no nighttime swatching. Which sucks, because that seems to be the time when I'm all gung ho and doing stuff.

I was going to do the Supernaturals or Sunless Sea collections but found a whole stash of Shattered Equinox instead!

SWEET!

You can find this by clicking the "What's New at Meow" link on the left hand side of their page and scrolling down.


I didn't even remember sampling the whole collection. I don't wear many dark shadows so I just have 1 full size from this collection, Deranged. It could have been the name that sucked me in. IT SUITS ME QUITE PERFECTLY KTHX


Also in my stash of samples I found 3 samples of the blushes. I'm missing Delicious Despair and Despondent Daydream which kinda bugs me because that means this post is incomplete. GAH!!

I don't have a good technique for swatching blush so I just smeared my finger on my arm and VIOLA instand magic :D

So here we go! All swatched over UDPP except the blushes.





Top row L-R: Bane, Turmoil, Contagion, Deranged, Tarnished, Dour, Purpuraceous
Bottom row L-R: Perverse, Grandiloquent, Balderdash, Melancholy, Morose, Violaceous, Sardonic

I still plan on swatching in the future:
Sunless Sea 9
Supernaturals 10
Summer Carnival in case it comes back this summer 13
Lost Rainforest 25
Caribbean Escape 25
Egyptian Treasures 22
Wild Child 23
Halloween Zombies 19
Dance of Death 17
Alien Abduction(only 7 months to go til Halloween!) 22
Ice Blossoms 8
Snowflakes 9
Misfits 4
Aurora 2
(So those last 4 are Xmas collections, better late than never :)


Swatching old stuff is awesome because I don't have to break a no-buy already having the stuff. BONUS!

Meow shadows I don't have:
Idealeyes
Moderneyes
Vandaleyes (have a couple samples but not whole collection)
Scandaleyes
Cateyes
Feliners (just have a few samples from there also, not whole collection)

That list is mucho smaller :D

So some of those are teeny tiny collections but ones like the Lost Rainforest are monsters so we'll see how far I get before procrastination takes over.

SO MANY SPARKLIES!

Makes the world go round.

  1. arghh. I keep saying I'm gonna try some of these eyeshadows but I always end up not being able to decide or saying "I own something similar" =/ They are so freaking beautiful!

    1. Never listen to that other voice and stick with the "BUY IT ALL" one :D Or at least samples. So many shades you can never really tell if you'll like it or not unless you see it out of the bag.
