Meow's lightest mineral foundations in Chausie, Bengal, Abyssinian, Ocicat and Manx

Welcome to the mineral makeup store celebrating all sorts of felines :). Meow Cosmetics is just that - and if only you could have seen the store some years ago! So bloody confusing - but the good thing was, most MMU lovers got to be quite well informed about all sorts of cat breeds. Not a bad thing in itself, broads the horizons. Homepage has been redone though so people with less patience can now also shop there. (But it was never as bad as Dreamworld...)

I made an order in October when they had their "20% off entire store + free international shipping" offer and managed to get this parcel without having to deal with customs (Meow's shipping etc is not cheap - when you get an offer like this, you better grab it). Their foundations have quite a good renomé. I have some samples in level 0 from earlier so I already new they made some very light tones indeed and therefore picked level 1 for myself - and guess what - too light  again :D. This happens so seldom that I am not much bothered about it - this store does cater to everyone's needs indeed - even Snow Whites are not forgotten. Packaging is also very, very nice looking :).

Foundations come in 3 different recipes and 13(!) different tone-groups. This makes choosing the right one complicated indeed. Most tones have quite accurate color descriptions but the sheer amount of them is overwhelming.

Tones swatched here are:
Pampered Puss (medium coverage) - Inquisitive (0) Chausie (cool pink)
Pampered Puss (medium coverage) - Inquisitive (0) Bengal (cool beige)
Pampered Puss (medium coverage) - Sleek (1) Abyssinian (yellow beige)
Purrrfect Puss (light to medium coverage) - Sleek (1) Ocicat (olive/beige)
Flawless Feline (full coverage) - Sleek (1) Manx (yellow/peach).

I tried to choose colors that would help me counteract redness and looked at as many swatches as google offered but I made my decision mainly based on the main foundation chart. So now I have 3 Munchkins (meaning 25 gr per volume jar) of which only Ocicat is usable, the others will be usable should I live some years underground. Ok, maybe I could wear Sleek Abyssinian in February... but that's a maybe. Basically I have now 2 jars of foundation looking for a new home. There aren't many people paler then me - will be a bit problematic. And of course the one color of the three that I do find wearable just happens to be the one with the lightest coverage. Bummer.

Meow like every self-respecting company also adds small samples to every order. This time it was their Pandora's box Collection and the tones were Mayhem (dark brown with copper sheen/very small sparkles) and Chaos (reddish gold). 

Am not too fond of the latter but am wearing Mayhem on these pics here.
And here's a pic of all the stuff used today:

The Conservatorie's eyeshadow primer
NYX jumbo eyeliner in Milk
The Conservatorie's matte dark brown pigment in Brown Coco in the crease
Meow's Mayhem all over lid
The Conservatorie's Shimmering Nude as blush (no coverage, more like pink sheen)
Meow's foundation in Purrfect Puss Sleek Ocicat
Jane Iredale's Just Kissed lip plumper in L.A. on the lips (a very nice color BUT unfortunately always becomes invisible on the photos)
Manhattan Cosmetics Ultimate Long&  Curl mascara

Mina kasutan neidsamu Meow üliheledaid viimase õrna kihina, sest mineraalmeik kipub minu näol oksüdeeruma - kui valin naha tooni meigipõhja, on nägu mõne aja pärast liiga tume. Nendesamade heledatega teeb aga täpselt parajaks.

See oleks jah üks hea võimalus nende kasutamiseks :) Ma sain ühele juba uue omaniku ja teine läheb uude koju loodetavasti homme. Mul polegi nagu suurt oksüdeerumist ette tulnud... vähemalt ei tule meelde - see oli mul vanasti mureks kui jumestuskreeme kasutasin. Iseenesest saaks neid ju kasutada ka kui viitsiks kontuurida ja põsepunatada aga kellel ikka hommikuti seda ega nii laialt käes on :)

Hi, I just wonder how you got the foundation to cover like that! I got a bit surprised that it was so...compact kind of because it's unusual with a mineral foundation? Did you blend it with water or something or is it just that much covering in it, because it looks absolutely fantastic! /Lejla

I just found your blog. You look absolutely flawless- exquisite skin colour- in the ocicat. I think it will be perfect for me but one shade darker.
Thank you for your pic.
