Meow Snowflakes

Today I'd like to show you some Meow Snowflakes.  I only got 2 of them and regret not getting them all. These are easily my favorite from the Meow Holiday collection.  I got samples of Sleet and Snowball.  Love Love Love!

Sleet, Snowball

I placed another order yesterday to get a full sized jar of Sleet and samples of the rest of the collection, along with some other goodies. :)
Here is a look I did w/the Snowflakes.  I was rockin the Ice Princess look:

I love how the frosty eye colors go w/Ballerina blush


Products used:

~Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
~Meow Snowflakes in Sleet (light aqua with iridescent blue snowflake sparkle) and Snowball (pure white with blue iridescent sparkle)
~Dior Lash Primer
~DiorShow Mascara (which is the most overrated product ever, btw. If you are thinking of purchasing this... please save yourself the moolah and pick up Maybelline Great Lash at your local drugstore)
~Meow Purrfect Puss foundation (I think?) in Sleek Mau
~ Meow Ballerina blush from the Sugarplums collection
~Fresh Sugar lip gloss in Sugar Desire

As mentioned above I liked these luvlies enough to order a full sized jar of Sleet.  I found Sleet to be more of a medium-ish silvery aqua... It is delightful, nonetheless. I was tempted to get Snowball as well but I have soooooo many white eyeshadows w/blue sparkles that are very similar to this.  I have a bit of a white eyeshadow obsession.  I also got full sizes of Ballerina blush (uber pretty wintery light rosy pink) and Silk Ice from the Ice Blossoms collection (I could not resist its whiteness) along with some more samples of Holiday stuff I missed last time.  Meow Meow Meow :D
Me goofin around w/my kitteh Tigger :D

Meow Cosmetics Merry Mayhem

Happy Weekend before Christmas Weekend!!  So finally I have some swatches of Meow's delightful X-Mass offerings. *Edit: Of course I mean "Holiday" offerings. My bad.* These are the eyeshadow samples I got from the Merry Mayhem collection.  I find most of them awesome and sparkletastic... though I did not care much for Jingle.  Reds are def not my fave...I felt I needed it if I were to get Jangle (the one I used in a look a couple posts down).  It seemed like it would be a nice rich burgundy red, but turned out to be just red red.  Red seems to always look orangy on me and it's not flattering.  And turns out I actually like hohoho better than jangle. Oh Wellz. Meow says that hohoho is "similar to jangle, but without the sparkle".  I don't get this so much. I find them to indeed be similar but both have sparkle and jangle is more of a muted golden green and hohoho more of a vibrant green green.  
If you happened to find me searching for swatches of these bad boys... you have my sincere apologies.  My swatching skills are teh suck as I'm a makeup blogging AND camera n00b so I leave you with a link of Painted's swatches of this full collection.  Hers are much betterer.
But all that nonsense aside, these ones I picked up are very pretty colors.  If you decide to order up some awesomeness at the shop today... it's the last day of their 12 Days of Meow promo 20% off plus free shipping with coupon code "JingleCat".... AND with your purchase you get entered to win stuff... AND today is the last day they will be shipping out orders of sparkly happiness until 1/8/12 so HURRY!!!!!

*Note: I did alter these pics a bit using the software that came w/my camera, but it was in an attempt to make the colors look more accurate to real life.  I don't do this too often, but for these shades it seemed to help.

Persephone and Geek Chic Awesomeness

I got some awesomeness in the mail yesterday! I haven't gotten the chance to play with them too much yet, but I thought I'd share some pics.

Persephone Minerals:
Snowflakes and reindeer and a lil jingle ball w/my sparklies!

I am a sucker for such cute packaging.  Everything was wrapped up securely yet easy to unwrap.

Geek Chic:

Cool packaging and everything here was wrapped up nicely as well.  There was a bit of spillage from some of the eyeshadows, but there are sifters on the jars and they were securely wrapped up in plastic so it was no big deal. 

I'm very excited to play with these! Though I'm going to have to put that off until I'm done checking out the Meow X-Mass collection, as I need to figure out if I want any full size jars before the collection is retired.  I'm gonna try to get some swatches and stuff of those before the end of the week.  So until then, I give you kitteh:

She enjoys my makeup hauls almost as much as I do :)

Quickie Meow EOTD

Here's the eye look I did last night w/some of Meow's new X-Mass collections.  This was my first time testing these out; I ordered a bunch of samples which came in the mail the other day.  I'm hoping to get some swatches sometime this week when there will (hopefully) be some sun here.  For this look I used Serenity (complex tawny silver with a subtle warm silky finish) from the Holiday Wishes Collection and Jangle (deep mistletoe green with bright green iridescence and green, gold and silver sparkle) from the Merry Mayhem collection.  I thought it came out alright...I don't wear much green shadows other than pastels.  Interesting how my eye color looks more greyish in contrast. I believe the blending could use some work.  I'm thinking I may need some new brushes.  I'm really wanting this one.

Products used:

~Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
~Meow in Jangle
~Meow in Serenity
~UD 24/7 Pencil in Covet
~UD Big Fatty Mascara in Black Cherry (you can barely tell it's there, it doesn't show up much on me)

No full face pics for now, as my skin's been a mess, my eyebrow situation is pitiful at the moment and I'm far too goofy looking in these pics for public viewing :P
