Meow Cosmetics: Ideal Eyes Swatches

So sorry for the lack of posts; I've been swamped at work, I thought it would let up but it just keeps getting busier. Plus, I've been running around trying to get my grad school applications finished. That's another bit off my time. In any case, today's my birthday so while I'm lounging around, I thought I'd get some swatches in. :D

Here are some colors from Meow's Ideal Eyes collection. I LOVED the colors from this collection. So many neutral and creamy colors I can use everyday.













What are some colors that interest you in this set?

Meow Cosmetics: Vandal Eyes Swatches

Hello all! So I was planning on driving back to New York this weekend to celebrate Chinese New Year's with my family. Due to Upstate NY being the dumping grounds for all that snow, I may need to reschedule. My weekend does not free up for a while after that. :( Cross my fingers for clear weather!

When I first got into mineral makeup, I had trouble finding good swatches. Even more difficult was finding swatches of older collections that were good! So I started this blog in hopes of sharing my own experiences with these shades and hope you guys find it informative as well. :) My old swatches were HORRIBLE. Terrible lighting and some of the shades do not even come close. I will be redoing those once I finish up my current pile of swatches.

Today, it's the very vibrant Vandal Eyes collection set by Meow.

Onwards to the swatches:













Solicitation looks like one of those colors you can wear everyday. I love it. :D

Have you checked out this collection before? What are your favorites?

Meow Cosmetics: Holiday Wishes Swatches

Hello all! I have having a terrible case of eye sensitivity. They're bright red, stinging, and they won't stop tearing. My coworker thinks I've got pink eye...s. I don't know how I would've gotten it unless it's allergies. It's too cold to be spring yet.

I went to BellaLuxe yesterday for a re-lash. I didn't think I needed it since it's only been 2 weeks but I would've not be eligible for my re-lash after the 3 week period. I'm leaving to go back to NY this upcoming weekend, which would've been my 3rd week so I had to do it this past weekend. Anyways, after getting them done...well, I might not have needed them (only a couple fell out) but I LOVE how lush they look. As always, Dasha did a FANTASTIC job. So very happy with them - yay! :D They also started selling this vitamin supplement called Lash Drops which promotes/targets eyelash growth. More on this later. I can't wait to see if it really works for me. It looks like it worked superbly on Mitzi so I'm hoping for similar results. Right now, I'm on Day 2. :D

So onwards to the fun stuff! Meow's Holiday Wishes collection. Now I know these items are back in the vault but it's never too early to start planning right? :D Besides, I loved these colors so much, I couldn't help but share (along with the other 2,345 blog posts published on this collection xD). Beautiful colors!









Dammit, this should've been one of the first collections I swatched! GARRR. Now I have to wait an entire year before I can purchase full-sized collections. D: D: D: Sadface.

Haha, what are your favorite colors from this collection?
