A little while ago Meow Cosmetics posted on Facebook that they were looking for a few bloggers to review some of the shades from their latest collection "Shades of Meow Volume 3"*, this collection consists of 50 shades and 10 are released in each new volume with the 10 best selling shades ultimately becoming becoming a permanent collection. These 10 shades all have erotic names which i really love and are a little naughty, rather than the crude product names I've seen a lot from other brands recently. As always although i was sent these for review purposes my opinions are 100% honest and my own.
All the shades are pretty bright and not something i may have picked for myself so it really was great to get out of my comfort zone for a bit while testing these out. Sample sizes are priced at a reasonable $1 a baggie giving you a chance to try shades out before committing to a full size, and full sizes at $8.25. They also have a free worldwide shipping with orders over $40 offer currently running.
Discipline was the shade that really caught my eye as soon as i opened them, it is an absolutely gorgeous shimmery orange, and even though I've been saying it a lot... perfect for summer. I've been shopping my stash quite a bit lately and its a shade i actually don't have anything like (madness, i know!). Texture wise i found a few of these a little drier than others with the more shimmery ones being a lot easier to work with. Swinger i had the most trouble with blending which was a shame since it is such a beautiful shade. I'm really looking forward to doing a FOTD using Discipline and Strawberries, its about time i got out of my neutral safety blanket i think!
Disciple, Swinger, Threesome, Slave, Strawberries.
Master, Whipped Cream, BDSM, Lascivious, Hot Wax.
I've found that like most loose eyeshadows that many are best applied wet or over a sticky base like Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy, this just helps the colours and sparkle to really pop and last throughout the day. All the above are swatched dry as i know many people prefer to apply this way.
The real star of the show in this collection for me is BDSM. Applied wet (pictured below), this shade is absolutely stunning. Now this is where i fail miserably at a description but my photos really do not do it justice, it is an absolutely gorgeous dirty purple with extremely fine pinky silver glitter. If i had to pick just one from the collection, this would be it! I think it would work as a great alternative than a traditional smokey eye, so you lot might see a FOTD with this beauty soon!
Overall i think although a few shades weren't really my cup of tea, BDSM and Discipline are definitely worth checking out. And of course the others if you're into brights!
