Over the last few months I've been falling deeper and deeper in love with Meow Cosmetics. I first learned of them from Phyrra.net and from there I began exploring their website. And I do mean explore. For all the great things about Meow, which are many, their website can be overwhelming and confusing to navigate. Some of their best collections are buried so deep within their site they can be missed entirely if you don't know their sub pages...but I digress. So... they are awesome! I've tried their shadows, blushes, primers, correctors, concealers and foundations. Loved 'em all. One collection in particular keeps popping up as the "must buy" collection. Castaway.....
"Inspired by the colors and emotions of the worlds most beautiful beaches. Quiet, calm, serene, beautiful and as unpredictable as the ocean itself." Castaway is a surprisingly rich collection. Meow Cosmetics shadows are complex in a way that does not always come across in photos. I had a tough time figuring out why people were so worked up over Castaway. Then I saw this tutorial by the lovely Phyrra. She showcased Siesta Key and I placed my order that night. My only regret is I didn't buy them all.
Hanalei Bay is a frosted rose toned taupe.
Cinnamon Bay is a medium rosey golden taupe
Bora Bora Y U No photograph better? Bora Bora is an intriguing olive with gold and copper notes.
Siesta Key is a burnished copper over a rosey charcoal base. This is a knockout color.
I encourage you to grab these shadows while you can. I was floored by how pretty and interesting these shadows are. Really, most of Meow Cosmetics shadows are like that. Pretty, until you swatch them, then they are punch you in the face stunners. Castaway is a limited edition collection, so don't snooze. If you try only one..make it Siesta Key. That color is a workhorse!
