Back from the hygienists…I will be eating soup today I guess :( AND I have to go back to have my one filling re-done as she managed to ping it out! Fun times…
On the way back from the torture I went to the shop and managed to grab me the new Glamour mag with the free Benefit makeup. Very happy about that, though probably looked like a nutter buying three of the same mag and two cans of soup.
At least I didn’t miss the postman for once! My full sized Meow order arrived today. So I can go back to the correct shade of foundation. It all arrived in a cute little leopard print bag too (see under pots), so sweet!
The postman even bought me my Super Mario Galaxy 2 game today! :) I wasn’t expecting it till tomorrow. I’m glad it came early as I can distract myself for a bit. :) Feeling a bit meh, back to work for now.
I have been playing with my various Meow Cosmetic samples and have found my shade Pampered Puss in Frisky Korat. It has a light-medium coverage. I don’t look like I have foundation on, but I don’t look like death either, so I approve. Also, it is buildable, which is always good!
For those not familiar with the way Meow sort their foundations. Firstly there are 3 formulas dependent on what coverage you are after (light, medium or heavy). Secondly, there are 86 shades divided into 13 breeds (basic skin undertone colours, pink/peach/beige/neutral/warm etc) and then each of the breeds has shades from Lightest,almost white to Very Dark. There is a chart of the list here with pictures of all the powders (just scroll down). Also being powders you can combine shades to get your perfect match. The best thing about this apart from being able to find a good match is that if you take a photograph, preferably outside in sunlight, with no make up on (I know outside with no make up is bad, I’m sure I scared the neighbours!) and post on the forums for Meow a happy helper will respond with suggestions of colours to try, so you don’t get completely lost staring at the massive list! I was completely off with my first guesses!
More Meow Cosmetics after the jump and pictures…Cue horrendous scream…I never look happy in pictures :/ I am friendly I swear!
I ordered a mass sample order from Meow during the free delivery a couple of weeks ago. I can never get a foundation to match so thought I’d give it a shot after reading good reviews. Above is my package and top is a layout of all the foundation samples I ordered that could be a match.
So far I’ve tried Korat in frisky which looked really good and I think is my match. It went on nicely and made my skin look nice and uniform without looking too scary! Today I tried Mau in Frisky and I look quite deathly, so not too good. I’ve also tried Siamese and I looked very yellow. You can’t really tell when putting it on, you have to wait and look in the mirror after a little while to see how you look. The shades are all quite similar, but it seems to make quite a difference if you find the one that suits you.
