Meow July sale codes and a few words on Lost Rainforest Collection

Hi there!

I know, I know, I said my next post would be about Obsessed Minerals but I still haven't had the time to take swatch photos so this is just a quick post about Meow.

I love Meow but for sometime now I've been a bit dissappointed with their eyeshadow collections. There have been promises like "these colours are so vibrant that they are impossible to photograph" but when I've gotten my paws (teehee) on my goodies, I've let out a sigh. Yes, Meow has quality stuff, don't get me wrong there, but the eyeshadows from Meow that I love have mostly been neutrals. Because the more vibrant colours haven't been as striking as I'd imagined.

Yesterday I got my sample batch of the Lost Rainforest Collection. I opened the letter very slowly and almost closed my eyes when I pulled out the sample baggies. I was blown away. Finally Meow has come up with vibrant, fresh and multifaceted BRIGHT eyeshadows! My favourites are Bromeliad (sparkling coral), Torch (peach with golden fire) and Mantis (sort of a blueish golden aqua) (these colours look gorgeous together when you put Torch on whole upper lid, Bromeliad on the crease and Mantis on the lower lid) and I'm sure I'll be using Toucan (ruby pink) and Macaw (lively yellow with golden sheen), too.

Meow has always had the most amazing blushes and the Lost Rainforest blushes do not dissappoint. I just have to have a full size of Canna (ripe fresh cherry pink). What separates Lost Rainforest blushes from Meow's other blush range is that they are irisdecent. I love the shimmer, it's not over the top at all.

I just read my e-mails and The Lost Rainforest Collection is retiring September 1st (as does Caribbean Escape Collection). So there's still time to sample and even get full sizes, too!

Also, when you use these codes, you get a nifty discount AND a little surprise. Meow is coming up with new stuff later and when you use either of these codes, you get a couple of samples of the upcoming goodies! How cool is that!

You get 15% discount when you use the code CatsLoveJuly.

If you're getting more than $120 worth of stuff, use the code JulyPurr and you'll receive a 20% discount.

I wish I had some pics of my Bromeliad+Torch+Mantis look for you but I can't find my USB cable :(

Found it :) But by then I was looking ragged because I had taken a longer route to home from work with my bike. But I will redo the look (because I love it) and then take pics. Promise!!!

Hi Saila!

Hi Nea!

Sorry, I have been away from my blog for a while because of stupid accidents I seem to keep on having..

I'll try to post some swatch photos this week, maybe even today!
