Meow Cosmetics IdealEyes - 4 swatches

Four more Meow IdealEyes swatches for you. These are their "Purrls", a pearlized finish that's a nice step up from matte but not as intense as the sparkly ones.



I took a pic outside with flash but Photobucket isn't cooperating. Sorry!

Meow's Color Descriptions are italicized, my thoughts after:

Purrrfect Stranger - The muted dusty plum that will have you wondering where it's been all your life. It looks like a really ugly shade of brown (no offense!) in the sample baggie, but swatched on my arm really becomes that lovely plum shade they said it would. Another reminder that you can't judge a book by its cover, or a shade based on the way it looks in the baggie.

Claws-trophobic - platinum taupe. This appears sort of coppery/bronze on me, and more medium brownish than taupe. Pretty, would make a great liner.

Carnivore - wine with rich pumpkin hues. Good description - would work really well with any sort of red eye look, especially for you dark eyed ladies.

That Cat! - deep smoke with a sheer plum undertone. This appears more metallic purple on me, great for a dark eye.

Keep in mind how we see color is subjective - and how one color looks on me may look different on you. Take advantage of samples as often as you can, so you won't be disappointed purchasing a full size that you feel isn't quite what you expected. And even better, sometimes you get some nice surprises!

I hope you've found the swatches helpful. Thanks for looking.
