Pic’s are clickable.

13 unexplained shadows from Meow Cosmetics. They are good pigmented and fine milled. The whole collection is IMO so amazing, because it’s a mix of duochrome/iridescent, metallic and shimmer shades <3. I ordered all shades in sample form.

Here is a link to the swatches of the whole X Collection.

And a link to the more individually swatched shades:

Wendigo

Official description: Deep metallic duochrome teal.

My description: Like the official description says, this is a metallic duochrome teal with a darker base. I love the duochrome effect in it.

Wendigo is a mythical creature appearing in the mythology of the Algonquian people. It is a malevolent cannibalistic spirit into which humans could transform, or which could possess humans.

Grim Reaper

Official description: Dark silky charcoal with maroons iridescence and red fire.

My description: Grim Reaper is drop-dead gorgeous! It’s my FAVOURITE of the collection. It’s a dark velvety charcoal with a maroon-ruby-red shift that’s way more visible IRL, than on the pictures. Wooow ❤

In English, Death is often given the name Grim Reaper and, from the 15th century onwards, came to be shown as a skeletal figure carrying a large scythe and clothed in a black cloak with a hood.

Wampus Cat

Official description: Gleaming duochrome metallic olive.

My description: This Kitty surprised me! It’s a strong metallic bright shade that looks like molten gold with some green tones (*o*). Very pretty.

The Wampus cat is a creature in American folklore, variously described as some kind of fearsome variation on a cougar. The wampus cat is often compared to the Ewah of Cherokee mythology, a half-woman, half-cat, who supposedly still haunts the forests of eastern Tennessee.
 

Swatches in shade:

Sasquatch

Official description: Dark metallic forest green with golden iridescence.

My description: This shade exactly represent Bigfoot! It’s a mix of dark bark brown and mossy green and some golden shine. Good work Meow Cosmetics 😉

Bigfoot, also known as sasquatch, is an ape-like cryptid that purportedly inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. The term “sasquatch” is an anglicized derivative of the word “sésquac” which means “wild man” in a Salish Native American language.

Hidebehind

Official description: Platinum gray with blue metallic fire.

My description: Hidebehind is ghostly translucent metallic iron grey with a blue undertone. Creepy! 🙂

A hidebehind is a nocturnal fearsome critter from American folklore that preys upon humans that wander the woods,and was credited for the disappearances of early colonial loggers when they failed to return to camp. As its name suggests, the hidebehind is noted for its ability to conceal itself. The hidebehind uses this ability to stalk human prey without being observed and to attack without warning. Early accounts describe hidebehinds as large, powerful animals, despite the fact that no one was able to see them.
