Meow Cosmetics – X Collection – Jersey Devil, Nessie, Chupacabra & Yeti

30 Oct

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:

Jersey Devil

  

Official description: Bright berry with red iridescence.

My description: Jersey Devil is a juicy berry-pink with a lighter sheen. Although it’s pink, I think it’s a pretty shade.

The Jersey Devil is a legendary creature or cryptid said to inhabit the Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey. The creature is often described as a flying biped with hooves, but there are many variations.

Nessie

  

Official description: Mysterious aquatic teal with blue/green iridescence.

My description: Nessie surprised me. I expected a shade with a shimmery base, but it has a low luster finish. I really like the velvety look of the teal-blue base with an amazing turquoise iridescence.

The Loch Ness Monster or Nessie is a cryptid that is reputed to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. The most frequent speculation is that the creature represents a line of long-surviving plesiosaurs. It is similar to other supposed lake monsters in Scotland and elsewhere, though its description varies from one account to the next.

Chupacabra

  

Official description: Smoky duochrome purple with red iridescence.

My description: Chupacabrrrra 😀 is very similar to Snipe, but with a smoky tinge in it. Pretty 🙂

The chupacabras is a legendary cryptid rumored to inhabit parts of the Americas. It is associated more recently with sightings of an allegedly unknown animal in Puerto Rico (where these sightings were first reported), Mexico, and the United States, especially in the latter’s Latin American communities. The name comes from the animal’s reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats.

Yeti

  

Official description: Frozen duochrome icy blue with green iridescence.

My description: Yeti is a very light glacier blue with a green-blue sheen. Good for highlighting and brightening the eye when you use it on the tear duct.

The Yeti or Abominable Snowman is an ape-like cryptid said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal, India and Tibet.The names Yeti and Meh-Teh are commonly used by the people indigenous to the region, and are part of their history and mythology. Stories of the Yeti first emerged as a facet of Western popular culture in the 19th century. The Yeti may be considered a sort of parallel to the Bigfoot of North America.

The descritpions of the creatures are from here: Wikipedia.

      Mene tudi nobena ne zelo pritegne.. Chupacabra je sicer luštna, a mi je Snipe iz iste kolekcije lepša..
