I have an enormous amount of swatches to show you but have not enough time. I will try do my best <__< Btw.. here are some swatches! Yay! xD I swatched the Glow powders from Meow Cosmetics Egyptian Treasures Collection.

Eternal

 

Official description: Cool toned diffused soft wine with sheer golden sheen.
 

My opinion: Eternal is very pretty but way too dark for me. It’s a gorgeous plummy color with a pretty sheen, like the other two too. I recommend this glow powder to a girl who has a darker and cool skin tone.

Diety

 

Official description: Neutral toned muted plum with soft lustrous golden sheen.
 

My opinion: On my olive skin, Diety looks perfect! I think it’s a truly amazing powder glow and will suite all other skin tones too 😉

Immortal

 

Official description: Neutral toned golden beige with sheer caramelized cinnamon amber highlights.
 

My opinion: I truly hoped that this shade will be great for me, but it looks grey/ashy on me :(. I don’t really know why, because golden/ashy/olive colors normally look great on me. Maybe I’m just too yellow toned (and not enough beige)? I think you MUST try it if you are a girl with beige undertones.

Overall I think that these three glow powders are perfect, to add some glow to your appearance. They are fine milled, apply really easy, and have good pigmentation. The only minus is that all three colors are more on the darker side. I must try to mix all the shades with a transparent powder.. Maybe is Immortal just too dark for me, like Eternal.

Tutankhamun

Official description: Otherwise known as “King Tut” metallic maroon (oooh baby!).

My description: Tut is a maroon/red shade with a metallic finish. This elegant and eye-catching shade reminds me on heavy velvet curtains – in a good way 🙂 . Brilliant and noble.

Temple

Official description: Diffused sandy metallic gold with a complex taupe undertone.

My description: I don’t really like shades like that, I mean they are okay, but not “omgthisissoawsome”. Also it’s really close to one another shade of this collection – MC Sand Dune (see the comparition picture). It’s more yellow than on their official photo, the finish is metallic and it applies very smooth. I apologize for the uneven application, that’s because I applied too much product.

Cairo

Official description: Metallic copper with velvety chocolate undertone.

My description: Lovely name and a lovley color. This shade is similar to MC Reincarnation. Cairo is a little more on the warmer side of a bronzey shade, otherwise it has the same metallic finish like most shades of this collection.

Meow Cosmetics – Egyptian Treasures – Shade Anubis

Anubis

Official description: Rich metallic chocolate (!) with subtle copper undertone.

My description: I adore this shade. Normally I’m not a fan of chocolate shades because they are most washed out or to red toned for me. But this is totally different and really stunning. It’s a vibrant medium brown color with a metallic finish and a lot of depth. It’s more on a golden side of a brown, so it has less red in it in comparison to most chocolate shades. Just amazing because I have nothing similar to it.

Meow Cosmetics – Egyptian Treasures – Shade Treasure

Treasure

Official description: Gilded molten gold with the slightest tinge of olive undertone.

My description: Hmm I’m not a fan of shades like that. Okay the shade is cute, it’s a cooler gold with metallic finish, but for me is it just not enough unique, although it really suits to the collection. Nice but not really my cup of tea. It reminds me (just a little bit) of Fyrinnae’s Polar Bear.

Meow Cosmetics – Egyptian Treasures – Shade Reincarnation

Reincarnation

Official description: Golden metallic copper with cinnamon undertones.

My description: I like this color. And I especially like the name of this shade. Usually I don’t like coppery, orange shades especially not when they have a metallic finish. This one is different. The shade is a cooler type of orange/copper. The sheen is also quite pretty because it’s not so metallic that it will be over the top, but it’s still clearly visible that it’s a metallic shade.
