Meow Cosmetics Blush Swatches

Happy Monday, everyone! A little while ago I posted about my first Meow Cosmetics order that was full to the brim with amazing samples. (You can read the original post here). As I mentioned previously, Meow Cosmetics is an independent mineral makeup company that offers high-quality and cruelty-free makeup in an amazingly vast selection of colours. 

After my last post about the brand, I asked what swatches you'd most like to see (I purchased some mineral foundation, eye shadow, and blush samples), and I got a few requests for the blushes, so here they are!

L-R: Infatuation, Cherry Bomb, Coral Reefer, Delusions, Harlot

I swatched each of the blushes quite heavily on my forearm (about a NC15 skin tone), so you can see the true hue of each. They are all quite sheer in formulation, but can definitely be built up to create more dramatic colour!

As you can see, Infatuation is a warm coral peach, Cherry Bomb is a deeper reddish pinky-coral, Coral Reefer is similar in tone to Infatuation, but is a bit more intense and vibrant. Delusions is the palest shade of the group, a soft pinky peach. Finally, Harlot lies somewhere in between Cherry Bomb and Coral Reefer and is a vivid pinky coral. Can you tell that I'm a sucker for warm pinky/peach/coral blushes? :)

Here are a couple more swatch photos:

And here is a photo of each of the blushes in the sample baggie that they came in:

I tried to make these photos and swatches as true-to-colour as possible. Hopefully you find them helpful! I've also had the chance to test out a couple of the blushes so far- here is a photo of me wearing Infatuation (here) and here is post when I wore Delusions (here). They've been a pleasure to use so far- can't wait to test drive the rest!

If you're interested in checking out the full line of Meow Cosmetics blushes (there are sooo many shades!), you can see them here.
