I took an advantage of Meow Cosmetics Free Shipping sale during Cyber Monday, which happens rarely, and purchase their foundation.
If any of you care to read the ingredients of Mineral Makeups, you would notice the 'usual ingredients' they use
- Titanium Dioxide
- Zinc Oxide
- Iron Oxide
Now, some company does add some additional ingredients like kaolin clay, boron nitride, ultramarines, calcium carbonate, or even bismuth oxychloride *ehm* Bare Escentuals *ehm* that has been recognized as the source of irritations/itchiness in mineral makeup.
Meow here has 3 different formulas for their foundation= Purrr-fect Puss, Pampered Puss, and Flawless Feline.
Puurr-fect Puss has the lightest coverage, whereas Flawless Feline does the heaviest job covering scars & discolorations.
Although I have many red scarring from acne and God knows how heavy I'd prefer my foundation to be, I chose Pampered Puss instead of Flawless Feline for 2 reasons.
One, Pampered Puss has the LEAST ingredients I've ever seen in Mineral Makeup. It only contains of= Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide and Iron Oxide. Yup, only 4. Flawless Feline contains Boron Nitride which I've heard from some people, they feel they're most likely allergic to it.
Second, I like the coverage, although it's medium-heavy, it looks and feels natural without looking cake-y.
So I went ahead and got the Pampered Puss Foundation in Munchkin size (which is perfect size for me) in my shade, Fierce Manx.
The Munchkin jar is comparable to Everyday Mineral's 25 ml Sifter Jar, although the picture seems like EDM is bigger.
NOTE** Concealer runs 1 shade lighter so please keep in mind if you're ordering the concealer, make sure you order 1 shade DARKER than your foundation. The reason I ordered Fierce Korat is because they don't have concealer in Manx breed, and in Korat I'm wearing Naughty (lighter than Korat)
They're also kindly includes other samples of their newest line, Lush Blush in Hugs & Kitties, Felinus Interruptus (what a FOONEY name lol) and Crush.
