About me: NW13 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
This is a GREAT finishing powder. I love using it as a sheer highlighter. It diffuses light, similar to the Guerlain Meteorites. I need to continue experimenting in order to compare the two fully, but this seems like an amazing substitute for the price.
This highlighting powder is DIVINE. You NEED this.
It is the type of product that gives you that ethereal, movie star glow. There is no shimmer, just a very refined GLOW. I use it daily with a gigantic fluffy brush as a finishing powder, using a smaller and denser brush for cheekbones if I want to really make it obvious. Otherwise it is just that magic finishing touch that gets you compliments and makes you feel beautiful. There is no powdery finish or whitish cast. It truly is wonderful and at a very affordable price point. I'll never try another highlighter or finishing powder again - Meow really does have the best of the mineral world.

I wrote to Meow Cosmetics customer service specifying what I need (full coverage mineral foundation which doesn't make my look dry & dusty/settle in my wrinkles & with the right amount of glow to make me look amazing but subtly so). The helpful consultant Elynor wrote back with some great shade recommendations and said that she herself wears the medium coverage blend (Pampered Puss) with Crystalline Cat Glow Powder on top. I prefer the full coverage blend (Flawless Feline) which is one of the best mineral foundations I've tried but what really shoves the whole she-bang over the finish line & into the # 1 spot is the Cat Glow Powder. I've heard people say that a product has 'blurred' their pores and I never knew what they meant - until now. Truly amazing. If I was tremendously rich I'd buy a sky-writer to etch 'Meow Cosmetics Crystalline Cat Glow Powder - HG! HG! HG! HG! HG! HG! HG!' across the far horizons and circle the world a million times. Well probably not. But you get the picture. Bloody good stuff.
I ordered a sample of this powder while buying eyeshadow (MM makes great eyeshadows, very high in pigment!). I did not like this finishing powder. It went on very thick, even after tapping off the excess powder, and did not spread well, leaving dark patches of shimmer powder on some parts of my face. It made my face a very unattractive fake shimmery and unevenly colored. It sat in my fine lines and highlighted my wrinkles and imperfections. I had to remove all of my foundation and re-do it without this stuff because it made me look awful. If you want to buy this, perhaps buy the $1 sample first to make sure you don't look like a pale, sparkly vampire from Twilight after you put it on.
