I normally use Meow Cosmetics Pampered Puss in Inquisitive Korat but I was starting to run out and wanted to see how well the Flawless Feline provided coverage, so I ordered a sample of it to try out. No matter how well I prepped my skin (exfoliation, letting moisturizer sink in, using/not using primer, using VERY little, etc.) I could not get this to consistently work well. The coverage is really quite good/heavy, however the problem is that it either ends up looking cakey, accentuates ANY dry skin and migrates when I start to sweat. I knew I looked bad when my husband saw me outside and asked me if I was feeling okay because I looked so much paler than normal; although I ordered the same color as in Pampered Puss, the extra coverage made me look like a ghost. I really like Meow Cosmetics products, but this is a definite no-go for me.
I love this foundation. It looks very natural yet does a good job evening out my skin tone. Compared to the liquid or cream foundations I've worn in the past this feels very light as if I'm not wearing anything. I love how there are so many shades to choose from as I was able to find an exact match.
This powder manages to have an extremely drying effect on the skin. Even with moisturizer you can end up looking scaly.
Meow doesn't accept returns or exchanges which I think is obnoxious. They should at least accept unopened items.
I would not recommend this to anyone with dry or combination skin because it will make you look flaky. I have normal to dry skin and I can't use this HUGE shaker (30g) for anything.
There's some temptation to buy this product because it says full coverage, but it looks like a mask. It's better to just buy a different foundation that's sheerer and build up.
Their website is a mess. The colors don't show up very true to life.
I don't think I am purchasing anything from Meow again.
I actually got a sample of the Flawless Feline and the second I put it on my face looked like a chalkboard. It is VERY HEAVY coverage. I was looking for heavy coverage, but I still want makeup to look somewhat natural on me, not like a mask. I would say maybe if you found the perfect color and had awful skin it might work, but it just wasn't for me.
This product really looked amazing on BUT :( I had some kind of reaction to it around my mouth area. Itched and felt funny around my mouth after I put it on but I just left it for a while and ended up with sore chapping at the courners of my mouth when I took it of. Quite sad looks great on my pale skin, maybe its the boron nitrate? It also gave me a few pimples! I have ordered pamperred instead so hopefully this will be good for me :)
Im giving it a 3 for looks but it doesnt seem to be good for sensitive skin or acne prone skin....
I got a sample of Flawless Feline in Inquisitive Chausie. First off, I have very pale skin, and drugstore makeup is always too dark for me. But this stuff was waaaay too light. Even for a pale redhead like me! Also, this stuff sunk right into my pores. Yuck, not a good look. It also made me itchy. Not pleasant. Also, the coverage was pretty pathetic, even after 2 layers. Luckily, I didn't break out, but it didn't do anything for my skin. Which sucks, because I was really excited and had high hopes for Meow. :(
EDIT: It also made the skin around my eyes turn kind of pink and of course, itch.
HG!!!!!! I've been using Meow's Original flawless Feline for more than 2 years now and ordered my second jar now. Despite of Dior, Chanel and Kanebo this is still the best Foundation for my skin. Why? It covers well, it looks absolutely natural, my skin is still breathing, and it is long lasting and no break-outs, even if I wear it for 24 hours.
Although it was a long journey to my perfect shade (after buying lots of samples) I have found my PERFECT shade, namely Chartreux, which is a golden, peachy and warm tone without screaming yellow, the perfect shade for my mediterranean skintone. It blends perfectly and melts into my skin, because it is so finely milled.
Yet, it is crucial that you use an EXCELLENT moisturizer underneath this MF. I have tried it with a normal cream, and it is just not the same, because it has a drying effect on my combination skin. When I use my Vichy Aqualia Thermal Moisturizer (which has gotten excellent reviews on MUA) it looks as if I put on different make-up. It looks so good!!!!!! On photos, my skin looks flawless!!!!
I`m so glad I got recommended to Meow. My skin is a bit oily and acne-prone so the dry-out effect suits me perfect.
flawless feline is great for layers, if I want my pores to disappear I take a sponge, for just a bit of "feel-better" I take the meow-flat top brush.
It took me several samples to find the best colour, first of all because I started with inquisitive, as I am quite pale, but getting happy with frisky. chaussy is perfect for my greyish- red spotted from scars and beige parts -skin.
The colour discriptions are very helpful.
The packaging survived its way to germany. The munchkin is a perfect size and best of all, the brushes can be swirled in the cap.
The only thing I miss is a take-away version, to put in my bag and feel safe at work ;-)
After sampling literally dozens of mmu, I settled on Flawless Feline in Frisky. I love this mu. It is so finely milled and such a good match, I can do a featherlight swipe with my brush if I feel casual. And if I want a more finished, polished look, I add a layer or two. No need to buff (which always irritated my skin, even with the fluffiest brushes). Finding your exact match can be quite an adventure as there are so many colors and levels, but it's well worth it in the end. And Jen is always there to help.. Not one of the cheapest mmu around but so much cheaper than HE and the amounts are generous. And they have loads of sales. I'm hoping this is a keeper for a long time because I looked so long and hard for it.
I put the amount recommended on and it doesn't cover enough. I put more on to the point where I'm satisfied, and it gets cakey an hour later. I can't use this, though it feels light and great for oil control. Maybe in the dead middle of summer when I can't use most other foundations, and run out of ultraceuticals.
BUT this is a fantastic colour match. and it's not too difficult, Jen from the forum is always spot on.
I have a giant tub left too.. ah well.
