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.
I'm surprised at the reviews that say this is cakey/heavy/drying etc. But then in my experience with the Pamperred Puss formula, no two shades go on the same. So this review is for Flawless Feline in Frisky Siamese!
I love Frisky Siamese, it's glowy and wonderful and doesn't cake at all on my combination skin that's prone to flaking. I use a little bit of Meow's primer powder underneath and it applies smoothly with my EDM flat top brush. I actually apply two light layers because I find one isn't enough coverage.
My only complaint is that it separates a little around the sides of my nose when I get the oilies after a few hours, but then all makeup tends to do that on me :( Oh PS I'm an NC20 on the neutral side.
If you want heavy coverage here it is. If you want a natural look this ain't it. Very chalky especially in daylight and not at all flattering for pictures. I gave it an average rating because it is a line that has other options that are good bargains and they do offer a wide selection of colors for women of every shade.
I bought this because I like heavy coverage... But this stuff just makes me look horrible, no matter how much or how little I have on. I've also tried applying it with dry application and wet application. But it makes me look patchy and gross, plus it just melts right off my face for some reason... No good. :( Will not be buying again.
