I liked Lash Exact and Volume Exact but there were also things that I didn't like about both products. I absolutely LOVE Lash Blast!!!!! First of all kudos to CoverGirl for offering another mascara in BROWN. In my opinion every mascara should come in brown because not everyone can or wants to wear BLACK! Lash Blast is definitely my HG. I get a natural (but not so natural that my eyes disappear) look with only one coat. I can get any lash look that I want with this mascara because I can apply as many (or as few) coats as I want to. This is the best mascara that I have tried in YEARS. I have been looking for a new HG mascara (after my HG mascara got discontinued) for a LONG time. I am so thrilled that my search is finally over!!!!!! Thank you CoverGirl for Lash Blast!
This is one of the best mineral blushes that I have ever used. It is a very soft and creamy feeling powder and it applies like a dream. It is very long lasting. When I look in the mirror after a very long day I still have blush on. Most of the mineral blushes that I have tried are long gone by then. I own 6 colors. They are Peddle Pink, Hissy Fit, Flirt, Tickled Pink, What's New Pussycat?, and Tease. They are ALL gorgeous pinks. I definitely recommend this blush!:) EDITED TO ADD: I am still using and loving Meow Cosmetics blush. My favorites are The Scream(from the Masterpiece collection), Cadillac, and Cotton Candy(both from the Pink Inc. collection).
Powder -Meow Cosmetics - Flawless Feline Mineral Foundation

This is another fabulous foundation from Meow Cosmetics! I usually use it as a concealer because I get the results I need from Pampered Puss. This definitely has a permanent place in my makeup arsenal!
I really like this mascara. It lengthens and seperates my lashes very well. It is one of the few mascaras that doesn't smudge on me at all (I only use the regular formula). It comes in a nice variety of colors including the PERFECT brown (my favorite). The only downside is that it doesn't really volumize the lashes much and I prefer a mascara that volumizes.
Foundations -Meow Cosmetics - Pampered Puss Mineral Foundation
so_gemini 1/7/2007 12:42:00 PM
This foundation is wonderful. It goes on very light but you can layer on as many layers as you need to. It NEVER looks cakey or overdone. I have had days where I put on a LOT of layers and I was positive that my makeup was going to look too heavy and it DIDN'T!:) There are tons of color options and there are more coming in the future. The staying power is awesome and using one of their primer powders makes it even better. I love the fact that after a little while the foundation melts into my skin and looks even MORE natural. I have never had that with any other mineral foundation. The Purfect Puss Foundation is just as great but I prefer to use a foundation with zinc oxide in it because my skin can be fussy. There is also a new fuller coverage formula called Flawless Feline. I have it (and love it) but have only used it for concealing because I get such great results with the Pampered Puss. I VERY highly recommend Meow Cosmetics Mineral Foundation!UPDATE: I am still using (and loving) this wonderful foundation every day! UPDATE 04/01/07: The more I use this foundation the more I LOVE IT! I gave my other MMU foundation away because I don't want to use any other foundation.:) EDITED 05/04/08 TO ADD: I am still using and loving this foundation. It is absolutely THE BEST Mineral foundation that I have ever used ( I have tried quite a few). I have been getting even better results with it since I purchased their new synthetic flat top brush to apply my foundation.:)
I absolutely LOVE this lipbalm. A lot of the mineral lippies that I've tried dry my lips out but this doesn't at all it is very moisturizing. The colors are nice and subtle. My favorites are Hellebore and Freesia.
Loose Powders -Meow Cosmetics - Top Cat Finish Setting Powder
so_gemini 11/23/2006 11:11:00 AM
I love this finishing powder. It is sheer and has no color (which I prefer) and leaves a very nice finish without looking the least bit dry and powdery. I have not had any problems with it drying out my skin or breaking me out.
Primer/ Corrector -Meow Cosmetics - Premier Puss Primer Combo
so_gemini 11/23/2006 10:46:00 AM
I recently purchased a sample (have since ordered a full size) of this new primer from Meow Cosmetics and yet again I am blown away. I have been using this on my cheeks and forehead and it makes my minerals stay in place without drying out my skin and it has a wonderful finish. It does not look dry and powdery at all! I am very happy because Meow's primers are the first mineral primers that I have ever tried that I like (change that to LOVE). This is another keeper!
Primer/ Corrector -Meow Cosmetics - Premier Puss Primer Oily
so_gemini 11/23/2006 10:37:00 AM
I recently bought a sample (have since ordered a full size) of this new primer from Meow Cosmetics and I have to say that I am blown away! I have tried several mineral primers and none of them have worked for me. I use this on my eyelids and my nose and chin and it controls the oil without drying my skin out or making me break out and does not have a dry powdery finish. This one is a definite keeper! EDITED TO ADD: I have found that this also works as a Finishing Powder. During the hot summer months I need a Finishing powder with a little more mattifying power than the Top Cat provides and this does the job beautifully!:)
This is the best mineral blush that I have used and I've tried quite a few. The colors are GORGEOUS the finish is wonderful. My favorite is Lotus.
I absolutely love this mineral foundation. It definitely has a permanent place in my makeup arsenal! It has a light but easily buildable coverage. The finish is matte but it is not a dull dry matte. The color selection is phenominal. I can actually find shades pale enough for me (I am a level 0). I think that most anyone could find a match and if you have trouble they are more than willing to help. The customer service is top notch!:)
I have been buying this mascara off and on for a couple of years now and I used it for a sealant over other mascaras for most of that time. I recently invested in a heated eyelash curler and figured out a different way to apply this and I have to say that I really like it! My lashes look really great and the curl stays in them all day because of the heated eyelash curler. I will definitely be wearing this one on its own a lot more. I'm happy because I have the best of both worlds because on it's own I get a great natural look and over other mascaras I get a more dramatic look and both stay looking just as perfect as when I applied them! The price is also not as bad as a person might think because it really does last longer than three months because of the difference in the formula compared to regular mascara. I do think that the packaging could be improved because sometimes the top comes apart if you accidently close the tube too tightly. I will definitely keep purchasing this mascara because it is one of the only mascaras that I have ever found that does stay put all day and it is the only mascara that I have found with such incredible staying power that removes so easily!
Mascara -Shu Uemura - Mascara Basic [DISCONTINUED]
so_gemini 3/6/2004 8:57:00 AM
This is a really great mascara. I can put a zillion coats on and it absolutely will not clump! I love it! The only cons are the fact that it is more difficult to remove than a lot of mascaras and the $27.00 price tag (yikes!)is quite expensive for something that has to be tossed after three months. I will more than likely repurchase it at times anyway because of the nonclump factor and it is also one of very few mascaras that I have tried that stay looking perfect all day. UPDATE: I will not be repurchasing this mascara because some ingrediant in it makes my eyes itch like crazy!
Mascara -Maybelline - Lash by Lash Mascara [DISCONTINUED]
so_gemini 3/4/2004 12:27:00 PM
I used to use this mascara in both the regular and waterproof versions. It gave a very nice natural look and absolutely never clumped. I gave it up because I decided that I wanted more drama. I have since decided that I like different looks on different days so it is too bad that this one was discontinued.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Remarkable Washable Waterproof Mascara
so_gemini 3/4/2004 12:17:00 PM
I tried this several years ago and yes it does wash off really easily. That is because there is nothing waterproof about it! It is just a regular mascara. What a rip-off! Covergirl should give up on making mascara because I have tried every single one of their mascaras and they are all just terrible. I am not crazy about Maybelline mascaras but I would buy theirs any day over this because they do actually have some decent mascaras!
