Hey everyone! Today's review is coming to you from the fabulous feline world of Meow Cosmetics!
I was actually given the chance to try this foundation due to a makeup swap I had done recently with an international friend of mine (Hi Annika!) She had informed me that the shade she picked out was too light for her, and that I should give it a try! Well, it happened to be a nearly perfect match!
The shade I have is 1- Sleek Siamese. Sleek referring to the actual shade (0-lightest 6-darkest) and Siamese referring to the neutral undertone. Munchkin refers to the size of the jar. Meow sells $1 samples, Munchkin sizes (varies in price) and massive Full Size jars that also vary in price. If I were purchasing/repurchasing for myself, I'd probably go for some of the cooler undertones, Sphynx, Chausie, or maybe even try Himalayan. I really love that they sell samples, because it's already hard enough to shop for foundations online, it's even harder when they provide such a massive shade range!
There are also three levels of coverage available. Purr-fect Puss (Light/Medium), Pampered Puss (Medium Layerable), and the one I have, Flawless Feline (Heavy Coverage). For a mineral foundation, which I usually don't gravitate towards (I just prefer pressed products overall), this foundation has excellent coverage. I myself love using it to set liquid foundation for an absolutely flawless finish, or I can use it on it's own over moisturizer (like I did in my review video!)

I don't find it to give me a solid, blank, matte finish, but it's definitely not dewy, or even a satin finish. Closer to matte than any other foundation finish really. I like to apply this with a flat-top brush, or a kabuki brush, you can see my application in my video review here!:
Overall, I am REALLY loving this mineral foundation. I've never been one to enjoy loose powders much, and I can't compare to Bare Minerals, as I haven't tried it in years. But I can say that I WILL be repurchasing this foundation from Meow Cosmetics. And maybe getting a few samples of other shades to find the kitten that really suits me best! I definitely recommend getting samples of the different shades/levels of coverage you think you'd like and giving them a shot! You're sure to find a shade that's just purrrfect for you!
