Tags from the story


  • I just ordered all the shadows yesterday, with some samples of the blush and glow powder. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I was completely obsessed with Egypt when I was younger, so these were a must-have.. I'm happy I found your review, now I'm even more excited to get these!

  • Hi Tally,
    I always apply my eye shadows with a base. I can't stand not to. Meow's eye shadows, on my skin, will melt off otherwise. Reincarnation is warm, but I think it's sort of a… clear? It's light, so I can use it on the lid, or inner 1/2 of lid and get good results, without looking too weird. I think it's the copper in it. Most coppers work well with my eyes, like Urban Decay's Lucky, works well with my eyes. It just has to be balanced.

  • Yeah, I bet they would apply better over a base. But I am spoiled by aromaleigh! Those metallics don't require a base for a smooth application, haha! (not to say that all the meow releases require a base for a vibrant application, just some). Reincarnation? Isn't that a warm color for you? I can't wear coppers at all!

  • Hi Tally,
    I haven't had a problem with application, but I only apply using a base. These were all swatched with Aromaleigh eye shadow primer, and I've applied the colors over Too Faced Shadow Insurance. So I'm not sure what tips to offer ๐Ÿ™
    Uhm, normally when I have problems with an eye shadow I try my primer, then a creamier base like a nyx jumbo eye pencil.

    Nile, Miw, Anubis, Reincarnation and Ra are the colors that I think stand out for me. I love all the blushes. I think Royal and Tut are gorgeous but a bit too warm/coppery for me to wear very often. Pharaoh is pretty amazing.
    The names are beautiful, I wish I loved gold more ๐Ÿ™‚

  • So I just got all the colors! The stand-outs for me are Miw, Artifact, and Nile (Nile especially if I had a different skin tone). The burgundy/reds disappointed me in their formulation with the exception of Jackal. Specifically Tutankhamun and Royal didn't apply smoothly or stick well (to an unprimed hand). I'll just stick to AL Torment and Torrid! I am not sure about Ra. It is a great concept, but I am having a hard time getting the pigments to all mix well together. The different color components have a tendancy to separate at least when I am swatching it on my hand. I may love the color, I will just have to see how the application goes on my lid with a primer and a proper brush. Any tips on using Ra? Also, love Obelisk, Pharoah, Treasure, Temple and Hieroglyph. Aren't the names just great! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Hi Suzieduck,
    I'll at least be trying them all ๐Ÿ™‚ I used to think I looked terrible in warm colors but I'm finding I can wear some shades just fine. Nile and Miw are definitely gorgeous!!!

  • Such a funtabulous haul. i'm loving all of them but i am partial to Nile, Scarab, Miw, Obelisk, Sand dune. the rest of the colors are a bit warm for me to look good in but still be fun to wear.

  • Hi Nea,
    You're quite welcome for the swatches! And thank you for the compliment! I'm really glad you found two colors you liked. I'm actually blown away by how flattering Nefertiti looks on me, wearing it today.

  • Thank you so much for swatches! And I'm glad I waited for this… I found 2 interesting pigments: Nile and Miw. Blushes look very nice too!

    You're the best ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Hi Justine,
    Glad you like the review! I think that the Egyptian Treasures collection is very similar to the Elemental Lustres, and both are beautiful. I'll be able to tell more once I get them on the lids.

    Hi Saila,
    I know that I'll find colors I like that I didn't necessarily think were 'me' once I get them on my lids, too. So I know what you mean!

  • Ooh, I've been waiting for your review! Thanks for the swatches! How do Meow's Egyptian Treasures compare to Aromaleigh's Elemental Lustres and Bete Noires?

  • Hi Apriltini,
    I used to think I couldn't wear warm colors at all, but I'm learning that I can pull off some. I'm going to definitely give these a try and see how they turn out ๐Ÿ™‚
    And yes, I love that line of brushes!

  • I received my samples today, too. Just got a few, and so far I really like Bast, and kinda like Jackal. The rest are too warm or golden for me, but I couldn't resist trying them anyway. Oooo, I see two of the brown faux brushes there. I've fallen in love with those, and am slowly collecting them. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Haven't commented in a while *gag*school*gag*. I like all the names, they're really creative.

    Your vid is cool too, It would definately be really helpful to someone who wanted to know about the new collection thingy.
