Meow Simple & Guilty Pleasures swatches

I actually haven't seen too many people swatching the Pleasures dual collection from Meow, so I thought I'd show you guys the few that I ordered. Of course, some are up and down instead of left to right... sigh. I swear the little Blogger monsters are like "SHE'S TRYING TO UPLOAD SWATCHES! QUICK, FLIP THE PICTURES! GO GO GO!" >:[ Here are the Simple Pleasures colors I picked out. From left to right: Funky Dance, Rainy Day, Birdsong, Karaoke, Making Love, Morning Latte, Purpose Can I just say that I HATE the phrase 'making love'. It irritates the hell out of me. Just call it sex like adults, geez. Purpose is actually a very peachy color, the swatches of that shade really aren't very color accurate. I LOVE Birdsong and Funky Dance. Here are the Guilty Pleasures ;] From up to down, damn it: Soft Porn, Illegal in 50 States, Margarita, Lace Lingerie, Those Heels One of my kitties was in my room so I got her in the picture :) Illegal in 50 States is the real showstopper, imo. I have no color like it. Here's a look I did the other day using Birdsong, Purpose, Soft Porn, and Morning Latte. For some reason that last picture makes me think of Nea. :) Have you ordered anything from this collection? What do you think of the shades? I think this probably is my favorite Meow collection, tied with Lost Rainforest.

  6. I got credit for the name 'making love' though I think I suggested it as 'having sex' on the Meow forums :P

  9. @Cydonian: It's such a pretty color, I love it!

    @MartianDelights: Yes, you must buy it >:D

    @The Peach: I'm thinking there is a similar Fyrinnae color, but I don't have it. I'm surprised more people aren't talking about this one.

    @Hendrix: aww, thank you :D

    @Lucy: thanks! It's such a pretty purple, I bet I'll end up using it quite a bit.

    @Kim: Noooo! A no buy? Those are for crazy people!

    @Phyrra: Oh thank god. lol

    @KittenMittens: I think I need to cut myself off from Meow for a while, I've been ordering sooo much from them lately.

    @Julissa: Do it! Review! I vote review!

  10. KITTY! My kitty helped me transfer my baggie samples into clamshells. He turned out a bit sparkly after awhile!

  11. This is gorgeous! Why haven't I checked Meow in a while? (For the same reason I haven't checked tons of awesome indie makeup places - there are so many of them, I can barely keep up.) I will definitely have to get some (or maybe all) of these. :D

    I know what you mean about "making love." My biggest irritation with the True Blood books, is Charlaine Harris calls it a "manhood." Really?! If you can't bring yourself to call it anything other than that, maybe just don't say it outright and let us fill in the blanks. "Manhood" just makes me laugh too hard. (Now that I think about it, I don't remember her referring to ladybits, either, unless - oh god - I think she used "down there" once or twice. Which is just as bad.) It's just a weird mix of "I'm writing romance-novel sex scenes, but can only use prudish words." Excuse me, I meant, of course, "romance-novel love-making scenes." Ahem.

  14. @Kira: I love kitty slash makeup pictures! :D

    @kathyeffingjacobs: All I have to say is, he can show me his manhood anytime, yagetwhatimsayin.

    @Jenna: I'm excited to hear what you think!

    @Julissa: I have sooo much stuff planned for my next paycheck too, even though I've spent WAY too much on beauty products with this one.

  15. Oh man, I love the look of Purpose, Margarita and Lace Lingerie.

    And fuuuuck, you have no idea how much 'making love' as a phrase annoys me. >=| I would just buy the product and scribble the name out with sharpie and write 'fucking' instead. And then refer to it as that on my blog foreverrrrrrrr
