Trying out A New Formula

I've never tried Meow's Pampered Puss formula till now, and I think I'm liking it. It's Meow's medium coverage but very buildable formula (Purrrfect Puss is the light coverage and Flawless Feline the heaviest). I love it because it's not as sheer as Purrrfect Puss (as nice as it feels on the skin, Purrrfect Puss fades on me even before the day ends). Pampered Puss still feels like I have nothing on but has a lot better staying power than Purrrfect Puss. That said, I ordered Pampered Puss in Naughty and Frisky Manx in the munchkin jars. I have yet to hear from Meow about my Flawless Feline Manx issue (see previous entry), so I ordered another Flawless Feline Naughty Manx to compare.

Hello, just came across your blog doing a search on Meow Cosmetics. I have just ordered some samples from them and have never used mineral makeup before, I wondered if you could tell me which type of brush you used for their foundation? I have read that depending on the base ingredients you could either use a kabuki or a powder brush.
Thanks for you help!

Hi magdalene! I just read your comment, sorry for the late reply! I use Lumiere's kabuki brush. Meow has a very light feel to it, and has light to medium coverage, so I use a kabuki brush. It's not as dense as Monave so I can liberally use Meow. The best technique would be light, buildable layers. Hope that helps!

Thanks for your reply. I am also about to order from Monave and was thinking about ordering their flat top brush. Do you have any experience with this brush? I am holding off on a kabuki because I have heard it can be quite heavy in its application and I would rather build up the layers lightly. Do you have any tips for applying mineral makeup? Do you have to buff? I have read conflicting advice about buffing. Thanks for your help! (And great blog!)

Monave's flat top is perfect for their foundation. I like the fact that it has a small, compact head. I like the small head because with Monave you only need very little or else it'd be cakey, so the head kind of limits the minerals you get to apply. The density is also good because it really applies the minerals very evenly. If you're buying from Monave, I do suggest getting the flat top. I don't use it with other foundations, though, only Monave. HTH and thank you! =)
