I recently had the opportunity to review Meow Cosmetic’s latest release, the Lost Rainforst Collection. I’ve been very excited to see Meow release new collections because of the new formulation method that they’ve been using. They released a few teaser shades at Christmas with this new formula, and I loved the colors, so I’ve been waiting to see more done in this style. The Caribbean Escape collection and now the Lost Rainforest collection contain colors with this formula.

Thank you so much for swatches Phyrra! These colors look amazing I'll look the video later but what do you think about canna and Heliconia blushes?
wow at the colors! and cool you're doing videos now. this is the first one i've watched. you sound so soft-spoken i like how you showed the swatches and shared which ones you liked a lot…
I watched the video and it was very helpful!
I really like your voice
These are really nice colors! Poison dart frog, macaw and pitcher plant really grab my attention. I love bright colors
Hi Nea!I'm glad you like I LOVE the blushes!I'm wearing Heliconia today and I'll be posting a look with it.
Hi Ida,Glad you enjoyed!
Hi Chrissy,Those are 3 vibrant colors! I'm wearing Poison Dart Frog today in fact.
Those are lovely! Spider Monkey and Boa caught my eye immediately, followed closely by Piranha and Nabau. Please do an eye look using these shades when you have nothing better to do than indulge me…ha-ha!
Hi Mary!I'm wearing Nabau right now I'll probably try Boa tomorrow.So far I know I need a full size of Nabau, Chameleon, Heliconia and Canna.
Woo, those are amazing! What do you think of how they compare to Meow's carribean collection? And how do Meow's recent two collections compare to Aromaleigh's past two collections (hot in the city and l'orchidee)? I know this is a very long questions, sorry about this! I really need to decide which ones to get since money is a little tight right now! Thank you!

I would love to see you pair mayantu with macaw I really need to pick these up soon!
Hi Jen!It might be fun to put Mayantu oon my lid and then sort of halo Macaw around
My faves from this collection are Mayantu and Boa. I love duochromes, and Mayantu is like Aromaleigh's Arabesque, but with a smokey blue green base. Usually I can't wear colors like this (AL Serenade for example) but this worked! Also, Boa is neat in that it has a gold shimmer over a charcoal base as in the description if applied lightly, but when applied over a primer, it becomes more of a deep olive color. I usually can't wear olives with my warm skin tone, but this one works! Yay! Thanks for the swatches!
Hi Tally,Yes, Mayantu is Gorgeous, too.Boa was really impressive to me because it blends well with multiple colors and looks good on its own. It even looks good with pinks!
I wasn't even interested in Boa but after reading this, I just noticed that I ordered full size of it I got also Mantis and Piranha in full size and of course a lot of samples!
Hi Nea!Boa is great for mixing or layering or wearing on its own.Btw, did you see the swatches of Canna and Heliconia in the video? They're both gorgeous.
I watched the video again and both look so nice! And the new Taboo-blushes sound very interesting too… I ordered sample of almost everything, but then it's so hard to choose what to order
These swatches really helped me, thank you so much Phyrra!
My order just arrived and I got full sizes of Mantis, piranha and Boa. Those are just perfect pigments! I also LOVE Canna blush, it's so pretty
I already swatched Taboo blushes but can't decide what to order full size… Too many pretty ones
Hi Nea,I'm so glad that the video and swatches helped you! I know what you mean about the Taboo blushes, so many are so gorgeous!
