My Favorites of the collection:
Firework, Gypsy, Tattooed Lady, A La Ga Zam, Cirque Du Meow and Oddity

Firework has beautiful sparkles, like a fireworks display and it’s easily one of the prettiest pinks I’ve seen in a very long time.

Cirque du Meow is a gorgeous yellow-green with soft shimmer, reminiscent of Aromaleigh’s Estranged.

A La Ga Zam is a very pretty yellow chartreuse.

Oddity is a light aqua with green iridescence.

Tattooed Lady is an intense red-based purple with violet sparks.

Gypsy is a cornflower blue with violet and aqua sparks.

Tunnel of Love is a light blue with golden sheen.

Freak Show is a grass green with an aqua sheen.

Carny is a light spring green.

Side Show is a light purple, leaning lavender.

Midnight Madness is a deep navy blue with an aqua sheen.

Fire Eater is a deeper orange than Fortune Teller, and Fortune Teller seems to have a golden sheen.

      Those are some lovely colors! I actually thought they’d be more sheer than that. I may have to look into purchasing a few!

      • Phyrra

        I’m really happy with how they look :) They’re on primer, of course.

      I have Tattooed Lady, Oddity, and Fortune Teller samples on the way. I was hoping for a bit more of the duochrome action but maybe it’s more visible in person? Fortune Teller looks much more orange than I would have thought though! Oddity and Tattooed Lady are pretty. I wish I’d ordered Firework now, that really is a nice pink! It’s funny, 5 out of 13 colours are definitely blue, but there’s only one pink and one purple!

      • Phyrra

        I was really surprised by how orange fortune teller was, too.

      What pretty shades! Love the blues and the greens!

        Thanks Pammy!

      Fireworks is gorgeous and all the greens are too nice, expecially cirque du meow! I want them! Thanks for these swatches!

      Those colors are gorgeous! I’m really loving Firework, Cirque du Meow, and Tattooed Lady. I may have to order myself a few!

      • Phyrra

        They go away at the end of July, don’t forget :)

      I love tattooed lady, it looks so rich and pigmented, purples are always a win. Al La Ga Zam is also really nice, but I’d have to think up a way to wear it without going overkill because it looks so good.

      • Phyrra

        Yeah Tattooed Lady is so pretty!

    • http://www.prettyindayton.com styrch

      I think Gypsy and Tattooed Lady are calling me. :) Maybe Firework too!

      I always love Meow so much, I’m starting to think I should not purchase samples but just get full sizes of the colors I want. Hmmm.

      • Phyrra

        It’s so hard to decide!

      VERY pretty collection! I am loving the top row.period.

    • http://fiercenerditude.blogspot.com/ Vijaya

      That pink, OMG!

      • Phyrra

        I know!

    • http://www.glassofwin.com Rachael

      I am really loving Firework (which I may have to purchase) and Tattooed Lady :)

      • Phyrra

        They do look so pretty!

    • http://in-the-pink-fog.blogspot.com Charlotte Sparkle

      Lovely swatches, so many nice colours to choose from.

      • Phyrra

        I agree, charlotte!

      I think I’ll be giving this one a pass. I have similar colors already from Black Rose Minerals and Linnaeus Cosmetics- only Gypsy looks like something I’d be interested in but unless I can order it during free shipping I’ll do without it. I loved their other collections, especially the Lost Rainforest colors, and had high hopes for this one. (I think I just have too much makeup.)

      • Phyrra

        I know I definitely feel like I sometimes have too much makeup, so I hear you!

    • http://www.annamaxblog.blogspot.com Annamax

      I really want Gypsy because that’s my bunny rabbit’s name! :D

      • Phyrra

        Aww how cute!

    • http://www.sirenasparklestar.com/ Sirena Sparklestar

      OMG. I need/want almost all of those! Thank you for swatching them!

      • Phyrra

        You’re welcome Sirena!

    • http://forthefading.net Carla

      Ooh, pretty. Firework, Fire Eater, and Fortune Teller are totally my sort of thing (though I suspect I may have Hi-Fi shades that are very similar). And A-La-Ga-Zam looks really nice. :D

      • Phyrra

        Firework is a real gem!

    • http://roxcat.net/blog/ roxcat

      They look very tempting! I think I’ll pick up samples of Gypsy, Tattoed Lady, Oddity and Firework. And maybe some more.. =)

      • Phyrra

        I definitely vote for Tattoed Lady and Firework!

    • kawaiiferreto

      I don’t know why but none of these are really calling to me. They’re all pretty, but I think I have enough similar things that these just feel pretty meh to me. Admittedly, blue, purple, pink, and orange are all things that don’t usually work on me. (Give me neutrals!!!) I’ll probably end up picking up samples of the two greens, but other than that I can live without. First time I’ve said that about a Meow collection in a while!!

      • Phyrra

        Yeah normally they do include some neutrals.

    • http://sakuradesu.com Sakura

      Really pretty colours! purple and the second row are lovely!

      • Phyrra

        I agree, Sakura!

      I love the Fireeater and Fortune Teller. I think they will look really great with dark eyes.

      • Phyrra

        Oooh, I bet Fortune Teller definitely will!

    • http://silhouettescreams.blogspot.com SilhouetteScreams

      Oh my gosh, those greens and that pink <3 *steals*

      • Phyrra

        Hehe you will rock these greens!
