As promised, I have the Meow Cosmetics Joys of Summer collection review and swatches for you. I think you’ll love the colors! With a whopping 24 colors, Meow’s Joys of Summer collection is gigantic! This collection is customer inspired and customer named. Some shadows are velvety or creamy, others are iridescent, and some are metallic. All are lovely.

As expected, this is a very picture heavy post. Lots of swatches :) These are all on Meow’s Light Primer.

Please remember, color is subjective. These are my interpretations of the colors. I use daylight bulbs to take true to color photos of the eyeshadows. I make sure the colors on my hand match the photos, which match my computer monitor. Different monitors can be calibrated in different ways, so I check the colors on my cell phone, a Mac laptop, as well as my machine. I’ve done the best I can to ensure color clarity.
