Asylum by Meow Cosmetics – Review and Swatches

Today I’ve got Meow’s Asylum Collection for you! Meow describes it as an extremely reflective color palette without it being sparkly. It has a luminous metallic glow. I really feel like the colors are all gleaming.

Meow Asylum Collection

All colors are swatched on bare skin with no primer.

I should mention that this collection makes me think of Emilie Autumn, the Victorian hysteria (probably because I recently saw the movie Hysteria), and Sucker Punch. For the record, I did not like the movie Sucker Punch, but I did like the music.

      These are great! I love shimmer but hate glitter, I like night terrors, lunatic, wack shack, and sedative the most.

        thecakepie I like Night Terrors too! I almost fee like I need it because I suffer from them.
