Meow Cosmetics’ Abductee 2013

The Abductee shade has changed slightly each year that the Alien Abduction comes back into the online store…except in 2013. I don't have the color to compare, so I can't be 100% sure…but I think that Abductee 2013 is the same as Abductee 2012. The color looks similar to the product images I find online; and in Halloween 2013, the owner was recovering from illness and so several other collections were delayed significantly.

Abductee 2013 is a rust-orange with a metallic finish. This shade could almost fit in with the “harvest” theme - it falls somewhere between Lunation and Galactic, from the Harvest Moon collection. The color payoff is good, though dry application can be a bit less cooperative. I really have to stipple this one on; sweeping gives me patchy coverage. For the curious, here is <a href=“” target=“_blank”>Abductee 2010 compared with Abductee 2011</a> (first and second years the collection was available) and here's the <a href=“” target=“_blank”>official artwork of the 2012 collection</a> lineup, showing Abductee 2012 as a rust-orange metallic.
