Meow Cosmetics’ Neptune’s Grotto collection

A range of blues, blue-greens, green-blues, and blue-greys - mostly shimmers, a few duochromes, and one “satin” / near-matte. Initially I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about a collection of all blues and blue-greens. I was also concerned about too many of the colors being ultra-sheer. Thankfully, that wasn’t really an issue! There were some less opaque colors - about four of them. The rest were not “so pale you’ve got to pack it on to see anything” - which happens with some blue or green eyeshadows from many different manufacturers.
