Meow Cosmetics’ Times Square collection

After so many of Meow’s recent releases’ focus on brighter shades (like Deck Your Halls), it was nice to get an assortment of deeper jeweltones with some lovely neutrals. My one and only complaint about this collection was that End and Indulge are very similar - so similar that during the first round of repotting, I accidentally mixed myself a new eyeshadow.

My least favorites from this collection, for color choices, were Chandelier and Begin. Both are almost spring-ish brights, and seemed a little out of place alongside End, Caviar, Jaded Ways, and Champagne. (And Chandelier is that yellow-green that just doesn’t look all that great on me.) My favorite colors are Silken Robes and Satin Sheets. Silken Robes is an absolutely gorgeous deep-tangerine orange! And Satin Sheets is a lovely barely-cool dusty lilac accent.
