It’s that time of year! 😀
No matter the enormity of the selections out there for foundation – whether color, or formulation, mass market, or prestige – I only ever use Meow. I’m a cat lover, tis true (the fact may indeed be responsible for me finding the Company many years ago). . .but I stick with Meow not because I love the names (marketing can sway a lady easily – you know who you are!)
No, they are my must-have because they straight up deliver. Their mineral foundations contain VERY little – something that tends to be like an elusive butterfly these days. An ingredient list that’s short, to the point, and pronounceable?! SIGN ME UP!
The formulas last too – as an athlete and Martial Artist it’s fair to say I’ve put these to the test. Often. And not just any old paces – full on Jiu-Jitsu, ballroom competitions, leg day, HIIT on occasion…those minerals work hard!
With all that activity, why wear any at all? Wouldn’t my pores be clogged?! I happily – and emphatically – say “NOPE!”
These minerals are skin-loving – it’s almost like doubling up (let’s be honest, with me, quadrupling up!) on skincare. My skin manages to breathe and stay even with the added benefit – thanks to zinc oxide and titanium oxide – of natural sun defense, and protection from daily aggressors. These aren’t full of fancy pants ingredients but they don’t have to be – they give me an extra layer of armor, so to speak, over all of my lotions and potions (with which I am equally as discerning!) It’s nice not to have to peel back a label just to read the rest of the ingredient list.
That aside, the color selection is ASTOUNDING – WELL beyond what most mass or prestige companies will ever offer. Meow accounts for countless undertones (86 shades with coordinating concealers – read that number again!) I know! What?!?!
Another major point? The products are non-comedogenic – for someone who’s active, that goes a long way.
Did I mention you also get a TON of minerals for your money (the larger containers are enormous! – don’t count on finding the same generosity at a Sephora or Ulta!)
Anyway…to my Hallows point!
…Meow is currently offering Halloween Foundations – a nice departure from greasy, pore-clogging face paints of old – so definitely check them out if you have sensitive skin. . .or you don’t want to coat yourself in something ultra-unnatural!
The colors are designed to be opaque, and layerable, so you can achieve whatever level of zombified or goulish that you are aiming for…without clogging your beautiful peau. I mean what’s the point of haunting around if you’re dreading post-Halloween breakouts!? Talk about freaky!
