What's inside J. Cat Beauty's Meow & Purr Kits, their celebrity-curated collab
"Affordable" and "quality" are probably our two favorite words to associate with a beauty brand. LA-born J.Cat Beauty fits the bill as it offers excellent formulas and colors for a reasonable price! On top of being cruelty-free, the brand has been drawing praise from beauty gurus like Michelle Phan and Desi Perkins. J.Cat Beauty has already opened branches in Uptown Mall BGC last year as well as in Ayala Malls Vertis North, and they recently opened their Gateway branch with a bang! They introduced their brand ambassadors as the #MakeupKittens, which is composed of Arci Muñoz, KC Del Rosario, Jessica Yang, and Jach Manere!
Aside from doing the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the ambassadors introduced the new Purr and Meow Kits, which were especially curated for each Makeup Kitten. The Purr and Meow Kits contain J. Cat Beauty’s bestsellers, niftily packaged in the cutest kitten pouches!
Arci's Purr Kit (P699) contains three shades of the Lipfinity in Day Club Chaos, Sin City Lights, and Champagne Buzz. Her Meow Kit (P1,799) has three shades of the Liptitude 24/7 Hydrating Lip Stain in Girl Gone Bad, Fantasy Dreamer, and Lipbanger; the Fab Five Eyeshadow Palette in Bronze Creature; and the You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter in Pink Goddess.
Arci used most of the items in her Meow Kit during the makeup demo to showcase how you can use the J. Cat Beauty products. She also shared some of her tried-and-tested tips when applying makeup.
- Try foundation on the neck versus the wrist to avoid having a mask-like effect from choosing the wrong shade.
- Dab and blend your base in an upward motion to help prevent sagging skin.
- For eyeshadow application on the go, just use your ring finger!
- You can also use a bit of mascara on the eyebrows for that extra hold.
- Apply concealer and powder after finishing the eye makeup to remove any traces of eyeshadow fallout.
KC's Purr Kit (P549) contains the Lipfinity in Champagne Buzz and the Triple Crown Baked Shadow in Cherry Fudge Sunday. Her Meow Kit (P1,799) has four shades of Lipfinity in Flirty Talks, Final Fling, Single Mingle Tonight, and Bottoms Up Ladies; the Perfect Duo Brow Pencil in Chestnut, the Sparkling Cream Palette in Suzie; and the E12 Eyelashes.
Jach's Purr Kit (P549) contains the Wonder Lip Paint in Spoke Fancy and the Triple Crown Baked Shadow in Dolce de Leche. Her Meow Kit (P1,799) has three The Big Eye Pencils in Dark Chocolate, Coffee Espresso, and Black Latte; the Perfect Duo Brow Pencil in Dark Brown; two shades of Lipfinity in Tonight My Name Is... and Ca$h Money; and the Sparkling Cream Palette in Maxixe.
Jess's Purr Kit (P549) contains the Lipfinity in Wandering Eyes and the Pout-holic Lipstick in #SMH Shaking My Head. Her Meow Kit (P1,799) has two shades of the Pout-holic Lipstick in #RatedR Rated R and OOTD Outfit of the Day; the Lipfinity in Girls Night Out, the Flying Solo Eyeshadow in Once a Month; the Golden Soleil Baked Bronzer in Coconut Island; and the Long Live Lash Waterproof Mascara in Jet Black.
I got to try out Jess’s Meow Kit and that pouch is the cutest! It has a decent size, too; you can stash your essentials, plus your phone inside! My top three picks from the Kit are the bronzer, the eyeshadow, and the Lipfinity.
While I love the Golden Soleil Baked Bronzer in Coconut Island, I don’t think it works as a bronzer. It functions more as a highlighter and is my current go-to! It applies easily even when using just your fingers, so on-the-go usage is a breeze. Longevity is good, too, as it lasts more than six hours on my dry skin.
The Flying Solo Eyeshadow in Once a Month is a lovely pink that gives an instant K-beauty vibe when added on top of the bronzer. I also use it as an emergency blush, and the little mirror in the packaging comes in handy.
The Lipfinity in Girls Night Out looks scary in the tube but goes on as a chic purple. I like how transfer-proof this is, although you have to be careful when applying as it can get patchy. It lasts around 4-5 hours on me but moves when eating oily food.
