I am not a dancer but I was doing a jig when I received four Models Own products. I hadn’t even realized that the brand was going to be readily available at Ulta. The thrill continued when I made a trip to Ulta and saw the beautiful line there for me to purchase as well.
Models Own is a UK line that had me drooling over their nail polishes years ago. Trying to get my hands on one was a real effort but I was finally able to swap with someone to send it my way and I wasn’t disappointed. Now though we can get our hands on all their amazing products – all 650 eye, face, and lip products can be ours. Their goal is to put fun and creativity back into cosmetics. As they say BRAVERY IN BEAUTY.
The very first product I needed to use was Models Own Sculpt & Glow Highlighter Powder in Golden Sand. I can’t resist highlighters and I prayed that this wouldn’t be shimmery. I danced for sure once I applied this beautiful light gold powder for no sparkles were to be found. Just pure beautiful color that glowed and glowed. I can wear this day or night because it’s subtle enough that I’m not a disco ball nor do I look greasy.
Regularly priced at $11.99 it’s on sale now for $8.99 and you can use a $3.50 coupon on Models Own!! This also comes in Peach Pearl which looks stunning.
Models Own LIX Matte Liquid Lipstick comes in 6 brave and bright shades. The pigmentation on Coral Fresh is absolutely amazing. Your lips are covered with this gorgeous shade in one coat. It practically applies itself. It’s not a lipstick that I can apply without a mirror since the color has intensity and will stain. I wore it this week and had Chinese food and it didn’t stand up to the soup but it left a pretty stain behind. As all mattes go this is drying so make sure your lips are exfoliated and balmed for lasting beauty.
Besides Coral Fresh you need to look into Raspberry Mojito, Berry Cool, Candy Cane, Strawberry Mojito, and Eucalyptus Pink. Each of these have a light minty taste but no stinging is involved. On sale now for $5.99 you absolutely won’t believe that they aren’t a higher end luxury lip product.
I not only danced when I used Models Own I-Definer Eyeliner Duo in Midnight but I did a somersault which for someone in my shape is actually impossible! But this has everything I could possibly want in an eyeliner. The two sided liner has a smooth as can be roll up pencil on one end and a perfect felt liquid liner on the other. I’m a fool for liquid liner but I’m very picky about the tip of them. Models Own did it right. The tip is firm and glides on.
It’s also available in Umber (which I ordered!!) and Azure. I hope they add a purple in the future. On sale for $7.49 right now makes it a steal. If you like wearing a cat eye then you absolutely need this pencil/liquid for a perfect look.
As an eyeshadow maven I was thrilled to see the array in Ulta. On sale right now it’s the perfect time to add to your palette wardrobe. Look at my pretty Models Own Colour Chrome Eyeshadow Palette.
A palette that I think was made especially for me. If you like cream eyeshadow then you are going to love this!! With 10 gorgeous shades I can play to my hearts content. I could almost be on Dancing With The Stars since I got so excited to use this.
Platinum is a bright white with sparkles, the color isn’t intense. A good way to use this is to pat it over other shadows with your fingertip.
Electrum is a khaki shade that can be applied lightly or can be build up to a truer khaki.
Rose Gold is a stunning rose gold, not orange like my picture.
Emerald is the color of the turquoise sea.
Superior is a beautiful cool toned blue.
Pure Gold is exactly that, a bright yellow gold.
Nickel is my favorite, it’s more of a bronze than a copper. It looks beautiful paired with Pure Gold.
Iron Oxide is a light silver with sparkles.
Pewter is a charcoal shade with a navy undertone that I love.
Slicked is a sparkly light gray. It’s similar to Platinum in the amount of sparkle in it.
My personal favorites are Rose Gold, Superior, Pure Gold, Nickel, and Pewter. Platinum and Slicked are too sheer and sparkly for me personally.
Since this is a cream palette it may or may not crease on you. I always use an eyeshadow primer which prevents it from creasing on me. Using a light sheer powder shade over the cream can also help with creasing. While cream shadows can be a little harder to blend, they are so easy for me to use so I love them.
Models Own is a line you want to discover. These are quality cosmetics that will enhance your looks and your attitude. Feel Brave, Be Beautiful! — Marcia
