Have a beautiful day with Models Own A.M. Kit

Good morning America (and everyplace else), it’s time to get up and face the day and Models Own is here to help. Their A.M. KIT DAYTIME EYES & CHEEK PALETTE is a great one to make you look and feel your best.

This is a palette that I’d say is more on the cool side of the spectrum but it’s also a neutral palette. It contains 6 eyeshadows and 1 blush. All the shades work so well together making it an easy one to create many looks.

I think of this as the palette I could wear early in the morning for work, yet brighten up for a night out. It’s also a palette I’d keep in a drawer at work since you never know when a great opportunity may arise and you want to improve your looks. (ignore the blush in the picture above since my camera just won’t capture the beauty of it)

What’s wonderful about this palette is that there isn’t a drop of glitter in site. There are 3 matte shades and 3 slightly metallic shadows but no glitter will appear on your eyes.

As you may know, I’m all about eyeshadows, so of course this review is mostly about the eyeshadows!

  1. Creamy beige that has a teeny amount of sparkle in the pan but I don’t see it on my eyes. This is a great lid or brow shade and works with every color in this palette.
  2. A peachy pink matte that is so flattering on. There’s never the appearance of rabbit eyes even though this has a good amount of pink to it. Even though I’m saying it’s a matte there’s no dryness to it.
  3. Metallic shade that is a chameleon. In some lights I see a lot of lavender, in some it looks taupe, and it can even look pink. It changes with the colors that accompany it on my eyes. While it’s a metallic it’s not that shiny once on.
  4. This dark brown applies lighter than it appears. It’s also a metallic in the pan but more of a satin once on your lid. Because I like a dark defining shade on my eyes this is the color that already has a slight dip in it. For me it pulls everything together.
  5. A matte very light nude shade. This highlights my browbone although it works well on the lid and as a light transition shadow.
  6. Another chameleon, this light taupe can look purple or more brown. I’ve worn #3, 5, and 6 together with #4 as a liner and that way it’s more purple. But if I wear #1, 6, and 5 together it all looks more brown.

These shadows need a primer as the pigmentation is lighter than a lot of shadows. Whatever you use to intensify and hold shadow should work well. A good budget brand is Milani Eyeshadow Primer or I like TF Shadow Insurance. I also love this palette with a liquid base like ELF Aqua Beauty Molten Liquid Eyeshadow or Inglot Aquastic Cream Eyeshadow.

Now about the blush – it’s fabulous and I don’t have a good picture of it. It’s a beautiful pinky peach with loads of pigment. And surprisingly the brush in the palette works really well with it. I never find a brush in a palette like this that I like but this one actually is decent even though I prefer a real blush brush.

The blush is much softer and pinker than this picture. It’s a great shade for the palette and for life.

This is one of Models Own better palettes. The shadows are nicely pigmented though not darkly pigmented. They aren’t powdery and I don’t get much fallout from the shadows. They last well all day for me with zero or minimal touchup for night but they absolutely need an eyeshadow primer to show up. The blush is terrific and one I’d love with or without the rest of the palette. It’s very long lasting and very flattering on light to medium skin.

This is an Ulta exclusive and Models Own is often on sale there so keep your eye out for this for yourself or as a gift for a teen just getting into makeup.  —  Marcia

  1. I am so impressed by Models Own! This is a beautiful palette, and #4 is just my kind of e/s shade!

  2. It looks like a good everyday palette. After my disaster with their cream shadows, I am a little skittish. But I should give the powder shadows a try.

  3. I had a bad experience with one of their shadow palettes, so I’m a bit fun shy but it’s good to hear this one performed well for you!

  4. I dont know anything about this brand when it comes to makeup.
