Models Own New Makeup Range / review & first impressions

Models Own have recently brought out a brand new Makeup Range which is just beautiful for summer -so many lovely bright shades, bold pigments and a vast range of colours so today I’m going to preview it and give you my first impressions on some of these products.


First let’s take a look at the packaging – it’s bright and colourful, kind of ombre design with lovely pastel shades, really creative and fun. It makes me so happy just looking at the packaging 🙂 The collection itself is pretty fab, I like the white and silver packaging of the products, it makes them so much more instagramable and nice to display on your dressing table.

I received a little selection of products and I want to share with you some of my favourite starting with the Sweet Dreams Eyeshadow palette* (£14.99), the packaging is super cute, it has a lot of bright and pastel shades and I was pretty impressed after swatching them on my hand as they are very soft and blendible and pretty pigmented too! Some of the shades are wearable, some are quite bold but I like experimenting with colour especially with Summer around the corner. I’ve got Glastonbury Festival coming up in a few weeks and this palette would be perfect for that. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you’re interested to see what makeup I take to Glastonbury, my festival beauty essentials and daily vlogging. I’m looking forward to try something new that’s a little bit out of my comfort zone.

These are really pigmented, which is amazing but you do have to be careful not to make a mess, although I’m sure you’re not as messy as me when it comes to applying/swatching liquid lip products hehe 😉

You could also mix these and experiment making different shades which is really cool. I believe there are three different formulas – glossy, matte and metallic I really like the purple metallic I think it would be perfect for my festival look.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThey have a selection of Luxestick Lipsticks* I have the shade 19 Plush Peony which is really pigmented and I quite like a bold hot pink, I’d describe the finish as semi-matte. It comes in a nice squire silver packaging with a magnetic closure. I’m looking forward to seeing the full range of shades in the collection.

I have some of their face products – the Sculpt & Glow Liquid Highlighter* (£9.99) Sculpt & Glow Matte Bronzer* (£8.99) Rock ‘n’ Rosy Blusher stick (£6.99) The highlighter is lovely I have the shade 02 Rose Gold, I like to mix it with my foundation for a dewy luminous finish and also dab some on top of my cheekbones, nose, cupids bow and brow bone for a subtle highlight. The bronzer is a little bit dark for me at the moment I have 02 Deep Tan, but when I self tan it should be a better match. I like its texture, it’s matte finish and quite a neutral tone. The Blusher Stick is perfect for on-the-go, you don’t need a brush, just dab it on and blend with your fingers. I have a lovely shade – Peach Pop


I also like the Now Brow Eyebrow Pencil and Blender* (£7.99) which is double ended – the pencil side is retractable and you can use it to fill in any gaps or just to shape and define, on the other end there is a sponge style applicator, which has brow powder to give your brows a nice colour boost. Great product and super easy to use.

There’s a selection of I-Definer Kohl Pencil Eyeliners* (£5.99) in lots of different shades as well as I-Definer Kajal Kohl Liners* (£7.99) both creamy and pigmented, I don’t really use eyeliners all that much these days but I do like these and I’m curious to see what other colours they have in the collection.


So what do you think of the new Models Own makeup range? What’s your favourite product?

Have a fab day!
