Recently I was sent a lovely box of Models Own makeup, which completely opened my eyes to the brand which I usually tend to associate only with nail products; I know they’ve had some make-up releases, but I didn’t realise they had such a vast and comprehensive collection – it’s absolutely huge and well worth checking out. The products I received included a great selection that gave me a great overview of the range; they’re all pretty decent but there were definitely some standouts.
The base products included the Sculpt & Glow Contouring Bronzing Powder (£8.99 here – link) which looks incredibly orange in the picture, but it’s actually more of a warm bronze shade – I’m not sure how well it would work as a contour shade, especially if you’re particularly cool-toned like me, but it’s a decent product available in two shades. The Sculpt & Glow Liquid Highlighter (£7.99 here – link) is a great concept but the shade I was sent is too dark for me to work with (being very pale!) however, I have had a little look at the other shades (there are four in total) and the Brilliance shade looks especially lovely. I really would recommend having a look at the base products page as there are so many gorgeous products, such as pretty blush shades and a huge variety of highlighters.
A good example of these is the Sculpt & Glow Highpoint Highlighter Powder (£9.99 here – link) which is one of those gorgeous products that just adds light and life to the face. It’s available in two shades – Natural Light (pictured) which is a lot warmer than the cool-toned Strobe Light. I would’ve gravitated towards Strobe Light, but actually, Natural Light is the perfect product for adding a hint of sunkissed glow.
Next are the eyes and lips products, starting with the beautiful Celestial Enchanted Palette, which is not really my sort of colour combination (as pretty as it is) but there are absolutely loads of different palettes on the Models Own site, ranging from extremely neutral to bright and colourful, all of which are £14.99 each here – link.
A real standout product for me is the Brow Tattoo Kit, which contains two eyebrow liquids housed in a sponge, plus a fantastic, double-ended applicator. I’ll review this in more detail soon, but you can find it here – link – for £8.99.
There’s also the Matte Eye Base Eyeshadow Primer (£5.99 here – link) and the Matte Liquid Lipstick (£7.99 here – link) both of which I haven’t had a chance to try yet, but I will be adding the Eye Base to my routine soon.
Finally, the Pro-Foundation Stick (£9.99 here – link) is something I’ll be reviewing in more detail for my Foundation Files series, but it’s worth mentioning that it’s available in a decent 15 shades and reviews are very positive, so I’ll aim to share my thoughts ASAP. Much like the rest of the make-up in this post, the Pro-Foundation Stick totally opened my eyes to how many products are in the range, as there really are loads of different concealers and foundation types, so definitely something for everyone.
