Models Own Neon

Are you brave or do you always play it safe with your daily makeup? I love natural shades on the face and these are normally my go-to shades. Eyes have been bold and dressed up on the catwalks for this spring/summer.

I have been lucky enough to try out some Neon makeup products and love them! A pop of colour of the face is so refreshing rather than browns and neutral tones.

This is the first time trying Models Own makeup and must admit I had my own pre conceptions about the look of the packaging but I actually take it all back. I love the transparent lipstick barrel. I am amazed at the price of these products all items mentioned only cost £5 each which I think personally is very easy on the purse. I dare YOU all to pick a colour you wouldn't normally go for and see what you think.

I was very impressed with the consistency of the lipgloss, I'm rather fussy with my lipglosses and can't stand 'Tacky' glosses which feel like glue on your lips! This gloss feels so light on the lips but gives a pretty glossy sheen. I would normally be put off my such vibrant shades but don't be fooled by the colours they are not as intense once on the lips. The lipstick is a creamy texture and also a creamy finish on the lips which is a nice change to any shimmer.

Powder Eyeshadow Delph Blue
Bright Turquoise
Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil Blue Azure
Eyeliner Neon Pencil

The pencils feel very soft and easy to apply on the eye, non dragging and very pigmented. They last for a while which is great if you want to use these for a night out. My only bug bear is about the powder eyeshadows, the don't have any safety cap which for a butter fingers like can be messy! Apart from that the shadows are very pigmented and a pleasure to use.

Here is a photo showing the swatches of all the products together, the blues and the coral tones work so well together I think personally.

When I saw this collection it reminded me of one of my favourite tops which I got last year...

There is also a collection of 6 Neon polishes, which I'm sure will be a big hit for summer this year! Even if they are a little bright for your fingers these would be lovely for your tootsies! The shades look so nice I couldn't pick a favourite as I like them all! Has anyone tried them?

Models Own is available online and from Boots, Asos and River Island.


  1. aww beautiful honey! agree with ya about the corals & blues going together. Not sure how it would look on my skin tone though! I've got the gloss in Red Hot? Like this one, looks kinda scary but actually creates a nice red sheen to the lips :)

    Love Aysh xoxo
