I’m not sure if it’s just me, but once we hit this time of year, I want pretty much everything to sparkle. I’ve got red sparkly nails as we speak, and I’m all about a little extra glitter. So, When Models Own’s stunning new Holochrome Eyeshadow Palette and lipgloss
Thearrived, I was overjoyed!
The eyeshadow palette is one of the best looking pieces of makeup I’ve seen in a while. I just adore the green and purple sheen, it’s an absolute joy to look at, and it feels super seasonal to use.
Inside is just as pretty – eight metallic shades, with a matte brown and matte black to layer and define the eyes. The colours are a great mix of neutrals which are seriously Christmas-party appropriate. From blues and purples to a selection of rich chocolates, the variation you can achieve with the palette is seriously impressive!
Applied directly to the eyelid, the shimmer shades give a sheer wash of coloured sparkle, but layered on top of the matte shades, they come alive. The deep base shades mean than the duo chrome nature of some of the shadows looks absolutely magical – exactly what you want in the winter!
I also seriously appreciate the double ended brush that Models Own have included with the palette. The bristles are wonderfully soft, and really pack on the colour. It’s such an improvement from the foam-tipped things that even designer palettes are guilty of including!
Then, as if the eyeshadow palette wasn’t gorgeous enough, I had to get my hands on one of the stunning glosses. Laser Lilac is pretty must the opposite of my regular, nude coloured glosses. Even though I do tend to favour mauve-y shades, this one does look quite purple in the tube.
On the lips though, it’s absolutely gorgeous, and incredibly wearable! With a rich, balm-like consistency, which isn’t in the least bit sticky, it leaves lips with a wash of sheer, slightly lavender tinged hue. The blue micro glitter makes teeth look ultra white, and I’m obsessed with the colour. It’s such a fun, and surprisingly subtle way to change up my look.
Models Own Holochrome Eyeshadow Palette is priced at £19.99 and Lipgloss is priced at £6.99 and they’re both available here.
