Models Own

A belated Happy New Year and welcome to all my new readers, thanks to Brooke who featured my little blog in her weekly New Blogs on the Block

So here we are, new year, new start. After a fun and relaxing Christmas break and a killer of a cold that is still flooring me, I'm back with renewed enthusiasm. I'm going to *try* to post more often this year, I won't manage once a day, but 2 or 3 times a week should be possible, right?!

I'm gonna kick off with my Models Own collection

I discovered Models Own last May through a comment on MUA which said they were good for grey cremes and were sold on ASOS . I was going through a creme phase (my first ever) so I checked them out on ASOS and then found their website

It's a funky website and they have an pretty extensive range of colours and some interesting looking glitters. No accurate colour swatches on the site though so it was a bit of a gamble on colours.

I couldn't find any reviews either so wasn't sure what I'd be getting, finish wise. I found a discount code on the web so ended up getting 9 polishes for less than £34 which seemed like a bargain - if they were any good!

First up is Slate Green, a slightly dusky mid green creme

This is 2 coats IIRC. Application was pretty good and the colour is unique for my collection although not quite as dusky as I'd like.

Models Own is a UK brand of makeup, you can buy products from their site (no international shipping I'm afraid), ASOS (who do offer intl shipping I believe) and in store at some branches of River Island.

  1. Oh wow - stunning colour. Oh and just thought I'd add - ASOS ship most things overseas but not nail polish :-( I have to get it shipped to my boyfriend's mother in England who sends it to me in England.

  2. ah yes the EEB! That's a shame about the intl shipping - I'll update the post.
