Models Own Review...

So recently Models Own had a 50% off sale when they hit 250k likes on Facebook so I took advantage a little and ordered a few bits:

This is what I ordered (along with something for my friend for her birthday which I won't post for obvious reasons). First of all, I was so pleased with how fast my order came, it only took about 3 days and delivery was only around £3-£4, also the packaging is so pretty and all my items were securely wrapped which makes the delivery price worth every penny!☺

Cerise Shine £5
 So Models Own have just very recently launched their 'HyperGel' range, which I can't help but compare it to the Barry M Gelly nail varnishes, the colours are all very similar to Barry M and even the formula is similar, however I love the packaging & the brush better than Barry M, I was stuck for choice on what colour to buy so I went for this very girly pink 'Cerise Shine' as I don't own many pink colours so I ventured out my comfort zone a little. Overall I'm really please with this nail varnish, it ticks all the boxes in terms of high shine, long lasting and fast drying, I highly recommend! ☺

Obsidian £5
I actually only bought 2 nail varnishes for myself which is strange as I have a little addiction but all the colours I wanted to try were sold out (grrr) so secondly I got this black glitter varnish in 'Obsidian' from the Velvet Goth range, the bottle itself is so pretty, the lid is actually a velvet texture which really makes me love this even more. Unlike some glitter varnishes you don't need to put too many coats on for it to look amazing, I also found it easier to remove compare to other glitters I've tried. 

Eye Shadow Shading Brush £4
Next, I bought this Eye Shadow Shading Brush, I've been after a good shading brush for a while and when I came across this in the sale I had to buy it! This brush is perfect for blending eye shadow into your crease, its the perfect size and perfect texture, I don't feel the need to go on about this too much, if you're after a good eye brush, just go buy this one, you can't go wrong for £4!☺

Make Up Blending Sponges £8
So after seeing the beauty blender and all sponges in this shape being so raved about I had to try some! I didn't want to splurge on an original beauty blender as there are so many dupes just as good (apparently) when I found these I didn't hesitate buying them. However, I think they're a major disappointment! I've use these to blend foundation & concealer, but I just find that they totally absorb all your make up rather than blending it out they steal it all! I really don't see the hype about these at all, which is a shame because they look so pretty in your make up bag too!

Hope you enjoyed this post and that it was somewhat helpful to you!
