BEST OF 2017: MODEL'S OWN Celestial collection

Hi there, my darlings! Fri...YAY! After weeks of stress, I've finally had a good week...a really good week! Touchwood. And as I mentioned earlier this week, it's a special, celebratory week for me and I guess I was due for a bit of luck and sunshine. So, why not end the week with a bang?! Today, I'll be sharing with you all another collection from 2017 that totally won my heart AND is a really perfect set of products when you're in a celebratory mood--Model's Own Celestial collection, which you're supposed to find at Ulta, although it's currently unavailable online. Anyways, take a peek and if you fall in love, like I have, check your local store!

CELESTIAL ENCHANTED Eyeshadow Palette ($17.99):

Be the queen of hearts with this Celestial Enchanted eyeshadow palette. From ladylike hues to fairytale blooms, live happily ever after.

(shades in the palette from left to right): 

Purity, Magical, Graceful, Entice, Allure, Charming 
With Love, Doves, Angelic, Divine

From the moment I got this baby, I knew it would become one of my favorites. Now, I usually don't really do light or pastel shades, instead preferring to go bold...with the exception of glittery, shimmery or metallic shades, which is why this one made it on my Favorite Palettes list of 2017 HERE.

Admittedly, glitter can be a pain to work with but I found these shades to be quite easy to apply with very little, if any, fallout. I LOVE the smooth, velvety texture of the shadows themselves and I found that blending them out while layering them on was a breeze. The swatches below show a couple of swipes of each shade on my bare arm--no primer needed! Plus, they show up on my skin tone, and flatteringly so, which is a huge win for me!

Do keep in mind that they are not the most pigmented shades out there but if you're like me and enjoy adding a bit of shimmer and shine to your makeup looks, you'll love this palette. I know I do!

FROM BOTTOM RIGHT TO TOP LEFT: Purity, Magical, Graceful, Entice, Allure, Charming, With Love, Doves, Angelic, Divine

CELESTIAL CHROME LIP TOPPER in Stardust over MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK in Coral Fresh ($7.99 each):

Create an otherworldy pout with the Celestial Chrome Lip Topper. Applied over your favourite matte lip colour, this longwear formula is loaded with reflective pigment for a multidimensional finish.

Whether on the Saint Antonio strip or the fields of Glastonbury this Celestial Face Glitter Kit has your festival look covered. Create unique designs with ease with the Celestial face stencils.

I've loved every single shade of Matte Liquid Lipstick I have tried from Model's Own and Coral Fresh is no different. It's a bright, happy coral pink that's very flattering even on my tan skin tone and the matte texture is pigmented while not at all overly-drying.

I thought it would be the perfect base for the light iridescence of Stardust. Stardust DOES NOT show up on my skin tone on its own--I mean, you would have to shine a flashlight on it and whatnot. But over Coral Fresh, the iridescence further brightens up the pink tones in Coral Fresh for a result that I was really feeling! Try it over your favorite matte shade--the possibilities are endless.

CELESTIAL LIP GLITTER KIT in Cerise Star and FACE GLITTER KIT in Mars/Pluto ($7.99 and $10.99):

Take your festival glam to another stratosphere with the Celestial Lip Glitter Kit. Worn alone or over your favourite lip colour, this high impact glitter lip look is your festival beauty essential.

Ah, glitter! As much as I love it, glitter on my face?! Yeah, not so much! I do love the glitters included in the Face kit for two reasons--I love the type of glitters included (large and fine combined) and who says I have to be restricted to applying them to my face?! You can check out my spurt of creativity in using them on white henna on my Instagram HERE and I have plans to use them for nail art whenever I can.

The Lip Glitter kit is another matter entirely. I CAN and do intend to work with this. Remember, a little goes a long way and you can just pat a little on your fave matte liquid lipstick before it dries completely. I'm looking forward to trying Cerise Star over a dark, rich purple--how gorgeous would that be?!

The Face Glitter kit also includes these adorable but incredibly difficult to work with stencils. They do not adhere to your skin and you would need some tape or some help to use them., yeah, not ideal if you live alone or swatch in the wee hours of the night. They ARE cute though!

So there you have it, my darlings! Once they become available again, you can pick up any of these beauties exclusively in stores or on Ulta's website HERE. Shipping within the US is free over $25 at Ulta!

  1. Your swatches are really great. This is a fun collection.

  2. I'm a little wary of MO coz I bought a pretty cream shadow palette this summer, and the shades faded within minutes of application even over eye primer. Your swatches look very pretty, but more like highlighter than shadows

  3. Those eyeshadows look WAY better on you than they do in the pan!

  4. The whole collection definitely has a fairy tale vibe, I think it's fun and very on-trend!

  5. Time to get playful with those pretties. A makeup look perhaps?

  6. Fun collection! I like the soft shades in the eyeshadow palette and the lipstick with that gloss over it is everything!

  7. The palette is super pretty and looks totally magical!
