New Favorites from MODEL'S OWN!

Hi there, my darlings! One of the most exciting launches, at least for me personally, was the launch of Model's Own at Ulta across the US earlier this year. As I had mentioned in my first post announcing the launch HERE, I have tried and loved quite a few of their nail polishes and was beyond excited to find out that they made color cosmetics too! As the months have passed and I've had the opportunity to try more from their cosmetic line, I found myself falling in love with so many products! So, today, I'm pleased to share three new favorites from Model's Own that have become staples in my makeup bag!

BARELY THERE Eyeshadow Palette ($17.99):

It's time for a nude awakening with this barely there eyeshadow palette. From weekdays to weekends, this is all you need to transform the everyday. With the brush, apply dusky pinks, soft nudes and creamy browns for a truly natural look.

Now, as regular readers of my blog know, I'm not usually a fan of nudes, much preferring bolder, brighter shades even in eyeshadows. But, it's been a killer summer, with the temperatures reaching highs that I cannot handle. Especially while I'm situated in a humid, tropical climate!

So, makeup has been minimal. A little bit of eyeliner and some lipstick. Forget foundations and even BB cream or powder on most days. But, I do like a little definition around the eyes on special nights out and this palette has a nice mix of both matte and shimmery shades. Of course, the shimmers are my favorite!

Moreover, I really love the smooth, soft texture of these shadows in both the matte and shimmer versions. And the best part? I'm happy to report minimal fallout with ANY of the shades!

I-DEFINER Kohl Pencil Eyeliner in Black Onyx ($7.99):

Get dramatic with this intense kohl liner for eyes that truly make an impact. Glide onto eyelids for a chic finish.

VELVET LUXESTICK in Deep Berry ($8.99):

Get lippy with this luxe velvet lipstick with true staying power. Apply with a precision lip brush for a pout that will truly seal the deal.

When it comes to eyeliners, I inevitably reach for Indian brands because I want my liners blacker than a Dementor's soul (let's hear it for a Harry Potter reference!). That is the case even when I'm nowhere near India, somehow having them sent overseas just so my eyes can be lined in pitch black. But, I have to say I am SO impressed by the I-Definer in Black Onyx. It's SO black, pitch black, jet black, perfect black! It not only glides on beautifully but the waterproof formula DOES NOT budge even on the hottest, most humid days. Believe me, I know! This will be the best 8 bucks you'll spend on an eyeliner, trust me!

As for the Luxestick, you  already know how I feel even before I say anything else. Just LOOK at it! The perfect, juiciest, vampiest berry shade for a girl obsessed with berry lippes! Super pigmented, the formula is dubbed as a "velvet" finish and rightfully so. It has the pigmentation and nearly the lasting power of a matte but with a much more comfortable, wearable feel. Best of both worlds, if you ask me! And I LOVE the silver, mirrored bullet with the magnetic lock cap. SO cool and immensely useful if you toss things in your purse before frenziedly running out the door. Like yours truly, sigh! I definitely need to pick up a few more shades from this range ASAP!

So there you have it, my darlings! You can pick up any of my favorites exclusively in stores or on Ulta's website HERE. Shipping within the US is free over $25 at Ulta!

  1. That lipstick is a beautiful shade for you. I looked at the e/s palette in the store but was worried it wouldn't be pigmented enough. I love that Ulta is so close to me but I wish they'd had a tester for their shadows.

  2. I need to try this brand, I think I'm the only beauty blogger who has not tried any products from them

  3. I am quite impressed by their products, and am testing a lot of them right now. That lipstick is absolutely gorgeous, and absolutely perfect for the fall!

  4. Everything looks so good- I love the look of the lipstick!
