Models Own Chrome eye shadow palette

We have seen a lot of new launches recently which have a metallic or chrome pay off. A trend we thought we had left in the 1980's seems to be back with a vengeance!

Models Own recently delivered a collection of molten metal nail polishes and to compliment this trend you can also now have a liquid metal eye look. Housed in a rose gold mirrored compact with sponge applicator.

  The palette contains six cream eye shadows which have a smooth texture and high sheen pigment.
 Each shade provides a shimmer reflection and good colour pay off. Easy to apply and easy to blend over the eye. Could also be used as a highlighter on the skin if required.
 A sheer wash is all you need for a high impact of colour however you can layer and build the shade to add to the tone depth.
 Use too much product and it will settle and crease but used sparingly and blended you can achieve good longevity. The great thing about this product is if you wear a wash of colour over the lid it's super easy to run your finger over the cream to re-blend and smooth out any creasing. Great if you are a fan of a grunge style eye.

These look beautiful worn on their own however they also make an excellent base for your powder eye shadow. Used underneath a powder they will give a metallic undertone to any eye shadow worn on top.
 We are not a fan of the sponge applicator and would prefer to use our ring finger to apply to the lid if you don't have a good synthetic brush to use.

 A good mixture of silvers through to grey and gold through to bronze.

 Shades will suit all skin tones however it has a stronger impact and looks particularly beautiful on a deeper skin tone.

 Available from July 1st 2015 from www.modelsownit.com for a bargain £5.99.



  1. This has some beautiful shades!

  2. This is so affordable and being cream eyeshadows pigments can be a bit questionable but the swatches show that these are so pigmented. xx


  3. If I'm being honest they look a little cheap in the pan (kind of like the NYX cream glitter palettes) but they swatched beautifully and have such fine metallic shimmer!!

  4. I really don't get on with eye products like this. They tend to crease as soon as I put them on. Maybe trying it with a good shadow primer would do the trick. The pay off on the swatches are great!


  5. This looks beautiful! I don't often use cream shadows but I definitely want to try this out - plus I'm a huge fan of grungey, messy eye makeup! It's also a bargain at £5.99, judging by the swatches!

  6. This is definitely different than a lot of things on the market, but still interesting!


  7. The colours look nice, although I wouldn't wear models own makeup
