I’ve watched a lot of YouTubers and read a lot of bloggers talk about the Models Own brand. If I’m not mistaken this was a brand that a lot of UK beauty bloggers were talking about before the makeup brand became available at ULTA stores.
Of course, I immediately added this brand to my “must check out” list. I was recently given the opportunity to test out their A.M. Kit Daytime Eyes & Cheeks Palette ($17.99, ULTA). It’s an all-in-one palette that saves face.
The packaging is really nice and slim, making it a travel-friendly palette. When you open it up, there’s a nice size mirror, and two applicators to apply the eyeshadow and blush. Personally, I never because they always felt cheap and rough to use. These brushes are actually really soft. The blush brush is too flat to apply the blush but since it’s small it could take a little longer. I would use it more for traveling when I need to pack as light as possible.
The eyeshadows are a nice neutral palette. You’ve got four matte shadows and two shimmers. The matte shadows are so buttery soft. I’m not noticing any kick back, but there was some minor fall out. The lighter shades are not as pigmented as the others, but what I love about these shadows is that they’re easy to work with. Which means you can pack on the color to get the pigmentation you want without any trouble. They blend easily, and with a primer, the shadows last.
The blush is a beautiful peachy pink shade with a little hint of shimmer. It reminds me of a more wearable version of NARS Orgasm blush. It has nice pigmentation to it, and I didn’t have any trouble blending it out. I prefer lesser pigmented blush because I’d rather build the color up than have to make sure I’m using a lighter hand. Adding more makeup is easier than removing it.
This is a great palette for anyone getting into makeup for the first time or when you’re on a tighter budget. The quality is there, they’re easy to work with, and you get an eyeshadow brush to get you started.
