Models Own are usually a brand most of us associate with nail polish, but did you know they also have an impressive range of affordable makeup too? I think this part of the brand often gets a bit overlooked as they have so many beautiful shades of polish to choose from, but it's definitely worth a look next time you're near a Models Own stockist.
The Chrome Eyeshadow palette* is the latest edition to their makeup line up and features six metallic finish cream shadows, all encased in on-trend rose gold packaging. The shadows have a molten metal finish, giving a metallic, shimmery look to the lids.
As with most cream textured shadows, you'll benefit from wearing a primer underneath these to help keep them from creasing and to improve staying power. That said, these last pretty well on their own - you'd easily get about 6 hours out of them before needing to do a touch up, making them perfect for a night out.
For the best pigmentation, apply these with either your fingers, or using the sponge applicator included within the set. Normally I suggest throwing away these sponges, but it actually works well at packing on the pigment to the lids, although if you want to do a lot of blending, you'll need a good brush to help with that.
The Chrome Eyeshadow Palette costs just £5.99, making it an absolute bargain in my eyes and it's a great dupe for Illamasqua's Liquid Metals at just a fraction of the cost. You can find it at Superdrug and at Models Own Bottleshops now.
