Models Own – Neon Pink Lip & Face Paint

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 26 - 2010

Woah… neon lip & face paint.

I wasn’t quite sure what to do with this when it popped through my letterbox courtesy of Models Own last week.

Once I had re-read the pot and realised that I could use it on my lips, I set straight to work!

I really didn’t expect very much from this product… languishing in the knowledge that in general, multi-use cosmetics are pretty cruddy, I was expecting to have a total fail of a product on my hands.

Not so.

This is smoooooooth and lends itself beautifully to a lip product.  I’m not gonna tell you if this works well on your face ‘cos I haven’t got a clue… I’m not a face painter and I have nothing to compare it to.  It’s one hell of a lip paint though.

Bright and true to it’s neon credentials, it applies more like a cream than a paint.  I think that’s what I was most impressed with… I really expected something quite dry and difficult to work with and got the opposite.

Combined with a flick of black liquid liner and not much else, Models Own Neon Pink Lip & Face Paint is a winner.  It dries matte on my lips and does leave them a touch drier which to be fair, I expected.  As with any matte lip product I’d make sure your lips were well exfoliated and possibly combine this with a slick of balm before applying.

I love how completley weightless the product feels on my lips, one thin layer gives great colour payoff and when it fades, it leaves a naturally bitten stain.

Priced at a bargainous £5, if only the other colours were more lip friendly!

    Wow, that really suits you! Is it worth trying it as a cream blush or is it not blendable enough?

    Charlotte, I just came from the Model’s own website. The adding to cart part seems tricky. How come even after I’ve selected a color, when I click add to cart it won’t do it?

    That colour looks great on you! It has a bit of a Sophie Ellis Bextor vibe to it – very retro in both colour and texture. I love it.

    Ooh that’s nice! The other colours are ridiculous from a makeup point of view, but I guess they fit their descriptions! The only other colour I’d try would be the neon peach. I do like the look of their loose powder eyeshadows, and the prices are amazing!

    Statement lips! I love it. I actually think this suits you. and with eyeliner and lashings of mascara, you can’t go wrong! You should wear shades like this more often. Compliments your skin tone. xx

  15. Ooo these look intriguing! I bet these would be awesome on the cheeks as blush and I am currently infatuated with all things cream blush. =)

  18. You could try it as a blush? Unless it’s not easy to blend or the texture isn’t right.

  20. I tried it as a blush… I got clown cheeks, it’s a bit too pinky pink for me. Probably work better on someone with warmer toned skin maybe?
