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!

    Amazing. I was so close to buying this last week. I swatched it and was like WOAH! It is so pigmented. I think I still may get it. It suits you so nicely :) xx

  2. Julia Arenas says:

    It looks so gorgeous on you! l like. Any way for international buyers to get this?

  3. Mhairi says:

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

  4. Syd says:

    you look absolutely stunning (but I personally think you always do :)) now how do i get this living all the way in california?

  5. Julia Arenas says:

    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?

  6. FrankieBaby says:

    Love the hot pink on you!

  7. La says:

    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.

  8. Amanda says:

    this is fab! I can’t wait for 17th June for when MO comes to Aberdeen!!

  9. Redz24 says:

    OMG that looks brilliant, I think I might need to get my hands on some =).

  10. Redtiger21 says:

    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

  14. Lillian says:

    I got the orange shade and really like it as a product but i wish it were more neon :(
    This looks beautiful on you!

  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. =)

    This colour looks amazing on you :)

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

  19. gio says:

    I love this color, it’s so pretty and pigmented. I think I might have to get it :)

  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?
