Review: Models Own All about the look gift set

After loving the Models Own nail polishes that I got in London, I stumbled upon the Models Own All about the look gift set in the TK Maxx store in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. I normally don't really find something I like at that store, but sometimes, I manage to find something that I completely like and with a nice discounted price. Last time, I found a beautiful pair of winter boots and now, a pretty makeup gift set for only €12.99 (retail price: €36). It is not that common for me to find a makeup giftset, in which I love most of the products. There were many times, I had to put things back, just because I didn't like the shade of many of the lipsticks or eyeshadows. 

Firstly, I really like the sturdy box (it also has a transparent, plastic lid, but I removed it due to the reflection, which doesn't look as good in the picture) and the packaging of the beauty products in the set. The metalic casing can feel a little bit too thin or too light, but it is hard and durable. The products also close off well. It is rare to see a nail polish without a clear bottle, showing the color and texture inside, but the nail polish bottles look really sleek and futuristic.

I was really curious about the nail polishes (the only product from this brand that I had experience with before, they sound amazing based on the names, and they don't need to be unused when I take pictures for my blog), so I tried those first. The Chrome silver looks almost like a mirror on the nails and the Chrome rose was a beautiful rose gold color. Emphasis on "was", because somehow it turned into a pretty warm chocolate brown color with shimmers over time (as shown in the picture, which was taken a long time after buying it). At first, the two nail polishes look a bit matte, but it turns more reflective when it dries.

From the outside, they looked like a somewhat ordinary brown and orange eye polish, but the names sounded promising. It could have ended up badly, but I was pleasantly surprised. The eyeshadow was very pigmented and just by using my fingers, I could apply them on my eyelids without problems. They don't feel heavy and they were very longlasting. I couldn't even wash it off my finger with only water. The Old Gold eyeshadow has a light yellow, gold color with a slight dark shadow as a base. The Copper pot eyeshadow had a warm orange color with mainly gold shimmers.

Models Own L10 Satin red and L11 Satin Pink lipsticks

I really like that the color of the lipstick can be seen at the bottom of the lipstick. It makes it easier to find the right lipstick in your toiletry bag. I knew I would like the red lipstick, but the pink could be the wrong shade for me. From the color on the bottom, I could tell that it is at least a warm pink instead of a cold pink, which makes me look sickly. In the end, I liked them both. The Satin Red lipstick has a beautiful rose red color and the Satin Pink is a warm neon pink color, which could be a bit tricky to pull off, but it looks okay on me. The lipstick didn't feel heavy on the lips and even with my dry lips, it looked moist.
