Models Own Chrome Eyeshadow Palette : A Review

If I remember correctly, the first time I saw the Models Own Chrome Eyeshadow Palette was on Instagram.  I pretty much decided I wanted it then and there, which is a daily occurance in the world of Joyful Things.  It took me a little while to track it down, but track it down I did.  Models Own is only stocked in Superdrug stores, and online (here and here).  My local Superdrug didn’t have it, so eventually I purchased it online.  I have had a chance to have a little play, and thought I would share my opinion here with you.

Although the actual palette is much smaller than I expected, it is excellent quality for the price (£5.99). It is good and solid, and closes with a satisfying click.  The six cool toned cream shadows range from a very glittery white, to a deep brownish bronze.  Being creams, the chrome eyeshadows are not the most user friendly.  The colours are soft, highly pigmented and blendable though, and I think it is worth the extra preparation to use them.  I would recommend anyone with lids that are on the oily side priming the eyelids properly, in order to minimise creasing. I don’t suffer from oily lids, and, even after setting with a powder shadow, I found that I had more creases than a pair of linen trousers on a hot day.

Some may consider the metallic colours a little too much, but I personally love them all.  I am not someone who shies away from glittery eyeshadows – I proudly wear shimmer on my eyes on a daily basis.  This is probably breaking all the rules – because I have moderately hooded eyes, and because I am over 25 – but I genuinely don’t care.  Life would be pretty boring if we followed the rules all the time wouldn’t it?

So, if you are looking for some bright shimmery eyeshadows for a very reasonable price, and aren’t opposed to using creams, then I don’t think you will be disappointed with the Models Own Chrome Palette.

Tell me, have you tried this eyeshadow palette, and did you like it?
