Many, many moons ago, Models Own had a 50% off sale on all their items in order to commemorate hitting 50,000 Likes on their Facebook page. I decided I couldn't possibly miss this opportunity and decided to put in an order. They have such a huge variety of colours it took a lot of self-restraint not to throw everything into my online shopping cart.
As you can see, the lipsticks were squished at the top when they arrived. I wouldn't have minded so much if they were for me, but I intend to give them away and just wanted everything to be perfect. Replacements were sent, but unfortunately, one of the replacement lippies was also slightly squished. I guess there's really nothing much they can do. I think it's just poor packaging for the lippies.
Nevertheless, I'm SO happy with my little haul. Pretty colours make me happy!
Here are some quick swatches.
I find that the consistency of the nail polishes vary greatly. I only had to use one coat for Beth's Blue and 2 coats for Pink Punch in order to achieve the colour in the bottle. However, the first 2 coats of Lime Green and Pastel Pink were streaky so I added an extra coat for those.
All nail polishes had decent lasting power, though I really think it depends on the sort of chores/work you do. So it's quite hard to comment on that.
I am also very impressed with Models Own's top-notch customer service! They always replied my emails/Facebook messages within 24 hours (most times, within an hour, actually) and were always very polite and helpful. Excellent service!
Packaging was pretty secure as they wrapped everything with bubble wrap and placed them neatly into a Models Own box.
I didn't review everything because some of the items are going into a little giveaway I'm putting together, so keep an eye out for that ;)
