This palette caught my eye as soon as I saw a photo of it in an email from Models Own. Donuts? And eyeshadow? Yes please! This is the latest special edition offering from the very quirky Models Own – Cheat Day Eyeshadow Palette.
The palette comes in an icing covered cardboard box. The product itself has a plastic, clear lid with the donut icing decorations printed on it. The eyeshadows themselves are particularly unique – a large round pan which a contrasting colour in the centre of them. One of my friends pointed out that they look like boobs (she has a dirty mind!) but I, of course can only see donuts.
I swatched the outer rings of the pans in natural daylight, using my finger. The pigment didn’t blow me away to be honest. I was a little disappointed whilst I did this. However, when I used the colours on my eyes, they did show up much better. The shimmer shades are definitely more pigmented than the mattes.
I like the selection of colours – nice, can’t-go-wrong nudes. I’d love it if Models Own brought out a vibrant colour version though!
