Do you remember the Wet n Wild trio palettes that would have the use of that shade pressed into the tray, so you couldn't mess it up if you tried? Models Prefer do that now! And that's really cool!
So this little gem is called the Espresso Yourself palette (oho, I see what you did there), and features a base, lid, crease and corner color. Four shades, not three, so we're upping the difficulty level. Am I still going to be able to cope? Only one way to find out!
Models Prefer lipstick in Cherry Pie
The eyeshadows are quite fallout-ish, I ended up dampening the brush which helped a lot. I did and re-did them a few times, and whilst I couldn't clearly set the four colors apart from each other, I really liked the burnished-pewter look the four together gave me.
Never you mind my eyebrows - they're getting cornrowed tomorrow.
Elsewhere in this image, I'm wearing Loreal Nude Magique BB Powder, Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Tipsy, and Maybelline's Lots of Lashes mascara.
It's almost a pewter foil effect in person - these lights tend to bleach me out a bit, and thus the shadows aren't really done justice here. My first thought with this quad was that it was great work-makeup, which I'd still hold to. It's compact and solid and any of these four shades I'd happily wear on their own if I'm ultra lazy.
And how pretty is this lipstick?! It looked so RED in the tube, but went on more like a tinted balm than a lipstick. I hadn't spent much time with Models Prefer lipsticks, but this one has convinced me to look at the rest of the colors. A lip product has far more of a chance if I feel like I can apply it without a mirror with low chances of horrific accidents.
So yep, Models Prefer continue the trend of being far better than they have any right to be. Next stop - Imma get my hands on those glorious crayon-shaped lipglosses. IIiieeee!
