Review: Models Own Lip Cheek & Face Paint in Neon Pink

When Models Own was having their World Cup special, I couldn't resist picking up this cream product, since I'm apparently addicted to cream blushes. While this is advertised as a face paint, working in the real world doesn't really lend itself to face paint in the traditional circus stand sense. I bought the neon pink color as I felt that would be the "safest" option (though the product also comes in blue, orange and neon yellow - woah nelly!).

Housed in a little 6gram glass jar, Models Own face paints promise to "make you stand out in a crowd". No thanks, how do they work as blush?
Well, they weren't kidding around when they called this neon pink. It's very pink. Neon, even! Though, thankfully as far as I know not black-light reflective. Because it's advertised and formulated to be a face paint, this stuff is super duper pigmented. Seriously, I learned that if I'm the least bit blearly-eyed and not fully awake, I shouldn't even attempt to apply this stuff. You only need to gently tap your finger in the jar and that will produce enough product for both cheeks! Don't even rub it, just tap.
That's more than enough, seriously!
This picture washes out the color a little, it's even brighter. However, thankfully for my unassuming 5am cheeks, it blends well on top of foundation. I just have to make sure my cheeks aren't super dry so they don't suck up the product. After being blended, it can create a very natural pretty pink flush which I swatched but doesn't look like I swatched thanks to my crappy camera. You'll just have to trust me on that one.

I found this lasted all day but I don't have oily skin. For £5 I think it's a bargain since you wind up using so little product. It'll probably dry out before I use it all. 

9-5-er approved! Oh who am I kidding, I work 9 hour days... but you get the picture. Definitely work appropriate.

I'm tempted to try the neon orange option, might be the perfect coral cheek?

Oh gosh, this makes me so jealous. I wish I had access to Model's Own!

@Lisa: Yup! But it does blend out to be more wearable!

@Mimi: Oh, I don't really have access to it either but they ship wordwide (I believe - at least to the states) on their website, shipping is a bit expensive though so this was my first order since there was a good sale!

I got this is neon orange, i love that you can use it wherever you want but the orange one really isn't neon enough for me. I demand more neon!
Now i want the pink and yellow, not the blue though, it's dark and not at all neon.

@Lillian: So my guess is it will be the perfect orange color for me! =)
