Review: Models Own Lip Balm

Took a quick trip to Boots today to pick up a few essentials, and as usual I found myself by the make-up counters, looking at some highly non-essential products!

Anyway, I took advantage of the 2 for £8 offer to buy a Models Own lip balm:

This is actually more of a lip tint than a balm (it's halfway between a lipstick and a lip gloss: not as pigmented as the former and not as shiny as the latter). They have a gorgeous coral shade called Tangerine, but I went for the darkest pink, Blackberry:

This is fairly close to my natural lip colour, but it gives my lips a very subtle "just-bitten" pinky-purple sheen. Although it looks really scary in the pot, the colour is buildable – I've swatched it on my hand so you can see:

I really like the texture of this, and my lips feel really moisturised! This could very well turn into a Can't Live Without product in the next few days ...



  1. I'm a big fan of Models Own. Especially now they are in Boots. Its tooo easy to just pick up a couple of varnishes isn't it. May have to search out a lip balm or two (or three)

  2. haha, look at the Q&A post a few posts below, it pretty much describes my uniform :)

  3. Kellie, yes I think I need to learn some self-control when I'm around their make-up stand, especially with this 2 for £8 offer! I think I'll be testing out a few more of their shades so stay tuned ...

    Camilla, oh so lucky that you can still wear the clothes you wore to school, I had to buy a whole new wardrobe for my sixth form!
