Models Own Fruit Pastel Collection Swatches and Review



Hi! Today I have the whole Models Own Fruit Pastel collection to show you, including the two brand new shades, Peach Melba and Coconut Cream!

This collection is made up of creamy pale pastels, and what's more, they're scented! Each shade has a fruity scent to match the colour, and they come complete with super cute, retro scratch and sniff stickers on the lids! The formula is pretty much the same across the shades, a little sheer as pastels tend to be but easy to build up. You could maybe get away with 2 thick coats with most, but I've used 3 thinner coats with each plus top coat to give it a more flawless finish. If you ever have a less than perfect finish, always add a top coat, it's saved me a good few times!

I'll start with the two new additions! This is Peach Melba. This instantly became one of my favourites from the collection, I love peachy shades. This has quite a nice fresh peach scent. 3 coats 


Coconut Cream is the second new addition. It's no secret how much I love off-white shades! Always perfect as a nail art base. I also love the smell of coconut (and this is strong!) so this is a winner with me. It's a little streaky on the first coat but evens itself out after you add more coats. 3 coats here 


Strawberry Tart is a strawberry milkshake sort of colour. This one smells like a bag of retro sweets! 3 coats


Grape Juice is a pale lilac shade. Love this one, lilac is one of my favourite colours (I'm sporting a bit of lilac hair at the moment!) The scent of this one is very subtle but really nice. 3 coats


Banana Split is a pale yellow and smells just like the little banana sweets in Runts. Remember Runts!? This one was a bit streaky, but adding a top coat evened out the finish. 


Blueberry Muffin is a baby blue and also has a more subtle scent. 3 coats 


Lastly, Apple Pie is a pale minty green and smells delicious! I think this is my favourite scent. 3 coats




This is a great little collection, it's good to have a range of go-to pastels! I like that Models Own have kept it updated by adding two new shades. The scents also last at least a day or two, I wore Apple Pie for quite a while and could still smell the apple scent when it was time to remove it. These are also great for gradient nail art (over a white base) they blend together so well!

My Picks: Peach Melba, Apple Pie and Grape Juice
