I have a new computer! (you may already know if you follow me on Instagram) It's a huge learning curve with the new editing software, huge HD screen etc...but I'm so relieved to have it! It starts up in 5 seconds, what is this luxury!?! It's definitely going to take me a good while to get used to it!
Today I have the new Icing Collection from Models Own to share with you (guaranteed to give you a craving for ice cream, cake, or both!)
You'd be forgiven for thinking this was a matte collection due to the limited edition frosted bottles, however that's not the case (must admit I was a little disappointed!) they dry to a shiny, not overly glossy finish, and look best with a glossy top coat. The shades are perfect fondant colours and give me a craving for all things sweet, like I needed any encouragement! The formulas are creamy and a little thicker than average, though generally easy to apply. They also dry quite quickly!
Lilac Icing - this is my favourite! This has the best formula of the bunch, smooth and creamy and perfect in 2 coats. Shown is 2 coats plus top coat
Mint Icing - perfect mint green, just needs some chocolate chips ;) shown is 2 coats plus top coat
Nude Icing - Work-friendly chocolate ice cream! I found this one a little thinner so I applied an extra coat. 3 coats plus top coat
Pink Icing - Pretty baby pink. The formula is a little streaky here, so I used 3 coats plus top coat to even it out.
Peach Icing - Creamy peachy orange, one of those perfect Summer shades! 2 coats plus top coat
The Icing Collection is a solid set of spring-ready shades, though nothing out of the ordinary (with exception to the bottles, which may lure you in!) and due to them being quite opaque, they have potential to be used in stamping.
My Picks: Lilac Icing, Mint Icing
