Models Own make me Blush!

Just thought id do a little review of two powder blushers that ive bought from Models Own.  I already own quite a few of their nail varnishes but when they had their Facebook sale, i thought id try some of their make up offerings.

First up is Warm Glow:



Warm Glow is a pink peach shade with a golden glittery shimmer to it. What a GORGEOUS powder blusher.  If you're looking for something to compare it to, id say it is quite similar to Coralista by Benefit. I think that out of the two, I prefer Warm Glow by Models Own because its much more pigmented and easier to build up, Coralista is just slightly lighter. Plus at £5, Warm Glow is less than half the price of Coralista (£23.50 RRP) and in my opinion, much better value for your pennies.
  
I felt that using Warm Glow gave me a healthy look and instantly lit up my face with a 'warm glow'.
I have blonde hair and think that it really suits my colouring but I also think this blush would look great no matter what your hair colour.  It really is a beautiful blush and its bronzing qualities also make it fantastic for highlighting by sweeping across the eyelids or the cheekbones.  Although this is more of a summer blush, i will defy the odds and wear it year round!
 
Onto the second blush i bought: Cheeky Pink.

Cheeky Pink is a bright pink powder blusher.  It has a slight sheen to it so it makes your cheeks look healthy.  It is really pigmented so its best to use a light hand and then build up the colour to create your desired effect.


Cheeky Pink looks lovely all year round- in the summer with all the bright trends and pretty florals and in the winter with paler skin to create rosey pink cheeks.
 
Although two very different shades, both Warm Glow and Cheeky Pink are gorgeous, high quality soft powder blushers.  Here they are side by side for a comparison.
Models Own also have a third blush called Peach Blush.  I havent tried it yet because i thought it looked like more of a light brown peach and since I was wearing a lot of bronzer over the summer when i bought these two, I didnt think it would really stand out.  Id still like to give it a go sometime though.
 
You can find Models Own products on their website here, on ASOS and in selected River Island and Boots stores.  Most of their products retail at £5 each and for the quality you're getting, they're well worth it.  All of their packaging is simple but effective using clear packaging with white writing.  I love this look. 
 
Have you tried any of the powder blushers by Models Own?  Are there any others you would recommend?
