There’s good and bad about this palette from Model’s Own, made to look like a line up of delicious donuts. That works really well while the lid is shut because it’s embellished with sprinkles so they do actually look donut-ish but once it’s open it’s not working quite so well. The palette is £14.99, which I don’t think is too bad for what is essentially a line up of 16 colours, if you count the contrasting shades in the centre.
I’ve held it up to the light so you can see how the shimmers are and trying to hide the feeling that I’m exhibiting a tray of breasts. However, it highlights the good and the bad. I don’t like the matte shades at all – they’re quite dry and hard to work with, while the shimmers are the opposite. Soft, blendable and an absolute dream to apply.
This is the top row swatched – you can see the mattes at the beginning just don’t work as well. I mean, you will be able to apply them with a brush and they will come out more evenly, especially if you blend then apply more colour, re-blend and so on. But I think it’s obvious how much more smoothly the shimmers apply.

The SpaceNK Advent calendar is almost here, pre-order for shipment on the 15th October with beauty gifts, worth over £700, from La Mer, Augustinus Bader, Rose Inc and more.
And, exactly the same problem with the second row. Ah well. I think there are some very pretty colours in this so if you’re short on shimmers, it’s worth consideration. You can find it HERE.
