Models Own Leeds Launch!

Yesterday was a very exciting day for the Leeds Beauty Market as the brand that are renowned for their amazing, pigmented nail varnish’s that is Models Own have opened their first flagship store outside of London in our hometown of Leeds. It is based in the Trinity Shopping Centre, a key location for shoppers!

As beauty recruiters it would have been a sin not to go and pop down and say ‘Hello’ to the people that we speak with over the phone regularly and put name’s to faces! It was great to finally meet Paul & Leanne who we work very closely with and it was great to understand why they decided to open up in Leeds. It’s like they said Leeds is an up & coming city with a big market, especially with the recent opening of the Victoria Gate at the later end of last year.

The store was looking great and it really bright and vibrant which is what they encourage people to be with their makeup so I like that the theme ties in great!

One thing that I do have to say about the store is that the staff are great, we had a lady personally looking after us and every question we had about products she could answer in a heartbeat, we didn’t catch her name but she had dark hair, was wearing pink eye shadow and had a piercing underneath her lip. She was a great representative for the company.

We wish Models Own all the success in the North & beyond and hope that there are many more openings we can attend and we hope that Kate the Store Manager in Leeds & the team carry on the success that was demonstrated yesterday!

GOSH Long Lasting Lip Marker – 002 Pink

I have never bought anything from GOSH so when this was in Septembers glossy box I was really keen to try it!

As I’ve mentioned in a previous post – I have never suited pink lipstick and I don’t really have a big collection of pink lipsticks so when I was a little bit disappointed that it wasn’t red or a dark purple colour!

But hey ho, what I really like about this product is that it actually true to its name – a marker! It’s got a very fine tip so it is really precise with the application.

I wouldn’t necessarily use this product on a night out as it’s quite as pigmented as a lipstick, however I definitely would use it during the day as it is quick and easy to apply, won’t take up too much space on your handbag and it also has quite a nice smell to it! It also dries very quickly and doesn’t feel thick or sticky on your lips like some lipsticks/glosses.
