I have heard so many good things about Model In A Bottle, but was never really interested in trying it.
When I went to IMATS, they had a booth set up, and they also had a show special, that seemed like a pretty good deal so I picked it up.
The show special came with a full size Model In a Bottle makeup setting spray, eye makeup remover, Long lasting eyebrow sealer, an eyelash curler, and two makeup brushes.
Model In a Bottle
This was my first time ever trying this product and I wasn't sure how I would like it but it's an amazing product.
First off it smells amazing. I thought it was going to smell like alcohol but it has a nice slightly musky/floral smell. It's not very strong and you don't smell it all day, just when you first apply it.
You apply this after you have put on ALL your makeup, hold 10 to 12 inches away from your face, close your eyes and spray. It dries very quickly.
I tested this out in 105 degree weather and my makeup didn't budge! I was a bit shiny on my forehead, but my makeup was still intact. My blush didn't fade and one of the best things for me was my eyeliner hadn't ran down under my eyes! Love this stuff! It's like magic in a bottle! If you have oily skin and your makeup melts off, or you live where it's boiling hot right now, then you need this!
Eye Makeup Remover
I don't usually use eye makeup remover too often, because I use makeup removing wipes, but this one works great. It got off all my eyeshadow, and my waterproof gel liners.
Long Lasting Eyebrow Sealer
I was looking forward to trying this and using it with my Senna Cosmetics Brow Kit, that I picked up from IMATS as well. It definitely works great and holds your eyebrows in place all day, but you can't use too much otherwise your brows will look crusty like you have gel in your hair. A little goes a long way, so use the teeniest amount!
The eyelash curler didn't work for me, which I was kinda bummed about because I thought it would be great to keep in my makeup bag since it is so portable but I just couldn't seem to fit all my eyelashes in the curler because my eyes are wide. I might still keep it in my bag for emergencies. As I typed emergencies, I thought that was funny, how bad of an emergency could I have for my eyelashes! Haha!
I thought these would just be some cheapo brushes, but these are actually really nice. They are so soft. They are made of natural and synthetic fibers. I love using the little one to blend shadow, highlight the brow bone, or set under eye concealer. The larger one I have been using for powder, blush, and bronzer. I definitely recommend these.
You can find all these items at http://modelinabottle.com/index.html or http://www.misikko.com/model-bottle.html . Misikko has it a little cheaper and they even sell a set that comes with Model In a Bottle, eye makeup remover, and the brushes for $34.99.
