You guys know that I’m a makeup junkie!
I LOVE reading makeup reviews in my spare time. I love trying ALL the products. And I love sharing my favorites with you!
I picked up some new makeup from Nordy’s beauty department just the other day when Nordstrom launched a limited edition cosmetics collaboration between Karl Lagerfield & ModelCo. ModelCo is a cruelty-free Australian-based beauty brand that I’ve heard incredible things about. And Karl Lagerfield is the creative director of Chanel & Fendi. So… I new this exclusive collection was going to be killer!
I used the Fibre Lash Brush-On False Lashes Mascara Set, the Choupette Eyeshadow Palette in “warm/nude” & the Minaudière Mini Lip Kit on my eyes and lips below! I was impressed with all of the products tested, but the Fibre Lash Mascara Set was by far my favorite!
I’ve officially found a new favorite mascara, people! This is HUGE!
(Because I’m REALLY picky!)
Pssst… how cute is the palm print robe above?! It’s currently 50% off! I’m wearing a size medium and it fit over my big bump so I suggest sizing down! 🙂
Here’s a little before & after photo of the eyes:
What do I love about this mascara?
As you can see in the photos below, this mascara application requires 2 products that are sold as a set – the extension mascara and the lash fibers. I’ve been a LONGTIME fan of lash fibers to add extra length and volume. I’ve tried quite a few lash fibers throughout the years – some hits and some misses. But these fibers by ModelCo are by far the best because THEY ACTUALLY STICK. They’re thick and fluffy but they stick to your lashes extremely well after you apply the extension mascara. They add definite volume and length. See the photo above for proof. 🙂 You apply the mascara, then the fibers, then more mascara on top to seal. It’s a 3-step process, but it’s easy-peasy!
The result is soft, fluffy lashes that I LOVE! They look natural yet dramatic. No clumps.
Also, I don’t even need use an eyelash primer with this mascara which cuts down on the amount of steps/products.
Psst… I always use an eyelash curler before and after mascara. Just be sure to wait at least 10 minutes after mascara application before curling or your mascara will clump! The curler makes a HUGE difference!
Okay, now let’s chat eyeshadow!
This eyeshadow palette was my second favorite ModelCo x Karl Lagerfield buy! I chose the warm/nude palette, and the colors were totally on point. The 16 pigments are very versatile. There are plenty of daytime hues, but there are also lots of options for that date-night-apropos smokey eye. 🙂
What did I love most about these shadows?
The blendability & the lack of of eyeshadow fallout!!!
I really despise eyeshadows with a lot of fallout. The pigment gets stuck in my concealer and darkens the under-eye. No thank you. These shadows had little to no eyeshadow fallout, and that’s a huge selling-point in my book!
Side Note: This is my FAVE eyeshadow crease brush. I’ve been using it since 8th grade… no joke! It blended these shadows to perfection.
Additional Side Note: I set the makeup brushes on top of the exact colors I used to create the “everyday” eyeshadow look I’m wearing in these photos. See photo below.
Now, let’s talk lippies!
In the photo below I’m wearing lipliner in “Rosewood” and lipstick in “Kate” from this lip kit. These 2 lippies created a perfect pink! The color “Stella”, that is also included in the set, is a very pigmented nude- it looks like a hue Kim Kardashian would sport. I genuinely love the lipliner and the 2 lipsticks that are included in this set. I haven’t given the glosses a try- I’m not much of a gloss girl. Too sticky.
The only bummer is the small size of the lippies and the large price tag of the lip kit. However, the lipsticks do come packaged in a minaudière that you could use as a clutch. If that’s your thing, then the high ticket price might worth it!
Thank you so much for reading, my friend! If you give the lash fiber mascara a try and love it, please let me know in the comments below! I’m so excited about this new mascara find and the entire Karl Lagerfield + ModelCo collection!
hugs to you,
