Models Prefer: Lips

If you live in Australia then you'd know that Models Prefer is the range of cosmetics that has been developed by Priceline's beauty team, providing quality products for less.  We recently had the opportunity to try out some of their products and today we're bringing you our thoughts on some of their lip products including the Moisture Lust Glossy Lipstick, Infinite Colour Lipstick and the Infinite Colour Lipglaze.  



The Moisture Lust Glossy Lipstick is considered to be a shiny and protective lipstick that provides moisture, comfort and light coverage on the lips.  I would agree with all those claims, as it does give off a shiny appearance and is very comfortable to wear.  The pigmentation is pretty good for one swipe (as seen in .gif), and buildable.  Salted Caramel doesn't look too bad when swatched, however on my lips it really doesn't flatter me.  With my skin tone, it translates to make me look really washed out, despite the colour of the lipstick itself to be more like a light brown with some orange tones through it, however on other skintones it can be considered a nude.  Colour aside, the formulation is one of the most hydrating formulas that I've tried, but it does just sit on top of your lips.  I remember looking up product information for this and ended up coming across reviews stating that this formula was similar to the Revlon Lip Butters- I wouldn't really compare the two.  Lip Butters are much more on the lipstick side, and there's less slip and slide after application, however this lipstick is more on lipgloss side, as the formula feels more 'watery'.  Personally this kind of formula isn't for me, the texture is a little too thin and emollient to the point where it can be smudged easily.

The Infinite Colour Lipstick claims to be a long-wearing, water-resistant lipstick that provides a demi-matte or metallic finish.  Tribal Rouge is a is a bright, true red with slight pink undertones and offers a matte finish.  I quite like the texture of this; it easily glides across your lips and it doesn't accentuate flakeyness. One thing to note is that it does have that slight stickiness when you press your lips together. The pigmentation is pretty outstanding for a drugstore lipstick and the staying power is really impressive lasting 6+ hours . For the most part after eating and drinking, it remained just as bright as I had first applied it. There was rubbing off at the inner corners and inside the mouth but nothing too dramatic. I really quite enjoy the formula of this lipstick and how it feels on my lips.  If you're someone who enjoys moisturising or hydrating lipsticks, but would want to try out matte formulas without compromising on the level of comfort, then this is the one to try.  The lipstick "bullet" is also smaller and I find that it eliminates the need to use a lipbrush separately to create the really polished and defined look.


Lipglosses aren't usually something I really steer towards when it comes to lip products, but I was pleasantly surprised when this lipgloss had exceeded my expectations of what would be a sticky mess.  Unlike previous lipglosses that I have tried (keep in mind this was probably more than 4 years ago), the Infinite Colour Lipglaze was not sticky and the formula didn't feel 'heavy'.  The shimmer particles Fairy Dust can be noticeably gritty when you rub your lips together, however upon application it isn't something you'd notice straightaway.  For me, you can see how I had unevenly colour distribution on the left, but the lipgloss gave me a nice glaze and a light wash of colour to even out everything.  I can see myself using this lipgloss if I want something to tone down a heavy eye look.


Observing the swatches, Salted Caramel definitely comes off more like a light brown/orange nude colour, however it just doesn't translate the same onto my lips.  The shine is fairly apparent in this swatch, especially when you compare it to the lipgloss, which has a traditional glossy finish. Tribal Rouge and Fairy Dust on the other hand both are fairly true to the the swatches. Tribal Rouge comes off as a true red, but on the lips is not as bright and 'loud' and Fairy Dust is more of a light pink with iridescent shimmers.
Overall, these are very affordable, accessible and perform an average of 4/5.  I personally have my eyes on the Infinite Colour Lipstick in Forbidden Love and Secret Affair as the formulation really ticks my boxes!  The Moisture Lust Glossy Lipstick and the Infinite Colour Lipstick both retail for $11.99, and the Infinite Colour Lipglaze retails for $13.99- something to keep in mind for Priceline's next 40% off sale ;)

  1. I haven't seen the infinite colour lipsticks before - they seem really nice and awesomely long wearing! I haven't tried too much of Model's Prefer, but I really should give their stand a proper look through.

    1. Not sure when they updated their packaging, but their whole stand just looks much more sleek and amped up from their previous packaging. The finish of the Infinite Colour Lipsticks are pretty amazing! x

  6. WHOAH GIF :D
    Personally not a fan of lipglosses, but Fairy Dust is seriously gorgeous!
    Yeah, not going to lie, 'Salted Caramel' does make the lips a bit washed out, but good thing the formula is a redeeming point, right? :)

    1. The moisturising aspect of the lipstick is the only redeeming aspect, personally, but sadly even then it's not really my cup of tea! Fairy Dust is pretty gorgeous ;) xx

  7. Ooh, I wish this was available where I am! The texture of Tribal Rouge looks amazing against your hand. I also love it on your lips! Something about reds makes me so attracted to them.

  8. Ooh, the Infinite Colour Lipstick looks fab - what a gorgeous colour! And the matte finish looks nice too. I'll have to check these out next time I'm in Priceline. I have the glossy lipstick in Peach Tea, which I like a lot since it has a smooth and balmy formula.

    1. I much prefer the matte finish lipstick to the glossy lipstick; it's a little too too balmy for my liking haha Peach Tea does look like a gorgeous colour though :)

  10. Great post! The Tribal Rouge infinite lip colour is (to me) the absolute perfect red lipstick. I bought this on an impulse a few months ago and now I wear it frequently. It's long lasting, doesnt bleed or smudge onto your teeth. The best part is it's true blue-red but somehow not too bright and loud. I'm very pale and this lipstick just looks a millions bucks. Planning to buy several spare tubes just in case they discontinue. The rest of the range is quite good as well - I wear the foundation and use the brushes too.
