Models Own Velvet Goth Review & Swatches: Amethyst, Sardonyx, Obsidian


New for Autumn from Models Own is the Velvet Goth Collection: five matt, yet sparkly 2D jewel shades, topped with limited edition velvet lids.


The shades I have are:

  • Amethyst - royal purple with fine purple and fuchsia glitter
  • Sardonyx - blood red with fine scarlet glitter
  • Obsidian - dark charcoal grey with fine silver glitter and medium sized hexagonal holo-ish rainbow glitter

The other two colours, both of which look gorgeous (and remind me of peacocks!) are:

  • Absinthe - deep emerald green
  • Valerian - rich bottle blue


Designed to be worn matt, the polishes are all densely packed with glitter and highly pigmented, leaving a matt,  slightly textured finish which although not quite velvety, doesn’t feel scratchy like some glitters. 

Of course I couldn’t resist seeing how these babies would look with a slick of gloss - and I wasn’t disappointed!

Pretty swoony, right?  The gloss top coat (Lumos, kindly recommended by Charlotte from Lipglossiping) brought the polishes to life in a way that reminds me of looking through a kaleidoscope!

Here is the full set…

I can’t deny that the velvet lids are a big seller for me - and I think these would make gorgeous gifts. Great to have the option of wearing them either matt or glossy too.

Models Own Velvet Goth polishes* will be £5 each at Boots from 4 September and Superdrug, 25 September.

Which look do you prefer: matt or glossy?
