Models Own Fireworks: Banger, Sparkler & Roman Candle Swatches


Models Own Fireworks Collection launches this week, with five new glitters made up of multi-faceted fragments allowing you to choose the intensity you want.  I have to confess my love of sparkle has waned a little of late, but these are pretty special and may have rekindled a little spark again… scroll down for swatches of Banger, Roman Candle and Sparkler.


Banger, one as beautiful as you deserves a much more fabulous name.  As soon as I saw this I knew it would be perfectly partnered with Kiko’s new Venom Teal shade, which I promised to swatch last week in my review of Dark Heroine here.  The blue and fuchsia shards pick out the shimmering purple and aqua undertones of Venom Teal beautifully… I confess to being quite bedazzled by my own nails when wearing this combo.


Sparkler is my second favourite from the Fireworks collection, mainly as the silver shards are so holographic I find them mesmerising. I’ve swatched it below over a pastel, but wanted to show you how lovely it also looks contrasted against a dark shade like Venom Teal. It’s also the least dense, so can be used for a fine sprinkling or built up as preferred.

These are the three shades swatched from my pinkie: Roman Candle, Sparkler and Banger & Roman Candle again. Roman Candle is made up of six pink glitters and shards, pretty but my least favourite - the other two are stand outs for me.  I’ve applied them here over Rimmel Salon Pro in Peppermint (full review here).  I also think they would look gorgeous over black or white.

I’ve included a close up to show you the texture and detail of each shade, from top to bottom: Roman Candle, Sparkler and Banger.

Models Own Fireworks will be available from Wednesday 4 September at Boots.

Any of these lighting your fire?
