ModelCo freebie & discount coupon

This one's only for the Aussie girls. Sorry! The latest issue of Cleo magazine (August 2011) has a free ModelCo eyeshadow trio on the front. There's a choice of three palettes: dark smokey colours, neutral browns and a more colourful trio. Each one is worth $39, so $7.95 isn't bad. I don't read Cleo, but I'll make an exception this month!

There are three palettes to choose from, each worth $39.

I ended up going for the Island Fever trio, since I have heaps of dark colours and neutrals. Each eyeshadow is about 2cm x 2cm square, so they're quite a decent size. The palette also has a mirror in it, which is just wide enough to see your eyes in. Of course, the requisite sponge applicator is included.

They shadows are a good size.

The colours in the Island Fever palette are metallic gold and green, plus a matte navy with silver glitter. I swatched them dry over UDPP and the colour payoff is pretty impressive. Only the navy was a bit patchy to apply, as some mattes are. The other two applied nice and evenly.

The Island Fever palette.

But that's not all. You also get a 30% off discount code for the ModelCo web site (www.modelco.com.au), valid from July 18 until August 14. It can only be used on full-priced items and there's only one coupon redemption per person. The code is LOVE-CLEO and you enter it during checkout. If you like the free palette and want to get more, there are a total of eight to choose from on the web site. Enjoy, ladies!
