MODELS PREFER Rainbow Highlighter & Unicorn Brushes! Review & Swatches

Rainbows and Unicorns and Models Prefer, Oh My! Ignoring my terrible Wizard of Oz reference, how magical are the new Models Prefer Unicorn Brushes and Rainbow Highlighter?


We all love a good highlight so if you haven’t seen the new Models Prefer Rainbow Highlighter and Unicorn Brushes, I have an exciting unboxing and first impressions video for you.

I was so excited when I first saw them in the Priceline catalogue. I went into Priceline the very next day to purchase these little beauties.

I filmed my first impressions of these products, with swatches included. You can watch it below!

MODELS PREFER Soft Touch Rainbow Powder $16.99


A shimmering rainbow powder that adds a splash of colour and a sparkly glow to the face.
While the rainbow highlighter seemed a little pricey, I quickly realised how pigmented this highlighter was. The compact is quite large (the same size as all the Models Prefer powder products.) and the rainbow highlighter is extremely pigmented, so a little goes a long way.

It contains 5 shimmering shades, that are super sparkly and pigmented. You can apply the shades like a rainbow on your cheek or swirl the products in the pan to create your own custom shade (as demonstrated in my video).

When swirled together the colours create a pearlized white colour, probably not suitable for tanned or darker skin tones.
This is from one swipe of the product. Keep in mind that swiping with your fingers does give a stronger colour payoff.

The pearly white highlight colour the 5 colours create when mixed together.
Beware of all the glitter, which does tend to go everywhere (as you can see in my video). I did get a little highlighter happy so there was a lot of fallout.

However, there are no chunks of glitter in this product and the texture is extremely soft, buttery and glides beautifully onto the skin.

Full review on the Models Prefer Unicorn Highlighter brush coming soon!

Keep in mind you can wear the rainbow highlight as a full rainbow, all mixed together or just a couple colours mixed to create your own custom highlighters.

This was my first time using the product and I am yet to go out wearing it. Let me know if you would like an updated review in the future.

I hope you enjoyed this review of the Models Prefer Rainbow Highlighter. Let me know if you are definitely getting this product or you think they are gimmicky.

I would love to hear from you!
