One Direction #Makeup Kits

I’m sure you have all heard of the successful band “One Direction”, but have you had a chance to check out their new and extensive makeup line? This limited-edition cosmetics collection is available at many major retailers throughout the country and beyond, including Lord and Taylor, Macy’s, ULTA, Sears, Target, Dillard’s, etc. This collection was created by Markwins International, which is the company behind brands such as Physicians Formula, Wet n Wild, The Color Institute, and more.

The One Direction Makeup Line continues to introduce makeup sets with fresh and fun packaging that are perfect for young women or One Direction enthusiasts. Their colors are bold and the cosmetics that they offer in each package are unique and exciting. They are also affordable, and make for a nice collection.

Today, I am reviewing three exclusive One Direction makeup kits that just hit stores in mid-November. These kits include: Electroglam Mascara, Liquilights Glow Gloss, and the Rock me Nail Kit. I received these kits in exchange for my honest opinions about the One Direction line.
 

The Electroglam Mascara kit comes with three “electric” colors:

  • Why Don’t we Go There? – Bright blue
  • Story of my Life – Canary yellow
  • Does he know? – Hot pink

These tubes are complete with a wand that can be used for accenting your eyelashes with a pop of color, or highlighting your hair. As a mascara, the Electroglam colors can be layered to build pigment, and can also lightly line the tips of your lashes for a more subtle look. As a hair mascara, you can be very creative — you can create streaks, multi-colored patterns with the trio, or even your own design. All you have to do is drag the wand down a patch of your hair, just as you would your lashes.

Below, I have shown the Story of My Life Electroglam Mascara on my mom’s (who was nice enough to model for me) top lashes, and the Why Don’t we Go There? on her bottom lashes. This is probably not a look that most middle-aged women would want to rock, but I think the blue and the pink would be really pretty for a night out, or to add some pop to a grungy summer style. Unlike many colored mascaras I have tried in the past, these actually are buildable and very noticeable, as you can see. There was no flaking, and my mom noted that they had relatively good staying power throughout the day. The wand is easy to use as an applicator and gets all lashes evenly.

 I have also shown Why Don’t we Go There? and Does he Know? on streaks of my mom’s hair. She has dark brown hair, and both colors were very pigmented. However, the application was not quite as seamless as it was on the lashes — it seemed to clump her curls together and was a little stiff and streaky; this look definitely takes more precision, and a little fiddling with. Again, the pigment is great, but I’m not sure if I’d be able to great it to look as flawless as I want without tangling my hair.

The Liquilights Glow Gloss comes with three UV-reactive lip glosses:

  • Kiss You – Orange glitter that will glow neon yellow under UV light
  • Taken – Pink glitter gloss that glows neon yellow under UV light
  • Through the Dark – A reddish-pink gloss that glows neon red-orange under UV light

Yes, that’s right…these lip glosses will glow under UV light, at your next party or concert, and are sure to make you the center of attraction. Unfortunately I did not have a UV light to show these working their magic, but I heard from a friend that the glow is very obvious. These .23 fl oz glosses are very sparkly and can be worn alone or on top of matte/cream lipsticks to enhance their color even more. Each Liquilight Glow Gloss contains Vitamin E as a moisturizing agent to keep your lips soft throughout the day.

Below I have shown swatches of the gloss on my lips, in order of Kiss You, Taken, and Through the Dark. My favorite was Taken, which was the most pigmented. Kiss You was a little too orange for my taste, but might be cute for a special event. For younger girls, the sparkle will be AWESOME, but I warn older girls (twenty-somethings, like me) that these are best paired with some neutral eyes, and you will still be sparkling when you take the Glow Gloss off. That being said, these have a nice formula and are not sticky, but nice and smooth, and I could see myself adding them to my nighttime look.

The Rock Me Nail Art Kit contains three exclusive UV-reactive polishes and three UV-reactive loose nail glitters, including:

  • Moments – Neon pink
  • Diana – 3D Holographic Top Coat
  • Happily – Cobalt Blue
  • Kicks – Baby blue glitter topping
  • Star – Holographic, pinkish glitter topping
  • Not Afraid – Hot pink glitter topping

Again, this One Direction makeup kit includes UV-reactive beauty supplies, which is pretty neat, especially for parties. These polishes and glitters are great for day or night, and can be worn in so many different combinations depending on your mood or taste. The glitters come in little pots and are loose, so you can choose to shake them onto your nails, or to dip your nails into the pot. You can create a full glitter effect by covering your whole nail, or try for a glitter gradient or abstract “French” manicure by just covering the tips. The top coat is great over one of the other polishes for a more dramatic effect.

In this first picture, I have shown “Moments” on all fingers, with two accent nails: “Star” on the index finger and “Not Afraid” on the ring finger. This is two coats of Moments — there is coverage, but the polish is still very sheer and not as cream as I am used to. It also seems to take awhile to dry, so be careful not to try to grab things before they have dried completely. The glitter is so much fun! Star is my favorite, hands down. It is mesmerizing to look at, and the holographic nature really catches the light. The glitter actually stays on very well; just be careful when you are shaking it on to have something underneath to prevent a glitter explosion. Not Afraid gives the polish that extra something that makes it a really cool manicure.

In the other picture below, we have “Happily” on every nail, with “Star” on the thumb (because why not?), “Kicks” on the pinky finger, and the 3D top coat Diana on the ring finger. Happily was less sheer than the pink polish in two coats, but still ended up smudging before we would have liked. However, we were really impressed with the glitter and the 3D top coat – this manicure really packs a punch, and I think the blue is especially pretty with the glitter for a New Year’s Eve look!

Highlights:

  •  All the makeup was very pigmented
  • The Electroglam Mascara worked better for us on lashes than hair
  • The lip gloss was not sticky and stayed on well but is very sparkly
  • The nail polish has nice colors, but is sheer and does not dry super fast
  • The nail glitters have amazing and very unique colors which stay on well and are easy to apply

Makeup by One Direction – Limited Edition Tins

 

I’m sure you have all heard of the successful band “One Direction”,
but have you had a chance to check out their new and extensive makeup
line? This limited-edition cosmetics collection is available at many
major retailers throughout the country and beyond, including Lord and
Taylor, Macy’s, ULTA, Sears, Target, Dillard’s, etc. This collection was
created by Markwins International, which is the company behind brands
such as Physicians Formula, Wet n Wild, The Color Institute, and more.

The
One Direction Makeup Line continues to introduce makeup sets with fresh
and fun packaging that are perfect for young women or One Direction
enthusiasts. Their colors are bold and the cosmetics that they offer in
each package are unique and exciting. They are also affordable, and make
for a nice collection.

Today I am reviewing the new Limited Edition Makeup Tins by One Direction. There are five tins to collect, one with each band member’s face featured on the front. The makeup inside each tin is the same (it would have been cool to see different makeup in each tin personalized to the nature of each band member, but that’s just my opinion). These tins include a little bit of everything for makeup lovers, especially young women who are just starting their collection.

There are five eye shadows in each tin, which include the following shades:

  • Nobody Compares – Metallic silver
  • Tell me a Lie – Metallic light pink
  • Same Mistakes – Metallic mint
  • I would – Dark brown with shimmer
  • Summer Love – Dark purple 
  • Everything about you – Smokey black/gray with shimmer

 These eye shadows are geared towards younger women, but are really appropriate for any age. The shimmer and sheen of the metallic shades is not too overpoweringly glitzy, and does not leave flakes or fall out during application. The kit includes a small sponge brush that is double-sided for putting on the eye shadow, but no mirror. These colors are relatively pigmented, especially the darker shades. They are blendable and can be layered to increase pigment. An eye primer or base would probably ensure that they last throughout the day without creasing. They are powder-based. 

In the picture below, I have used “Nobody Cares” on the inside of my mom’s lid, with hints of “Summer Love” in the middle of her eyelid and “Everything about you” in the crease and outer lid. We tried to create a smokey look that is versatile for day or night. The colors go well together. Below her pictures I have included a swatch of all of the colors on my hand so you can see the actual pigment on a medium skin-tone. 

The kit also includes one Eye Pencil (I Want), which is a dark black, and one Lip Gloss Top Coat (Over Again) which is a silver, glitter sparkle. In the pictures of my mom above, we also used the I Want Eye Pencil. It was also pretty pigmented and complimented the eye shadow well, but wasn’t overpowering. It did not draw well on the inside of my mom’s lower lid, which is something I usually do to make my eyes pop a little more. I am very picky when it comes to eye liners, but it definitely is better than many other liners that I have used in the past in terms of application and visibility. The Lip Gloss Top Coat is pictured with the lip glosses below. This product did not work well for me, unless I am just blind. I see the sparkle in the tube, but didn’t really see it transfer to my lips well over the other lip glosses. 

The limited-edition tin contains two nail polishes:

  • Alive – Multi-colored glitter topper
  • Stole my Heart – Magenta pink polish

Below, I have “Alive” on every finger, and “Stole my Heart” as an accent nail on my mom’s index finger. We put two coats of the polish, which is very pigmented, but still slightly sheer. The glitter top coat was easy to apply, and added a cute accent for a loud mani, which would be best for summer or a night out.

Finally, the tins contain four lip glosses and one small brush for application. The glosses include:

  •  Loved you First – Hot pink
  • One Thing – Frosted pink
  • Irresistible – Shimmered pearl
  • Heart Attack – Cream rose shine

The lip glosses are easy to apply, but I find that whenever lip gloss is not in a tube, it seems to have more of a thick texture, which is not as flattering on me. These definitely seem like glosses that younger girls would enjoy playing around with. The colors are pigmented, but the texture is very thick. I have swatched the colors below on my lips, in order of Loved you First -> One Thing -> Irresistible -> Heart Attack. Below the lip glosses is the lip top coat. My favorite would probably be Loved Your First, just because I am a sucker for pink glosses. 

      

 


  

        

Highlights:

  • Tins contain eye shadow, eye liner, brushes, polish, and a lip gloss top coat
  • The eye shadow is pigmented and easy to blend with good staying power
  • The eye liner is a nice shade and pigmented if you aren’t lining the inner lid
  • The polish is sheer, but the topper is unique
  • The lip gloss top coat does not appear to show up very well
  • The lip gloss is pigmented but very thick
