A range of makeup and cosmetic products celebrating youth, style, and the uninhibited lifestyle of a new generation. Celebrating life with bold shades, unique formulae and infused with limited edition collectable packaging, Makeup from One Direction is fun, bold, often irreverent, with a touch of cheeky mischievousness. Offered at prices that every girl and woman can afford.
I recently had the unique opportunity to review a makeup kit that will be available later on this month. These One Direction makeup kits will be available in 3 varieties, and I received the “Take me Home” Collection. This kit is geared towards the “Girl Next Door” and offers more natural looking makeup.
I was immediately drawn to the packaging, it is very nice! I love the directions on the inside of the tin casing! The kit I received includes:
- “Taken”-Liquilights Glow Gloss: Orange glitter rush lip gloss that glows neon yellow under UV light
This looks very bright, but it’s not! It adds a nice iridescent glow to the lipstick included in the kit and I look forward to trying it with other lip products. It’s not sticky and doesn’t really have a smell or taste to it.
- 4+1 Eye Shadow Pallette in the perfect nude shades
- “Back for You”-velvet creme
- “Change My Mind”-peachy shimmer
- “C’mon C’mon”-soft taupe
- “Little Things-smokey brown
- “Take Me Home”-golden glitter creme
I really like this palette because the colors are very neutral and I feel these colors would look great with any eye color! The pigment was pretty good over a primer, and I noticed little to no fall out. I love that you can create a variety of subtle to more dramatic looks with this palette. There are also some ideas on the inside of the collectable tin.
- “Last First Kiss”-nude-pink sheer lipstick
This was very sheer and I applied over a balm to avoid dryness. The color is subtle but very pretty and I think it would be great for a more dramatic eye or for work/school. I also think the color is great for younger teens.
- “Little Black Dress”-volumizing mascara in perfectly black
This was a bit less dramatic than what I normally like, but the formula was pretty good. There was no clumping or smudging that I noticed. I used 2 coats in the photo above of my eyes. Again the less dramatic look would be very appropriate for a teen or anyone who likes a less dramatic, yet defined look.
- “Live While We’re Young”-multi-dimensional gold glitter nail polish
This polish contains larger hex gold glitters and smaller hex gold holo glitters in a clear base. I applied 2 coats over a color I already had on called Requested by Mentality Polish. This is a fun polish with an easy to work with formula. It would look great over a variety of colors.
- “I Wish”-warm chocolate brown eye and body crayon
This applied pretty easily on my eyes. I used it as an eyeliner and I was happy with the result. It can also be used an a darker eye shadow and a body crayon for the stencils that are included in the kit. The stencils would also be fun to decorate your school supplies and the makeup tin with!
This is a very cute, natural looking makeup look! This would be great for an everyday makeup look or for school. I enjoyed all the items in the kit and I will definitely use them again.
The kit, along with the 3 others in the collection, will be available in the US in late August. International release dates will be announced soon! I think these kits will retail for around $29 each.
