Make-Up by One Direction *review*

If you haven't heard of the new make-up line recently put out by One Direction, you can check out this post for all the details on the different collections and where you can get them. In the meantime I have one of the sets to share with you here on the blog.  After getting over my initial disappointment over the fact that whoever packed my set smooshed the perfect point of my lipstick (is that not the worst ladies), I will admit that I was pleasantly surprised by this set. I will say that some of the items are a bear to get out of the tin, and what the heck am I going to do with the stencils (clearly designed for a younger market, although I might use it for Halloween); but overall the make-up is excellent quality and the mix of colors in my particular set was great.



So above we have the tin and my smooshed lipstick {sad panda}. The tin is cute, but it makes getting the make out kinda hard.

 
 The eyeshadow comes in this cute little compact and I'm loving the top right and the gold.  The top right looks brown, but as you can tell in the picture on the right {bottom color} it's got a coppery tone to it. Gorgeous!!! The gold color in the middle is strange.  It isn't a powder shadow like the others in the set.  It has a putty type texture and goes on with a definite shimmer.  It doesn't feel heavy after it is applied, and has a wet feeling at first.



Above is the lipstick {top color}, the lipstick with the gloss over it {middle} and the eye liner/shadow pencil.
The eye-liner/shadow pencil is a wider pencil, so its not really designed for lining. The lipgloss and lipstick have a more orange-y appearance, but on my skin-tone appears more pink-y.  The lip gloss comes on a flat brush, which is kinda odd (my first experience with that), but it goes on really nice.



 Lastly, the nail polish. I'm a polish snob, and I am also a little bit of a hoader. This polish seems clearly designed to be an overlay, as most glitter's appear to be.  However, it has some decent coverage and I didn't mind it as a simple, all by itself, polish. The set also comes with mascara, which is a black color and is really nice.  I wouldn't have expected such a nice mascara to come in a set like this. I recently purchased a terrible mascara, from a really nice brand, that wasn't cheap.  1D Mascara saved the day.



Here I am with the ever-adorable Mr. Air Force modeling the make-up.
As you can tell it definitely gives off a natural vibe, at least the set that I have. The tin includes
several options for the make-up, and how to apply the shadow. I used one of their suggestions.

  1. I got the same set to review as you! I really love the set especially the eyeshadows, but the one thing that I didn't like was how the glitter on the gold cream shadow was an overlay as was the shimmer on the peachy shade! It just made sparkles go everywhere! My favorite thing from this set was probably the lip gloss! It had wonderful pigmentation and I loved the idea that it'd glow under a blacklight (although I've never tried it under one yet!)
