Review: Makeup by ONE DIRECTION Limited Edition Beauty Collection*

Powered by BrandBacker*

I'm on a roll with these sweet ole ONE DIRECTION makeup kits! I think by far, out of all the beauty kits I have by 1D, my most favorite is this one I'm going to share with you today!
Created for—and inspired by—fans of the world's biggest band, this limited-edition beauty collection is fun, bold and a tad mischievous, just like ONE DIRECTION

5 Limited Edition Tins are available (1 for each band member). Please note that the makeup within the tins are all the same.

Eye Shadows:

Left to Right:
  • "Nobody Compares" - Metallic silver
  • "Tell Me A Lie" - Metallic nude pink 
  • "Same Mistakes" - Metallic mint
  • "I Would" - Smokey brown shimmer
  • "Summer Love" - Smokey purple haze
  • "Everything About You" - Smokey black shimmer
These eye shadows are so pretty in the pan! The metallic shades are so buttery soft, they swatched effortlessly on my arm and the pigmentation is gorgeous! The bottom three shades were a bit more troubling for me to swatch. They are a bit chalky and required a bit more effort to apply.

Eye Pencil:

  • "I Want" - True matte black
The eye liner is exactly how it's described. The liner is a true matte black. When I swatched the formula it reminds me of the Chubby Eye and Body Crayon from the very first 1D makeup kit. The pencil does smudge, so have some q-tips and the pencil liner in your purse for touch ups!

Lip Gloss:

  • "Loved You First" - Bubble gum pink
  • "One Thing" - Frosted pink ice
  • "Irresistible" - Shimmered pearl
  • "Heart Attack" - Creamy rose shine
The lip glosses are all very pretty and are not sticky/tacky on the lips. They all have a hint of shine to them when you wear them. It would be nice to have these glosses in tubes so that we can take and toss in our purses.

Lip Gloss Top Coat:

  • "Over Again" - Silver glitter sparkle
This top coat can be worn alone over some lip balm or over the lip glosses above. I didn't notice a difference when I applied this top coat over the four glosses above. The one thing I don't like though is that the applicator won't look so pretty after a few uses if you use the top coat over a different gloss shade over time.

Nail Varnish:

  • "Stole My Heart" - Magenta pink shimmer
  • "Alive" - Multi-coloured glitter flakes
The nail polishes are so tiny and cute! I like how they included the glitter flakes to add more sparkle to the magenta nail varnish.

Overall, this is another great makeup kit for your beloved tween/teen! Click here to get details of where you can get this makeup kit!

I hope you enjoyed my review! Have you started your holiday shopping yet? I'm slowly progressing on mine lol.

Let's talk Thanksgiving, share with me your favorite memories and dishes! Are you catching the Black Friday sales?!?! I'll probably wait and just shop online, lol.

I want to take a moment to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! Have an amazing and safe holiday with your family and friends.
