Below are the photos and my personal opinions of each product I received in the Makeup by One Direction “Up All Night” Collection to try…
4+1 Eyeshadow Palette
“This 4+1 Eyeshadow Palette is filled with playful blues and versatile neutrals: ‘More Than This’ – soft blushing pink, ‘Gotta Be You’ – silvered taupe shimmer, ‘Save You Tonight’ – shimmering turquoise blue, ‘Another World’ – royal blush shimmer, ‘Up All Night’ – sapphire glitter creme.”
REVIEW: WOWZA! The colors and pigmentation of all of the shadows in the palette are absolutely stunning and soft to the touch. I love the colors and the finishes and I just love this palette! I am super impressed. So far so good One Direction! Overall Rating: 5 STARS!
Little Black Dress Mascara
“The Little Black Dress Mascara is a volumizing mascara in perfectly black.”
REVIEW: You already know a girl can never have too much mascara in her collection! Let me start by saying that the wand is a bit deceiving… it looks very lengthening and not so volumizing (in person, that is). As I applied the first coat to my lashes I saw that it mostly lengthened my lashes. The second coat, on the other hand, instantly created a slight volumized effect to my lashes but not enough for me to consider this as my go-to volumizing mascara. The mascara is wonderful and the size of the mascara wand will make it perfect for all eye shapes and sizes. This mascara is also great with layering over top other mascaras. Overall Rating: 4.5 STARS!
Na Na Na Nail Varnish
“Na Na Na Nail Varnish is an aqua-blue metallic chrome nail varnish.”
REVIEW: I was most excited to try this nail polish because the color is what I’m usually attracted to. The aqua-blue metallic finish is perfect for a day out at the pool too! The first coat was sheer (not what I was expecting from the color in the bottle) but the second coat was opaque enough for my preference. I used this nail polish over the weekend on a trip out of town and it held up pretty well for being a carefree person that I am with my nails. There were minor chips but nothing overly chipped to wear it looked like I needed to repaint my nails. Overall Rating: 4.5 STARS!
Taken Liquilights Glow Gloss
“Taken Liquilight Glow Gloss is a powerhouse glitter pink lip gloss that glows to neon orange under UV light.”
REVIEW: This lip gloss looks super cool. When I tried it on, it went on well and beautifully. I wish I had a UV light in hand so I could get the full effect of the gloss. The only thing that I wasn’t fond of was the scent! The scent seemed to be really artificial and I couldn’t grasp what type of scent it was… It could have been because of the UV light effect that gives this gloss a weird scent, too! I’m just not a fan of the scent but the overall gloss looks amazing. Overall Rating: 4 STARS!
I Should Have Kissed You Lipstick
“I Should Have Kissed You Lipstick is a bubblegum pink creme lipstick.”
REVIEW: The packaging is nice and sturdy. The formula is absolutely amazing and the lasting power works as well as other lipsticks in the market. The color is way too “barbie pink” for me and has too cool of an undertone for my skin tone. I had a friend of mine try it on who is much lighter and less warmer in undertone than I am and it looked amazing on her. I love this lipstick but I’m going to give it to my friend since she can pull it off better than I can. Don’t get me wrong, I love bold lipstick but this one just doesn’t look good on me. If it were a different shade, I’d probably end up keeping it. Overall Rating: 4.5 STARS!
Stand Up Eye and Body Crayon
“Stand Up Eye and Body Crayon is described as a dark denim color that can be used around the eyes and all over the body.”
REVIEW: This crayon is super saturated and full of pigment. I love using this as an eyeshadow base to intensify the eyeshadows and using it for body art. It literally goes on like a crayon but a vert pigmented crayon… Overall Rating: 5 STARS!
5-Piece Decorator Stencil Set
“This set includes a 5-piece decorator stencil set! Decorate yourself, your stuff and your friends with One Direction Doodles.”
REVIEW: Ooooh, this is so fun. Everyone will enjoy these stencils as an added bonus. I will use these stencils for drawing shapes on my face and body and shapes on paper too. It’ll be great for doodling. Overall Rating: 5 STARS!
