I was thrilled to be able to receive a product from the One Direction makeup line through BrandBacker. As a fan of their music, I love knowing that I can own one of the Make Up by One Direction Limited Edition premium cosmetics collections. The Make Up by One Direction collection is a limited edition ensemble of make up that is inspired by their music.
One Direction Makeup Line
There are three different collections that are part of the One Direction makeup line: Take Me Home, Midnight Memories, and Up All Night.
I received the Up All Night collection which includes:
- 4+1 Eye Shadow Palette in 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 blue shimmer, “Up All Night” – sapphire glitter creme.
- “Little Black Dress” – volumizing mascara in perfectly black
- “Ma Ma Ma” – Aqua-blue metallic chrome nail varnish
- “Taken” – Liquilights Glow Gloss – Powerhouse glitter pink lip gloss that glows to neon orange under UV light.
- “I Should Have Kissed You” – bubblegum pink creme lipstick
- “Stand Up” – dark denim eye and body crayon
This collection also includes 5 piece decorative stencil set so you can decorate yourself, your stuff, your friends with One Direction doodles.
I generally avoid blue eyeshadow like the plague so what I did was apply “More Than This” to my lids and then “Gotta Be You” to the crease. I very, very lightly applied “Up All Night” which is a glitter over the lids. I used both the mascara and the eye crayon for accent. The mascara was very easy to apply and gave me pretty decent length with no clumping. The eye and body crayon glided on smoothly under my eye and was then easy to smudge with a makeup wedge.
I used the “I Should Have Kissed You” and followed with a quick swipe of the “Taken” – Liquilights Glow Gloss on my lips. All in all, this is a pretty fun collection. While I won’t use the stencils, I can see myself using most of the rest of the makeup in this collection. I do love the final look I got with this One Direction makeup line.
