MakeUp by 1D – Mascara, Lip Gloss and Nail Polish Oh MY! *WIN*

Make-up by 1D Haul! OMG, I’m in make-up heaven!!! 
It’s so much that I’m planning a couple review posts and videos for you all, but I wanted to share the haul first; as well as giving you the chance to win some of your very own Make-Up by 1D.
What I will say is that so far I’m loving it. These are all new sets so let me update you on what they have now. Again, the different make-up items are named after 1D songs.

 ELECTRO GLAM MASCARA –  ($16.50) this is a tri of colored mascara for your lashes (or HAIR). This, along with a lot of the other make-up in this collection, will react to UV light. This is probably good for all that clubbing we do right? LOL. Although my first thought was the next time I do a Glow Run I’m going to be set! I wore the pink the other day for fun and I got tons of compliments on it. People totally thought it was cute! It isn’t overly bold when not worn in a UV setting. Haven’t tried it yet in my hair, so we’ll see when I give it a go.

LIQUILIGHTS GLOW GLOSS – Liquilights Glow Gloss sparkles brilliantly during the day and illuminates under UV black light after dark. Enriched with natural oils and vitamin E to keep your lips soft and hydrated all day and all night.

ROCK ME NAIL KIT, featuring NEON UV-REACTIVE Nail Varnish and UV-REACTIVE GLITTER nail toppings that add even more sizzle to your mani. Sprinkle the glitter over wet polish for a subtle accent, or go for the glitz and dip your entire wet mani in mega-watt sparkle!

 

These glitter pods are interesting, because it is literally loose glitter sitting in a little pot. you sprinkle it over your wet nails. It’s basically like elementary school all over again where you have to pour the glitter on over a piece of paper. Then you have to bend the paper and dump it back in the pot. So, its not easy and a little time consuming but its pretty cute. It covers really evenly but you definitely have to put clear polish over the top because it will come right off. I forgot about this and within the hour the glitter was gone.

The actual glitter polish is really awesome though, it has great coverage and can be worn alone, instead of as an overlay. The blue polish is kind of watery so it takes several coats (probably close to four) to get a solid color. These are heavy polishes at all. I’m not really sure how I feel about that considering most of the polish I like and use is the complete opposite of that. This set will run you about $16.50 at Macy’s.

Makeup by One Direction arrived in stores November 15th! and can be found in Macy’s, Dillards, Lord & Taylor, Boscov’s, Stage Stores and Beauty Brands.

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.
