..::Product Review::.. Makeup by One Direction Limited Edition Beauty Collection

My Review of the Makeup by One Direction Limited Edition Beauty Collection

What is it exactly?

     From the website. . .
"A range of makeup and cosmetic products celebrating youth, style, and the uninhibited lifestyle of a new generation. Celebrating life with bold shades, unique formulae and infused with limited edition collectible packaging, Makeup from One Direction is fun, bold, often irreverent, with a touch of cheeky mischievousness. Offered at prices that every girl and woman can afford."

I was sent a tin featuring Louis and a tin featuring Niall from Markwins International promoting their new Limited Edition Beauty Collections. There are (5) Limited Edition tins available (1 for each band member).

Each tin in this collection is available from $12.98 from your major stores (Target, Sears, and Kmart) beginning November 15, 2014!

Packaging & Presentation

Each tin in this collection features a full-colored portrait of a band member.

The front of the tin labels the product and gives a quick preview of the contents.  The back of the tin lists the names of each product and its ingredients.  The distributor's contact information is also listed.

The side of the tin closes like a book.

When you open up the tins, the left side of each tin is decorated and signed by the band member.  Each one is different. 

...and on the other side is the actual makeup collection!

The protective plastic that covers the makeup has printed labels that let you know the names of each color in the collection. It also has an easy open tab.

If you lift up the black makeup holder, the tin is still decorated underneath.

My Personal Experience with the Makeup by One Direction Limited Edition Beauty Collection

These collections are beautiful and are definitely colors that can be used with an 'everyday' look.  Inside each collection are the following pieces:

Eye Shadows:

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

Eye Pencil: 

I Want- True matte black

Lip Gloss:

Loved You First- Bubble gum pink
One Thing- Frosted pink ice
Irresistible- Shimmered pearl
Heart Attack- Creamy rose shine

Lip Gloss Top Coat:

Over Again- Silver glitter sparkle

Nail Varnish:

Stole My Heart- Magenta pink shimmer

Alive- Multi-coloured glitter flakes

There are also two tools-- a lip brush and a sponge eyeshadow applicator.

Pros of the Makeup by One Direction Limited Edition Beauty Collection
  • All the make up comes in one tin.  No small pieces to buy separately.
  • The make up quality is higher than I expected.  I was pretty impressed with the quality of each individual piece in the set.
  • This is made by One Direction, so if you or someone you know loves this band, this will make an excellent gift!
  • You can find these in a store near you.
  • The tin can be used for other things when you are done with the makeup.
  • The colors are pretty universal, and they will work for all different eye colors, etc.

Cons of the Makeup by One Direction Limited Edition Beauty Collection
  • I would like to see the actual product names stamped on the black casing, and not the clear plastic protective cover.

I love, love, love this collection.  The colors are bold and are universal.  I also like how many different pieces come in this collection, so you can pretty much do most of your makeup with this kit.  For $12.98, the quality is phenomenal.  I'm impressed with this collection.

If you like One Direction, if you like make up, or if you like BOTH, you should check this out.  It's a great starter kit, and it'll make a great Christmas gift!
