New Makeup by One Direction kits

Hi, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving/long weekend! I spent much of mine sick in bed. Thankfully, I’m feeling much better now, so I have some fantastic new kits from Markwins and Makeup by One Direction to share with you today!

There are three kits: Electroglam Mascara, a set of three vivid eye and hair mascaras; Liquilights Glow Gloss, three pretty lip glosses; and Rock Me Nail Varnish, a set of three nail polishes and three coordinating loose glitters.

The Electroglam mascara includes three shades that can be worn either on the eyelashes or hair. Why Don’t We Go There? is a bright, Smurf blue. Does He Know? is a vivid creamy pink, and Story of My Life is an intense canary yellow. These are a little drier in texture. Also, the blue and the yellow both stained my arm a bit, so definitely watch out for that if you have a lighter hair color.

The Liquilights Glow Gloss set includes three shades as well. Kiss You is a light tangerine orange with iridescent glitter which glows yellow under UV/black light. Taken is a hot pink gloss with the same glitter, and it glows orange. Through the Dark (my favorite of these shades) is a poppy pink gloss, same glitter, that glows red-orange. The glow is strongest on Through the Dark, but they all glow very nicely.

All three shades applied very well with the traditional doe foot applicator. They’re sticky enough to last pretty well for a gloss, but they don’t feel goopy at all. They do also leave behind a fair amount of the glitter when they do wear away.

The Rock Me Nail Varnish set contains three polishes – from left to right: Happily, Moments, and Diana – and three loose glitters – from L to R: Kicks, Not Afraid, and Star. For each swatch picture, I did three coats of the polish, and then I used each loose glitter on a single nail by just sprinkling it on and lightly brushing off the excess. I didn’t have any issues with application for any of these, but these polishes are sheer jellies, which means they can be finicky depending on any number of factors.

Also, I did not use any base or top coat for my swatches.

Happily is a bright cobalt blue jelly. You can still see VNL after three coats, so if that bothers you, I’d suggest using undies. I think it’d be a fabulous color for jelly sandwiches, actually. Kicks is a light cornflower blue glitter that has a bit of iridescence/holo to it. Not Afraid is a very bright hot pink, and Star (my fave loose glitter) is a pale pink holo glitter.

First off, sorry about the diamond covering part of my pinky. This was the last swatch I did, and somehow, I managed to take a chunk off the corner without realizing it until I went to edit pics. 😦 Anyway. Moments is a bright pink jelly. This color just screams summer at me.

Diana has fine holo silver bar glitter and tiny silver glitter in a clear base. Without a doubt, this is hands-down my absolute favorite polish in this set. It might actually be one of my top ten favorite polishes ever! The silver is soft but it’s still so sparkly. I also love how it tones down the loose glitters just a bit. It makes them all seem more sophisticated.

I think these kits would make great stocking stuffers for the 1D fan in your life! In fact, my niece LOVES them and has already laid claim to the mascara and lip gloss sets. 😉 Makeup by One Direction can be found at the following stores:
