I got my hands on the MIDNIGHT MEMORIES set which has an eyeshadow palette, a lipstick, a lipgloss, a chubby eyeliner, mascara, nail polish and stencils. I'm wearing the makeup in all of these pictures bellow and must say that I'm pretty impressed with it! My first impresion was, "Oh, this makeup has some bold, bright colors in it, and I won't be able to wear this on an everyday basis". As you can see in the photos I was totally wrong! Their makeup is amazing, and even though the colors look like a disco ball, the makeup goes on very light.
EYE SHADOW PALETTE
The silver shimmer is almost not noticeable with one layer unless you're standing in the sun, or apply a thick layer of it. I love that the eye shadow palette comes with gray and black to create a smoky eye, and pink to smooth it down. I applied all the colors as you can see in the picture. I used the light white as a base, pink under my eyebrows and around eye corner, silver in the middle of my eyelid and gray with black into my eye crease for some drama. Overall the eye shadow palette is pigment-rich, creamy and absolutely amazing!
LIPSTICK / LIP-GLOSS
Best song ever - bright, creamy red lipstick. This lipstick is very creamy, therefore easy to apply! I'm not huge on bright red lips and wish that this kit comes with a more natural lipstick, or slight pink to match with the pink eye shadow on the palette.
One of the highlights is Lquilights Glow Gloss in the shade of pink. Lipgloss is fabulous, very creamy with a kind of sweet smell to it, and is UV-reactive and will glow under black light! I absolutely love this lipgloss!!!
This kit comes with metallic and silver glitter flakes, dark gray nail polish. One layer of this stunning color is about medium light, and I have on two layers in the picture. I was surprised how quickly this nail polish dried and how long it lasted without chipping. Polish usually last 1-2 days on my nails because I work a lot with my hands, but this one started chipping on day three, and I didn't even have a top coat on. In my opinion this nail polish is equal to O.P.I., if not better!
CHUBBY EYE AND BODY CRAYON/ STENCILS
Crayon glides on smoothly, but for me is to chunky to apply as an eyeliner. For the ones who love chubby eyeliner this would be the perfect crayon. I would prefer to use it as an eye shadow or body art! The Midnight Memories kit comes with few stencils laying inside small, black paper box. I love the designs and if I owned a gold eyeliner you would probably see me applying some of the designs in gold either on my neck, face or arms!
"Little Black Dress mascara" is how it's called. This mascare will darken up and define your lashes! The wand is great and doesn't make your lashes stick together when applying it! After a whole day of wearing this mascara, my lashes stayed the same without loosing any color on the top, but I had a little smear under my lower eye lid. Overall I'm happy to have this mascara because it will doll up your lashes and that's what I'm looking for!
I'm very pleased with this kit. One Direction makeup is meant to be for teenage girls, but with the right amount of mixing these colors I think anyone can wear this fabulous makeup! I know I will!!!
The tins retail for $28.50, which is just under $5 for each makeup item in the kit.
Let's get to the exciting part! Even if you're not sure this makeup is the one for you, I'm pretty sure there's someone in your family or maybe just a friend who would absolutely love this product. So go ahead and enter this fabulous Giveaway!
