Calling All Directioners!!! One Direction has once again released a new limited makeup tin collection. This line was officially launched on the 15th of November. These new sets are available at:

Sears USA
Target and
Walmart Canada
If you are a big fan of One Direction then go ahead and pick up your limited edition tin with your favorite band member image embedded and signature. This limited makeup tin houses 6 eye shadows that are named after One Direction tracks, 4 lip gloss, 2 nail varnishes, 1 eye pencil and 1 lip gloss top coat.

Make Up by One Direction was created for and inspired by fans of the world’s biggest band, this limited edition beauty collection is fun, bold and tad mischievous, just like ONE DIRECTION.

There are five limited edition tins available for sale, each tin has the same products, the only differences are the colour scheme used, the cute doodles and thoughts of each band member and diagrams showing directions on where to apply the eyeshadows, lip gloss etc.

This limited edition is a blue colour and it features Liam, his picture is on the front and his signature is on the inside. He has some really cute girly doodles drawn on the inside. The idea of these doodles will draw any girls attention. If you are new to applying makeup, as most young girls are a diagram of an eye will lead you unto applying these products that are in the tin. Have fun while using them.

This limited edition tin that features Zayn is of reddish pink colour that has some really cute doodles for eg. a rainbow, heart, bird, rose etc. It also instructs on how to use the products from the tin. The diagram of the eye shows where you can apply the Tell Me A Lie to your brow bone, the rose is also made from a colour swatch of the Irresistible Lip Gloss.

From L-R with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk: I Would, Nobody Compares, Summer Love, Tell Me A Lie, Everything About You and Some Mistakes

To get the best uses out of these eyeshadows I would recommend for it to be used with a primer or NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils.

The lip glosses are very soft and smooth, not cakey and hard, easy to apply, creamy, moisturizing and a mixture of vibrant and pale colours.
Loved You First is a bubblegum pink shade that is highly pigmented in the palette you might want to apply more than once to get the pigmentation on your lips, it also has a satin finish and it is moisturizing.
One Thing can be described as a frosted pink ice, it kinda looks white on my lips with a bit of shimmer.
Irresistible is a shimmered rose pearl that glides on perfectly to lips, it’s like a tinted lip balm with a satin finish.
Heart Attack is being described as creamy rose shine but it look slightly champagne/pearl/nude somewhere along those colours.

Lip Gloss: LOVED YOU FIRST – Bubble Gum Pink, ONE THING – Frosted Pink Ice, IRRESISTABLE – Shimmered Pearl, HEART ATTACK – Creamy Rose Shine


Lip Gloss Swatch: LOVED YOU FIRST – Bubble Gum Pink, ONE THING – Frosted Pink Ice, IRRESISTABLE – Shimmered Pearl, HEART ATTACK – Creamy Rose Shine & Lip Gloss Top Coat: OVER AGAIN – Silver Glitter


Nail Varnish: ALIVE – Multi-coloured glitter flakes & STOLE MY HEART – Magenta pink shimmer

The nail varnish brush cover which is a square shape made application of the nail polish felt a little awkward, it covered all my nail and I could hardly see exactly what I am doing. The nail varnish dries fast and it can get a little lumpy through applications. To get a full coverage 2 coats is needed, the colour is a true magenta pink shimmer that looks cute on my nails. I would suggest to use ALIVE – Multi coloured glitter flakes as a top coat even though it looks cute alone, only thing is the brush hardly picks up enough of the glitter. The nail varnish dries to a soft sheen, so it may or might not be good to use as a top coat if you are looking for that extra sheen. These colours are cute I definitely will wear them….

Lip Gloss Top Coat: OVER AGAIN – Silver glitter sparkle

I have never seen or heard of a lip gloss top coat, so this is kinda new to me. This lip gloss top coat appears clear with silver glitter sparkles. It can be use to add sheen to your lip gloss after applying. It can also be used after applying lipsticks to get that glossy lip pout with added shimmer.

Eye Pencil: I WANT – True Matte Black


Accessories: Lip Brush and Sponge Applicator

This limited edition kit by One Direction is easy to carry around, very compact only thing missing is a mascara. This keepsake tin with your favorite band member can also be used as a collectible for storing your small items. The eye shadows and lip gloss pans are also retractable, so that it can be use or stored in a magnetic makeup palette.
