If you’ve been following my One Direction posts, you know I’ve been awaiting the launch of their awesome new makeup line in great anticipation. Well, my little kittens, the wait is over! The Looks Collection by One Direction is now officially available at Macy’s.
If you’ve been on summer vacation on Mars or something and missed all the excitement, The Looks Collection includes three keepsake tins, each one with its own personality based on a different 1D album.
I’m going to recap my unboxing review of the tin I received and then at the bottom of the post I have another exciting announcement for you! Hold onto your bonnets, ladies.
The three tins available are “Take Me Home”, “Up All Night” and “Midnight Memories.” From sweet girl next door, to life of the party, to rock n’ roll rebel, there’s a choice here to express every girl’s personality.
I’m particularly smitten with the one I got to test out: Take Me Home. I love how it comes in a slip-cased collectable metal tin. It’s a beautiful case to keep your makeup in, but long after the makeup has been used it’s also a fantastic way to store your One Direction keepsakes and mementos.
The inside of the lid features a cool diagram to give you ideas for some different eye looks to try out, complete with the name of each color to use and where.
Speaking of which, the colors are gorgeous- from wild and glittery to more smoky and subtle, they give you a wide range of options. The eyeshadow compact comes with a little two-sided brush (one sponge side and one brushy side). Back For You is going to be the backup singer for most of your looks, it’s a pale fleshtone peach. Change my mind is one of my favorites, a soft micro-glittery peachy pink that just shimmers so prettily. C’mon C’mon is a medium grayish brown to help with those smoky looks I was talking about. Little Things is a darker, truer brown, good for definition. And Take Me Home, the center star, is a chunkier glitter in pure gold. That’s my other favorite, but you kittens know I’m a glitter fiend, so no one is surprised.
The lipgloss, Kiss You is a glowing, glittery dreamsicle confection of orange and gold. This is definitely for the girl who doesn’t wanna take it slow. Only wear this if you want all his attention to be focused on your lips!
The lipstick Last First Kiss is a still bold, but slightly more traditional dark bubble gum pink. You could try layering the lipgloss on top for some wild effects!
The wide-tipped eyepencil, I Wish, is a dark brown close to Little Things and will help you complete a nice smokey eyed look.
Live While We’re Young is a disco-ball glitter explosion of gold with green and coppery highlights thrown in. Your nails are here to party while wearing this, there can be no doubt.
One of the funnest parts of the kit are these stencils. You can let your creativity go wild while placing iconic 1D symbols anywhere you like!
All together, a pretty great collection. I’m so happy they didn’t skimp on quality or design- it would have been easy to just throw some crappy makeup in a box and count on their diehard fans to buy it anyway.
I know you’re dying to get your hot little hands on one of these boxes! They are currently available at Macy’s, Stage Stores, Dillards, Beauty Brands and Lord & Taylor. But even MORE exciting, my announcement!
