If you’ve been following my Makeup by One Direction posts over the past year, you’ve probably noticed this brand has become one of my favorite new offerings for the tween and teen beauty market. The One Direction Tour Case is the coup de grâce, the perfect touch to tie together the whole collection. You’ll also remember it from my Christmas picks, where some readers had the chance to win a case of their very own.
I wanted to mention it again and give a deeper look at the contents, because if you missed it over the holidays, this would make an awesome spring birthday gift. It’s definitely something any 1D fan will want before the warm weather gets here and all the tours and music festivals start. Featuring 45 shades of eyeshadow- just to begin with! – this box will be the source of endless looks and glamorous inspiration.
The shadows range from shimmer, matte and creme to full blown glitter, The shimmers have everything from pale highlights like the silvery Spark and the copper-ish Sequin, to bold pink Poseur, to the electrically charged Glacial blue. The mattes are slightly more subdued as in the lavender Harmony and terra-cotta orange Dusk, but still bold with colors like the dark green Irish Luck and oceanic Surfer Blue. The glitters shine like the open sky in shades from the silver Cityscape and white Lightening to the dusky pink Twilight, deep blue Summer Rain and glimmering black Galaxy.
Two eye pencils in Strobe white and After Midnight black can highlight or smudge to a deep smoky-eyed perfection. To finish off your eye look, or to help highlight your hair, they include Electroglam Hair & Lash Mascara in Powerhouse Purple.
There are three nail colors included, white Strobe, black Street Punk and shocking pink Rebel, along with three chunky glitter confetti top coats: Blue A Fuse, black Graffiti and pink Star Struck. For your lips we have two Rock Star Jumbo Lip Crayons in Red Handed and Power Pink. One of my favorite aspects of the 1D makeup has been the UV-reactive items. Here they’ve included the UV-reacting Liquilights Glow Gloss in Backstage. They’ve also included two UV glitters: orange Voltage and pink Shock. There’s a cute and handy little UV light so you can see what your finished look will be before you get out on the dance floor.
The case itself is my favorite part and what helps lend rock-star appeal to this collection. How sweet is it to have your very on makeup tour case? If you’ve been collection the other One Direction makeup as it’s been released, you’ll have plenty of room to store it all inside. The sturdy case is black with silver trim. It latches at the top and folds out to open completely. Inside are two stacking trays which fold upward on metal hinges, leaving a nice storage space for larger items underneath. They’ve included two pages of heavy-duty stickers from your favorite states and countries that you can apply to the outside of the case to give it an authentic world tour effect.
