As you all know I hosted a giveaway last week for the release of the Make Up by One Direction launch. I will be honest and say I was a bit nervous to actually try all of these products because the market is clearly for someone who is younger than me, BUT I was SO surprised at how much I loved the products in the Take Me Home tin!
The tin itself is a nice box to hold all your make up. You don't need to necessarily keep everything in there (which I didn't) but for any One Direction fan it's a nice keepsake.
The eye shadow and eye pencil were great - totally up my alley in terms of products and color palettes I would buy for myself already. On the inside of the tin they give you different looks to try out with the eye shadow and pencil.
The nail polish is also so so fun! It's sheer enough of a glitter that it can be used as a top coat over a gold or even pink polish, or as you can see on my Instagram I used it to do a glitter ombre.
The products I was most unsure of was the lip gloss and the lipstick because they are BRIGHT when you open the package, and also when they are photographed...
BUT THEY WERE MY FAVORITE THINGS EVER!
I swear - they are NOT this insane once they are on your lips. And against my better judgment I decided some selfies were in order to prove to you all how fantastic these are, especially that pink lip color.
SEE! totally not scary!
PSSHHHH and the gloss - BEST GLOSS EVER!
I swear, I am probably going to make this lipstick/lipgloss combo my go to combo for every day use. And I will probably be really sad once they run out because they are really awesome. The lipstick has tons of moisture so alone it's great as well.
The one things I unfortunately will never use is the stencils the tin comes with. They are meant to be used with the shadow or the eye pencil for body art - and let's face it at the ripe old age of 28 I feel that I am past my body art prime. But they are cool for any of you young souls out there that want to give it a whirl.
My overall impression of the One Direction "Take Me Home" Tin - two thumbs up! Great quality and lots of fun for any One Direction fan.
The tins are in stores now at Macy's!
