Makeup by ONE DIRECTION Limited-Edition Beauty Tins Collection Photos, Swatches, and Review


Created for—and inspired by—fans of the world’s biggest band, this limited-edition beauty collection is fun, bold 1and a tad mischievous, just like ONE DIRECTION.

I must say I do enjoy the 1D songs I’ve heard on the radio, and I must also admit that I’ve gotten 1 or 2 stuck in my head, as well. I’m not a crazy fan at all, but I can see why young girls and older ones, too, are HUGE fans of these 5 pop stars. When I was given the opportunity to try the Makeup by One Direction, I was really excited because I knew it would be young and hip, and although, I am in my 30s, I still feel like a cool, young, and hip Mommy, and I like to wear makeup like that, so this was exciting for me. And, also proof, that women of all ages can totally pull off looks from these LIMITED EDITION tins! Shall we get on with it?!


Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson

Starting off with the eyeshadows. These are just stunning! I love eyeshadows with a pattern because they are easy to apply and have a beautiful dimension to them.

Nobody Compares- Metallic silver

Tell Me A Lie- Metallic nude pink (this could also be used as a gorgeous highlight on the face or inner corners of the eyes)

Same Mistakes- Metallic mint



L-R: Nobody Compares, Tell Me a Lie, Same Mistakes

I Would- Smokey brown shimmer

Summer Love- Smokey purple haze

Everything About You- Smokey black shimmer



For my eyes, I used the metallic silver, Nobody Compares, on the lid and also dragged it out into the crease. Then, I coated the lid with Summer Love, a smokey purple haze and also brought that out into the crease. Dabbing a little of Nobody Compares (metallic silver) to the center of the lid, I tapped into Everything About You, smokey black shimmer, as well, onto the ends and outer crease. Then, finished off with a little of Same Mistakes (metallic mint) over Everything About You (smokey black shimmer). I finished off with Milani Enchanted Lapis Gel Liner on the lashline and Benefit They’re Real Mascara.


On lips is One Thing, frosted pink ice lipgloss

The Eye Pencil, I Want, is described as a True matte black, but to me, it looked more of a charcoal grey.


Next, the Lip Glosses. I used a lip brush to apply these because I wanted precision. At first sight, I was really thrilled with the colors. After application, I was definitely impressed with the colors and formula (super creamy and felt comfortable to wear), as well. My favorites are definitely Loved You First and Heart Attack – such gorgeous colors! Take a look:

Loved You First- Bubble gum pink



One Thing- Frosted pink ice




Irresistible – Creamy Rose Shine



Heart Attack- Shimmered Pearl




All the lipglosses on the arm, shown below:


L-R: Loved You First, One Thing, Irresistible, Heart Attack

Lip Gloss Top Coat, Over Again, is described as a Silver glitter sparkle, but I could barely get it to show up, which was disappointing, as it would have added dimension to the lipglosses.



There are also 2 small bottles of Nail Varnish. These performed well, but since the bottles are mini sizes, the brushes are also quite short, but they fan out wide enough to polish the nails properly in one stroke. I used 3 coats for opacity.

Stole My Heart – Magenta pink shimmer

Alive – Multi-coloured glitter flakes, 1 coat seen over Stole My Heart on the middle finger.


These new sets are available in stores November 15th at:
Sears USA
Walmart Canada

Overall, I was truly impressed with the quality of the makeup and nail lacquers. I also wore the eyeshadows throughout the entire day, and it did not crease or fade (and this is without primer). I did, however, notice a lot of fall out (during application), but that can be prevented by tapping out the brush before application and also doing the eye makeup first and foremost, so that you don’t have to redo your foundation/blush/highlight. These would be perfect little gifts for Christmas or any other holidays coming up!
