How about a little something to make you stand out under the black lights at the club this New Year’s Eve? This makeup collection by One Direction isn’t for the faint at heart, but it’s perfect for those who like a bold look, and of course for my tween daughter and her friends who think One Direction is the jam.
Let’s start with the Electro Glam Mascara. Three shades, including:
- Story of My Life: amped canary yellow
- Does He Know?: pinkest hot pink
- Why Don’t We Go There?: shock of blue
These super-pigmented mascaras work on lashes, brows, and hair. Lashes took about two coats to really show up, and brows only needed one. I used a cotton swab with makeup remover to clean up my brows. Same principle applies to your hair – take one small section and run the mascara wand through it. Washes out in your next shampoo.
Liquilights Glow Gloss also come in three shades:
- Through the Dark: electric glitter poppy lip gloss that glows to neon red-orange under UV light
- Kiss You: orange glitter rush lip gloss that glows to neon yellow under UV light
- Taken: powerhouse glitter pink lip gloss that glows to neon orange under UV light
These are much brighter than I expected them to be! Usually gloss is just a hint of color, but these stand out as some of the more pigmented glosses I’ve seen. The wear is about what you get out of any gloss – you need to carry it with you for retouching.
The Rock Me Nail Kit includes three polishes and three glitters. Shades include:
- Happily– UV iced blue glitter
- Moments– UV neon pink
- Diana– UV 3D holographic
And the glitters are:
- Kicks– UV snow cone blue
- Not afraid– UV electrified pink glitter
- Star— UV holo glitter
The polishes are a jelly finish, which I love. Unfortunately, they don’t have the coverage that I would prefer, but if you put the glitter over, you won’t even notice. Because I did a accent nail with the glitter, the polish stood out as being rather thin.
To use the glitter, just sprinkle it over wet polish. Do it over a wastebasket or paper towel, because the glitter will go everywhere. Like all glitter everywhere.
I’m told, with much conviction, that these sets would be very popular with the 10-13 crowd. My daughter, who is clearly an expert in trends (she can do a better cat eye than me) at 11, thinks the glow in the dark aspect is pretty cool.
One Direction Makeup Kits are available at Macy’s, Dillards, Boscov’s, Stage Stores, Beauty Brands, and Lord & Taylor, since November 15, 2014.
