Make Up by One Direction Review

 Makeup by One Direction Up All Night
I'm super excited to share this with you guys. I got the opportunity to review one of the collections from One Directions limited edition makeup line. As some of you might already know, I'm a huge One Direction fan so this was a pretty big deal for me. I'm extremely thankful for this opportunity. 

The makeup collections are inspired by their albums Up All Night, Take Me Home, and Midnight Memories. I received the Up All Night collection*. I think I might get the other two collections because I'm really happy with the quality.

One of my favorite items in this collection is the eyeshadow palette. I really like that it has both shimmery bright and neutral colors. I do wish they would have included one matte shade though. The shades are all named after songs on their first album, Up All Night. "More Than This" is a soft pink, "Save You Tonight" is a shimmering turquoise blue, "Up All Night" is a sapphire glitter creme,"Another World" is a royal blue shimmer and "Gotta Be You" is a silvered taupe shimmer. All of the colors are very pigmented. They show up on skin the same exact way they look in the package. I haven't had the chance to wear all of the colors yet, but I did do a smokey eye using "Up All Night" and it lasted all night. I'm very happy with the quality of the eyeshadows!

The next item in the collection is lipgloss called "Taken". It's a glitter pink lipgloss that glows to neon orange under UV black light. I honestly don't think I'll wear this because I don't really care for bright pink lip colors. But I might wear it if I were going to a rave.

"I Should Have Kissed You" is a cute bubblegum pink lipstick. I don't think it's the right shade for me so I probably won't be wearing it unless I mix it with another color. But as far as the quality of the lipstick, it's very creamy and moisturizing.

My other favorite in this collection is the nail varnish called "Na Na Na". It is a gorgeous aqua-blue metallic color. I actually painted my nails this color the day I got the package. Despite the massive chipping shown above, it did last a little while. I painted my nails about a week and a half ago and it didn't start really chipping until about 3 days ago. Normally my nail polishes start to chip after about 2 days. I also like that it's quick drying. But one thing I noticed about quick drying nail polishes is that they tend to be really thin. So you need to do about 3-4 coats. I had to do 3 coats with this color. It wasn't a hassle though because it didn't take long to dry. 

There are two other things in the collection that I aren't pictured because my camera wouldn't work. If I can get it to work, I'll definitely add pictures. Of course, there is a mascara. No makeup collection would be complete without it. The mascara is named "Little Black Dress". 
I noticed this was the only item that wasn't named after a song on their album, Up All Night. It's actually song on their most recent album, Midnight Memories. The mascara is pretty good. Although I have to admit that it isn't super volumizing.The last item is called "Stand Up" and it is a dark blue chubby eye and body crayon. It can be worn as liner, shadow, or body art. I used it as a liner and loved it. It goes on very smooth so it's really easy to do winged liner with.

Style Icon: Vanessa Hudgens

I feel like my style has really evolved over these past few years. I say evolved because it hasn't completely changed. I still like the same things as before but now I like a wider variety. I've always been really into the whole boho style, but I honestly felt like I was too fat to pull it off. I felt like because of my shape and size it wouldn't be flattering. But I recently decided to get over that. I'm going to dress the way I want to. Whether it's "flattering" or not. Life is too short not to wear what makes you happy.So now I'm in the process of reinventing my wardrobe. I've already started buying some boho style pieces. And all of those pieces are the things I feel the happiest and prettiest in. I think that's a pretty good sign that I've found my personal style. If you guys know of any affordable stores that sell cute boho clothes and accessories. Asos and Forever 21 are my go to places right now. I LOVE Free People and Jen's Pirate Booty, but I can't afford anything from there. #Broke 

So I'm in love with Vanessa. I seriously love everything she wears. Her style is PERFECTION. I've been getting a lot of my outfit ideas from her lately. I love that she wears a lot of boho but still wears other styles too. That's exactly how my style is. I don't like to only wear one type of style all the time. It's nice to change it up. Sometimes I like to wear kimonos and flower crowns. Other times I like to wear beanies and sneakers. Even though I truly believe that boho is my personal style, I don't think I'll ever only wear that style. It's just the style I'll wear most of the time.

Who's your style icon?
