Introducing the One Direction Midnight Memories Makeup Collection

Each of the three available sets in the Look Collection are in a collectible metal box with a hinged lid.  Above you see everything that is housed in the tin.  In the picture below, opening the tin will reveal the makeup and suggestions for different looks on the inner lid.

Each collection contains an eye and body pencil, an eyeshadow quintet, a lipgloss, a lipstick, mascara, a coordinating nail polish and a package of stencils.  You can use the stencils for body or nail art!!

Onto the makeup products!!!!  First let me tell you about the eyeshadow palette.  The one I received in the Midnight Memories Collection is just awesome!!!!!!!  I apologize that I don't have pictures before swatching.  I thought I did, but ooops, my bad, I was wrong.

It's so pretty that I wanted to include two pictures as the light hits the colors slightly differently in each picture.  If you click on them, you can view them larger.

The palette containes a light satin grey, the prettiest shimmery pinky peach I've ever seen, a shimmering gunmetal grey and a deeper dark satin greyed black.  In the middle of the palette is a creme grey shade that can be either patted in the middle of the eye for shine or used with the stencils for body art.

The picture below shows swatches of the shadow palette plus the Better Than Words black body and eye crayon.  I used the crayon and the grey creme shade with the stencils to put lightening bolts on my hand on the left side.  It's really a pretty color of nearly holographic grey/silver.

I won't lie to you.  They all applied very smoothly.  The black pencil set up fairly well, but my stencil using it was a bit thick and as I worked throughout the night, I eventually had a little smudging.  Honestly, I expected more.  It really help up pretty well.  I had two teenaged young men with me and begged them to be my stencil models, but alas, I was on my own.  It's not easy to stencil a hand by yourself.  It's much easier to do it on your face.  :)

The set also contains Little Black Dress, a black volumizing mascara.  You can see the wand below.

Best Song Ever is a wonderful crimson red creme lipstick.  SO PRETTY!!!  It's the perfect red!

All of the items in the One Direction makeup kit have accents that look like brick, which matches the tins that they are sold in.  Check out the lid to the lipstick!

The lipgloss in the set is named Through The Dark.  It is called a "Liquilights Glow Gloss - Electric glitter poppy lipgloss that glows to neon red-orange under UV light".  Cool!

Below, (and as seen on my hand above), are the swatches of the lip colors.

Finally, I am arriving at the nail polish.  Right Now is described as a liquified metallic steel nail polish.  That's pretty accurate.  I'm wearing two coats in the picture, but I could easily have gotten away with one.

The polish is smooth and self-leveling.  It has flecks of shimmer.  It's just really really pretty.  I like it.
