I recently had the opportunity to partner with Markwins to help launch One Direction’s makeup collection named the Looks Collection. The Looks Collection by One Direction will be a limited edition set that will be release worldwide, however the collection will hit the U.S. and Canada consumer markets starting August the 11th and 25th. The Looks Collection is a makeup enthusiasts dream, because it comes complete with head to nails products. The collection was curated with style, playfulness, a little bit of edge, some sophistication and a lot of sass in mind.
The Looks Collection was not only created with those qualities in mind, but One Direction working with Markwins has created a collection that paid close attention to detail right down to the index card. The packaging for the Looks Collection is bold, daring,fun and a true collectors prize to have. For me there is no one product in the Looks Collection that I do not fancy. The quality in my opinion is amazing from the packaging all the way to each product in the collection.
So, jumping right into what the Looks Collection has to offer each individual who purchases. As I have mentioned this collection is a complete makeup collection.
The question that might be swirling around is the collection looks great, but is it really worth it? and my answer to the question is, is that the Looks Collection in my opinion is definitely worth the money. Another question maybe, well who would the Look Collection be suitable for? and my answer to that question is anyone who loves good quality fun versatile make up,and liking One Direction is just the bonus to purchasing this collection.
Getting into the Looks Collection, the first product that I used from the collection was this fun, daring, and sassy pink lipstick named “I Should Have Kissed You”. The color is a true candy bubble gum pink. The lipstick gives a matte finish that is extremely pigmented. As I had mentioned in this review post the packaging of the makeup in the Looks Collection is impeccable, there is brick detailed work etched on the lipstick case as well as with other products in the collection.
Another product from the collection was this beautiful lip gloss named “Taken” and it is a hot electric pink. Markwins has helped One Direction to create a top quality lip gloss, that is not only gorgeous in color and quality, but it is also very versatile, because it looks great on its own, or over lipstick or lip liner. The color “Taken” is a smooth lip gloss that gleams glitter.
The next product that happens to take center stage for me is this fabulous eye shadow palette. What is amazing about the Looks Collection is that the eye shadow that they created for the collection is a full-size product. Sometime when you buy a makeup collection one might get full-size products and have a small eye shadow palette, that is not really suitable for anything, but to look pretty on your vanity. Not the case with the Looks Collection, not only is the palette a great size for one to really get proper use out of it, the quality is again top-notch. The shadows are extremely pigmented. The palette contains a mixture of cream, glitter, and matte shadows. The colors are in my opinion absolutely beautiful, you almost hate to use them, because they are well made and well presented to the consumer. The eye shadows are also easy to apply.
The next fun product from the Looks collection, is the Volumizing mascara/volumisant the color that was included in my collection is named ”Little Black Dress”. There are many reasons why I favor this mascara from the collection.A few of those reasons are I love how this mascara does not clumped up on my lashes at all. I also like how easily it applies. The consistency does not tugged on your lashes. The wand on the mascara helped feather my lashes out.
The next product from the collection was this fun sea-foam blue metallic green nail varnish named ”Na Na Na”. The quality like much of the products in the Looks collection is excellent. The polish applies smooth, and does not bubble on the nails. The polish dries quiet quickly, and makes it great when you want a quick manicure. The color Na Na Na, is similar to a metallic ice blue that has a slight green and a little gold undertone. The polish is sheer, however buildable.
The next product included in the collection is the eyes and body crayon, that is named ”Stand Up”. The color is a rich navy blue, that not only does the product apply with ease it was extremely pigmented when I applied.The eye and body crayon in the color “Stand Up” was blendable, and easy to work with,whether you are applying as an eyeliner or using it in conjunction with the stencils the product earned a well deserve spot in the Looks collection. I love color it is very versatile.
Another product that was apart of the looks Collection was definitely meant to awaken ones creative side with these fun stencils. I actually in my opinion loved this little added extra. The set included five stencils.
And that was everything that was included in the Looks Collection by One Direction “Up All Night” limited edition set. I thought the collection was fun and well curated. All I can say is parents get ready to shovel out the green to get this kit for your daughters and girls get the list of chores out to complete to earn the money. There are three amazing kits to choose from “Up All Night, Midnight Memories”, and ” Take Me Home”. the toughest choice is choosing one, but again why just choose one, when you can have them all.
