One Direction 'The Looks Collection'

Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Hello everyone,
I am really sorry that I was gone for such a long time, but honestly, my life is so chaotic at the moment I couldn't find the time. But this isn't what the post is going to be about.

A while ago, I got asked by a certain company to review a product from their range. This product is the One Direction Makeup 'The Looks Collection'. I have written about other One Direction products in the past so I decided to write about this one as well. Sadly, the company ran out of samples so I wasn't sent one to review, but I agreed to write about it, so here I am. Trying to give you my honest review, like always. I did see them in a TK Maxx where I live and the products look alright, seem like good quality cosmetics. If I wasn't a broke student I'd definitely get one of the sets.
Also they are Limited Edition, but I'm sure that you would be able to find them online or somewhere at the bottom of TK Maxx shelves, like I did a few weeks ago.

So, there are three boxes. 'Up all Night', 'Take me Home' and the 'Midnight Memories' kit, which are named after their albums (DUHH..). So, lets go through them all separately shall we.

The pretty tin contains;  

- A lipgloss called 'Taken', I'd love the have it swatched, and I'm really sad that I can't. I really wish I could show you all. But it's a bubblegum pink, glittery lipgloss which apparently glows orange if you look at it under the UV light. Which to me seems pretty freaking cool. 
- 'I should have kissed you' lipstick, also a pink bubblegum colour. 
- 'Na Na Na' Nail polish, which somehow reminds me of a mermaid or something and that's quite awesome. It is described as 'Aqua - Blue metallic polish' 
- A 'Stand Up' eye and body crayon which can be used as an eyeshadow or eyeshadow base OR I'd personally use it to destroy the faces of my flatmates during sleepovers, by drawing different... images on their faces. 
- 'Little Black dress' mascara, I wish I could see the applicator on it, ugh. I really wish I had them sets to play around with. 
- And finally we have an eyeshadow palette, 'More than this', which is a soft pink colour, 'Gotta be you', a silver, shimmery colour, 'Save you tonight', which is also shimmery but this time its a turquoise blue shimmer, 'Another World' which is again a blue shade and 'Up All Night' which is a sapphire glitter cream shadow. 

The tin also contains stencils with which you can decorate your tin or your skin. See what I did there? Hehehehehe... 

This tin is my favourite out of all three, it contains;

- A golden lipgloss called 'Kiss You' which also changes colour in the UV light, this time it's neon yellow. I'd love to see that haha! 
- 'Last first kiss' which is an amazing looking nude-pink lipstick. I'd love to have it in my collection to be honest. Plus the packaging is just adorable. 
- 'Live While We're Young' nail varnish, the glitter in it is multi-dimentional so it isn't a boring plain glittery polish. 
- The eyeshadow stick is a chocolate brown shade, I think it looks lovely. I have looked at some swatches of it online.
- Again there is a 'Little Black Dress' mascara.
- The eyeshadow palette contains ; 'Back to you' which is a velvet creme shadow, 'Change my mind' a peachy shimmer, 'C'mon C'mon', soft taupe shade, 'Little Things' a smoky brown and 'Take Me Home' which is a golden glitter creme which I think must look amazing. 

In the box, like in the last one, there are stencils which you can use to bring out your creative side. 

The final box consists of;

-'Through The Dark' is a poppy shade, glittery lipgloss. It glows neon red in the UV light, this also I'd love to see.
- 'Best Song Ever' a crimson red lipstick, cause everyone needs a plain red lippie. Even if, like me, you look like the Joker in it, it doesn't matter. You still need it. Trust me. 
- 'Right Now' which is a black metallic nail polish. 
- 'Better Than Words' eye and body crayon. 
- Again, the 'Little Black Dress' mascara.
- Eyeshadow palette is a mix of 'Little White Lies', which is a pale gray colour, 'Dont Forget Where You Belong' it is a soft pink shimmery shadow, 'Half a Heart', a metal grey, 'Strong', which is a must have shade for anyone really, a matte black charcoal shade shadow, and last is 'Midnight Memories', which is a silver creme shadow. 

Plus the stencils. 

And this is it! All three boxes have been summerized, for swatches I'm afraid you will have to go to other beauty blogs, which I am quite upset about haha. I did all I could, and I know that this is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own. The boxes might be mostly sold out but I checked online, like ebay or things like that and they're still there, so you should be able to find them there. 
I hope you liked this rather weird post, see you in my next one ( which I hope will be out very soon!)

Much love,

Sleek 'Storm' Palette Review...

Monday, February 02, 2015
   Hello my darlings!
Yes, yes. Boo me for being gone for like a month. This time, I don't have a reasonable explanation as to why I was gone (surprise surprise). Laziness maybe? Or because I wasn't feeling all that great, and I'm not talking about a cold or anything like that. 

But dun dun dunnnn... I am back! Please, contain your excitement. 

I have also been gone on my YouTube, and my video (CLICK HERE TO WATCH) looks rather lonely being there all by itself on my channel, so I decided too upload a new video today.  Not sure which one yet, because I have filmed a few. Or maybe I'll edit them all and add one each day. Hmm.. That'd be nice wouldn't it? I don't know yet, I shall see. Ah.. ALSO I am so so soo happy so see that my Facebook page has reached 10.000 likes! I have abandoned it also and I'm so so sorry about that, I kinda took a break from social media, except Instagram of course..(#InstaFoLyfe)

But! I promise I'll do a better job at being a blogger, and a vlogger.. I have a list of when and what social platform I will upload a new post on and I'll stick to it as much as possible. 

Now.. Onto the Palette..
Three words...


I think this is enough. 

But seriously, I knew of those babies since I got hooked on KatOsu makeup tutorials on YouTube, but my local stores never sold Sleek, bummer. I think Ireland overall didn't really carry Sleek. Thank the makeup Gods for bringing Sleek into Ireland. Many Irish bloggers appreciate it, I am sure. I mean I could buy it online, but then I'd have to wait for the order to get here and that is just torture to me. 

So what do I think of it? 

That pigmentation!!
I am actually scared to use the darker shades, because I have gotten the black eye shadow all over my face once. The shimmery shadows are beautiful, I honestly can't find the words to describe this palette. This probably makes me sound like some makeup crazed chick, which I admit I am, not super crazy though, I promise. But yeah, this is a total going out palette. The shadows would look great under some fluorescent lights. The shimmer is beautiful and I really think that any girl would love it. And every girl should own it! If you can't get it message me and I'll get it for you (ha ha jokes, I'm broke, but you get the idea)

So here are a few pics of the palette and some swatches which are shown on my sisters arm (Thank you for letting me use your arm hun) and sorry for the Christmassy background, I took these pictures last year actually. So I hope you like it!
