Take Me Home Collection Review | Makeup By One Direction

Wednesday, September 24

By now I'm sure you've heard of this popular boy band, but have you hear about their new makeup line that's exclusively sold at Macy's? No? Don't worry if you haven't because I'm going to break down each product in One Direction's Limited Edition Take Me Home Collection*. Which products were hits, and which ones were the misses? I can't wait to share with you guys my opinion :)

"Kiss You" Liquilights Glow Gloss - Orange glitter rush lip gloss that glows to neon yellow under UV light

- 4+1 Eye Shadow Palette in the perfect nude shades:
"Back For You" (velvet crème), "Change My Mind" (peachy shimmer), "C'mon C'mon" (soft taupe), "Little Things" (smoky brown), "Take Me Home" (golden glitter crème)

"Last First Kiss" - nude-pink sheer lipstick

"Little Black Dress" - volumizing mascara in perfectly black

"Live While We're Young" - multi-dimensional gold glitter nail varnish

"I Wish" - a warm chocolate brown eye and body crayon

- Includes 5 piece decorator stencil set! Decorate yourself, your stuff, your friends with One Direction doodles.

As for the packaging, I really liked how they kept it masculine with the brick case and black packaging. I also like how they gave you a little thing on the side showing you how you all the different makeup looks you could create. But enough about the packaging, let's talk about the products individually. ^.^

Do you know that feeling when you see a gorgeous lipstick and instantly want to try it? Well that's what happened I saw Last First Kiss for the first time. I instantly wanted to give it a try, but after applying it I realized how poor the quality was. You see, the key components of a "good" lipstick were missing (which is longevity, opaqueness, and a pleasant scent), and without these key elements the lipstick was a major dud.

 As for the lip gloss, I was a little intimidated by the orange-y hue, but it turned out to be really pretty and looks nice over a lipstick or lip stain. At first I didn't know were I could wear it but after some thought I realized it would be perfect for Halloween since the lip gloss glows in the dark :)

Now for my favorite category, the eyes! I really liked most of the items in this category but let's start off with my favorite, the mascara. I like using the Little Back Dress mascara because of its long sturdy wand, and jet black formula. It's the perfect product if you're the type of girl who loves a lengthening high quality  mascara.

As for the second eye product, I had a little bit of a struggle trying applying the 4-in-1 Eye shadow because it wasn't opaque. At first I thought it was because of my dark complexion, but that theory went out the door when my old sister (who is a lighter than me) couldn't wear it either. So if you're looking forward to using this particular product I highly suggest using a eye shadow base before otherwise you might be disappointed like we were.

Next we have the Live While We're Young nail varnish. I liked this top coat because the gold glitter matches any manicure and its perfect for fall. I also like how bottle is square and reminds me of popular nail polish brand (ahem, *coughs* called butter LONDON, *cough, cough*), but let's move on to body stencils. These paper cut outs were added to the kit to"decorate yourself, your stuff, or your friends!" And sure because body art becoming huge deal. The only downside I experienced was how the I Wish Body Crayon didn't show up on my dark skin tone (once again, haha). But this issue was a easy once I decided to use the gold eye shadow instead. The only thing that I don't understand is why they added it into a makeup kit, but oh well...

Overall Experience    

♥♥♡♡ 2/5
I enjoyed the idea of this makeup collection, but the overall quality reminds me of ELF products. Sure, ELF is amazing, but this item sold exclusively at Macy's (and other top department stores). And since Macy's is know for selling high brands I was a little disappointed when I found out this makeup kit has the quality of drugstore makeup.

Remember, this is just my opinion and who knows, maybe these products will work perfectly for you. unfortunately, this wasn't the case for me :\

Lol, I dislike ending a post on a negative note, so before you go which product would you like to try the most? The lash lengthening mascara or gold nail varnish? :)
