You don’t know you’re beautiful – but now boy band powerhouse One Direction wants to be what makes you beautiful. Yes, Liam, we know, we don’t need makeup to cover up – but sometimes it’s just fun to play with.
That’s what this whole line is about: fun, wild, crazy makeup. And while it may be directed at their younger fans, I am totally unashamed to say that I loved playing with these kits and am integrating them into my looks. You girls know I like to get a little wild while I primp, after all.
After my harrowing encounter with pink mascara, you’d think I’d be sane enough to leave the colored stuff alone. But no. Seriously, wild mascara colors can add awesome pop to any look, particularly Vegas or New Years Eve makeup.
I’ve actually come to love blue mascara, and the one in this set is ah-mazing. The package suggests that you can make a more subtle statement by adding a pop of “colour” (oh, UK) to the tips of your lashes, but being me, I slathered this on top and bottom. I LOVE that you can also use it as a hair mascara.
- Why Don’t We Go There- electric blue
- Does He Know?- hot pink
- Story of My Life- canary yellow
LIQUILIGHTS GLOW GLOSS
Get this, chicks: Liquilights Glow Gloss sparkles brilliantly during the day and illuminates under UV black light after dark. No really – it’s glow in the dark.
The gloss can be worn alone for a pop of sparkle and color, or paired with One Direction crème lipstick for a bolder look. Personally, I filled in my lips with lip liner (remember I told you to do that?) and then applied the poppy shade on top of it. The shade lasted REALLY well (even through a coffee or three).
My very first thought for this was, how many billions of clubs and parties in Vegas or on New Years Eve have those lights? This is totally making its way into my New Year’s Eve makeup look. Then at midnight, you can say yeayeayeahhh and let him kiss you! (Are you sick of these lyrics references yet?)
Lip Gloss Shades:
- Through the Dark- Electric glitter poppy lip gloss that glows neon red-orange under UV light
- Kiss You- Orange glitter rush lip gloss that glows neon yellow under UV light
- Taken – Powerhouse glitter pink lip gloss that glows neon orange under UV light
