Packaging
All of the kits come in a decorated box with a clear outside sleeve that slips on. The sleeves are also decorated. When you open the box the products are in a black plastic tray. The lip gloss come in a square clear plastic tube. They have a black doe foot wand cap. The caps have a brick emboss. They have the company name on the side and the colors on a sticker on the bottom. The mascaras come in a round tube with a mascara wand cap. The cap is black with brick emboss. The tubes are blue, pink and yellow. They have the company name on the side and the colors on the bottom on a sticker. The nail polish bottles are clear glass. They come with a black lid with nail polish brush. The lids also have a brick emboss on them. They have the company name on the bottles with the color names on the bottom on a sticker. The glitter pots come in a tall square jar with a round lid. They are clear plastic. The company name is on the front and the glitter name and info on a sticker on the back.

Scent and formula
The lip gloss smells faintly of a light almost fruity vanilla. It disappears on your lips. It’s a creamy smooth formula and not sticky at all. The glitter is fine, you can feel it but it’s not gritty feeling. The mascara smells and feels like standard mascara. The nail polish smells, looks, feels and tastes like nail polish. xd

So if you love One Direction you’ll love these Makeup by One Direction sets by Markwins! The lip glosses are really nice. They are creamy and non-sticky. The glitter is very fine and doesn’t feel gritty. The colors are lovely and bright. My favorite is Taken. The mascaras are cool. The blue and pink show up fairly well but the yellow is hard to use on the hair. They all show up really well on the lashes though. They are vibrant colors and look really cool. The nail polish is pretty decent. The blue and pink are super bright and are cream jellies. It takes 3-4 coats to make them opaque. If you know me you my disdain for bar glitter. The holo polish is… pretty but it’s bar glitter and I can’t stand to wear it. The glitters themselves are pretty. The blue and pink are lighter versions of their polish friends. To be honest they aren’t that glittery. I used them several ways on my nails and my favorite way to use them was in a glitter sandwich. I think they looked best that way. Now the holo glitter Star is my favorite. It’s gorgeous. It’s colorful and sparkly and shiny and Oooo. These sets came out in November of 2014 and are available in the following stores Macy’s, Dillards, Boscov’s, Stage, Stores, Beauty Brands, Lord & Taylor. They are also available online at Amazon and Dillard’s. =d I hope you like my little model! Fumiko had been wanting to try the mascara and it was easier to take pictures of it on her! She has the pink mascara on her lashes and in her bangs, the blue mascara in her brows and hair and the yellow in her hair. She thought she looked so cool. =]

Thursday Guest Post!

Thursday Guest Post: Emma from In Pursuit of the Perfect Petticoat

Hi guys! I’m Emma, a new baby blogger that is slightly obsessed with indie makeup. I post semi-frequently and regularly over at In Pursuit of the Perfect Petticoat. I was super excited to be invited to guest post over here about indie cosmetics.

Since it’s January I’m sure you’ve all heard about the Color of the Year- Marsala. As pretty as the Sephora/Pantone collection is, I find that I always like the indie version better. I’ve put together a quick round-up of some of my favorite marsala-esque shades and products from indie companies. Some of the products lean more red or orange, this was intentional in order to help produce a list most people can find at least one thing that would suit their coloring. Personally, I cannot wear orange-based marsala but the red/burgundy shades look delightful on me!

First up is eyeshadow. I’m slightly apprehensive of anything remotely red near my eyes, but it looks like Pantone wants to break me of that this year

.MarsalaEyeshadow1

 

 

 

 

Left to right, top to bottom: Brazen Cosmetics “Free Spirit”, Detrivore “Apocalyptic”, Glamor Doll Eyes “Chilvarist”, Beauty for the Win “Starbucks Lovers”, Kiss My Sass “Sunburn”, Dreamworld Hermantica “Risky”, Femme Fatale “Blood Moon”, Shiro Cosmetics “Goron Ruby”, Shiro Cosmetics “What’s This Lever Do?”, Beauty for the Win “Amsterdam”, Shiro Cosmetics “Queensguard”, Shiro Cosmetics “Ziggy”

My favorites are definitely Starbucks Lovers and Blood Moon of the shadows, now if only I can get the courage up to wear them….

Next up is blush, a much more wearable approach to the marsala trend.

MarsalaBlush

 

Top to bottom, left to right: Parlo Cosmetics “Call Me Baby”, Beauty for the Win “Anne”, Silk Naturals “Galaxy”, Notoriously Morbid “Numerology”, Aromaleigh “Gaussa”, Baroque Cosmetics “I’d Hate Toulouse You”.

My favorite from this line up is definitely the Baroque shade- though I think the Aromaleigh shade provides an interesting shade.

 

 

 

This part is my favorite: lip products. I got into lipstick long before I learned the basics of eyeshadow beyond “skin tone on the lid for some shimmer” and marsala is just so wearable and approachable this way, even for those who normally shy away from red. I personally run towards red with my arms outstretched, so that last part was just a guess.

MarsalaLipsClockwise from the left: Silk Naturals “Script”, Performance Colors “Coco Loco”, Fyrinnae “Naughty or Nice”, Fierce Magenta “Brick”, Parlo Cosmetics “Token”, Limnit Lipsticks “Ms. President”.

From this set you can’t possibly expect me to pick favorites. My answer is “all of them”. Those Fierce Magenta and Silk Naturals shades will be mine, ASAP.

I’m sure I missed piles of beautiful marsala shades, so leave me a name or link in the comments so I can add more things to my ever growing wishlist! Check out my blog next week for a review and swatch post of my vaguely marsala-esque shades in my personal collection, indie and non-indie alike.

Notoriously Morbid Swatches and Mini Reviews by Kaylee Bee

Hello wonderful people of the interwebs! My name is Kaylee Bee, and I am this weeks guest poster. I just want to thank Luna for the opportunity to do this. I am so very excited and I hope you all enjoy!

Today I will be doing swatches and reviews of my favorite indie brand, Notoriously Morbid. When I first got into indies, about 6 months ago, this was one of the very first brands I tried. It was love at first swatch! So without further ado, I present to you some of my NM collection!

 

Captivated: A metallic olive green with copper sparkles

Swatched: Over Darling Girl Primped & Primed. There was no major change over glitter glue and pixie epoxy.

My thoughts: I adore this color to pieces. It’s definitely not one I wear to work, but it’s so much fun to put on for a day out on the weekends! I’m a sucker  for greens, especially olives, so I couldn’t resist this one.

 

 

 

 

Teacher in Tweed:  An olive brown that practically screams librarian.

top (primped & primed), middle (pixy epoxy), (bottom) bare

Swatched: Over Primped & Primed, pixy epoxy, and bare. Being a matte texture, it does not take well over a glitter glue.

My thoughts: This is a really nice matte brown color. It’s much darker in person and looks much different depending on what base you decide to put it over, as shown here. I like that it’s so versatile, and really changes colors over primers. So experiment and find a combination you like! I personally like to pair it with pixy epoxy!

 

 

 

 

 

Bad Juju:  A warm, coraly magenta with an airy lavender duochrome.

Bad Juju Comparison
top (primped & primed) middle (glitter glue) bottom (pixie epoxy)

 

Swatched: Over elf glitter glue. Primped & Primed (top)  and Pixy Epoxy (bottom) also shown for comparison. Glitter glue brings out the lavender duo chrome more.

My throughts: I didn’t think I’d love this color as much as I do. The shift looks a bit more blue in real life, but it’s lovely when it hits the right light. This is subtle and natural enough to wear in a work environment in my opinion.

 

 

 

 

 

Pale Rider: A dusty matte purple

Pale Rider Primed
over Primped & Primed
Pale Rider bare

Pale Rider Comparison
top (primped & primed)

 

Swatched: Over Primped & Primed and bared. As with Teacher in Tweed, avoid sticky primers cause it will clump if you’re not too careful.

My thoughts: This is by far my favorite of the lot. These pictures don’t do it justice by any means. It’s hard to capture the true color of this, but it’s exactly as described with grey undertones and it is beautiful.

 

 

 

 

Crimson Horror: A gorgeous deep red with a hint of metallic and a little sparkle that is sure to get you noticed

DG Primped & Primed

over Fyrinnae Pixy Epoxy

top (primped & primed), middle (glitter glue), bottom (pixy epoxy)
top (primped & primed), middle (glitter glue), bottom (pixy epoxy)

 

Swatched: Over primped and primed, glitter glue, and pixy epoxy.

 

My thoughts: So I am a HUGE red fan. Before the Venus palette (which is awesome but I don’t support Lime Crime), all my friends would make fun of me for the unusual color choice. So when I saw this color I had to have it. Plus Doctor Who. I love to wear it over Pixy Epoxy, as it really brings out the red.  I’m not sure if this is discontinued or out of stock, but as of right now I cannot find it on the site.

 

 

 

Mint To Die For: A matte mint with a tiny amount of glitter for an added twisted classic look.

top (primped & primed), middle (glitter glue), (pixy epoxy)

 

 

Swatched: It shows up pretty much the same over all three primers

My thoughts: This is a really beautiful mint color. As much as I love mint, it just doesn’t work with my skin tone. However, if you can work pastels and love spring, this is definitely a color for you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BONUS LIMITED EDITION SWATCHES!

Thanks so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed! This was my first time swatching with tape so I hope I did it right and if you like what you see, feel free to follow me on my brand new blog! It’s still under construction but it should be up and running soon!
