Makeup by One Direction I Should Have Kissed You
Little Black Dress Volumizing Mascara in Perfectly Black
I was pleasantly surprised by this mascara. It didn’t burn my eyes or make them water. Which is a plus. Mascara is usually hit or miss with me. While this didn’t give my lashes much volume, it applied nicely and didn’t clump together or flake off.
4+1 Eye Shadow Palette
The eye shadow palette has 4 shadows and 1 cream glitter. Save You Tonight is a shimmery Sky Blue. More Than This is a matte light peach. Gotta Be You is a matte light taupe. Another World is a shimmery dark royal blue. Up All Night is a royal blue glitter cream. All of the shades are soft and buttery. All are nicely pigmented over some kind of primer or sticky base. These were swatched over Glamour Doll Eyes Foil Me.
Liquilights Glow Gloss in Taken
This is a hot pink gloss with holographic glitter. It’s semi-thick, non-sticky formula. I liked it very much. Unfortunately I have no black light so I can’t tell you how it glows.
I Should Have Kissed You creme lipstick
This is a matte bubblegum pink lipstick. The formula really drags on the lips, but once on it melts and feels creamy. It’s a very pretty color, though I’m not sure it suits me all that well.
Eye and Body Crayon in Stand Up
This is a lovely navy blue crayon. It appears this crayon is waterproof. It took vigorous rubbing with soap to get most of it off. It’s nice and creamy and opaque.
Na Na Na Nail Polish
This is a metallic teal with a bit of iridescence to it. It’s a sheer polish. It took three coats to build up to the opacity in the photos. It dries very quickly though and so far has lasted a day without any chipping.
You get 5 different stencils. You get a card with crossed arrows, a diamond, lightning bolts, a crown and triangles. You’re supposed to be able to use the eye and body crayon to stencil these on, but I found it difficult. The crayon is so big and soft that it didn’t really get into the small corners or shapes. Doing it on myself was impossible. So I did a couple on my daughter.
