Introducing: Makeup By One Direction

Were you crushing on any boy bands in your teen/tween years? I sure did, so I can understand how excited One Direction fans are about the release of this Limited Edition Makeup Collection, that will hit the shelves of Macy’s on August 11th, and other retailers on August 25th. The collection consists of three look bundles that come in keepsake tins: Up All Night with vibrant blues and pinks for a flirty look [the one I will be talking about today], Take Me Home with neutral colors to achieve girl-next-door look. and Midnight Mystery with Hollywood bombshell shades like red and black.
BRAND OVERVIEW
The irreverent attitude and colorful style of a new generation takes on a glamorous form in Makeup by One Direction. The world’s biggest pop band debuts a limited-edition cosmetics collection by Markwins International, launching mid-August 2014 at Macy’s and select other major retailers worldwide. Much like the One Direction band members themselves, this prestige makeup line is fun, bold and a tad mischievous, featuring vivid shades, premium formulas and chic, collectible packaging and components.
Up All Night - BeautyByLucky
Up All Night Collectible Tin includes the following products:
1. Liquidlights Glow Gloss in “Taken”
This cool hot pink lip gloss is densely packed with iridescent shimmer and purple glitter particles, and provides gorgeous color to the lips. It also glows orange under UV light! Is also cute when placed on top of a nude lip.
2. “I Should Have Kissed You” LipstickA gorgeous cool bubblegum pink creme lipstick that applies opaque in just one swipe. It also leaves a pretty tint on the lips, so you will still have a trace of pigment even when the formula fades away.

3. Little Black Dress Mascara in “Perfectly Black”The mascara provides deep black color and loads of volume to create the effect of full and fluttery lashes. I love that it didn’t clump on me which is why its a current favorite.

4. Eye & Body Crayon in “Stand Up”The formula is blendable, buildable, and buttery smooth. Never have to worry about applying too much. Also can be worn on waterline for a pop of color.

5. 4+1 Eye Shadow Palette 

Filled with shades of blue and balancing neutrals, this palette is actually quite versatile. There are four pressed powder colors and one creme glitter topper in the center. From left to right clockwise, the pans are called More Than This [mostly matte neutral soft blushing pink, with sparse silver shimmers], Save You Tonight [cool turquoise blue with silver metallic shimmer], Gotta Be You [cool satin taupe with silver microshimmer], Another World [cool royal blue with silver metallic shimmer],  and Up All Night [sapphire glitter creme]. I love it because i tend to stay away from color on my eyes but this made me embrace the color on my eyes because of the versatility.

It’s been one year since I started my blog I am so happy how far I’ve come. Before I was so worried about how people will accept my blog content, I  still do but not as much. Also, I will be posting more now that I have my computer back. I just want to say Thanks for sticking with me this long and I’m happy I made amazing friends through my blog. 

         THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT.

What Goes With This?

t091GxQSjWzwF8jSMXdg_brightpink.squarelogo.jpeg Whatgoeswiththis.com is a website people go to to get help on finding the perfect outfit for any occasion.

I was given the opportunity to become a style influencer. With this I am able to help others with finding the perfect outfit. Seeing as it it something I love doing.  So when I was asked to do so i jumped at the opportunity.

WGWT

On WGWT you are able to set a certain price range for other to help find the perfect outfit or just shoes to go with an outfit.
I will write an updated post when I’ve used it more than I have now. But, if you can tell I am in love with the website so far and I’ve used it myself.

I know this post isn’t that detailed but that’s only because it recently happened and I haven’t had much time to get on the website. I can tell you so far I am loving it. When I use it more I will post an updated post.

GlamST pt.2 : Updated Review

So if you guys remember I recently did an review on GlamST launching their website.  If you want to check that out Click Here.

BEFORE: So this time around I was able to upload my own image. This is the image I  used. I already had on makeup (a little).

For this I wanted to try out different foundations since I need to purchase some more.  That was my main focused of using the sight.

After:

Products I used:

Makeup Forever HD Invisible Coverage Foundation.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

YSL ROUGE PUR COUTURE Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain Rebel Nudes

I think it turned out pretty good.

Site Overview:

Before you start applying makeup to your picture. Its a process you have to go through (pointless to me). You have to place the markers accurately on you face. Makeup your picture isn’t like mine because half of the markers won’t show and it’ll be hard to place them right. You also need patience cause its a fast but slow process.

Eye Shadow, Eyeliner and Mascara? I didn’t use them because they didn’t work out how I thought they would’ve.

Here’s a picture with them on.

effectstripes-b9b9d77c-5a03-4b12-b927-c19cd23be5f1

The eyeliner isn’t placed right and it though me off of using eyeshadow. Also my lashes are removed from my eyes and placed on my eye balls. Creepy Right?

Barefaced: Before application (side note I need my eyebrows done)

During Application: I know your probably looking at it like why is it white. It’s ok it blends to your skin tone. The color I got was wheat. 
140409_0004application
After Application: Only thing I don’t really like about this is that no matter how much I blended it into my skin it still appeared white in certain areas. It does hydrate the skin I used this before and ever since my skin hasn’t been as dry as it usually is.

Full Face: I went about my regular makeup routine after applying the CC cream. I used it as a primer/base for my foundation. I used less foundation than usually and still had perfect coverage.

My overall opinion of this product:
Although I have to do so much blending to get it look my color it’s amazing. Its lightweight which I love in my foundation as well. If you want you can wear this by its self for a more natural look. You can build it up and not have a cake face.
Rate: 4.5/5

Everything is my own opinion I am not being paid to say anything I wouldn’t say on my own.

Kamea vs JuicyCanvas …?

Thanks to the wonderful people over at JuicyCanvas I was able to create a Canvas.

logo juicycanvas

At first I was a little worried about how it was going to come out. To my surprise it came out amazing. I used one of the stencils they have and “Remixed” it a little to my liking. I was hoping to make a T-shirt but couldn’t yet. Hey let’s start off with an easy process first.

I enjoyed making my canvas. It was pretty easy. I made two canvas:

  1. Puppy Love – Of course had to make this one I mean hey I am an animal lover.
  2. Sugar Skull – After watching Halloween tutorials on the sugar skull look I feel in love.

It can be very pricey but we all know you can put a price on art. It depends on how you design it.

My overall experience: Amazing 9/10

Reasoning being its super easy to get around the site and it takes only 2 minutes at most to create your canvas.

Now let’s get on to the good stuff. Not only can you create a canvas but you can create a T-Shirt, Baby Onesie, Phone Case and a Tote Bag.
