In this kit:
Confession time- I am not a One Direction fan. I don't hate them, but I don't go out of my way to listen to them. Though I do really love Story of My Life. I can understand why they have such a huge fan base, I mean I grew up a major NKOTB and *NSYNC fan (still am!). I received this One Direction makeup kit to review and I think that both fans and non-fans (totally a word) alike can enjoy. There are three sets in all and the one I have is the Up All Night Collection! Be prepared for lots of pictures, as there are a lot of items to show.
Taken lipgloss - glitter pink gloss that glows orange under UV lights
Eyeshadow quad +1 - includes four eyeshadows and a glitter creme
I Should Have Kissed You lipstick - bubblegum pink lip creme
Little Black Dress mascara - volumizing mascara in black
Na Na Na nail polish - aqua blue metallic chrome
Stand Up body and eye crayon - denim blue
5 stencils set - One Direction doodles to decorate you, your friends, and your things

crème de la crème of the collection for me! The I Should Have Kissed You lipstick and Taken lipgloss are both so pigmented and vibrant. Total winners! I Should Have Kissed You is a little dry and does not go on smoothly. I would suggest applying it over lip balm for smooth sailing. Taken has a strange applicator, a bit flimsy. It disperses quite a lot of product, but it works decently enough.
Middle Right: I Should Have Kissed You and Taken
