Makeup by One Direction Member Tins (LE)

Disclaimer: The product mentioned in this post is given to me to review. I am not affiliated with the company nor getting paid to advertise the product. This post is written with my honest opinion.

I am fortunate to work with Markwins International for Makeup by One Direction. I already reviewed Up All Night from The Looks collection and Electroglam Mascara, Liquilights Glow Gloss, and Rock Me Nail Varnish. This past weekend I saw all the collection at my Macy's. I highly recommend checking our your Macy's for the collection. For this post, I will talk about the member tins.

I received three tins, 1 Niall and 2 Louis. I decided to use Niall.

Thoughts: I was extremely excited when I received these tins! They look fun and I know I'll get good use out of it.
Here's how the palette looks inside. On the left side, I'm not 100% sure but it looks like each member designed it. Mine is Niall.
Here's a closer look at the products. It comes with 6 eyeshadows, eye pencil, lipgloss top coat, 4 lipglosses, 2 nails polishes, and 2 applicators.
Here's a closer look at one of the eyeshadows, I Would (smokey brown shimmer).

Now for the swatches of the eyeshadows...
Top row from left to right; Nobody Compares, Tell Me A Lie, and Same Mistakes. By the way, this was the top layer. Once you use the over spray, it's all matte.
Bottom row from left to right; I Would, Summer Love, and Everything About You.
Here's a closer look at a lipgloss, Loved You First (bubble gum pink).
Here's a swatch of the lipglosses from top to bottom, left to right; Loved You First, One Thing, Irresistable, and Heart Attack.
It also comes with an eye pencil and one lipgloss top coat.
The eye pencil comes in a matte black, I Want.
Here's how the applicator looks on the lipgloss top coat, Over Again. If you look carefully, you can see the sparkles.
Here's a swatch of the eye pencil, I Want, and lipgloss top coat, Over Again, on my hand.
The tin comes with two applicators, one for the lips and the other for the eyes.
Lastly, the tin also comes with two nail polishes from left to right; Stole My Heart and Alive.

Now for the looks I did with the tin...
Look #1:
I applied Tell Me A Lie on the lid and I Would on the outer v and crease. To make the lid more shinier, I topped the lid with the top layer of Nobody Compares.
Here's an overall look. I also applied Loved You First lipgloss.

Look #2:
I applied a mixture of Nobody Compares and Same Mistakes on the lid. I blend with I Would on the outer v and crease.
Here's an overall look with Iresistable lipgloss.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I'm loving the tin. Compared to Up All Night, it's smaller in size. In my opinion, this is a more travel-friendlier tin. I also like that you can choose whichever member you like from One Direction. It doesn't matter about the products. They're all the same inside. I also love that it comes with a variety of products; eyeshadows, lipgloss, eye pencil, nail polishes, and so on. If you're not much an eyeshadow person, you can use other products like the lipglosses and vice versa. Secondly, the tin is targeted to all individuals who enjoy makeup. The only thing I would change is that I wish there was some kind of compartment for the open lipglosses. When I see loose powder from the eyeshadows fall into the open lipglosses, I just don't want to use it. This might just be me though. Third when you open the tin, there's a slight vanilla scent. It comes from the lipglosses. I'm not a vanilla person but I actually don't find this bad. Lastly, I think this is a great for all ages. It's probably targeted towards teenagers to early 20's, but I can see anyone using it even children who likes to play dress up. It's just a universal tin!

Pros:
* Strong, sturdy tin.
* Travel-friendly.
* One Direction collection.
* Comes with a variety of products; eyeshadows, lipgloss, and nail polishes.
* Great for all ages.
* Universal tin.

Cons:
* If you want all the members, you need to collect all the tins.

Would repurchase: Yes.
