one year; one direction

Today De Nouveau Review turns ONE! To celebrate, I'm hosting the ONE giveaway you won't want to miss. ONE lucky winner will receive a limited edition ONE DIRECTION makeup tin.

The boys of One Direction continue to add to their makeup line and have now released tins featuring each of the individual band members.
Each tin comes with six eyeshadows, four lip glosses, a lip gloss "top coat," two nail polishes, and an eyeliner. 

The makeup is all pretty good. I always use an eyeshadow primer, which usually intensifies the color of whatever shadow I use. So I used my standard primer before testing out this eyeshadow for the first time, and I was super disappointed with the eyeshadow. I felt like none of the eyeshadows applied true to their color. 

Later, I was doing my nieces' makeup and hadn't used primer, and the eyeshadow colors were SO MUCH BETTER.  Moral of the story: apply the eyeshadow without primer. 

This tin comes with a nude lip gloss that I absolutely love. The lip gloss top coat is sparkly and better suited for the younger girls. The eyeliner is soft and makes for easy application. 
I'm giving away the Liam tin. Find out how to enter below!

Even though I received this product complimentary, I will never post opinions on De Nouveau Review that are not entirely my own.
