Makeup by One Direction: Up All Night Collection {Limited Edition}

* The following products were sent to me for my honest review. For more information, please visit my disclosure policy.*

Hello Lacquer Lovers!
A few weeks ago I posted a giveaway featuring Makeup by One Direction! Today I have the swatches from the kit I received, the Up All Night Collection. If you would like to see the other kits, check them out on Facebook, as tons of bloggers have been posting on their page!

The kit comes in a collectable tin box. The imaging is a plastic casing and can be removed to open the box.

When you open the box, on the left is a "look book" showing you how to use each product.

The items in the kit are nicely packaged and are secure in the box.

Now, let's get to the swatches!

Na Na Na is the nail polish in the Up All Night Collection. It is a sheer blue polish with a green shift, needing three coats for full opacity. This was the item I was most excited for! I liked it, but the it had a strong, off putting smell. 

Stand Up is the chubby eye pencil. The kit describes it as a "dark denim" color. This crayon should be long lasting, as it took me forever to scrub it off of my arm after doing these swatches. 

More Then This is a soft pink. Gotta Be You is a taupe shimmer. Save You Tonight is a turquoise blue. Another World is a royal blue. All four of these shadows are from the 4+1 eyeshadow palette. 

Up All Night, a dark blue glitter, is also from the 4+1 eyeshadow palette.

Taken, the Liquilights Glow Glass, is a hot pink lip gloss with a bit of glitter. It glows orange under a UV light. It has a gritty feel to it from the glitter.

I Should Have Kissed You is a bright pink matte lipstick. This is my least favorite product from the collection, as it is drying and has a waxy feel to it. It does not look appealing on the lips, so I will spare you that picture.

Little Black Dress is the mascara from the collection. It was okay. It wasn't horrible, but it was no where near my holy grail mascara.

The kit also includes a five piece stencil set.

Overall, I think that this collection is okay. I'm not sure if I would pay $29 dollars for it though, as it seems like you are paying for the name more than the product. My favorite product from this collection would have to be the chubby eye/body crayon. It is long lasting and has good coverage.
