I am so happy that I hooked up, (not literally, but a girl can dream, right?) with One Direction and their awesome makeup line. What I love best is the products, but what I admire, as a marketing expert myself, is the packaging and the message. Smart business.
As a member of Brandbacker, below is a list of the great products I received to review:
ELECTRO GLAM MASCARA
Give your look a jolt of electric colour, with this limited-edition trio of ultra-bold coloured mascaras for hair and lashes, in three heavily pigmented, buildable colours.
FOR LASHES- Make a subtle statement by adding a pop of colour to the tips of your lashes, or add coats to your entire lashes for a shockingly chic look. The more the better!
AS A HAIR MASCARA- Apply to small sections of hair and swipe through for instant ELECTRIC highlights.
Why don’t we go there- Shock of blue
Does he know?- Pinkest hot pink
Story of my life- Amped canary yellow
LIQUILIGHTS GLOW GLOSS
Liquilights Glow Gloss sparkles brilliantly during the day and illuminates under UV black light after dark. Enriched with natural oils and vitamin E to keep your lips soft and hydrated all day and all night.
Gloss can be worn alone for a pop of sparkle and color, or paired with One Direction crème lipstick for a bolder look.
Through the Dark- Electric glitter poppy lip gloss that glows to neon red-orange under UV light
Kiss You- Orange glitter rush lip gloss that glows to neon yellow under UV light
Taken - Powerhouse glitter pink lip gloss that glows to neon orange under UV light
ROCK ME NAIL KIT
ROCK ME NAIL KIT, featuring NEON UV-REACTIVE Nail Varnish and UV-REACTIVE GLITTER nail toppings that add even more sizzle to your mani, for nails that light up day and night.
Sprinkle the glitter over wet polish for a subtle accent, or go for the glitz and dip your entire wet mani in mega-watt sparkle!
Happily– UV iced blue glitter
Moments- UV neon pink
Diana- UV 3D holographic
Kicks- UV snow cone blue
Not afraid- UV electrified pink glitter
Star-- UV holo glitter
A lot of goodies, right? Well, head on over to One Direction's Facebook page for their Makeup and read all about it, follow them and try out this awesome cosmetic line.
I am a lucky, lucky girl. Or I should say, my granddaughters are really the lucky ones, because the One Direction Limited-Edition Beauty Collection Makeup Tins I received as a Brandbacker member to review are part of their Christmas present. Yes, I kept one to try myself and I really love the makeup by One Direction. Below is what was included in the awesome designer tin:
Nobody Compares- Metallic silver
Tell Me A Lie- Metallic nude pink
Same Mistakes- Metallic mint
I Would- Smokey brown shimmer
Summer Love- Smokey purple haze
Everything About You- Smokey black shimmer
I Want- True matte black
Loved You First- Bubble gum pink
One Thing- Frosted pink ice
Irresistible- Shimmered pearl

As a member of BrandBacker I was privileged to receive a KISS Instawave Automatic Curler to review. It’s quick and easy to get salon-quality curls with the revolutionary new InstaWave by KISS. Just push the button to style any type of hair effortlessly.I tried the curler on Thanksgiving day because I wanted to really look my best in front of the family, and I did! The curler was easy to use and gave me fantastic curls in seconds. I got so many compliments on my hair that day.
Here are instructions for how to use the curler from the KISS website. If you are looking for the best curler to get salon-quality curls, I would recommend this product to anyone.
I moved from Texas, where I have been all my life, to Florida in Sept of 2014. I have to tell you, I have never been happier! Vero Beach, where I live, is only a few minutes from the ocean, and visiting Orlando was one of the highlights of my life. If you never get a chance to travel anywhere else across the US, make the one place you go Florida!
