 In my Honest Opinion I find these shadows to be silky and creamy in texture, very pigmented and beautiful. They are long wearing with minimal creasing and blend very easily and nicely. I suggest using a good eye primer for more longevity of the colors. The lip glosses smell wonderful but the pigmentation is not true to the pan. But again I treat them as glosses and not stains so you can wear them alone or on top of your lipsticks. The eyeliner is creamy but it does tend to smudge so I find it great as an eye base or to be smudged under the eye for a smoky effect. The Lip Gloss Top Coat is great and it smells like Vanilla and it gives that extra kick of shine you can wear on top of the lip glosses or wear it alone. The Nail Varnishes are beautiful and great for that lazy manicure or just for the pizazz and sparkle for that fun night out!
Overall, I am very pleased with this One Direction Kit from Markwins. I give it a rating of B+ and It makes a Great Holiday Gift this Season!
