1D Lip Polish in 'Liam Loves Blueberry'

1D Lip Polish in Liam Loves Blueberry - £2.50, available here

Before I start this review, I just want to make it clear that I DON'T LIKE ONE DIRECTION. At all. Not one tiny bit. In fact, I loathe them after one of my housemates in my third year of uni had them on repeat for the whole year. So, I was a bit hesitant to buy this product but after seeing Sara's review I knew I wanted it. It didn't help that she came into Superdrug with me and was badgering me to buy it. THANKS FOR MAKING ME LOOK LIKE I LIKE ONE DIRECTION, SARA!

The product I picked up is one of the Lip Polishes in 'Liam Loves Blueberry'. Well, I have no idea which one Liam is. He could be the ugly one for all I know, but one of my best pals is called Liam and he likes blueberries so I'm just going to pretend that this was made for him and not the minging one from that boy band. The packaging and the product itself reminds me of Sleek's Pout Polishes which I know are very popular in the blogging world apart from this one has cringey One Direction logos all around the edge.

I was expecting this to smell like blueberries (y'know, with it being called 'Liam Loves Blueberry') but it actually smells like grape which I think is better than blueberry to be honest. There isn't much of a taste to it, but it's not really for eating anyway - if a lip product tastes too good I just end up licking it off and therefore using more of it. The consistency is like a thick lip balm, much like the Sleek Pout Polishes that I mentioned before and it gives a sheer wash of colour on the lips which lasts a good couple of hours as long as you don't eat or drink, much like a normal lip balm. It is purple but it's also very subtle so you can get away with wearing it for work. The colour is buildable, you can use less for a more sheer look and more if you want a deeper purple colour.

I'm ashamed to say that although I've moaned about buying a One Direction endorsed product, it is really good and think I love it. I can see myself using it a lot and I might even have to buy a back up pot, just in case it's limited edition.  I've heard a lot of great things about the lipsticks in the collection too but there isn't a colour that really stands out to me, otherwise I'd probably buy one of them as well.

Have you tried anything from the One Direction collection? Are you a lover or a hater?


  1. I'm not a fan! I don't even know their names, although I probably should because lots of my daughters friends love them.

    This shade really suits you though so I wouldn't worry about it being a 'One Direction' product. I'm not keen on the name though "/ I think they could have done better!!!
