A chance to win a One Direction makeup kit and tickets to their new tour!

Hi guys! Today I’m bringing you a giveaway opportunity courtesy of BrandBacker and Markwins Beauty. I’m not being compensated for this post; I just get the fun of letting my readers in on a chance to win something, and maybe bringing in some new readers for myself.

So, is everyone familiar with One Direction? They’re the latest boy-band-the-girls-love-to-love, they’re huge all over the globe, and now they’re releasing their own line of makeup kits! These kits are being created by the same company that produces Physicians’ Formula and Wet ‘n Wild cosmetics, so this isn’t just some fly-by-night themed knockoff, either – these are real, quality makeup. Let’s talk a little about what you’ll get…

There are three kits, each named after one of 1D’s three albums and each containing different shades, so you can pick what colors – or what album! – suits you best. Each kit contains one each of:

  • Liquilights Glow Gloss, which is a sparkly pop of colored gloss that glows under UV light
  • One Direction Creme Lipstick in a coordinating color
  • A travel compact containing four pressed powder eyeshadows and one glitter creme eyeshadow
  • A chubby pencil that can be used as eyeshadow, eyeliner, or all-over body color
  • Little Black Dress mascara, a black volumizing formula
  • A nail polish
  • Some 1D stencils that will let you add temporary graphic art to yourself or your friends

The “Midnight Madness” collection (that’s it in the picture up there ^^) is red-themed, and contains a poppy-colored Liquilights Gloss, red creme lipstick, eyeshadows in shades of gray and pink, a blackest-black chubby pencil, and a metallic steel nail polish (as well as the aforementioned black mascara and body stencils).

The “Take Me Home” kit (below) is shades of yellow, with an orange glitter Liquilights Gloss, a nude-pink lipstick, eyeshadows in peaches and taupes, a warm chocolate-brown chubby pencil, and a gold glitter nail polish (as well as the aforementioned black mascara and body stencils).

The “Up All Night” kit (below) is all blues and pinks. In it you’ll find a pink glitter Liquilights gloss that glows orange in the dark, eyeshadows in pinks and blues, a pink creme lipstick, a denim-colored chubby pencil, and an acqua-blue metallic shimmer nail polish (as well as the aforementioned black mascara and body stencils).

Excited yet? I’m not even a boy-band fan usually, but these kits sound pretty awesome to me – glow-in-the-dark lip gloss? Yes please, one of each shade!

These kits are debuting in the U.S. at select stores in August (Macy’s: August 11; Stage Stores, Dillard’s, Beauty Brands, Lord & Taylor: August 25). They will also be released internationally, but there’s no exact date for non-U.S. releases yet.

However! Because you, dear reader, are awesome and read my blog, you can enter now for a chance to win not only a One Direction Makeup kit, but also tickets to a One Direction concert!! The tickets are for a show in Foxborough, MA on Friday, August 8th, 2014, at 7:00pm and do not include transport or hotel costs. U.S. and Canada entrants only, please.

The drawing will be on July 29, so hurry up and get your entries in!
