Review: One Direction Limited Edition Makeup Kits + Giveaway!

Hello, Beauties!

The lovely people at BrandBacker and Markwins International sent over some samples for me to Review and I have finally played around with these long enough to be able to deliver an honest review.

One Direction recently expanded into the cosmetics industry with a series of kits and added to the mix were these three shown below which happen to be limited Edition for the season.

Sold at Just $16.50 (each) These kits can be found at Macys, Dillards, Boscov's, Stage Stores, Beauty Brands, and Lord & Taylor as of November 15th!

The Kits Included are:
-Rock Me Nail Kit (3 Nail Varnishes and 3 UV Reactive Glitters)
-Electro Glam Mascara (Blue, Pink, & Yellow)
-LiquidLights Glow Gloss (3 Super Glittery Glosses, UV Reactive: Orange, Pink,light Red)

 I absolutely adore the concept behind these Mascaras! Yes, the retro lashes are coming back in style but I loved using these as temporary highlights in my hair. My sisters and friends made a night out of it, by glamming up our hair to our colors of choice. In case you were wondering these look AMAZING even on dark hair, and wash out without any hassle at all!

 The Glosses are EXTREMELY glittery which is fine for party season, but if you're like me and prefer mattes, you can still make these work.
Here's My tip:
-Apply a matte color of your choice as the base
-Add a coat of either one of the glosses
-Dab on some Translucent powder to minimize the glitter without taking it off, completely

At first the two pink-Red colors look virtually identical but applied on the lips they are clearly distinguishes.

The coolest part about these is that they glow in the dark, so don't forget to put one in your purse if you know you'll be running into some UV lights!

The Swatches of the nail varnishes shown above all demonstrate what the colors appear to be after 2 coats. Unfortunately, the most exciting color (Blue) was the hardest to work with as it appeared to be streaky, But after a few minutes it dried nicely.

The Pink applied like a dream as well as the Glitter which is surprisingly thicker than I originally thought.

If you're looking for the perfect gift for a fan girl, this is it. Although I do think that this was designed with a younger crowd in mind, I still enjoyed using the Mascara with my girls, the nail varnishes I will most definitely use, and the glosses as I stated earlier, can still be worked with even with the glitter issue.

One Direction and the Markwins team are also having a very generous giveaway so, if you fancy these kits here's your chance to win one for free!
