You’ve had your chance to win a limited edition make up set from “The Looks Collection” from my update in July when I was able to announce my getting accepted into their trial campaign! You’ve also had the chance to read my review and see the unboxing!

Now your chance has come again to celebrate and enter to win with the Macy’s launch!

For those of you who do not wish to go back and read the July post for details about the kit, keep reading!

The Looks Collection” is a set of three keepsake tins inspired by One Direction’s globe-conquering albums, “Up All Night, “Take Me Home” and the latest chart topper, ‘Midnight Memories.” Each tin has illustrations included to help you get your perfect look. To top it off, everything in these tins is housed in a Limited Edition collectible keepsake tin!

Each collection comes with:

A Liquilights Glow Gloss which sparkles brilliantly during the day and illuminates under UV black light after dark. Gloss can be worn on its own for a sheer glittery touch of color, or to be pared with the included crème lipstick for a bolder look.

Four pigment-rich eye shadows and a bold glitter crème shadow. Kept in a travel ready compact. Described with maximum color payoff and they stay put and don’t crease. Chubby pencils that glides on smoothly and can be worn as a liner, shadow or body crayon. Little Black Dress mascara, a carbon black volumizing formula that adds definition.

Nail varnishes in ‘fashion-forward’ shades formulated for quick drying and longer wear.

Bonus One Direction Stencils.
