-- One Direction Launches Makeup for Fans
LONDON, Oct. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- It's now official – the world's biggest band, One Direction, is launching a range of makeup inspired by, and designed for, the band's millions of fans. Much like the cheeky band members, Make-Up by One Direction is fun, bold and a tad mischievous.
The collections feature vivid shades and premium formulas, all presented in uniquely collectible, limited-edition packaging, and inspired by the band's chart topping albums, "Midnight Memories," "Take Me Home" and "Up All Night." Products feature formulas that should resonate with fans, including LiquiLights Glow Gloss, a UV-reactive gloss that sparkles during the day and glows under black (UV) light after dark.
Band members Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, and Harry Styles – currently engaged in a world stadium tour – hinted at news of the line when Niall posted a photo on Twitter of his nails covered in varnish and his hands "swatched" with makeup.
"Just had a great meeting about 1D make up! It's that good I'm gonna start wearing it myself," tweeted Niall Horan.
The line will debut at Macy's, August 10th, as the band simultaneously kicks off the American leg of One Direction's "Where We Are" tour. Products will be available in other premium retail venues in the U.S. and around the world shortly thereafter.
