Hard Candy Love


You guys!  Oh Em Gee!!  So, I know y'all know and love her royal highness, PinkLouLou right?!  If you don't, you should!  She posted a week or two ago about some Hard Candy products she tried and I decided to try a few products after seeing her positive reviews of them.  

I scooted off to my local Wal-Mart since Hard Candy Cosmetics are sold exclusively at Wallyworld.  Fun times!  After perusing the HC section quite a bit I decided to try the Just Face It foundation.  I haven't used an actual foundation in YEARS.  I have just been using a tinted moisturizer, which don't get me wrong I love, but it was time to see if something else would work better.  And, hello!  I see a HUGE difference in the way my skin looks and feels with the foundation as opposed to just a tinted moisturizer.  Amazing!!



The next thing I tried was this Glow all the way luminzer that is infused with 24karat gold!  I got the 'dollface' color which is a very soft pastel pinky kind of color since I tend to stay away from the bronzy or coppery colors just because I think they look ridiculous on me.  I mean if the rest of my body is pink, I think its stupid for my face to be brown. Maybe that's just me though...lol  So I use this luminzer once I have the foundation on.  I put it mainly on my cheeks for that 'dewy' fresh faced look.  Again, LOVE this product.



I know I have talked before about how hard mascara is for me.  I have very sensitive eyes and have to use waterproof mascara, there have only been a couple kinds that I've found that don't irritate my eyes terribly and I'm happy to say I can now add Lashaholic to the list!  I really can't say enough good things about this mascara.  It goes on smooth, doesn't clump, doesn't flake off, looks incredible and doesn't irritate my sensitive peepers! 


One of my favorite shadows that I've used recently is this Hard Candy duo.  It has sparkles built into it.  Something I will say is that this shadow tends to not stay unless I use a ton of primer on my lids.  But since I know this about this shadow I do use a primer on my lids every time.  After I figured that part out, I love this shadow.  It goes on evenly, and it stays all day.

And voila!  This is my Hard Candy face! I love.  Seriously.
