Hard Candy CC Correction Creme Review & Swatches

Hard Candy CC Creme

The new Hard Candy CC Correction Creme will be available at Walmart shortly. CC Cream is coming at us slowly for Spring but we’ll see a bigger push come Summer and Fall 2013 I’m sure.

I think of CC Cream as a low calorie version of the BB Cream. Most of the ones I tried have a thinner texture but promise better skin benefits and anti-aging ingredients.

I personally prefer the rich, creamy texture of a BB Cream compared to the lighter, thinner one of a CC. I was highly interested in testing out Hard Candy CC Correction Creme as it is one of the first (Olay’s renamed CC Cream not counting) CC Creams we’re seeing in the budget world at the moment. And really one of the first CC Creams anywhere aside from Juice Beauty’s new Stem Cell CC.

It’s interesting that Hard Candy is the pioneer in this market. You’d think some higher end brand would have cracked the market first.

Here’s a look.

Wet n Wild Take On the Day Eyeshadow Primer Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild Take On the Day Eyeshadow Primer

Hey! Guess what? Wet n Wild Take on the Day Eyeshadow Primer isn’t half bad! Introduced with the Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection this five dollar eyeshadow primer is a bit higher costing than Wet n Wild’s typical offerings but proves a worthy contender in the beauty budget world.

I was personally disappointed by most of the Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection. It was expensive for the brand and the quality just wasn’t there which is unusual as Wet n Wild does have some rather great offerings. After trying the lipstick and the eyeshadow quad I was a little skeptical about the shadow primer but I’m delighted with it.

Take a peek!

Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Review & Swatches

Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer 3

I’ve never tried Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer so I thought I’d give it a test prior to trying the Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream as it would be easier to compare the two formulas.

Companies are a little guilty of switching around the names of their Tinted Moisturizers and simply adding “BB Cream” to new packaging so I wasn’t sure if Aveeno was doing the same thing. Both Covergirl and Olay have done this recently…!

After I review Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer I’ll follow up with my review of the Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream to compare the two formulas.

Here’s my thoughts on the tinted moisturizer formula and I’ll follow up shortly with my thoughts and comparisons to the BB Cream formula!
