Hard Candy Eye Sparklers Eyeshadow Set for Holiday 2012

Hard Candy Eye Sparklers Eyeshadow Set1

Here’s a sneak peek at the new Hard Candy Eye Sparklers Eyeshadow Set that was released for Holiday 2012. As you know Hard Candy released a few gift sets for Holiday 2012 that I recently showed you in a past post.

This set features three palettes for a mere $5 bucks so beauty budget fans will be quite happy that they can either haul all three for themselves or break the set up and gift to friends.

If you have a younger girl or teen in your life this is a nice stocking stuffer as well!

Take a look!

Avon Foot Works Pomegranate Chocolate Collection Review

Avon Foot Works Pomegranate Chocolate Collection

The Avon Foot Works Pomegranate Chocolate Collection ($12.99) would make a rather delightful stocking stuffer. I purchased one for my sister recently, it arrived, I proceeded to fall in love with it, and selfishly kept it for myself.

I do solemnly swear I felt a heap guilty about that so I ordered another one on Cyber Monday for her stocking. See? I’m not all greedy….!

This is a nice small gift idea for a teacher, a mail girl (if you have one!), or as a stocking stuffer.

Take a look!

Hard Candy Holiday 2012

Hard Candy Holiday 2012

Beauty budget ladies and lads gather round as Hard Candy Holiday 2012 is coming atcha soon (or maybe your Walmart already has some of these gift sets).

Last year (and the year before) finding Hard Candy’s Holiday Collection was a little bit of a challenge so here are some helpful hints.

  • Look for the gift sets around the Holiday Gift Sets and Decorations at Walmart. These sets aren’t always located in the beauty aisles or even by the Hard Candy display so look around where there are gift sets or decorations and you might just fine them.
  • Look for them on end caps or even front caps. Sometimes Walmart has special displays of the sets on end caps so you have the kinda walk down the beauty aisle and look behind it to locate them.
  • When all else fails, order online as they are already available at Walmart.com

Here’s a quick peek at what Hard Candy has in store for us for Holiday 2012.

e.l.f. Studio Waterproof Eyeliner Crayon

E.L.F. just launched a new Studio Waterproof Eyeliner Crayon ($3) in 7 shades. E.L.F. is really on top of things lately and seems to have a new product launch nearly every other day.

I’m not really sure I want to try these liner pencils as they are a jumbo size but who knows they might be an excellent budget pick!
