Beauty on a Budget

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.

Essence Breaking Dawn Part 2 Glitter Eyeliner Review & Swatches

Essence Breaking Dawn Glitter Eyeliner

Essence Breaking Dawn 2 Glitter Eyeliner is one of two new sparkling eyeliners available for a limited time launched with Essence’s new Breaking Dawn Park 2 Makeup Collection.

Anyone remember being obsessed with Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liners? I couldn’t be alone in that addiction…right? Anyone? Although at this point, I realize a heavily encrusted lash line full of glitter isn’t exactly the height of makeup sophistication but hey, I had fun with it and that’s what matters right?

No worries though Essence’s Glitter Eyeliner is a little more subtle.
