E.L.F. Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Jumbo Lip Gloss Sticks

I didn’t expect much from the E.L.F. Jumbo Lip Gloss Sticks since they are part of the Essentials Collection. I dunno about you but I enjoy the Studio line a hell of a lot more than the Essentials one.

But I gotta say it’s the best two bucks I’ve spent in a while. Haul some. You’ll be happy with these.

Hard Candy The Perfect Cover Up Skin Clarifying Concealer Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Skin Clarifying Concealer

You knew I’d be all over Hard Candy Skin Clarifying Concealer didn’t you? Being a concealer junkie, the two newly launched concealers from Hard Candy were high on my list of “must try dat soon”!

Hard Candy Skin Clarifying Concealer is a little confusing to me…skin clarifying mmm a reference to some sort of acne treatment in the formula? Unsure but after smelling it, it does have a Seabreeze kinda scent so it’s possible this is a concealer slash treatment.
