Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer2

Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer ($6) is one I can use at the moment after one too many late nights and hey, for $6 bucks maybe it’ll replace my $42 YSL Touche Eclat. Uh yeah, that’s not going to happen but a girl can dream.

Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer feels like a rerun in my makeup life as I have this strong sense of deja vu about it. It seems like something Hard Candy released in another life but repackaged?! I’m not sure why I feel that way but yeah…!

Take a look!

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous 12 Hour Long Wear Face Primer Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous 12 Hour Long Wear Face Primer

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous 12 Hour Long Wear Face Primer ($6) is a newly formulated long wearing Sheer Envy facial primer that’s launching with the Hard Candy Spring/Summer 2015 Collection.

I should mention I am NOT a fan of Sheer Envy. The color correcting formulas that launched a few months ago are very poorly formulated and pill like mad. Do not want, do not like. So I must admit I was very skeptical of the Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous 12 Hour Long Wear Face Primer considering it has the same name as the original formula. If you recall Sheer Envy started off life as a lotion-like formula. Later on when Hard Candy introduced a few more versions the texture and formula was more of a silicone primer.

The newest edition combines both silicones and a creaminess that I actually liked and enjoyed using and even feel confident recommending!

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous Translucent Finishing Powder Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous Translucent Finishing Powder

Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous Translucent Finishing Powder ($6) is a new transparent silica that launched with the new Hard Candy Spring/Summer 2015 Makeup Collection recently which is available exclusively at Walmart and Walmart.com.

There’s definitely something to be said about $6 translucent finishing powder that you can easily purchase at your local Wally World. As far as pressed silica powder goes it is a little lacking at the drugstores. Don’t get me wrong there are plenty of pressed powders and loose ones but simple silica powder? Not really. I’m surprised we didn’t a round of “HD” drugstore products by now, guess the drugstore missed the mark there.

None the else if you’re on a beauty budget six bucks might seem fab but my experience with Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous Translucent Finishing Powder was meh!

Chapstick Mango Sunrise Review

Chapstick Mango Sunrise

Chapstick Mango Sunrise Lip Balm is one of three new Tropical Paradise flavors that are launching for the Spring 2015/Summer 2015 season at drugstores. I feel Chapstick has come such a long way and it isn’t nearly as waxy and dense as it once was (But don’t tell anyone I’m still a Labello fangirl).

Remember that story I told you, about the time I ate an entire tube of Cherry Chapstick when I was like 4 or something?

That could potentially happen again with Chapstick Mango Sunrise and I’m not the least bit ashamed. I eat shimmer on my corn flakes in the morning why can’t I snack on delicious Chapstick? And I’m sure some of you would happily admit to eating lipstick (sans lead haha).
