Hard Candy Lite Bright Whipped Brightening Concealer ($6) is a new whipped click pen concealer that launched for Fall/Winter 2012. Hardy Candy markets the formula as an illuminating concealer to brighten eyes and reduce the appearance of dark circles.
I’m a complete concealer h0r so of course I had to get my hands on this as soon as humanly possible. After a variety of trips to the
evil empire Walmart I was finally able to track this down. Believe me heading to Walmart more than once is like removing teeth from my mouth without anesthetic, god help me. But for concealer I was willing to do it.
Let’s take a look!
E.L.F. Studio Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow ($3) is a new shimmering cream shadow release from the brand available in seven shades. That’s the problem by the way…seven shades? We need more variety guys! These rock!
These soft, fluffy mousse-like shadows are incredibly lightweight and have the perfect amount of lovely sparkle for the Holidays.
Take a look!
Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara is a new volumizing mascara that offers a clump free finish. I’m not sure I really have issues with clumps…don’t get me wrong there are mascaras that clump occasionally but I blame the formula or applicator not necessarily my lashes. That’s not to say that clumping isn’t an issue some folks experience, in that case you might be seeking out a formula that will offer you a clump free finish.
On top of not having issues with clumps I wasn’t terribly excited to try Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara. I have not come across a single mascara from the Lashblast Collection that I actually like. For all the marketing and all the bells and whistles that comes along with their massive applicators I typically end up with a more natural fringe of lashes after use. You’d think all that fanfare would give me some drama but sadly, the finish from a Lashblast Masara is typically mediocre and just falls flat of what one would expect especially because most come with those HUGE club style applicators that look like they could do some major damage.
Perhaps Clump Crushed by Lashblast will change my mind?
The MAC Glamour Daze Holiday 2012 Collection features five shades of limited edition lipglass. I actually didn’t run across a shade I had to own from this lot but I’m heading to counter sometime this week to check out the other three that I haven’t yet seen in person.
I did get my hands on Talk Softly to Me and Flight of Fancy but unsure if you technically need either.
Take a look! Perhaps you’ll find a shade to love.
Tarte LipSurgence Collector’s Set in It’s a Wonderful Life is a QVC Exclusive Set for Holiday 2012. No worries if you love this set and dislike shopping QVC as Tarte has a few renditions of it available at a variety of locations such as Sephora and Ulta.
This set features five full size Tarte Lip Surgence Natural Lip Tints in a variety of shades for $34. It’s quite a deal considering all of the tints are full size and should you buy one it would set you back $24. So for an extra $10 you can get four more tints!
