Hard Candy Sheer Envy Coconut Primer Stick ($8) is a new, refreshing facial primer stick that’s a part of the Hard Candy Spring 2017 Collection. This little stick preps makeup for skin with a cool, refreshing feel. Primer sticks like this aren’t new by any means! A few year’s ago they were pretty popular and still are in Asia. You likely read my review for a few already like the DuWop Flight Stick, Skin Food Facial Ice Vita Cooling Stick, Milk Makeup Cooling Water, and E.L.F. Studio Daily Moisture Stick.
But there’s always room for hydrating sticks in my beauty arsenal.
Here’s a review and some good thoughts on the Hard Candy Sheer Envy Coconut Primer Stick.
This little guy will set you back a mere $8 bucks comes housed in a rather pretty ombre aqua chunky twist up tube that houses 0.42 oz of product. This is a water based formula with a light, subtle aquatic scent that’s cool to the touch. It has a smooth, easy glide on my dry skin and feels very refreshing. It’s just as good if not better than Milk’s Makeup Cooking Water Stick plus a fraction of the cost.
You don’t have to limit yourself to using it as a makeup primer in my opinion. It just as easily works as a skincare product as well should you like. The nifty design means you can carry it anywhere with you for quickie touch ups on the go. It’s particularly nice if you travel a lot and the stale air in a plane makes you skin dry. You can just swipe this on and pat gently into your skin and it’ll leave your skin feel soft, lightly hydrated, and cooled but not sticky, tacky, nor oily or shiny. Just about any skin type will benefit from using it as the formula isn’t one that makes you greasy, oil, or dewy. It provides very lightweight hydration that sets a smooth, softened canvas for foundation. I wouldn’t say it prolonged makeup wear but if you suffer from drier cheeks or areas on your face that are less than smooth this acts to add moisture to your foundation has a smooth, soft surface to adhere to. Again, I wouldn’t limit use to priming your face though as you can also use this under your eyes for a little cooling and moisture or anywhere your face needs a little moisture when you’re on the go.
I loved this and would purchase it again!
