On my nails *I will do a separate post for NOTD* Confetti's Black Tie & Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear in Pinky Ring
And here's how I got this look:::::

FACE:
CHEEKS:
  • I am darkening my foundation due to tanner chest using NYC Sunny Bronzer lightly dusted all over my face (Using my e.l.f. Powder Brush)
  • I used Hard Candy's Fox In a Box in Hot Flash on my cheeks! (Using e.l.f.'s Complexion Brush) *I will be reviewing this and other Hard Candy products in the next coming days, stay tuned*
  • Then I contoured slightly using NYC Sunny
EYES: (admit it this is the only reason you read this)
  • I primed using e.l.f.'s NEW eyelid primer in Pearl
  • Then I used e.l.f'.'s Cream Eyeshadow in Black Licorice *sliver only* as a base
  • Next, I used my Wet N Wild Spoiled Brat trio for the colors... but any nice shimmery sliver will work with a BRIGHT fun pink
  • I applied the sliver from this trio all over the lid to the crease (applied using my e.l.f. Professional Eyeshadow Brush)
  • I then applied the pink on the outer third, the outer crease, and the outer V and BLENDED BLENDED BLENDED (Applied using the Sonia Kasuk Large Crease Brush)
  • I tightlined using Wet N Wild's Gel Liner (Applied using e.l.f.'s Bent Liner Brush)
  • I LIGHTLY ran my Milani Liquif'Eye in black on my lower lash line
  • I then curled my lashes and applied Hard Candy's Big Curls Don't Cry Waterproof Mascara *Review coming on this soon in my Hard Candy Series STAY TUNED!!*
LIPS:

  • I lined my lips using e.l.f.'s Lip Liner and Blending Brush in Natural
  • Then I applied Revlon's Colorburst Lipstick in Warm Me Up
  • Then topped it with Hard Candy's Glossaholic in Gorgeous! *Review pending... Stay tuned!!!!*
And that's it today beauties! Hope you enjoyed it... 

Hard Candy Review: Welcome Matte Mattifying Powder

Hey my Hard Candy loving Beauties!!!!

So, we are stepping into CandyLand today, for the first time. Doing an UPDATED review on... Hard Candy's Welcome Matte Mattifying Powder!

First things first... What the product looks like:



Love the impressed logo <3 *swoon*
Secondly:
What does Hard Candy promise this product will do??
  • So, Hard Candy states that this Mattifying Powder with micro-pigment will 'float' over skin, setting makeup, eliminate shine, and last all day!
Thirdly:
This is highly important beauties.... How much does this cost???

  • $8.00 (available exclusively at WalMart)
Lastly:
The review... What oh What do I *me* Think of this product:
  • Ok, so I reviewed this product actually twice before, and to be honest I messed up my reviews, I am actually removing them because they just aren't fair! So, I have been using this product pretty consistently though out the HOT HOT Florida summer. *Note: I HAVE OILY SKIN, THIS IS A REVIEW ON MY SKIN AND MY SKIN ALONE, I AM CLAIMING THIS PRODUCT WILL WORK THE SAME ON YOU, BUT THIS IS MY EXPERIENCE* So, to break it down does it live up to the promises Hard Candy makes, well... lets check them out individually...
  •  Does it 'float' over the skin?
  • Yes, it provides a light setting over my foundation, and evens everything out to matte, seamless finish. 
  • Does is 'set' your makeup/ foundation?
  • Yes, it sets everything, though I believe almost any powder 'sets' foundation!
  • Does it 'eliminate unwanted shine'?
  • YES! YES! YES! YES! I throw this in my purse, and use it throughout the day now to eliminate that wonderful shine that loves to show up after I even stepped outside from it being so dang! hot outside! It soaks up the oil, and re-sets everything to a beautiful matte finish! I also does not seem to add any cakiness on my face!!
  • Does it 'last all day'?
  • Um, no! At least not in 100 + degrees! This is the only time I have personally tested this product, and no, it does not last all day! Does it last long, um, I would say I could go about 3-4 hours without touching up. Although, I must say, though it doesn't last all day, I am still finding myself reaching for this!   
CONCLUSION::
So, in conclusion beauties.... I definitely recommend this product is your are looking for a mattifying powder at an affordable price. And, in the best recommendation I can give, I will be REPURCHASING this when I hit pan! So, have a beautiful day beauties and enjoy!!!

Hard Candy Review: 1st things 1st, a little history

hey Beauties!
Ok, so some of you may or may not be familiar with Hard Candy Cosmetics...

So, from some of my research I have determined this company was found in 1995, then sold in 1999, then was sold in duty free shops. Then in 2009, they made a BRILLIANT move and decided to make their product available to all of us beauties by selling it in non other then WalMart. Now, in 1995 the nail polish I believe was the only product and was brought to fame by Alicia Silverstone mentioning wearing it on The Late Show with David Letterman, then the owners appeared on the MTV show House of Style several times.
So, where are they today? Well, they are sold exclusively at WalMart and online through Hard Candy's Website. They range, at least in my experience, from around $4-$10 per product.

So, I own a few products from this company and I must say I am impressed! I love MOST of my products that I have bought from them. Now I have previously reviewed the Welcome Matte Mattifying Powder from them, but I am updating that review in this series....

Ok beauties, now to get to the reviews. Follow me for my reviews. I will be posting pretty regularly, so keep checking. Also, let me know in the comments what you think of your Hard Candy Products!
