Hard Candy Review: Sheer Envy Primers (2 of them!)

Hello Beauties!! Continuing with my Hard Candy Review Series (Check out my other reviews here>> Welcome Matte Review )
Today I am reviewing the 2 face primers that I have from Hard Candy!

First things First, what the 2 products look like!

First we have the Sheer Envy (Clear)
I <3 the Hard Candy Packaging!

That's WAYYYY too much to use... Just FYI!

Then what the Purple one looks like:
This is a Skin Illuminating Primer

Once again nice packaging!

Secondly, what Hard Candy promises this product will do?
  • Directly from the Hard Candy website (this is the clear primer) 
  • Sheer Envy Primer helps to even out the skin while reducing shine. Improves foundation application while minimizing skin imperfections. Make-up lasts longer and skin is left velvety smooth.
  • Directly from the Hard Candy website (this is the purple one)
  • Illuminating Primer - A purple tinted, light translucent primer that gives a healthy, luminescent glow. Restores skins natural radiance, smooths skin and gives an overall airbrushed look! Can be worn alone or under makeup. 
Thirdly, what does it cost:
  • Both of these are available at WalMart for $8.00
Lastly, the review! What Do I Think????:
  • Ok, so I am going to start with the Sheer Envy Clear Primer. This is my go to, grab every single day, use till it's gone, then cry because it's gone primer! It does create a smooth canvas, doesn't seem to add any oil, and just helps my foundation last! *I will repurchase this FOR DAMN SURE!
  • Now, the purple one. This is Hard Candy's Sheer Envy Skin Illuminating Primer. This is a no go for me. This product seems chunky, does not blend in well, and actually ends up flaking off... The minute I touch my foundation to my face it flakes and looks like I'm peeling... As for evening out the skin and illuminating it, I see nothing of the sorts. *I will not repurchase, I feel like this is a miss from Hard Candy, sadly too, because I can see the potential of an amazing primer here, but somewhere it fails. 

Ok my beauties, that is my review of the Sheer Envy Primers, I will definitely repurchase the regular Sheer Envy, but pass on the Skin Illuminating Primer as I feel it is a fail! Have a great day!

FOTD: I'm Buck Naked!

Hello Beauties! Today's face of the day is using my Naked Palette!!! Scroll to see how I got this look!

  • So, today was a different face routine kinda so I'm gonna break it down. To see my daily routine you can still click >>> My Daily Face Routine...
  • But today, I primed using Milk of Magnesia all over (See my instructions on how to do this here >> How To Use MOM for Oily Skin)
  • Then I concealed my undereyes using my Physician's Formula Twins Concealers and set with the yellow powder in the e.l.f. Complexion Perfection Compact
  • Then I applied my NEW foundation: Revlon PhotoReady (Ok, So I am testing this to see how I like it and if it will work on my wedding day!) My shade is 004 Nude (applied using my e.l.f. Powder Brush)
  • Then I set everything with my *NEW* powder: Milani The Multitasker Face Powder (Another test product for the wedding!) My shade is 03 Medium (applied using my e.l.f. Complexion Brush)
  • I used my e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzer Duo for both blush and bronzer (I applied my blush using my e.l.f. Powder Brush, then I applied my bronzer using e.l.f.'s Professional Blending & Bronzing Brush)
  • I applied my e.l.f. Eyelid Primer in Champagne all over my lid.
  • Then I used my Naked Palette to achieve the rest of the look!
  • I applied Naked all over the lid (applied using my e.l.f. Professional Eyeshadow Brush)
  • Next I applied Buck in the crease and slightly on the outer V (Using my e.l.f. Professional Crease Brush)
  • Then I applied Smog in the outer V and BLENDED out (applied using my Sonia Kashuk Large Crease Brush)
  • Then I smudged Creep and Buck under my lid and over my Wet N Wild Gel Liner (Liner applied using my e.l.f. Bent Liner Brush, Creep & Buck applied using my e.l.f. Small Angle Liner Brush)
  • I highlighted my browbone using Virgin (Using the Urban Decay Shadow Brush)
  • Then I curled my lashes and applied Rimmel's Glam'Eyes mascara
  • I applied e.l.f.'s Lip Liner & Blending Brush in Natural all over the lips
  • Topped that with e.l.f. Essentials Lipstick in Classy
  • Added a light layer of e.l.f.'s HyperShine LipGloss in Flirt
And that was it ladies!!! Hope you enjoy and will join me in getting Buck Naked!!!!
