Review - Hard Candy

If you're a regular visitor or reader on my blog, you will notice I ALWAYS talk about how I love cute packaging. I think its crucial to a product. If a products packaging appeals to me, I tend to buy it :) Thanks to Kristi over at Hard Candy, I was sent some samples to review when I contacted them. I have purchased Hard Candy in the past, I love the fact that their make-up line is very affordable. Thats always great for us College students out there looking for good quality and reasonable prices. They carry everything from Eye Shadows to Nail Polish.

I was sent the Meteor Eyes Baked Glitter Eyeshadow in Supernova (a beautiful Purple),  So-Baked Bronzer in Tropics and a Plumping Lip Gloss in Uptown Girl. I have to say, my favorite out of all three was the Eyeshadow. I love the color, it is an amazingly bold Purple, which just happens to be my 2nd favorite color :) I took a picture of my eye with some black eyeliner and the Supernova eyeshadow. It makes my eye pop, its a wonderful product. So light, sparkly & fun; day OR night.

The Lip Plumping Gloss was very nice too, it doesn't have that sticky feeling like a lot of other glosses do. I just LOVE the tingling feeling it gives me when i wear it. It does plump my lips a nice amount, doesn't over do it. The one thing I enjoy most is that it dries a nice light pink on my lips and doesn't make my lips feel dry. The So-Baked bronzer was cute. Unfortunately, it was too dark for my taste. Even though i am from Sunny Los Angeles, I prefer the nice pale look with dramatic eyes :) So blush or bronzers don't have a place in my bag lol. My sister took over the bronzer and loves it.

One more fun thing, the bronzer and eyeshadow have a nice matte finish and you can put them on wet or dry. I prefer wet for a more intense color. All three of these samples I was sent range from $6 to $9. Hard Candy cosmetics are among my favorite make-up brand and they just launched a new line which is available exclusively at Walmart stores, and Walmart.com. So if you're looking to buy, check them out. Thanks for the samples Hard Candy!
