Hello, Hard Candy!

Posted by iamglamourpuss at 12:43 AM
I have been coveting this adorable make-up bag from Hard Candy for a while now, so I recently broke down and bought it. I love the zipper pulls, the fabric, the zip pocket inside the top and the size. It's bigger than what you would carry in your purse, but not overwhelming. Perfect for a vacation.

While I was at the store, I came across these beauties, Eye Def cream eyeshadows. The green color, algae, totally sold me! It's full of sparkle and shimmer and once you put it on, it pretty much stays in place! I got the neutral brown so I would have a foolproof basic, but there is an aqua color I see myself owning sometime soon! You apply the color to your lids with a wand, very much like a lip gloss wand. It's quick and easy and dries really fast. I even used my finger to blend it out before it dried completely.

Hard Candy is one of those companies that is reasonably priced, but there are SO many nifty things, I am not sure when I will get around to trying them all! (Hint, hint if you'd like to send some product my way, Hard Candy!) And for you nail buffs, I noticed that they have a clear top coat that makes any polish matte, which I know is a big trend right now. I can't wait to give that a spin!

It's really funny, I was looking at new make-up today on and while I my interest was slightly piqued by Tokidoki, Hello Kitty and Kat von D, I found myself even more excited about my latest Hard Candy acquisitions. I'm all about bang for your buck. And I really adore my sparkly, Eye Def shadows. I do believe that there are drugstore companies that give boutique companies a run for their money and Hard Candy definitely falls into this category.

Last but not least, I've been wearing my Sleek nail polish on my toes for almost 3 weeks now and it still looks while I have some issues with Sleek as a company, I still have to rave about their products.
