I was given such an exciting opportunity to do a review on some of Hard Candy Cosmetics products. This was so exciting. I absolutely love Hard Candy and have bought their products in the past and will continue to buy them. One of my favorite things I love about Hard Candy is that all of their products are $10 or less! If you remember I featured them in my Friday Finds: A Buck or Two post.
When I opened up my little box of goodies I saw three different products, two of three I hadn’t tried before and was really excited to try. I was given Glitteratzi, a shimmer body spray, a box of a Eye Tattoos, which contains three different eye shadow sets and Plumping Serum, a volumizing lip gloss.
Of course the first thing I opened was the product I had used before, the lip gloss. I’ve always been a fan of Hard Candy’s lip gloss and this was no different and it never fails. The rich thick lip gloss that brings out the plumpness in your lips did just that and one of the best parts is that it lasts for awhile. The gloss isn’t too heavy and it doesn’t leave your lips feeling sticky like some lip glosses I’ve used in the past. It left my lips satisfying and I didn’t have to reapply for a few hours, which is always good.
The Glitteratzi shimmer body spray was pretty neat. I actually opened that this passed weekend for my daughter for a Halloween party she went to. That day we both used it. You do have to shake it up before using it so that it’s not clumpy when you spray it and the best part about it is that it didn’t leave me feeling sticky, which I loved. And the drying time for the spray was really quick. It was also pretty easy to come off.
Now for the last product, the eye tattoos. I actually never heard of these before and so this took me a while to try and put on. It wasn’t hard to put on, I think I was more afraid on how it would look. The eye tattoo itself was a pretty easy process and didn’t take much to put on. Unlike regular tattoos, these didn’t need water, which I liked. After placing and positioning the tattoo on your eyelid you then need to just smooth it out and peel it off. You have that option to keep the design like it is or blend in the colors to make a unique look. Once done all you need to do is use a setting powder and the small brush that is provided to seal your look so you can wear it. I’m very impressed! I actually went to my local Wal-Mart to see if they had these along with another body spray for Princess. They had the body spray, but not the eye tattoos so I will be ordering from their site soon. You can’t go wrong with Hard Candy Cosmetics. Not only are they affordable for all of us divas in this economy on a budget, but their products are well worth it and do its justice and more.
I like that their makeup isn’t just for the young teen girls, it’s pretty much for every girl, woman out there. If you check out their other items, you’ll notice the cool vibrant colors of their eye shadows, nail polish, etc. What’s cool is that all their products can be found at your local Wal-Mart.
