Hard Candy

It's official, I am obsessed with the Hard Candy makeup line. Especially their lip products! And this is coming from a girl who doesn't even bother putting on chapstick, much less lip gloss or lipstick. I mean, I have about a trillion lip products, but I just always either forget to put them on, or I put them on and don't like the texture, or I put them on and actually LIKE them, but it wears off in two seconds and I forget to reapply.

My favorite product right now is the Hard Candy Visibly Wet Lip Pencil. Right now I have it in Cupcake, Must Have, and Beauty.

Cupcake, Must Have, Beauty

I really like it because it's got that lip balm feel, the color of a sheer lipstick, and it's fun to apply! (Yay for pencils!) The only problem is it doesn't stay on for too long. :( But I actually remember to reapply this stuff, maybe because it's in pencil form and that's just really cool to me? Idk. Anywho, I just LOVE this stuff, it's the only lip stuff I will use at the moment.

Chyeah new eyeshadow palette yum! Didn't want to post it on the same yucky review for the brushes in case they got contaminated! Anyways, it's the BH Cosmetics 120 color palette, and I think it is the 1st edition? Probably. Anyways, besides the fact that the brushes I used to apply it totally sucked (see below), the colors are very vibrant, don't crease, and stay for quite a while.

Sad Face :(


So, my eye shadows came in the mail the other day, and I also got a Shany 15pc. brush set and all I can say is SUPER DISAPPOINTING!

The eye shadow palette, I LOVE IT, but the brush set had the quality of a dollar store item, if that. Except for what I am assuming are two blush/bronzer brushes, all of the brushes heads' are really slick and plastic-y, like that of a lipstick brush. All. Of. Them. It is impossible to get the eyeshadow to stick to the brush when it is so slick it just falls off. There is no fluffy quality. Even my cheap E.L.F brushes are better quality than that!

Anyhoozle, I'm going to see what I can do about returning these brushes and in the meantime I'll be doing a bit of research on better (but still cheap!) brushes.
