HARD CANDY GLAMOFLAUGE CONCEALER REVIEW- $6
Because I was so pleasantly surprised with the Glamoflauge, I obviously had to try two other products that looked interesting. All the packaging was so pretty after all! #sucker.
HARD CANDY LASH INK 4 DAY LASH STAIN REVIEW- $7
Lash Ink promises to be a lash stain, lasting up to 4 days. Having about 70 seconds to put make up on after chasing a toddler all morning, I always look for short cuts. If I can put mascara on less, I'm all for it. The plastic brush is great for separating lashes and the consistency is rich with a dark black color. The first day wearing the lash ink was good, it didn't budge or smear. I washed my face that night and it didn't stream down my cheeks. I woke up and had exactly 6 lashes the next morning! All my lashes had clumped together. They were still long and black but I had to pull them apart with a floss pick (a clean one). After that ridiculous process, my lashes looked pretty good again and I didn't feel like I needed more. Day 2 was fine, no dark circles caused by rubbing my eyes. Next morning was back to clump city so I removed the lash ink with a little olive oil. Basically, this mascara is great for a long day or night out but I would suggest taking it off at night. I will probably also use this mascara for festivals or pool days because it was extremely humidity and water proof. Click image to shop.
HARD CANDY HIGHLIGHT & CONTOUR CHEEK DUO REVIEW- $6
The next thing that caught my eye was the contour bronzing stick. I see all these contouring tutorials and think: who has time for that?! I also worry about looking too overdone or embarrassing myself with dark unblended spots on my face. I actually love this product too. One side has a mild highlighter with a light concealer consistency and one side is a shimmery cream bronzer. You can do all the contours with one side and then flip the stick to accentuate your highlights. Another method, and how I do it, is to place the stick flat on your cheek with the light side above your cheekbone and swipe, creating a line with dark and light stripes. Then just blend with your fingers. I also contour my forehead with this, creating the dark/light line above each eyebrow with the dark side closer to my temples. Then blend. It's not a full contour effect but it adds dimension and a little color without looking like I'm wearing a ton of makeup. All for under 30 seconds and $6.
Have you tried any of these products? I am curious to hear what you thought.
