Lately, my daughter and I have been on a bit of a makeup kick. From trying to learn contour to just starting to do our makeup every day before we go out to do anything. We haven’t really been that into makeup but now we have watched many videos and read a bunch of tutorials and it’s all we’re wanting to do in our free time. We’ve seen them using many different brands of makeup and we were wondering if other, cheaper brands can do the same thing. One brand we see all the time at Walmart is Hard Candy. We’ve had Hard Candy makeup in the past and were wanting to see the new makeup they have. We received three lip glosses, a glitter eye liner, an ombre baked blush, and primer lotion.
The three different colors of lip glosses we have are Trophy Wife (mauve/pink), Underworld (blue/green), and Risky Business (purple). My daughter doesn’t use very many glosses because she likes more of the matte colors but I do like glosses so I’ve already paired the colors to different outfits I have in my closet. The gloss applicators are a lot different than what you’d think; they’re more like brushes than sponges and they work so well. They are really affordable at $5 each.
The eye liner is a pencil and my daughter likes to use those. We got the abyss glitter pencil and she absolutely loves it. The greatest thing about this pencil is that it comes with a built in sharpener right in the lid! She uses this instead of the one she did use every day! The eyeliner pencils are $4 each.
With the ombre blush, I thought it was perfect to use while we do our contour. We see the girls in the videos putting on blush and we wanted a blush that would work well on the both of us. We got the Punch Ombre Baked Blush and we used it as we were contouring and we have to say, it works really well! The blush itself is $7.
The last product is the Hydra-Prime Primer lotion. I have never used primer in my life but after watching the videos and seeing how much it helped, I tried it and fell in love! It moisturizes your face as well as primes your face so after I took my makeup off, my face was still feeling fresh and not like it usually is after I take my makeup off. The primer lotion is $8. All in all, I have to say, Hard Candy is a really great makeup brand and I know whenever I need more makeup, I’m going to Walmart to get more of this amazing and very affordable brand.
