Hard Candy Haul/Review!

Hey guys! So I have another haul! I was at Walmart and I had wanted to try out some stuff from Hard Candy sooo here’s a list of the things I picked up:

The Ginormous Lash volumizing mascara -- $6.00

The So Baked Bronzer in hula hula -- $9.00

The Blush Crush Baked Blush in bombshell -- $7.00

The Kal-eye-descope Baked Eyeshadow Duo in rock n roll -- $6.00
Hula hula


rock n roll

Ginormous Lash Volumizing Mascara
Mini review: Firstly, aren’t the names adorable? The Kal-eye-descope? Cute! I wasn’t too crazy about the mascara. It made my lashes look longer and the wand was cool but it didn’t thicken or curl. I have a lot of mascaras that are better than this so I’m going to stick with using those. Plus the second a bit of water touched my face I looked like a bat. I love the packaging on all the products. I think they’re super cute and make other drug store products look dull in comparison! I used the bronzer to contour and I would definitely buy it again if I ever run out. The bronzer and the blush both have some orangey tones to them which I usually don’t like but these two are so wearable and look natural on the skin. The blush is very pigmented and the color is a bronzey brown with pink veining. The eye shadow is not as pigmented as I expected but still has a pretty decent color payoff. Thank you to Princess Feef for giving advice on my lighting situation. I went out in the sun to take these pics and I got a bit burned lol but the sunlight definitely helped with capturing the swatches!
