Brand Bests #9 - Hard Candy

Already Brand Bests #9? That was fast! But so many great brands and products, I'm not surprised. Hard Candy has probably the cutest packaging and products I have ever seen. Very reasonable, as it is sold at Wal-Mart, and most are good quality products. Have heard some aren't as great as others, but that's why I have these kind of posts. To let my readers know, from my experience, what I think would be great products for everyone. These are my personal favorites that I tend to use the most. Know that this is from my experience with each item that I have loved from this brand.

Hard Candy Mouthing Off Lipgloss ($6)

This is the only picture I could find. This is not the color I own. The one I have is a dark brown with shimmer called Mocha. Wasn't too sure about the dark brown at first, but it's definitely sheer like it says. After about an hour having it on, it completely smoothed out my lips! That was a pleasant shock! I love it so much, I wear it all the time right now, and I will be buying a back up for Fall. Haha.

Hard Candy Just Nails Nail Polish ($5)
MmmHmm.. Yes there nail polishes are amazing. So easy to apply, never a struggle. I have this color and I love it so much! For $5 you cannot go wrong with these polishes. I wish they would come out with more exclusive or limited edition colors, that would be awesome. Also the plastic ring is a bonus that I wear occasionally.

Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Tiki ($9)
I really believe for blushes and bronzers, you don't have to spend a lot to get a great one. This one is 9 bucks, and gives me a glowy look to my skin. Not too much shimmer, which I like. It's more pretty than the picture looks. Trust me. This one got my through Summer, and will give me a little color in the Fall.

Hard Candy Sheer Envy Face Primer ($8)

If you are frequent reader of my blog, then you know why this is in the Brand Bests. If you're not, you're missing out. Click here to see the review I did of this primer.

EOTD - Golden Night

 I have been wanting to do a EOTD with gold for a while, and I thought this week would be perfect since New Years Eve is coming up. This was so simple, just a gold and dark brown look. You could definitely use black eyeshadow instead of the dark brown, it's all about your own preference. So here is what I used:

- Too Faced Shadow Insurance 
- Shiseido Cream Eye Shadow Duo
- Yaby Cosmetics Pearl Paint Eye Shadow in Antique
- Napoleon Perdis Eye Shadow Quad 13 (Used the Darkest brown for outer lid, Lightest for Highlight)
- Milani Eye Tech Liquid Eyeliner in Black
- Chanel Inimitable Mascara in Black

Let me know what you think! :)
