I just started using this product a few days ago. So far I love how my skin feels and it does seem to be lightening my dark circles. The tube is annoying but I'm figuring out how to control it. Lol. So far I say it's a good product. Will edit my review when more time passes.
Lips -Milani - Lip Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Gloss Pencil in 05 Hot Flash

I have this in hot flash which is a bright red metallic color. Absolutely stunning. It's got a matte texture yet ultra metallic shine. Slightly sticky on the lips but that seems like it would aid in it's lasting power. Haven't worn it for an extended time yet but I will be new years eve. A lot of the reviews have been saying they don't like the pencil form and I agree that I hate losing product but... I really can't think of another form they could make it in that would be usable. I suppose you could depot it like a nyx pencil but how would you apply? Anyway it's way more awesome than I could have hoped for and I will be purchasing more colors!
I use this all the time and I love it. My shadow used to crease and fade and now it's not a problem at all. Even when I apply all black shadow I use this as a base, then a black base and blend black shadow into it and it all stays put all day. No creasing. It also allows you to build super vibrant colors over it. You can use a teeny bit and blend out or you can go thicker and make a very pale base. It all works for me. I have the skin toned one as well and have the same results with it although I reach for the white one more out of habit.
Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

Very thick consistency in a tiny tub. I didn't like the way it felt and it doesn't seem like it does a whole lot. For the amount of cash I shelled out and tiny tub I thought it should really show at least some result. Fail.
Primer/ Corrector -Hard Candy - Sheer Envy Skin Perfecting Primer

Well this is only the second primer I've tried. I definitely like it over the loreal one in the little pot. It does seem greasy at first but it dries nice and powdery feeling. Doesn't look like much on it's own but as soon as I start applying my concealer over it there's a huge difference. I have to use much less product and can cover much more area with it. Everything just glides on. It also seems to stay a long time. I will be trying more primers but so far I'm liking this one. Especially for the price.
This is a rare hard candy miss. Can't use the concealer portion because it's so hard and thick it drags my eye skin hard even if I apply with my finger and it refuses to blend. Even if I did use it I couldn't for long because it's a very small amount of product. The eye illuminater doesn't seem like much either. Maybe just a moisturizer? Idk but I'm not risking allowing dark circles to advance by using it very long. Lol.. I'm probably gonna chuck this makeup and I just bought it after waiting for it to come in stock. Wish I would have kept the box to return it!
Blush -Hard Candy - Blush Crush Baked Blush- Bombshell

My new favorite contour color. Run my brush across it twice brush a line down along my contour line. Then use an angled fluffy brush to blend it out. Blends so gorgeous and it's easy to keep the color deep where you want and soft and diffused where you don't. I hate haveing to build up color in layers and this you don't. Also it's the best contour color I've found and the most natural looking for my skin.
Pressed Powders -Hard Candy - Welcome Matte Mattifying Powder
Dollymaeormaynot 12/27/2011 7:12:00 AM
I love this product! Just got it a few days ago since it finally came into stock and I've used it every day since. My regular powder is Mac natural finish (I think that's the name) in dark... Because that's what the sales girl insisted I needed. :( so yeah I hate the Mac powder. It's too dark and it goes oily super fast. I now apply a teensy bit of the Mac and then lightly dust the welcome matte over it. Gives that airbrushy 1950s look I love of flawless soft skin. Even with the tiny bit I use. <3 my new favorite. It's possible that over a foundation and powder that is my shade it may turn my face chalky but over the slightly too tan foundation and the very small amount used it's perfect.
