Foundations -Hard Candy -Glamoflauge full coverage foundation 16 hr wear oil free

This is a foundation for those who like foundation thick like spackle. You get .67 ounce for $6.00 with a large doe foot applicator like the Tarte Shape tape. It comes in several shades (online). Its super thick and creamy and smells like plastic. I picked the wrong shade so its a bit hard to shade match but I found this hard to apply, it dries fast, and if you go over a spot that has dried, you'll literally remove the foundation if you go over it. So building up coverage may be a no-go.

Not my cup of tea, I'm a light coverage gal but have melasma that is hard to lighten. Too thick, and also hard to completely remove, so pass.



Primer/ Corrector -Hard Candy -Sheer Envy Mattifying Fix-It Serum

I have monstrous oily skin and hardly anything keeps it matte because my oils can eat through any product on my face. Realistically nothing can actually keep me matte for hours so I only look for products that slow down how soon I get oily. I can get oily as fast as 30 minutes after applying makeup. Certain primers help me stay oil free for at least an hour. This one however really has helped me the most. It keeps my makeup looking fresh for at least 4+ hours. It goes on smooth but dries matte. It doesn't leave your skin feeling dry at all. I use this first before I layer a primer stick on on top of it. I find that if i layer primers on my skin it helps my foundation look less cakey and makes everything last longer on my skin.

Eye Shadow -Hard Candy -Fierce Effects Shadow Duo Eyeshadow

These shades look beautiful but they’re weak sauce. They go on really faint, aren’t buildable, and crease even if you use a primer and setting spray from HC. There is SO much fallout. I really really wanted to like them but I ended up giving them away to my best friend who is just learning makeup so she could practice with crap eyeshadow you don’t care if you waste by taking it right off.

Brows -Hard Candy -Brow Palette

Honestly it wasn’t that great. The color is an ok match but the brush was hard to use and the packaging is just frustrating. There’s no way to hold it gracefully and what’s with the mirror? The powder fades and there’s a fair amount of fallout.
