I was so happy when I saw Hard Candy products being sold at my local Wal-Mart (they are available at all Walmart locations), quality products at an affordable price- NOTHING is over $10! Two things I love about the Hard Candy brand is their massive variety on cosmetics; they have everything from nailpolish to body glitter, and how easily accessible it is to get. No dealing with the craziness of a mall or the hefty pricetag. There's something for everyone and they are constantly adding new products to their lineup such as their new collection for 2010 featuring some of the products below.
Visibly Wet Glossy Lip Pencil's ($6) are AMAZING! They are the convenience of a lipstick and lipgloss in an easy to tote chunky pencil, and they are VERY pigmented! They come in 9 other shades and I will definitely be getting more of these! They really do look glossy on the lips but they have pretty good staying power like a lipstick. (the swatch below doesn't even do it justice, it's a deeper and brighter pink!)
Eye Def Glittering Cream Eyeshadow ($6), I am not a fan of cream eyeshadows to begin with, they never stay on my lids and crease like crazy, but I was hoping this particular one would work out since the color is amazing, but alas, it creased too, even with an eyeshadow primer. However, they do have phenomenal staying power and once dry, can at least provide some sort of shimmer to your lids, albeit they are hard to apply. I tried the shade "Robot" and they come in 7 other shades. If any of you have tried this and have a handle on how to rock this, let me know, I am very curious. :)
