Hard Candy Spring Collection Haul

Hi there gerber daisies!

And who is ready for Spring?! Of course you know I am. Unfortunately I live in Portland, where we experience a seemingly endless gray drizzle most of the year. Of course right now it is the worst and so begins my annual let’s-move-to-Scottsdale Arizona rant. Do I know anyone in Scottsdale? NO. Have I ever been to Scottsdale? NO. Would I move there in the blink of an eye after 4 months of nonstop rain and the relentless use of a Happy Light? Why, YES. Yes I would.

One of the only things that keeps me sane during these endless rain-fests is the promise of beautiful Portland summers. And recently, I was sent a lovely box of brand spanking new Hard Candy goodies from the spring collection. What a way to lighten up a dark Portland day!

Here are the goods!

Baked Powder Highlighting Trio in Make the First Mauve

This highlighting trio comes with three shades that create a beautiful, sculpted, glowy cheek! This set also comes with a brush which is really reat quality.

Overall I really like this product. I used the farthest right shade as a blush, the middle shade as a cheek-topper on the apples of my cheeks and the far left shade as a traditional highlight. The effect is gorgeous.

Stroke of Gorgeous 12-Hour Smudge Proof Felt Tip Eyeliner

I have not tried this eyeliner yet but I promise to report back!

Sheer Envy Redness Relief Face Serum

I do not have much trouble with redness but I am sure this will come in handy during the summer months! Green Tea and Cucumber would be so soothing! I plan to actually put this stuff in the fridge and use it cold.

Just Glow All Over Body Luminizer

First of all, this product smells AMAZING. Beachy, coconutty and fresh. It comes with a pump and it absorbed into the skin nicely, comparable to a light body oil/gel hybrid. It does leave behind a subtle sparkle

Swatched:

Glitteratzi Glitter and Chrome Eyeshadow Duo in Mercury Rising

This product is really stunning! The “chrome” end is super opaque and a really gorgeous rose gold shade. The glitter is SUPER beautiful and comparable to the Stila Glitter and Glow maybe just a little bit less saturated. But at $7 a pop, I might have to pick up a couple more of these colors!

I am so excited to continue to use these products into the spring. Maybe if I start now, it will happen sooner!
