Review - Hard Candy Glamoflauge

I have been on a search for the perfect under eye concealer. I think I have fallen in love with Stay Don't Stray from Benefit but I still wanted to test out a few more before I decided to stick with that one. The price is a bit much for the Benefit concealer so I was hoping to find one that wouldn't break the bank. I have read a lot of positive reviews about Hard Candy's Glamoflauge Concealer and the inexpensive price made me super excited to try it out. It was sold out in the store when I went to Walmart so I decided to order it from Walmart.com for only $6.00 with free shipping.

When I first tried it out I made a mistake by adding a TON of product. Believe me when I say that a little goes a long way with this concealer. I purchased the lightest shade and it matched perfectly with my skin. The second I applied it on my skin I already felt how heavy it was going to be. I did not like the feeling. It did not blend well so I started over and applied a tiny bit. Even when I applied the smallest amount possible it felt super heavy. Before I even walked out the door I noticed a ton of creasing going on. I went my entire shift at work with it on and I was not pleased. I will not be purchasing this product. I really wanted to like it but it is too heavy for me and perhaps I will save it if anyone needs help concealing one of their tattoos.

Shopping Goodies - MAC Me Over

Hello! Sorry for the lack of posts! I have been extremely busy getting everything ready for Zoe's 1st Bday Party! I still have a long list of stuff to do. It will all be worth it in the end! So I was super excited for the MAC Me Over collection that came out last week. I love the whole concept behind the whole collection. Here are some of the goodies that I picked up!

- Runway Red Lipstick - This color is beyond gorgeous. I love a good red lipstick and I have fallen in love with this one. I wore it out for a nice of fun Karaoke and it did not budge. It is a bit darker than Ruby Woo lipstick and I am sad that I did not get a backup! 

- Peachstock Lipstick - This color is permanent at PRO stores and I do work right next to the PRO store in SF but I wanted to pick this color up anyway. I can see myself pairing a lot of different lipglosses over this and I can wear it on an everyday basis.

- Social Light Lipglass - It is a soft brown with gorgeous gold sparkles. I love it! Can not wait to wear by itself or on top of different lipsticks!

- MAC 226 Small Tapered Blending Brush - This brush has gotten a lot of amazing reviews. It first came out in the Brunette, Blonde, Redhead collection and after that it was on everyone's "must have" list. It is perfect for doing awesome crease work. I can't wait to try it out.
