Hard Candy Makeup Summer Collection

I love makeup, it gives me a chance to dress up and feel better about myself, and I am always looking for new and better makeup items to make sure my morning makeup routine can be done fast, and still looks great. I would like to introduce you all to Hard Candy, a great makeup company. Here is a little information about the company from the website:

"We are continuing to build a trend driven, superior formulation, edgy, affordable collection of cosmetics. We have listened to our fans and recently we have launched a collection of eyeglass frames and an apparel wardrobe that fits right into the Hard Candy lifestyle. We are for the fun, edgy, irreverent, cool consumer who wants to make a memorable entrance without busting the bank."  Hard Candy amazes with off the charts products, intense color, wild packaging and a flair for the dramatic. The name invokes all things girly and sweet while the brand brings in an edge and attitude. Truly the best of both worlds.

We turn heads, create buzz, lift energy, start conversations, end boredom and give good face. We push the envelope and pull in new fans. We will steer the industry to bigger and better.. We will quench the desire for a new and fun cosmetic line and leave women thirsting for more. Hard Candy makes a difference! And we have never and will never test on animals - ever.

 I was very fortunate to be able to try out two of the new Hard Candy eye and lip cream pencils:

Shade Name: after hours

Color your world with these rich, smooth 12hr waterproof eye shadow crayons. Vibrant, pearlescent colors that pop for a look that truly creates eye-popping drama. Longwearing color glides on effortlessly and sets in seconds without creasing, smearing or smudging.  The easy-to-use, precise application makes it easy to touch up, layer or take your look from day-to-night.

Shade Name: chic

Get glossy with ALL GLOSSED UP lip crayon! An amazingly shiny, cushiony lip gloss infused with the long lasting stay power of stain. Pigments and stain are bathed in a silky-smooth, non-drying silicone base that leave lips feeling soft and supple all day.

My Review:
Now I love makeup, but it can get boring sometimes, I love to shake things up to keep them fresh. I like to try new things but I have been in a bit of a rut as of late. I was very fortunate to be able to review two, of Hard Candy eye crayon and lip crayon.

I received two colors I would not have picked for myself, so I was a bit concerned about how they would look on me. I have dark brown eyes and I tend to stick with browns and more browns. (I know I know, I have to change it up) I received a Hard Candy eye crayon in the color Alter Hours, this is a dark purple that is pretty and very bold. 
With my dark brown eyes, I usually shy away from dark colors, but I wanted to give it a try. The crayons were very easy to use and apply. My eyes looked bold and very pretty.  I can see myself quickly putting on some eye makeup and running out the door. The color worked with my eyes well.  I don't know why I did not try darker colors sooner. The purple and works well with my summer wardrobe.

Now to the pale lip color, the color “chic” is a light nude color that will go with many colors. Even though the color was light you could see a hint of color on my lips. I loved the smooth and glossy look of my lips after application.  I loved that the colors did not crease or run, and stayed on all day. I hate to have to reapply makeup, and I did not with Hard Candy and that is a great thing.

 If you are looking for some great summer eye shadow, I would recommend Hard Candy, the cost for the eye crayons and lip crayons are $5.00 each. Yes just $5! I know you may be thinking that this may not be the quality you depend on with your makeup because it is so affordable… but that is not the case. The Hard Candy makeup is quality makeup at great prices. I will surely be purchasing more Hard Candy makeup, and with these great prices I can afford to pick up a bunch of new colors. And you will love the eye and lip crayons! Make sure to check out the great selection of other makeup essentials as well .
