How Hard Candy Can Get Your Holiday Look On Point!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
November is in full swing and we are almost 2 weeks from Thanksgiving!
Are you ready?  Today I have a round up of new products from Hard Candy, available exclusively at Walmart stores and online at

Face full of Hard Candy!

I've already got my turkey plans and the meal plan laid out - and - I'm doing all that I can to stick to my Weight Watcher's points plan. Fingers crossed.

Now let's meet these new products from Hard Candy. 

 These are 2 makeup primers to set and seal your look. The purple cap on the left is the Hard Candy sheer envy illuminating setting spray in Glow - and I LOVE it. I've been using it constantly as I travel to keep the face I put on at 4 a.m. looking fresh until 9 p.m.

The second is the Hard Candy Sheer Envy Long Wear spray - I do like it, it's light, keeps makeup fresh looking but I like the glowy illuminating sheen of the Sheer Envy Glow!

 These 2 Hard Candy Wet Ever unicorn lip glosses are the least favorite products that I sampled. Aurora, the sheer white lip gloss on the left and Twinkle the pink(le) lip gloss have a very watery consistency. They are intended to be a shiny sheen top coat to a gloss or lipstick, but they have no slip or slickery feel to them. On my mouth, they dried to a bit of a sheeny crust on top of my lipsticks. I SO wanted to love these. Sadly, my experience was not too bueno. Try at your own risk and keep your receipt just in case!

 This little gem is the belle of the ball! Meet Hard Candy Just Glow! Illuminating liquid in Stardust. Holy smokes. This is near exact the Benefit Cosmetics High Beam. Same high glow and highlight without the double digit price! I used this all over! Everywhere! And then some! Get it and get happy!

 Okay, these Poppin'! Pigments are the living embodiment of the farm saying "happier than a pig in mud" - why? Because they are light, glittery, can be used dry or wet, in the hair, on the body, in makeup, as highlight and accent or as a shadow, lip stick, blusher and bronzer and the endless possibilities for these wee loose pigments is endless!

They are loose- I recommend tapping into the lid or your mixing palette or  a tissue to get the best working space with it. Truth, I must need glasses because I can't read the little writing on the bottles to tell you which colors I have. Apologies! But - these are so good and trust me, the beauty lover in your life will want these as a gift and you want them to create your party looks!

Remember, these are exclusively at Walmarts!

 Finally, have some grace for me - these amazing Pure ICE limited edition halloween themed polishes arrived after the event, but - these colors are Thanksgiving perfect with the red and orange.

I will post on the Makeup University Facebook page a pic of my manicure.

You can find Pure ICE at Walmarts, online and Ulta Beauty stores too!
