he tattoo pro: "I think just as much as people have the choice to be tattooed, they should also have the liberty to look whatever way they want whenever they want." This is your ticket to tattoo freedom!

My Thoughts- Ive tried both these concealers, I  enjoy both of them the same, for me the Hard Candy concealer is a total dupe for the Kat Von D Concealer, both these product are a very thick concealer and a little pea size amount goes a long way. I use this product daily and would highly suggest the Hard Candy one .

Price$12.00 ( 20 Different Colors) 

Savings Difference-$17.50 Difference

My Thoughts-I do like Mac makeup a lot and I do adore the foundation, it does do a great job of making your skin look flawless and fresh, but then again I think Mac is a little over rated and over price, But there always a product out there that does just the same and for me it Revlon color stay foundation , I love this stuff it pretty much does the same as thee mac foundation , the only difference is Revlon offers more colors to  pick from , on the other hand a lot of people dont like the smell of the Revlon foundation , it does seem strong and it smell like paint, but don't let that stop you from buying it , cause it is true worth it.

My Thoughts- I love both Benefit & Hard Candy Boxed powder pretty much the same, I do think Benefit color choice is better both I think they both have there unique differences & colors . If you are look for a budge friendly box powder I would  suggest the Hard Candy ones, the the pigmentation is quite nice, goes on smooth and give you sunkissed skin, just like the Benefit powder & plus  they have super cute packaging.

My Thoughts-I do indeed love Urban Decay so I thought for the price this setting spray would be great , but I was a little disappointed in it, I do think it is a good spray and it does set your makeup, but on my skin it made my skin look like a dewy oil slick kinda, not pretty at all, so I was looking into other setting sprays, and I have been hearing great stuff about ELF , and Elf is a great brand of makeup , so for 3 dollars I figured if it didn't work well , I would be out of any big amount of money and turns out to be one of my holy grain setting sprays. I would recommend this product for anyone looking for a buget friendly spray , to me this works better then any high end setting spray, it leave my setting pretty matte, glowing skin, smooth and flawless.

Hard Candy Fall 2011 Haul

Im so happy I found the new Hard Candy line, since it not suppose to be out til Sept.Click Here  for the whole hard candy blog post and info on it, anyways let begin.

World Balmination ($3.00)-  I got 2 of these, I got  one in Fishnet , a hot pink glossy tinted lip balm/chapstick & Starfish , a peachy glossy tinted lip balm. My thought, overall I like them for three dollar, they are very glossy and not sticky , the one thing I dont like about them is  the color dont show for that tinted look , but you can layer these with lipstick which works well.
L-R( Fishnet, Starfish)
Lashaholic Super Volume Mascara ($7.00)-I'm not a very big fan of the Hard Candy mascara,  but since it new  I had to try it since I've tried the other one.I do like the brush on this mascara, it is a rubber brush and it does separate your lashes nicely,it didn't clump or anything , but the formula can seem wet  and  the brush does have alot of product on it, my thoughts, overall it OK, like most of there mascaras, for me it didn't give me over the top lashes like it claims to do, but it maybe work for others with short lashes, also think this would be a great mascara to use as a base and they layer with a thickening mascara.

Stroke of Gorgeous ($5.00) Im a sucker for felt tip color liners, i love how smooth felt tip liners goes on your eye lids, and I love the fact they come in so many different color. I got the new felt tip liner in Nautical, a really pretty teal color, the color pay off is very pigmented and the felt tip applicater is nice and strong, it does come in two other colors purple and black., My thoughts, overall I really like them for a nice pop of color,  it didnt smear or anything with is a plus , im pretty happy with this liner and would by the other two colors as well.
