drugstore makeup: hard candy and maybelline


If you know anything about me at this point, it is that I love makeup! A lot. So, I always get excited when I try out new products. A while back, I picked up a couple of new things from the drugstore - Hard Candy's "That's How Eye Roll" and another shade from Maybelline's Colour Whisper line. Here are some of my thoughts on my latest drugstore buys.

Hard Candy: That's How Eye Roll in Emma-Belle


When it comes to Hard Candy, there are certain products that I can't get enough of and some that totally fall flat. Despite this hit-or-miss track record, I often find myself picking up new Hard Candy products. (Maybe it's because of the super cheap price. I can't resist!) So, when I saw That's How Eye Roll at my local drugstore, I impulsively picked it up. Essentially, it is a cream stick on one end with a glitter rollerball on the other. Layering the two together should make a dramatic, shimmery eye look.

What I love about this product was the cream stick. The shade I chose was a rich maroon that works great as a base. However, I wouldn't recommend that you use it as is. It doesn't take long to crease! Used as a cream base, it is fantastic, though, so this product wasn't a total bust. The glitter rollerball end on the other hand, was a total bust. The product doesn't actually work well on your eyelid. In fact, it barely at all. Very disappointing.

Maybelline: Colour Whisper in Rose of Attraction 


There are so many different drugstore lip products to choose from. Out of all of them, I think the Colour Whispers are my favourites. The colour is so buildable, it's quick and easy to apply (and re-apply) and there is a gorgeous range of shades to choose from. What I love most of all is that they are super moisturizing! This is always a plus. Since the Colour Whispers are so great, I wanted to try another shade. This one is Rose of Attraction. It is a gorgeous rosy-berry shade. It's perfect for going to dinner or a night out. I just love it! I find myself reaching for this a lot lately. It's a beautiful shade with a hint of shimmer. It's just beautiful.

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think of them?

  4. I love makeup too. I own quite a few things from Hard Candy. It's kind of a non-traditional brand, but has great stuff. Thanks for the review.

  15. I've been thinking about trying some of the Color Whisper. Have you tried Revlon Lip Butter before? How does it compare? I feel like they're probably pretty similar products!

    Check out my blog if you get the chance for a new product giveaway, too! :)
