Current Obsession: EyeBoutique Shadow Shields

One thing I hate about smokey eyes is fallout! Especially with pigments or shimmery shadows. I've seen people go to all types of lengths like use tape or tissue to prevent fallout. That's way too much work (in my opinion). My solution is EyeBoutique Shadow Shields ($7.99 CAN) with you can get from Farleyco. I follow them on twitter and I see nothing but good comments about them.

Eliminate eye shadow fallout with hands-free, disposable, time-saving Shadow Shields. Apply these half moon shaped shields under the eye before applying eye makeup to catch any and all excess product that falls. When done, gently remove shield and say Hello… To Flawless Eye Makeup.

I love them because they curve to my eye shape plus they do exactly what they are suppose to: catch all excess shadow that falls out. Also the removal is easy, it did not pull my eye at all. Each package contains 14 shields.

*I used one for both eyes because I did not have a lot of fallout and the shield was not sticky.*

Application Tips:
Remove only top corners to apply. If more adhesion is needed, remove entire top strip
Application of shield doesn’t have to be directly on lash line- it can be applied under the bulge of the eye or wherever most comfortable.

When applying shield, allow backing to crease-it will form a small lip, helping to catch the fallout.

Hard Candy Spring 2013

I recently I had the opportunity to attend the Hard Candy Spring 2013 Launch party in Toronto.
I love Hard Candy! I've reviewed them on the blog before. They have great products which can be found at your local walmart. I took a fellow beauty blogger Rasilla with me to get the scoop on what's new for 2013.

This February you will see Hard Candy apparel in-stores($12 to $18 US). The apparel was fun. Sequins, hearts & stars. Typically the type of items that every girl has in her closet. It's more weekend wear for me because I work in an office. But If you are your a tween/teen it's very cute for school.

Check out some of the new items:

They now have bath products in two flavours:
