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:

Eyeshadow Collection Mirrored Compact $5.98 US
  • Neutrals
  • Smokey
  • Greens

  • Pinks

They now have bath products in two flavours:

What is your favorite spring/summer lip color?

I'm so excited to break out my spring/summer colors!
Last year I fell in love with MAC Romancin'. Perfect blue based lipstick for my skin tone.

Maybelline Super Stay 10 Hour Stain Gloss in Refreshing Red Review

I can't believe that two years ago I would not be caught dead in red. I felt like it made me look to "old".

Now that I reflect back, I think I was wearing the wrong shades. Since you all asked for my favorites I will start highlighting them. Maybe I will inspire someone to go out and buy their first red lipstick. Let's get started  with one of my favorites Maybelline Super Stay 10 Hour Stain Gloss in Refreshing Red!

The Maybelline Super Stay 10 Hour stain glosses comes in 10 different shades. Ranging from brown to red. The finish is very different compared to your typical lip stains because they are moisturizing and glossy.

Great for anyone who wants to try to find their perfect red because they are buildable.

Think about it this way: One swipe of color suitable for the office. While three swipes of color is suitable for a night out.

In this picture I was wearing three wipes of color. The formula is very light and has a pleasant smell.

 Overall this Stain Gloss is at the top of my list because of its versatility. You can eat, drink, talk you head off and the stain will still be there once the gloss is off. Perfect for someone like me who has to run to meetings and often forgets to apply before I go.

Are you feeling this red?

These are my four picks: 
  1.  Barry M  Bright Pink (279)
  2. L.A Colors Matte 
  3. Funky Fingers Pucci-licious
  4. Funky Fingers Mrs. Robinson
