2 days in a row!! I'm hoping this means I'm off to a good start and will stay consistent with returning to the blog. While I've been trying to not purchase much in the way of makeup, skincare or polish this month - actually this year, even though the Mister wouldn't believe that - I did come across some file folders on my computer of un-shared hauls. So I thought that I would share some of the products I purchased from Walmart during February and March today. I have purchased a couple of things there this month, but haven't taken pictures (they'll probably be shared on Instagram since it was literally one thing here, one there).
These are roughly in order from when I purchased them. The first 2 "group shots" are all items that I bought one at a time over different visits.
Hard Candy Fierce Effects High Intensity Shadow duo in Soft & Sultry
Hard Candy Celebrate Sequins (square silver holo glitter!!)
Trendsetters Eyeshadow Collection (10 shade MATTE palette) in Birthday Suit
Hard Candy Celebrate Sequins (shown again), Pure Ice Pure Icicles,
Salon Perfect Razzle Dazzle and Rough Around the Edges, SinfulColors Ice Blue
I think we're now into the March purchases. This group shot is showing one purchase. I was needing a new spoolie and I hadn't been happy with how my eyebrows had been looking, hence all the brow stuff. And I found the 2nd Wet 'n Wild contouring palette.
Wet 'n Wild A Clear Conscience Brow Shaper, Brow Pencil in Blond Moments, Contouring Kit in Dulce De Leche, Cover Girl Bombshell Pow-Der Brow Liner in Medium Brown
ELF Eyelash & Brow Brush
And now for my last multi-item purchase, which had a repurchase item, a couple items I knew I wanted to get (especially since this was before traveling), and then one impulse purchase.
Pond's Clarant B3 Dark Spot Correcting Cream (1.75 oz - travel section) - this was the impulse
ELF High Definition Undereye Setting Powder (repurchase), Cover Girl Clump Crusher Water Resistant Mascara in Very Black and Yes to Coconut Cooling Lip Oil
Huh...here I thought I hadn't bought that much during February and March but when you lay it all out, there's quite a bit of products pictured above. I've used quite a lot of the items already, but there are a few that I haven't gotten into yet. I can tell you that I've put quite a dent in the ELF undereye powder (of course) and the Wet 'n Wild brow pencil; I've also used the shadow palette, mascara and Caramel Toffee contouring palette a fair amount. In fact, some of the shades from the Birthday Suit palette are on my eyes today, as is the Clump Crusher mascara and Wet 'n Wild brow pencil.
Even though there's quite a bit pictured, I'm happy that I can say that all of the items were $10 or less - some were way less. I do feel like I purchased a couple other Hard Candy products earlier this year but for some reason, I never took a picture of them to share. I had picked up the Hard Candy So Baked Sculpting Trio in 3X A Charm and a Plumping Serum Lipstick in Infamous.
I'm hoping I stumble across the Hard Candy Anniversary products, but so far...nothing.
I wish that they'd put out a time frame for when to look for items. From a little digging I just did, it looks like sometime in May (according to a post from Swatch and Learn I found on Instagram here) - I hope that applies to the U.S. as well since she's based in Canada.
Have you picked up anything fun from Hard Candy lately? What's your favorite brow product(s)? If there's anything you'd like swatches of, or a review of, please let me know!
