MY Thoughts: Tarte Cheek Stain and Benefit Stains

I like both Tarte and Benefit Cheek Stains, but when it comes to ease of use and removal, I have to go with Tarte.

Have you tried them? Which do you think is the better product?

Nichole by OPI Nothing Kim-Pares to Blue Swatch

Nicole by OPI has launched the Kardashian Kollection. I could not resist picking up the color Nothing Kim-Pares to Blue.

It is a beautiful powder blue polish with shimmer. You will need at least 2 coats of polish, but 3 coats is better. It looks really pretty on the nails and is the perfect color for spring and summer:) Have you tried any of the Kardashian Kollectin colors? Let me know:)

Butter London Hen Party Nail Polish Swatch

One of my favorite nudes for summer is Butter London’s Hen Party. This was released with their Spring/Summer 2012 collection. It is a sheer, pearly, campaign nude with a yellow undertone. It also has an iridescent blue tint when held at certain angles.

I loved it in the bottle, but didn’t like it much when I first put it on my nails. The yellow undertone made my nails look dirty and stained. I found a way to make it work though, If you put Butter London’s Nail Foundation under it it looks gorgeous. It takes the “dirty/stained” look right out of it and leaves you will a beautiful nude polish that flashes a faint hint of blue in certain light. I’m in love.

Have you tried Hen Party? What do you think about it?

Hard Candy Cosmetics: My Collection and Thoughts on the Brand

Hard Candy Cosmetics used to be a high end brand. Now is found only at Walmart. Some people say that the product is not as good as its once was since it was reformulate to be a lower end brand. This is probably true, but there are still some really awesome products that I think you might want to take a look at.

I like their baked eyeshadow duos. They are bendable with good pigmentation. The duo colors complement each other nicely. I’m a big fan.

As for their bronzers, have only tried two, Tiki and Tropics. They are both shimmery. In my opinion they both perform better as highlighters, but you could use them for an all over glow. Tropics has gold shimmer and Tiki is more of a campaign highlight. They are both finely milled. Great for drugstore highlighters (even though they are marketed as bronzers:)

The baked blushes are really pretty. They are not matte, they have more of a satin finish. A couple of them are shimmery.

Their glosses are really good. I like a little sparkle in my life and they don’t disappoint! They also have glosses without sparkle too, for those of you who like their gloss a little tame. Don’t get the coffee one mentioned in the video though, it smells like Compound W. Gross!

I’m also not a fan of the 10000 Lashes mascara that I tried. It was very dry and did not want to transfer onto my lashes:( Perhaps it was a bad tube, but we will never know because I’m not buying another one to find out.

Have you tried any Hard Candy products? What did you think?
