Hardy Candy World Balmination

I’m currently obsessing over Hard Candy World Balmination Glossy Lip Balm. I’ve been using it for the past week and am addicted! I have the color Starfish, which is a sheer coral color. This balm is jammed pack with moisture, which is the #1 reason I’m obsessed. I don’t feel like I need to apply my petroleum lip balm for moisture when I’m wearing this balm.

The container is fun too. The tube casing is Ed Hardy-esque, and when removed, the balm is encased in a black tube with silver swirls. You have to be careful when taking the top off though, since the balm doesn’t retract all the way down into the tube, and comes sticking up a half inch.

You can find Hard Candy products at Walmart stores and This balm is only $3! I know it's kinda early, but it screams stocking stuffer!!!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day - Add GREEN to Your Day!

Whether you're going out to celebrate, or just going to work today, you have to incorporate GREEN in your day for St. Patrick's Day (or you'll get pinched by an leprechaun)!

Hard Candy has a little bit of green in every part of their line! Eyeliners, shadows, mascaras and nail polishes. Best part, it's affordable. You can find the entire Hard Candy line at

I got the chance to try a few of Hard Candy's green items:

The Lash Weave Lush Green mascara is awesome. It's not as bold as a black or blue mascara, but you will definitely see a tint of green in your lashes.

The Meteor-Eyes Baked Shadow in Space Cadet is a deep green when it's on your eyes. The sparkles that are in the pot don't really come across once on your skin. I found that adding a few drops of water to my brush before dipping it in the pot and applying helped to make the color more bold.

The Take Me Out Chopstick liner in Money is awesome. Full of glitter even with application. I think it looks best with black first, and then over dried black eyeliner to really make eyes pop.

Walk the Line Liquid Liner in Lucky is SUPER green. I mean, GREEN. It goes on really smooth and really bold. If you want to go really green, you could probably use this liner alone. Your eyes will be spotted across the room. But be warned, it's really hard to remove, so you may have green eyes for a few days :)CLEAN GREEN
Bath and Body Works has come through again with cute, fun antibacterials. Check out the Feeling Lucky green ones!

Check out these Irish recipes at Yum Sugar. Guinness Ice Cream anyone?

End your night and detox in a bath with a LUSH Avobath Bath Bomb ($6.25). It's chock full of our favorite green vegetable avocado, skin is left moisturized and nourished. Lemongrass and bergamot stimulate the senses to get you going!

Please comment below and let me know how you're adding GREEN to your day :)

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.

Hard Candy line at Walmart

I use to save up babysitting money when I was younger to buy Hard Candy nail polish at Marshall Fields (now Macys). I was too young at the time to appreciate the quality of the nail polish, and was more impressed that each bottle came with a funky, colorful ring.

Now, you can buy this same product, same package and funky, colorful ring, at Walmart. I was lucky enough to try out the Kaleyedascope Eyeshadow in Make Believe, Blush Crush in Honeymoon, Plumping Serum in Girl Next Door and the Just Nails nail polish, pictured, in Mr. Wrong. The line also carries body shimmer, mascara, eye liners, lipstick and more.

The shadows are great. I've only tried them out dry, but apparently they create a more dramatic look when applied wet. The shadow duos come in fun color combinations and retails for $6 at
I LOVE the blush. It gave a super natural flushed look. It has a swirl of shimmery highlighter in it so I looked dewy, but not too overdone. It reminds me a lot of NARS Orgasm blush, but with softer highlights in it. It retails for $7 at

The Plumping Serum lipgloss is awesome. No stinging involved in this plumping, just the illusion of fuller lips. The gloss I received is sheer, so I'd like to give this a try in a color that will stand out more. Has a slight minty feel to it, and looks really good over a lipstick. Retails at $6 at

The nail polish, of course, is classic. All colors are super unique. With a base coat, two color coats and a top coat, this lasted about 4-5 days (while washing dishes w/o gloves) and was easy to touch up in between. The nail polish retails for $5. Don't forget to wear the matching ring :)

Overall I'm super impressed with this line. If you're looking to add a new product to your makeup collection, something new, something funky, start here. I hope more makeup brands follow Hard Candy's steps...a quality line moving to an affordable outlet.
