New Hard Candy Products

Hey Blogettes!
This past weekend I traveled to Walmart and found that Hard Candy had some realyl nice looking new products out. The first thing that really cuaght my eye was Fox In A Box. They remind me alot of Benefits boxed blushes. None of the colors off hand looked like they could be a Benefit dupe, but I am really curious to try them out. The box's vary from being duos to quads of blush and bronzers. Currently thier are 5 Fox In A Box combinations.
The next new products I found were Sheer Envy Primers. These primers are the things I am most excited to try out. Hard Candy was 3 differant primers-A basic primer, a illuminating primer, and a skin perfecting primer. Anthor face products they Hard Candy added is Undercover Agent. Undercover Agent,which I love the name of, is described as aundereye brightner and concealer duo. I have read a couple of reviews on this sa far and it seems to have gotten mixed rates. But like most products it it really up to that person. The last new products featured at my Walmart were Sequin Saturated Shine Lip Gloss. These look gorgous! They feature 8 differant color lipglosses in the Sequin Saturated Shine line. The color Lush is my favorite from thier line.

After my project pan I plan on picking up a couple of these products to try and and I will deffiently do reviews and comparisons on them. After visting I found they have a couple other new products released. Hard Candy is deffiently a brand to check out it is avaviable by you.

Makeup Storage Ideas

Hello Blogettes!
I apologize for not posting at all last week. I was having a very lazy week. Since it is Spring and Spring cleaning is going on. I thought i would share some of the ways to store my makeup. Alot of these ways are acquired by using recycled products.

Crafts boxes-Purchased from Micheal's craft store, they have various shapes, sizes and patterns. Suited to hold anything from eyeshadow palettes, daily makeup, or even tools.

Toothbrush holders-Any type of toothbrush holder can be used to store liner pencils, brushes and lip glosses.

Screw lid Jars-Old Lotion jars, even when cleaned out, leave behind the scent of the product. They are great to storing cotton balls and wipes. Plus the scent left behind makes them smell lovely.

Tea tin or wooden boxes-This is a cute and classic way to old everyday products, brush cleaner or sanitizers.

Styrofoam foam from fruits and veggies-Currently I use these to old cosmetics sponges, brushes, and wedges. However in the past I have used it for lipsticks. The curved edges make the products stay in well and it makes it easier to stack products on top of one anther.
Baskets-Their are more uses for baskets then anything. I store my face masks, Lip balms, makeup bags and unopened products in these. (not shown-Orange crates-they work fabulous for nail polish storage.)

Questing for the Besting.

Happy Wednesday Blogettes!

I really don't have much of a post today but I was wondering if any of you knew a good Peach Lipstick. The problem is I got a sample of a ultra fabulous matte peach lipstick from Avon a quite a few years back, since then Avon as discontinued it. I think I may do some questing to find the best dupe for it. The point of this post really is asking is any of you know a good Peach Lipstick? Matte of not I am just in search of one. Thanks!

Candle Collection.

Hey Blogettes!
With Winter winding down I had to dig out some of my Spring candles to replace my winter ones. During this I actually came to the conclusion that I don't have many candles for Spring and Summer. I defiantly need to pick a good "Sweet Pea" scented one.

Yankee Candle.

Misc. Brands.

Yes, I have a good amount of Winter and Holiday seasoned candles. Its kinda a sad collection but every time I actually burn a candle in my room my fire detector goes off, which is is annoying considering that my window is always slightly open. Currently I am burning Country Dream Gardenia and Lemon Souffle. Any suggestions for good candle brands or scents?

Fashion Inspiration:Pixie Lott

Hello Blogettes,
Tonight I am back with some more Fashion Love. Pixie Lott is a Singer from England and I swear this girl never has a bad fashion day. Her style is simply flawless and something I defiantly wished I posed. Its crazy to think that this girl who is nearly the same age as I am can have such great fashion sense. Even her "dress-down" days seem to be stunning. Pixie is also such a great singer. Out of the photo choosen I really love the third one the most becuase its simple yet so chic. What are you thoughts on Pixie Lott's fashion sense?

2011 Spring Polish Picks!

Hello Blogettes,
I am here to share my Spring Nail Polish Picks. Most are Drugstore so they should be easy to find. I think the biggest difference ,for me at least, between Spring and Summer Polish is that Summer tends to be more neutrals to neon, while Spring is soft with pastels. I choose a mix of brights and pastels. They are all very colorful and remind me of assorted fruit.

[LtoR] Sally Hanson-Grass Slipper;Orly-Lemon aide;Wet N Wild-Sunny Side Up

[LtoR]Sinful Colors-Thimble berry;Bon Bons-Pastel Purple

All of these colors are actually some of my most worn ones. Pastel colors are my favorite and with Spring you can do so many cute floral designs with them. What are your Favorite Spring Polishes?

Project Pan Challenge!

Hey Blogettes,
Its time for Project Pan! I attempted to do one of these around the same time last year but I failed miserably. This time I plan on really sticking to it because in early June we are getting a Ulta right down the street from me. This is big considering that the closet Sephora or
Ulta is about 2 hours away. I have a M.A.C. 2 counters at my mall but I am not a big M.A.C. junkie due to some of the quality and because it is overly hyped. Ill probably post my Ulta/Sephora Wishlist post soon. Today is my official starting date-March 1st.

Collection of some of the items:


Mini sets and bath bombs.

Lip palettes and gloss.

This is currently some of the products I plan on using up. I actually have more I might add. My overall goal is to use up 15 products and more by June 1st. I am doing a few swaps currently but I don't know if I should include them into this or not. I guess its kinda cheating, but I guess you have you cheat a little at everything. If any of you wanna join me I would love that!
