Hard Candy has been providing us with fun nail polish, eye shadow, and lip gloss since the early 90s. You might recognize the super adorable packaging and bright colours. Definitely the go-to- makeup for beauty junkies craving cool, edgy and super cute cosmetics.
I must admit, that not too long ago the only primer I knew of was the one you put on your walls before adding coats of paint on top (thanks to dad being a painter and all). If you’re anything like me, you hate it when you spend countless minutes of your already crazy mornings just to glam up and apply some makeup, only for it to be smeared off by the time you get to the office. By lunch time your made up face is melted away like the cheese on your sub. Tired of this? I sure am, so here’s how I fixed that problem.
I tried the Hard Candy Sheer Envy primer and I really don’t think I’ll ever go back to applying makeup without a primer. Here’s why:
Not only did it even out my skin, so my foundation applied thoroughly and precisely, it softened my skin too! My foundation went on so smooth. On top of that, the primer isn’t oily or sticky and doesn’t look (or feel) like you’re wearing pounds of makeup because of it’s super light base. Another bonus? It’s paraben free!
Goodbye to the reapply
No exaggeration intended, but when I apply the primer under my regular makeup, it lasts double the time it used to without the primer. I mean it. Before using primer, I was lucky if my makeup would last the commute to the office. Now, not only does my makeup last the commute, but it lasts my entire 8 hour shift, plus the commute back home! It’s a great feeling knowing that I don’t have to reapply my makeup throughout the day. Drinks after work? Sure, me and my makeup are ready to go.
You’d think because of all the great things this primer can do, you’d be spending top dollar on it. Instead, what makes this primer a must have besides the fact that it works, is that it is super affordable “ bonus for us ladies who can’t splurge hundreds of dollars on our beauty regime. You can pick this primer up at Wal Mart stores across Canada for only $7.95. That’s not a deal, that’s a steal! Seriously, under $8, what are you waiting for at this point?
