  • THOUGHTS/REVIEW: Whoa, I haven’t tried anything from Hard Candy for quite some time now! This baked eyeshadow is amazing. It works just as great as other higher-end brands with baked eyeshadows. I also love that I can use baked products wet or dry depending on the intensity I want!

  • THOUGHTS/REVIEW: This is another line I haven’t bought in a long time too! I remember loving these Sally Hansen Salon Effects because they were so convenient and easy to use. I’m really excited to try this and rekindle my fascination for this product again!

  • THOUGHTS/REVIEW: I love the packaging of this eyeliner, it’s so fancy! I don’t recall ever hearing anything from this brand before and I’m really excited to give it a shot. The wand is very unique and nothing like I’ve ever seen and I apologize for not having a photo of it to feature.

Hard Candy Take Me Out Liner in Sushi (Full Size)

Hard Candy Take Me Out Liner in Sushi Retail $5.00 USD for 0.036oz

  • ”A creamy liner with powerful pigment is a girl’s best friend, and this fun little chopstick-inspired pencil has our hearts. Accent your eyes with this sassy shade or smudge it out for a perfectly purple smokey eye.” #HardCandy
  • THOUGHTS/REVIEW: Whoa, the packaging on this baby is very unique for an eyeliner. They were not kidding when they said “chopstick-inspired” because it really looks like it. I’m not a huge fan of eyeliner pencils that need sharpening but the formula is ultra-creamy! LOVE IT. Oh and if you’re curious, this swatch looks almost identical to the Urban Decay Fishnet Eyeshadow!! Cool huh?

 

My overall rating of this month’s Beauty Box 5 is a 5 out of 5 stars! This box exceeds the monthly price of $12 USD (it’s well worth over $21). This box by far is the BEST Beauty Box 5 I’ve received! I cannot wait to see the future Beauty Box 5 boxes for this year. They are off to an amazing start! ♥ Did you get a box this month? If so, what did you get? — Get your Beauty Box 5 here and see what subscription options you can choose from!
