Review: Hard Candy Glossaholic in Gorgeous

30 May

Hello everyone! A review today I picked this up a while ago and have been using it for some time then realized I didn’t review it yet so here it is.

Review: Let me start off by saying that this gloss is bigger than the ones on the market. It contains 0.38 fl oz. while regular is around 0.17 fl oz. That’s double the size and it’s at a really great price too! If you can see in the swatch there are chunky glitters in the gloss itself that depending on the light can be a green or red flecks. It is a pretty standard pink color with the glitters that add some extra oomph to the gloss. Wear time is the same for any gloss around 2-3 hours with/without eating and drinking. I like that it’s not extremely sticky but still stays on the lips for quite some time. There is a vanilla cake batter scent but that goes away after some time. This gloss looks great on it’s own or on top of a lipstick. For the cons since this gloss is bigger than other glosses on the market the applicator can sometimes get stuck in the small hole but can be easily fixed by applying force. Overall a great gloss for a good price.

Cost: $4.79CDN @ Walmart

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product  for those who love glitter in their glosses or for those looking for a basic color with some pop but I won’t be purchasing anymore as chunks of glitter isn’t my cup of tea.

Nothing like it

Hello everyone! A special post today as I usually don’t post on Sundays but today my brother and I mowed the lawn and there is nothing like a freshly mowed lawn. Take a look for yourselves.

It took quite sometime to mow both the front and back yard and took a total 5 garbage bags. At leatst we didn’t have to mow Central Park.

#2

27 May

Hello everyone! So I have finished the #2 item on my 20 things before 20 list which was to read Watchmen.

It was such an intense book I had to split up my time to read it. A very heavy read with lots of different commentaries on human conditions and such. I would totally recommend this book for those who are beginning to understand the world around them bit by bit. This book is going to be a nice addition to my bookshelf.
