|Hard Candy Moon Glow Illuminated Translucent Pressed Powder and Blush Crush|
When I found out that Hard Candy Cosmetics had some new products available, I was eager to investigate. I picked out a few that recently launced along with some old favorites in the line to share with you for this review!
The first thing I wanted to test was their new Glow Away-Bronzer & Highlighter Duo. This is a great stick with a bronzer shade at one end and highlighter at the other. I choose the lightest shade in Maui (a beige-bronze) of this line.

What I did was to swirl the cream bronzer stick around the sides of my face in a large number three shape. I started at the temples and worked down to my upper cheekbones all the way to the jawline. Then I applied and carefully blended the shimmering highlighter over it to accentuate my cheekbones followed by the Blush Crush–Baked Blush in Honeymoon (dusky pink with pale violet threads immersed in the color).
I dusted this Honeymoon shade on the apples of my cheeks next and was left with a glistening sweep of pure soft pink light. This paler shade really helped play up my cheekbones to the max when using this technique with bronzer. This technique with the lighter bronzer and pale shimmering blush really helps contour facial structure without looking artificial, especially for those with wide cheeks.
The That’s How Eye Roll Shadow Stick & Loose Shimmer was another perfect choice. This is a creamy pencil on one end with primer infused shadow for lasting wear and the other sports loose shimmer in a rollerball. I picked the Drama shade, which was a coppery shadow that can brighten eyes subtly while the shimmer in a peachy-beige further lit my lids up for quite a stunning natural effect.
On the other hand, I also picked out a Kal-eye-descope-Baked Eyeshadow Duos in (Rock n Roll). Think of a shimmery dark plum with some black thrown in for impact on one half with the other a pale violet. With dark brown eyes, this is a great choice to make them smolder with smoky eyes.

This is a highly pigmented baked formula that really uses color to its best advantage from using wet to make it bolder to dry to keep it softer. To me, the dry application stays put for hours and is all I need to create beautiful eyes with mystery.
The Moon Glow Illuminating Translucent Pressed Powder was wonderful for finishing my makeup. This product gave my face a luminous glow, which was especially fitting for summer.
Last of all, I just had to sample the World Balmination Glossy Tinted Lip Balm. I selected the Miss Independent shade, a juicy pinkish-grape that moistened my lips with a provocative sheer yummy raspberry shine.
I am now obsessed with a few more newly discovered Hard Candy Cosmetics and will be adding them to my shopping cart when I run out. I suggest checking these products out because they were all simply wonderful performers to me.
