Hey everyone!! As you all know, the summer months are finally here!! I’ve been carousing the makeup isles in hopes of inspiration. I was at Walmart last night and stopped in front of these little beauts! It’s the Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Hula Hula 131, and the Revlon Illuminance Creme Eyeshadow in Skinlights 730. Hard Candy I’ve been a fan of for a while as well as Revlon, but the creme quad was a bit of a surprise for me!
This is the Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Hula Hula, all their bronzers are an enormous size, and of course LOVE the face that they do not test on animals. I was really attracted to this because it is a mid-tone bronze and not too dark!
Here’s the back of the compact, gives a nice little description, the color, and a disclaimer!
There is A LOT of product in this thing, and I am so glad. I paid around $9 for this and it has .44 oz of product, almost HALF an oz!!! Considering Mac Mineralize Skinfinishes only have about .35oz and are close to $20, this is an amazing deal. The color is an amazing smooth, lightly warm natural bronzy color, with hints of golden swirls. I’d say this is perfect for anyone with light-med skin tones looking for a natural tan look. It also has the slightest amount of illuminating particles to also give a nice glow! Totally recommend!!
Ok, this was the surprise find. I always walked past these little quads because I’ve been so on the fence about creme eyeshadow products. I love how they feel, but the staying power or finish never really sold me on them. These were about $5 each, and I decided to give it a try after seeing these summery neutral shades!
This is the quad in Skinlights, but there were many other shades ranges and colors to choose from!
I really like the packaging on these, very sleek and minimalistic, pretty good for $5! These will easily slip into my makeup bag without taking up too much room! It also has a mirror the entire length of the palette, so that is a great bonus!!
Here is the palette (excuse my reflection!! lol) gorgeous wearable, summery shades!! The texture on these are really great, super light, creamy, and blendable. You can wear them sheer or build up the color. I’ve also discovered that they work INCREDIBLE as a base for power eyeshadows and makes them more vibrant and lasting!! I really like all the colors in this palette, very appropriate for everyday summer looks!!
Here are the left two shades, it is a shimmery brown/bronze color and a shimmery cream color! These are perfect to wear on their own for those lazy summer days by the pool!! No hassle, but gives such an amazing glow on the eyes!! Love the light shades of a quick shimmery all over the lid look!
Here are the other two shades, an AMAZING coral-pink color with gold shimmer, and a more matte peach shade. The coral shade looks amazing on the eyes, as well as on the cheek bones as a highlight! The peach shade is a great neutralizer or blending color and have also tried it under the eyes as a concealer! Really like how cream products have multiple uses, great value for this little jewel!

Here is a little morsel I pulled out of my nail polish drawer this morning, it’s the Essie Nail Polish in Peach Daiquiri. I absolutely LOVE this color and decided to paint my nails for the pool!! Essie polishes are great quality and go on so nicely on the nails, they run for around $7, totally worth it!
Here’s the little label on the top of the bottle! So cute!!
Here are my finished nails, I’m trying to grow my natural nails out so this is great motivation, fun colors!!
Also, the bronzer and cream products on my cheeks!!
What do you guys think!?
