sandybeachesandgeorgiapeaches asked: What is a good under-eye concealer that doesn't cause creases? I use glamoflauge by Hard Candy, but I get really bad creases under my eyes. Any help?

Hello!  Hard Candy Glamoflauge has been one of my go-to concealers for a really long time because of it’s low price tag and impeccable coverage, but I do see a lot of complaints.  People (myself included) have seen creasing with this under the eyes, and also I’ve had people say that it’s caused breakouts.  Fortunately I have found a similar product that is a bit nicer to work with!

image

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer - $6 (Found at Walmart)

image

Physician’s Formula Conceal Rx - $9

The Physician’s Formula Conceal Rx concealer is really great.  I already love Physician’s Formula complexion products because they are much better for sensitive skin types than most other drugstore products (if it’s good for sensitive skin, it’s great for all skin types!).  This concealer is not as thick as Hard Candy Glamoflauge, and has just SLIGHTLY less coverage, but that only makes it easier to blend, set, and work with.  I have never had this concealer break me out (although just because it didn’t break out my skin, doesn’t mean it won’t break out yours, and vice versa!) Because it is a thinner consistency, it sets much better with powder and doesn’t cake up in fine lines under the eyes, around the nose, etc.

So for under the eyes and for people with quite sensitive or acne prone skin, I would probably recommend the Physician’s Formula concealer over the Hard Candy one, if you don’t mind spending an extra $3.  But for theater, special events, or covering tattoos, you might want to stick with the Hard Candy, because the coverage of that concealer is second to none!

megaultratimewaster asked: I got as Full Cover Concealer by Makeup Forever as a present and love the amount of coverage it gives me. I can't afford the keep buying it though and was wondering if you have a cheaper product that does the same thing?

image

Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer - $32

MUFE’s concealer is awesome.. super full coverage with a matte finish, and it comes in lots of different shades.  However the price is really high!  A really good alternative is:

image

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer - $6

This can be found at Walmart.  It is also insanely full coverage, oil-free, and “waterproof”.  There aren’t quite as many shades to choose from, but the price makes up for the possibility of a not-so-perfect match!

If you’re not necessarily a fan of the matte finish of MUFE’s, then this is a good similar product, but with a creamy, natural finish:

image

Physician’s Formula Conceal Rx - $8

This has just a little less coverage, but I attribute that to the more hydrating formula.  :)

shattereddreamssss asked: Do you know of any good dupes for Benefit's Boing Concealer (shade number 3)? Or any good concealers for oily skin?

image

Benefit Boi-ing Concealer - $20

This is a highly coveted concealer that (for me) isn’t quite worth the money.  There are a few dupes out there for this particular concealer, like:

image

NYX Concealer Jar - $5

These have the same consistency, formula, and coverage - but NYX’s has more colors to choose from.

Other good concealers for oily skin:

image

Hard Candy Glamoflauge - $6

Super full coverage, long lasting, matte finish (my HG)

image

Revlon Photoready Concealer - $8

Very full coverage, long lasting, but very creamy

image

Maybelline Superstay Concealer - $6

Medium coverage, matte finish, liquidy texture

Hope this helps you! :)

swizzleb asked: I just started following, but I love your page already! Sorry if it has been asked before, but do you know of a lip plumping product that doesn't make your lips feel all sticky? I have the hardest time finding one! Thanks!! :)

Aw, thank you so much!  That makes me really happy :)

In general, “lip plumpers” don’t actually plump up your lips, they just create that illusion.  They are either very shiny glosses, which visually create poutier looking lips, or they contain different ingredients like spices or mints that sting the skin of your lips, making you feel as though your lips are swelling.  Of course they could also be a mixture of the two of these. Generally, lip plumping glosses are very thick and sticky on purpose to create a more 3-D effect on the lips, making them look larger.  However any gloss will significantly make your lips appear poutier and more plump!  My favorite glosses that aren’t sticky and still have a lot of color and thickness to them are Revlon Colorburst glosses!

image

Another really good idea that has been gaining a lot of popularity, are lip plumpers that come in a stick/pencil/crayon type of form.  They are sheer and don’t feel like a sticky gloss, but still have that tingle and shine that people associate with lip plumpers!

Hard Candy All Glossed Up Lip Stains - $6 at Walmart

emily22hannah asked: What, in your opinion, is THE BEST drugstore concealer?

In my opinion, as in for my personal use, I like Hard Candy Glamoflauge the BEST… although you can only find it at Walmart stores or online.

image

It provides super-duper-full coverage, and hides everything I need it to - from redness, to blemishes, to dark undereye circles.  You get a lot of product in the tube, especially considering you only need a tiny little dot of product to cover anything, and it blends out easily with a brush or your finger.  Use too much and it can get a bit cakey, but like I said - a little drop will do, so don’t go squeezing out half the tube.  You need less of this concealer than any other concealer I’ve tried, which in my book, means value.

The texture is very thick and creamy, and not very liquidy at all, which could be strange for some people.  It lasts all day and I have no problem using it alone with just a bit of tinted moisturizer, or with a full on face of foundation.

Unfortunately there are only three shades - Light, Medium, and Dark, but unlike some brands “Light” is actually very light and “Dark” is quite dark… they aren’t all just a variation of beige.

You also not only get the tube of liquid concealer, but a small pencil concealer as well.  I love using this to outline and perfect my brows and lips, and it works really well as a crease-proofing base for the liquid.

Also, it only costs $6 - very affordable in my book!  Once again, you can find it at Walmart stores, on Walmart.com, or HardCandy.com  :)

kayyyyydf asked: Hi just found this blog, and absolutely love all your advice/opinions i am a huge fan of bronzers, and shimmers, what would you say has the best color/glow to it? what is your favorite bronzer? also do you have any favorite gradual tanning lotions or self tanners?

Hello, thank you!

If you like a shimmery bronzer, then baked bronzers are definitely the way to go.  They have a gorgeous sheen that is finely milled and not chunky or glittery - they look natural, but still glow.  

image

Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Heatwave - $8

image

Milani TanTastic Baked Bronzer in Sun Glow - $8

image

Lorac Tantalizer Baked Bronzer - $32

I also really like these shimmery, but not “baked” options:

image

The Balm Betty Lou-Manizer - $24

image

Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips Bronzer - $8

I have a bronzer addiction too, and I don’t think I could pick just one bronzer as my favorite!!

As for a gradual self tanner, I think that my favorite easily-accessed one is Jergen’s Natural Glow.  It gives the best color without streaking terribly, and it also provides moisture.  I just hate the smell of it.. mostly because it’s a memory triggering scent for me haha.  

I also love Banana Boat Summer Color - I can’t find it year round, but that might just be because I live in NY and the demand isn’t there in the winter.

But my favorite tanning lotion that I’ve used is Color Couture!  I was sent their products a few months ago and I fell in love.  St. Tropez is also very good, if a little bit pricey!  :)

yourlovelessvalentine asked: Hi again :) I forgot to ask earlier - what are some good drugstore eye concealers you recommend?

Hello :)

My current favorites for dark circles, etc:

image

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser - $6

This has a really great formula that feels so light on your skin, but actually gives nice coverage.  It blends well into the skin and feels soft and natural.  

image

Maybelline FitME Concealer - $6

This provides really good coverage and blends flawlessly into the skin.  It also feels very light on your skin without looking greasy or cakey.

image

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer - $6

This is a very full coverage concealer that covers even the most severe dark circles (or blemishes, or redness, etc).  You only need the tiniest amount!

jlw510-deactivated20130408 asked: What are (in your opinion) some of the best powders to set foundation?

I have lots of favorites, haha.  Usually I look for a matte finishing powder, because my skin gets a bit oily througout the day.  Here are some:

Hard Candy Welcome Matte Translucent Pressed Powder - $7

Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Pressed Powder - $5

L’Oreal True Match Pressed Powder - $7  (Don’t use translucent powder on special occasions, because they will make your face look ghostly in photos)

Airspun Loose Powder - $6

bubbyblog asked: How do you apply the Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer because everytime i use it creases really bad

Because Glamoflauge is a very full coverage concealer, if you apply it under your eyes, or in other certain areas, it may have the tendency to crease.  But if you apply it correctly, I’ve found that this almost never happens.

Glamoflauge comes in two pieces… the large tube of liquid concealer, and the small pencil concealer that most people tend to discard or forget about.  Warm the pencil up on the back of your hand, and then apply it somewhat messily to your skin.  Smooth it out with your finger and make sure it’s smooth.  You will apply your liquid concealer over this.

With the liquid concealer, you only need a tiny amount… and I mean TINY.  The concealer blends very easily, and because it’s so thick, you only need the smallest drop to cover a broad area.  I don’t blend this with my fingers, I use a small buffing brush, or a fluffy eyeshadow blending brush.  This will really blend the makeup into your skin, and this technique with the pencil will keep it from creasing.

Of course it is very important to, no matter what, set your concealer with powder.  Just a light layer of powder will do, and it will make a world of difference.

Hope this helps you!

omgstef asked: Hi! I'm trying to expand my makeup collection but I need help - if you had to choose 5 makeup products, which ones would you choose/brands? Also, is foundation essential? I need me some help, haha :(

Hello!  Expanding collections is what I do best ;)

1.  Concealer - Concealer is the perfect tool for hiding skin flaws without covering up completely.  It can brighten up under your eyes or simply disguise a pesky pimple, instantly boosting your confidence.  If I had to pick one:

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer - $6

2.  Mascara - This is the one thing I almost never leave my house without putting on, simply because it makes a major difference in the way you look with minimal effort!  Simply spiffing up your lashes a bit makes you look more awake and alert, and draws attention to your eyes without using a ton of makeup.  If I had to pick one:

L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Waterproof - $8

3.  Gel Eyeliner - There are many types of eyeliner, but gel is probably the most versatile.  It goes on smooth and sharp like a liquid, but can be smudged and applied like a pencil!  Eyeliner helps define your eyes and can be anything from barely-there to dramatic and edgy.  If I had to choose one:

Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner - $6

4.  Blush/Bronzer -  This might be cheating, but they can both be used for similar things.  Blush and bronzer give color to your face, giving you more character and giving your makeup a natural look.  You can often find duos, too, which give you great options!  If I had to choose one:

ELF Contouring Blush & Bronzer - $3

5.  Lipstick - Lipstick is my preferred method of lip color… it gives an instant punch of color, and it is rich and sophisticated.  There are so many shades and finishes, it’s impossible to get bored!  If I had to choose one:

Revlon SuperLustrous Lipstick - Matte Pink Pout - $7



No, foundation is not essential.  It’s purpose is to create an even base for the rest of your makeup; to even out your skin tone and hide skin flaws.  If you have nice skin and are confident without foundation, there is no reason to start using it.  :)
