I love Multipurpose products!

Hey guys!

So, I'm back, and I'm here to sing praise to another fabulous mark product - mark's Mist Oppurtunity - Multitasking Refresher.

Alrighty, so, this product retails $8.00 in the U.S.. I picked mine up directly from my site, since I'm a mark rep (I'll post the link to my store at the end of the post!). My order arrived pretty quick, within 7 days to be exact. I picked this up to use with my mineral makeup to spritz on after to keep my makeup from looking so powdery. Since then, I've found several uses for it. Here goes:
  1. Light Moisturizer - I use this most days before I apply any products to my face to prep it for makeup application.
  2. Mixing Medium - I use this on my brushes when I want to apply any products wet (eyeshadow, bronzer, etc.)
  3. Mineral Makeup Blender - I love spritzing this on my Everyday Mineral Long Handled Kabuki and swirling any of my mineral makeup on. It takes my skin from looking like I'm wearing makeup to soft, smooth skin. Just a few spritz between each time I dip the brush back for more powder.
  4. Skin Refresher - If I find my makeup to be looking dry later in the day, I simply use this all over. This is EXCELLENT when I touch up with powder to keep the shine at bay, but end up look powdery and too made up. I just spray this on a powder brush and dust it across my face.
So, there you have it! My uses for Mist Oppurtunity. Of course, another reason I bought this was I couldn't justify shelling out $18 for Fix+ (3.4oz), when mark's Mist Oppurtunity is only $8, and almost twice the size at 6.7oz.

I'm leaving it to everyone to be the judge. Give this product a try and I know you'll find just as many if not more uses that I did for it.

Here's the link to my mark store where you can pick this up as well: Josh's store :D <3

Hard Candy so far...

Hey guys :D

So, I've picked up a few things from the new Hard Candy, exclusively at Wal-Mart. Overall, the products are really affordable and the packing is too cute for words. But yeah, let me review a few of the things I've picked up so far:

Take Me Out Liners

Notice anything special about this liner? It's a chop stick! I know, adorable! Either way, these come in a variety of colors, I think 8? I'm not sure, but I picked these up in Chop Suey (The aqua blue you see) and Ahi (Lime Green). The thought of having these colorful liners excited me! However, I have to sadly say, I'm a little disappointed. They're a kohl pencil, so, the staying power isn't that great, although the color payoff is. So, it's kind of like you take one to get one I guess? For $5 though, I don't regret them and will continue to use them.

Blush Crush Baked Blush
I really loved this product. It's marbleized like a lot of newer blush and bronzers are, which really draws you in. Now, I've never owned any of the MAC Mineral Skinfinishes, however, I feel this gives me the same type of finish. I have mine in Pin Up, which is the one in the picture, it's more of an apricot-highlighter blush/bronzer. They make these in much more brown and pink shades however. You can use this wet or dry pending on the effect you want, but I love the finish! They are a little on the hard to build side, but it's perfect for what I want. I used this wet as an eyeshadow and I loved it too! $7 well spent :D

Foiled Again Metallic Shadow Stick
I'm a major sucker for anything silver, gold, copper, or bronze, so, when I saw these, I picked up two -- Ecstacy(pictured), a copper color, and glimmer, a bright silver. These make excellent eyeshadow bases, or, if you're in a rush, just a swipe of color. They can be a bit stiff on the eye, but I prefer applying them directly than with a brush. But for $6, I'll probably pick up a few more.

I did get a few more Hard Candy products, but I'll save that for part II tomorrow! Stay tuned!
