Hard Candy – Advent Calendar Day 2 (Blogmas Day 15)

Welcome to Day 2 of the Hard Candy Advent Calendar Adventure!!

As you may know, I picked up a couple of these great Advent Calendars the other day! I’m going to do a first impressions on each, plus update you with my thoughts as I try everything out.

I’m going to review what is behind the doors in descending order. If you are going the other way, or haven’t done yours yet, why not read something else for now,

like this How To – The Perfect Red Lip (Blogmas Day 11).

Here’s what day 2 had to offer:



Door 11 had Pee Wee Purple 638,  a similar version of yesterday’s pink shimmer polish. In the bottle, it seems more  holographic with different purple shimmers, and no gold in it. I swatched this one too, and it was really not good. I need to try these over a solid polish or do multiple coats when I’m ready to rock these kinds of shades to see how they do. They also have a really strong, bad smell to them! I’ve never smelled anything like these polishes before…


Door 11 had a tube of Lash Tinsel – a glittery black mascara in the shade Spellbound 090. I tried this on bare lashes and aside from combing my lashes nicely, this did absolutely nothing. So I applied a full 2 coats of my regular mascara and tried this on top. Still, nothing. Upon inspection, pulling the wand from the tube…the wand is basically dry. I had to press hard with my fingers to get anything off it, and what I did get off was just little black flecks, no shimmer. Not sure what went wrong here, maybe my tube was old?

Stay tuned for more…

So what do you guys think so far? Have you tried either of these products before and if so, how did you like them? Let me know in the comments down below, I love hearing from you!
