Hard Candy Wet Ever Lip Lacquer Review & Swatches | Selfish and Famous

I'm a lip product junkie! I'll admit it! I am always on the look out for new lippies and I recently stumbled across these Hard Candy Wet Ever Lip Lacquers and wanted to give them a try. I am more of a matte lip kinda girl but wanted to see if I enjoyed these glossy finishes. 

 

The Product

Packaging: The lacquers come in a tin box with a mirror inside. Perfect to save and use for other things like bobby pin storage or any other small things you have lying around. The lacquers themselves are in a see through container with a 'dripping' effect on the package. You'll find the shade name on the back of either the tin or the lacquer itself. You get 0.22 oz or 6.3 g per gloss. 

Color: I chose to shades: Selfish and famous. Selfish is a neutral pinky shade perfect for everyday wear. And famous is more of a berry shade. They offer 7 different shades in total.

Scent: They really don't have much of a scent. I honestly thought they would have a sweet candy scent to them haha!

Application: I really like the applicator! It comes with a pointy tip perfect to line your lips first then fill them in. The applicator picks up the right amount of product. You will only need one coat because these glosses are super opaque! Once on the lips they become a bit tacky but not heavy.

Wear: Like I mentioned above they become tacky which help with the longevity of the lacquers. They will last a few hours! I apply it in the morning and by lunch time it's still on! I will say though to be a bit careful not to apply too much because it can bleed around the lips!

Price: I paid $5.47 each at Walmart

Glossier's Wowder And Cloud Paint Review

I have seen Glossier pop up just about everywhere and decided to give the brand a try. When I went to their page I was drawn to their newer makeup product which is their 'Wowder' finishing powder and their blushes which they call 'cloud paint'. I like how the brand was very sleek and fresh looking along with some really decent pricing.

Wowder

Packaging: The 'Wowder' comes in a small jar with 0.25 oz of product. I love the baby pink and the bold 'Wowder' print on the top. Once opened the jar has meshing in the middle where the product comes out and the lid has a what I call a 'stopper' that closes directly onto the mesh part preventing any product fall out and/or mess! 

Color: I chose light/medium thinking it would deposit some color but, honestly it didn't deposit any color making it more of a translucent powder for me. I can't complain though!

Application: I purchased the 'Wowder Duo' that comes with a brush and once I applied it to the skin I did notice a difference. My fine lines were blurred! My pores looked the same but I was really glad that it did not emphasize any imperfections. The powder is very fine and felt very smooth. 

Wear: My skin looked flawless all day long! Also, my makeup stayed put all day! This stuff is AMAZING!! 

The Brush: You can choose the buy the wowder with or without the brush and I, of course, chose to purchase it with the brush since it recommends using it. The brush seems to be soft but, I really don't think its all that necessary. I noticed that even when I applied with a regular powder brush I got the same effects.

Price: Like I said I got the 'Wowder Duo' which included the powder and a brush which was $35 for both. Side note: The Wowder itself is $22 and the brush is $20.

Cloud Paint

Packaging: I was really drawn to this packaging. It looked so sleek but yet so cute and so cool at the same time! I love how the end piece has the color of the blush and the shade name. You get 0.33 oz of product in each tube. 

Color: I chose the shade 'puff' which is more of a baby pink because I wanted that 'natural' blush look.

Application: I love how creamy this product is and how much color pay off you get. It is also so easy to blend and looks really natural on the skin. The product itself is not greasy at all like some other cream blushes I have owned in the past. You can really sheer the product out or build it up as much as you'd like!

Wear: This is the first time a blush has every really lasted all day. It looked flawless from the second I put it on to the second I took it off! I am obsessed with these that I'm going back for the rest of the shades haha! 

Price: The blushes are $18 each! Which may seem like much but you seriously need a pea sized amount when applying. 

Have you tried anything from Glossier yet? What do you recommend?

How To Get Rid Of Dry Lips

If you suffer from dry lips then you know how much of a struggle it is to get them moisturized and plump on a daily basis! So, today I am going to share some of my favorite tips on how to take care of your lips and possibly prevent chapped lips in the future! Don't forget to share some of your favorite tips with me in the comments :)

 

Sugar lip scrub

Literally, walk into your kitchen right now and grab some sugar, rub on your lips, and watch the dead skin flake off, then apply some coconut oil or a really thick lip balm treatment like bite beauty's agave lip mask. 

 

Brush it off

Grab an old toothbrush and massage your lips going in circular motion. This will remove all of the dry skin off your lips and plump them up by bringing blood to the surface.

 

Use a lip mask

Try to use a lip mask every night before going to bed. You can apply something like bite beauty's agave lip mask or some coconut oil, leave it overnight, wake up with soft lips! Or you can use something fun like The Face Shop Lip Gel Patch.

Use lip products with moisturizing factors

If you wear lipsticks on the daily then try using some with moisturizing factors like Revlon's Ultra HD Gel Lip Color Or use tinted lip balms like Dior's Color Reviver Balm. Try to avoid any old lip products as well. 

 

Avoid super hot showers

For some reason when I shower with hot water my lips tend to dry up. So, if thats the case with you then try to avoid super hot showers as possible! 

 

Stay Hydrated

We all should know this by now! Water is your body and skin's best friend so, drink it up yo! Drinking water will keep your body hydrated therefore keeping your lips plump!

 

Humidifier

Use a humidifier in your bedroom (or any room you spend a lot of time in) to keep the air moist and prevent dry lips and skin.
