Hard Candy Holiday

The other day I was perusing the holiday aisles at Walmart checking to see what kind of gifts were on display.  As usual, there were various bath and body sets, lotions, perfume, cheap makeup and kid stocking stuffers.  However, this year, I did notice that Hard Candy cosmetics brand had a few sets of their own as well.

HARD CANDY Holiday Sets:

We all know Hard Candy has been a cosmetics brand at Walmart for over a year now.  Quality may not be like how it use to be, but for many of us, seeing the brand bring back memories.  It was pretty neat to see that Hard Candy had put out some holiday sets for us to try unlike the other makeup brands.  From what I saw, there were like 5 sets available at affordable prices.  Sets included eye shadows, gloss rings, lipsticks, nail polishes, and palettes.  Prices ranged from $1 for single nail polishes to about $10 for bigger palettes.  I did grab a few single nail polishes as they were great as stocking stuffers!  I haven't tried any of the eyeshadows or other items, so I have really no idea on the payoff of them, but for the price its always worth a try.  The nail polishes are cute and applied on pretty well, which I liked.

Available at most Walmart Holiday aisles.  I'm sure there still plenty, but Christmas is almost here, so get them before all those last minute shoppers takes them all.

Glowing for the Holidays?

We all know Summer is so over, fall is nearly gone, and Winter, well for many of is already upon us!  Saying goodbye to tan and bronzed skin, bright and glowy skin was a bit hard but we all made it right?

No need for pale and dull skin, liven it up with St. Tropez Wash Off Instant Glow Mousse.  
Apply the mousse over any part of your body for an instant soft golden glow then wash it off with 
water at the end of the day!

 I would definitely love to try this product!  I can get pretty pale and have dull skin during the cold winters, many times I need that bit of glow to pick me up!  I mean definitely I'm not looking for tan skin in the winter, but something that will give me a golden glow without looking so tanned out and dark.  I think this product would be good for me, as I can easily wash the product off at night and also cool that it won't transfer onto any clothing.  Definitely a great product to use for anyone who's heading out to those Holiday Parties this season!

Well, with all the Holiday deals going on! I got another one for you!

St. Tropez, (Tanning Heaven)  is currently have a deal for you!  Why not share with 3 or more of your friends and get 30% off of any purchase at St. Tropez online store.  The site is also currently offering free shipping for any purchase.  See the website for more details.

Have you tried any of St. Tropez Tanning Products?
