I can't escape from Wal-Mart......

....without some sort of makeup in my cart!

I'm a sucker for sparkles and cute packaging (who isn't, really?).  On my last trip to Wal-Mart I managed to make it out with only two things! *gasp!*

I picked up Hard Candy's Glow all the way luminizer (which I've yet to really test drive) and this cute single eyeshadow from Hard Candy as well.

 This shade is called Lunar Eclipse
 (Oh. My. Jammies.  I love shiny stuff!)
The eyeshadow also came with a mini eyeliner pencil in a shade called Abyss, which to my eye looks like a black with some sparkle.  This is my first eyeshadow from Hard Candy.  It was a little dry to work with but I expected it to be much worse...I really thought that this was going to be a product that just looked cute sitting on my vanity and I was very surprised at how nice it actually was.  This is the look that I created with it:

Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as primer (I'm out of UDPP and it's been working pretty well so far....)
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy (I know it's usually for loose shadow but with all the sparklies, I thought it would be to my advantage.  Overall, I think it was a good decision)
Hard Candy Lunar Eclipse
Hard Candy Abyss eyeliner
Sassy Minerals Merlin's Ball (inner corners and brow bone highlight)
120 Palette (Just a random white to highlight and buff out the Lunar Eclipse)
Maybelline define-a-line eyeliner (waterline)
Maybelline Falsies mascara

The eyeliner that came with the eyeshadow was did what it was supposed to do but it was nothing to write home about.  The sparkles in the liner didn't really show up on my eyelid.  It didn't really matter as the whole look was sparkly enough :)

No full face shots because I had two impacted wisdom teeth removed plus one extra tooth and my face is still pretty puffy!

Wow, very pretty and sparkly! I don't know what it is, I keep picking those glittery shadows up when I'm at Walmart, and then putting them back. :D
