Happy Sunday! It’s snowing in Kansas City, the second weekend in a row! We don’t get a lot of snow, so this is pretty irritating. My daughter’s lacrosse game has been cancelled again — she’s still waiting to play the first game of the season!
I did a new (and new to me) Spring makeup post last week. You can read it here. I still have more products I have been trying for the first time that I wanted to share. Here are some of my new faves:
Hard Candy Fox in a Box Scented Marbleized Baked Powder ($7 USD) The packaging on these powders are so fun and they smell good, too! The packaging has a scratch and sniff sticker, so you can see what the powder smells like.
There are five shades, 3 bronzers and two blushes. That’s what the Wal-Mart website shows. I do have the lightest bronzer called Girl Boss. It’s so light and shimmery that I use it as a highlighter. It’s very glowy. I also have the blush Girl Next Door. It’s a pretty soft pink.
The Hard Candy Fox in A Box Scented Marbleized Baked Powder are available at Walmart and Walmart.com.
Pixi Beauty Palette Chloette ($24 USD) — This palette is a collaboration between Pixi and You Tuber Chloe Morello. The palette contains Chloe’s favorite shades inspired by love and romance. Super silky blush and eye shades bring that “in-love glow” to your complexion & lids. Plus, there is a trio of matte eye contour & liner shades that double as brow powders to define.
This colors are really soft and pretty. The shimmery eye shadows can double as highlighters. This will be really nice in the summer and it will be great to have one palette that takes care of most of a makeup look.

Maybelline New York Master Precise Ink Metallic Eyeliner ($8.99 USD) — This broad range of eyeliners provides brilliant metallic, pop and glitter finishes for show stopping eyes. The high impact shades come in 7 vibrant colors that last up to 12 hours! This works well for a cut crease or a pop of color. I have the Solar Gold shade and it looks really nice over a black liner.
Maybelline New York Curvitude Liner ($8.99 USD) Maybelline’s first angled eyeliner hugs tightly to the curve of the lash line for the most sensationally refined eyes. The angled pen reaches over the lid and effortlessly fills above and behind lashes, while the 0.2MM flex tip precisely glides between every lash to create a fuller lash line. I haven’t tried this one yet, but I think it would make doing a winged liner easier.
Maybelline New York Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner ($9.99 USD) Combining the precision of liquid eyeliner with the ease of a gel formula, Lasting Drama gives intense color that stays all day. The gel formula holds more pigments than a traditional liquid liner, to create the most intense color. This comes in 4 shades — Blackest Black, Brown, Charcoal and Eggplant. I don’t usually wear black liner, but this one is so pigmented and rich! I love it for waterlines and tight lining and the other shades for definition and color. You could definitely do a wing with these, too.
***NEW Maybelline New York Master Fixer Makeup Remover Pen*** ($7.99 USD) Everyone makes mistakes! See mishaps disappear in the blink of an eye with Maybelline’s makeup corrector tool. Now, correct liner mistakes instantly, all without ruining your look. Maybelline’s makeup remover pen touches up any smudges or marks without leaving behind a greasy feeling.

ybf Fall in Love Lipstick & Lipgloss duo ($22 USD) — This lightly scented, hydrating lipstick and lip gloss duo is suitable for every skin tone and will leave lips looking bold and voluptuous. With a creamy paraben-free formula infused with Smart Active Complexes, lips are rich, luminous and smooth for a soft n’ silky, pout.
The lipstick comes with a convenient case with a protractible mirror attached, making it the perfect lip essential to take and apply on the go.
The shades are Passionate Pink (in the photo above), Bloomin’ Berry/Rockin’ Raspberry, Regal & Romantic Red, & Kissable Coral. The lipsticks are very creamy and moisturizing. My favorite is the gloss. It is gorgeous, hydrating and not sticky at all!
