A happiest of holidays, blog fans! I hope everyone has been enjoying the season. I've been cuddled up with books and chocolate (jolabokaflod style) but my quiet days will soon end as the frivolities of New Years are on their way. As I've said about the holidays in general, it's the season to ramp up glitter adornment. But, if there ever was an evening to really imbibe in the glitzy stuff, it's New Years. Hard Candy is all about shimmer, glitter, metallics, and just about anything shiny, making them a perfect go-to should you need more glam in your makeup game.

Clearly, the fastest way to go glam is with glitter. The Poppin Pigments All Over Glitter Pigments may be little (how cute are the little bottles!?) but they pack a glittery punch. The trio includes must have shades- gold, silver, and copper- that can be applied to eyes, brows, or lips. These are very glittery (as one would expect) and as such do need a glitter glue or tacky primer to get the most out of them. the gold shade especially, as it is more of a true glitter with a bit more texture than the super fine glitter pigment of the silver and copper shades.

There is no need to go hunting for a budget-friendly glitter glue, as the Poppin Pigments Glitter Stay Glitter Primer is on the scene. The primer works to hold glitter and pigments on skin, while also amplifying their glitter finish. The primer feels like any other, but the trick is to apply it then let is dry down for a few moments. It then gets tacky, and voila crease, transfer, and fade-resistant glitter!

Molten metal lips, brows, and eyes. If you're into such a look, the Metal Glaze 12 HR Intense Liquid Foil is so for you. The liquid product (think liquid lipstick type texture) that gives a matte, metallic finish. Formulated with coconut water to keep the finish comfortable, the effect is long lasting and quite stunning. It's available in a gorgeous yellow gold (as shown) rose, and silver.

If a more traditional metallic look is more your style, the Metallic Mousse Matte Mettalic Lip Colour has you covered. With a soft matte, cream formula (it stays creamy, so it's not drying) and a gorgeous pop of metallic sheen. The range is home to seven shades, with Queen of Hearts being a medium plummy red.

Black liner is clearly and essential item, but sometimes it too can use a little glimmer too. The Stroke of Gorgeous Soft Glide Eyeliner in Glitter Abyss offers up a deep black shade with a bit of silvery shimmer. Given the name, I did expect something a bit softer, but once this warms on contact with skin, it does glide pretty easily.

Now that we've covered a few of our glitter/shimmer options, there's the essential step of making sure it stays put. The Fast & Fabulous Makeup Setting Spray is a weightless mist that works to lock and set every bit of makeup you've go going and prevents melting, fading, and makeup from settling into fine lines.

Overall, Hard Candy has your NYE look covered. I love that they offer modern finishes (aka all the metallics) at such budget-easy prices. you can trial something you may have otherwise overlooked without spending a fortune. See anything you need in your NYE makeup look?
