In 2012, I shared how much I loved Hard Candy Sheer Envy primer. Since then, I had not tried any of their products due to not living near a Walmart with their line (insert sad face). When they reached out to me to try their new Sheer Envy that was color correcting, I jumped at the chance. I was also able to sample their Single and Loving It eye shadows in Oink! and Sandy Beach.
I was very surprised when I swatched these to find that one was white-light pink and the other was golden. In the packaging, I think they look like they will be much different. Having said that, these two pair very nicely together when doing the "sandwich" method of eye shadow application. The pigmentation is on point and they last well with a primer.
These single eye shadows will run $3/ea. There are 4 other shades in addition to these.
This new primer is exactly like the original Sheer Envy in every shape and form except for the color. This one is green and is meant to color correct and balance skin tone. While I love what it does to smooth out my skin and extend the wear time of foundation, it does very little for me in the color correct department. At first, it works well but the balancing act only lasts a few hours at most.
This primer runs $8 and is available in 5 other shades that offer differing qualities.
