Were you outside this past weekend or do you have sunny day outdoor plans? Hard Candy is here to help with their Mix-In Pigment Makeup Drops. These $7 items will save you mucho dinero because you can adapt your foundation or moisturizer into the color you want. I’m not a sun person but even with sunscreen daily I’m still getting some color on my face and neck, it’s inevitable. My pale pale foundations make me look even more ghostly in the summer so having the opportunity to warm myself up and adding just the right amount of color is quite welcome.
These are part of the Glamoflauge line from Hard Candy and the Mix-In pigment drops are available in 12 shades from Fair 1 to Deep 3. These will help almost every skintone to customize their color. The lightest one is Fair 1 which I love in the winter because it lightens my foundations while the two I was sent will darken my foundations. No need to buy a foundation that I will only wear a little in the summer since I’m in control.
There are 3 deep shades with deep 3 being considerably darker than deep 1. And there are 3 medium shades, 4 light shades, and 2 fair shades. Start small and build up as needed. You’ll have fuller coverage if you add in more drops but if you just want to color adjust use a drop or two.
I chose one of my lightest foundations from Geri G to show you how you can change your shades. My advice is to shake the bottle well and then drop a tiny amount into your hand before adding foundation or moisturizer. You can always add more.
Another way to make some changes in your foundation is to make it MATTE! Hard Candy has the solution for that too. Add in TURN ME MATTE mix-in drops. Use it with any liquid or cream foundation to mattify the finish. If you get oily looking in the heat these mix-ins can change that for you.
This is wonderful for the T-zone since that shine will be gone plus it helps blur imperfections – and who doesn’t want that??
This is a thicker texture than the Makeup Mix-Ins but you still don’t need a lot to get a silky matte finish. Mix it in with your foundation before applying and/or use it alone on the areas you get shiny.
“The mattifying drops reduce shininess on the face, especially in the T-Zone, absorb excess oil and sebum, and minimize and blur pores to create a matte complexion. Skin will be more blurred, with pores becoming less visible.”
Hard Candy Mix-In Glamoflauge products are basically fragrance free since you won’t notice any scent on your face when used. A little goes a long way. At $7 each you can make major changes to your foundation wardrobe without making major changes to your bottom line. As my mom used to say “Try it, you’ll like it.” — Marcia
