Eye Love Wednesday - Hard Candy Stay In Line 12hr Mechanical Gel Eyeliner

Hard Candy Stay In Line 12hr Mechanical Gel Eyeliner - $5.98 - in 7 shades: Blackest-Black, Black-Metallic, Dark-Chocolate, Pearl-White, Eggplant, Midnight, Gun-Metal - with a long-wearing formula that is easy to apply and glides along the lash line and water line without pulling or tugging on the delicate skin around your eyes.

It has a great texture that after application, will begin to dry down and then set in to a smudge and budge resistant formula that won't crack, fade or flake off throughout the day. And to make things easy, it comes with a built in smudger and sharpener, so you can achieve either a thin, precise line or a smudged, smokey eye liner look. Simply flip the pencil over to use the smudger and pull the smudger out of the bottom of the pencil barrel to reveal the sharpener, then snap it back in after sharpening.

Available exclusively at Walmart stores across Canada and online at walmart.ca.

It works by affecting the upper layer of skin for improved skin texture, reaches into the dermis for rejuvenation and collagen restoration and penetrates deep into the subdermal fat for deep tissue tightening and wrinkle reduction - with visible results after just 10 treatments - but also works in just one treatment by plumping up the skin, increasing circulation and adding radiance to the skin.

Dr. Teal’s Body Lotion - 473ml - $9.99 - restores essential nutrients to the skin while it helps soothe  tired muscles thanks to a formula containing a blend of natural moisturizing cocoa butter, skin-softening shea butter and protective vitamin E that is paraben and phthalate free.

In 3 formulations :

Moisture + Ultra Rich Shea Butter Essential Oil - with a deeply nourishing formula that leaves skin feeling smooth and radiant. The ultra moisturizing formula also contains sweet almond oil and relaxing sandalwood essential oil.

Moisture + Rejuvenating Eucalyptus & Spearmint Essential Oils - with a lightweight, refreshing formula that relieves dry skin with a revitalizing touch.

Moisture + Nourishing Coconut Essential Oil - with a lightweight formula that brings moisture back to the skin leaving it soft and smooth.

Texture and scent-wise the Eucalyptus & Spearmint are going to be my go-to for spring and summer - light moisture that smells super clean and fresh - but I will be keeping the Shea Butter in reserve for when the weather cools down again - if your skin is on the dry side you will want to get your hands on its rich moisture and warm scent now!
