Brand Spotlight: Hard Candy
Ever since this brand was mentioned in the Gossip Girl books, we’ve been hooked. The packaging is cute, the products are inexpensive and budget friendly, and they’re available at Walmart. Do you need any other reason to try one of these Hard Candy products?
Some people swear by high end brands like OPI or CND. Us? We’ll pick these babies any day. They’re full of different textures, colors, hues, and finishes. The colors really pop, and they’re the best anti-chip lacquers we’ve found in a drugstore yet.
Glamoflauge Mix-In Pigment Makeup Drops
Foundation drops are the coolest thing since makeup setting spray. They help create custom colors of foundation so you’ll always be able to match your skin tone. Glamoflauge line products are also very thick, meaning that they’ll cover imperfections really well.
Kat Von D created her foundation and concealer to be strong enough to cover tattoos. There aren’t a lot of concealers on the market that have this capability, so Hard Candy stepped up to the plate. They made a concealer that seriously rivals Kat Von D’s, and it’s way less expensive. Heavy duty and some good coverage, here.
Glow All the Way Baked Blush
We love these blushes because a little goes a long way, yet they’re still sheer. They give you the perfect wash of color while catching the light and giving your skin a radiant but natural finish. We love the color Living Doll. It’s perfect for those porcelain pink cheeks.
All Glossed Up
This lipgloss crayon came out during the crayon craze, inspired by Clinique’s Chubby Sticks. Hard Candy does a phenomenal job packing these lippies full of glossy color and pigment, so they remain on your lips like a stain. You can fill in your lips comfortably with the shape of this lipgloss, too.
Plumping Serum Volumizing Lip Gloss
There’s nothing better than a product that does way more than you think it will. This lip gloss blew our minds because it’s volumizing, it’s scented like vanilla, and the range of colors is great. With hyaluronic acid as an ingredient, this gloss truly does plump your lips.
Walk the Line Liquid Eyeliner
Glitter is the best. Hands down. Whatever product you’re talking about – put some glitter in it and instantly it’s better. OK, but really this eyeliner is precise. Smudge proof, dries quickly, and one layer is good enough. We love the shade Licorice, but White Knight is a unique color.
Take Me out Liner
Here’s another sparkle-infused product. Hard Candy’s liners rival Urban Decay in their smoothness, longevity, and range of colors. This liner is vibrant, and it won’t gently smudge throughout the day like so many other creamy pencil liners. 3rd Place is a beautiful bronze color; the pencil does come in several other earth toned shades.
There’s nothing better than a travel-friendly product. These Shadow-Spheres come in three different color palettes, but they all flattering for every skin tone. Included is a little blending brush for easy on-the-go application. They even threw in a few highlight shades so you can spruce up your glow during the day.
Fierce Effects Lipstick
Um, pigmentation, packaging, and hydrating lipstick? Yes! These lippies are seriously fantastic. They hydrate your lips, deposit an insane amount of pigment without getting heavy or cakey. The Argan oil in this lipstick even smells good. Our favorite shade? Virtual Reality. But don’t worry there are nude colors for those of you ladies who don’t wan to rock other colors like green, white, and royal blue.
Besides, there are rhinestones on the packaging. Can you really say no?
