Hard Candy Single & Loving It Eyeshadow Singles

Hard Candy Single & Loving It Eyeshadow Singles

The new Hard Candy Single & Loving It eyeshadows ($3) come in a collection of 6 different color options.  Each eyeshadow color choice is a combination of three different colors in a splatter design.  They remind me a lot of the Stila Countless Color Pigments only smaller and much, much cheaper.

Hard Candy Stroke Of Gorgeous ($5) is a felt tip eyeliner pen available in 3 different colors.  I bought the color In The Navy to test out.  Let’s see what I think.

In The Navy is exactly as it sounds, a deep navy blue color.  I was expecting it to be just a flat matte eyeliner shade but it actually has a shiny almost metallic look to it.  I love it!

Hard Candy Green With Envy Top Ten Eyeshadow Collection, Pictures and Swatches

Hardy Candy Green With Envy Top Ten Eyeshadow Collection

For Fall 2012, Hard Candy has released five different Top Ten Eyeshadow Collection Sets ($6).  There is one in blues, pinks, greens, neutrals and smokey shades.  Each palette comes with 10 eyeshadows in a nice, compact flip top plastic container.  The tops of the packaging are so cute with a coordinating padded lace fabric piece.  The inside of the lid contains a slim, long mirror.

I don’t have very many green eyeshadow shades, so I decided to purchase the Green With Envy collection.  Green With Envy has a nice variety of darker, wearable greens along with several neutral shades.  Every color in this collection is a shimmery shade.  I immediately thought the colors were beautiful when I first spotted this at WalMart!

Hard Candy Glossy Tinted Lip Balm – Fishnet and Starfish

Hard Candy tinted lip balm

Hard Candy has a new line of Glossy Tinted Lip Balms ($3.00) now available at Wal-Mart.  For only 3 bucks a tube, I wasn’t expecting much.  But they are glossy and they do provide a bit of color too.  Each of these tinted lip balms has a sweet candy type scent but I don’t detect any flavors.

There are eight Hard Candy tinted lip balm colors in the line and each has a different colorful design on the outside of the tube.  I chose to purchase the colors Fishnet and Starfish.

In the tube, Fishnet is a bright pink color.  The clear cover is printed in a fishnet design with a large pink rose on the front.  I was quite disappointed with the color of this one on the lips.  It actually only gave my lips a slight hint of pink.  I expected a bit more color but was pleased by the amount of shine they provide.

Starfish on the other hand looks very orange in the tube.  It has a silver lace design on the outside with dark red and orange flowers.  I was expecting it to be maybe a light peach on the lips but that’s not what I got.  Surprisingly, Starfish is quite pink on the lips.  Weird, but true.

The packaging on these tinted lip balms makes no promise of moisture which is good because they don’t provide my lips with any.  Even though they don’t moisturize or soothe the lips, they aren’t drying either.

And speaking of packaging, that’s another negative.  I love the look of these but they don’t wind down completely in the tube.  They always stick out about 1/2″ which makes them feel flimsy and I keep waiting for it to break off.

As with most lip balms, these Hard Candy ones really don’t have much staying power.  Throughout the day I was finding myself reapplying the lip balm every two to three hours.  But for the price and the glossiness provided, they’re good to use as a quick bit of color.  If you’re looking for more pigmented shades, stick with the darker colored ones.
