HARD CANDY COSMETICS REVIEW

I have been a huge fan of Hard Candy for years, the Baked Blushes, Bronzers and lip products have been my favorites but I’m always willing to try new products.

Here’s a look at a couple of Hard Candy items I was given the chance to try:

Metallic Volumizing Lip Gloss


This lip gloss comes with a sponge tip applicator that glides onto the lips without jumping or skipping.

My color is called Shocking, it is a bright dark pink shade with little glitter specs throughout to give a duo chromed look.


It is not super shiny or glossy and is easily buildable but I found a coat or two was all I needed, it lasts a long time – longer than most lip glosses and my lips stayed hydrated and not dried out.. 


The lip glosses use hyaluronic acid and fruit extracts to plump up the lips and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the lip area. 

This lip gloss can be worn alone or on top of lipstick for more intense color. 

I love changing up my style once in a while with bright bold colors so this is perfect for me.
Hard Candy is great at having products come in a range of bold colors along with sheer to nude shades and now they have added 6 new spring time shades.

Plumping Lip Primer


This lip primer also has a sponge tip applicator, doesn’t jump or skip and uses hyaluronic acid to plump up the lips.

I liked the tingly, minty feeling when applying.

It gives volume to the lips by getting into the fine lines and doesn’t give duck lips (thank goodness!).
It dries down to a matte finish, that didn’t leave my lips feeling dry at all and it lasts the entire day!

It makes a nice smooth surface to apply my lipsticks.

Baked Powder Highlighting Trio

The color I received is called “Make the First Mauve” – love it!

This is a marbleized highlighting palette of pinks and mauves.

I usually use more nude or bronze tones for contouring and was scared to use a bright mauve color on my light skin but this one worked well.

It is very light and subtle.

I loved the middle pink color for blush and the shimmery highlighter is beautiful.

Stroke of Gorgeous Long Wear Eyeliner Pencil

This eyeliner has a smooth application and didn’t jump or skip on my eyelids when applying.

The color I received is a bright blue called “Wink Wink “and is so pigmented.





Again I love being able to change up my look with bright bold colors, this eyeliner lasted all day without fading even with my watery / teary eyes.

Sheer Envy Skin Perfecting Primer

This primer glides on so soft and leaves skin feeling like silk.

It brightened my dull skin and the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and pores decreased to provide a flawless, smooth matte finish.
The matte finish stayed for quite a few hours even with my oily skin.


The thing I love about Hard Candy is the amazing options and colors they have, from lip gloss, mascara to fun and funky eyeshadows, nude shades to bright and bold colors and they are at an inexpensive price – it really is for everyone.
