Oooh yum! Painted Lady Manic Shine Intense lip color, Eye Tattoo and Balm Girls Tinted Lip Balms, Just Nails polish with the little plastic heart rings, Eye Candy shadows and Fortune Gloss with a tiny Magic 8 ball!
Delicious right? It could have been rumors or marketing intended for another area (as usual). Imagine my surprise when I saw this in my neighborhood Walmart:
No time to mourn the loss of Max Factor from US shores (or for Walmart staff to completely remove the Max Factor display)... Hard Candy has moved in! The line looks so fun and exhilirating! I didn't go snap happy at the display as I didn't want to look like the drugstore paparazzi =p I was drooling though, wanting to buy up everything!
Here's what I picked up: Bombshell (128) baked blush and Crush lipstick
I used Crush lipstick on this night out and FOTD
(Sweet! No animal testing!!)
Swatches: Bombshell blush on left, Crush lipstick on right
The Hard Candy baked blushes are .28oz compared to MAC baked mineralized blushes that are .11oz. Don't get me started on the price comparison! Well, Hard Candy baked blushes are $7. Yes, you read that right, $7.
The line's design is super cute with an Ed Hardy feel. I'm anxious to try more. As for the products I bought and tried, I'm loving them! You can use the blushes wet or dry. On me, the blush is pretty intense dry. The lipstick isn't super thick and creamy, but it does have a nice feel (not a lot of slip, thank goodness!) and great pigmentation. I think Crush might be a popular color (oh and she has a kick azz review of the line!)
Have you gotten your hands on any Hard Candy at your Walmart? Tell me, tell me all about it!
