Hard Candy - This new makeup collection is found in Walmart stores. Check your local Walmart for more details.
Color I tested: Perfect 10 (Creamy neutral beige Pink with Peachy undertones)
product: 2.5 stars out of 5
packaging: 4.5 stars out of 5
quality: 3 stars out of 5
overall : 2.5 stars out of 5...I took points off for Hard Candy not providing a working website so that I can look at the whole collection that it offers in it's entirety... it is currently 'under construction'.
would buy again? No
where to buy: Walmart stores or Walmart.com (Hard Candy website is under construction)
pros: Nice color selection, Packaging is unique and nice, creamy texture, feels like a creamy
lipgloss. Smell is pleasant, not strong.
cons: Not long lasting, pigmentation is bad/it is very sheer, lipstick is waxy-doesn't stick to lips, gives a horrible finish. Over-priced.
Overall: I was not happy with this lipstick at all. For starters, price is $6. Ok, NYC has better lipsticks & glosses for $2-$4. I have a collection of Santee and NK lippies ($1 each) that are better quality than these. Not to mention this lipstick looks very cheaply made. The color is buildable but when I was done achieving the color I wanted, my lips looked uneven and waxy. Lipstick color as it appears on the lips seems to travel to the outline of the lips as time goes by. The lipstick is moisturizing...for about 10 minutes...because this is when the lipstick starts to wear off. I would not recommend this lipstick to anyone simply because it is over-priced and not long-lasting.
Here are some I recommend for that sheer lips look without spending too much:
*Bonne Bell Liplites
*Milani crystal glosses
*NYC liquid lip shine
*Cover Girl lipslicks lipgloss
*Rimmel lasting finish lipstick
*Neutrogena Moistureshine lip sheer
*Maybelline Moisture extreme lipcolor
