I reviewed Hard Candy Visibly Wet Glossy Lip Pencil when it first launched and wasn’t terribly impressed with it but I recently got one of the new shades to check out and I kinda felt like it was an improvement.
Let’s check it!
A glossy lip pencil!
Hard Candy recently extended the line to include five new shades. The older shades were all about subdued, friendly colors however the new shades contain a healthy kick of shimmer and to me, a more pigmented formula.
I tried out Babe and man it’s a shockingly pigmented fuchsia! If you like louder, vibrant colors you should probably re-explore these if you tried them before or check them out for the first time.
It’s not incredibly glossy in terms of finish in my opinion but it does have a nice hydrating feel on lips and it’s main benefit would be the great color pay off of the product. Although I’m not a fan of shades of fuchsia on my lips, I thought Babe looked rather wicked.
Kinda disappointing they don’t have a super shiny, glossy finish but can’t complain too much about the formula considering it seems a vast improvement compared to the first five, original colors that were released.
- Those who love bold, vibrant lippies!
- Anyone wanting a easy to tote lip product (the pencil is super travel friendly).
- Anyone wanting a glossy finish (this seems to have a vinyl-like finish on lips but not crazy glossy or shiny).
- Anyone who can’t do bold (the new shades are mega pigmented so if you prefer softer shades, best avoid).
Hard Candy Visibly Wet Glossy Lip Pencils not only got a revamp in color but formula feels alot different as well. This time around you’re getting more pigment for your buck. I actually liked Babe alot and at $6 I can’t complain too much. I may go ahead and check out the other new colors as well! For the goth crowd there is a new purple color called Jezebel that looks rockin’!
