Hard Candy Glossaholic Lipgloss Review, Photos, Swatches
Missed out on MAC Wonder Lipglasses? Or maybe already hauled ‘em and wish MAC made them in more shades?
No worries, Hard Candy Glossaholic Lipgloss has you covered.
A gloss with reflective prisms of pearl to make lips sparkle like crazy and a large applicator that slicks gloss on in one stroke!
So best news here? The price and size. Budget shoppers will love the fact that Hard Candy Glossaholic is actually BIGGER than MAC’s Wonder Lipglass and has a smaller price tag.
0.38 oz of gloss resides in this tube versus MAC’s 0.37 oz size. The price? A sweet $5 bucks versus $20 bucks at MAC! How crazy is that? There are eight shades to choose from but I sadly only got one to try out but damn straight I’ll be hauling the other 7 at this price.
I played around with the shade Gorgeous which is a sweet pink with micro fine pieces of red pearl. At first I was a bit worried about the amount of “bits” in the formula as the pearl pigment appears to be chunky glitter but it doesn’t apply gritty or grainy on my lips and gives a nice catch of sparkle. Although Gorgeous is very pretty in the tube it wears opaque on my lips aside from the tiny pieces of pearlish sparkle which reflects reddish pink on my lips.
The applicator is huge just like MAC’s Wonder Lipglasses. I absolutely love it as one stroke saturates lips easily with plenty of gloss to give them nice shine and a glossy finish. Everyone should embrace these cool applicators as they fit the contour of lips so wonderfully and apply a generous helping of gloss without having to re-dip to get the desired results.
The gloss formula doesn’t run as sticky or as tacky as MAC’s version. It’s lightweight, eels comfortably on, and has a sweet vanilla taste that’s way more pleasant to my mouth than MAC’s traditional vanilla flavor.
The gloss wear time isn’t too strong and you’re looking at about three hours of wear as it tends to glide away rather quickly.
- Anyone who missed out on MAC Wonder Lipglass or simply couldn’t afford MAC’s version.
- Anyone wanting alot more for alot less (this is a HUGE amount of gloss for a mere $5 bucks!).
- Students, teens, or beauty budgeters!
- Anyone wanting a long wearing lipgloss (wear time was a bit weak but nothing I couldn’t deal with at this price).
- Those wanting a pigmented lipgloss (I only tried one shade so far but it was pretty weak in the color pay off department).
Overall, Hard Candy Glossaholic gets a huge rave and Muse Approval from me. It’s surreal they are charging a mere $5 bucks for such a large amount of gloss. The formula is quite nice, the flavor is lovely, and I adore the larger applicator. I felt like the gloss was one of the best budget picks I’ve seen in a very long time plus they have a decent amount of colors to choose so you’ll have a bit of variety in your lipgloss budget life.
Absolutely adored these and felt they were well worth a haul!
Anyone try ‘em yet?
