    Oh dear – I need the blushing quads!


    • 2/18/11 10:58 the Muse:

      me TOO suzanne ;D!


  • 2/18/11 11:19 BeautyMaven:

    That ccncealer is calling my name!


    • 2/18/11 11:25 the Muse:

      mine too Beauty Maven :D!


  • 2/18/11 11:34 Nunuiviet:

    The blushing quad looks like the packaging of benefit blushes


  • 2/18/11 11:40 Jessica Allison:

    Wow, Mass market brands really seem to be stepping up, huh? I wasn’t terribly impressed with my first foray into Walmart’s HC line (the fiber mascara) but I have to admit the luminizing primer is tempting- and the foundation is packaged almost identically to my long defunct HG, Pout. That probably means nothing, but it certainly warrants an investigation!


  • 2/18/11 12:44 breyerchic04:

    4 day mascara has to suck, but I have to try it to see!

    Their pressed bronzer I tried made my skin itch, so I’m scared to use that blush, but oooooooh.


  • 2/18/11 13:03 Jaime:

    Um I’ll take one of everything please! I’m really interested in the lash ink and the undercover brightener/concealer.


    • 2/18/11 13:25 the Muse:

      ha jamie ditto!


  • 2/18/11 13:42 Eve:

    I am intrigued by that lash ink. I would get it only if it dyes the lashes and doesn’t leave on that clumpy mascara feel.


  • 2/18/11 14:02 neutralgirl:

    Hey muse, we already have the glosses and the fox in a box blushes at Walmart and my friend Peri (who u talk to sometimes on here) got the lipglosses and love them! I got one of the blushes and wanted to love it. The color was so pretty, but it smelled badly of cheap makeup so beware. That is probably it’s only downfall. If u can get past that then indulge away!


    • 2/18/11 14:04 the Muse:

      hi neutralgirl! ha you know peri? brilliant! thanks hun for the low down! heading to the evil empire this weekend to check it out if I get a chance thanks hun!


  • 2/18/11 14:43 jenna:

    i’m willing to give the sequin lipgloss a chance. but i’ve tried fiberized mascara, blush, and an eyeshadow duo from HC and with all three products i would swear it was toy makeup if i didnt know better! I could see the product in the pan and yet it refused to apply to my face and remained totally invisible. Frustrating that the packaging and names are freaking cute!


    • 2/18/11 14:51 the Muse:

      aw jenna sorry! shadows are iffy and the blush too. the newer shades of shadows were way nicer than the old duos they did ;-D blush was hard to pick up for me too, kabuki brushes works ;D!


  • 2/18/11 16:28 jeansco:

    the boxed blush and concealer look interesting! hehe..wonder if the boxed blush will be close to being a dupe of benefit?? =P


    • 2/18/11 16:31 the Muse:

      we can hope jean :)


  • 2/18/11 17:07 Mavis:

    yiiiikes! the lash ink sounds sketchy… i dont know how i feel about leaving mascara on for four days! definitely gonna try. LOL


  • 2/18/11 18:09 LorraineER:

    Heee he, the name “Fox in a Box” is too freakin’ cute! Love it! I’ve been steering clear of Hard Candy lately because I was disappointed in my first couple purchases after they moved to Wal-Mart. I want to check out their blushes though and I’m still a fan of their Welcome Matte powder.


  • 2/18/11 19:59 Nicole:

    The foundation and lash tint ARE CALLING MY NAME!
    Muse is to concealer as Nicole is to foundation. I’m obsessed with finding the perfect foundation that will cover well, perfect my acne-prone-but-dry skin, and STAY ON. I don’t have time for touch ups!
    And the lash tint, I have naturally long lashes. I just wish that my pale eyelash tips were dark so I’m like, WOOT. So excited!


  • 2/18/11 21:13 grace:

    pleeeeaseee do a review on the blush, concealer and foundation?
    i would LOVE to see your review on it just cas i love how thorough u are with all ur reviews. :} hehe


  • 2/19/11 1:32 Kaye:

    Those all look awesome! Particularly interested in the concealer and foundation… and the 4-day mascara, but I’ll definitely wait for reviews before buying that one, lol!


  • 2/19/11 10:01 Aging_Beauty:

    FYI: Most all of these are on the Walmart website. I’ll happily pay $.99 shipping to save me a trip into our Wally World! It’s CHAOS!


  • 2/19/11 18:00 Mia:

    I saw this in an ad MONTHS ago. It was written down that it was supposed to come out this previous week (Feb 14th). It’s STILL not at Walmart and I’m so impatient about this. I’m just about dying to get my hands on the concealer & foundation!


  • 2/19/11 21:21 p:

    goodness! i loove hard candy, but the only thing really popping out at me here is the super adorable blush quad! WHERES THE SPRING SPARKLE!?!? also- the bronzer has been at my walmart since at least xmas…or is this a new version?


  • 2/21/11 5:20 Jennifer Lam:

    Oooo, I can’t wait!


  • 2/21/11 10:23 DivaEC:

    Wow! I am excited about the lash ink and the boxed blushes. They look great. I think I will try to find those today. I only have one Hard Candy product and it is a baked bronzer. I have to say, I love it! I have tried many bronzer’s (even high end ones) and their bronzer is fantastic. I can’t wait to give these a try. Thanks for sharing, Muse!!!


    • 2/22/11 16:34 the Muse:

      My pleasure Diva ;-D! Good Luck hunting them out :D!


  • 2/22/11 5:06 Melissa:

    I was interested in trying out the Lash Ink so I ventured to Walmart today and wasn’t able to find it! Maybe it’s too soon, I guess I’ll have to try again in about a week or so!


    • 2/22/11 8:25 the Muse:

      good luck Melissa :)


  • 2/22/11 20:53 Bridgette:

    I rarely go to Walmart, but I feel that I must… Kekeke, save some of those goodies for me~ That concealer/eye brightener looks good, and so does the lipgloss and the blush and the bronzerandthemascaraandthe….. well, I think you get it 😉


  • 2/23/11 11:19 Littlecreek:

    I nabbed the lash ink yesterday. I don’t think I’ll get four days out of it, but I will definatly get two maybe three. Some came off when I used my makeup remover wipe, but I slept with it on and had hardly any raccoon shadows this morning. What little that had rubbed off was easily wiped away. It does not lengthen or volumize (then again it didn’t promise to). Not exacty what I hoped it would be (I really wanted it be a semi-permanent dye), but I did enjoy not having to apply mascara today so I’ll probably use it all up.


  • 2/25/11 13:49 Lisa:

    Just picked up the Lash Ink and it isn’t clumpy at all. I really like how it applied. Now as for the 4 days, time will tell. I saw all of the new products you listed, but the Lash Ink was the only one I got today. I hope it does last a few days.


    • 2/25/11 14:43 the Muse:

      thanks for the deets Lisa ;-D wasn’t sure about this one but sounds promising!


  • 2/26/11 22:12 Penny:

    I wonder if only some Walmarts are getting these? The one near me doesn’t have them yet. I went to two on my trip out of town this weekend and they had the Lash Ink and Fox in A Box displays them but were sold out!


    • 2/28/11 10:46 the Muse:

      penny I believe all of ’em but they are taking a second to pop up :)


  • 3/1/11 18:34 Shelly:

    love all my hard candy products EXCEPT glossoholic rise and shine… the smell is disgusting! The tinted moisturiser is AMAZING though i have light, dry skin and it has great coverage, even enough to not wear foundation over it!
    i wish they sold at cvs or target or sephora too!


  • 5/5/11 11:27 Gidget:

    I adore Hard Candy. I really, really like the “Chill Out” Glossaholic! It smells like vnilla cake, and tastes good too! And it actually works!

    I also got the pink luminizer, which I love!!! And another bottle of Sheer Envy TM, which is one of the best out there, in my opinion!

    I haven’t seen the foundation or the mascaras in the store yet, has anyone tried them?
