Hard Candy Lip Def Lip Lacquer is a newly launched gloss that will be popping up at Walmart soon. Lip Def will be available in ten shades for six bucks each.
Take a peek!
Hard Candy Lip Def is marketed as a super shiny lip color with 3D Pearls that create the illusion of volume. You might recognize the packaging on these as they resemble Hard Candy’s Eye Def Liquid Eye Shadow. Same concept with a sponge tip applicator application.
I only tried one shade so far which is Midnight Stroll, a bright violet purple. This has a shimmery pearlescent finish with very subtle color pay off. Granted I only tried the one shade but if the formula is consistent on all the colors we’re in for some disappointment.
This has a thick silicone-like texture that wraps lips in an uncomfortab heavy emollient gloss. It isn’t tacky or sticky but it is quite heavy. The formula would actually prove ok and I could cope with the heaviness if they applied well. Unfortunately the color is sheer and very patchy so you have moments of purple on some areas of your lip with skin showing through on other areas…it’s just NOT a pretty look.
The wear time is fairly good as the gloss wraps around lips and hangs around well. It remains fresh throughout the wear and you can head into at least three to four hours in before it starts fading away.
I’m going to go ahead and try a few more shades when I locate these at Walmart because it could be this shade was the exception to the formula. However, I’m not holding out hope. I think the formula just isn’t a pleasant one. A little too thick, a little too heavy, and the patchiness, ugh!
This is available now at Walmart.
