I got a press kit a few days ago for the entire Hard Candy Collection available now at Walmart. I haven’t been over to Walmart as of yet to take a peep…you know the Muse you have to drag her to that place kicking and screaming. Anyway like I said haven’t had a look at the items yet but whoa…after seeing the photos I was kicked over. It’s a HUGE selection of stuff. I think the line is actually bigger now that it’s at Walmart than it was when Hard Candy was a brand all it’s own.
From the looks of it they have over 25 items in a huge array of colors. They even have baked shadows and blushes now! The prices are $6 to $8 bucks each…so cheap. I’m very eager to try out some of it. I got a few items to test out but I want to head to the evil empire and snag some more as truly some bits look incredibly good. I felt like the line was actually more appealing now than it was prior to the merger.
Some folk may feel it’s a bit teen-ish but I thought they did a great job revamping it.
Anyway. ‘Nuff babble from me. Check out some pictures after the jump!
The Muse was busy Musing about the return of Hard Candy way back before it even became common news that indeed the brand was making a come back.
The gods have granted our wishes and Hard Candy shall be making an appearance in one week’s time!
Spread the love after the jump.
I’m not trying to get anyone’s hopes up and please don’t quote me on this but today I visited the Hard Candy site and came across this.
This could be one of two things. 1. It’s likely the URL was sold and a new site called “Hard Candy” is coming and maybe it will be nothing to do with makeup OR 2. (This is where you can get your hopes up) is Hard Candy coming back with a new line of cosmetics?
In this trying times one does doubt that they are redoing the entire line of cosmetics but how cool would it be if that was the case?
Here’s to hoping!
I have a deep love for Urban Decay cosmetics and it was my staple brand for many, many years however I never quite felt the love for it’s sister company, Hard Candy.
I’ve done a bit of a purchase here and there of a few makeup items from Hard Candy’s line however nothing quite grabbed and held my attention like Urban Decay’s offerings. A few years back….maybe two years now or three….they released a product called Sweet Cheeks Liquid Blush and it quickly became one of my very favorite items that I reached for daily.
I’m telling you this now because at the moment Sephora’s website and certain Sephora stores are still stocking Hard Candy Sweet Cheeks Liquid Blush and it’s a ridiculously low price of $3.38 USD down from it’s original price tag of $13.50 USD.
I had two of the colors selections already which were Baby and Girlie however during a recent Sephora order I ended up purchasing the other two shades since the prices couldn’t be passed up.
If you love Benefit Benetint and Posietint these are something you might be interested in purchasing. Although vastly different in both texture and formula when compared to Benefit stains these are an interesting offering that are worthy of your attention, especially considering they are under $4 USD each!
The product comes in a nail polish style packaging with a brush applicator for application. Simply dot a few drops on your cheeks and blend and you’re left with glowing peachy cheeks that last for hours. The formula acts like a stain with it’s incredible long wearing time but feels, looks, and blends like a creamy liquid blush. The blush is a thick creamy liquid that’s pigmented and blends much easier than stain as it’s not busy dripping down your cheeks do to it’s thick consistency.
All of the shade selections available are peachy in color with no pinkish color choices but that doesn’t really bother me because they are all rather beautiful and give a great glow to your face. The effect of the blush not only gives warmth to cheeks but also a glow and highlighted look.
Girlie is my favorite as it’s a cross between pink and peach. It’s possibly the most pigmented and a little bit goes a very long way to create a rather fresh, natural glow to my cheeks.
Sugar is my second favorite and is considerably more peachy in color than Girlie.
Honey Bunny doesn’t offer as good a coverage as Sugar and Girlie and acts more like a highlighter for my cheeks than as a blush however this doesn’t prevent it from being a very nice shade. I actually like applying a bit of Sugar with Honey Bunny on top for a bit of shimmer! Baby is also not pigmented enough to work fully as a blush however it does well as a highlighter. Baby is lighter peach shade where as Honey Bunny is a bronzy honey shade.
These are truly cute little blushes and well worth stopping at your Sephora to see if any are around left for purchase. I know Sephora has restocked on these several times and currently has 2 of the 4 shades available but do keep your eyes peeled as I did see them restocked several times already. Get them while the getting is good because they’ll be long gone before you know it at this price!
Well worth your cash!
The Muse Approves these for purchase! A Steal, a Deal, and a great blush!
