Hard Candy Button Your Lipgloss and Liner Diva Review and Swatches

Hard Candy Button Your Lipgloss and Liner Diva 1

Hey lovies!

How’s everyone doing on the Hard Candy front?  Everyone get a chance to see the line?  Try it?   What are your thoughts so far?

I think it’s pretty good.  It’s not fabulous mind you but the quality lives up to the hype and the price is appealing as all heck.

Today I have Hard Candy Button Your Lipgloss and Liner on my lips in Diva so I thought I’d give you the good word on the set!

At $8 I’d say that the Hard Candy Button Your Lipgloss and Liner Sets are probably in the higher price range as most of the items are in the $6 department but do keep in mind you get a gloss and liner as a set for the price.

First off I do think it deserves to be mentioned $8 is way too much to spend on the set if you don’t use liner. I happen to fall into the do not want category in regards to lip liner so the set is a little bit higher end if I’m going to use just the gloss and toss the liner. On another note I thought the liner included with my particular set was way off base. I got the shade selection Diva which is a fiery gorgeous orange but the liner is a dull brown…see my dilemma? Glad I’m not a lip liner lover as I’d be sincerely disappointed how badly the brown liner pairs up with the fiery orange of the gloss.

Aside from these minor rants I’m on board with the gloss. The gloss is a fine product! Nicely pigmented, good tack and stick for decent wearing and tearing, glides nicely on the lips, and a great little click pen lip brush for application (love this style of applicator!). The shade could prove to be a somewhat decent dupe for MAC Pink Grapefruit, could be why I choose it. Diva is a mix of orange, red, gold, and coral with a shimmering gold finish, quite bold and vibrant.

I’d probably buy again if they would opt to bring the price down to $6 and ditch the liner. Overall, another nice one from Hard Candy!

    Hmmm…. you’re right, that brown liner really doesn’t “go” with the coral-ness of that gloss!!! How weird. I have not tried this gloss yet, but I’ve tried the tinted moisturizer, one of the blushes, and a nail color so far. Loved the tinted moisturizer and the nail color; the blush I got was kind of eh… it didn’t really show up on me. I think Hard Candy at Walmart is really fun, but like most drugstore type products it can be hit or miss 🙂

      jen agreed def a hit or miss for me too 😀 so far I’m liking what I tried but def some misses in the mix :-D!!!!!!!!!!!! And totally a strange liner shade!? I’m still thinking WTH!?

  • MissTat

    that’s a very pretty gloss! I haven’t had the chance to try HC yet cause I haven’t seen it at my WalMart (and doubt that it’ll happen anytime soon, sadly)

  • Marilyn

    I don’t think I’d wear the liner either… but the gloss looks gorgeous! I wish it weren’t a click pen applicator…

    • the Muse

      marilyn the stupid lip pencil was a total waste for me 😛

      why dontcha like pen applicators?

  • the Muse

  • Hana

    Oooh, I’m going to have to see what other colors they have. Thanks for the review!

  • Felis

    Wow. That brown liner is an exact dupe for poo. How attractive!

    I love the gloss though. I couldn’t wear it – too orange for me – but I may have to go stock up on some other shades.

    • the Muse

      LOL felis poop indeed :-D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they have quite a few to choose from 😀 good deal for the price but the liner I’d ditch!

    I totally just got this stuff the other day and don’t wanna take it off. I got it in Mauve, and it’s a looooovely nude. Also, the lipliner actually matches. And I’m not one for lipliner usually, except the clear ones on the rare occasion that I wear an actual lipstick. But the pair is gorgeous! I’m a fan.
