Hard Candy Glossaholic Lipgloss Review & Swatches

I’ve already reviewed hard Candy Glossaholic Lipglosses (click here for the review) but I picked up a few more. Finally located them! Damn, that was hard.

Here’s a few more swatches of the glosses.

I’m really lovin’ these as they fit the beauty budget profile perfectly. If you missed out on MAC Wonder Lipglass these are a great little pick plus two of the shades could be potential low calorie dupes for the shades from the MAC Wonder Woman Collection.

The shades I picked up were:

  • Tipsy (Bubble Gum Pink)
  • Fireball (Fiery Red)
  • Lush (Golden Peach Beige)
  • Fabulous (Dark Brown Red)

The shades are loaded with “flakier” shimmer bits but they have a smooth texture but a subtle color pay off overall. Fireball and Fabulous could prove to be lower calorie versions of the MAC Wonder Glasses in Secret Identity and Wonder Woman.

The larger doe foot applicator is so fabulous as it layers products so well without having to double dip for reapplication.

The glosses are $6 each so they should fit most budgets.

Well worth a pick up in my humblest.

Anyone grab them yet?

    I really *want* to like these but I don’t know if I can get over the giant flecks in them. I didn’t pick up any of the WW glosses, so I would totally love a good dupe.

    • the Muse

      liz completely understandable as they do have really chunky bits of glitter :-D!

    I am going to have to buy one of these…even thought I didn’t like the clear one I am willing to give one of these pigmented ones a shot. Plus they look fun for summer. On an unrelated note, my Tarte order came today!!! YAY. I am loving it so, so, so, so, so, so, so much! The foundation was a touch light, I will switch to the tan for the next shipment and mix the two. Tarte now has my heart. Thank you so much for telling us about it!

    • the Muse

      yay winni!!!!!!!! enjoy your tarte hun, wear in health ;-D! So glad you’re loving it ;-D These HC glosses are def nice for Summer plus oh so cheap!

  • Janet

    I really wanted to get these but it looks like my local Walmart no longer carries Hard Candy.. 🙁

  • Hana

    I got Fireball the other night and am having a lot of trouble with the applicator. XD I keep flinging lip gloss onto my shirts when I pull it out of the tube. Not fun. The gloss itself is pretty nice though and my male best friend was highly amused by the size of the doe foot thing.

    • the Muse

      Hana yeah, at first this wasn’t happening to me but I noticed with these new ones it does indeed ;-D just pull it slowly ;-D

  • Shannon

    i want these in nailpolish form LOL. this is seriously like a lipgloss version of SH Hidden Treasure or something XD

  • Julie

    Musey – FINALLY scored Chill at the empire today…a little blue violet for my taste, but at least my collection is complete! Lush looks so great over any color stain…my fave! xoxo

    • the Muse

      YAY nice girl! ;-D I really adore these, what a great price too ;-D I need Chill too ;D!

  • Ruthless

    I like these, they’re like Nfu-oh “flakie” polishes for lips. And the price is good

  • Jennifer

    I have 4 so far and will be getting more. I bought both clear ones as I couldn’t decide wether I wanted purple or pink glitter and well, since pink and purple lipsticks are 2 of my favorite shades I got both. I also got fireball and lush. P.S. Fireball is a great dupe of Mac superglass in cherry electric, just a tad more red. Lush is a great dupe for Mac superglass in disco blend just without the browny undertones of disco blend.

    • the Muse

      brilliant jennifer ;-D I got a few more too and really enjoy them. Oh gosh that’s ok don’t go crazy as I have swatches already up of the superglasses anyway so folks can refer back to that post ;D!

  • Cas

    Im am super obsessed with Hard Candy right now, and I just made a pull to get two more different colors after I originally got Fireball. I love these so much, they make some of the more expensive lipglosses look like a ripoff.. thanks for the review 🙂

    I just want to start by saying that this is just constructive criticism and not meant to be mean or anything. I really like your blog, but I often get confused because you don’t write the names of shades under the individual photos of each shade. I know you do list the shades, and in this case, it’s clear which is which, but sometimes it’s not. I’ve thought about this when seeing your blog at least 10 times, so I thought it was time I mentioned it. Thank you.
