Hard Candy launched eight shades of their new Megawatt Smile Lip Color Duo & Brush On Tooth Whitener ($6) for Fall 2012. This beauty budget friendly lip duo contains lipstick on one end and a tooth whitener on the other.
Take a look!
Mmm I’m not really sure if I nesscarily need a tooth whitener on the end of my lipstick but props for the thought Hard Candy? I just can’t picture myself painting on a tooth whitener as part of my touch up regime ya know? Seems a little more work than I’m willing to put in. I barely touch my lipgloss never mind whiten my teeth!
But hey, fun idea…!
This duo has a small twist off tube of whitener with a brush applicator for whitening on the go. I tried it a few times but can’t really say if it’s working as of yet. It has a pleasant minty tastes with a thicker gel consistency that easily brushes on teeth with the included brush applicator.
The lipstick itself has a shimmer core which blue pearls to give teeth a whiter appearance. This core also provides a moisturizing and easy glide on lips. I wouldn’t really call this a lipstick as the formula is more of a balm-like texture which isn’t too heavy and has a very lightweight finish on lips. Color pay off on the one shade I tried was fairly nice (Sorry, I tossed the label by mistake, I believe the color is called Shine On) and the texture provides a nice moisturizing feel with a shiny finish. It has a subtle lemony sugar flavor.
Overall, this isn’t a bad tinted lip balm. It offers moisture, shine, and color with a friendly price tag of merely six dollars. I’m not terribly impressed with the color selection, I think that needs improvement but the formula itself isn’t too bad at all.
If you like moisturizing lip products with a bit of shine and color you should get on perfectly fine with Hard Candy Megawatt Smile Lipstick.
