Hard Candy Megawatt Smile Lipstick Review & Swatches

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.

Tried it?

    This looks awesome, I usually do whiten my teeth but sometimes I feel like they could be a bit brighter, and if there’s no time a touch up would cut it.

    I’ll take a look at the color selection. Is this the only one you have?

  • Ashley

    Thanks for the review! I still do want to try these, I don’t know if I’ll use the teeth whitener though…meh but maybe, once i get past painting somthing on my teeth! lol

  • Quinctia

    I’m most intrigued by the flavor. If I see a shade I like, I might pick it up!

  • Ruth

    maybe they put the minty-toothie thing on the end in case while out you need a tick-tac

    I have to have this. I can see myself becoming obsessive, though. Like, “Hmm…haven’t whitened my teeth in 45 minutes…better go do it!”

    Bought this today! I love it! Shades r natural and I feel that whitener is working !

  • Alice

    I bought a tube of this today, and it’s really nice! I bought a pinkish-red (the color’s called Gleaming), and it looks really good. The whitener seems to be working, and the ‘lipstick’ has a nice, glossy feel without all the stick

    I just bought this in the Shine On color & I love it. I’ve been using the teeth whitener each time right before applying the lipstick & my teeth are a little whiter already. I am a smoker & coffee drinker. I also love the flavored of both the teeth whitener & the lipstick. So many lipsticks taste horrible if you accidentally lick your lips, but this tastes good.
