Hard Candy Cashmere Silk Demi-Matte Creme Lip Colour Review & Swatches

I purchased this item and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post.

Hard Candy Cashmere Silk Demi-Matte Creme Lip Colour ($6) is a new a hybrid lipstick, lip cream, lipgloss that launched six shades for Spring 2018. Do yourself a favor and just throw $36 at Walmart and buy all of these. Every one of them. Pass go, collect $200, and grab all the Hard Candy Cashmere Silk Demi-Matte Creme Lip Colours.

You can thank me later.

Hard Candy Cashmere Silk Demi-Matte Creme Lip Colour are probably some of the best nude lip colors of my life and by the very way the formula isn’t too shabby either. These are the shades of my nude lip color dreams. Every single one of the four I purchased was perfect for my skin tone. I think the colors should be flattering across a wide variety of skin tones which is difficult to achieve when it comes to nude lip colors. My Walmart was missing two of the four shades but don’t worry, I will be grabbing those ASAP. In fact, I plan on purchasing a complete set because I need backups of the shades. They are that gorgeous.

These arrive in the same flat barrel as Hard Candy Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Color and Hard Candy Wet Ever Bold Hold Lip Lacquer but unlike those products these do not come in the cute tins, they come in a nude box which you can toss out. They hold 0.22 oz of lip color.

As I said the formula isn’t too shabby either! I wouldn’t say these are Demi-Matte which I’m perfect fine with as I’m done with mattes. This is a thin yet creamy formula that has the texture of a lipgloss and the pigment of a liquid lipstick. The consistency reminds me of a slippery melted down balm and its almost as if the formula had a built in primer since it applies so smooth and even on my drier lips. I thought it felt very comfortable and hydrating on my lips and had a very, very subtle citrus-y flavor but no scent that I detected. There was no tacky or sticky feel to this just a comfortable creamy texture that felt quite moisturizing. The pigment is excellent! A single layer provides opaque color which lasts for a good four hours.

I can’t rave these enough! They are amazing, excellent, wonderful! Truly a great lip product. Hard Candy continues to produce some very high quality products which each seasonal release they do.

I hope that Hard Candy Cashmere Silk Demi-Matte Creme Lip Colour sticks around for a long time because these are just so flattering.

    Are they kind of like VLGs, which I adore? You’re so right; these all look terrific on you. But you’re one of THOSE, that most colors look fab on!

  • Kimmwc03

    Oh…I need to check these out tonight.

    They all look pretty on you.

  • Mandy

    Every time I go to Walmart, I have been eyeing these an I always talk myself out of it. Now I’m going to have to buy some. LOL

  • Dee

    I love all of these on you , especially the first one! I am heading to Walmart tomorrow to see if these are in stock. I don’t like matte lip products but these look awesome.

    • Isabella Muse

      Thank you! Get them! They are fab! Honestly, not matte at all!

  • Tracy

    I read this post yesterday afternoon and last night I was at Walmart anyway so I decided to pick up a few (Gelato, Tartufo, and Macaron). I’ve only tried Gelato so far but you were SO RIGHT on these!!! Wow! Going by how they looked in the tube I was skeptical but the formula really is just lovely. Thanks for the rec on these!

    • Isabella Muse

      I was worried they’d be a dry, gross matte! I am SO glad you liked them as much as I do ;-D

  • Linda Whitener

    OK, I’m off to Walmart! You’re pretty persuasive, Muse – I thought Lipstick Queen’s Jean Queen was the only MLBB I’d ever need, but you’ve convinced me to try these. 😉

  • Linda

    Thanks for this review! Just bought Creme Brûlée and Macaron. Good shine without the stickiness. Have tried Macaron only, so far. It is one of those wonderful shades that make my teeth look whiter.

    I had just finished shopping in Walmart tonight and was out in the parking lot looking through notifications on my phone before I went home. I read this review, immediately got out of the car, went back inside, and picked up one of these in Gelato. Lol
    Hey, at least I didn’t grab all six. :p
    (I almost grabbed Macaron as well, though. Soon, Macaron. Soon.)

    • Isabella Muse

      ha that’s awesome! I hope hope you love the shade you got 🙂

  • Millie

    I got convinced by your intro paragraph…. must go to Walmart this weekend!! …and hope the Canadian Walmarts have it

    Muse these seem to be a dupe of the Buxom lip creams. Swatched them at Ulta today and they appear very similar.

    • Isabella Muse

      They felt much lighter to me than the Buxom ones and also, quite a bit more hydrating 🙂

  • Sara

    I picked one up tonight and LOVE it! I’ll definitely be grabbing more. Thank you for letting us all know!

  • Sara

    I’m so sad! I LOVE these. They are discontinuing these. They didn’t have any left at my Walmart, they are in the “going away” section of Hard Candy’s site. They are $3 on, but there aren’t very many colors left.
    I just ordered from Hard Candy with free shipping code ships4free.

    Why they gotta do this to me?

    • Isabella Muse

      NO!!!!!!!!! omg how horrible! I love them! I’m glad I got two sets! I purchased some for the blog but ended up purchasing an entire set within a week or two of my original purchase because I loved them so much!
