hard candy lipstick review

The metallic lip trend continues to make its way around beauty blogs, YouTube and social media. Hard Candy has jumped on the bandwagon with their new Metallic Mousse lipsticks ($6US / $7.99CAN). These are soft, true matte metallic liquid lipsticks that have a dulled shine. They come in a range of pretty colors and they are very comfortable to wear.

The shade I tried is 1052 Show Off a blue-toned red with silver sparkles. This is quite a sheer lipstick but builds up nicely to a nice translucent red. The other shade I tried is 1050 Provocative a cool-tone Barbie pink with silver sparkles. It is more shear than Show Off but still buildable to a nice even coverage.

This lipstick is creamy feeling and the colour is really pretty. I didn’t find it to be as long wearing as the other two because it gets kind of smudgey after a while, especially the centre pink stripe. The packaging is a weird rectangular twist up tube that is more base than product.

The last product I’m going to review is the Hard Candy Glitteratzi Press + Play lipsticks ($5.99US / $6.99CAN). They are billed as a matte lip color that transforms into a glitter finish when you press your lips together. It’s kind of like the Ciate Glitter Flips, but a bit more matte when you first apply it. The glitter shows up well and the lipsticks are hydrating when applied.
