The Hard Candy Mad for Mod Collection for Fall 2013 offers up a lovely selection of color for the crisp weather! Below are just a few selections from the new line.
Pink Interlude Mod Quad Eye Shadow Palette ($6.00) – These baked shadows are said to be able to be applied wet or dry, but I get almost no pigment from this particular quad in dry form, but when used wet they shine with metallic pigment.
Hard Candy & Mistress Plumping Serum ($6.00) Hard Candy is a sheer, bright pink while Mistress is a sheer candy apple red. You’ll feel an immediate yet slight tingle to the lips and then it’s gone, replaced by a cooling sensation. I’m not sure if these definitely “plump” but the sheer gloss does give off a plumping effect. On the sticky scale they’re about at a 4.
Violets & Roses Poppin’ Pigments Loose Eyeshadow ($6.00) These can be used wet or dry, below they are swatched dry over no primer. There is a small sifter at the top which makes getting product a little messy. Violets & Roses will be particularly lovely on cool toned beauties.
Innocent Shadow Dancers Liquid to Powder Eyeshadow ($6.00) This is an icy duo of a frosty pink and white. A small dab will do ya and they set quickly, so make sure you smooth out asap.
Hard Candy All Lid Up Créme Eye Shadow ($6.00) is new for Spring 2013 and comes available in 10 shades. The focus of this post will be on Stepping Stones, which is a versatile shade that can be used with many looks from day to night.
(swatched above with no primer, one finger swipe of color)
Stepping Stones might look like your average metallic grey in the pot… but sweet heaven there’s gold in them there shadows, giving this shade a slightly khaki vibe! Are you as shocked as I am over how this shade swatches?! Wooooo!
With this product, finger application is easiest for quick blending. Stepping Stones goes on creamy and sets quickly. This wore well and all day without creasing when blended out and also when I put shadows over-top. If you just pack them on or don’t set with a shadow they’ll crease more quickly.
Recently landing at Walmart and ready to make your pout appear plump? Hard Candy Lip Def Lip Lacquer! Available in 10 shades at $6.00 each, this post will focus on 595 Madison Ave.
Madison Ave is a golden bronze shimmer gloss that applies a lot more sheerly on the lips than it looks in the tube or the arm swatch (so be not afraid!).
I was actually pleasantly surprised with the formula. It had an excellent sheen, didn’t feel gritty and also wasn’t very sticky. The slight golden shimmer gave just a touch of color to my lips and also made them appear a little more full.
The Hard Candy collection is exclusively available at Walmart and on walmart.com.
