Hard Candy Glossaholic review
From reviews I've read, Hard Candy seems to be pretty hit-and-miss with their product line. I can't say myself, since aside from these glosses I've only tried the primer, and I don't see much else from the line that seems too exciting. That being said, I do really like these glosses. They cost $5 and are only available at your local evil empire, Walmart. They have a REALLY strong vanilla-frosting scent to them, which I don't like, but luckily it doesn't stay long. They also sport a giant applicator, which I didn't like at first, but now I do- it has kind of a dip in it, so it can get a lot of gloss in one go, and cover your lips in one go too. It's the same size as the gigantor MAC Wonderwoman glosses- here's a size comparison. Hard Candy, MAC Wonderwoman, Rimmel. I have 3 different colors- Fairy, Tipsy, and Chill Out. Tipsy is a sheer hot pick, and Fairy and Chill Out both show up mostly clear. I love these glosses because they have FLAKIES! Much like my favorite lip gloss of all time, the MAC Superglass (of which I only own one). You can click on the pictures to see them full size so the flakies are much more visible. I just think it looks so cool, I love wearing these with a neutral eye, layered over lipstick, to give my look something more interesting. These glosses are really sticky, which I normally don't like, but I can deal with it for these because they're so gorgeous. Do you have any of these Hard Candy glosses, or tried any others from the line? Do you have any of the coveted MAC Superglass?
