Hard Candy Mini Haul + New Products| Review & Swatches


 I’ve been wanting to purchase a liquid illuminator to mix with foundations and found this one from Hard Candy. I love their wide range of products and cute packaging and they have come out some amazing products like the Glamoflauge concealer, primers, and their eye palettes in the tins. They have also come out with some new products (pictures from display below). 

 ▫️Sheer Glow All The Way ‘In The Buff’ ($8, 2.7 fl oz.)

This is one of the the 2 new liquid illuminators in the Glow collection. These are sheer and have a thin, cream consistency. There is slight shimmer in it that does not come through on the skin but comes out as a pretty glow. It also blends very seamlessly into the skin. 

Application: I used this in 2 ways, patted in the highlight area and then applying my foundation around it. This gives a subtle highlighting effect. Topped with powder highlight gives it an even stronger highlighted look. Or, you can mix this in with your foundation-I really loved how my foundation looked this way. There was a beautiful glow to my face that lasted all day.  

Hard Candy website:

Glow All the Way with this pearly, luminizing highlighters that illuminate any skin tone. Infused with 24-karat gold for a million dollar look! Also available in two shades of tinted sunless tanners to instantly bronze and build a lasting tan.

Here is a super blurry picture of the Sheer Glow in ‘Blushing Babe’. It seemed to me more glittery and definitely for lighter skin tones. 

▫️Bold & Gorgeous Felt Tip Liner ($5)

I was really interested in trying this unique liner. The triple ball tip is very interesting and is supposed to hold more liquid than a regular one. It’s soft and the pointed tip makes it easy to draw a line. I actually had a hard time taking off the swatch, there was no smearing once it dries and became waterproof. I also really love the cute packaging.  

Hard Candy website:

Features triple black formula that lasts up to 12 hours for smudge-proof, budge-proof all-day wear. The short, thick design allows for smooth application, optimum control and zero skip. The innovative triple ball tip holds 3x the color for a dramatic, bold effect.

Rest of new products:  

 Not pictured is 2 glitter eye palettes and a makeup remover pen which I really wanted but they didn’t have! 

 There is also a bunch of new shades of the Glamoflauge concealer which is awesome because they only had 3 before! There are also some new lipstick shades. I guess they came out with a different design of their eye palettes. The center one was the original packaging, but the new ones feel lighter and cheaper and I just don’t like this packaging
