Hard Candy has been around since I was a teenager. I can remember using their cosmetics growing up through the years. I am always searching for great cosmetics to share with all of you that not only are great in quality but affordable as well. I had the wonderful opportunity to try the  2014 Spring Collection of Hard Candy products so let’s take a look at them.

A skin enhancing formula that helps minimize dark circles, age spots, freckles and uneven skin tone. Apply this before using any foundation or powder. 


On the left is a picture of the side of my face before using the correcting cream. The right side is after I used the correcting cream. As you can see it has diminished the age spots and evened my skin tone. The Sheer Envy Dark Spot Correcting cream is very light and non-greasy formula. In addition, you do not need to use a lot of it as it spreads very well. In fact, less is more!

Lightweight , shine reducing formula that prevents oil buildup while creating a smooth surface for even makeup application. 



I found that this product is really nice and gives my skin a smooth matte finish. At first I did not know how I liked it as the consistency feels a little waxy when you squeeze it out. Once you start applying it you will notice it spreads very well, and once blended over your face it does not feel waxy at all. Using the combination of both products will give your skin a flawless finish. I love both products and highly recommend them.

With this multi-color eyeshadow you can create multiple looks. You can use one color or all 3 combined. It is hard to capture with the camera but it is green, dark blue, and light blue in this eyeshadow compact.  Hard Candy has many multi-colored compacts available in shades Low Rise Jeans, Oink, Sandy Beach, Sweet Sorbet, Grape Dane and World Peace.

Applying the eyeshadow was very easy. If you take your eyeshadow brush you can gently adhere one color to your brush. You can also sweep your eyeshadow brush across the colors where you can adhere all three colors to create a more drastic look. I used eye primer with this eyeshadow. Eye primer will make it more vibrant and help keep your eyeshadow on for longer. I also used some yellow in the corner of my eye to make it bolder.


The Single & Loving it color I received is Oink.  I was able to create a look using all three colors. In addition, I used purple eyeliner, purple mascara and a pink shadow liner on the bottom of my eye. I also used the pink eyeshadow swept across the bottom to give it an electrifying look. There is endless combinations you can create with this eyeshadow.  I love both eyeshadow compacts and recommend you try them. You can find them sold exclusively at Walmart for only $3.00!



Glamoflauge Lite Concealer Duo

The Glamoflauge Concealer Duo helps cover blemishes, scars and many other imperfections. The blendable two sided concealer comes with two different colored tips which allows you to achieve the perfect skin tone match. Using the tip with the darker color first and then use the lighter color on top will help conceal any dark circles or imperfections you have. The concealer is creamy and very easy to blend. This product is great to stick in your makeup bag when you need a quick touch on the go.  You can find this exclusively at Walmart for only $6.00



Glossaholic Holographic 3D Lip Gloss 

Glossaholic Holographic 3D Lip Gloss will cover your lips with just one swipe. Using the mega applicator it makes it easy to apply without having to dip and apply again. The hyper-reflective prisms of pearl will make your lips shimmer and look radiant. In addition, the color transitioning formula creates a 3D effect that will leave your lips looking fuller and succulent.



The lip gloss in shade Pink Prism is very high shine and easy to apply. I do not find it overly sticky but I find the taste to be sweet like syrup or sugar substance. I think this product would go over very well with teenage girls. My daughter spotted it right away and decided to try it. In fact, she claimed it and said it was hers when I was done with my review! You can use this lip gloss over lipstick or alone. I am not fond of the packaging as it springs out quickly when you unscrew the top.  In turn, it can make a very big mess if you take it out quickly.  In addition, when I put the lip gloss down to take the above picture I noticed some of it spilled out.

My verdict

Overall, I am happy with Hard Candy and think that the product stands up to great quality. I definitely will buy their products in the future and buy them for my daughter as well. They have lots of products that you can check out on their website and they are exclusively sold at Walmart
