If you caught my post about the Hard Candy Holiday 2011 collections (click here if you missed it), then you know that they're sold exclusively at Walmart and should be hitting stores any minute now (if they're not there already). A little while ago I showed you the $1 mini polishes and today I'd like to show you two of the mini sets:
Hard Candy Limited Edition 5 Piece Eyeliner Set
(retail: $5, 0.02 oz each)
There are four mini eyeliner pencils in this set, including two glitters (teal and purple), one metallic (gold) and one matte (black):
I found all of these pencils to be well-pigmented, creamy and smooth to apply, with the exception of the black liner which, as you can see, was a little waxy and dry.
Next up, the lipglosses:
Hard Candy Limited Edition 4 Piece Lipgloss Set
(retail: $5, 0.04 oz each)
All of these glosses contain iridescent glitter:
The dark pink shade is clearly the most pigmented of them all, while the light pink and medium pink shades are pretty much clear when applied to the skin.
While this is not a formal review (I have not fully tested these products), I thought it might be helpful to swatch these products in case you were thinking about picking some up for yourself or as stocking stuffers this holiday season.
Have you spotted the Hard Candy LE Holiday 2011 sets in your area yet?
