Spotted: NEW Hard Candy Products for Eyes, Lips and Face (With Reader Swatches)

If you haven't heard, Hard Candy has just added some new, permanent products to their lineup at Walmart! I have the scoop for you today (with some swatches, even!) thanks to some lovely readers. So let's jump right in.

First up, thanks to longtime reader Lisa of Swatchesandwhatnot blog for the heads-up that the new Fiberized Brow Gel I posted about a little while ago is now in stores. She just spotted these at her local Walmart the other day and kindly shared this pic:

  3. So does this mean there will be some discontinued products to make room for these new ones?

  4. I found Birthday Suit in my local Walmart this week sitting on the shelf. The exciting thing? It's ALL MATTE!~

  5. I got one of the serum lipsticks tonight. I believe the shade was called Victorious. It was a little brighter than I expected, but it felt nice and was quite opaque. I want to test it more though, because it seemed like it was sliding around on my lips more than most lip products do...

  8. I really want to try out those fiberized brow gels. I wonder how they would compare to Benefit Gimme Brow? I hope the Medium Dark works out for me :( It looks too light.

    1. Hi Miss, I would say go for it! I have brows black as coal and the Med/Dk works fine for me. I just picked this up last weekend and love it so far, like MBBB (my brows but better) not too dramatic but polished and just right. I've been using the Benefit Gimme Brow on my mom for months now and the HC version is pretty much no different...just that you get the highlight crayon with the HC. My mom has barely there brows and this type of formula really helps give you brow while looking more like actual hairs. :)

  9. I picked up the matte palette and the brow gel. I haven't worn the palette yet but it looks promising based on swatches, the shadows are smooth and creamy with buildable pigmentation. I actually prefer to build a bit with crease/transition colors anyhow.

    The brow gel was great at first, I have decent brows but they are very light so a colored gel is a necessity. It went on very nice and not only colored the hair but filled in bare spots as well.. I'm pretty much missing the tail on one and it did a great job of faking it. It also didn't make my brows crunchy. Looked very natural and had a different tone on the hair than the skin. However it didn't last, after five hours of doing basically nothing around the house it had faded terribly. The highlighter was basically useless, it's so creamy and lightly pigmented that you almost couldn't tell it was there and it wore off as well. I was very bummed because I really liked it when first applied and it was super fast to do. Another thing to be aware of is the color.. I got the one in med/dark and while the tube looks brown the product is extremely cool toned.. I would say it's actually a slate grey. I'm going to return it and stick with my Revlon Brow Fantasy.. it's true to color and lasts until I take it off no matter what.

  10. I got the lipstick in idolized like she did and I like it! It's a very creamy formula. Not super pigmented but nice!! I plan to pick up more!
