Review: Glossaholic Lip Gloss and Megawatt Smile Lipstick by Hard Candy
28 Oct 2012
Today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on new Hard Candy makeup. Hardy Candy has recently come out with new products for fall/winter, which are available at Walmart. I have a couple of the new products and for the past couple of weeks I’ve been playing around with them. I’ve been really liking their Glossaholic Lip Gloss and the Megawatt Smile Lipstick + Tooth Whitener. Below are my thoughts and some swatches.
The Glossaholic Lip Gloss is huge! It has 0.38 oz. (10.8 g), which is a lot bigger than let’s say a regular MAC lipgloss. It has a doe foot applicator, which is enormous too: the applicator covers your lips in one swipe. I have this gloss in the color Creamsicle, which is a pretty coral color. It is a very shiny, sparkly gloss, but it does not have chunky bits of glitter.
On the website I read that it’s infused with prisms of color that make lips appear fuller and plumper. I’m not sure about that, but it does make your lips tingle a little it. What I like most (really, really like!) is the scent. The Glossaholic Lip Gloss smells SO good! It’s smells like vanilla, just like MAC glosses, but a lot stronger. I love it!
I’ve been wearing this color on its own, but also on top of the Megawatt Smile Lipstick. This is called a lipstick, but I think it’s more a lip balm. It doesn’t have a lot of pigment, but it is very moisturizing and very creamy. I have it in the color Shine On, a soft pink. The center of the lipstick is shimmery. However, overall it’s not a shimmery color, it has a nice, subtle shimmer to it. The lip gloss and the lipstick compliment each other very well.
On the other side of the lipstick there is a brush with a tooth whitener (a gel). I can’t say much about this whitener, because I haven’t used it (yet).
Below are the swatches of both colors.

I’m definitely planning on getting another Glossaholic Lip Gloss, most likely one in a mauve/pink color. I just love the way these smell and the price isn’t bad either! The Glossaholic Lip Gloss retails for $5 and the Megawatt Smile Lipstick is $6. Both available at Walmart and on Walmart.com
