Enjoy the Metallic Trend with Hard Candy Sweet as Honey and Smoke and Mirrors


If you’ve been to the beauty section of Walmart, I’m sure you’ve seen the adorable tins of Hard Candy liquid lipsticks. I just had to try the formula on these, especially for that tin! I was excited to see that they had jumped on board with the metallic liquid lipstick trend like a lot of companies drugstore and beyond, so I grabbed two to try and test the formula. 

The two I bought were:

  • Hard Candy Sweet as Honey
  • Hard Candy Smoke and Mirrors

Sweet as Honey is a gorgeous bronze mousse formula. It is somewhat sheer (what I show you is one swipe) but can be built up. The color is pretty opaque on its own, but it can easily be a lip topper, if you wanted!

Smoke and Mirrors is a really unique metallic. It’s a cool purple and again can be worn alone or on top of another lip color. I love it on its own, as it gives off an air of mystery.

The verdict is that for $6, these are really lovely! They do dry down to a matte finish but are not exactly transfer-proof. I love the range of colors, and I will be buying them again. They come with tins, so the price is pretty justified. I will definitely grab some more colors and keep all of you posted! 

What do you think of these two?
