Hello gorgeous ladies,
After being super impressed with many Hard Candy makeup products, today I am going to share another product makeup product from this brand. This is the Hard Candy Glow All The Way Blush in the shade “Honeymoon.” Such an adorable name, isn’t it? I totally adore the dome-shaped packaging of baked makeup products and this baby is no exception. I was so intrigued by this blush that I decided to add it to my makeup stash immediately. Let’s find out if I made the right decision or not.
Baked blush gives your cheeks all over warmth and glow. The ultra-light, micronized pigments are infused with radiance enhancing pearls and blend effortlessly into the skin to enhance skin tone and give you a natural-looking finish.
My Experience with Hard Candy Glow All The Way Blush – Honeymoon:
My most favourite colour is orange, and thanks to my warm complexion with yellow undertones, orange makeup looks the most flattering on me, whether it’s lipstick, blush or eyeshadow. If you notice, the name of this product is quite interesting! It says this product is a blush, but it also says “glow all the way.” So, according to the name, this baked blush from Hard Candy is a glow-y blush!! This intrigued me a lot and I thought I should test it out and see if it works for me. It is claimed to be a blush that provides a hint of color and sheen for glow-y look.
Packaging: The one feature of this product that was calling my name is the packaging of this baby. It comes in a super sturdy and secure compact with a clear lid. Inside the pan, the beautiful blush-cum-highlighter is placed. The shade name and the ingredient list are mentioned in teenie tiny letters at the bottom of the compact. It does not come with a mirror or a brush, but who cares? I don’t use the mirror or brush that come with the products any way.
Color: The blush is a gorgeous orange-y colour blush with a gorgeous bronze-y sheen. The blush-cum-highlighter on its own is a fine-looking bronze shiny shade with a beautiful sheen. The shades when mixed together by swirling the brush around the whole pan, is a stunning mix of orange-toned blush with copper-y highlight for that glow on the face. Overall, the shade of this blush is awesome.
Pigmentation: I would say the pigmentation of the blush is better than average. The products are not fully packed with pigments but still provide a good colour payoff. By the way, no one wants a blush that would make you look like a clown and a highlighter that turns you into a disco ball! So considering that, the pigmentation is good.
Texture: The texture of this blush is extremely soft and smooth. It’s like a buttery finish powder, if you know what I mean. Since it does not have any shimmers in it, the texture is not gritty at all. It offers a beautiful colour and sheen to the face and blends like a dream.
Longevity: The staying power of this product from Hard Candy is average. It does stay on the skin for a good 5 hours, but after that, it starts to fade away like any other powder with a sheen. Since I use it over my blush, it does fade away after a while. But I am not complaining as all products of this texture and consistency will behave the same. Also, it serves my need well, so I am happy.
Quality: The overall quality of this product is pretty darn good. It does what it claims and stands true to them. I like using this product when my face looks dull or on days that no matter what you do, you look like you just woke up – sleepy and tired! It adds back life to the face and makes it glow-y and beautiful. It definitely offers the sun-kissed look that we all yearn for. All in all, I am quite impressed!
