Hard Candy Pinky Swear Plumping Serum Volumizing Lip Gloss Review

Skin/Hair Type: Oily and occasionally acne-prone/Normal Hair

Hello gorgeous ladies,

I have been quite impressed by the Hard Candy Plumping Serum Volumizing Lip Glosses so far, but now I have come across a gloss from this range which is a total dud!! I am talking about the shade “Pinky Swear.” Let’s have a look.

My Experience with Hard Candy Pinky Swear Plumping Serum Volumizing Lip Gloss:

Packaging: This lip gloss comes in a cylindrical, long, clear plastic tube with a glossy metallic silver cap with black fancy details, it does look quite stylish. The clear body of the tube makes the shade visible through it, making it easy to identify in the makeup stash. The packaging is a bit bulky, travel friendly yet sturdy. The doe-foot applicator is a sponge-tip that is slightly slanted, providing ease of application. One dip does not really pick up enough product, so for full coverage, I need to dip the wand in two to three times into the lip gloss tube.

Color: The shade “Pinky Swear” is a blue-toned milky pink gloss that does not have any shimmer in it. I really do not know who can pull off such a shade. I don’t think it suits me at all, completely washes me out. It looks so gorgeous in the packaging, but on the lips, it’s just terrible!! This lip gloss cannot be worn on its own. It should be paired with a lip pencil or lipstick to add shine to your pout.

Pigmentation: This is sure not one of the most pigmented glosses out there, but sure adds a fair amount of color and shine when worn on its own which is not flattering by any means. When worn over a lip pencil, it makes the lips look fuller and plumper.

Texture: The texture of this gloss is super glossy and more like a thick syrup. It is pretty light in texture and does not feel super sticky. It has the correct amount of stickiness for it to last a bit long on the lips and yet not irritate them. This lip gloss is truly plumping. It does have that slight stinging and tingling sensation post which, the lips do get plumped a bit to give a beautiful fuller look. It is creamy and quite moisturizing and even if you have extremely dry lips, you need not apply any lip balm underneath. The only drawback is that, this gloss slides away from the lips and settles into the fine lines.

Longevity: The staying power of this lip gloss is average. It adheres to the lips and stays put for a good 3-4 hours. Since it is a gloss, it does transfer a bit and loses its shine with some snacking. Overall, I would not complain about this feature considering this is a creamy lip gloss.
