Hard Candy haul

As soon as I heard about Hard Candy new products making appearance at Walmart, I had to go get a few. We Canadians have been waiting so long for them.

My first attention went to the Fox In a Box first. Here’s how they look in the original plastic cases with the lids popped open, CAD5.98 each:
Skinny Dipping bronzing duo – with coral and brown tone, and
Hot Flash blushing quad – with red tone.

Pictures were taken with flash, so the colours are washed out a bit. The second picture below is closer to the shades IRL.

There are another bronzing duo with pink and brown called Truth or Dare, and 2 more blushing quads with pink tone (Spicy and Sweet) and brown tone (Smooth Talker), if you are wondering.

Despite how crazy the colours look in the packaging, they are supposed to be sheer and buildable. They do have shimmers but not glitters.

Dupe of Benefit blush boxes or not, these Foxes in a Box are fabulous for the money. I have seen enough rave reviews to just go and grab a few. Hopefully they work well on my skin tone.

With the lids closed, they are pretty little boxes. I love the printed patterns on the top, and the colour themes throughout the boxes. However, they are cardboard, and therefore not very sturdy. Just a note if you want to carry them around in your purse.

One of the boxes didn’t close perfectly and tore off a bit at the fold when I tried to push the lid down, which made me sad.

There is 5.7g/ 0.20oz of product in the box, would last me quite a long time.

Some more products I picked up:
Glamoflauge Heavy duty concealer with concealer pencil, CAD5.98
Undercover Agent Undereye brightener and concealer duo, CAD5.98
Sheer Envy primer – Skin perfecting ultra light formula, CAD7.98.

The primer is not new but I waited to almost finish the one I’m using before picking it up. This one came with a box, but others on the display didn’t have one, just plain tubes. I’m wondering what’s going on with that.

Based on what I heard on twitter, not all Walmarts have brought out the new stock, so keep checking at yours, they should show up soon.
