sweet like candy to my soul.


Despite the amount of makeup reviews on this blog, I've actually been forcing myself to cut back on my makeup buying habits. They may be slightly out of control! So, I'm trying to use what I've got. Okay, minus this new Hard Candy trio that I bought.....oops?

When it comes to glowy bronzers and blush shades, no one does it quite like Hard Candy. Their prices are super affordable and the products look stunning! In the past, I've added a few blushes and bronzers into my collection that I just love. As for their other products - like eyeshadow shades and liners, it's a hit or miss. But face products are a total win.

So, I picked up this trio. I actually already have one of the other trios in my makeup collection. It's got a highlight, a light bronze shade, and a deeper bronzey shade. This one is a little bit different. It's got a bolder highlight shade, a very light bronzer, and a soft coral blush shade. What drew me to it was the blush shade. It looked so beautiful! Glowy, feminine, and a totally gorgeous summer shade.


The standouts from this trio? Definitely the highlight and the blush shade. The bronzer is pretty - it's just very very light. It doesn't do a ton for my skin and I am super pale! On the other hand, the highlight totally stands out. It's gorgeous! It is a great way to add some pretty shimmer to your face and highlight the top of your cheekbones. It's super pretty! And that blush shade....amazing. As you know, I am a total blush addict, but this one is really wearable and looks great. It gives a subtle wash of colour.

Take a look at the swatches and let me know what you think!


Hard Candy is a drugstore brand that I love....and this highlight/bronzer/blush trio is one of the reasons why! Quality product, creamy texture, and gorgeous colours. What more do you need?

Are you a fan of Hard Candy? What do you think of this trio?
