Christmas is almost here and if you’re like me, you’re just finishing up your holiday shopping. If you’re looking into some inexpensive stocking stuffers or just need a small item to finish off your list, Hard Candy has you covered. I’ll show you some of the items I got sent from their holiday collection! I haven’t tried a lot of these (since I actually plan to give them away to friends and family as well), but hope they give you some ideas for your shopping list.
One of the most wholesome sets I’ve seen is the Hard Candy All Lit Up Complete Collection ($19.97 CAD). It contains an eye primer, face primer, setting spray, contouring collection, eye shadow palette, and blush and bronzer. Everything you need to create a look, all you need is foundation and you’re set!
Another super fun idea to bring to a holiday party with your friends is the Hard Candy Holiday Crackers Collection ($14.97 CAD). I’m surprised I don’t see other makeup brands doing it as everyone seems to love Advent Calendars. I’ll actually be bringing these to a holiday party today for people to try out!
A Bath Set For Momma
Another concept I haven’t seen too much are these Hard Candy Bath Oil Trio ($3 CAD). Each heart contains a fun scented oil to put in your bath tub. They are housed in these cute soft plastic containers, similar to a floatie toy. A great stocking stuffer for give mom some well deserved R&R.
Lip Kit and Brow Kit
Hard Candy has a couple of kits available at inexpensive prices. The Hard Candy So Kissable Lip Collection ($4.97 CAD) contains a variety of different lip finishes, with 2 Wet Ever, 2 Velvet Mousse, and 2 Metallic Mousse. I’ve only tried the Wet Ever lipsticks and they are a pretty potent liquid lipstick. Definitely a lot of pigmentation, but can run a bit sticky and messy. I like how they included the Metallic Mousse lipsticks, seems definitely holiday appropriate!
The Hard Candy Brows Now Kit ($4.97 CAD) looks like a great package to both shape, fill, and lock in your brows. I like that this contains a pair of tweezers and a mini brush, so you ‘re ready for on the go brow action!
For the Try Girl
The Hard Candy Glossing All the Way Kit ($9.97 CAD) contains 20 mini liquid lipsticks all in different finishes and formulations. You’ll definitely be kept busy with this set, being able to try a different liquid lipstick for almost a month!
For the Youngin’
So the definition of a ‘youngin’ is definitely debatable, but I’m more so thinking a pre-teen who don’t have much experience with makeup. I think it’s a bit of a catch twenty-two because it’s worth it to just buy a really good quality palette, but at the same time, if you just want to practice technique or for fun, cheaper makeup might be ideal.
The Hard Candy ‘Course’ Nail Polish ($1.47 CAD) is definitely a colour that would work for someone young and just getting started with makeup! The glitter pink is definitely fun!
The Hard Candy Fierece Effects Lip Kit ($3 CAD) contains a dual ended matte and glossy lipstick pencil along with a lip liner. The actual metal tin is pretty cute. For $3, definitely worth just playing around!
The Hard Candy Mini Top 10 Eyeshadow Palette ($1.47 CAD) is a fun little palette full of glitter shades. This one definitely has a bit of an edgy feel with the smoky colours and studs on the outside of the palette.
And there we have some of the Hard Candy holiday collection! Thanks so much for reading! Have a great day!
