Hard Candy Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Color - Heather and Buttercup

Mmm... doesn't Velvet Mouse Matte Lip Color just sound like a product you really want to wear?! Yes please, I want my lips velvety smooth and matte!

Hard Candy is a really affordable and exclusively sold at Walmart - don't let that fool you though, they actually have some really great products at a great price point! (I'm still using their peach cushion concealer a few times a week, for over a year!)

*Hard Candy Velvet Matte Mousse ~ $6.00 US/ $7.98 CANJust 1 swipe needed! Full coverage matte liquid lip color (with a vanilla frosting scent!) hydrates lips, offers comfortable wear and delivers bold long-lasting wear.

The packaging of these lipsticks is really sleek and they do smell great! I have the shades Heather (a rosy reddish shade) and buttercup (a light peach pink nude). With the two shades I have, I thought the application was really good - they went on smoothly and were opaque in one coat. 

They were soft and not drying on the lips and left just the slightest tacky feeling, which just reminds you that you are wearing a lipstick without being uncomfortable. I found these wore really well and mine still looked great hours later - the only thing that affected the wear time was a greasy pizza I ate hours in! (And even then, it wore off quite well).

I also love the addition of the packaging tin they come in - they all have different, really pretty designs on it that remind you of the colour inside. But they also have a really good quality mirror on the inside which makes them perfect for throwing in your purse to use later! 

Seriously, for this price to come with this nice of packaging is impressive! I know their metallic lipsticks and lip lacquers come in similar tins as well!

The applicator itself is pretty thin and flat - I prefer a little more shape or thinner tip to help outline and contour my lips well; but, this still worked well and I thought it still did okay at outlining the lips before filling them in.

Buttercup is a peachy pink nude that is a pretty shade - it's not my favorite for my skintone; but, I can see it being a hit with nude lovers! I thought it covered my lips well with one coat and wore well.

Heather is a rosy brick red shade that I found very flattering - this could be the perfect Fall shade for my lips. Again, the formula was comfortable and easy to wear and lasted hours really well on the lips.

If you are looking for a comfortable matte lip formula, I would highly suggest the Hard Candy Velvet Mousse formula! I was really impressed with the formula, wear time and packaging - plus, the price point can't be beat!

  1. These sound nice, I'll have to lookup the shades they have. I find that Buttercup actually looks really good on you.

    1. They have a pretty good shade range! I actually like looking at Buttercup in photos - I think I look weirder in nudes than I actually do maybe?!
