Hard Candy Glitteratzi and Plumping Serum

[maxbutton id=”2″ ]


Hard Candy is a drugstore favorite here on Prime Beauty Blog. It’s hard not to love this affordable, bold, cruelty-free brand. Whenever I get a Hard Candy package, I can’t wait to open it up and give the new products a try.  Just in time for National Lipstick Day, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on their Glitteratzi Liquid Sparkler, $6, and expanded Lip Serum shade range, $6.

Hard Candy Glitteratzi

Glitter is all the rage these days, and not just for kid’s art projects. Even as a 40-something I like adding some sparkle to my lips and eyes. With the new Glitteratzi Liquid Sparkler, I can “make it rain glitter” everywhere.

Available in seven shades, the Hard Candy Glitteratzi collection offers both subtle and bold glitter options. I tried three shades from the line, Aurora (white with pink, purple and blue glitter), Twinkle (pink with silver glitter/shift), and Galactic (aquamarine with blue and silver glitter).

What I like most about Glitteratzi is their versatility. You can sheer them out for a subtle glow or build them up for a more intense sparkle. I like to mix them with lipstick or lip gloss for that metallic look.

They also work great with multiple eye looks. Sometimes I will swipe on one coat of Aurora or Twinkle to brighten up my eyes on no makeup or light makeup days. Other times I will add a couple of coats of Galactic to intensify a shimmery eye look. I’ve also used the Glitteratzi to change a matte look to shimmer.

I do recommend using an eye primer or glitter glue to help Glitteratzi adhere better, especially if you have hooded eyes. It helps prevent some transfer and improve wear time. I did have some issues with both, but it was only noticeable very close-up or when my eyes were closed.

Plumping Serum – New Shades

Hard Candy Plumping Serum

I love the look of glossy lips. I also love the way gloss feels on my lips. The more hydrating the better. This is exactly what you’ll get from the Hard Candy Plumping Serum. Formulated with fruit extracts and hyaluronic acid, these volumizing lip glosses help hydrate lips and minimize the appearance of fine lines.

Recently, Hard Candy added twelve new shades to the Plumping Serum range. There are pinks, reds and purples in sheer and full-color options. I tried out Dirty Mind, a rich purple, and Skin Deep, a rich maroon. Both colors can be worn sheer or built up for a more intense color payoff. You can also pair over lipsticks as well.

The formula is very comfortable and hydrating on the lips. Of course as a gloss, it’s not long wearing. However, my lips remained hydrated long after the gloss wore off, which is always a win for me. I can’t say I noticed a massive plumping effect, but my lips do look smoother when I wear the Plumping Serum.

After trying out the new Hard Candy Glitteratzi and Plumping Serum expanded shades, I would recommend visiting your local Walmart to pick some up. Glitteratzi is a fun, affordable way to add subtle and vibrant glitter to your lips, eyes, or face. With over 20 shades to choose from, the Plumping Serum is an affordable go-to gloss for adding shine, hydration, and volume to any lip look.
