This appears to be Hard Candy's answer to Benefit's Box O' Powder line. I've never tried Benefit's version so I can't compare the two side-by-side. I have tried Fox in a Box, however, and Spicy & Sweet would be some serious competition for them. The four shades are gorgeous--I prefer the pinks over the bronzes, so I either use the pinks straight up, pinks blended together, or pinks and bronzes blended. The colors are very pigmented with good payout, not chalky in the least. This does mean they can easily be applied too strong, especially on lighter skin tones...so start off with a light hand and build the color up as you need to. The brush that it comes with isn't very high quality, however, so I substitute my own blush brush. But that's not something worth deducting any points on, IMO.
Overall this is an excellent buy.
A gem of a blusher palette. The lower 2 pink colors are my favorites. They last longer than most powder blushes. I do not like the cardboard box but the actual product is top notch. A well used favorite of mine minus the childish package.
I love this blush. The packaging is cute (like benefit's boxed powders) and they're under $6. The brush they come with is useless, but so are most that come with makeup. I like this because there's 4 different colours in it, so I can either use it for a peachy pink blush or a cool toned blush. I have another one of these and it broke, but I haven't had the same problem with this one
I am in love with this blush! A friend of mine gave this to me because it was too dark for her porcelain complexion and would perhaps suit my NC25 a bit better. I've never really tried Hard Candy blushes, but this one did not disappoint at all! To be honest, I wouldn't have picked this color out myself because it looks so bright/dark in the pan. However, I find that a few light swipes of this gives a gorgeous flush! I do notice a little bit of shimmer in the pan, but it's so finely milled I can barely detect in on my face. I don't use the brush that came with it, but instead I use my fluffy ELF Complexion Brush from their Studio Line. The brush is kind of a struggle to fit in the box since its so big. I noticed this stuff is such a fine powder it's not difficult to have lots of excess accumulate around the edges of the pan. I also have to be careful to make sure I shake all the excess product off before applying - or else I look like a feverish clown. This stuff is great quality and I definitely look forward to seeing what else Hard Candy has to offer! Will definitely repurchase.
I am in love with this blush. I first purchased this because my friend recommended it to me. It was around 5 or 6 dollars (not sure, so don't quote me on this!) at Walmart. Before I tried this, I was a little skeptical because of its low price. But after a year of using this blush, it has been my favorite. I like it more than my Mac, nars, benefit, and stila blushes. I think it compares to the benefit box blushes. Check out my blog for full reviews on products! www.misslipglossbeauty.blogspot.com
I am obsessed with this blush. I have tons of NARS, TheBalm, ELF & Benefit Box o' Powders, and I still keep coming back to this one. I love the color payoff and lasting power. This blush gives a gorgeous flush of peachy/pink color, and it even has a subtle sheen to it. If these are really going to be discontinued like people are saying, I'm going to need to run out and buy a couple more! Hot flash is also a nice color.
Packaging is rubbish. It's like a cheap version of Benefit blushers. Other than that, the blush itself is a bit too dark and too obvious for me. I prefer the natural flush of colour but this will do well for night time.
LOVE THIS. I have a lot of different blushes from high end brands and drug store brands.. But I just keep coming back to this. I love that "Spicy and sweet" has 4 colors, I usually just blend them all together for the perfect pinky-peach. The lasting power of this is great and I usually struggle with my blushes fading off at the end of a 9 hours work day.. But this one does great. I've also had this blush for well over a year and a half and it doesn't even look like I've hit pan. If you have light/medium skin, I highly recommend this for a great everyday-(you don't have to think about it) blush!
I hate to soil this acclaimed product with a poor review, but this just didn't do it for me. It's a glitterbomb. Very pretty colour but looks totally unnatural on me due to the copious sparkle.
As always with Hard Candy products, the packaging is gorgeous and girly.
This blush provides a pretty sheen to the face, while also giving you the most subtle long lasting flushy finish, depending on which color you choose. It's nicely pigmented and soft. The brush it comes with, I have to say, it's ridiculous! I threw it away and used this product with my EcoTools blush brush, which by the way, is amazing. Everything about the product you will love, including the prize! But if you liked this and are on a tight budget like me, I would recommend the NYC Color Wheel instead, because it will provide you with much more color and product for even much less money (it is under $4), and it also has earthy bronzy tones.
Anyway, this product is very decent and pretty! Do recommend! :)
