This blush is incredibly pigmented like the other "Fox in a Box" blushes.
The blush consists of 4 colours: a super light peach with a lot of shimmer but doesn't show up on your cheeks so mush that it screams "look at me", a matte brown-peach, a medium pink with shimmer, and a HOT HOT HOT FUCHSIA!! If you mix them all together, it makes a dark pink. You need to use a light hand with the dark colour unless you have a darker skin tone. I took off a lippie because I don't find myself reaching for this blush very often.
I saw this a thought it looked really cute I love the box it comes in. the colors are very pigmented, almost too much. I dont like how 4 colors are in one little box and when you blend them together on your brush it just doesnt look so good on my cheeks. I think the bright pink is a little too bright but the lighter one is nice.
I have had this blush for forever now and I just recently fell back in love with it. I used this all the time back when hard candy first re-launched at Wal-mart. Than I started to cheat on this little guy when I found myself getting into higher end brands. Recently while going through my makeup stash I pulled this out and it's been my go to blush lately when I have a hard time deciding between shades. I really like to focusing my brush in the 3 lighter shades rather than the hot pink. Those 3 shades it makes a perfect flush on the cheeks almost natural looking (key word here is almost haha). This is a boxed powder similar to Benefits, I love the idea in mind with the packing but the designs on the packaging are a little tacky but this does not effect the packaging and it's ability to protect the product inside. This is powdery but what do you expect for the price you pay ($6)? Plus whenever I need to add more color to my cheeks I just dab my brush into that powdery/fall out that sits on the top of the product. Staying power is amazing for drugstore, I've worn this today since 1:30ish and it is now 9:40 and I still have a perfect flush of color. Also to mention I do have Oily skin! As of right now this is the only fox in a box blush I have but I will be purchasing more!
This blush, in one word, is -pigmented-. The bright neon pink square definitely packs a punch of color. This blush is great for stage makeup! I used this for my dance recital this year, and it looked great. Applying it with a regular blush brush works fine, but you have to use a light hand. Using a stippling brush gives you a very light coverage, but it still looks noticeable because of the bright color. I would not purchase this color again, but I would definitely choose another color, like sweet&spicy. The packaging is adorable, but if your makeup bounces around in your bag, the magnet on the box may become weak and open up. It isn't a problem for me. The brush it comes with is useless, but still cute. It's good for a little girl or if you don't have the money to buy brushes, but I don't recommend it. Great product for only $6, and I would recommend it for stage makeup. :) continued >>
Why why why? I LOVE HARD CANDY, so why do I get all the dud products? I know some people LOVE this...but it didn't give me any color!! I rubbed my finger on the product and all it gave me was a sheer layer of glitter on my forefinger. I tried to dust it on with a blush brush, but it didn't provide any pop of color. A thumbs down.
One of HC's definate "hits" for me. This is a darker blush because of the bright, fuchsia pink square; however, it gives me a natural flush of color when applied with a light hand and/or stippling brush. The texture of the blush is very smooth, applies and blends very nicely into the skin and lasts for a long time on my combo/oily skin.
The packaging is a bit OTT and my box doesn't even stay shut, but that's really my only complaint.
For general info on the quality of these blushers please see my review of the color "Spicy and Sweet." This color is far less "Sweet" and quite a bit more daring when used on a medium toned skin. On darker skin it becomes far less dramatic. I use a rather fuller blush brush than I would normally (as the brush which comes with this blusher is useless except for something I will explain later.) This is a very highly pigmented color and for fair-medium toned skin one needs to be light handed. The texture is wonderful as they go on smoothly and wear exceptionally well, hardly ever fading no matter how long your day. I like to use the brush which comes with these blushers to apply one of the four squares of color to an eyelid or browbone as eyeshadow. Highly Recommended!!!
I got one of the other colors in the Fox in a Box, but with my tan it wasn't working too well, so I decided to try this one instead since the pinks were a darker/deeper color. Instantly I fell in love with it and now I use it for my everyday make up routine. I don't like the brush at all, the only convience it has is if I need to take the box with me I don't have to worry about bringing my regular brush. I currently use a small rounded Kabuki brush to apply it. I never have to reapply it throughout the day because it blends great with my bronzer and looks natural all day long. I could see the packaging being a problem if you travel a lot and the lid opens up, but I keep mine in a make up drawer and it works great. I definitely recommend this especially for fall and winter to get deeper cheek color.
The brush sucks. However, a decent, small blush brush and it's awesome. you can pick your color combo or which color and as long as you tap the brush to get rid of the excess powder, you get a nice flush that will last all day. If you don't know how to apply it then yes, you will look like a clown. if you're smart about combining and applying though, it's a great buy.
I love this product! it is so pigmented it is ridiculous (in a good way lol). i tried it on first with the brush that it came with (not really the best brush will probably get rid of it) and only swiped it through the box 2x. put it on my cheeks and it was too much color I had to take a reg brush and tone it down a bit! Wonderful colors separate or together, the price was amazing, and I love the packaging it is soo cute! Don't be scared of the cardboard box, it does have a magnet to make sure it is closed. Wonderful product can't wait to try out other shades in the line!
