Here is my combination: I have black hair and very yellow skin-NC30. This is a beautful blush in the pan but it did not show on me very well. I wear ELDW in Tawny and this is hardly noticeable on my foundation. It is very shimmery. I use this as an eye shadow and mix it with my other blushes to bring down the intensity of my other darker blushes so it is not a complete miss for me.
One of my favorite blushes. It is bright pink, and the shimmer to it gives more of a glow on me than a shimmer. Lasts all day and can be built up in intensity. I personally use a dense flat topped brush to kind of pack the color on when I want it to really stand out. Very reasonably priced considering it's huge! Unfortunately it does break very easily, the rounded top broke right off (all in one "sheet") but I was able to leave it on top and continue to use very easily. I would definitely buy again if I ever were to run out.
I love this blush! I have been searching for ages for a pink blush that would actually show up on my skin. Comparing this to my MAC Hello Kitty blush in Pretty Baby, Living doll wins hands down. I will admit that isn't really fair because Living Doll is a mineralized blush and Pretty Baby is not.
I got this blush on a whim because I had heard good reviews about it and it was rather cheap to give it a try. It works wonders I only need two passes to get a nice glow to my cheeks and it has an amazing stay power. I like it because I have this weird combination under tones of pink and yellow and this is a shade that I can wear without looking like I have roseacia so I really enjoy it, and for under $10 it was well worth the investment.
So, being a die hard UD fan and finding out that they carried Hard Candy at Walmart... I rushed right over. Unfortunately, the Walmart I went to was very picked over and I actually went for concealer, but they didn't have any. But, I couldn't let that trip go to waste and this was one of the things I picked up. And let me just say that I am in love. :) Its a very, very pretty pink color with some gold shimmer. It looks very pretty on my pale skin and on my tan skin. And the color is buildable and very pigmented. I think I found a new fave. Plus, its Urban quality and super cheap... What's not to love?? I will definitely be repurchasing when I run out and I will buying some more Hard Candy.
This blush gives me a somewhat enhanced flush to my cheeks, not super natural, but not. Pigmentation is good, the shimmer doesn't really register on my skin though. Very good blush, only reason not rebuying is because I want to move over to cream blushes, also this will take years to use up.
This is currently my HG blush. I can see how some reviewers are having issues with pigmentation, as I believe that this is a product you will have to "break in." The first few times I used this all I got was a pretty pink glow, but it seemed that the more I took off the top, the more pigmented it became. Now it's just a really pretty pigmented pink and I love it. Ladies, don't give up on this product!
I'm NC20 and this blush gives such an ethereal glow to my cheeks that looks very natural and pretty. Staying power is good and it blends easily. The color is just magnificent. Will def. be checking out more Hard Candy stuff!
Very similar to MAC's mineralize blushes but just a little more color payoff. They are very inexpensive yet high quality...the color isn't sheer but isn't heavy either.
I highly recommend these to anyone in the market for another blush.
One of my favorite blushes! I love the color. It's buildable and it's sheer too. I love sheer pink blushes. And the finish is so shimmery. Looks gorgeous on pale skin tones! Will rebuy! :D
I really like this blush. The packaging is super cute & it's such a gorgeous pink color.
but i'm a little confused reading these reviews. some people are saying the blush is very sheer-toned & not "too pigmented" whereas others are saying its wayyyy too pigmented. I ended up buying this blush with multiple items in the Hard Candy set. Other items included: the pink lip plumper, the face primer & the 24K gold illuminator. i think all of that for under 10 $s. So maybe the blush in the set that I bought is different from buying this on it's own?!! Because the blush that came in the set looks nothing like the compact it is in in the pictures above. But on the back its labeled as "Living Doll"...and it is exactly the same color as the pictures listed above? Hmmm...idk..
Anyways....This blush is amazing!!! & extremely pigmented! Only a light hand is needed. I'm tan and I still only need a tiny bit to show up. & i absolutely love the gold shimmer in it. sooo cute!! :)
