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! :)

I think the ladies below have said it all. Fox in a Box- Spicy & Sweet is an amazing blush/bronzer quad!! Hard Candy has some great products that have the quality and pigmentation of high end products.
- the texture feels so silky and soft from the moment you dip your brush in and onto your skin.
- it is extreeemely pigmented. I dab my brush into the box into 2 colors at a time, dab on my hand to take the excess out, and fluff onto my cheeks
- in the box, you can see a little bit of sparkle, but it seems 90% matte on my skin, which I like! I find some drugstore blushes have too much sparkle (ex. wet n wild blush)
- I've started to appreciate the packaging of this more and more, its not as cheap as I first thought. the first time you use it, the top won't close properly. just turn it upside down and put a weight on it, and it'll help it close fully.
Its rumoured that fox in a box blushes will be discontinued, regardless I'll be buying all the colors!

This is like the consistency of a Wet n Wild eyeshadow, but a blush version! very soft! The colours are beautiful on their own and beautiful when you mix em all together! The blush consists of 4 colours: a wearable, shimmery orange, a shimmery, brown-golden-highlighter, a pretty matte, light pink, and a deep pink. When you mix them together, you get a subtly shimmery peach that is perfect for summer! I find that it is incredibly pigmented and for $6 you can't go wrong! And it lasts a long time! I heard that these are getting discontinued, but I haven't seen them disappearing from my Walmart yet. You should definitely try them!

Love this blush! Such a great product for such a great price! (I got mine for about $4 and I live in Canada, so I can't imagine how much cheaper it must be in the US!) Will definitely have a hard time paying more for a blush in the future because of Fox in a Box.
The packaging is a little cheap and cutesy, and I would not recommend using the brush it comes with, but those are my only complaints!
Otherwise, this blush stays all day, is pigmented enough that I don't feel like I'm wasting product, but also isn't so pigmented that I'm scared every time I use it. Because it's got 4 colours in it, I can almost customize the colour I want for that particular day! I tend to use the 2 colours on the left hand side of the square, but that's just my preference! The bronze-y colour gives a great glow on my complexion (which in the winter is similar in hue to a piece of paper, but in spring/summer is a nice golden shade).
Overall, a great product!

First of all I'm not a blush girl. But I was checking out hard candy products and thought I'd give it a try ( after looking at my makeup alley iPhone app first) it had good reviews so I bought it and I must say... This may just turn me in to a blush girl. A nice pink without being too overpowering and pigmented and sweet looking. Also the hot pink box is very cute and so cheap only like 6 bucks or something. I'd buy it again IF I ever run out which I probably won't you get a lot of product.

This has been around for a while but I just picked it up today after running out of my hot flash color,I guess I forgot about four a while but now I'm like how could that even be possible because it's super pigmented and the packaging is super cute.I even use it as eyeshadow. Highlight/contour and blush all in one of us really wanted to. After you get the lid to stay shut by keeping something heavy on it for 1 night it closes perfectly.Hard Candy pulls it out again...I think I'm going to pick up some more cuz they're really great deal.LUV it

Hard Candy steals my heart yet again. Hard Candy is absolutely amazing - from the packaging, to the product, to the clever labeling they can't be beat. I am normally the opposite of a blush girl. In fact, I usually hate blushes...well, at least I used too. I cannot stand the "clown face" girls get when they have super pink cheeks, or just over done blush in general. I just think it's super ugly and makes people look too overdone. I am typically a fan of "Skinny Dipping" - the orange/coral/bronze blush and that is my FAVORITE blush of all time. I use it everyday, up until yesterday. I had bought Spicy and Sweet because I saw it on YouTube and a guru I like was raving about it. I had never used it up until a couple of days ago, and I immediately fell in love. It is the absolute perfect color! It seriously looks like I am blushing, it is the most amazing recreation. Whenever I wear foundation/concealer/etc my face is flawless, but it looks flat and it's all one color. This brings my face back to life! Skinny Dipping is still my favorite, but this is even more natural then that! I love the Box that the blush is in, it's really cute and just aesthetically pleasing. I am an NC30 and this blush is absolutely beautiful and flattering on my tan skin. I use a MAC 187 Stippling brush to apply this and I find that is the perfect way to evenly distribute the blush, and to make it the most natural looking. You won't regret this product! Also, I wanted to make a huge point - this blush does NOT FADE! Every blush I have ever tried in the past is gone in a few hours therefore I felt as though it was pointless. Not Fox in a Box! It lasts ALL DAY. so bomb. com

I don't swirl it, i just tap my brush in the center. It is a lovely color on my NW25 skin. I like the fact that it is easy to apply and long lasting. I wear this on daily basis now because I don't want to think about what to wear in the morning, and this is a good product for me. The only thing that I don't like is the card-box packaging.

This is a very nice product! I love this because you can swirl the four colors together or just pick up one color or just mix two, or three! There are so many combinations! And the best this is there is little to none shimmer. And the little bit of shimmer there is isn't very noticeable there are very tiny gold flecks.

This is definatley one of my favorite blushes of all time. It gives a nice glow to my skin while also giving a doll-like pinky-peach color also. This blush is very pigmented and I barely need to rub my brush in it to get product for both cheeks. This performs like and better than alot of H/E blushes I have tried and own. You definatley get a great product for the price. I highly recommend this blush for other PPP's because this gives the face such a pretty glow. I will definatley repurchase.

There was a time when Hard Candy was only purchasable in Bloomingdales. Now it's available in Walmart where I purchased this blush for very little "out of pocket." The blush is an array of four differntly colored squares which you swirl your blush brush into very gently (as these are highly pigmented powders.) I do NOT advise using the brush that comes with this brush as it is far too small for blush application though it's perfect for dipping into a particular "square" of color and using as an eyeshadow across the lid or browbone as these colors have a slight shimmer to them. I think this particular color is so pretty, young, fresh and natural as if one pinched their cheeks. I'm Medium toned, but someone w/darker skin can use this shade also as these blushers are definitely "buildable." A very fair skinned person can use this color also, they just need to use a fuller brush for less deposit or be very light handed with application. Highly Recommended!

This product is great for first time blush users.
There are many color combinations. I got this in "hot flash". It look like two blushes and then two bronzers. The box is so cute and comes with a little brush. The box
Is closed with a magnet. One blush looks matte while the other has the tiniest little sparkle that is small. These colors are very buildable and are great in all seasons because of it's variety of color

This is my second hard candy purchase (first being the glamouflage concealer). This is such a pretty color!!! I mix all of the squares and apply to apple of my cheeks. It comes out to a pretty baby pink/peachy color. Super pigmented so I had to swirl lightly in the box. There is shimmer in this blush but it's not too much and gives my face a nice glow. Quality is awesome for the price! Def wanna check out the other hard candy blushes! :)

I've never found a blush I liked and could wear everyday, then I tried Fox in a Box. I'm in love with this blush and agree with everything everyone has said! It's a long lasting, subtle flush of color. The box takes a little manipulating to get it to stay shut, turn it over on itself for a few minutes and you've solved the problem. This is my new must have. Even if I only have a few minutes to get ready this is one of my must use products.

Got a friend to buy this for me from Walmart. It cost USD6 excluding tax, but its still classified as dirt cheap for me. First off, I like the intensity of the color, its pink and with a wee bit of shimmer in it. Just one sweep across the cheek is sufficient to see you through the entire day. It goes on sheer, not like its painted on. With regard to the packaging quality, it resembles Benefit's Dandelion and all but I didn't like it one bit. When I tried to close it, the cover of the box flips right back up and besides this boo boo, the cover tore a bit because they didn't cater enough material for the box to fold up. In addition, I find the box too deep thus its difficult to swirl my brush in it. I will buy this again despite its lousy packaging as the product is pretty good and its so damn cheap.

This is an awesome product. I'm and NC40 and I don't like the "I'm wearing blush" look (Or what I call "clown face"). I like a subtle flush of color. This is a matte blush with awesome pigmentation, when everything swirled together is a soft pinky peach with light shimmer. The packaging is adorable, a definite copy cat of Benefit's boxed blushes like "Sugar Bomb" Except these are $6 at your local Walmart vs. $28 for the Benefit blushes. I've been wearing this everyday and loving it!
