Review & Swatches: Hard Candy Fox in a Box in Spicy and Sweet


HARD CANDY CLAIMS
A highly pigmented multi-color powder compact that will surely bring out your inner foxy lady. Each box contains coordinated shades that blend together perfectly and a custom Hard Candy applicator brush. Sweep across chin, cheeks, and forehead and unleash the foxiness in you!

PRICE & AVAILABILITY
PKR 950 / $6.00
I bought it from Wishlist. Also available at Walmart.

FACTS & FIGURES
5.7g of product in a sturdy cardboard box with a flip-top magnetic lid! It comes with a tiny brush applicator. Available in 5 combinations of duos/quads.

Are you in search of Benefit Box O' Powder packaging dupe?

  

MY OPINION
It is a complete look-alike of Benefit Box O' Powder, so I bought it! It comes in a cardboard box which you have to be a little careful with when traveling because it is a little flimsy. You just can’t throw it away in every crook and cranny lest you want to ruin it. The brush it comes with is cute but useless, not good at picking colours and very coarse. But the entire look of the box is as you can see ADORABLE! This is the only reason I purchased this blush.
These blushes are available in duos and quads. I purchased the Spicy and Sweet quad. The quads don’t give you four separate colours if you are hoping for it because individual squares are so small it is hard to pick one colour. Being a lover of Sleek-type pigmented blushes I was momentarily disappointed with the pigmentation. BUT I slowly fell in love with the softness of the shades. Swirling of all shades together gives a very flattering peach flush to the cheeks.
It has a wear time of upto 4-5 hours.
swatches (L-R) candy pink, baby pink, coral, bronze, all four blended
RATING
A combination of cute packaging and faint peach flush!
