Hard Candy (which is exclusively available in Walmart stores and on Walmart.com) recently released several new products, including the “All Glossed Up” jumbo lip pencil, which is described as a hydrating lip stain. I purchased one in the color “Love Bite” – a pinky-purple.
I always have trouble photographing purples, so this swatch is not as color accurate as I would like; the pencil is actual a bit more purple. Still, you can see that the pencil has translucent-but-pigmented glossy color. I found it very comfortable to wear; neither moisturizing nor drying.
The lip swatch photograph is also a touch too pink. You can see how glossy and smooth my lips look, however! As promised, the pencil left a stain, though the stain was not particularly long-lasting.
I did not notice any smell or taste; unlike the Revlon Kissable Balm Stains, these do not have a peppermint scent, which I was half expecting just because these are similarly packaged.
Overall, I like this product – it is glossy and comfortable to wear, and because of the stain, reasonably long wearing. I do wish that the shade I picked, Love Bite, was more purple and less pink, but it’s still a nice shade (and is more purple than appears in the photos). For $5, I’d say that it’s worth purchasing one to try out if it looks appealing to you!
