EVENT: #HardCandyFalliday2016

Put fall and holiday launches together in a room and what do you get? Falliday! 

Last week, I attended Hard Candy's Falliday 2016 event at Wish Restaurant in downtown Toronto, featuring yummy food, runway-inspired makeup demos, and a whole lot of exciting new makeup. If you missed all my Snaps/Insta-stories (@stephh_lau on both platforms - shameless plug), here's a quick recap:

Hard Candy Fall 2016 Launches

Seeing the Hard Candy Glamoflauge Mix-In Pigment Makeup Drops ($7.98 CAD) made me so happy. I've wanted to try the CoverFX drops but they're not particularly affordable. Hard Candy's are. I swatched a couple shades and they're pretty darn potent. The Makeup Drops are available in 12 shades. 

The Hard Candy Metallic Mousse ($7.98 CAD) is an affordable, accessible metallic liquid lipstick alternative for those of us that don't want to splurge $20+ on something we'll wear twice or don't want to pay the hefty ColourPop shipping. Available in 7 shades including a purple and a bronze! 

In lip prep, there's the Hard Candy Instant Lip Fix ($7.48 CAD) featuring a scrub and oil, as well as the Hard Candy It Takes Two Lip Primer Duo ($7.48 CAD) which includes a glossy lip primer and a creamy lip primer to prevent your lip products of any finish from fading. 

I've been in love with lip oils lately, because they're the perfect way to perk up your lips and add a bit of shine and colour without going all out. Hard Candy puts a twist on the traditional lip oil its new Blooming Lip Oil ($7.48 CAD), which goes on clear and reacts with the pH of your lips to create a unique hue. Available in 2 shades - zen strawberry and calming peach. 

Hard Candy is ahead of the curve with its unique lip colours. They've released new shades of existing products like the Hard Candy Fierce Effects Lip Gloss ($5.98 CAD), Hard Candy Plumping Serum ($6.98 CAD), Hard Candy Fierce Effects Lipstick ($5.98 CAD), and Hard Candy All Matte Up Hydrating Lip Stain ($5.68 CAD). Noteworthy mentions include the Fierce Effects Lipsticks in White Out and Twisted Metal (pure white and a glittery chrome) and the All Matte Up Hydrating Lip Stains in Cuckoo for Cocoa and Stix and Stones (a wearable brown and purply nude). 

Other Fall launches include the Hard Candy Top Ten Satin Eyeshadow Palettes ($6.58 CAD), the Hard Candy Sheer Envy Instant Eye Fix ($7.48 CAD), and the Hard Candy Sheer Envy Hydrating Primer Lotion ($9.98 CAD). 

Hard Candy Holiday 2016 Launches

Halloween and Holiday are my two favourite times of the year for makeup. Halloween hasn't even passed yet but if you're one of those super keen holiday shoppers, you'll probably want to know that Hard Candy has gift sets for as low as $2.97 CAD for lip gloss, nail polish and eyeshadow ornaments up to just $19.97 CAD for the Jingle Nails Set (19 nail polishes), the Glam Kit Supreme which includes 54 eyeshadows, 10 eyeliners, a shadow brush and a sharpener or the Best of Holiday Kit which includes 14 Hard Candy Best Sellers.


For the face - Hard Candy Blush, Contour and Conceal & Correct Kits ($4.97 CAD each)

For the lips - Hard Candy Flavoured Lip Balms ($2.97 CAD), Have a Ball Lip Gloss ($2.97 CAD), Get Your Lip On Set ($4.97 CAD for plumping serum, hydrating stain, shimmering gloss and a cosmetic bag), Lips of Love Set ($4.97 CAD for 3 x shimmer lip gloss, lip stain or daring gloss and a cosmetic bag), Size the Sparkle Set ($4.97 CAD for 3 x nail polishes) and the Glossing All the Way Set ($9.97 CAD for 20 mini lip glosses)

For the eyes - Glam Kit ($4.97 CAD for a palette of 9 shadows), Glitter Gel Palette ($4.97 CAD for 3 glitter gel palettes), the Party All the Way Set ($9.97 CAD for 9 eyeshadows, 6 liners and a cosmetic bag)
