Hard Candy Metallic Mousse Liquid Lipsticks in Queen of Hearts, Truffle and Smoke & Mirrors

Metallics are all the rage this season. Particularly metallic lipsticks in liquid form. Want to get on the trend without spending an arm and a leg on shipping (or a lipstick that you'll only wear once)? Try the Hard Candy Metallic Mousse Liquid Lipsticks ($7.98 CAD).  


Hard Candy Metallic Mousse in Smoke & Mirrors, Queen of Hearts and Truffle

The Hard Candy Metallic Mousse Liquid Lipsticks are available in 7 shades. The three shown above are 1195 Smoke & Mirrors, 1196 Queen of Hearts and 1194 Truffle. There's also 1193 Sandstorm (bronze), 1197 Gilded Cocoa (brown), 1998 Sweet As Honey (gold brown), 1199 Penny Talk (copper). 

The colours are fairly wearable and right on trend. There's nothing crazy but I think that generally a metallic lipstick is for those of us that want to make a statement.  

Each lippie comes packaged in its own little mirrored tin. Uber hand when you're on the go! 

The Metallic Mousse is described as a "divine velvety texture... full coverage matte liquid lip colour that hydrates lips...and delivers bold long lasting wear". The texture is quite unique. Rather than drying down, it feels airy and whipped on the lips yet it still has full, one-swipe coverage. 

"Hydrating" is an overstatement. Find me a hydrating liquid lipstick and I'll give you a large sum of my life savings. Luckily, the Metallic Mousse is neither hydrating nor drying. It will definitely emphasize dry patches if you don't exfoliate first. But put in the work and the Hard Candy Metallic Mousse sits nicely on the lips. It's not entirely transfer resistant after drying down, but it doesn't migrate past my lip lines and stays put for at least 5 hours if I'm not eating anything greasy.

Hard Candy Metallic Mousse in 1194 Truffle // A silvery, dusty pink. 

Hard Candy Metallic Mousse in 1196 Queen of Hearts // A metallic take on the classic maroon. Hands down the most wearable shade of the three shown here. 

Sure, there are lots of other metallic liquid lipsticks out there. But this is one is comfortable, comes in wearable colours and is easily accessible!
