Product Review: Hard Candy Cheeky Tints

CheekyTints GroupShotRemember when Hard Candy celebrated its 20th anniversary by re-releasing its iconic nail polishes with the plastic rings? Now the company has come out with Cheeky Tint Sheer Blush Gels, and I’m in love!*

I have been wearing Surfer Babe on repeat since I got it. Its the poppy pink color third from right in the back row. I want to try You’re a Doll, the light pink that’s second from right, this summer. At just $6 a pop, I just may do that!

FYI, the operative word here is “stain.” These blushes give you a sheer wash of color, a pretty flush that lasts and lasts. Even through a marathon doctor’s appointment followed by lunch with Mama Bear.

Blush (or “rouge”) was the first makeup I ever wore. The nuns yelled at me to wash it off, but I didn’t care. I wore blush again the next day anyway. I look absolutely ghost like without it.

You can pick up Hard Candy beauty goodies at Wal-Mart. Cheeky Tints are coming this spring!

Do you remember Hard Candy from junior high and high school? (All the cool girls had those plastic rings…) Think you’ll try Cheeky Tints? Let me know in the comments!

Hard Candy 20th Anniversary

Hard Candy 2oth Anniversary Collection

Hard Candy 2oth Anniversary Collection

Children of the 80s and 90s, this one’s for you. I saw this post in Glamour about the 20th anniversary of Hard Candy Cosmetics, and it brought back memories. Some of them cringe inducing. To celebrate 20 years, Hard Candy is launching a Limited Edition Collection of makeup and nail polish at Wal-Mart. Check out the gorgeousness to your left.

The collection features eight nail polishes, including Sky, a light blue that became famous when Alicia Silverstone wore it on Letterman 20 years ago; an eyeshadow palette I can’t wait to play with; four liquid eyeliners; three lip glosses; and two baked blush compacts shaped like a heart. And yes, the nail polishes come with those plastic rings we thought were so cool. Here’s a better pic.

Everything in the collection costs less than $12, so it’s an affordable way to relive your Wonder Years.

The collection launches April 25 at Wal-Mart and online.

I’m in it for the nail polishes and the blush compact. Who’s coming with me?
