Hard Candy 3rd Wheel Contouring Face Trio Review

This is probably my favorite new product from the Hard Candy Spring 2014 line. The colors are beautiful, the pigmentation is just right, and the texture is lovely and smooth! I kinda want to pick up one… or two more after trying this one. ;)

The bronzer is definitely the most pigmented of the trio, so I try to apply it with a very light hand. The blush is a lovely, unique to my stash, shade that is more subtle and can easily be built up for more color. I love the highlighter shade in this trio the most! It is more on the subtle side (which is probably not necessarily a bad thing), so I tend to build it up because I’m crazy for shimmer. The color in the highlight is pinkish… and it reminds me of an opal. 

Wear time for this product is decent… I didn’t notice any major fading throughout the day.

Something to note about products like this, that come with three shades in one pan, is that sometimes, it’s hard to get your brush into just one color. I didn’t have that problem with this product. Yes, I had to be a little more careful to not pick up some bronzer when going in for the highlight shade, but the colors are large enough that it really isn’t an issue.

    This actually looks really pretty. I find Hard candy products to be hit or miss for me but still worth trying. Anything I don’t like goes right back to Walmart so it’s not much of a risk to me. I’ve had my eye on these for some time now and am tempted now that I saw your swatches. :)

      Thanks Amanda! I am the same way about products I don’t love… right back to the store they go! You should probably just give in and try one of ’em out. Hehe ;)

    The first thing I was about to ask was how difficult is it to get your brush into just one of the colors but you answered it for me. Good job! :) I’m not much of a fan of Hard Candy, largely because I remember when it was sold at Sephora and had infinitely better quality (and with MUCH better and not so tacky packaging) but I’ll admit to finding a couple of decent items in their line. Overall I’m kinda “meh” about it. LOL.

      Thanks for sharing, Irene! When Hard Candy was at Sephora, I wasn’t really into makeup, so I don’t have anything to compare the current brand to. I can see how that would be totally disappointing though. Serious lame sauce.

      I do my best to the thorough in my reviews, but I know there is always room for growth, so thank you for your comment!!
