Now you know how much I love the formula of Hard Candy Plumping serum lipsticks from the Spring launch, so I am now most excited about the Fierce Effects lipsticks for Fall.
The packaging is matte black, glammed up by tiny "gems" embedded on the cap (not exactly age appropriate for me anymore but not a deal breaker either) and colour indication at the top. The tube feels slightly heavy on my hand, not the cheap thin plastic type.
Yes, Hard Candy goes pretty dark for Fall :) The line has 10 shades, I think, but I don't recall what the other 4 shades look like.
A little note I want to make: the surface on most bullets does not look completely smooth coming out of the tube. Again, not a deal breaker but I can't help wondering why they are that way.
Swatches of the first 3 shades, 2 swipes each, natural lighting on left, flash on right. Galactica is quite frosty, with a plum/ purple sheen but hardly shows up on my dark lips. Newly Berried is the easier-to-wear purple and Provocative is the more pink version.
And if you are wondering, I prefer the formula of the Plumping serum lipsticks but the pigmentation of the Fierce Effects lipsticks. But we can tell at this point that Hard Candy does lipsticks quite well :)
The Fierce Effects lipsticks are 0.11oz/ 3.2g, $5.98 each.
