Are you a fan of drugstore lipstick? I’m a total lipstick hoarder and usually buy mostly high-end products. However, I’m in drugstores and big box stores from time to time and always take a stroll down the cosmetics section just in case there’s something that catches my eye. On a recent trip to Walmart the Hard Candy Fierce Effects lipsticks caught my eye. These lipsticks retail for about $6 and come in an attractive tube.
These are “highly pigmented lipsticks with an ultra-soft weightless texture. The formula is infused with argan oil for added moisture and shine.” Fierce Effects Lip Stick is available in a wide variety of 24 shades and finishes, ranging from classic nudes, to reflective metallics, to bright, bold unconventional colors. They just added six new matte shades to the range to offer even more variety.
I chose to purchase an older shade from the collection rather than one of the brand new ones as I’m not a fan of matte lipstick on my mature lips. I chose my typical pink shade called At First Blush. This shade is a “go to” for me since it’s very wearable on a daily basis.
I like the way this lipstick feels on my lips. It truly is a weightless formula. I can get away with a single swipe. However, I usually apply additional layers. It’s not particularly long-lasting for me. The packaging is fun and seems much more luxurious than it is. The affordable price tag makes these lipsticks even more enticing to me. I recommend you try one or a few from the collection.
Have you tried any of the Hard Candy Fierce Effects lipsticks? What do you think of the new matte shades?

I’ve been eager to try something from Hard Candy but I never knew what to choose. Lipstick is always a good first choice. I love At First Blush on you, and it looks much lighter on than it does in the swatch. I had thought from the swatch it might be a good choice for me, thinking it was a mauve shade, but too light, boo hoo. Maybe Ruby Slipper instead. I love the cute packaging.

Those are some different colors. I am looking forward to checking out this line!
The packaging is indeed fun. I like the color you’re wearing here
The black, purple and blue are my kind of colors! The pink looks nice on you.

I think the packaging is so nice. I tried some but none as pretty as the one you bought. Wearing them doesn’t feel like a $6 lipstick.

I’ve never heard of the hard candy fierce effects lipsticks but will definitely look for them the next time I’m in Walmart. Your review has peaked my interest, especially the word “weight less”! I cannot stand a lipstick that feels painted on.

I used to love hard candy nail polishes. If I’m to be honest I almost forgot the brand existed. These lipsticks look fun though

I definitely need to try that color Crave! <3

I love Hard Candy products! Especially love their Glam-aflauge concealer. It’s awesome!
These look cute! I haven’t tried anything from Hard Candy before so these may might be the first thing I try 😊

I’ve never noticed this brand, but I really like the packaging! Thanks for an informative review!
the shade at first blush is calling my name! looking forward to trying these out
I want to try it. Is a beautiful effect. I love lipsticks too.
I’m glad the shade of lipstick you got didn’t disappoint. It’s a very wearable shade for an everyday look! I’m also not a fan of matte lipsticks, I do have matte lipsticks but I don’t reach for them like I should. Love the packaging too, thanks for sharing!
I have been curious about these since Hard Candy can be such a mixed bag. Glad to hear this one is good!

I really love these Hard Candy lipsticks, but mine seem to melt really easily.
Love the packaging on these lipsticks, might have to pick up a few.
