Hard Candy Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Color in Sweet Pea and Cherry Blossom : Swatches & Review

PURCHASED
Hard Candy Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Color in Sweet Pea and Cherry Blossom
The Hard Candy Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Color retail for $(6)US and $7.98CAN at Walmart each. These snuck into my Walmart without a display so I'm not sure if they are permanent or limited edition for spring, but there was new face palettes, face contour sticks, and waterproof twist up eyeliners as well.

Product:
This formula is a smoother version compared to Tarte Tartiest Lip Paint but denser than Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in pigmentation and dries down to a more matte finish than the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color. These feel smooth on the lips and neither drying nor hydrating.

This formula takes about 1-2 hours to dry down to a more matte finish.

Colour:
Sweet Pea is a soft light blue based pink with a cream to matte finish.
Cherry Blossom is a warm deep berry pink with a cream to matte finish.

Wear: For about 6 hours before needing a touch-up.

Packaging: A simple tube with a long doe foot applicator. The tin for the "box" has a mirror in the lid and you can house two shades inside the tin once you remove the velvet tray. There is also a clear insert tapped on to keep the product in the tin body.

It is cute packaging but I'm wondering if it's tacking on an extra $1 to $2 on the price as well.

Verdict
Finally, a drugstore product that gets the name right! These are very mousse like to apply but do dry down to a matte finish on the lip within an hour or less. They are also very comfortable to wear.
