Hard Candy Fierce Effects Lipsticks in Sky-Lac, Night Queen, Sky's The Limit, Jealousy, & Sunshine ~ Part - 2

PURCHASED
Hard Candy Fierce Effects Lipsticks in Sky-Lac, Night Queen, Sky's The Limit, Jealousy, & Sunshine
The Hard Candy Fierce Effects Lipsticks retails for $5US and $6.99CAN at Walmart.

I was actually very hesitant to pick these up just because of the sheer to semi-opaque coverage with the original Fierce Effects Part 1 shades I reviewed.

Ingredients

Product:
These are creme finish lipstick using an Argan Oil base for extra hydration. They are very pigmented but I feel that the base formula does a disservice for the long wear properties found in a lipstick.

For instances, all the pastel shade I've tried now (Chalkin' Pink, Sky-Lac, Sky's The Limit, & Sunshine) all suffer from sheerness due to the creamy texture of the formula flowing around on your lips. It's not that the pigment they used is bad, but it really settles into lip lines.

The Metalic shade of Night Queen, & Jealousy are much more even in applying over the lips.

Colour:
Sky-Lac is a pale lavender with a cream finish. This shade has white Micro-shimmer.
Night Queen is a rich primary blue with a metallic finish.
Sky's The Limit is a bright pale blue with a cream/gloss finish. This shade has turquoise shimmer.
Jealousy is a rich vibrant green with a metallic finish.
Sunshine is a bright canary yellow with a cream/gloss finish. This shade has white shimmer.

Wear: 2 to 4 hours wear total before it fades almost completely. These are way too emollient to get them to wear long on the lips with the nature of the pigment.

The metalic shades of Night Queen and Jealousy where also the 4 hours wear lipsticks without a lip liner.

Packaging:
Basic plastic twist-up tube, the studs are mirror metllic silver indents inside the cap lip with a clear cap tip to show off product colour.

Sunshine 
 Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Canary with Hard Candy Fierce Effects Sunshine over top

 If you want a base lip liner I atually don't recomend this Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Canary, because it was very dry to apply and doesn't wan to apply smoothly over a larger eyelike the lips. ^ It look as patch on the lips as it felt. But if your looking for somthing much smoother to use, Make Up For Ever new Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner in M-40 (matte pastel yellow) if your looking for a matching shade (On my IMATS wish list.)

Yoy cal also use a white as well. ;)


Sky-Lac
Colourpop Brills lip liner with Hard Candy Fierce Effects Sky-Lac over top.

Again I don't recomend using this Colourpop Brills lip liner simple because the formul of it melts a tiny bit with this formula. But if your looking for somthing smooth and longwear (and doesn't melt with te product) Make Up For Ever new Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner in M-92(matte pastel purple) if your looking for a matching shade (Again on my IMATS wish list.)


Sky's The Limit
Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal - Light Blue with Hard Candy Fierce Effects Sky's The Limit over top.
The Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Light Blue did a wonderfull job acting as a based for the Fierce Effects Sky's The Limit over it. I did not melt into the formula nad very much prolonged the wear time for 8-9 hours before needing to touch up.

Another option is the Make Up For Ever new Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner in M-26 (matte pastel blue) if your looking for a matching shade (Again also on my IMATS wish list. lol )

Jealousy
Styli-Style Line & Seal 24 for Eyes 127 Jade with Hard Candy Fierce Effects Jealousy over top.
 I used Styli-Style Line & Seal 24 for Eyes 127 Jade as my base liner, And it was wonderfully smooth enough to apply on the lip and have even colour. You can fins other green liners pretty easily so any of those will work. I also got 10 hours wear with this combo.

Night Queen
NYX Slide On Pencil in Sunrise Blue with Hard Candy Fierce Effects Night Queen over top.
For this final base I used NYX Slide On Pencil in Sunrise Blue and it too was perfectly smooth to aply to the lips. I also got 9-10 hours wear with this combo as well.

Compare:
Bellow I have NYX Lippie Macaroon & Wicked shades to compare these colours to other drugtore shades you can use. But I have to say over all except the Mettalic shades Definatly kicks the longevity but of the Hard Candy Fierce Effects lipsticks.

Daylight swatches: Hard Candy Fierce Effects in Chalkin' Pink & Sky-Lac.
NYX Macaron Lippie Blue Velvet (top), NYX Wicked Lippie in Sinfull,

Verdict
Thes only really giving this secgment a thumbs up it the shades Night Queen and Jealousy are really pretty!

Over all These shades need a lip base to make them wearable for more than a few hours. These are a lot of manaince to wear whent he simplier solution was to make the formula less glossy / creamy / emolient, for hard to get right pastel pigments.

The struggle is real with these shades! But if you like to do creative lip looks you might be still interested in these.
