Fox in a Box

For months I've been seeing a couple posts on some new Hard Candy Blushes.  When I saw the pictures, I knew I had to have them.  Only problem was my Walmart get things in uber late.  They still don't have them either; I had to stop at a random one I saw while in North Jersey.  If its something I hate, is when companies don't get it together & release products at the same time everywhere rather than when the stores feel like it. 

Anyways there are 5 Fox in a Box:  2 Bronzing Duos & 3 Blushing Quads. I only picked up 2 for now, one of each.

What They Say ...
A highly pigmented multi-color powder compact that will surely bring out your inner foxy lady. Each box contains coordinated shades that blend together perfectly and a custom Hard Candy applicator brush. Sweep across chin, cheeks, and forehead and unleash the foxiness in you!

-- Brush is useless

What I Say... 
I was fairly surprised by these blushes!  The pigmentation is AMAZING for drugstore blushes.  I understand that Hard Candy used to be a higher end brand BUT they no longer are.  I'm happy that tho their price point has changed the quality of the actual product hasn't.  I NEVER have a problem with blushes fading tho I do tend to use better quality products, not necessarily high ends brands tho. Also my skin is normal to dry.  The blushes went on and blended like a dream & the colors I got I like!  Initially I was draw in by the packaging.  It reminds me of how Benefit packages their blushes.  Upon using it tho I have realized that the packaging is cheaper. Sturdy but not great quality.  This may bother some but I'm not one for packaging anyways.  
The brush that comes with it is cute but useless as its flimsy & scratchy.

Skinny Dipping Bronzing Duo -- A rosey tinged bronzer & orange coral color, swirled together ends up being a more muted warm orange

Smooth Talker Blushing Quad -- A light pinkish beige, A light orange tinged peach color, a warm light pink, A peach, swirled together turns into a nudey peach color

Skinny Dipping looks really pretty.

Canada gets things later than some
parts of the States. It's super frustrating when I live 30 minutes away from the border but the products arrive on my side like a year later. Ok, I'm exaggerating but we see some products after a while!

I guess I will consider trying these now I saw them and picked them up but put them back before cashing out.
