Hard Candy Fox in a Box - Smooth Talker


Packaging gets me every time.
Hard Candy Fox in a Box blushes come in a cute small cardboard box which was the main reason I tried this particular range. And you all know by now I have pretty unhealthy relationship with boxed blushes (khm...Benefit). 
I got a lovely mixture of neutral shades which compliment every single skintone. 

SLO
Pakiranje Hard Candy Fox in a Box rdečil je naravnost čudovito. Ravno zaradi lušne embalaže sem se odločila za preizkusim dokaj nova rdečila na slovenskem trgu. Hard Candy je ameriška kozmetika, ki je bila pred nekaj leti poznana kot visoko kakovostna in dokaj draga kozmetična znamka. Čez nekaj časa so se odločili znamko prestaviti v nižje cenovne trgovine (kot pri nas DM). Hard Candy je še danes dokaj popularna znamka z razlogom, vendar jo je bilo nemogoče dobiti v Slovenijo. 
Na srečo je Glossy.si, novejša spletna trgovina, pripeljala Hard Candy k nam!


Smooth Talker contains brightening yellow, taupe for contour, peach for warmth and light nude pink for highlighting.
It's a perfect mixture for getting sculpted cheekbones yet it acts like a subtle highlighter. 
Mixed together you get a lovely nude-peach.
Longevity is pretty standard, about 4-6 hours. It's quite dusty.
 Pigmentation is impressive and blend ability is nice.

Smooth Talker rdečilo vsebuje rumeno barvo za osvetlitev obraza, nevtralno sivo za poudarjanje, toplo koralno za toplino in svetlo roza za iluminacijo/poudarjanje. Je popolna kombinacija za poudarek ličnic ker hkrati konturira in osvetljuje posamezne dele. Če vse barve zmešamo skupaj dobimo prelepo nežno koralno
Rdečilo je dokaj obstojno (4-7 ur) ter se malo praši. Pigmentacija je zelo dobra hkrati pa se enakomerno nanaša.


Furthermore I find it almost identical to my beloved Benefit Sugarbomb.Color blocks are the same, only Hard Candy transfers a bit more nude/orange but no major differences on the cheeks.
They both give you a luminous finish but can't really pinpoint any visible shimmer in Hard Candy.
Texture-wise Benefit is softer but dusts as Hard Candy Smooth Talker. 

Barva je precej podobna poznanemu Benefit Sugarbomb rdečilu, ki ponavadi stane preko 25€. 
Hard Candy je na koži le rahlo bolj koralen ampak poda enak svetlobni učinek kot Benefit. 
Po sami teksturi je Hard Candy le rahlo bolj prašen.




All in all I really like Smooth Talker. It's a pretty unique nude color I only spotted in Sugarbomb and even Rockateur. 
I would recommend this blush to all skintypes and skintones. 
Keep in mind you will love cute packaging but it isn't travel friendly.
For 6$ or 6,90€ you can go wrong and you can buy it on Ebay. Slovenian readers can get Hard Candy on Glossy.si for 6,90€.

S Smooth Talker rdečilom sem na splošno zelo zadovoljna in sem podobno barvo našla le pri Benefit. 
Samo rdečilo bi priporočala vsem - od temne do svetle kože. 
Pozorni bodite le na to, da embalaža ni primerna za daljša potovanja. 
Trenutno so Hard Candy rdečila znižana na 6,90€ na Glossy.si .
