Hard Candy World Balmination Glossy Tinted Lip Balm in Bridal Blush - swatches, pics, review

Hello, Beautiful!

Ugh, I woke up sick today! I have to leave tomorrow morning around 5 or 6am and go to Virginia Beach for the Jason Mraz concert. I have a feeling I'm going to be even more sick tomorrow because that seems to be my luck. Today I've been drinking orange juice like crazy, along with taking Cold Eeze and trying to rest (which is why I didn't get around to posting today until now). Hopefully this sickness will go away over night! Now that it's around 6pm I only have a few hours to do laundry, pack and do my nails for the concert.

I also want to welcome all my new followers! I can't believe how many followers have joined since launching my 500 Follower Giveaway! I hope you enjoy reading my blog and will stick around even after the giveaway is over!

Anyhow, onto pics and swatches of a great lip balm...

I picked up the Hard Candy Tinted Lip Balm several weeks ago at Wal-Mart and it got lost in our house (stuck in a bad of groceries, then rolled away in the kitchen, only to be found weeks later). I had totally forgotten about it and then my husband picked it up off the floor. I knew I had to do a review on it now that it had been found.

Check out my pics, swatches, stats and review...

Basic stats for Hard Candy World Balmination Glossy Tinted Lip Balm:
Formula: stick lip balm
Coverage: sheer
Wear: average
Shade Info: 8 shades shown on the Hard Candy website shades available for individual sale
Cost/Availability: $3.00 each (0.13 oz full size), available at Wal-Mart
Packaging: typical lip-balm tube; see-through packaging allows you to see the shade in the tube; twists-up
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Kisses!

This is a stick lip balm formula. Glides on easily and moisturizes your lips nicely.

You'll get very sheer color from this tinted lip balm, so don't be afraid of some of the brighter shades that are available. I went with a shade that looked light just in case, but now regret buying a shade that basically gave me no color.

Average wear for a lip balm; re-apply as necessary.

Shade Info:
Currently, there are 8 shades available on the Hard Candy website. I can't remember how many were available at my local Wal-Mart but I want to say all 8 were there - although I purchased the last Bridal Blush shade and a few other shades were getting low on availability. This was several weeks ago so I have on idea what it's like now.

Just $3.00 each! You can find Hard Candy only at Wal-Mart and you can purchase them on Wal-Mart's website.

Comes in your typical twist-up lip balm type tube. The lid is see-through so you can see the design of the inside tube. Each shade has a different design.

Hard Candy World Balmination Glossy Tinted Lip Balm Review:
I really liked this tinted lip balm! It made my lips feel moisturized and added a nice kiss of glossy color. I mean, sure, it's not super glossy or anything but it adds more gloss than a typical lip balm would.

I was so happy with it that I plan to pick up another shade or two on my next trip to Wal-Mart. I think I want to try out the shades Good Girl and Fishnet -- since the shade Bridal Blush barely gave me any color at all!

For just $3 it's worth giving it a try!

Now let me know what you think...
Do you already own this tinted lip balm? If so, what shade do you own? If not, do you think you'll check this out? Discuss in the comments below.


  1. I think I would be this just for that beautiful packaging! It reminds me of Kat Von D. I put lip balm on all throughout the day so this would be great. Thanks for the post. I didn't know HC made a lip balm.

  2. i just got this balm today but went with fishnet. I really like it, since my lips are fairly pink to begin with, i get a nice wash of color and they stay moisturized.

  3. I adore this lip Balm it is my go to perfect tint ( bridal blush ) i love it very natural
