Beauty Test Drive: Hard Candy’s Take Me Out Liner

Watch Claire Test Out This Bright Eye Liner!

Colored eyeliner is one of those beauty products I flirt with but rarely actually attempt. In fact, I usually wimp out even when it comes to colored shadow. That said, it seems like such an easy way to mix up your makeup routine without too much effort, so I was willing to give it a try. Hard Candy’s Take Me Out Eyeliner in Vice seemed like a good gateway into the world of colorful eyes, and if I’m being totally honest, the pretty glitter on the outside of the pencil was probably a bigger factor in wanting to try it than I should admit.

Get Your Hard Candy Fix At Walmart

In August, we heard cult ’90s makeup brand Hard Candy was coming to Walmart stores at lower prices. Well, the time to paint your nails funky colors and wear matching jelly rings has arrived. Hard Candy lipsticks, glosses, eye shadows, concealers, and, yes, nail polish, are available now. The products have retained their cute packaging and playful palette, but they’ve kicked the hefty price tag. Back when Hard Candy launched in the 1996, LA retailer Fred Segal sold bottles of pale blue polish for $18 a pop. These days, everything costs $10 or less. And, if you don’t live near a Walmart store, buy online — shipping costs just 97 cents. Needless to say, our nails will be painted forest green as soon as the postman delivers our order.

Hard Candy Nail Polish Set To Make Comeback

Remember Hard Candy? It was the nail polish brand of the late ’90s, successfully marketing funky nail colors like green, silver and frosty blue. The must-have brand was a middle and high school status marker—if you wore Hard Candy (or better yet, had a collection of bottles) you told the world that you cared enough to spend way more than $1 on the Wet ‘N Wild variety, and that you loved being a trendsetter. Then somewhere along the way, Alicia Silverstone stopped wearing the shimmery sky-blue polish, and the company slowly morphed into Urban Decay, only to let Hard Candy fall to the wayside and become available only in hard-to-find ways, like on eBay.com. Well, she’s back!

Paint Your Nails Pastel Blue While You Can

Makeup company Hard Candy, first known as a purveyor of pastel blue nail polish, will limit its offerings to gift sets starting next season. If you were a huge fan of their jelly rings back in middle school but thought the polish itself was overpriced when it debuted in the ’90s (LA store Fred Segal originally priced them at $18 each), now is the time to snap up bottles of every color. Hard Candy is having a ginormous 75-percent-off sale, and the iconic polishes cost just $1.75 each. [Hard Candy via Fashionista] Keep reading »

Madonna “Gives It” To Us

No pants, a jaunty hat, and thigh high boots — only Madonna can wear this outfit without someone calling the cops.

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of April 29th 2008

  • Madonna’s latest record seriously sounds as good as it is: Hard Candy. With her 11th album, my girl crush Madonna still manages to make me feel like a virgin, touched by her irresistable beat for the very first time. The sugary pop tracks, like the single “4 Minutes”, are tasty grooves, combining the dance floor dynamic of her best hits with an R&B bump and grind. Always on top, Her Madgesty enlisted an orgy of the most lickable men in music to do it with her: Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Timbaland, Danja, and Justin Timberlake.
  • Madonna’s not the only taste of female awesomeness out today: check out releases from Santogold, Portishead, Robyn, Carly Simon, and Lil’ Mama. [Pause And Play: CD Front]

  • Madonna’s Hard Candy Gets Leaked

    A bunch of tracks from Madonna’s not-yet-released new album, Hard Candy, were leaked this weekend. What do you think of her latest effort? We think a lot of the tracks seem to be more of a Justin Timberlake/Timbaland show than a Madge-spectacular, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. [Oh No They Didn't] Keep reading »
