Hard Candy Blooming Lip Oil Review


Color changing products are extremely popular right now, so when I was given the opportunity to review Hard Candy’s new Blooming Lip Oils, I said “Bring it on!”

The lip oils are packed with 10+ essential oils and are one of those magical color changing lip products that react with the PH of your lips to produce a hue that is unique to you.  The lip gloss is easy to apply due to its doe foot applicator.



Available in three colors:

Black Rose – transforms from black to a bright pink tint

Calming Peach – transforms from clear to coral

Zen Strawberry – transforms from clear to rosy pink

The first color I tried was Black Rose.  To be honest, I was horrified at my black lips…for about 20 seconds.  Right before my eyes, the scary black color morphed into the loveliest shade of pink.  Black Rose was the only color I received to review, but I was so impressed with it, I went to Walmart and purchased the other two colors so I could do a proper, more in depth review.

These lip oils are silky and smooth.  The gloss stays around for about 3 hours, but what you are left with is beautifully hydrated lips and a gentle stain.  This stuff really lives up to the claims of hydrating for up to 8 hours.

Here is what Hard Candy has to say about their product:

Blooming Lip Oil is a hydrating oil-gel lip treatment that quenches and hydrates dry, chapped lips for up to 8 hours. This formula instantly melts onto the lips, coating them in a blend of hydrating oils. The result is an extremely shiny finish in a shade that adjusts to your body chemistry. By interacting with your body’s pH levels, you will see a uniquely adjusted shade every time. The shades adjust to translucent and natural hues that tint lips for hours so you never need to re-apply. This lip oil-gel formula is fully packed with more than 10 essential oils that penetrate deep beneath the surface to nourish your lips. The oils repair and heal dry, parched lips and protect them from chapping.

If you’re a lip gloss lover, it really is worth checking these out!  Available for $6 exclusively at Wal-Mart.
