A Tale of Two Lip Clickers

By Wednesday, February 02, 2011

Not to long ago I picked up at my local Wal-Mart Hard Candy's Button Your Lip in Flirt and got in my Avon order Mark. Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lips Gloss in Bare. They are very different and I have different views on them so I wanted to do a comparison review.

The Products:
Hard Candy's Button Your Lip in Flirt
Mark. Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain in Bare
What You Get & How Much:
Hard Candy: Clicker liquid lip colour with 2.2g
Automatic lip liner with 0.22g
Mark.: Clicker lip gloss & stain in one with 1.5g $10.00

Hard Candy Mark.
Impossibly shiny glosses that glide on for the most glamorous "A-list" lips in town! Formulated to give 'em something to gossip about! The rich and luxurious formula is loaded with ingredients that make your lips feel soft and pampered. The head-turning shades feature a high fashion shine and will last late into the night. Coordinating automatic lip liner helps perfect your pout. Two steps in one quick click of the pen: This award-winning, innovative lip color goes on like a high-shine gloss, then wears to a rich stain that lasts hours and hours more. Minty fragrance adds a fresh kick. 0.05 oz. net. wt.

I plan on doing full reviews for both of these babies, but for now in this mini review I wanted to give you some quick swatches and my overall views on them.

I know it doesn't show in these photos, but the Mark gloss is really sheer and after 15 mins blotted off to my natural colour. I found no staining occurred.

The Liquid lip colour by Hard Candy on the other hand went on opauqe and is the perfect stickiness.

Sum it Up
Size and Price:
The Winner is...Hard Candy! by a landslide!!!
Bigger, has an automatic liner with sharpener and is cheaper...it totally wins.

The Winner is... Hard Candy again.
I love Mark. but the cheap minty smell makes it seem cheap. Plus I really don't find it stains my lips, if really just find it to be a lightly tinted minty (cheap minty) lip gloss. The Hard Candy on the othuider hand is thick and rich and lasts longer on my lips. I know it is a liq lip colour but it isn't sticky and has a quality to it that makes it seem like it is of good quality...so it wins.

The winner is Hard Candy! I actually returned the Mark. gloss because I felt it didn't do what I wanted and the Hard Candy was a better deal and I would rather have more of them than the Mark. in my collection.
