This is a review for Hard Candy’s Fox in a Box in the color “Hot Flash.” Hard Candy describes these as “bronzing duos and blushing quads.” They are $6.00 and are available at WalMart.
A highly pigmented multi-color powder compact that will surely bring out your inner foxy lady. Each box contains coordinated shades that blend together perfectly and a custom Hard Candy applicator brush. Sweep across chin, cheeks, and forehead and unleash the foxiness in you!
Fox in a Box blushes come in tough cardboard boxes and have magnetic, flip-up tops. On the inside of the lid is a small, flat brush with pink, synthetic bristles.
Hot Flash has 4 colors: a peachy, shimmery highlighting color, a neutral, matte taupe/brown, a bright, cool-toned, sparkly pink, and a sparkly, fuchsia pink. Blended together, you get a subtly shimmery, bright pink color. You can also use the colors individually.
The pigmentation is good–nothing intense. You can layer the powder to get a stronger color. Because of the size of the individual colors, you’ll have to use a small brush to pick them up separately if that’s how you wish to use them.
The powder is incredibly smooth and the product applies evenly.
The least impressive part of this product, by far, is the brush. It is extremely poor quality: the bristles are thin, flimsy, and scratchy. There’s really no point to having it included in the box–I can’t see anyone actually using it to apply this product.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
It’s difficult to use the colors individually because of the size of the squares, but otherwise, application is easy and the product applies smoothly.
This powder is 5.7 g and costs $6.00. For comparison, Revlon blushes are 5.1 g and cost around $8.00. Hard Candy’s Fox in a Box blushes are a at a good price-point for the quality.
Try if: you want a good drugstore blush with subtle shimmers
Buy if: you want an affordable powder that can be used as a blush but also has individual colors you can use for highlighting, bronzing, and blush
