Hard Candy’s Spring 2014 Collection includes a new product–the So Baked Contouring Trio–that includes a highlighting, bronzing, and blush shade. These trios are available in 4 shade combinations. This review is for the trio in 3rd Wheel.

Packaging: 9/10

This trio comes in a round and flat plastic compact that flips open and has a clear lid. The 3 shades inside are evenly divided.

Quality: 8.75/10

3rd Wheel contains a nude, almost colorless luminizing shade, a nude-peachy pink blush shade, and a soft, slightly yellow-based bronzing shade. The pan has luminizing particles throughout, which means all of the colors leave a sheen on the skin. I find that the bronzing shade can still be used for contouring, though, despite the luminizing particles.

All 3 shades have medium, softer pigmentation, so you get a sheer layer of color initially, and can build it up to medium-strength color through layering. The baked formula can also be more stiff in the pan, which means this product benefits from a more heavy application.

Overall, this is a very nice trio of colors to give the face a soft effect.

Ease of Use: 8.5/10

The powder from the So Baked trio blends fairly well over the skin. The size of each individual color in the pan is a little awkward to fit a brush into, so expect to use a smaller brush or one that’s tapered at the end. And you’ll need to layer for a stronger showing of color.

Price: 9.5/10

For $9.00 you get 0.39 ounces (11 grams) of product. This is an incredible amount of product for the price.

    Hi there! Hope you are well.

    When you have face powders that are stiff & hard, what type of brush do you use, generally?

    Thank you in advance doll.
