Hard Candy All Matte Up Hydrating Lip Stain: Swatch & Review

Another new product I spotted in the Hard Candy at Walmart recently is the All Matte Up Hydrating Lip Stain.  From what I can remember, there were around 5 shades in the matte line, and they retail for $5 each.  I picked up the shade Earthy Marsala.

The packaging on these is your typical lip crayon format. The outside packaging matches the lip color inside, which is always helpful!

I chose Earthy Marsala because it looked like a nice 90's nude to me, and I thought it would be perfect for fall! When I swatched Earthy Marsala, I was pleasantly surprised! It's nicely pigmented, and this shade has a nice warmth to it, so it's a brown nude, but it also has a little tinge of red or orange in it, which makes it even more perfect for fall.

As far as the formula goes - it feels like a matte lip crayon. That's about all I can say there. It's not overly drying, but it's not hydrating either.  It's comfortable on the lips. But...I wouldn't call this a lip stain.  This stayed around on my lips for a couple of hours, but more like a traditional lipstick would...not a stain. So other than that, that's about my own complaint with this product.  I really like the packaging, price, and the shade I picked out.  I'm a little curious to go check out more! They had one that looked like a dusty purple shade.  I was really tempted by that one!

Have you tried these new All Matte Up Hydrating Lip Stains from Hard Candy? What do you think about them?
