Hard Candy Contouring Face Trios!

Hey everyone, I'm back again with another drugstore review from Hard Candy! Usually Hard Candy is a hit or miss type of brand for me, but I'm beyond impressed with these new Contouring Face Trios. I absolutely love these because they are nicely pigmented, easy to blend, and convenient! 

The packaging is a bit bulky, but cute and sturdy nonetheless! This is a 3 in 1 type of product, you get a blush, bronzer, and highlighter all in one. Each trio has a smooth texture and is nicely pigmented. I found mine at Wal Mart for $9 each.

Here's a closer look at each trio (top left) 3rd Wheel (top right) 3x a Lady (bottom) 3 strikes.
Each trio has a shimmery finish that is really flattering on the skin.

Swatches from left to right: 3rd Wheel, 3 Strikes, and 3 x a Lady
If you would like to see how these apply on my skin, check out my video review here.

Claims: "Illuminate, contour and highlight with So Baked Sculpting Trio for a healthy looking, captivating glow. The baked trio includes a luminizer for highlighting cheekbones, a satin-finish blush for cheeks and a glowing bronzer that helps contour and define."
Finish/Texture:Each of these trios has a shimmery finish and a satiny smooth texture.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is amazing, each section gives bold color.
Lasting Power: I had no fading at all with any of these trios, they last all day on my skin.
Scent: There is no scent.
Packaging: These are packaged in a big, sturdy plastic compact, no mirror is included.
Price/Availability: I paid $9 each at WalMart


  • Great pigmentation
  • Variety of shades to choose from
  • Inexpensive
  • Smooth Texture/Easy to blend
  • Multi-purpose 
  • Great quality


  • Bronzers are not matte (personally I don't mind)

Although Hard Candy is usually a hit or miss brand for me, I highly recommend trying these contouring face trios! They give you such a beautiful glow to your skin, while providing the convenince of having all of your cheek products in one palette. Each shade in the trios has a shimmery satin finish with great pigmentation. While I don't think these are the best for major contouring or highlighting, they are simply perfect to add a little extra spice to an everyday makeup look.


  1. I bought all three of these because I saw you haul them and talk about them! :)

I love glamoflage concealor and I've been eyeing these for a while, the only thing stopping me is the bronzer being shimmery. 3x a lady would definitely be my first choice. Great post!

  14. That 3 Strikes trio looks almost exactly the same as this Salma Hayek blush/highlighter/bronzer trio in Mauve that I got from CVS once. However, I found that the Salma Hayek product was not very smooth or pigmented.

  15. These colors are so pretty and the packaging is cute too. I'm such a sucker for packaging and pretty colors!
