Adorable marbleized baked powders in girl power adorned boxed with accompanying scratch and sniff packaging – yeah, that’s what I want! How did Hard Candy know? Somehow they reached my inner child, inner diva, and inner makeup geek all at once with Fox in a Box ($7). There are five shades available, each with its own yummy scent that you can test thanks to the handy scratch and sniff sticker on the outside of the package. Inside is a super cute box with a vintage-y cartoon of a fab gal adorning the cover and inside the box is a little brush and a highlighting powder.
The marbleized baked powders are made with finely milled mica pigments that apply sheerly to give skin a glow. You can build them up for more color. They aren’t too sparkly or shimmery, so they are more of a natural glow. I don’t find the brush to be that great, but the powder is terrific. It does indeed smell like it’s supposed to and the scents are quite yummy! I am reviewing three of the five shades available The other two are Glamour Girl which smells like pina colada and Uptown Girl, which smells like sweet peach.
Girl Boss is a champagne highlighter that smells like vanilla. It’s not a strong scent – actually the mildest of the three. This is a beautiful highlighter that gives a soft focus glow, and I am totally digging the full arm sleeve tats.
Girl Next Door is a pink highlighter that smells like strawberry. It’s a sweet, candy strawberry scent…like Pixi Sticks. I actually like it, which surprises me – the scent isn’t cloying at all, it’s just fun. The highlighter is very pretty. If you have very fair skin it could work as a blush. Otherwise it gives a beautiful healthy glow.
Party Girl is bronze highlighter that smells like chocolate. It smells like Hershey’s cocoa, actually, almost exactly! This is a great highlighter for those with lighter skin tones because it’s not too dark and will give just enough bronzing action. For darker skin tones it might not show up enough.
While I like all three, based on my usage thus far I am mostly a Girl Boss. Which fox are you? Head on over to Walmart to find out! – Lisa
