Via Fashionista, we hear that glittery, teen-friendly makeup brand Hard Candy is close to shutting down. "Jane Mayle isn't the only '90s upstart shuttering: Hard Candy will also slim down by next season, selling only its gift sets and liquidating everything else, including the iconic pastel polishes that made the brand famous, thanks mostly to Clueless and MTV. The good news in all this is that they're liquidating their inventory, so you can get tons of makeup for under $5." [Fashionista]
