i admit at first they made my eyes sting a little but i like them because they are easy to wipe off when they dry. but there is a downside..when they dry sometimes when i looking down doing my school work, i see little shimmery chips of silver fall on my paper and it's this eye shadow...so i re-apply most of the time. its great and its results look awesome, but i dont like when it cracks and chips.
I bought the blue one and I think that the wand is a little to long to control but it has great shimmer and the colour is incredible! It lasts for quite a while and I found that with my skin it kind of tattooed it and the colour soaked in a lasted for at least 2 days. But all in all I think that they are a great way to express you creativity and have fun. Oh! And they look fun on lips too!<3
This product was my first introduction to Hard Candy, and it made me a believer!! I wasn't expecting anything for a 4$ creme eyeshadow, but holy was I wrong. I LOVE this stuff! The quality is excellent - it goes on opaque but is versatile and can be blended sheer, and it lasts all day and doesn't crease, even when it's on thick. The colour is explosive - definitely a great way to be introduced to a new brand.
absolutely love these!
I bought one just to try in a sparkly light gold/ pale gold shade. I forget the actual name of it, but it reminds me of sand (the color). I applied it without primer, just by putting three dabs on my lid, then I blended it and it amazed me how pretty it was! The color is stunning and the sparkles add an extra summery effect. So I would def recommend trying one for summer :) theyre fairly cheap too and I want to get a few more shades.
I picked 4 of these bad boys up at Walmart a few days ago and have been very happy with the results! The swatches i picked up are:
330- Sprinkles. A sparkly red/pink color in the tube yet a more red color against my skin
426- Golden Earth. Sounds like the name of a Doctor who episode lol but is a lovely nude bronze color on my skin appears nude in the tube
329- Robot. A very sparkly silver both on my skin and in the tube
431- Miss Enid. A very gold color in the tube and on my skin.
I was very pleased with these tubes, the color stayed on without primer for about 7 hours and 8.5 with UDPP. I also managed to pick up a Hard candy primer going to see how that works with these creams.
I picked these up to make an awesome glittery look for a concert, and they worked really well. The brush is a little hard to make precise lines with, but the effect in the end is great. I'd be a little careful using it on your eyelids, it kind of makes them stiff, but if you only use a little bit it works ok.
Something fun to try out.
I bought these a few months ago when they first came out and it first started off with one... then 3.. then 5.. and then ya know where this goes :p I absolutely love them! The do crease of course, but thats probably cause i have oily lids, but i love using the bright colors when i go out to parties or whatnot! I would definitely recommend them to people.
Impressive all around.
I have these in every color, but took off a star because certain colors stain. The ones that I've noticed leave a stain are sprinkles and lagoon. Sprinkles is the far left one in the product pic and lagoon is the middle one. They also have a teal blue, a royal purple, a bronze, silver, the green in the pic above, and another green-gold. I've only experienced staining with the two mentioned.
These are cream shadows that apply with a doe-foot applicator. You can apply them sheer or thick, but they do not blend like most cream products, because of all the glitter.
I use the wand to apply a thin, even coat where I want it, then leave it to dry for about thirty seconds. Once dry, it is budgeproof and creaseproof. I've gotten 12 hours of wear on these without a primer or setting them with a powder.
The glitter is intense. These go on opaque because the cream product is tinted to match the glitter. If you're looking for a one-step glitter shadow, this is highly recommended. It would be excellent for drag, as well, because it has a long wear and NO FALLOUT.
I saw these in the makeup section and freaked out. A tube full of glittery goodness. Maybe I didn't use mine right, but they were sort of a let down. I got the purple and the silver ones. When I use more than just the tiniest bit as an eyeliner-esque look, it dries out and becomes stiff and uncomfortable. If I were to find a way to use them for more without the discomfort, I would absolutely love them.
