Hard Candy Top Ten Eyeshadow Palette in Feelin Blue? (Product Review)

Image

Hard Candy is not a widely popular or well known cosmetic brand and I myself, only discovered it about a year ago at Walmart. What attracted me is the packaging to be honest, it was fun, cute, bright. I only got a nail polish, lip gloss and a loose eyeshadow and it was not the greatest. So, this time I thought let me try this eyeshadow palette, it was only about $6 CAD.
My overall opinion on it: MEH!

Flash/No Flash.

There are a few other palettes in different tones, as well but I went with this Feelin blue one.

Image

The first 5 shadows are light really shimmery tones and the other 5 are bright and darker colours.
At first glance they are really pretty colours and they look very pigmented. My VERY FIRST observation is HOLY they are so chalky! I mean you can even see some of the residue on my arm from the swatches. Just really really chalky and patchy.

So let’s talk about the first 5 tones.

Image
– very light
– not very pigmented at all
– you need to dab quite a bit and go over it to even see the colour a little
– not much difference between the tones
– if you are going for a shimmery look, then it’s all good, or to outline your bottom eyelash, it really makes the eyes pop!

Not very impressed at all with the lighter side of this palette.

Now onto the other 5 tones:

Image
– very pigmented
– very vibrant
– you can use it as eyeliner
– they are a little less patchy then the lighter tones but still chalky which I can work with because at least the colours are gorgeous and very pigmented.

So I am not sure how this works but I am unhappy with the lighter tones and pretty happy with the brighter colours. It’s like two different palettes. Basically, you get what you pay for. I wasn’t expecting anything amazing with a 6 dollar palette but this just confirmed that Hard Candy cosmetics is not the greatest quality. They really lure you in with their packaging but the products I’ve tried so far, NO BUENO! The nail polish wasn’t too bad.

I haven’t done any looks with this palette just yet but I will soon and I’ll post some pics πŸ™‚

Have you tried any Hard Candy products? If so, did you like it? I’d love to know!

  2. Nice review. I don’t have too much Hard Candy since I’m not too close to a Wal Mart! I do have a nail polish though which I like. I’ve heard they do have some good things though even if this particular palette wasn’t the best πŸ™‚

    1. I’ve only tried a few things and neither one of them were great unfortunately. Well except for the nail polish. That was fine. I want to try their lipsticks and see. I did get a purple lipgloss which looked really pigmented and a gorgeous shade of purple in the tube but completely clear on the lips!
