Hard candy : Eye Def shadow
This is the second piece of Hard Candy that I have bought (I bought an eyeliner from them a couple years ago, it was ok) and I am not really sure what to think. I really like the idea of this shadow-a tube of sparkly liquid eyeshadow that you simply swipe across your lid:
The cons are...well...this stuff doesn't blend easy, and kind of flakes off on the rest of your face. Now, granted, I just tried it on real quickly at home, so there might be a lot of things you can do to remedy these issues. One idea I thought about later is that I should have applied a similar-color powder shadow to my lids first so there wouldn't be a dramatic line of 'wow sparkly shadow-naked lid', since this stuff is hard to blend. Also, a lot of different eyeshadows tend to fall/flake onto the rest of your face, and there's a ton of stuff you can do to fix this problem such as: gently remove with a tissue...apply eyeshadow first and then your foundation/blush/etc. after, or even use a piece of tape to roll across your face where the shadow has flaked and remove (kind of like a lint brush hehe).
So...all in all...this stuff might take some working with to get right, but it definitely looks great on! I will keep you posted once I work with it more and figure out how to get the kinks worked out...
