What's Better Than Hard Candy...

Hard Candy Cosmetics,  that's what!  I am a huge fan of Hard Candy Cosmetics,  so i contacted them and they were kind enough to send me a  product to review.  I usually purchase my Hard Candy products from my local Walmart store and they never disappoint me!  One of my favorite reasons why i like their makeup is because they offer a great selection of brightly colored makeup products and products that i typically wouldn't be able to find elsewhere.   I really love bright colored eye makeup because they make my eyes pop!  Hard Candy Cosmetics offers unique makeup products at reasonable prices.  I have not tried them yet,  but i noticed they have some really cool looking Eye Tattoos that i will have to try out soon!   

Now for the review-    I was thrilled to receive a Walk The Line-Liquid Eyeliner in black!  It will run you about $4.64-$4.68 at Walmart.  Upon first site i noticed it looked extremely glittery,  which i liked!  I usually use a roll on type of eye liner so i was kind of weary about using a liquid type of eye liner at first,   until i used the Walk The Line Liquid Eyeliner!  It was very easy to apply and glided easily across my eye,  from one corner of my lid to the other eye lid.  Because the liner is so sparkly,  it brought immediate attention to my bluish green eyes and added an extra touch of beauty to them!  I noticed that it immediately enhanced my eyes and left them looking glamorous! 

The Eyeliner did not budge or smudge and lasted all day long!  It is important to me for the makeup to last all day,  as i do not have time to apply it during the day.  While using this product,   i did not have to worry about that at all!   Because it was black it matched anything that i wore but they also offer the product in some other great colors as well.  Overall,  Walk The Line Eyeliners come in twelve different colors which also includes: Purple,  Blue and Aqua,  just to name a few!  I noticed they offer the product in the color pink,  which is right up my alley!  After i applied the eyeliner i noticed it dried super fast so i did not have to wait long to apply my eyeshadow.  My eyeshadow was easy to apply just above my eyeliner and did not get in the way of my liner.  I even liked the sparkly package that it came in! 
Hard Candy also sent me a lip liner to review but since i do not use them,  i gave it to a friend and decided to purchase a Hard Candy Cosmetic Product to also review.  I love eye makeup so i decided to go with a Kaleyedescope-Baked Eyeshadow Duos.     I love the fact that it comes with two colors because i usually use a brighter color on the bottom and then blend it in with a lighter color on top.   The Kaleyedescope-Baked Eyeshadow Duos come in an assortment of 14 different colors and run about $6.00,  which is very reasonably priced to be such a quality product.    I chose the Pink/White eyeshadow,  as once again pink is my favorite color and looks awesome on me!  

What i like most about this product is that they can be used wet or dry. The image above includes the untouched eyeshadow (by my wrist) and the other two shades are of the eyeshadow when wet. This is because the product has been baked,  not pressed!  You can give yourself a more dramatic looking effect(wet),   or tone it down with a more mild tone(dry).   I love using the eyeshadow when it is wet because it makes the colors stand out and shine more.   Kaleyedescope-Baked Eyeshadow Duos,   also makes a great eyeliner when used wet!   I simply add a bit of water to my applicator and apply it directly under my eyes.

*Disclosure-  Hard Candy sent me a couple of product samples to possibly review on my blog.  I also purchased one of their products to review on my blog.  In no way did this alter my opinion of their products.  All of my opinions are one hundred percent honest and true.*

Pretty shades, ;D

As a photographer I recommend shimmers not be worn for portraits, though. LOL!! They reflect oddly sometimes.
