The hottest new cosmetic line now available at your local Wal-mart, “Hard Candy,” offers very nice, highly pigmented creme eye shadow duos in both very traditional and very vibrant colors. You’ll have a tough time choosing just one of these.
The packaging is very nice, especially for the price. These creme shadows come in a plastic case that’s about an inch across and about five inches long. The package opens long ways.
Inside is a tiny compartment that holds the two sided applicator. One end of this long stick is a fine, slanted brush that lets you apply the shadow in a broad line or a very thin one. In this way, it can be applied as both a shadow and a liner depending on how you angle the brush.
The other end of the applicator is a tiny smudging sponge to help you create a more blended look.
I chose the shadow duo called “Misfit,” which is a sage green and grey. But, it was a tough choice. For only $6.00 each, you can choose from a vibrant blue/white duo, blue/bronze duo, blue/dark grey, teal green/grey, brown/grey and more.
This shadow goes on smoothly and stays in place nicely – even after a nap. It doesn’t crease in your eye lids like some creme shadows do. It can also be manipulated very easily once it is applied using the versatile applicator. Try the sage green with the Hard Candy Glitz stick for a sparkling mermaid look.
These shadows are great for day or night!
