Hard Candy Eye Def Metallic Eyeshadow

Hard Candy has ten new Eye Def Eyeshadow colors out, all with a metallic finish.

The colors are:

  • Crystal Palace
  • Golden Earth
  • Jagged Jade
  • The Essence of Envy
  • Miss Enid
  • Knockout
  • Rose Amour
  • Fake Bake
  • Flash

If you haven’t used these before what they are are cream shadows that come in a tube container with a bent sponge-applicator. They feel liquid and creamy when you first touch them but then dry to more powdery finish and set fairly quickly.

Hard Candy Eye Def Metallic Eyeshadow Wand

The wand is fairly large and I find not that great. When I apply these I just get some product off the wand and use my finger. I find that to be easier to blend out than using their applicator.

As you can see, these blend out pretty nicely and keep a good level of saturation still.

They do set fairly quickly so you don’t have minutes and minutes to blend. More like less than a minute. But I really like all the colors and find them really pretty and fun to play around with!

For me, they don’t crease at all if I wear them over Too Faced Shadow Insurance. If I didn’t, they probably would within a few hours like everything else I have tried.

Availability: Walmart exclusive
