I had the opportunity to review the Hard Candy Eye Essentials Collection gift set. Upon arrival, I thought “what a cute package!” It immediately struck me as something that someone who is learning to experiment with make-up would really enjoy. Plus it is super affordable. Like, wow. $4.88? Really? I normally can’t even buy a single eye shadow color for that price.
Here is the look I created with this smokey palette. Keep in mind that if applied dry then you will get an application like mine. The color applies softly and somewhat in patches even with a good eye primer underneath. If applied with a wet brush or a fingertip I was able to get richer more intense color. However, this was a work day and I couldn’t get too bold. In short, it is an awesome pinch-hit beauty gift for the budget friendly.
Available now at Walmart.
