i got this in abyss which is a sparkly black. worst eyeliner ive ever used in my life. BURNED my eyes on application. i didnt even get any in my eyes. i know how to apply eyeliner, ive worn blackliner every day for the past 10 years. the pencil was brand new. i didnt poke my eye. it just burned like crazy and i had to take it off. ive never gotten this reaction from any eyeliner ever. terrible.
I've been a fan of Hard Candy since their Sephora days and this was the first product of theirs that I've used since relaunching at Walmart and I was extremely disappointed. The only thing I liked about the liner was the overall appearance but it was unnecessarily long.
The liner was by no means what I expected at all—it was very pastel-y and rather "sticky." It was a pain to put on. I had the black one (in Soy) and it felt exactly like putting on a cheap, black crayon on. The most annoying part was the "long tip" which falls out easily. It smudges easily and was extremely hard to take off. There are much, much better and cheaper eyeliners out there.
I paid five bucks for this piece of crap?!! I was looking for a glitter eyeliner for prom and I came across this eyeliner stick with a lovely sparkly outside so I assumed the actual eyeliner would be sparkly as well. Nope, instead I get an ugly, obnoxious blue color with absolutely no glitter whatsoever. It looks like a two year old wrote on my face with crayon. I feel cheated beyond belief. Talk about misleading packaging! Never buying from this brand again.
this is my first experience with hard candy. i was pleased, considering i got it at walmart for around 5 bucks. i got it in santorini, a beautiful mediterranean blue. the application reminds me of almay's intense i-color (a favorite of mine). it's smooth, goes on easily, and comes out evenly. i'm pretty disappointed with the wear though; it only takes a few hours for it to smudge, even if i don't touch my eyes. although the color is fun every now and then, i do not recommend it for long wear.
I have this in soy. The only reason i got this was because i love the hard candy line. This product though upset me. I had to tug at my eye a lot because the liner was so hard to get any pigment on. I think it was the super cute packaging that made me buy it though cause they look like chopsticks but when i put this in my purse the point end broke off and i realized it was making the pencil look like it had more product. Also the price is $8 at my walmart. That is way too expensive for junk. I would rather buy a wet n wild eyeliner for only $1 because i dont have to tug with those and they have so much product.
Got this in a set with 2 mini baked shadows, mini lipgloss, blush, bronzer, mini brush, and small mirror. This liner, as far as I can remember is the WORST liner I have ever used. If you've ever tried to draw on plastic or glass with a crayon, this is pretty similar to using this liner on your eyelid. Firstly, you have to press very, very, VERY hard to get the product on. Painful. Don't want to be doing this to your eye. Secondly, it's a splotchy, waxy mess. I tried it on the back of my hand after the attempt on my eye to see how to get a solid black line (the picture above). It took a grand total of seven swipes with a lot of pressure to make a solid line. From left to right, 7 swipes, 1 swipe, 3 swipes. No way this is going near my eyes again. The only redeeming feature of this liner is the look. Cute pencil, but not functional AT ALL.
These eyeliners are cute, cheap, and pretty good quality being from walmart. These work best if you don't use them as your primary eyeliner, but rather for a pop of color or sparkle.
I have Wild Child (light teal blue) and only use a bit on my bottom lash line and it makes my blue eyes stand out.
I have this liner in "nugget," which is the gold. I was drawn to this product because of the packaging. It's super gorgeous! Unfortunately, the product is a complete "miss."
First of all, the product is so hard that it's actually painful to attempt to apply. You'd think that after going though that kind of trouble you'd have something to show for it though, right? No.
The pencil is so waxy that none of the actual color transfers onto my eye. I won't be repurchasing.
Got this in camo, a bronzey metallic green if you go by the packaging. It's none of these things. It does go on smoothly without tugging, but the color is an uninspiring dull brownish green, like swamp moss. Not that this would normally be a problem, but I let the cool, metal chopstick style of the stick let me believe that just this once, a metallic eyeliner would really look like the package color. Fail.It's nothing like it. For one fifth of the price, I can get a wet and wild stick that would work just as well. No sale.
I really hated this product : ( I really like hard cany cause they have really out loud products : S But this just was dissapointing. It didnt show up neither did the glitter it looked like I got a swollen eye. I didnt like it and it wore off in 5 minutes : / and the pencil was so cheap it broke the next day I brought it home : ( I wouldnt ever re-consider this again.
