I love this product! I have the Naturally Gorgeous Palette, with the golds and browns, because I A natural eye and bold lip. My colors were not chalky, but they went on smoothly. Yes they do take more than one swipe to get a LOT of color, but that's fine for me because I would rather build up my color, instead of getting a bunch on the first swipe.
The best thing for me besides the color and packaging is the price. At my walmart they were only six bucks. I like to look good, but I love a bargain, so it's win win for me.
This is my go to palette for a everyday neutral eye. I love how pigmented and beautiful these shadows are and I can make several different neutral eye looks with this one palette. The only problem I had with it was the goldish color creased on me...other than that I love this palette
So I bought this product. The colors we're so shimmery and it was only 6 bucks! So the next day, I put on the base that came with my NYC Individual Eyes palette along with this eyeshadow. The colors looked amazing for a smokey brown eye! So I went to reapply my makeup halfway through the day and....it looked like it did in the morning. The shimmer was still there and it hadn't creased!!! I'm in love!
When I saw the Hard Candy Top Ten Eyeshadow Palette in Naturally Gorgeous, I was stunned by the expansive, beautiful selection of neutral colors, which are mostly browns and a nice copper penny color.
What I found most impressive was the price. Ten beautiful eye shadow shades for $6.00. With so many colors to choose from, this is a hard deal to beat! A must have for those who love their browns.
I haven't started carrying it with me yet. The packaging seems sturdy but a little on the long side, which is to be expected with a palette of 10 colors.
This eyeshadow palette turned out really nice! I got the set with all of the brown/nude colors, called naturally gorgeous. I'm fair-skinned and have blue eyes and these colors really make them pop! The colors aren't like totally in your face, but they are pigmented. It seems like every time I buy eyeshadow the colors never show up, (even over concealer) but these do! Very happy with the purchase! :)
Naturally Gorgeous Palette - This palette has a real nice collection of shimmery neutral shades. Unfortunately some of them are a bit too sheer and the color doesn't show too well on the skin. But some are really pretty and pigmented! So really, I thought it a hit or miss with this palette. The price wasn't too bad, especially for a collection of 10 shades, but the packaging is another story. It is super cute, don't get me wrong, but it was such a pain to open! Every time I go to use it I'm afraid that my struggle to open it will end up breaking something!
I have the Green with Envy and Smoke Out (purples) pallets. They aren't absolutely terrible but I expected more. The color payoff in the purple pallet is just okay, nothing spectacular, and the grey/silvery colors are all pretty similar. The matte black on the end is useless, it's too chalky and has the worst fallout. The lighter purple shades are good but over all... there is just too much glittery fallout throughout the entire pallet.
The Green pallet is pretty bad, they swatch much better than they go on. I think most of them are too yellow. Again.... way too much fallout.
The pallets themselves are adorable and look like they would be good for travel, but the only reason I would travel with these is just so my better pallets don't get broken.
i so wanted to love these because of the cute packaging and pretty neutral colors.. honestly they suck...no pigmentation except for the dark colors..they are so hard to blend... and some fall apart when you put your brush to them...the only way to get good color payoff is using them wet will not buy again and will be returning :c
I remember reading many Hard Candy reviews raving their products. When I wanted some more "pink" eye shadows, I decided to try out Hard Candy's Top Ten Pinking of you instead of my normal picks. I was very disappointed about the quality of these eye-shadows. No color is visible unless I go over-and-over my eyelids with more product. It also was chalky, broke easily, and separated on my eyelids. The product faded in less than an hour. The packaging looks nice, however, the eye shadows are not firm enough to hold. I noticed almost every package at my Walmart had several broken palettes. I wanted a refund because of the low quality. I never got a return on my e-mails to Hard Candy. Low quality products and service.
Picked up the Naturally Gorgeous palette yesterday from Walmart for $6.00, as someone else mentioned, the packaging was what caught my eye right away.
All of the colors in it are pretty, they're all shimmer and have a decent range of light-midtone-dark shades. I haven't had any issues with pigmentation, they were all wonderfully pigmented and easy to apply.
One con I'll mention is that they are a bit... I'm not sure how to describe it, not chalky exactly, but a bit...grainy? That's what it feels like when you swatch them using your finger, but otherwise they go on fine. Blend nicely if you use a light hand, haven't had them fade (using primer and a base).
I'll be heading back to Walmart soon to see if they restocked the green palette, unfortunately they were out when I went, but that one looks pretty as well.
