I really like this eyeshadow because of just how natural it looks, the light side is a really nice all over color for my lid and then the darker side is a really nice crease color. I really like it for the nice texture and wonderful blending ability. I keep this at home for when I student teach because I can just use my fingers to apply this (yeah I know unsanitary) but it applies wonderfully using this quick application method. I would definitely buy it again in a heart beat if I ever used all of the product up.
I picked up High Maintenence and Secret Rendesvous eyeshadows on a whim and had not read any reviews. When I first tried them out dry I was impressed by the color pay off but was not blown away. Today when I was playing around with them I used a wet brush and was shocked at the difference in the color payoff. The shadows went on super pigmented and smooth. My advice is anyone who bought these shadows and does not love them TRY THE SHADOW WITH A MIXING MEDIUM it makes all the difference in the world.
I love shimmery, not glittery, eye shadow, so this was perfect! It doesn't last through my whole 7:30 am - 8:00 pm day, but I think I'd have a hard time finding something that does. I use the light shade on my lid and the darker in my crease, and it looks nice, not overdone.
This is my favorite Hard Candy eyeshadow color. It lasts all day and the color is beautiful. There is no fallout whatsoever and the highlight shade is perfect.
I am so glad to have discovered this brand at Walmart as they have such nice products for cheap.
This is my favorite item that they make as the pigmentation is amazing and I can create many looks with this one eyeshadow. If I am in a hurry I will just take a large eyeshadow brush and swipe it so it gets a both colors at once. Next I swipe on my lids an viola!
They looks super shimmery in the packaging but on they don't look that bad.
The colors are nice, but even layered over UDPP they didn't last throughout a typical work shift. The formula is just ok, but I doubt I'd buy again.
I took a chance on this eyeshadow and am glad I did. It seems to be the first one I have been choosing lately. Layered over painterly paint pot it lasts from dawn to dusk.
The colors in this duo are very pretty, but I don't think that they are anything particularly special or original. Also, I know that everyone has been saying that the shadows are very pigmented, but I found that I had to swipe my eyeshadow brush in the shadows a few times to get good color payoff. This may be because I just started using this product and it may become softer in the long run. The one major thing that I can't stand about these shadows is the smell. I know that they're baked so I'm assuming the smell is from that. I've never experienced any kind of smell from my other shadows by various brands (Mac, Stila, drugstore-Almay, CG), but whenever I open up the pan, the smell kind of just hits me and it is not something that I am fond of. However, I do think these shadows are a good buy because they will most likely last you forever and the price is so cheap.
I really like this eyeshadow, especially since it is cheap and very accessible at Walmart. I find that the Hard Candy line is pretty hit or miss for me, I either love what I try from them or hate it. But fortunately I have found many products by them that I loooooove and this is definitely one of them.
I think whether or not you really like this product will basically boil down to your preferred finish for eyeshadow. This product has great pigmentation, but is very shimmery, which I happen to love. If you don't really care for shimmer, this may not be for you, or you could use it in moderation with some of your other matte eyeshadows. If I'm doing a simple makeup look, I like to dab a little bit of the cream color on my tear duct areas and a bit on my brown bone and I'm good to go.
It is a baked product, and I noticed that when I first touched it, the eyeshadow felt hard, which was a bit concerning to me. However, after I swirled my brush on it, I found no problems with it not getting on my brush, and as I already said it applies quite pigmented. I love the colors in this duo, they compliment each other well. You can create a variety of looks by using them together or separate, and I even found that if I swirl my brush over both colors where they meet, I get a nice more muted brown/taupey color.
So overall, love this product, love the packaging and will definitely be repurchasing when it's out. I even want to try out some of the other color combos I'm so impressed with this one.
I love this eyeshadow duo! Not only is the packaging really nice, the eyeshadows are really pigmented and both colours are really pretty, wearable colours. Both are shimmery shades, without being glittery or having chunky sparkles. I'm really glad I picked this up and will definately repurchase.
