Below are reviews and swatches of my recent Hard Candy haul!

The Candy Cream Eyeshadow in Queenie with matching Glitter Eyeliner ($5) comes in a white plastic sliding compact just like Hard Candy’s old Eye Candy Eyeshadow. The color is a gorgeous purple that reminds me of MAC Fuschia Glitter. Compared to most other cream eyeshadows, this feels more like a gel packed with tons of silver glitter. It goes on slightly gooey and super pigmented. Because of the gel-like texture, I would recommend applying it in a patting motion – if you blend, you will only end up rubbing the color and glitter off. I really doubt this will stay on well if you don’t use a base.

As for the glitter eyeliner, it is a gorgeous violet with silver glitter. It is very creamy and applies smoothly but the staying power is definitely not the greatest either.

Spotted! Hard Candy at Wal-mart with product prices at an average of $7! The new line contains 261 items which includes a tinted moisturizer, baked eyeshadow duos, glitter eyeliners, lipsticks, different kinds of glosses, mascaras, even peel-off eyeshadows just like the ColorOn Professional EyeEnvy Rhapsody ones you see at Sephora and more!

I used to be a HC fan back when I was in junior high (<3ed their nail polishes) so how could I resist?
