Hard Candy Split Personality Eye Color Duo Review and Swatches

I have always been a fan of Hard Candy’s new line at Wal-mart so when I was sent a sample of their award-winning Split Personality Eye Color Duo ($7) for review, I was thrilled!

The Split Personality Eye Color Duo comes in a cute silver pen packaging that is perfect to pop in any purse or makeup bag. On each end is a cream eyeshadow that will last you approximately 50 applications, along with a built-in sponge applicator that you use to apply directly onto the eyes. Sounds pretty easy huh?

There are a total of 8 gorgeous, wearable duos in complementary shades. I have Dazed, which is a beautiful combo of lavender and silver.

The cream eyeshadow has a smooth, silky texture that goes on more like a powder and leaves behind a shiny finish. It also stays on for hours without creasing.

Although the sponge applicators are easy to use and work nicely on my eye area without tugging the skin, getting the eyeshadow (which by the way, is stuck at the base of the cap) onto the applicator can be really tricky and time-consuming.

Another thing I did not like is the pigmentation. The eyeshadow goes on really sheer and even though the color is buildable, you will get a wash at most.

So as much as I like the on-the-go concept of this product and the pretty colors they offer, I do not recommend it.

Overall Rating:

Hard Candy Split Personality Eye Color Duo is available at Wal-mart for $7.

  1. I agree. I love the colour but the quality is very poor. I don’t think I even got to wear it even once. The sponge tip broke off on each ends of the applicators.
