Hard Candy and a Surprise in the Mail

This is amazing I'm posting twice in one week... woah lol~ This past weekend I visited my brother. One of the things I like doing is visiting his local Walmart store since I don't have any close to me. While visiting Walmart, I noticed they started carrying Hard Candy products. I decided to try two products from their line. The first one is a baked duo.
Product Review: Hard Candy Kal-eye-descope Baked Eyeshadow Dul in High Maintenance-064

Where can you purchase this: Walmart
Price:
$6

Made in China

My thoughts: One of the first thing that sold me is the modern, chic stand. I wish I had my camera with me, but the stand stood out compared to the other drugstore brands... hehe~ The second thing that sold me is the baked products. I've been into baked products for a long time and still am. :/

Now for the eyeshadow... it's very shimmery which I tend to enjoy. There aren't much fall outs which is great! It's pigmented but on the neutral side. I actually like it... wheee~

Pros:
* Cute packaging.
* Comes from a brand I trust.
* Pigmented but on the neutral side.
* No fall outs.

Cons:
* Wish they had more diverse color choices.
* Only sold at Walmarts.

Would I buy this again? Yes, in different colors.

Here's how the duo colors look opened.
The left side is a white/cream-ish color and the right is brownish-tan color. They actually make good color pair in my opinion.
Here's a swatch of the eyeshadow duo. The swatch on the right is a lipgloss I bought from Hard Candy which I'll talk about more later in this post... hehe~

I forgot to take a picture of what I used for this look... eek~ It doesn't matter I think you can figure it out... hehe~
Here's how the eyeshadow duo look on my eyes.


I bought another thing from Walmart from the same line, Hard Candy.
It's Hard Candy Plexi Gloss Glossy Lip Shine in Arm Candy-175. It cost $5 at Walmart. I love the pink/gold sparkles from the lipgloss. I added this on top of a lipstick today and it didn't show... lol~ :X


Today, Tuesday November 10th, I got a surprise from the mail. It was really unexpected! My friend from Canada sent me some goodies... wheee~
I've been wanting to try Ketchup chips for the longest time and I did today. Man now I know what is the rave about these chips... hehe~ They're delicious and I only have 1/4 left!!! I haven't tried the chocolates, but I will soon. I'm so excited as I type this... lol~ I'm actually drooling. :X
She also sent me goodies; Canada cards, two Annabelle eyeshadows, Sally Hansen Kwik Off, Gosh eyeliner, facial cleansing pad, and some candies. I've been wanting to try Annabelle eyeshadows, as well as, the Sally Hansen Kwik Off. Now I get too!... wheee~

Thank you friend! :)

Aw - how nice! A surprise package! I really want to try out this Hard Candy line but I don't think my Walmart carries it yet... or will ever carry it. I assumed once Max Factor is gone, they're gonna replace it w/ that but I don't think that is the case. Which means that I will won't have easy access to this stuff! I really want to try the duo w/ the pink & purple. And maybe a blush!

ooo i remember hard candy. used to carry them in a department store in australia, but i guess they weren't doing so well. i did manage to snatch up a blush :)

Blair said...

Awww, no Hard Candy over here in MY.

I heard that baked products are less pigmented. Is that true with the Hard Candy duo?

I love the gloss colour! It's such a lovely sparkly light strawberry pink. Loves it!

Ketchup crips? Sounds yummy!!!

The hard candy shadows look really pretty on your eye! =)

And is it just me, or does that Hard Candy lipgloss look a little like the new urban decay glosses (the pocket rocket or something?) O_O; Or did I remember wrongly! Haha..

And it's so cute that you got sent some Canadian memorobilia as well! XD

Ooh, nice color! Hard Candy hasn't arrived at my local Walmart yet but I've heard a lot of buzz about it already.

awesome hard candy review there, ahleessa. :) i love their baked eyeshadow duos too. i agree with you though. they need more color choices with the duos. i would definitely buy more. the brown duo looks very pretty on you. :)

when you mentioned on my comment thread about buying things out of the bloom sometimes, i have a tendency to do that too. especially when it comes in cute packaging. that's my weakness right there. hehe...

thanks for the review. oh, and yummy snacks too. ketchup chips are yummy. :D take care. :)

rasilla said...

lol I do think they chip WAY too easily, but bought a new top coat from Barielle which...I hope might do a bit better for ChG.
Anyway I couldn't resist cause it was a great deal...and...cause it was BLUE! lol I'm a sucker for the darker blues :)

Jannie said...

hey, ahleessa. among the hard candy duos, all i have so far is ab fab. it's the bright purple and hot pink one (well, a bit lighter). it's very pretty. :) i'm planning on getting others too. hopefully there will be more on the next trip to walmart. :)
