Hard Candy: A Drugstore Haul


This past weekend a new Super Walmart opened near me so we went to check it out.  It is HUGE and all of the makeup shelves were fully stocked.  :D
I had heard that they were carrying HardCandy cosmetics which is a brand exclusive to Walmart. 
I bought 3 eye shadows which were $6 each.  Two are baked shadow duos.  I’m impressed with them so far.  I’ve read reviews from Musings of a Muse that the baked blush was awful.  She really had to work her brush into the product to get anything to show up onto her cheeks.  You can read her review here:Musings of a Muse
These eye shadows are different.  They’re pigmented and easy to work with.  You can use the baked duos wet or dry.  They are on the shimmery side but not too shimmery to make you look like a disco ball. 
The 3-pan palette had three colors that are perfectly coordinated.  This palette was more matte with a little shimmer.  It also came with a teeny tiny black eyeliner. 
I didn’t have any interest in their lipsticks or glosses because the packaging looks a little immature for me but the eye shadows were cute and I’d definitely haul more.

Eye Love You


The Eye Love You trio has perfect colors for the office!  I love it.  You can also order these on Walmart's website.  What do you think?  Do you have anything from Hard Candy?

@Stacy: Really! This is the first time I've bought anything from Hard Candy. Apparently this new look of Hard Candy at Walmart is their revamped line. Did it change a lot from when you were a teen?
