Spring finally feels like it’s here in Indianapolis, Indiana and I’m too excited. I’m ready to pull out my maxi dresses and play in pastel makeup colors. So spring time right! Recently, I was sent the Hard Candy Matte Eyeshadow And Metal Eyes palettes from their Look Pro Line. I am a long time fan of Hard Candy Cosmetics, so I was thrilled about working with them. Plus, the palettes are super gorgeous!
Look Pro Matte Eyeshadow Palette ($10)
This palette is so versatile and has a very unique color scheme. The palette contains 15 matte eyeshadow shades and two double sided eyeshadow brushes to give you a total of four. I must say, this palette is bad at all. I dig matte palettes and nothing is better than finding a palette as verse as this one. It has a row of light matte shades, some nice warm shades, cool shades and even some popping deep shades. How’s that for choices, huh?
For the formula, it’s ok. It’s definitely not too bad for a drugstore brand. The formula is smooth and creamy. The shadows blend very nicely. However, when you use a brush they aren’t as pigmented. You have to pack it on. The only thing I don’t like is that these are a bit powdery and you will have some fallout. Overall this is a good palette for the price.
Look Pro! Metal Eyes Palette ($8)
This dry-to-wet eyeshadow quad is brilliant. Hard Candy really out did themselves with this kit. It has everything you need for a sultry metallic look all in one place. The kit includes four shimmering shadows, a nice dual-ended shadow brush, one black eyeliner pencil, mixing pan, and an eyeshadow mixing liquid. The liquid is magnificent, it helps turn dull, dry shades into something you might see in Vogue Magazine. The entire kit is about the cost of a latte at you favorite coffee house.
