NEW HARD CANDY SHADOWHOLIC 12HR WATERPROOF EYE CRAYON

What's up everyone? Hope you have all had a good week and TGIF.

Today I wanted to share with you a new product from Hard Candy which is their 12HR SHADOWHOLIC WATERPROOF EYE CRAYONS. There are 9 colours offered on Hard Candy's website, but at my Walmart there was maybe 4 colours to choose. So these were my picks based on seasonality.

 L2R: AFTER HOURS & CATS EYE
 AFTER HOURS
CATS EYE

 
I feel that out of the two colours "Cats Eye" stands out more on the eye and glides on just a hair smoother then the "After Hours." I feel that after hours will prove to be a great addition to any smokey eye look just giving the eye a little extra hint of colour that is often not as apparent with a smokey eye look.
 
The beauty of these eyeshadow crayons is that you can use it as just a liner or really layer it on the eye lid for intense drama or use a blending brush and blend it out which actually looks really pretty.
You can apply it to the water line to amp up your look further, but sadly nothing lasts on my water line, plus I find anything on there tends to irritate my eyes. So unless your going to an party/event this practice should be avoided for daily wear.
 
In terms of wearing for 12 hours I can not say if the claim holds true.  I don't wear makeup that long in a day any way,  but I think given the format of the product and the way it has stayed in place for the few hours I have worn it I am pretty sure it will last even longer, especially if you prime the eye first. As for being waterproof I suppose I will have to shower with it on or take a jaunt in the rain to see how well it holds up;)
 
From the swatches I did on my hand I noticed that the after hours tends to leave an ever so slight stain behind, so just beware. I am sure with a good eye makeup remover this should not be problematic.
 
Lastly I am glad to see that Hard Candy was one step ahead here by providing their customers with a sharpener in each eye crayon pack as not everyone has a large sharpener on hand and this can be a problem come sharpening time. However I would like to see Hard Candy bring out shelf sharpening versions of this eye crayon in the future. This method is more convenient and mess free and it would save money not having to also produce all those sharpeners.

  1. I always wanted to try hard candy but i am afraid. I love jumbo pencils. I am going to try one and see how it goes. I don't use them as a liner but as a base or a crease shadow. Thanks for sharing! :)
