Hard Candy Eye Essential Collection Review (Holiday Gift Guide)

 

Hard Candy has released new makeup sets for the holidays which are available exclusively at Walmart. The Eye Essential Collection comes with 2 eyeshadow palettes, 3 brushes, and a small pouch and retails for $4.88.  “Fall in love with these purse friendly eye shadow palettes.  Create that smoky look you desire for an evening out on the town or define your eyes with any of these coordinating shades for a natural look.”

20161113_130835

 

I loved all 12 shades in this palette.  The colors go on smoothly with minimal fall out and are surprisingly pigmented for this price point.  I especially liked the purple shade.  In my experience, the purple shades in many pallets are among the weakest shades.  Not so in this pallet.  Each shade was distinctively shimmery and will help create some fun looks.  This is my favorite of the two pallets available in this kit.  The eyeshadow had decent lasting power; actually comparable to some of the higher priced pallets in my collection.  Swatches were done without primer.

In this particular palette, the shades are all very similar to each other.  It’s difficult to get more than one or two looks. Eight of the shades are silvery white shimmers. The blue and purple shades are the standouts here, while the two darker black shades are so similar to each other I couldn’t tell any difference, especially on application to the eyes.

The only brush I found useful in this kit was the eyebrow brush/comb.  The other two brushes were so stiff and rough that I couldn’t even get them near my eyes and face.  They may be going in the giveaway bin, but the pouch they come in is adorable and I’ll be using it to carry smaller items in my purse.

20161113_131016

In my opinion, the neutral shades palette, the eyebrow brush and comb combo and the pouch make this entire kit worthwhile and an excellent value.  I plan on giving away the silver/grey pallets to a young friend to play with.

These would make great holiday gifts! Please check out their website here for more information.

I was able to review a Build Your Own Sterling Silver 2-Picture Heart Locket.  If you do not want silver you can choose from 14K Gold Filled, 14K Yellow Gold, Or 14K White Gold. The locket I built in Sterling Silver starts at just $24.95 and goes up depending on locket size.  You can customize the FRONT SIDE of the Locket by choosing the Metal and Size, Bail Stone (we will add a synthetic bithstone to the Bail of your Locket) and the Design options. You can add Clipart, Text or Monogram to the front of the locket. I chose Monogram with both of my children’s initials which are the same.

IMG_5217

Once you are done choosing the metal, size and design options, go ahead to Step 2. Step 2 and 3 you can add Text, Monogram or Photo to the left and right sides of the locket. I chose 2 pictures, one on each side of my two children. The pictures can be either Color Laser Engraved, Laser Engraved or a Paper Photo. Prices depend on which you pick. I added Color Laser Engraving for each side which was a $35 charge for each side. You can either upload or email your digital pictures. If you want paper photos you can mail them. Step 4 is customizing the back of the locket. I opted to leave it without Text or Monogram. The last step would be choosing a chain for your locket (or you don’t have to choose one). If you decide you would like a chain you will have a few options with size options. You can choose from Sterling Silver Tip Black Leather Chain in different sizes, Standard Box Chain in different sizes or a Rolo Chain. I chose the Standard Sterling Silver Box Chain in 18″ length which added $25.95 to the price.
