Dark and sultry eyeshadow shades mixed with shimmery neutrals is what I first noticed about the Hard Candy Sassy Sultry Eyes Eyeshadow Palette that I will be reviewing for you today. It’s been a while since I have tried anything from Hard Candy, and from the looks of it, they have stepped up their game. But we all know looks can be deceiving…especially when the price tag is almost too affordable. (Don’t act like you don’t know what I am talking about. 😉
In the Hard Candy Sassy Eyes Sultry Eyeshadow Palette, you not only get nine gorgeous eyeshadows, but a black eyeliner and eyeshadow primer too. It also comes with a little sponge applicator that should be promptly tossed into the garbage… because they do nothing for applying makeup at all. Very flimsy👎
All of this is encased in a hard tin case that makes it rather convenient and easy to either stick in a purse or suitcase. I think the range of colors in this eyeshadow palette is perfect for taking a makeup look from day to night. There’s a mix of some soft everyday eyeshadows like the Social Butterfly and Innocence and also some vampy colors like Ms. Attitude and Banter. This palette also takes the guess work out for you if you aren’t sure what colors would pair well with what because all of these colors work well together.
Cute fun names and beautiful shades. Personally I feel the index card with the names really doesn’t do these shadows any justice. Most shades don’t look like the picture.
Having an how-to guide on creating the looks is a fun way to recreate a look and brush up on your blending skills and a reason to play dress up…like you really need a reason to.😉 Let’s at a look at the swatches below👇👇
Innocence: Beige shimmery shade good for highlighting under the brow bone.
Demure: Pale and shimmery lilac purple that could also be used on the entire lower eyelid. This is a beautiful spring shade.
Banter: Smoky purple shade that is soft and creamy
Sweetheart: Pale matte pink with larger sparkles.
Witty: Shimmery mauve shade that would be pretty on the entire eyelid.
Smarty Pants: A matte, medium tone gray that would look fabulous in the crease of the eye.
Social Butterfly: Creamy and shimmery shade great for highlighting under the brow bone
Angel: Gold green eyeshadow shade that reminds me a whole lot of the NARS Gold Lame from the Kauai duo.
Ms. Attitude: Dark black with gold specks in it, perfect for a glamorous smoky eye.
My Thoughts on the Hard Candy Sassy Eyes Eyeshadow Palette: I was pleasantly surprised, these are much better with the primer and a base. For the price of $5.99 you get a great palette with soft and feminine shades that’s flattering on all skin tones.
The old look…I prefer the new look and the removal of
I would say the only colors I wasn’t a fans of are…Sweetheart and Smarty Pants, because they were matte, which made them more flakey. I would definitely get the other 2 palettes if they are anything like this one. You can get this or the other two palettes at Walmart or Hard Candy website
