Hard Candy Natural Eyes Palette ♥ Too Faced Natural Eyes Dupe!1:02 AM
Hey guys! Just wanted to post a makeup review on something I've been using for about two months that I've been loving!
So, this Hard Candy Natural Eyes palette is old news, I know. I remember that I saw it when it first came out and got really excited because it was a clear dupe of the Too Faced Natural Eyes palette. The color schemes and everything are identical!
Overall, for $8 I think this palette is really nice quality. The shadows are nicely pigmented, and though they may not be the most pigmented shadows I've ever tried, or even as pigmented as the Too Faced shadows, I think they apply and blend very well. All the colors are very nice as well.
I don't actually own the Too Faced palette, but I've swatched it many times (I work at a makeup counter, and there's a Too Faced display near my counter… let's say I've been tempted so many times to buy everything!).
The palette comes with a mini eyeshadow primer, and a black eyeliner pencil. The black eyeliner works fine, it's quite pigmented and I don't really need it for anything except my upper eye tight line, so I have no complaints. I haven't actually used the eyeshadow primer, but I heard that it wasn't too hot so I think I'll just leave it in there for now.
I've been picking colors from the Natural Eyes palette for everyday work looks very recently, especially when I feel no creative inspiration. Practically all the shadows go well together, so I think it's a really good palette for those that have a little less time to be debating their eyeshadow of the day. And, as a plus, it has a really nice four matte shades!
What do you think of this palette? Have you tried it? I'm still debating whether I like this or my W7 dupes of the Naked palettes better. I also recently acquired the L'oreal La Palette Nude 2, (which I can't stop admiring but haven't actually tried) so expect a future review on that!
