Review: Metallic Eyeshadow from Hard Candy at BIRKEYE

Hey everyone

I was fortunate enough to receive some amazing products BIRKEYE recently and I am super excited to share this review with you guys. The metallic eyeshadow from Hard Candy ( they are stocked at the BIRKEYE online store along with some other awesome local and international brands) was undoubtedly new territory for me. Before I was a mom I was rather experimental with cosmetics but motherhood has made me rather conservative. Nevertheless I was determined to give these eyeshadows a fair chance. To my surprise, I didn't look as overdone as I suspected I would. However, it is still important that you keep the rest of your face natural.

 As with everything, not both of the shades suited me. While the blue shade (Electric 432) didn't look horrible on me, my eyes and I loved the green shade ( Jagged Jade 433) more. The packaging is really pretty and fits well in to even my smallest bag. The applicator also made the creamy product (it felt really good on my skin) easy to apply. Most importantly, it stays put all day but is super easy to remove at the end of the day. Both colours are super fun and easy to use. Perhaps I will do a make up tutorial really soon using them. Overall I would give it a 7/10.

                                     I am really a big fan of the simple but pretty packaging
