|Meteor-Eyes Baked Eyeshadow, Baked Eyeshadow Duo and Baked Blush|
Hard Candy Cosmetics is always a fun line of inexpensive makeup to experiment with. For this review, I received their Meteor-Eyes Baked Eyeshadow in Outer Space, a Kal-eye-descope – Baked Eyeshadow Duo in Peace and a Blush Crush – Baked Blush in Living Doll.
The Meteor-Eyes Baked Eyeshadow compact was the first thing I wanted to play with. The one thing I did notice on the Hard Candy Cosmetics website was their picture appeared to be a dark blue shade, which it is not. As you can see from my photo, this shade called Outer Space looks practically black. However, the color is so multidimensional with the way it changes with tones of lighter gray and silver and helped me develop a nice smoky eye.

Another way I changed the look was lining my eyes with a brighter liner and it really brought them out against this dramatic Outer Space color that also stayed on without creasing for most of the day.
The Kal-eye-descope-Baked Eyeshadow Duo in Peace was a more neutral lighter brown with a peachy highlight shade. This lighter brown and peach were the perfect backdrops of a delicate shimmer against the dark coffee brown color of my eyes. I had this shadow on without any primer and experienced no problems of it disappearing into creases or anything.
My last plaything was the Blush Crush – Baked Blush in Living Doll. Though this compact appears a brighter pink, it has some peach woven through to soften and give this color a more natural look. I thought this blush gave my cheeks a pretty glow without looking powdery.
In truth, I had a great time with these products and liked all three very much. Both eyeshadow compacts were different, but equally wonderful for achieving different looks without spending a fortune. The blush surprised me because it did look rather bright until I used it and found how the peach woven inside toned it down beautifully.
Judging from my experience with Hard Candy Cosmetics and the Meteor-Eyes Baked Eyeshadow in Outer Space, a Kal-eye-descope – Baked Eyeshadow Duo in Peace and a Blush Crush – Baked Blush in Living Doll, check these products out!
