Hard Candy Naturally Naughty Review & No Brush Makeup Tutorial

Hard Candy products are only available in Walmart and some of their products have been quite popular in the beauty community. Today I'm sharing a set that I recently purchased for about $8 at Walmart. It comes with 2 kal-eye-descopes eyeshadows, an eyeshadow primer, lash tinsel, take me out liner, & ginormous lash mascara.

I will be using my fingers for all the makeup application today. You certainly don't have to own brushes to do your makeup in you're on a budget! It's really quick and easy.

I applied L'oreal True Match Lumi Foundation and blend it out with my fingers. This colour was a bit too dark for me just about a month ago, but now it matches my skin perfectly.

BEFORE (with foundation)

Firstly, apply a thin layer of the eyeshadow primer on your lids.

Hard Candy Eyeshadow Primer

Use your clean ring finger and pick up the lighter eyeshadow and apply it on the inner 2/3 of your lids.

Then use another finger and apply the darker shade on the 1/3 outer part of your lids. Blend lightly with another clean finger. You'll realise that the application is fairly smooth and seamless with fingers!

Eyeshadows complete

Line your upper lash line and 1/3 outer corner of your lower lash time with a brown liner.

Hard Candy Take Me Out Liner

Apply mascara and layer it with the glitter mascara provided.

Complete your face with your favourite blush and lip colour. Here I used an ELF All Over Stick as my blush/ highlight.

Although Hard Candy products are cheap, some of them are not that great in quality. Some of the products that are lacking in this set are:
  1. The lighter colour of the baked eyeshadow. It was quite hard to pick up the colour, maybe foiling it would be the only way for it to be more vibrant.
  2. Take Me Out Eyeliner. The pencil is quite drying, more like an eyebrow pencil than eyeliner.
  3. Ginormous Lash Volumizing Mascara. It does nothing for my lashes. 
The 2 other products are decent but there is nothing special to say about it. Overall I would say give this set a pass unless you really want to try it out for yourself.

I do not like to provide negative reviews but I feel that it is important for companies to know that their products need improvement and consumers should not waste money on cosmetics that don't work.


  1. I love Hard Candy and almost bought one of these as a gift- glad to hear its not worth, I'll def skip it!

    1. Hi there! Definitely give this a miss.. Especially as a gift! There are definitely better sets out there :)
