My love of all things bright and glittery is well documented. For $5-6, the Hard Candy selection looks AWESOME! Unfortunately, it turned out to be a miss for me. I’ll review another shade that had texture problems, but I can no longer test the Glitter Cream eyeshadows on my eyes. When I tried, my lids swelled, stained blue, and stung to the point where I was almost in tears just removing it.
Having tested it on my hand with no ill effects, I can say that it DOES seem to stay put pretty well, even in the face of rubbing, and the overall application is fairly seamless(though you’ll have a hard time blending eyeshadow around the edges.) It’s a bit difficult to blend any kind of a soft falloff with existing shadow, or blend shadow over top, so I’m not entirely sure how they expect it to be used. I plan to use it for doing bright detailing elsewhere on my face, since it’s only my eyes it hurts.
Pool boy is a rich turquoise sparkle with bright blue and gold sparkles. It really IS a lovely color—but it STAINS the lid fiercely, and is a bit difficult to actually USE, even if you don’t have allergic reactions. It applies with a doe-foot applicator, and the product is thick enough that you really only need one dip to get an ample amount for use.
