Hard Candy Ginormous Mascara Review

Hey kids, wanna cheap up the mascara routine? My new love, Hard Candy Ginormous Mascara for $6 bucks. Total score for longer, more ginormous lashes….what? You really didn’t think I wasn’t going to use the word GINORMOUS a few hundred times just because it’s so fun to type out and say.

Jump for the good word.

Honestly, for the price and the quality I’d say that this one’s a winner. It’s $6 and probably one of the better cheaper mascaras I’ve had the pleasure of using.

Here’s the deets.

It has a straight line plastic applicator, likey. Plastic applicators always apply product pretty well on my lashes as it evenly distributes plus combs out lashes nicely, this does just that. It offers very nice lenght, beefs up my lashes a fair bit, but I didn’t notice incredible curl from it but regardless I experience nice, dramatic results for it’s price tag. I’m not sure if this is waterproof or not but I experienced no flaking or smudging, it wore very well through the entire day.

Hard Candy Ginormous Mascara probably isn’t going to rock your mascara world and make you sing to the heavens but it will do exactly what it promises by offering great volume and lenght at an affordable price. It’s $6 price tag makes it even more appealing for those on a beauty budget. For six bucks this one performs very, very well and is worthy of a haul in my humblest.

Loves it!

Good stuff.

    I can’t remember if I told you, but I was fairly impressed with the Hard Candy Curl Up & Die, too. It seemed to be pretty good for a cheap mascara, especially when I wasn’t expecting much out of it.

    This looks good too, for the price.

    Your lashes look amazing! I’d be really disappointed because I can’t get Hard Candy, but that kind of applicator doesn’t work for me at all.

    Hmmm. I have heard mixed reviews on this one, but I think I might try it out anyway and just see how it does for me. Tell me, did you notice if it was more lengthening or thickening? I tend to like thickening formulas, since my lashes are already kinda long (some lengthening mascaras make them tangle in my eyebrows!!!)

      hey jen haven’t read many reviews on it yet but so far I likey. Especially for the $$! It thickens and fattens lashes up nice and offers good lenght as well. If you apply it slowly you might avoid the tangle haha!

    For the price this is a nice mascara. Doesn’t flake or smudge, I didn’t get a dramatic look from it. It could be because I choose the gold color, I was just shocked the color showed up!

      hey comrade def no drama in the gold, I got it too, but the black does a bit better :-D

    Hi there :) I was wondering if this mascara is easy to remove :)

    also, you said it doesn’t curl well. I curl with an eyelash curler and am kinda concerned if this will de-curl it =/ what do you think? Is the formula too “wet” and will uncurl them?

    thank you!

      Hi ichi it removes easily with eye makeup remover. I’ve never had a mascara decurl my lashes? I’m not even sure what that means to be honest. It’s not too wet, no. hope this helps!
