Hard Candy Meteor-Eyes Black Hole Review and Swatches
Missed the boat on MAC Style Black? I sure hope not as Cinderfella was such an awesome shade!
No worries, don’t panic. Style Black is long gone but Hard Candy Spring 2010 is here and has a super cheap version of Cinderfella….dupe-tastic anyone?
I really wanted to love on the Hard Candy Kal-Eye-Descope Baked Eyeshadow Duos but sadly…I dunno something was really off about those guys. I only tried one shade but pigmentation was zero and the formula was just really a pain to work with.
However, no such probs with the new Hard Candy Meteor-Eyes Baked Eye Shadow!
What are they?
Sparkling, dazzling, highly pigmented shades of baked shadow available in seven shades for $6 bucks each!
I tried out Hard Candy Meteor-Eyes in Black Hole and it’s a damn great dupe for MAC Cinderfella. Only difference? MAC’s version comes across as a more grayer shade of black and Black Hole is more of a truer black shade.
Formula is quite pigmented on this and it blends fairly well with plenty of silvery shimmer in the mix of things. Although a baked shadow you won’t experience any problems with the color as it has a nice smooth, silky texture. You can use wet or dry if you desire. I find wet creates a dramatic look but is a tad messy at times.
Probably the best part about the shadow is the fact they have it available in seven shades. It’s as if you get an extension of the shades released with MAC Style Black. Shades include Black Hole (Black), Aesteroid (Blue Teal), Space Cadet (Emerald), Intergalactic (Bronze), Lunar Eclipse (Dirty Gold), Supernova (Purple), and Outer Space (Gray).
Price is a mere $6 bucks!
You’ll experience major fall out but hey, same prob with MAC Mineralized Shadows. The shadow is easily built up but if you over blend it’s easy to rub the color away from the lid rather quickly so I do suggest trying to use these as single shades rather than combined with several different eyeshadow colors.
Who Might Love ‘Em?
- Anyone who was wishin’ for more shades from the MAC Black Style release.
- Anyone who loved the MAC Black Style Eyeshadows!
- Anyone who likes pigmented, baked eye shadow formats!
- Anyone who desires a little sparkle in their shadow.
- Anyone who likes a smoky or a colored smoky eye look (these would do you well at creating a rather awesome smoked out eye).
Who Might Not Love ‘Em?
- Shimmer haters!
- Anyone who can’t cope with fall out woe.
For $6 bucks? You need them all. Too good a deal to not pick up. Very much a likey and a Muse Approved for purchase.
Now I seriously need to get my hands on the other shades….Hard Candy has tweeted that Spring/Summer 2010 will be at Walmart or is at your local Walmart already. Just be patient, it’s a coming kids.
