Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer ($6) is one I can use at the moment after one too many late nights and hey, for $6 bucks maybe it’ll replace my $42 YSL Touche Eclat. Uh yeah, that’s not going to happen but a girl can dream.
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer feels like a rerun in my makeup life as I have this strong sense of deja vu about it. It seems like something Hard Candy released in another life but repackaged?! I’m not sure why I feel that way but yeah…!
Take a look!
Anyway, Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer is part of Hard Candy’s Spring/Summer 2015 line up and comes in three shades which are Radiance, Light, and Medium. Not everyone is going to be able to take advantage of these shades as they all run rather super light. I picked up Medium and it’s more of a fair so yeah, the color selection is slightly off.
This comes in a click pen with an attached brush for application. You can twist the base and the concealer will run gently into the brush. I realize some people are put off by these brushes due to bacteria and I can totally relate especially since you’re using it near your eyes. But I have come to some peace with them and actually do like them!
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer Swatches (Medium)
The formula promises a host of t0 beauty benefits including:
- Reducing Puffiness
- Diffusing Shadows
- Softening Wrinkles
- Evening Skintone
- Eliminating Dark Circles
- Blurring Lines
They really did a stupendous job with the formula and texture of this product. It’s soft, it’s creamy, it hydrating, and it blends super easily. It’s such a shame the color is so pasty on me as I could probably get away with this for quickie concealer jobs when running errands or when I’m not doing a full face of makeup. It brightens very nicely but the product runs very sheer so if you have a lot to conceal under your eyes this isn’t going to do the trick. It will however, make a nice companion product to use on top of your favorite concealer to add a little brightening should you like. The formula didn’t crease into my finer lines nor did it cake however, it does wear for a shorter time on its own at around three hours before fading.
This might be good if you don’t have dark circles and your eyes are younger as it’ll brighten up and conceal very minor issues. However, older eyes, finely lined ones, and those with darker circles might not love the sheerer coverage it provides.
Unfortunately, the Hard Candy Sheer Envy Eye Brightening Concealer has a poorer shade range which won’t fit many skin tones. This kinda makes it a fail. However, those who do fit into the range might just enjoy this for quickie concealing jobs or more natural ones or as a companion to your favorite concealer or even as a touch up product to stash away in your makeup bag!
