Ranked #794 out of 1113 in Eye Shadow

Perfect palettes of highly pigmented, wet-dry shadows that instantly bring color & eyes to life! The formula has been baked (not pressed) on a terracotta disk, offering wet-dry benefits in a rich, colorful, long-lasting application that's never chalky. Apply "wet" for more dramatic, intense color, or "dry" for softer, more shimmery effect. When "wet" try the deeper tones as an eyeliner. For more information, please visit http://www.hardcandy.com.

The Eye Duo I bought is a baked eyeshadow in nude colors. It looked gorgeous in the store but I've now grown to hate (yes hate) Hard Candy products. It takes so many coats of eyeshadow to get a good pigment, it's money thrown in the garbage. When you do get enough pigment, it's too much. I'm very good at applying eyeshadow. There is just no middle ground with this one. Don't bother. It's makeup for teenager.

I love love LOVE the hard candy eye duos. This brand is very inexpensive compared to the effectiveness of the make up. I love how long it stays and the fact it doesn't affect my sometimes too sensitive skin. The colors are perfect for each other and wear beautifully.

It took quite a few strokes with an eyeshadow applicator to get the right amount of color that I wanted on my eye lid. You can use the eyeshadow either wet or dry to create a more dramatic effect or a more soft effect! ..I prefer to use wet as it gives thee ffect I WANT ....... Great to use when going out for a night on the town!

This is a great eyeshadow for the price and for a drugstore item . I have the one duo named Peace - dark bronzey color, and a light champagne/white color.

It is not as buttery as the wet and wild eyeshadow, but it does go on easily and stays on for a long time. It is also quite pigmented and although I use the lighter color quite often, I barely made a dent in it. Although they do not have that many options - only about 6 duos I think, I would consider buying this again.

I am also quite a fan of other Hard Candy items - good quality for the price.

I love this eyeshadow. I have the pink and grey one! I use this on special nights out, either going out dancing on saturdays or supper date with the boyfriend or going to the movies with the girls. It adds a nice pink color with a grey smokey eye. I love the texture because it goes on easy and stay on for a while. I would show this product to my friend for sure.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Hard Candy Duo Shadow in "Bad Reputation" OMG I use it every day. The cost to purchase was low and the quality for me was high. I would totally recommend this product to others to use...It's great to build it up a bit for the "Glam Eyes" for a night out...top it off with an awesome mascara and your eyes look hot hot hot! :)

This eyeshadow duo was okay for me. The color I got it in is "High Maintenance" and it looked a lot better in the pan. When I got home and swatched it, I was a little disappointed because it wasn't that pigmented and it had too much sparkles. I got it at Walmart for $6 which is a good price but I probably would not buy it again.

These are beautiful eye shadow duos, I only have one, in "Rock n Roll". It's a beautiful light lilac purple and a darker purple. These are so pretty when applied wet too! They last a long time on my eye lids without creasing and the color of mine lasts all day long! Pigmentation, overall quality, and price are amazing! I will be buying more duos from this line

I dont hate them but they are far from good. Pigmentation is so-so, and the colour takes a while to be build onto the lid. Its very sheer, so if you want a toned down look, I guess this would work.

I love the pink and white colors together, they are a good combination and look great. The color lasts all day and through a night of dancing at the clubs. Very good quality, and comparable to MAC. My only upset was that the two colors split apart and came detached from the little package they are in so every time I open it up I have to hold the colors in place and get eye shadow all over my fingers. :(
