I Tried It: Glitter Eyeliner
Part of staying for a few days in a different city that I enjoy is shopping for different types of makeup. Big box stores each carry different lines of inexpensive, fun makeup. While in Wisconsin, I met a brand I hadn't seen before at Walmart: Hard Candy. Their shelves are full of fun colors, glitter filled tubes and pencils with a punk rock feel. I couldn't resist grabbing a cute little tube of glitter eyeliner: Hard Candy Walk the Line Liquid Eyeliner in Licorice.
The verdict? A do. I'd give it 4 out of 5 stars. It's easy to apply with the brush that is attached to the cap and it has the perfect amount of sparkle - not too much for daytime, but enough for going out. I did have to apply around 3 layers to achieve the look I wanted, but I appreciate a product that you're able to amp up by layering. It was easy to take off with an eye makeup remover as well.
I'd say it's worth picking up to add a little fun to your look. It's available in other colors as well and under $5 a pop.
What's your favorite big box makeup item?
