Review: Hard Candy 1,000 Lashes – Fiberized Lash Weave Mascara

Hard Candy Lash Weave MascaraThis is the first Hard Candy product that I have tried.  Hard Candy is a brand that is only available at Wal-Mart and is known for fun products with unique packaging.

My hubby was on the hunt for yard equipment and decided he wanted to check Wal-Mart.  As we made our way through the mega store in search of said yard equipment, we somehow passed the cosmetics section.  And “someone” may have gotten sidetracked.   And by “someone”, I mean me.  Who would’ve guessed, right??  I’m like a kid in a candy store every time I go through the cosmetics section of any store!

EVERY.  TIME. 

My sweet husband is very patient with me and has learned to just keep going and leave me to my “candy” and keep going with his shopping.  He knows I’ll come back when I’m done.  And if I don’t it usually means I’m still there.  haha!

So once in the cosmetics section, I bee-lined for Hard Candy and happily started to examine the products.  I finally settled on trying this mascara.  I love trying new mascaras!!  I was immediately drawn to the color Mermaid Teal and was also intrigued by the term “Lash Weave”.  What was that going to mean??

Pros:

  • fabulous color
  • fun packaging
  • affordable

Cons:

  • no volume
  • no length
  • does not stick to lashes

Conclusion:Hard Candy Lash Weave Mascara

This mascara comes in what looks like a squeeze tube, but once you take it out of the box, the tube is actually hard, just like your standard mascara tube, just crimped at the end.  I wish I could show you the picture of it that I took, but my computer is being finicky and won’t load it.  :-/

So how does the mysterious “Lash Weave” perform?  Well, I can’t really say. This mascara literally just slipped off my lashes.  I could see the beautiful teal fibers on the brush, but they wouldn’t stay on my lashes.  No matter how many times I swiped, they just slid right off.  I tried waiting a few minutes and re-applying to see if it would build up layers.  No.  I even tried layering this on top of other mascaras, to see if that would help it stick.  But no.  No matter what I tried, It would not stay on my lashes at all.  I have never had a mascara do something like that before.

This product was a total regret purchase for me.  😦

Have you tried anything from Hard Candy?  What was your experience?  Do you have any recommendations?

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Product Review: Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara

Rimmel Grow Lash MascaraI like to try new mascaras, especially when I find them on sale.  Even better if I have a coupon too!  So that’s how I came to own Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara.  This is not a natural product, but a friend had told me that she had tried this and liked it, so I thought I would give it a try.

Pros:

  • Dark black color, darkens lashes nicely
  • Nice size wand – not too big, not too small
  • No clumps

Rimmel Grow Lash Mascara

Cons:

  • No volume
  • Not much length
  • Smudges easily
  • Leaves lashes sticky feeling, and sticking together

Conclusion:

To say this is not my favorite mascara is a bit of an understatement.  Rimmel’s promotional photos with the lovely Zooey Deschanel are fabulous and gave me high hopes, but this just did not work well for me at all.  I did not like how it left my lashes feeling sticky.  I found mascara smudges under my eyes throughout the day.  Yuck!  The package claims that your lashes will be 117% longer if you use this for 30 days.  I couldn’t get past 4 days with this, so I didn’t see any difference.  Different mascaras work better for some people, so if you decide to try this one, maybe you will have better results like Zooey and my friend did.  I have tried other mascaras from Rimmel that I liked, like the Rimmel Sexy Curves, but this is not the one for me.  If you are interested in trying the Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara, you can find it at your local drugstore or at Amazon.com.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
