Mascara Fun : Hard Candy 1000 Lashes


Today I went to Wal-Mart and of course walked in the make up isle... AND GUESS WHAT I FOUND!? Hard Candy! I know it's been out in the United States for ever, but it's a premiere here!

The first thing I got are these babies:
As you can see, these are the Hard Candy 1000 Lashes Fiberized Lash weave mascara in Heartthrob Pink and Divine Purple.
Heartthrob Pink
Divine Purple
So yeah. Since I had them BOTH on right after I got them and I managed to cry with them on, I think I can do a review. First I'll let you know what the packaging claims.
-'' Fiberized Lash weave mascara '' 
-'' Infuse with volume building fibers that thicken and lengthen lashes ''
-'' We love our animal friends. We don't test our product on them ''
Now onto the pros and cons

Pros :
-It is fun to have colored mascara, it spices up any look
-They're available in many many colors, including traditionals like black and brown
-They're cheap and easy to find ( is there a place in the world without a Wal-Mart invasion?? )
-They stayed up pretty good when I cried
-The fiber in it really lenghten my lashes ( pictures a little further )
-They hold my curl ( hold, not magically create one, I need to curl my lashes before applying )
-They don't test on animals, always a must!
-Not clumpy
Cons :
-It doesn't thicken that much
-You need to build it up a little for it to show up perfectly
-Can be hard to pull off
-The type of brush ( the more natural bristle kind ) is not my type really...
-Product builds up at the tip of the wand, which can be irritating

Quality : 4/5
For the price ( around 6 $ ) I can't complain. It does pretty much what it claims, and it shows up  
Packaging : 5/5
Come on. It's Hard Candy. They're known for their pretty darn cute packaging with details all over!

Price : 5/5
Cheap and works! Can't asked for more. 

Total : 14/15
Looking for a good colored mascara under 10 $ Go for it! :)
