Hard Candy Lash Ink Review

Hello again readers~

Alright, I come to you bearing a review. To be honest, I was going to do this a few weeks ago, but I became really lazy to get the swatches and a proper review, but on to the review!


The mascara is packaged in a cardboard tube, sealed with plastic disks.

The mascara itself is just a cylinder tube, that sort of looks... how do I put it, edgy? Sort of fashionable with it being all black, and with the splash of silver and pink colors of the designs.

The brush looks like this. It doesn't look like there's product on there, but there is quite a bit. The formula isn't creamy, it's more of a liquid. Think of it like a liquid liner consistency.

CLAIM:

Mascara that won’t quit until you do. Flatter your flutter for 4 days straight! Hard Candy four day lash stain defies the elements. Paint Lash Ink on and don’t reapply for up to 4 days. Shower, go in the pool, cry, rub your eyes, or get rained on – your lashes will stay flawless no matter the circumstances! Perfect for a weekend away or partying all night long.

Day 1:

Freshly applied mascara. Doesn't add volume or length, just color. The mascara doesn't have a curl, though you can curl them with an eyelash curler after the mascara has dried to get the curled look. Doesn't really do much for me at this point.

Day 3:


I'm actually really impressed! I cried my eyes out for hours, rubbed my eyes harshly, stood in the rain for hours, sweated, took showers, washed my face, removed my other makeup: AND IT'S STILL ON. It gives my lashes the color that I love to have, and I don't have to worry about it wearing down, or off. It actually was a lot better than I thought it would be.

As far as waterproof/stain goes: 5/5. It stayed put for a solid 3 days, wore down after 4, and even lasted though a lot of abuse.

Pros
  • It lasts for a solid 3 days.
  • It is completely waterproof.
  • It lasts through being rubbed.
  • Doesn't flake off.
  • Once it's on, it's on.
  • Cheap at $6.

Cons
  • It doesn't add length.
  • It doesn't add volume.
  • If you get it on your skin and you don't get it off immediately, it'll be there for a long while.
  • The formula is really runny, and it's easy to mess up on application if you're not careful.
  • Will do nothing if you have darker lashes.

Overall: 4/5
It's affordable, and works like it should. Works through water and is really a tough mascara. The only problem I have, is that it doesn't add volume or length to your lashes, but for someone like me with pale blonde lashes it works great!

Thanks for reading~
