I picked this product out because the vibrant colors (which Hard Candy delivers in the majority of their products.) When on they did not go on smoothly and clumped up while on the lid. As well did not blend well. It was a waste of $$ to say the least and ended up going back and purchasing different eyeshadow.
It clumps so bad. I love trying new cream shadows, but this was more like pasty glue. you could not work easily with it, and honestly I just ended up making a giant mess. This was not a wise buying decision.
I am always searching for good cream eye shadows and I think these are ok. You have to layer them, as in put a think layer, let dry, add another layer, let dry etc. If you don't layer the product it will clump and not look smooth over the entire eye. I've worn these alone with a primer with no powder shadow on top and I think they look lovely and stay for about a 8 hour period.
This shadow works well if you want one intense color on your lid. I have the pink one and it goes on vibrant and if you allow it to dry before opening your eye it will last all day and not crease. It takes patience and skill to use and a little makeup remover on a q-tip will help with any unfortunate accidents.
