Hard Candy Take Me Out Liner - TRUFFLE || Review, Swatches & EOTD

Happy Janmashtami, everyone ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hope all of you are having a great time with your family and friends ๐Ÿ’• Today, I am going to talk about a glitter pencil eyeliner that belongs to Take Me Out Liner range of the brand Hard Candy. I received the shade Truffle as a surprise gift (freebie) in my Lady Raga Subscription bag last year. Read ahead to know whether this pencil eyeliner is worth trying or not!

My Experience with Hard Candy Take Me Out Liner, Truffle Shade:

Initially, I was elated upon receiving this surprising product but after using this for a couple of times, I found it to be the worst!! Packaging wise, this is a simple wood sharpenable pencil that comes with a tight plastic cap. Though, the original  pencil liner comes complete with a pencil sharpener on the cap for convenient sharpening. I didn’t travel with it, so can’t comment on how travel-friendly it is!

Coming to the texture of this liner, it has a creamy texture with gold sparkles and looks chocolate brown  in colour.

When I applied it on the back of my hands, it glided on smoothly showing up a good amount of pigmentation with proper golden glitters whereas, on my lids, it takes a great effort to apply or blend, leave alone deep pigmentation๐Ÿ˜’ It’s a hassle to draw a perfect line with this eye pencil but thankfully it didn’t irritate my eyes when applied along the waterline.

 After numerous swipes!!

Only one decent picture!

At times, I tried to smudge it for smokey effect but to my dismay, the colour pay off is too poor to show up. You need to struggle literally to bring out the true pigmentation from this shade, it requires numerous strokes. Moreover, the glitters look patchy, uneven as they never spread uniformly๐Ÿ˜ž It doesn’t stay for long; the shade almost disappears after 2-3 hours of application without touching. Such a dud!!

Is there anything on my eyelid?? 

Plus Points:         

  • Low, cheap price
  • Soft brown colour
  • Cruelty-free
  • No artificial smell
  • No stinging
  • Easy to remove
  • Pencil is shade matched so easy to spot from many shades
  • Hygienic as it requires sharpening! 

Minus Points:

  • Cheap quality
  • Poor colour payoff
  • Doesn’t go on smooth on the lids at one go
  • The shade looks unnoticeable even after hell lot of layering, tugging & pulling
  • Glitters do not spread uniformly
  • Doesn’t stay long
  • Not smudge proof
  • Again waste of product because you need to sharpen it after every use.

Rating: 2/5

Conclusion:

Be on dry or oily eyelids, this pencil eyeliner is hard to work with owing to its creamy finish and cheap quality. I agree this is so budget-friendly but at the same time, I would prefer at least nice pigmentation from any liners of this range. I wish it had no glitters, anyway I will not recommend this shade to anyone because at this price you can get some other good stuff easily!!

Hope you find my review helpful.

See you soon
