The Hard Candy Look Pro Matte Eyeshadow Pro Palette is a 15 pan palette of matte shadows in a variety of shades.
The Look Pro Matte Eyeshadow Palette has a clear lid with a little studded portion on the bottom. The palette comes with two dual ended brushes, that actually don’t seem like crappy throw-aways. I’m not saying they are amazing, but they are soft and silky and they are brushes that you would actually use in a daily eye look. The size and shape of the pans reminded me of the super pricy Viseart palettes, as well as the fact that the shades are all matte. Hard Candy is super underrated, so I had high hopes for this guy. The palette is mostly neutral, but it has the pops of muted color like the red, purple and dusty blue. All the shadows have a smooth, soft texture but they aren’t buttery. This helps avoid any fallout from application. Swatching the shadows don’t quite do this palette justice. They don’t swatch super intense, but they all are very even to apply. Since I have fair skin, it can be difficult at times to work with intensely opaque matte shadows, so a palette like this is great for daily use. I think pretty much any skintone would benefit from the wide selection of tones in this palette. I would definitely suggest this palette to beginners or people that just struggle with blending out super pigmented shadows. The shadows blend out easily and are still easy to build up. With the three browns in the center of the palette, I often use a fluffy brush to apply them as a transition shade and follow up with a more dense brush to build up the color directly into the crease.
