Blogtober* Top Ten Satin Eyeshadow Palette by Hard Candy (Review & Swatches)


Hey guys! Today I’ll be talking about Hard Candy Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette. Heads up that this post is going to be photo heavy, I’ll show you a closed up look of this palette as we go along.

I asked you guys what you like me review first and many of you requested for a review on the Top Ten Satin Eyeshadow Palette by Hard Candy. I always feel that the eyes are super fun!

So, let’s jump right in!


First thing first, I bought this lovely 10 pan eyeshadow palette by Hard Candy at Walmart. In case you don’t know, you can only find Hard Candy Cosmetics exclusively in Walmart. If you want to see what other beauty haul I picked up from Walmart, I’ll put the link here.


This palette housed 10 gorgeous shades and they’re gorgeous shades. I could stare at these colors all day. I really like the color selections in this palette.

A breakdown of the metallic shadows runs as follows:- (L-R) you’ll get a gold, greyish blue, bronze, greyish green, taupe, grey purple. While the other side of the spectrum which is the matte shadows, you’ll get a blue, brown, coral pink and dark taupe.I think these are so pretty colors for fall.


I really love the cute packaging and let me tell you, I’m obsessed with anything silvery and this palette just proves it. The cover has a soft silver cushion material with diamond pattern and silver studs on them. They’re pretty lightweight and a little flimsy.


For the price, this is a nice pick up palette without needing to break the bank. It won’t blow up your beauty world and let me be honest with you, this is a decent palette to get if you’re looking for something on a tight budget.

I imagine it’ll be something I might pick up quite often whether I’ll be using it alone or using some of the shades to accent another eye look!


These have soft, sheer color pay off but build easily enough. The metallic shadows are pigmented but a little powdery (you can see in my pic above how they kick up a good deal of powder) in my opinion.


Swatches on bare arm – no primer or eye base used when I did this color swatches. What you see is what you get directly from the pan. I think these shadows will look much more intense if applied over eye primer.

While I had an issue with a few of the mattes, the shimmery shadows were fantastic! Gorgeous, pigmented shades at an incredibly low price. I believed I paid $6.58 for this palette.


They wore quite nicely without primer on this look. It lasted me for a good 8 hours without any touch up.

Have a fab weekend!

    I love the palette. For some reason, I love eye shadow… but it doesn’t love me and I have the perfect big round brown eyes for it! LOL!

  6. I love the variety of colours in this palette. It’s a shame the matte ones didn’t have a good colour pay off. Whenever I use a shimmer shadow I always love to have a good matte colour in the crease.

    • For this line, they have several other nice palettes in different colors. You can check my other post where I talked about another palette “Birthday Suit” which has more neutral shades in it. Thanks for your comment Gryselle! xo

  14. it’s a shame about the mattes not having good colour payoff but honestly i’m in love with the glittery gold and bronze-brownish shade, if I thought I could pull them off I’d wear them =^.^=


  15. Those gold tones are so pretty and perfect for the season!
