My Experience with Hard Candy Raining Men Top Ten Trendsetter Eyeshadow Palette:
My sister visited the US in December and I asked her to get her hands on some drugstore products (thanks for your suggestions at IMBB discussion forum!). She got me loads of stuff and this Hard Candy eyeshadow palette was one of them. This palette has outer leather packaging which is way too cute and has 10 different shades along with a small mirror and two sponge tip applicators which can be used for applying lid shades. I have been using this palette since February and am totally obsessed with the colors. It retails for around $6 which makes it a steal for such a good palette.
The shades are pretty diverse and range from mattes to shimmers to metallics. The shades are bit powdery, but work well if you have a primer underneath. The shades are pretty pigmented and blend easily with a soft blending brush which makes the palette all the more worth buying. All the 10 eye shadows in the palette are a perfect amalgamation of metallics, shimmers and solid textures which make it a perfect palette to use it for parties. Since there are no names for each shadow I will be describing each one of them by giving a number:
Shade 1 is a tan, peach, chalky color with loads of shimmer. It’s more like a dusty, pressed pigment.
Shade 2 is a pretty purple pigmented color with a plum undertone.
Shade 3 is a cool metallic silver color.
Shade 4 is a deep navy with a silver shimmer.
Shade 5 is a chalky dark brown. It is little less pigmented than other shades.
Shade 6 is a rich golden-ish copper which looks really beautiful on the crease line. By far, my favorite in the lot!
Shade 7 is a cranberry-reddish color which pops up the eyes really well.
Shade 8 is a champagne pink color which I use for highlighting the brow bone and cheek area. More like a pressed pigment.
Shade 9 is a stunning deep green with shimmer undertone.
Shade 10 is a lime green color which I prefer to use at the inner corners of my eyes.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Hard Candy Raining Men Top Ten Trendsetter Eyeshadow Palette Review?
Yes, I would definitely recommend considering the price and variety available in the market. This palette is a must have for those searching for a great shimmery, metallic palette. I would certainly like to try other matte shades as well. It’s worth the money at $6. Make sure you pick it up or ask somebody to fetch this one from Walmart super soon!
