Lengthening Your Lashes with Hard Candy 1,000 Lashes Lash Primer

Hi everyone,

It seems like Hard Candy has made a big-time come back by reinventing itself and distributing its products to mass-market stores such as Wal-mart. Every time I shop there, I have to stop and stare at the Hard Candy display. The packagings are so gorgeous! Among the many products available, I decided to give the 1,000 Lashes lash primer a try. After all, my lashes are not that long and I guess a lash primer would help.

The packaging is really cute and sleek. For 6 dollars, I had to give it a try.
Wanna know if Hard Candy 1,000 Lashes lash primer works? Jump!

The mascara wand contains some sort of fiberize material. It is white but becomes clear on my lashes

I used 3 coats of ELF mascara. You can see the lashes are a lot longer and more visible.
I'm sorry for the lack of eyelashes on the "after" picture. It's my left eye, aka the one with puny lashes. Actually, if you compare the "before" with the "after", the later does look significantly better. The fiberize material bonds very well to my lashes. The texture reminds me of the one in Imju Fiberwig. Also, it makes the black mascara last longer and I see less smudges. One wonderful thing about this eyelash primer is it does not flake. For the whole time, my lashes remain long. It also holds the curl pretty well.

However, Hard Candy 1,000 Lashes lash primer is not a perfect product. With one coat of mascara, my lashes look long and natural. I find applying 2 coats of mascara will make them look bumpy. However, to counteract that, I have to put the layers of mascara on quickly and comb through the lashes. Although it is hard for me not to apply the third coat, I have to practice restraint. The third coat of mascara creates major clumps. On top of that, my lashes look like spider legs. Not cute at all!

So the question is: do I need it?

Yes, I do. With my straight and puny lashes, this primer is a life-saver. Although it is not perfect, Hard Candy 1,000 Lashes lash primer is still a lot cheaper than many products with the same function. With its price, this product works pretty well.

So, what do you think about it? Will you give it a try? Also, if you have a favorite eyelash primer, please let me know.
