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.|

|I used 3 coats of ELF mascara. You can see the lashes are a lot longer and more visible.|
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.
