Hard Candy Prismatic Highlighter

No comments :
Today I have the Hard Candy Prismatic Highlighter. This had the potential to be awesome, it really did. It's absolute crap, and I don't say that about a lot of makeup products LOL. How this got past the testing phase and onto the actual shelves of Walmart is beyond me. Now I know why I hadn't heard anything about it until I saw it in the store!
I'm guessing they were going for duo-chromey goodness like every other company is coming out with lately. In the pan it reminds me a lot of the Becca Amethyst highlighter. But as soon as I touched this, I knew it was going to be bad. It's super powdery, and feels like baby powder. It doesn't stick to your skin, so it's impossible to apply it. It also seems like it's not packed tightly enough in the pan. All things you DON'T want in a highlighter.
You can see from this picture I took after swatching it just once with a light swipe of my finger how powdery it is - now every time I touch it, a bunch of powder kicks up.

Again, this was just a light touch with my finger. Totally powdery.
You can make out a bit of pink and blue sparkles here, but that's about it. It does not stay around on your skin and just wants to brush off.
Here I tried to pile a bunch on, on top of primer. The result was a little better, but still not great. I definitely don't recommend picking this up, even if it is only $6. Not worth it!
