Eye Kandy Cosmetics - Review & Swatches

Hi Everyone!
I am a big fan of xSparkage on YouTube and have seen her using Eye Kandy Cosmetics in some of her tutorials and thought that I'd give a couple of their products a go! Eye Kandy sell loose eyeshadow pigments and glitters plus a base to help the products to stick.

(L to R) Loose Glitter, Liquid Sugar, Applicator Brush

The first thing that I purchased was their starter kit which is priced at £23. This kit comes with their base which is called Liquid Sugar, an applicator brush and a loose pigment or glitter of your choice. The glitter base is great and not too runny. I have been using it to apply the glitters that I have purchased and with my loose eyeshadows from other brands. The brush is a little too thin and pointed for me so I prefer to use a larger, flatter, synthetic brush such as the MAC 249. I pick up a small amount of the glitter or pigment with my brush and place it into the lid, I then wet the brush slightly with the Liquid Sugar and press it into the product then apply to the eye using a patting motion. I choose one glitter as part of my starter kit plus another 3 colours which are priced at £6 each.
(L to R) Top: Cotton Candy, Honey Drop, Bottom: Sweet Tart, Candy Cane

Honey Drop: Butterscotch
Cotton Candy: Bubblegum Pink
Sweet Tart: Medium Purple
Candy Cane: Red-purple

The glitters are great and easy to apply when using the Liquid Sugar. I love that the colour you seen in the jar is the colour that you see on your eye. This brand is amazing and fairly reasonably priced! I love the glitters that I purchased and will definitely try out some of their loose eyeshadow pigments soon!
