I have to say, I *love* this mascara! Although this is one of the first mascaras I've ever tried out, I think I've found my #1 already. I have very short and stiff Asian eyelashes. In addition to that, I always felt that they were very sparse (or at least I thought so before I started using mascara).

Curled with Hard Candy Ginormous Lash Mascara
I've read in many forums to never curl your lashes after applying mascara, but I can't help it. My lashes are so wired stiff that right after applying mascara, they would go all straight again. I've never pulled any of my eyelashes out from doing this and it helps if you let your mascara dry before you curl it again.

Can you tell the difference?
I make an effort to read other people's review before going out and buying and many people have said that this mascara is nothing special. I was expecting it to come with a plastic applicator because this was what I saw in some of the pictures. But let me show you what mine looked like:
I think the applicator was probably the secret to the ginormous lashes that Hard Candy was trying to achieve.
The only thing that bothered me about this mascara is that by the end of the day, some of the mascara gets transferred to the bottom eyelid. However, this pretty much happens to me with any mascara. Other than that, I love the effects that this mascara gives me!
