Hard Candy Ginormous Lash 086 Mudslide Mascara Review, Pictures, Swatches

Dramatic poster for a dramatic mascara!

Ginormous Lash mascara is yet another product I really wanted to try from Hard Candy, and since I don’t own any brown mascara, I grabbed 086 Mudslide in hopes that it looks nice and natural on my lashes for those days when I want to look like I’m not wearing any makeup.

Hard Candy promises to “fatten your flutter with this lash-plumping formula [and] large brush, with a slightly tapered edge, [that] reaches from root to tip for truly bat-worthy volume and glamour”.

I’ll start by saying that the tube itself is quite large and contains considerably more product than most others I’ve come across, which is great news for those who use mascara several times a day. Many of us, however, only apply it once in the morning, so all of this extra volume is wasted, because it will likely dry out or go bad before we have a chance to use it up, but I guess it’s always nice to have options.

Formula-wise, this mascara falls on the gooey side. You know how sometimes you open a tube and it just looks wet and runny? This one seems more dense, so I almost expected it to start clumping on me. Luckily, the wand was chosen really well, after hugging the stopper it has just the right amount of product to ensure clump-less application. The pigmentation is pretty decent, too, and my lashes looked very close to the color on the wand.

Longevity is just what I’d expect from a decent mascara, as I experienced no fading or smudging from the moment I applied it in the morning, and until I took it off in the evening. I should also mention that I have oily eyelids, so many mascaras give me raccoon eyes, but this one didn’t.

086 Mudslide is a lovely dark brown shade that makes my lashes look very defined and fluttery, which is perfect for my favorite no makeup makeup look. For comparison, if you like Jane Iredale’s Open Your Eyes, you are going to like this one, too.

I found a couple flaws worth mentioning. First of all, this mascara doesn’t hold curl very well, so if you like curling your lashes, you might want to avoid this one. And another con is the lack of lash lengthening properties. If you read the description on the box, Hard Candy promised to deliver dramatic length and volume, so if you are looking for a multi-tasking mascara, this is not the one.

Ginormous Lash is yet another nice product from Hard Candy. Its oversized wand ensures that the pigmented formula goes on without clumps, while defining the lashes for extra volume, however, it doesn’t seem to hold curl very well, nor does it add much length.
