Hard Candy glitter eye pencils

Back when it was acceptable to smear glitter gel on your eyelids and don baby tees, rimming your eyes with Hard Candy's glitter eye pencils was supposed to be a good thing. I'm ashamed to say that I still use Hard Candy glitter eye pencils (I prefer their basic black streaked with silver glitter; I think it's called Cyber), and have been for the past decade. 

But! I'll make my case here: Like Chanel nail polish in Vamp, this is a genuine beauty staple. It's the only piece of makeup I know that uses glitter to subtle, glamorous results that don't scream "pixie fairy" or "Tori Amos." It's subtle enough that you can wear out during the day, rather than a rave circa 1995. I think it has to do with the glitter granules, which are finer than what you'd see at a craft store.  The pretty, dark effects of Hard Candy's glitter pencils wouldn't be out of place on the set of a 1920s Hollywood film. 

Which is why I was sad to see that Sephora.com has discontinued selling the glitter eye pencils. Rest assured I will be stocking up.
