Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer in Medium
I discovered this concealer at Wal-mart not too long ago when I was browsing the newest products by Hard Candy. When I spotted Glamoflauge, it automatically rang a bell as a product I’ve heard of before (unless I was thinking of Benefit Powderflage.. haha). So I quickly went on my phone and checked the reviews on Makeupalley. The reviews looked very promising. I fumbled through the rack to find my shade, only to find one left in the shade medium, which happened to be an opened box covered with concealer fingerprints. YUCK! Despite the dirty box from whomever swatched it, I decided to purchase it.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: A heavy duty, highly pigmented, multi-use concealer that delivers ultimate coverage. The formula blends seamlessly into skin with plenty of play time creating a flawless and natural look perfect for any occasion. You can hide everything from dark circles and blemishes to tattoos!
It’s quite unfortunate that this concealer only comes in three (3) shades, which is probably the only non positive thing I can say about this concealer. There is light, medium and tan. I chose medium, which happens to be a medium beige with yellow/olive undertones. In fact, the olive undertone is quite strong and can appear green on certain skintones. I have used it on myself as well as my best friend. She is middle eastern, with light/medium olive skin and it matched her perfectly, and she would be able to wear it alone. I on the other hand, would not be able to wear this alone, as the green looks more obvious on my skintone.
As for the product itself, I can honestly say it’s the best FULL coverage (drugstore) concealer I have tried. It covers any blemishes, scars on my face with no effort and covers my under eye darkness completely. The consistency is a creamy liquid that isn’t too dry and isn’t too liquidy. It’s thicker than MAC Select Cover Up & somewhat comparable to Mary Kaye or MUFE Full Coverage Concealer. Because the coverage is quite heavy, I would recommend moisturizing your under eyes well prior to applying this concealer so it won’t accentuate your dryness & look very thick. Some of you may find this concealer too heavy for your needs, and some of you may find it perfect for your needs. If you find it too heavy for your under eyes, like I mentioned, it’s excellent at covering blemishes. It’s said to cover tattoos, and I wouldn’t at all doubt it. I applied a little dab over one of my brown birthmarks, and it covered it completely.
The small pencil concealer is a cute little extra. It may not offer as much coverage as the liquid concealer, but it’s useful for defining the eyebrows or lips.
Overall, I really like this concealer and will continue using it for blemishes and under eyes. Again, my only complaint is the color selection and the undertone of the shade medium. I have to make sure to adequately apply my foundation over the concealer to cover up the green cast it gives me. Or, mix it with another concealer of mine. Other than that, I love it. I’ll most likely be picking this up in the shade light as well.
