omg i LOVE this!!! you only need a little bit and it covers soooo well!!! its creamy and works great on blemishes and under eye circles!!!! theres not great colour selection but its still awesome!!! plus its only $5-6!!!!
I wanted to try this due to the great reviews and comparisons to the Kat Von D Tattoo concealer, which is also supposed to be really good. I am actually quite disappointed with this. Yes, it is extremely pigmented but its difficult to use it at full pigmentation without it looking cakey. I even use a synthetic blending brush to blend it into the skin or under the eyes but a lot of times it will still look cakey. I usually dispense it onto the bank of my hand, smear it flat against the skin, then dip the blending brush into the product. If I want full coverage, there is no way it will not look cakey. I have this in medium, which is a good shade match for my skin-NC25. However, the concealer is so yellow that it doesn't counteract blue or purple under the eyes well at all, it just makes the shadow look ashy. The medium shade definitely needs more peach in it. It's ridiculous because I have NC25 skin, actually I have more yellow tones in my skin than NC25 and I still find medium too yellow. How are the NW people supposed to use this? I would imagine this would be good on covering blemishes and marks but the ingredients in it are so comedogenic (ex. lanolin oil) that I wouldn't dare dream of putting it on blemishes. Good thing is that it seems to come with a whole lot of product and since its so pigmented, that one tube will probably last at least a year if not more even with daily use. I find that compared to my HG, Mac Studio Finish concealer in NW25, this is very lacking in color and texture.
Wow. I'll never need to buy another concealer again. I only need a drop of this, and I can spread it out for about half my face. My skin is very dry, and I've heard this is drying. I've actually found it okay, both under my eyes and on spots. The color is perfect, too. I was a little worried about this, because I'm really pale (think NC10), but the lightest color was almost a perfect match. It was a little bit too warm toned, but I can fix that with powder. My only complaint about this is that the cap is really strangely designed. It takes me about five seconds to take it off, I have to keep twisting and twisting and twisting.
I'm a MAC NC-45 and the darkest color (tan) is much too light for my skin. I covered concealer with my usual makeup and set w/ translucent powder. The concealer is thick and covered blemishes before it slid off. The search continues.
I really LOVED this concealer! It is a great concealer that has great coverage, I use this under my eyes and over blemishes. I really like the fact that it comes in a squeeze tube because it allows me to get the amount I want. Another thing is that you do not need more than a dot to get good coverage, a little goes a long way which means it will last me forever since the tube comes with alot. I also like the fun packaging it has which can be expected of all Hard Candy products.
I bought this concealer to cover acne scars and zits. First impression was that it felt super thick and greasy however it covered really well. The colour selection is soooooo disappointing, I have this in tan but it is dark for me but it is okay as I layer face makeup on top. It does take a while to blend because it is soo thick but I would never recommend this to use under the eyes, it easily gets cakey soo you only need a very very small amount. Great quantity for the price
this is was a great coverage concealer.. with those cheap price offcourse..
this concealer really good work for blemishes and redness or dark spotted.. but i found its look ashy when i apply it for under eye dark circle.. and it doesnt crease or cakey even you'r getting sweat..
i'm nw10 and the lightes shade was quit match my skin
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
This is a great product for undereye circles and blemishes! It really is a heavy duty concealer. And a little bit goes a LONG way. If you use to much it will
Look cakey. It only comes in 3 shades though. And it's about 6$ which is pretty cheap for how good of a concealer it is. And make sure to set it! Or it will crease. Overall I LOVE THIS CONCEALER. And will be purchasing it again. :)
BEST CONCEALER EVER! Most definitely my HG. It's only $6 and is full coverage, i can't find one thing wrong with this concealer. There is only three colors but i have it in medium and its perfect for me, i have no desire to even try any other concealer!!!!
Hard Candy's Glamoflauge Concealser is a set of two, heavy duty concealers, a liquid concealer, and a pencil. This concealer supposedly is pigmented enough to cover tattoos. Hard Candy is a former high end brand, sold at Sephora. It's now exclusively available at Walmart and Walmart.com. How the mighty have fallen. Hard Candy does not test their products on animals and makes their products in the US. Glamoflauge is only available in four to six shades, which is an unacceptably small range. I purchased this concealer at Walmart, in the shade Light, for $6 for 20g of product.
Packaging for the liquid concealer is a clear squeeze tube with tribal tattoo designs, so you know it's cool! Removing the black plastic cap reveals a needle nose applicator the dispenses the product in a thin ribbon. Packaging is functional and kinda cute. I wonder if the tube got it's tribal tattoo in the late 90's when it was trendy, or more recently, for irony's sake.
Before I move on to the bulk of the review, I'm going to talk about the concealer pencil. I don't know what to do with this thing! Hard Candy's included instructions say that it's for outlining your tattoo before concealing it, but I don't have any tatz that need concealing. I can't find any use for it. Halp? It seems well pigmented n'at, so I'd hate to just toss it out. No one else mentions the concealer pencil in their Glamoflauge reviews, so I guess no one else knows what to do with it either. Moving on to the liquid half of Glamoflauge.
Nobody was kidding when they said this concealer is intensely pigmented, and you only need the smallest amount possible. They're like the OCC Lip Tars of concealing I guess. The texture of Glamoflauge liquid concealer is very thick. The kind of thickness that comes along with rich pigmentation. At first it feels very creamy, but the more you blend it and work it into the skin, the drier it gets, turning almost pasty in consistency. Hard Candy says that Glamoflauge blends into the skin seamlessly. Disagree. Glamoflauge sits on top of my skin, feeling heavy, uncomfortable, and mask-like. No me gusta.
To be honest, I don't think Glamoflauge provides the super amazing coverage that everyone raves about. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but it's not Holy Grail good or anything. When it comes to under eye coverage, I feel like Rimmel's Match Perfection Concealer is better. Actually I don't think Glamoflauge should be used under the eye. It's too dry and has a tendency to cake and settle, which won't look very attractive. Though it may not be great for the under eye area, Glamoflauge does well at covering redness and pimples. However the way people talked about Glamoflauge, I thought it was going to be way more full coverage than it really is. Full coverage enough to cover my chicken pox scars, and the freckles left over from my childhood as a ginger. It doesn't. Not even with three coats. For the record, I don't normally try to cover up my freckles n'at, I was just trying to test out Hard Candy's "heavy duty coverage" claim.
Because of how thick Glamoflauge is, it wears all day long. I guess it's dryness makes it a moisture magnet though, because this concealer cakes like no other on me. It's also very stubborn when it comes to removal. A facial wipe, or merely washing your face does not do the trick. For this concealer, I need a cotton round with some oil based remover on it. I guess it think's its a waterproof mascara.
I forgot to talk about the coloration of this concealer. I have the lightest shade, Light, and in my opinion, it's not very light. It's at least a shade or two too dark for me. It's also quite yellow. This concealer tends to oxidize as well. It's not severe oxidization,but there's a definite orange cast to it that isn't there when first applied.
Another point worth mentioning is the oil. When you open your tube of Glamoflauge for the first time, you will not get concealer out of it. You will get copious amounts of oil instead. At first it's straight up oil, but if you keep squeezing it out, it'll morph into a bizarre, icky oil-concealer mixture. Eventually, you'll squeeze most of the oil out, and then there'll be room in the tube for you to squish and mash the concealer and remaining oil back into the concealer. It kinda freaked me out at first, and I thought I got a bad tube, but this is a common complaint in reviews.
I have really mixed feelings about Hard Candy's Glamoflauge Concealer. I feel like it's another one of those over hyped product, like Revlon Lip Butters or Maybelline Color Tattoos, that everyone gets excited about, and I find them to be only average. Glamoflauge covers well, but it's not Photoshop in a tube, like some say. For reals, I'm not sure how this stuff conceals tattoos if it can't even cover a few freckles with several coats. I'm definitely not a fan of the pasty, dry texture, or the pasty, dry wear. Removal is way harder than it should be fore any concealer. But on the bright side, it's a definite value win. You get a ton of product for a few bucks, and you only need to use a drop at a time. All in all, I don't think Hard Candy's Glamoflauge is a bad product, it's just not for me.
