I bought this in the colour "Light" and when I have no tan to my skin, it covers my undereye circles because of the yellow tint to the concealer, but I need to go over it with something that's closer to the colour of my skin, because it's a bit too dark. But when I have a tan, this is perfect and I don't need to put anything else over it except powder.
Also, for those of you looking for something to do with that mini concealer pencil that comes with it.. try it on your waterline. It brightens your eyes without being as harsh as a white eyeliner.
I love this concealer! The reason why I gave a 4 was because I have a huge blemish on my cheek and it doesn't cover it very well unfortunately :( Anyways, I bought this a few months ago based on the reviews and I seen it in the Canadian Walmart newly added to the makeup section so I thought why not? I use this concealer under my eyes and I recently had a surface piercing that I had taken out and it left 2 purple dots so this covers that scar amazingly well too! I was plesently surprised! This is my darn well HG concealer as of right now!
I boughgt this product today, and so far i love it, it matches my color,feels light,and covers everything.. before i wear it to school I was wondering if it stayed on all day?
I have this concealer on, the Hard Candy facce powder, and the Hard Candy bronser. Please let me know ASAP if it stayed on all day.(up to 8 hrs?)
This concealer was one that I was curious about because the brand had been associated with a higher end, cruelty-free, and high pigment makeup. So after trying their eyeshadows, blushes, and other various things from their line, I broke down and bought it.
I had been eyeing and debating everytime I walked into Wal-Mart, thinking I have a drawer full of concealer. Is this concealor going to be worth what I could shell out maybe $8.00 more for a concealer that I knew worked. As many MUAers, I gave in because of my curiousity and search for my holy grail (heavens opening up and singing) product.
Bottom line after trying every greasy, too light/dark, greasy, cakey and let's not forget the "Please make me look 20 years older" concealer, this was pretty good. I mixed mine with my eye moisturizer or rather on top of and the product sunk into the darkness of my raccoon eyes, brightened the area, and used my eyelid primer for eyeshadows. The blendability was good with a concealer brush and patting with a finger, but I like using a brush. I always use the back of my hand to test the blendability and as a pallette to mix a too thick product or yellow out my concealer with a yellow based pigment.
The product being a light skin olive person in medium was great! I was surprised I thought I would have to work on the shading, because olive skin girls know how hard it is to get a good match, so your face doesn't look pumpkin orange, brown, or glow peach...even with the HE stuff! I think this is a pretty good find in a drugstore and no I am not prejudice about who, where and how much for a product. If it works for me that's what matters most. I do use Retin A lowest percentage and any weird skin stuff popping up or redness is covered by this concealer.
This product does tend to slide on my oily skin after 6 hours, but I teach and am running around all day. It doesn't have an spf, and I think it would be just fine being touched up. It's soft, blends well, and seems not to break me out. So these are great points. It reminds me of the coverblend makeup that I used to use which is super heavy to cover scars with my foundation. If you are needing heavy concealing for events, spots, or just to hide an imperfection to the max check out the coverblend products, which were endorsed by plastic surgeons. They can be found online and in HE stores.
Glamoflauge for the low cost, availability, and for an HE feel is well worth it! Watch how much you use and try it with a sponge, finger, and brush to see which method works for you. I love this and am happy to find a product that I know works. If you buy one, you better get two...because they are never in stock!
I bought this concealer because it claimed to cover up tattoos and I really needed a concealer to cover one of my tattoos for school/work. I saw a few reviews where this concealer actually did cover up tattoos so I thought I'd give it a try. When I applied it to half my tattoo, it did what it was supposed to do! Half my tattoo pretty much disappeared. I was satisfied. The ONLY thing I dislike about this product is that it doesn't have very many shades. I bought the darkest shade which was Tan and it was still a tad bit light for my skintone but nothing a powder foundation or something can't fix.
This concealer is by far one of the best! It says its a "heavy duty" concealer, and GIRL! it ain't lyin!! The price is awesome! (I think I paid $4.99) The formula is smooth, and blends well. It covers blemishes, dark cirlces and problem areas like you wouldn't believe! It has really long staying power as well! I will always have a back up!
This is a very heavy-duty coverage. I have lots of blemishes and acne scars to cover so I need something full coverage and this definitely is that. You just need a small amount. I use an ELF concealer brush to dab it on the spots that need covering. Then I blend out the edges really well.
I took off one lippie because there are not enough color options and while I use the lightest (and it's the closest to correct for me), it's not exactly right. But I use this under foundation and so the slight color difference is not noticeable.
I have been using this for months now. I sometimes try other ones (because I'm a makeup junkie of course) but I always go back to this one. :)
Retailing for $6 USD exclusively at Walmart locations, this heavy duty concealer does live up to the hype... somewhat. It comes in three shades: light, medium and tan. I chose tan to match my NC40 skin. I've been using this to cover up slight blemishes, redness and under my eyes. A little goes a LONG way with this product. I really like the packaging, which is tube shaped and has a tiny point opening for dispensing. It's easy to overuse this product because it's so heavily pigmented. You only need a teeny tiny dot to cover up both under eye areas.
This product does what it claims to do, cover up areas, even tattoos with about 3 applications for color by patting this on. My gripe about this is the shade selection. It's very poor and tends to lean on the yellow side. This is great for average cover ups, but under the eye area, it creates a gray cast on my skin tone, which has significant yellow olive undertones. I am also tempted to try medium because it seems more salmon colored. I will report back when I pick up that shade. It does work well at brightening the eye area, but to conceal circles, you're going to need a back up depending on your undertone.I don't really have darkness under my eyes, but tired days, I need a brightener. This really does the job for me. Blend-ability is kind of sketchy at best. It's very pigmented as I keep mentioning, so I find a patting motion works best. You might need to use your ring finger to warm up the product slightly to blend it out. I find a natural hair brush works better than synthetic because you want to be able to blend if you're wary about using your fingers on your face. Also, it CAN crease into small fine lines if you use too much. But I had no problems with this holding up in the Florida heat once set with a powder nor creasing issues. I used a primer followed by setting with powder. I would buy this again because I haven't come across anything that works well as this in terms of coverage.
It comes with a mini concealer pencil which works beautifully on your waterline if you're not sensitive. It brightens the whites of my eyes and makes me look more awake. The pencil is very creamy and easy to work with so I can see this working in a pinch for minimal coverage. I wish Hard Candy would sell this pencil by itself, I would definitely buy it for my waterline and makeup bag. I think it's a novel concept. But please Hard Candy, consider more shades! I give this a 3.5 star rating, but for the purposes for MUA, since I can't do that, I would stick with 3 stars. For the price, it's worth a try. A tube of this should last you a fairly LONG time.
Edited to add: I have been using my [damp] beauty blender sponge to apply this and have been getting a more flawless finish. It also makes the concealer blend seamlessly into my skin. I like this a lot more using my BB sponge.
I bought this based on the reviews here. I had to give this a try on my own. Wow, this is super pigmented! Since a lot of reviewers said it wasn't suitable for the under-eye area I applied it on some problem areas on my cheeks and my chin, it covered so well! But throughout the day, I noticed it left my skin really dry and patchy....really weird! I was soo bummed I really wanted this to work out for me!
I decided to give it one more chance but on my under-eye are and of course it covered well but I needed to see if it would start to cake up on me and it showed no signs of that! Yaaayy! I will say that you only need a *tiny* drop and thats all! Nothing more!
This comes in 3 shades, I bought the shade 'medium' which has yellow undertones in it, which I am ok with since I am an NC40. I would say this color works well for me right now but in the summer time I might need to buy the shade 'tan' so I can mix it with the 'medium' shade.
I would definitely buy this again! I really like it!
I was ecstatic to finally found one in my local Wal-Mart. I got this concealer in light. When I applied it, it looked cakey, even though I used a little bit. I know a little goes a long way. This product made me break out on the same day that I applied it...four pimples! Apparently, the first ingredient is petrolatum which is known to clog pores.
