I tried to find this in Walmart last night and there wasn't even a spot for it, so I freaked out and stocked up on their website. I LOVE this concealer. You only need a very very small amount to get complete coverage because this is super pigmented. I use it on acne, red marks, and scars, and apply it with a very very tiny brush and blend the heck out of it. I love that it's in a tube instead of those gross wands because it is more hygienic that way. Because I use so little (maybe a drop the size of a pinhead every day), and because the package is relatively huge, it is going to last forever. Usually I wear it in Light, but in the summer I've been mixing it with a little Medium to match my skin tone. The only issues I can see are that the shade selection is so limited, and it might be getting discontinued if there's not a spot on the display for it. That will be a tragic day.
I actually love this. I've heard people having issues with this being too greasy/oily, too heavy, and, not covering well. This happens to be my favorite concealer. I use it to cover blemishes and redness I have SUPER oily skin, and, this did not seem to heavy for me at all. It covers beautifully, and, isn't cakey. This concealer reallt is heavy duty! It's so pigmented, so, it covers fabulously! (Not like a green Physicians Formula concealer I had that was TOO pigmented and turned my skin green.) When I use this, almost all pimple redness and hyperpigmentation is diminished from my face. One downside is that they only have this in three different shades, which, kind of sucks, but, for me, the lightest shade is a good match. Also, it costs $8 at Wal-Mart. This is pretty expensive for a drugstore product, but, it is definately worth it, because, it is as good quality as a high end concealer. Overall, definately worth it, 5 lippies!
This concealer is NOT for everyone - that's for sure. I initially bought it because I have terrible dark circles, and I have heard good things about this concealer. I made the mistake the first time of applying too much. Learned my lesson: less is MORE! You just need s very small amount to get great results. It covers up my dark circles and leaves them covered up all day. I've used it every day since I bought it and the bottle is still essentially full. Just remember to set it in with powder. If you don't, the results could get messy. Before I bought this I used Benefit's "Boi-ing" concealer and I must say I like this much more! For about a fourth of the price. So if you're in need of a TRULY "heavy duty" concealer - it's a must have!
Great product. It is durable and extremely pigmented. Im glad I didn't spend 18 dollars on Benefits boi ing concealer which doesnt even cover this well. The only downside is the shade selection. I am Med skinned/ olive hispanic and i feel like the medium shade makes my undereyes look "ashy" . The tan seems to be too dark but that may end up working for me in the end.
I think this is a great concealer for the price. I bought this in "Light" on the WalMart website for $6 + tax and free shipping. It comes in a clear plastic box with a mini concealer pencil in the same shade.
She color selection is very limited; only three shades to choose from -- light, medium, dark. They have a bit of a warmer undertone (a little on the yellow/orange side). I did not look up the ingredients list before buying this, and as someone who is acne-prone, I was a little bit surprised / disappointed to see that the first couple of ingredients are petroleum and lanolin oil. But considering all of the rave reviews -- even among other acne-prone reviewers, I thought it was still worth a try.
This is a "heavy duty" concealer, and even with a very, very small dab, this does offer nearly-opaque coverage. A little bit goes a VERY long way, especially if you're just trying to conceal small areas and the undereye area. The first time I used this was to cover up little areas of redness. I also used the concealer pencil to cover those very small post-acne marks. Some other reviewers complained that the pencil was too dry to use, so I was expecting mine to be that way too, but it actually went on quite creamy. It felt similar to the concealer in the tube. It covers just as well and lasts just as long. If they sold a larger version of this pencil, I think I'd purchase it.
Staying power is great. My skin can get very oily, and this concealer will last until I try to wash it off. It does not change color, oxidize, or fade / melt through the day. I have some slight undereye darkness, and this conceals and brightens the areas beautifully. Since this is a thicker formula, I prefer dabbing with my fingers to help it melt with my body heat and blend a little bit more easily.
I like the clear squeeze tube package. It's hygienic, you can easily see the color, and it's very easily to control how much product is dispensed.
I have not experienced any sudden breakouts with this concealer (I've been using it on-and-off for a couple of weeks now). I don't expect it will ever be a problem since I only need a very, very tiny amount each time.
I have not tried to cover my tattoos with this yet, but I will try to eventually and re-update once I do. :)
But so far, so good. An excellent inexpensive medium-to-heavy coverage concealer.
This is the *best* d/s concealer I've ever tried. First off, I have pretty dark undereye circles. I've tried so many concealers, from Maybelline concealer stick (too yellow and hard to blend), Covergirl Smoothers (waaay too peachy), Maybelline Age Rewind (not enough coverage but decent highlighter), to Benefit Erase Paste (creased crazy-style even after setting with powder). Hard Candy's Glamoflauge definitely has the best coverage I've tried far. After setting with powder it stays put all day and/or night with minimal creasing. I'm glad to know I can get a great-coverage concealer without forking over too much $$$.
I adore this product. But why oh why only 3 lippies?
The coverage is great.. No awesome! We only need a little bit to cover a large area like chin... But 2 hours after I apply it, it looks like a mess. It just don't work with my oily skin..
And I set it with powder...
So yes. Great coverage but the staying power is bad, real bad!!
-a little goes a long way
- transfers/ comes off easy
- limited color selection
A completely edited review since I've found a way to make this work. My skin has gotten a little drier (not as oily) with age, so the grease factor of this concealer is less of a problem. I find that it can have a bit of a gray cast on me at times which actually works when I use an orange corrector under my eyes and layer this on top. My other concealers don't work as well with the orange.
It's important to only use a small amount so you limit creasing. I would also recommend setting with powder since there can be a tendency to slide around on oily skin.
:/ I wanted to like this due to the great coverage and the lovely price and packaging.
But honestly, IT"S VERY YELLOW and has a slight green tint on my skin to the point where people ask why my face is green.
It also contains oil, which for my oily skin, is horrendous.
It wipes off super easily....and it's really hard to blend T_T
So no, no repurchasing for me.
