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.

After all the glowing reviews. I had to pick up this product from Wal Mart. I wasnt exactly sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised with the consistency. I have small creases under my eyes ( thanks genetics even my 4 year old brother & 2 year old daughter have them :( ). It covered up my discoloration but settled into every little crease so im still on the hunt for the perfect undereye concealer. It is amazing at covering up all the hyperpigmentation left from acne & eczema. I love the fact that the have the liuttle pencil. I use it to line my waterline 7 then put UD midnight cowboy liner over it & its my instant AWAKE look. I can't complain about purchasing this product, it may not be my HG concealer but it is worth a try.

This stuff is great!!! Up until I purchased this, my HG was Smashbox HD concealer...this is much much cheaper and just as good. It covers EVERYTHING. Blemishes, undereyes, etc without looking cakey or nasty. I'm NC20 and use the lightest shade. I like the little pencil it comes with for tiny spots but I'll admit, I forget to use it. The real winner here is this creamy tube of concealing goodness!! And you get so much product for $6, its ridiculous! Definitely will repurchase! I use it daily, and like other reviewers have stated, it covers better than even the Kat Von D tattoo concealer.

I bought this concealer in light as a recommendation from another MUA member to cover up my dark circles. I must say I'm impressed so far! The key to applying it though is to make sure the underyeye area is well moisturized and use the littlest amount possible. I used to blend with my fingers but with this concealer, I find it is more natural looking to use a concealer brush. Another key to making it not cake is to not powder on top of it. I used Lancome Effacernes before this and for the money, this is a better bargain and I actually think the coverage is better.

I have really bad Cystic acne along my jawline and this covers it up GREAT! When i say a little goes a long way i meant it! It covers up the redness of my acne and i only need a very small amount. I still have more than half the tube and bought it a couple months ago. Not to mention the price! 6$ at Wal*Mart! It is very thick but if you need the full coverage i definately recommend this concealer.

You get a good amount of product here and the little pencil liner is a great for reverse lipliner or nude waterline eyeliner. I have been using it in my lower lashes area outside of the waterline and it is incredible. Now lets talk about the liquid glamoflage, the Tan which is the darkest shade is still sorta light for me, perhaps its not peach enough for my NC40 skintone. I do own the Kat Von D Tatoo concealer in Almond, and I actually like the hard candy better. However, Glamoflage is not my HG and it does not cover my blemishes and undereyes 100% so I dont use this as much as I should. I think its ok for a $6 but not worth my run to the nearest walmart. I will post pics soon of the KVD Almond and HC Tan soon.

This is a good product and the amount you get for the price is incrediable! The pigmentation of this is awesome. A little bit goes a LONG way...however, i dont care much to use this under my eyes (which is why i use concealer in the first place) because i feel that it is too heavy and can just make my under eyes look worse. But for anything else that needs covering, this stuff is bomb. The only reason i said i wouldnt buy it again is because 1: It dont work under my eyes and 2: Since you only need a little bit, this product is going to last me forever!

Sadly, I absolutely hated this product! It felt so greasy even using just a pencil dot amount under my eyes. It also broke me out! Great coverage but I felt like I was putting on cooking oil. Ugh.

With all the talk and hype surrounding this concealer I had to try it. Sadly this concealer just isn't for me. It's thick, cakey, and difficult to blend. Looks horrible under the eyes and tends to look greasy after a few hours. The only redeeming factors would be the inexpensive price tag and the squeeze tube hygienic packaging.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Olive, Neutral Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
Pretty good coverage...I don't have an issue blending it, the trick is to apply a good moisturizer before hand. I really love the little pencil that comes with it...it's great for touch ups on the go and for blemishes. All in all great concealer for the price!

Hard Candy is easily becoming one of my favourite drug store brands (Or Wal-mart brand...). I went hunting for this concealer after reading the great reviews here, and although I had to hit up three different Wal-Marts to find it, it was worth it. When Hard Candy describes something as a "heavy duty" concealer, they aren't kidding. This is a very thick concealer that really does cover up all your blemishes. It's a thick, very opaque liquid, with a somewhat oily feel to it (A lot like Cover FX's Conceal FX).
A little goes a long way -- I usually squeeze the tiniest amount possible out of the tube, and can cover up quite a few of my (many) blemishes with just that. Luckily, the tube is very conducive towards this, having a very fine, narrow opening.
This product is not without its problems. As many people have noted, there's a very limited number of colour choices (only three). I also find this concealer kind of resistant to blending. Using Hard Candy primer, it blends a little bit better, but I think a product should be able to stand on its own. Nonetheless, this is a great concealer, and the cost ($8 Canadian) is just the icing on the cake.

I love this concealer !! Very creamy heavy duty for my under eye circles. The best part about it is that you need less than a pea size portion to cover the imperfections. If you use a lot of this it will cake up and look unreal so PLEASE don't use as much as you would with regular concealers . I must remind you that this is a heavy duty and it claims to cover tattoos so you can see how much of a power it has(: .

i ONLY write reviews on products that i either love to death or hate SO MUCH. this sadly is something i absolutley HATE. it not only makes the circles WORSE, it makes my undereyes look like serious reverse circles. keep in mind i used it minimally and i did not cake it on. made it worse. then i tried putting more on, settles into fine lines and makes it worse.
absolutley hate this X1000000000000000000!
