I LOVE THIS CONCEALER!!!!!! It creamy and is the most pigmented drugstore concealer on the market. It goes on beautifully and a little goes a looooooong way which means it covers EVERYTHING zits, hyperpigmination, blemishes, you name it it will cover it all. I only have 2 complaints. 1 being I feel like it never sets but with a powder it looks fine and 2 being it lasts ok not a full day maybe a good 5-6 hours (maybe because of the creaminess) depending on how much you put on and powder. Overall DEFINETLY repurchase!!!

For 6 dollars this concealer is holy grail. It comes with a pencil with is used to outlined tattoos before concealing but I use it to conceal to tiny spots on my face. This stuff is absolutely flawless and a LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. Less than a pea size amount is enough for my under eyes and acne scarring. This packaging is not exactly attractive in my opinion but the tube is pretty convenient. I adore it and this is seriously going to last forever. It is an absolute brilliant product and I totally recommend.

Although the term "pepperoni pizza face" may seem a little harsh, it's quite the accurate description of my face; Oily t-zone and nose (with dry patches everywhere else...can you say best of both worlds?) and acne. Everywhere.
So to say that I've exhausted the concealer market is perhaps an understatement. I've tried just about every brand, be it high or low end, and bless their hearts, they just can't seem to cover my list of requirements. When shopping for a concealer it has to cover anything and everything, match me, blend in, not cake at all, and stay put come hell or high water.
With a list like that, it's no wonder I've had trouble finding something worthy.
When I first tried Glamoflague, I hated it. It was thick, cakey, difficult to blend and just downright annoying, but boy oh boy did it cover. The concealer splotches on my face may have turned me into a high school geography map, but my acne was gone. So I kept it around, ya know, just in case.
People may be having trouble with this concealer because...well, it's no ordinary concealer. I really can't think of any other way to phrase it, as corny as it may sound. So I guess it goes without saying that a unique concealer requires a unique application to work.
First, I'm just gonna echo everyone else's statements and say yes, a little goes a long way. Take that from someone whose entire face is a problem area, you don't need that much. That's why I love the squeeze tube it comes in. Unlike others that seem to vomit out globs without any warning, the pin head type applicator gently dispenses a small, perfect amount. I'd say take about half as much as you think you'll need. You'll be surprised at how much this little guy covers.
Next, work it up a little with your fingers before applying to help warm it up, then apply. I like to use my fingers (clean of course) because I feel it helps blend the product better.
Now I've always been one to blend in with my fingers, but that just doesn't seem to cut it with this concealer, due to it's thick consistency. I've shied away from blending with a brush, because in my experience, it typically removes product. In this case however, a brush is perfect! I take my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and stipple, just stipple, never buff, and it blends the concealer flawlessly. You can't even tell it's on, or that there's acne underneath.
This is also a VERY long wearing concealer, so minimal powder is needed. I'd say, the less you use, the better.
And as far as concealing undereye circles go...just don't. This product is too thick for the thin skin under the eyes. It will only look cakey and heavy. You can give it a shot if you want, but don't say I didn't warn you.
All in all, it's a great concealer, the best if you know how to work with it. Plus, it's so gosh darn cheap and there's a lot of product, so I have a feeling if I buy, say, 10, I should be good for life.
So I can only say "Heck yes!" to repurchasing, and will continue to enjoy the flawless face that only this concealer can bring me.

I really love this concealer, it has become my HG. I use it under my eyes (I have some serious dark circles) but you have to apply it carefully as it can settle into lines. It covers up the darkness under my eyes like no other product has managed to. Just make sure you blend it in well after applying it. It also hides the redness on my cheeks and across my nose. It use the lightest shade. It is a bonus that Hard Candy cosmetics are also cruelty free :) My only complaint is with the packaging. I like that it is in a tube, but you have to be careful. If you squeeze it too hard, it can just squirt out everywhere (and it has) and just the smallest amount of this is all you need. Use less than you think you'll need or you risk it caking up on you.

I am fair w/ red hair so finding a concealer light enough is a challenge! I bought light plus and its absolutely fantastic for getting a really good bright eyed look. I don't have terrible dark circles but any trace of them is gone. It can settle in the little lines around eyes but taking the extra time to blend really helps! Also I have some acne and the little pencil is slightly darker so it makes the little bumps DISAPPEAR - its amazing. I wouldn't reccomend reapplication of this throughout the day as it could get slightly cakey.. but I recently wore this concealer while on vacation boating/ inner tubing and this stuff lasts!! Its not water proof, but pretty close! I was also sweating in 90 degree heat with oily acne prone skin and this stuff didnt break me out which is another +. Basically I love this stuff and can't live without- I even tried mixing with some moisturizer to make a tinted moisturizer/ foundation and it was great. Love it, go buy it! HG status

I like to use this under my eyes for heavy duty cover up BUT I also discovered this is FANTASTIC for covering up bruises! I am one of these klutzy people who get leg bruises so easily and then I'm embarrassed to wear shorts or dresses in public. This product takes care of that problem. Start with a nice sized dab in the middle of your bruise and blend out with a sponge making sure to blend out the edges. It's hard to do a "perfect" leg cover up but this is pretty darn close! I think the main thing is keep it light and keep blending those edges out.

LOVE THIS! It's perfect for my occasional horrible spot that won't cover! But I have to mix light and medium to get my shade... it's okay though because it's very inexpensive. Very very high coverage... LOVE. Would not recommend for undereyes because it can be drying over those sensitive areas.

So, I'm a concealer junkie. I found out about this via youtube and was immediately intrigued after seeing a video of someone showing how it covered tattoos. My insecurities and 'flaws' I guess, are the freckles on my cheeks and nose. When I first bought this concealer, however, i was just going to use it for underneath my eyes. It works okay for that purpose, but it's usually my last resort, just because it's so thick on top of my foundation and it's a lot of work. Just yesterday, I decided to wear it underneath my foundation, and it worked amazingly! I'm NC40ish in MAC, but the darkest I could get at my Wal Mart, was medium-light. Since I was just looking for a brightening concealer then, I was fine with it. But I apply it underneath my foundation, which can come out a little darker sometimes, and it evens it out. Overall, I'm really happy with this stuff, and since a little bit goes such a long way, with how heavily pigmented and thick it is, it will last a really long time. Definite repurchase;.

This concealer is absolutely phenomenal!!!!! I am a HUGE Sephora fan, so when I compare this to other concealers, I'm talking no joke, heavy duty and high quality concealers. First of all, I love that they sell an Ultra Light shade for very fair skin tones like mine. I've come across way too many concealers that are just too orange on me. If you're worried about this potentially looking orange on you, believe me when I say it won't. I'm almost positive no skin tone is any lighter than the lightest shade of the Glamoflauge concealer. The packaging looks good and is not problematic whatsoever. The price is absolutely amazing ($6) for the amount of product you get and the quality of it. I've tried many, many concealers claiming to be full coverage and long lasting, but very few have been able to truly live up to that claim. This Hard Candy Concealer not only lives up to that standard, but hardly creases at all when worn under the eyes. It totally covers up even the darkest of circles, the reddest acne, and the biggest of birth marks. Honestly, in my opinion, it works far better than any high end concealer I've purchased. I will never buy an over priced concealer again as long as this is on the market!

The concealer has good coverage but I feel like I pull my skin when I try to blend it out. And it creases easily so I mess up my makeup when I try to spread the crease. It does last a long time considering I have oily skin. All over this product is just average. Would not repurchase.
