Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer - Review + Swatch

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer, $6.00
If there is one thing I know, it's that every makeup loving girl wants to find the perfect concealer. We want a concealer that covers dark circles, red spots, pimples, scars, anything that makes our skin look less than flawless. They say that less is more. I agree! The less imperfections that show, the more confident I feel.

Last year, prior to getting married, I was trying to sort out my makeup for all the pre-wedding festivities, and finding a budget-friendly, wonder concealer was at the top of my list. So on a trip to Wal-Mart, I took a little waltz down the makeup aisle and came across today's item. It touted that it could cover tattoos, and I figured if the coverage was that high, it could definitely do the trick for my stress acne and sleep deprived dark circles!

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer is a Wal-Mart exclusive, which means that my international loves won't be able to find this on the shelves at home. However, if you can find a way to get your hands on it, you must! The coverage for this product is absolutely astonishing. A small dab will do you, which means that the concealer lasts forever, and it erases all of your trouble spots in seconds.

The things I've hidden with this concealer have been numerous. And it gives my face that flaw-free look that I've been dying to have. I get a lot of compliments on my skin, but I really credit this product as people have no idea of the discoloration I'm hiding underneath. As you can see from the swatch photo above, I have a small scar on my hand. And if you look at the blended photo below, you'll see that the visibility of the scar is massively reduced. That's how good this concealer is!

I have tried a lot of drugstore concealers over the years, and I have yet to come across a single product that is as good as this one. I hesitate to give it full Holy Grail status as I've not dabbled too much in high end concealers. At the same time, this one is so amazing I almost don't want to plunk down the cash for anything else! I can say without a doubt that this is an HG high street concealer, and if you can buy it, I think it's essential that you do.

Have you tried the Hard Candy Glamoflauge concealer? Do you have a drugstore concealer that you swear by?

  2. Really want to try this! Right now I'm on Collection's Lasting Perfection which is fabulous but I could always do with more when it comes to MY dark circles. x

    1. If you can get your hands on it, I'd really recommend giving it a try! I've had nothing but great results with it! It's got such fantastic coverage that I hesitate to even try higher end concealers now! x

  3. I've heard that this was the drugstore dupe for the one from Make Up For Ever but alas, I've not tried either. I do have the cult favorite Collection Lasting Perfection, but I'm still waiting to fall in love with that one. I'm just quite picky with concealers...xx

    1. I had not heard that! But I can almost see why that would be the word around town as this is just a really fantastic product! I haven't given that one a go, but might try and get my hands on it! I'm picky about concealers, too, so finding this one was like hitting the jackpot! x

    1. Definitely do! And since you only have to use a little at a time, it lasts forever, so it's really easy on the wallet! Thank you so much for the nomination! I'll check it out! x

  5. I really wish Hard Candy was sold in retailers other than Wal Mart. I refuse to set foot in that place and spend my money there.

    1. I can't blame you for feeling that way! When I bought this, I lived in a town that only had Wal-Mart. I didn't have a lot of choices when it came to where to buy makeup, and it wasn't always feasible to drive half an hour or more just to pick some up. But I completely understand where you are coming from and respect that! x

  6. I have never seen this product before, but it blends well on your hand. I think it's hard with concealer cause they are made for so many different things. For under eye concealer I really think you can get a lot of good ones, but for red spots that's a hard one.

  8. I used to watch Digimon all of the time... in German, same with most tv shows! I find it so hard to watch them now in English because it just isn't the same!

    I never can be bothered to use a specific concealer, I think I have just never found the right one.

    1. I never watched Digimon before my husband started rewatching it! Now I'm obsessed! They're just so darn cute! And I love how they devolve back down to their tiny sizes instead of staying evolved like Pokemon!

      I totally feel you about concealer! That is how I was before I found this one! I hadn't found the right one, so I just couldn't be fussed! Finding the right one makes a world of difference! x

  9. Great review! I have acne scarring on my face, and even my full coverage foundation doesn't cover it up completely! I'm going to have to give this a try!
