Good Morning ladies! Sorry for the intermittent posts lately, I’ve been a busy girl! Today I’m reviewing a product that I am quite amazed with and wanted to share with everyone. A while back, I won a Twitter contest from Hard Candy and this was my prize!
This is Hard Candy’s Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer. I was super excited when I realized that this was my prize! I love a good concealer and we have yet to get these in Canada (at least in Calgary). I’m not sure if you can tell from the photo, but this is a HUGE tube of concealer and will probably last me forever! It is bigger than the Clinique All About Eyes concealers for comparison (which I already think are huge haha).
I like to have a lot of difference consistency concealers for different problems – liquid for under eyes, cream for blemishes, cake for other blemishes haha and of course my Maybelline dream mousse for everything! I have a really hard time covering blemishes so I’m always looking for a new concealer to do the job, this one is incredibly impressive!
First off, they sent me the shade medium, which I was kind of skeptical about because I am pretty fair. The surprising thing about this concealer is that it is extremely neutral in its undertone! There is no pink, orange, red – it’s a true beige. I was happy to see that because I don’t have many distinct undertones to my skin so this ended up being extremely versatile for me! It also blends into skin really well and is almost undetectable.
Honestly, this is probably the most pigmented concealer I have ever come across (I’m sure there are many more pigmented – I’m just going with the ones I have in my collection!) This concealer covers every single bit of redness you may have in your skin and completely neutralizes it out! When I first tried it, I couldn’t believe what it was covering and how little you needed to get the job done! I also love that it comes with the tiny concealer pencil (which also gives amazing coverage with a different consistency) that is great for using on blemishes, broken capillaries and other tiny imperfections that you need to be precise with.
My only issue with this (the cream part – tube) is that it can build up on the skin and be noticeable if you apply too much. This is easily corrected if you go over it with a damp sponge or just be very careful about how much you are applying – you only need the TINIEST bit! I know this is a very inexpensive concealer (not sure of the price because it isn’t in Canada) and would definitely be worth a try if you are looking for a highly pigmented concealer at a great price!
