I am always on the lookout for a seriously awesome concealer. At the moment, I have a bunch of different concealers in my makeup collection. Some are high end and some are drugstore. I've got cream, liquid, you name it...it's there. Despite all of the products in my collection, I had never come across the one concealer that totally blew me away.
Then the other day, I was watching a YouTube video by Beauty Broadcast. Emily named one of her favourite drugstore products: the Glamoflauge concealer from Hard Candy. In the past, I've had a hit or miss relationship with Hard Candy. Some of their products (specifically the baked blushes and bronzers) have been absolutely amazing....while others have been total duds. So, you never know exactly what you're going to get.
After hearing Emily's rave review, I decided to give this product a try. To start with, I was totally blown away by the shade range. Usually, I struggle to find a concealer or foundation shade from the drugstore that is light enough for my skin. (I am crazy pale. Alas!) But there was a great colour selection. I chose the "Very Light" concealer shade.

Now, for the concealer itself. Let me just say: Emily was right. There is no better drugstore concealer that I have tried. Heck, there's no better high end concealer I've tried either. The pigmentation is intense. You need to use so little to get full coverage, so the product lasts for a really long time. The texture isn't light and runny - it is a little bit thicker. I find that it helps the concealer to set better. Also, it applies really well when you use your fingertips or a concealer brush.
Honestly, I am so amazed at the quality of this product. It covers dark circles incredibly well and the texture and longevity is fantastic. It's about $9 CDN - so it's a great bargain as well. I would definitely recommend the Glamoflauge.
Have you tried Hard Candy's Glamoflauge? What did you think of it?
