Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer Swatches, Pictures, and Review

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer

Since I recently posted a couple reviews on Hard Candy Fox In A Box Blush, I decided to review the Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer for everyone as well.

Hard Candy says this is a heavy duty, highly pigmented, multi-use concealer that delivers ultimate coverage. The formula blends seamlessly into skin with plenty of play time creating a flawless and natural look perfect for any occasion. You can hide everything from dark circles and blemishes to tattoos. 

I do find that this is very pigmented and smooth, as claimed. It does wonders for dark undereye circles and I love its thick consistency. The concealer also comes with a small pencil, which is supposed to be used to outline the edges of a tattoo before you cover it with this concealer.

I do have a few tattoos and tried to cover the one on my wrist with this concealer. It did cover it okay, but since this concealer isn't a perfect match for my skin, you could see the uneven, darker tone on my wrist. Also, if you want to cover the tattoo, you'll need to trace the edges and fill it completely in with the pencil, dab on two layers of the glamouflauge, and finally place a powder on top. I honestly think you would be better off getting an air brush concealer if you really want to conceal your tattoos, because Hard Candy Glamoufauge is going to rub off for sure.

Also, with only three shades to choose from, Light, Medium and Dark, it will be really hard to find one that matches your skin perfectly to cover a tattoo. However, if you are just using this to conceal dark circles and blemishes on your face, you don't have to have such an exact match.

Many people compare this to the Kat Von D tattoo cover-up concealer. I don't own this concealer, but I did try it out at Sephora and these two products are very similar. I actually think the Hard Candy Glamoflauge is a bit thicker, and it's almost $20 cheaper, so you can't really wrong for giving it a try before you shell out the cash for Kat Von D's version.

Overall, I do like this concealer for covering dark circles and blemishes. I don't like it for covering tattoos at all. I also love the consistency and pigmentation and the fact that it only takes one little dab to cover a large area. But I really wish there were a larger color selection because not everyone fits into the three color choices.

Rating for Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer:
Product: 16/20
Value: 10/10
Packaging: 4/5
User Friendly: 5/5
Overall: 88%
