Review and Swatchfest: Hard Candy Glamoflauge in Light

As summer comes to and end, I am looking ahead to the sleepless nights and caffeine binges the school year brings. My summer tan will fade away and all that will be left is transparent paste and blue-purple half moons under my eyes. Not only am I looking for a concealer with heavy coverage, but with school starting, tests to take, and grad schools to apply to, I am going to need something that will outlast blood, sweat, and tears. Literally.

Enter the Glamoflauge:

Hard Candy Glamoflauge in Light ($6) at Walmart

What it says:
A heavy duty, highly pigmented, multi-use concealer that delivers ultimate coverage. The formula blends seamlessly into skin with plenty ofplay time creating a flawless and natural look perfect for any occasion. You can hide everything from dark circles and blemishes to tattoos! 

What it does:
It all.



The formula is very thick-the thickest I have ever used and a little goes a long way. I put the tiniest dot on the back of my hand and it covers my under-eyes and blemishes with product to spare. It's so thick that you have to be careful to apply it with a light hand or it could definitely get cakey. It isn't so think that I find it hard to work with, however. I dab my finger in it, smooth it on whatever it is I'm trying to cover, and use my beauty blender to dab/roll over it to blend. The texture is creamy, smooth, and blendable and it really stays on.

The only downside to this product is might be the fact that those with deeper lines around the area they are trying to cover might find that it gets cakey in the creases.

The pencil is included to be used to cover tatoos. I don't have any tatoos, but I intend to use it as a way to clean up dark lip color. The texture is surprisingly creamy for a drugstore pencil and the covereage is great. I definitely wouldn't use it alone, but to clean things up, it will work nicely.

Overall: It's an awesome full coverage concealer that works well on dark under-eye circles and blemishes. Think about steering clear if you have deep lines around the areas you need to conceal.
