Review: Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer with Concealer Pencil...!!!

Hey beauties,

Hope your week is off to a great start. Its been a while since I posted any concealer review on the blog as I was pretty much content with my L.A. Girl PRO Conceal HD Concealers and Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. I never felt the need to switch to any other concealer. However recently I decided to finally try the much raved about Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer with Concealer Pencil. I got in shade Light 312. So let's get to the review to know if I think its worth the hype or not...

This Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer duo comes in a transparent outer box that contains a concealer pencil and the concealer tube. The concealer comes in squeezable tube packaging. I am glad that the tube doesn't contain a brush like applicator rather it has a nozzle to dispense the product. Make sure you squeeze the tube very gently as you might squeeze extra amount of product. The concealer pencil is actually smaller than I thought it would be but its cute and is black in color with transparent lid.

The texture of this Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer is thin. It is pretty thin as compared to L.A Girl Pro HD Concealers. It feels lightweight. This concealer blends super easily and sets to a dry, matte finish. I have dry/combination skin and I didn't feel the concealer made my skin any dryer. The coverage this concealer provides is really amazing. The shade that I picked is "Light 321". It is a tad bit lighter than my usual concealer shades but when I use it with my foundation and set it properly, the shade looks absolutely fine. However I do feel it looks cakey at times if not set properly or applied heavily. I would suggest using a tiny drop of this concealer to provide adequate coverage without looking cakey.

The pencil that comes along with the concealer is slightly darker and paler than the concealer. The shade actually matches my skin tone well. I mix it with the concealer for getting my required shade, use it below the water line and also use it to cover any spots on face. The texture of pencil is kind of thick yet creamy. It is somehow hard to blend. The staying power of this heavy duty concealer and pencil is really amazing and it stays all day long.

All in all, I would say this concealer is worth the hype. It blends easily, feels lightweight and stays all day long. It provides amazing coverage and covers dark circles and other imperfections very well. The pencil that comes along is very tiny and somehow hard to blend. Nonetheless, the pencil is a good addition and can be useful. The concealer does feel a bit matte and cakey at times if not set properly. Still, the packaging, coverage and blendability of this concealer makes it better than L.A. Girl Pro Concealers for me. I definitely recommend you to try this concealer.

  3. I do not like the la girl pro concealer at all due to its thick formula and hard to blend nature. This looks quite promising. How would you compare it to Maybelline fit me and instant age rewind concealers in consistency and coverage huda?

    1. I love L.A. Girl pro because of their coverage but yes I agree the formula is very thick and hard to blend. This one is really easy to blend though and offers even better coverage. Maybelline Fit me is not matte finish and I use that as highlighting concealer. Both the concealers you mentioned offer medium yet buildable coverage. Whereas this one offers full coverage and matte finish. Maybelline's finish is different. The texture however is somehow similar and thin, easier to blend.

    1. Do try L.A. Girl ones as starter and then this one too. Am sure you will love the results. I find liquid concealers to be better than foundation sticks.
