Glamour on the Cheap - Hard Candy Concealer Review

Glamour on the Cheap. It's my new semi regular feature on beauty products that won't break your bank. Sure, high end brands are amazing, but it's nice to buy yourself a good product and not have to deal with buyers remorse afterwards. So here's your proof that you don't have to spend an arm and a leg to look glamorous and gorgeous! 

I admit it... My under eye circles are HORRIBLE. No matter how much I sleep or how well I take care of my skin, I still look like I went 3 rounds in a ring every day. Not to mention, I'm the proud owner of some early under eye wrinkles. It's something that has always bothered me, and I've tried a million concealers to hide the problem. From Bare Minerals to Benefit to just about every drugstore brand out there, I always hated something about it. Until I tried Hard Candy. 

I really can't say enough about how much I love Glamoflauge. It covers my dark circles and problem spots like a dream, has amazing coverage and consistency and if set with a powder will last almost all day. I blend it out all over my eye area, and it never once settles into my creases. The other amazing part, you barely have to use any at all. For my entire face I use less than a pea size drop. It is so intense the smallest ammount goes a long way, so you're getting even more bang for your buck. 

It also comes with the concealer pencil, but honestly, I've never really used it. It's a bit too small for larger areas (same size as a regular eyeliner pencil) so I just keep it in my case.. just in case ;) 

Cost : $6.00
Where to Buy : Wal-Mart

You're so welcome! My routine for the best coverage possible with it is : foundation primer, tiny amounts of concealer applied in a couple light coats, then a foundation. If you use a liquid or cream foundation, set it all with a powder afterwards. That usually does the trick for me! Hope it works out for you!

Thanks for this post!! Too many times it seems like unless your using expensive products your opinion doesn't count. Inexpensive doesn't always mean CHEAP. =)

Well put, Lydia! I LOVE watching Youtube beauty tutorials, but I always end up feeling bad that I don't have all MAC products haha. It's nice to learn about something that is more accessible.
