Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer Review

Hard Candy's Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer (With Concealer Pencil) is a product that I've wanted to try for quite a long time but wasn't available to me until recently. I've heard many positive things about this concealer so I was excited to finally be able to try it out! Here's what Hard Candy says about Glamoflauge on the back of the plastic boxing it comes in:

"A heavy duty, multi-use concealer that provides ultimate coverage. Formula blends flawlessly into skin. Hide everything from dark circles and blemishes to tattoos."
Glamoflauge comes in a cute little squeeze tube with a nozzle, and also included is a mini concealer pencil. The plastic boxing states that to cover tattoos you're supposed to use the mini pencil in conjunction with Glamoflauge but I don't have tattoos so.. I haven't really tried the pencil out and I'll only be covering the tube of concealer in this review. Also, I got this in the shade Medium but to me it comes out looking more like a light/medium shade. It worked out just fine on me, though! Moving on..
I'm actually not really sure how I feel about Glamoflauge. I have things I like and things I dislike about it. First, it's a very thick consistency and is almost somewhat tacky. You only need the smallest amount of this and when I say small I do mean small! This stuff is super concentrated and opaque and you only need a little dot of product to cover either dark circles or a blemish. Since you only need such a small amount this tube will last you a long time so that's good.
I found that Glamoflauge concealed my dark circles and blemishes quite well, and despite being such a heavy duty concealer it didn't feel heavy or icky on my skin at all! It also didn't crease or cake on me and lasted all throughout the day! Here's what I don't like about Glamoflauge, though: the actual application. It was a bit difficult to blend for me since it's so thick and has that almost tacky feeling beforehand. I tried applying and blending it with my fingers, a damp makeup sponge, and also a concealer brush. I found that the easiest way for me to apply this was using a concealer brush to kind of buff it in and then go in with my finger afterwards to smooth things out a bit.
So, I do think that this is a good concealer.. I just wish that it was easier to blend in!
