If you have read my last few blogs-frst of all thanks, but really if you have, you know that my financial situation changed, and I now have the challenge of finding high quality, low cost products. This can be quite a challenge, because I know most of us expect to be somewhat disappointed in some of the drugstore products we purchase because of the old adage: You get what you pay for.
I reviewed It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye a while ago, if you are curious you can read it here, I was extremely happy with the coverage the concealer gave me, but the price is a little high, so I purchased the 0.11 fl oz. travel size. For the travel size alone, it was $10 at Ulta. I love Bye Bye Under Eye, the coverage and color concentration is awesome, and exactly what you would look for in a heavy duty concealer. I picked it up in the Tan shade which is just a little too dark to use under my eyes, so that’s why I was still on the hunt for the right undereye concealer.
I went to my local Walmart store last week, and while checking out the cosmetics department, I came across Hard Candy. I always knew Walmart carried Hard Candy, but I never really considered the brand because I always felt it was a little on the cheesy/cheap side. I remembered that there has been some buzz around the Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer, so I decided to purchase it.
I picked up Glamoflauge for $6 in the medium shade, to use exclusively on my undereye area. I have been using it for the last week now, and I love it! The packaging, consistency, and concentration is nearly identical to Bye Bye Under Eye!
For application, I apply my foundation first, then apply Glamoflauge to my undereyes with my finger, and then blending the concealer with a beauty sponge, it comes out flawlessly. A light dusting of setting powder finishes it off, and it lasts all day.
I absolutely recommend Hard Candy Glamoflauge as a dupe for It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye if you are on a budget. I am pleased I got Glamoflauge because at the moment this is my HG concealer.
Have you tried any Hard Candy products? Do you like the brand? What is your holy grail concealer?
