Hard Candy Glamoflauge - Heavy Duty Concealer Medium Review & Swatch

Hard candy Glamoflauge ($6) is A heavy duty, highly pigmented, multi-use concealer that delivers ultimate coverage. The formula blends seamlessly into skin with plenty of play time creating a flawless and natural look perfect for any occasion. You can hide everything from dark circles and blemishes to tattoos! 

Comes in three shades
  • Light
  • Medium
  • Tan

I finally got my hands on Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer. . I got it in shade medium. I wish it was tad more on yellow side rather than beige. I had been dying to try this since last year after watching/reading rave reviews

I love the squeezable tube it comes in, which makes the application easy and sanity .You get a decent size tube and since you only need a teeny tiny amount of product this tube is going to last ages. The formula is thick and on the dry side so i highly recommend moisturized skin before you apply this.
l I take out a teeny tiny amount on the back of my hand and use either synthetic flat brush or fingers to cover the blemishes/imperfection. Before i got that i was using my HG concealer by mac ( mac prolong concealer & studio finish concealer). I usually use concealer to hide some blemish ,spots or redness around my nose or around lips. I hardly use these under my eyes.So i bought Hard Candy Glamoflauge for the same purposes but i was disappointed at the shade. I wish it had more yellow undertone .It will work so much better if that so. I personally feel that this concealer is wee bit too thick for under eye concealing and end result could be cakey also i dont know whats in the ingredient but it made me oily few times. I use sleek makeup Luminaire Highlighting Concealer and i am pretty satisfied with it

Overall a wonderful concealer Only wish they had more shades available. Its a wonderful concealer which gives high coverage , pigmented and stays put for a long long time . Its affordable. But if your skin is mature and on the dry side , i would suggest testing it first.

Price : approx $6
Availability: Walmart (US)

Just for fun i posted my concealer collection photo on my facebook page, thought of sharing it here

Sleek Makeup Berry Collection for Holiday 2011 - Review , Photos & Swtach

The onset of the festive season mean two things 
1- searching for that perfect party look
2-worrying about what to buy your fellpow glam dolls for Christmas?
And because stylists are always the hardest to please, Sleek Makeup has created the ideal gift , The Limited edition 3-piece Berry Collection

The limited edition Sleek Makeup Berry Collection ($16/£9.99)  includes 
  • Sleek Makeup True Colour Lipstick in Cranberry (pink toned, rich berry)
  • Sleek Makeup Kohl Pencil in Mossberry (smoky purple)
  • Sleek Makeup Blush in Fenberry (a rich, rosy shade of berry)

You get the following products beautifully packaged in a slick black box ready for gifting someone or yourself for this festive season

All three products in the Berry collection are stunning true matte.The true colour lipstick in Cranberry is a pink toned,deep berry shade , perfect for a striking evening pout. Complements stand out lips with a rick purple toned sweep of Kohl pencil on moss-berry.,this chubby ,creamy kohl works best when smudged to create a smokey sexy eyes. Lastly add a flush of natural winter rosiness to the apples of your cheeks with blush in Fenberry .

My favorite in the Sleek makeup Berry collection is the beautiful blush in Fenberry. Winter is almost here and it means beautiful rosey cheeks. It might look bit scary in the pan and  may fair skinned girls will fear that it might look dirty on the skin but sleek makeup took care of it . The pigmentation is great but keeping in mind the strong shade, sleek makeup kept the pigmentation on the medium level where you get beautiful flushes cheek without overdoing it. The lipstick in Cranberry , is pigmented plum with hint of red undertone. Its perfect for this festive season , I normally dont wear such bold sshades but since i have been attending so many weddings.The formula of lipstick is easy to wear , its creamy and pigment rich with intense colour pay-off. Its has no shine, all matte finish. if you feel that matte formula is thicker and can get dry on lips . Apply this lipstick with a lipstick brush to get smooth, even coverage. A matte-finish lipstick is perfect for when you don't want your lips to appear glossed . Last product in this collection is Kohl pencil in Kohl pencil on moss-berry. When i first opened the box , i thought it was a chubby lip pencil. I wish it was a little more creamier . Maybe its winter and i felt that i had to try a bit to get the color and was bit hard to blend. I hope sleek makeup launches more chubby kohl pencils in future with better formula.

Over all , i think Sleek makeup Berry collection is worth trying and for the price of ($16/£9.99)  you cant go wrong. The boxed gift idea is wonderful and i am hoping that sleek makeup comes up with more of these in future.

So whether you're treating yourself or your friends, sleek makeup's berry collection provides the perfect on trend colour injection to your makeup bag this winter. I will post a fotd using some of the products from this collection so check back tommorow :)
