$6.00 Concealer - Hides Anything

Ayyyyyyoooo! Dupe time.

(For those of you who do not know what a dupe is:

  1. 1.
    a beauty product that resembles a high end product in performance and look but is significantly cheaper.
    "this cheap concealer works just like the MAC one... its a perfect dupe."
    synonyms:steal, bargain, win, overall success

Okay, now on to the fun.

Many of you are well aware that I am a concealer freak, and I try any that I can get my hands on. My favorites of late have been the MAC Pro Longwear, the Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer, and the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage,
(all of which I will link here: MAC Tarte Laura Mercier ) , which range in price from $24 - $34. Yikes.

I never really go to Walmart, which is the only place to buy Hard Candy Cosmetics products, for two main reasons: 
1- It is slightly out of the way and I am too impatient. I don't know how the biggest chain store in America could be out of the way, but it is.
2- After watching the South Park episode on Walmart, I will never be the same.

However, I chose to get over those two fears because I have been wanting to try this concealer for a while, after hearing great reviews about it from other makeup freaks, 

So I went. I survived. And now I have a prize - a $6 concealer that is JUST as full coverage and pigmented as my favorites. 

and look... it's even an animal friendly product :)

It reminds me mostly of the Tarte Concealer, because it is that same super thick, almost goopy consistency that miraculously blends out perfectly. 
The only complaint  I have is the color selection... I wish they weren't all so absurdly yellow. I am not a sunflower. 

Anyways! I have taken some pictures of how I use this concealer to highlight my face, while hiding the blemishes and undereye circles I have at the same time. 

XO humans.
