While bringing the glaze on, yes, you hide all the little scuffmarks etcetera, but after whiping it clean everything's back. I see no difference before/after.
What's the "magic" all those detailing guys talk about, i don't get it. Waste of money imo.

Some products just fill defects. Eventually you'll see everything again. You need the cut polish to fully remove scratches (that were sanded out). Most problems are caused by not enough (not aggressive enough) of polishing before moving to any glaze. Try cleaning after each step with diluted alcohol or wax and grease remover. You will see of you got everything out or not before moving on.

Even alot of compounds now are filled with bs fillers. You compound a car, it looks great...see it a week later after it was washed a few times and you can see scratches that didn't show when you finished it. What Ben said works, Clean it with some sort of prepsol in between steps to assure you've completely removed all the original sand scratches.
I personally don't even bother with glaze anymore.
I use compound, swirl remover, and if its a dark car, I use 3m ultrafina with the purple pad. The last step goes on wet and stays wet. You do 3-4 passes with buffer and then wipe it with a microfiber. Works well for me.
