EBAY FINDS #9 LA GIRL PRO HD CONCEALERS


"L.A. Girl PRO Conceal HD High Definition Concealer sumptuously glides across the complexion, imparting high-capacity coverage to the targeted areas whilst simultaneously promoting a natural finish".

If you've been following my Instagram (_skinfacebeauty) you'll know how much I've been loving the LA Girl concealers. There are a total of 21 shades; for colour correcting, concealing, highlighting and contouring. They originate in the US however they are finallyyyy available here in the UK and at an amazing price - yay!
They are so so easy to apply as they all come with a brush tip so you can press the tube and control how much exactly you need to use - a little does go a long way, they are super pigmented. The orange colour corrector in particular is SO orange, I tend to do a couple of small dots on my under eye area and blend out with my ring finger as opposed to applying it straight out the tube.
The concealers have a matte finish and are of a medium coverage however it is definitely buildable if needed. They blend so flawless with a beautyblender. They claim to be 'crease-resistant' however for me, I always have the one annoying crease line under each eye that is forever there so it doesn't really bother me. The concealer itself is lightweight and very long-lasting. It tends to dry really quickly so it needs to be blended out as soon as it's applied. The drying formula can be a good thing because you will know the contour/concealer will not budge throughout the day.
