LA Girl Concealer

I purchased this concealer quite a few weeks ago from BeautyBay and I have been putting it to the test. I had not seen or heard many reviews about this, but I had heard quite a bit about the band LA Girl from many of my favourite American YouTubers. When I saw the brand available on the site, I was very intrigued and started to look at the products on offer. I am always putting concealers to the test, probably over any other product as it is such an important step for me in my daily makeup routine. I decided to take the plunge and order the PRO.Conceal.

One thing I always struggle with when ordering online is getting the right shade, and with this I did not do too well. The descriptions on BeautyBay site are not accurate in comparison to the real colour, but it does always depending on the lighting when the photos have been taken. Ivory is described as being a good match for porcelain skin which I would not describe my tone as, so I went with Natural which is for fair skin which is how I would describe my tone. However, it is too dark for my skin but I am just about managing to make it work. Next time I think the shades described for porcelain would be a much better match to my skin tone. So for £5 I think this is a great product, it is high coverage, blends well and lasts a good amount of time on my skin. I have been really impressed it has similar consistency to Collection's Lasting Perfection, but I think the PRO.Conceal lasts longer on my skin. I still prefer to use Nars' Creamy Concealer for areas where I want lighter coverage and I think this is a little too thick to use under my eyes. On to the downsides, I really am not a fan of the applicator as it is one of those squeezy brushes where the products goes into the brush and they you can apply to your face. However, I find the product does not evenly distribute on the brush and you can easily apply too much to one area. As I have said previously, I have only had this is a few weeks and I do not think it is going to last very long as the tube feels half empty already but for the price I cannot moan too much.

All in all, I would recommend this is I think it is a really good drugstore product which does the job and does work well with covering areas where high coverage is needed. For me these areas are over my chin where my acne mainly flares up, and I have tested many concealers and I am very much impressed with this.
