L.A Girl/Pro Conceal HD Concealer

I'd really like to try more of the USA's cosmetic offerings so I was over the moon to be offered the chance to try out these fab concealers by L.A Girl*. 

Since I started blogging over 3 years ago I've been on the quest for my ultimate under eye covering concealer, that's my area of concern and I've never found a product that combats them totally, until now. 

Yes ladies this is it, the one you need to get excited about, this is my new holy grail of concealers, and I have sourced a seller here in the UK that you can buy through for under £6! 

The concealer is a lovely creamy texture, meaning the coverage is buildable and the best thing, it doesn't crease in fine lines so it's really great around the eyes. I use a brush to pat mine in around the eye areas and down onto my cheeks to give the eye are a lovely brightness.

The opaque formula means it's not to thick yet it still provides very impressive coverage. It's a gel like formula that dries to a matte finish, if you've ever used the MAC Pro Studio concealer a lot of people compare these to each other, although the MAC one is way more liquid in consistency and for me did nothing but emphasise the lines. 

The packaging is a great idea, for application anyway, I am not so keen on it for blending, as you'll see in these pictures I use it to apply the product then blending out I use my trust Real Techniques Concealer Brush to pat it out. 

I always worry about the cleanliness of using these kind of applicators so i regularly clean the brush with my antiseptic brush cleaner to keep any nasties at bay. 

I've been using these shades:

Natural which is a pale beige shade with a yellow undertone, this blends perfect with my natural skin tone. 
Creamy Beige which is a pale neutral beige tone, perfect for use when I'm wearing fake tan.

If you love to contour with cream products then the colour range on offer is fantastic, I'm certainly going to look to invest in a few more colours as the small brush makes application on the contouring areas perfect. No matter what colour your undertones are they have you covered, warm, cool, pink beige and even neutral the price makes these even more of a welcome addition to any girls make up collection.

The staying power is very impressive too, it easy holds up for a good 8-10 hours on me and I don't reapply during the day, I do set mine with a smidge of my beloved Ben Nye Banana Powder to lock it in place.

Cruelty free formula. Shop the range through Beauty_B Cosmetics right HERE at £5.49 per tube and free postage you'd be crazy not to try these out. 

I am hoping I'll be able to do an international beauty swap soon, I'd love to try some of the other cult USA products.
