[Review] L.A Girl Pro Conceal HD High Definition Concealer & Corrector

Hello everyone! Way back in the day, I did a haul from the online site Cherry Culture which included two L.A girl pro conceal concealers. I’m one of those people that never understood the huge deal with concealers, I usually have enough time in the mornings for just foundation and that’s it. Anyway a few months back my the bags under my eyes were looking REALLY dark due to lack of sleep, exams and my work schedule. I remembered I had these, and took them out for a test.

I picked up two shades with my haul, Warm Honey (GC982) and Fawn (GC983). For reference I have Indian skin and am around a NC 42 in MAC and shade 4W2 in Estee Lauder. I chose my shades based on swatches online- there are plenty of blog posts and Youtube videos which swatch the entire collection. The first thing that you’ll notice about this product is the price , I paid around $3 each for mine which is why I didn’t hesitate to pick up two. It’s super affordable so you really can’t go wrong with this product.

Back to my review, I absolutely love these concealers and there really isn’t anything bad that I can say about the product. It comes in a squeeze tube with a brush tip which makes dispensing it super easy, although I tend to apply on my finger and then to my face. The texture of the concealers are creamy and thick, and provide excellent coverage for under eye circles. Best of all, it stays on my face ALL DAY LONG. Which is definitely what I look for in a product! I apply my foundation first, and then the concealer on top. I apply only a tiny amount though, because it can crease if you apply too much. Finally, I set the concealer with my Studio Fix powder. Both colors I chose are a good match for my skin, although I like Warm Honey a bit more. I’ve also used this on normal blemishes but didn’t find that it worked as well, maybe because it’s such a creamy product.

I own the MAC pro longwear concealer and prefer these L.A Girl ones, so this is a great dupe if you’re already using the MAC one 🙂

Next up is the L.A Girl Pro Conceal Corrector in Orange. Correctors are basically meant to “color correct” certain areas that you want to disguise. For example, salmon, peach and orange correctors can be used to correct under eye circles while green correctors are used to correct redness in the skin. I read a lot of blog posts saying that orange is great for darker skin tones, and was really curious so I picked this one up from eBay for around $5.

The corrector has the same creamy consistency as the concealers, and is SUPER DARK! The first time I applied too much and just had huge orange circles around my eyes. The next time I was careful and only applied the tiniest amount. Even then, because the product is so pigmented, it still peeked through the concealer and foundation on top. You really have to blend and it takes time to apply this. I would recommend this for darker skinned beauties or else it will be impossible to conceal.

Overall, I highly recommend the concealers and look forward to buying more colors in the range. I’ve also heard that they’re great for contouring so will also be picking up a darker shade next time. I might give the orange corrector a miss the next time, although it was a good experiment!

Do you color correct or conceal on a regular basis? Would love to hear your favourite products!

  1. Oh wow, for a second I thought the orange colour corrector was a lip colour! I’ve been using a yellow to counteract my dark circles… it works “ok” i guess but relatively noticable. I’ll try using a small amount of peach colour next time 🙂 $5 is pretty good for pigmented concealers.. my HG at the moment is IT cosmetics and Thin Lizzy.. they cover everything!

  2. Wow, that orange concealer does look really dark. It would be great to see how it actually shows up under the eyes. I am still looking for concealers that suit me.

  3. I love the darker colour called “beautiful bronze” for contouring!! I believe I am around the same skin tone as you and found the orange correcter to be way to dark for my liking.. maybe i thought my dark circles were worse than they actually are?… i haven’t tried these yet for actual concealing so I’m excited to pick up some more shades!

    1. Oh I’d love to buy that shade for contouring! Didn’t realise the corrector would be that dark but if I apply my normal foundation over it, it seems to cover it well. At least now you know which ahades to pick up for the concealer if we’re around the same colour! 🙂

  4. I’m amazed that these concealers are only $3! I’m going to keep my eye out for this brand. I’ve been using Benefit’s Erase Paste or NYX orange color corrector, but always love to try out new products. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hey! Thanks! Really good review! I use fawn . Strange to listen but it actually matches my skin tone. Even I bought it after reading a lots of reviews and seeing swatches. My skin tone is tan with very yellow undertones. The moment I saw it I knew it’s my go to shade. It feels very yellowish whe
