Highlight for under R50 with LA Girl


The LA Girl Pro Conceal HD concealer is off the hook!

This guy is the bizzness! I wanted to use this as a highlighter. If you have been reading my blogs, you know about my obsession with highlighters.

 

He's the one!

I bought this at Dischem because I had never tried any make up from this brand so while in the process of filming my very first YouTube video, I saw HD and thought immediately – no white-out. So I bought it.

The first time I applied it, I knew I was onto something here, something big at a very low price.

Lets get into it.

I got onto their website and this is what it claimed:

The LA Girl PRO.Conceal

HD concealer is: Crease-resistant, opaque coverage in a creamy yet lightweight texture. The long-wearing formula camouflages darkness under the eyes, redness and skin imperfections. Provides complete, natural-looking coverage, evens skin tone, covers dark circles and minimizes fine lines around the eyes.

Whoa that’s a lot to live up to and it does live up to some of its claims.

First off, it comes in a plastic squeeze tube that has a BRUSH APPLICATOR! Love that. Of course, you know the drill, use it with the applicator for personal use and if you’re a make up artist, no, you can’t.

That said, the bristles on the applicator are super soft and when you squeeze the product onto your hand, the formula is as creamy and smooth as soft serve ice-cream (yummy), so I wasn’t worried about pulling and tugging on my under eye area. BB beauties, when you hit the other side of 25, you know you got to proceed with caution with these kind of products . . .

The product is so opaque that I knew right then and there that this was going to double up as a concealer and highlighter.

I got the shade in Pure Beige. I haven’t lost my mind.. . yet . . . but I wanted to use it for extreme highlighting – not spot concealing.

It glided on the skin seamlessly and didn’t settle in fine lines. I dusted it lightly with some Ben Nye Banana powder and it looked amazing. It is in your face full coverage, so there is no need to double up on concealer. It wore well for about 6 hours, it did oxidize slightly, but the powder could have been a contributing factor there. Overall, an amazing product and what a steal!
