L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer Review

I'm in love with L.A Girl Pro.Conceal HD Concealer.

Over the last year I sat back and watched as American YouTube and beauty bloggers extolled the virtues of these concealers. Admittedly I was impressed that the 18 shades within the range afforded women of colour an opportunity to indulge. Over the years I have developed a love-hate relationship with my MAC Select Cover up Concealer (creasing, oxidisation)  and was on the search for a new product to help me through a beloved friend's wedding. I knew I would be out for the whole day and didn't want the day marred by frequent touch up breaks, so I turned to the Internet for suggestions.  The overwhelming glowing reviews, coupled with its dupe like status for MAC's ProLongwear concealer made these concealers an easy choice.

L.A. Girl is a brand not readily accessible for this London gal, so I had to turn to the good people on ebay to hook me up with my bounty. Thankfully I had my goods within a week and have been completely blown away since.

I decided on Toffee as an under eye brightener. The tube has a brush applicator that I had to really work (initially) to get the product out, the consistency was thick and I took heed of the warnings to work fast as it dried quickly. The product didn't crease after being set with a light dusting of powder and has replaced my Select Cover Up as my go to concealer. 

Overall the L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer is an excellent product and worthy of its Internet hype. On the negative it is not readily accessible for those of us not in the UK but this is easily corrected by auction sites such as ebay. I have already decided to purchase a few other colours in the New Year when the post settles down. I remain impressed with their colour range and the affordability of each tube - I paid less than the MAC for both products, including postage.
