I feel like the L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealers are the most raved about item on YouTube. Every single person that mentions it in their videos is beyond obsessed with it. It’s given the brand L.A. Girl a lot of hype. It’s prompted me to try their other products.
I hate to be the needle in the hay stack, but I really detest this product. I bought the yellow corrector because I was basically brainwashed by YouTube that I need to color correct, although I barely have under eye circles or bags (that’s a different topic altogether — YouTube is a strange, yet great place. I’ll talk about that in a future post.)
This concealer is not for me. It creases beyond relief. I liked putting it under my Maybelline FitMe concealer. It creased a lot at first, but then after like 2 weeks, it worked well for about a week. I would make sure my under eye area was well-hydrated. Then, I’d go in with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. (I’d like to point out that I would never dampen the sponge, although that’s recommended.) Afterwards, I’d set it with the NYC Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder in Translucent.
I’m not sure what happened after a week. I religiously repeated the same routine, and even switched up my setting powders because I thought that might’ve caused the creasing. I also tried blending it out with a brush, and I still got the same results. I think I got just got lucky the week that it worked. This product emphasized fine lines that I didn’t even know I had. It became very hard to work with, so I had to drop it.
I have very dry skin, and no other concealer creases this much in my under eye area. Not even using a primer on my under eye area could save me with this product. Baking was a fail, too. It only worked once during that successful week I had with the product.
I’ve heard people complain about the applicator, but I think that’s its best feature (besides the $5 dollar price point); it reminds me of a small concealer brush, allowing to appropriately and precisely place the product on my face.
It is worth trying because it seems to work on many people and it’s very affordable. However, the creasing ruins it for me. I won’t try other shades because of this. This is another YouTube product that failed me.
If you have any suggestions for making this work, please tell me in the comments in below. I want to love this 🙁 What other L.A. Girl products are phenomenal to you? I think their retractable lip liners are everything.
