First Impressions: LA girl concealers

IMG_3514

 

I was originally planning on writing review on them after playing around with them for a little while, but I thought I ‘d do a first impressions instead because initial reaction to them weren’t as expected.

I picked 3 shades: Yellow for Highlighting, Medium beige for concealing and Toast for contouring.

In terms of the colour choice, I’m glad I went for the colours that I did, because I think out of the variety that they do have to offer, these are the ones that suited me best.

However, the Yellow concealer, which is a corrector shade, had zero highlighting effect for me at all. I think maybe next time I might try to put the medium beige concealer underneath and then put the yellow on top. The Medium Beige concealer was a perfect colour match, and the shade Toast was a nice cool tone for contouring.

The applicator is a brush on type applicator which I like, because it was easy to place the product without making a mess. They are a good alternative to what the drug store have to offer because there is definitely a shade for everyone, and they have a similar price point to other drug store concealers.

My main disappointment with these lied with the actual coverage and blend-ability of the products. I expected these to be a high coverage concealer but they didn’t quite cover my scars. I also found these pretty hard to work with. They just weren’t as creamy as I expected them to be.

These are so heavily raved about, but I do want to be honest with everything that I share with you. I wonder if any of you had any of these problems when you first tried these. I have a feeling that with a little more time to play around with them, I’ll actually like them a bit better. I just want to share with you my initial thoughts because I was honestly a bit surprised.

If you’d like to try them out, I purchased mine from Amazon, or you can purchase them directly from LA girl.

Let me know if you’ve tried these concealers and tell me how you like to apply them

    Aww that sucks that you didn’t have a good experience with them. What did you use to blend them with? If you used a stipling brush it may not blend that well, atleast for me it didn’t. I use a damp beauty blender and that made all the difference. I do agree it’s not that high of coverage but for the price you really can’t beat it.

      I really wanted to like them! I used a stipling and buffing brush, but next time I’ll give the beauty blenders a go. But you’re right, they are worth it for the price point!
