L.A Girl Pro Collection

Do I dare go as far as saying that this is my new favourite makeup brand, like ever?! 
L.A Girl Pro Collection

Ever since I saw Carli Bybel contouring with these Pro Concealers, I've been meaning to try out L.A Girl Cosmetics. I don't know about you, but I immediately think that if a beauty product is fairly cheap, it's probably going to be a bit crap or look absolutely horrendous on my skin. So initially, I decided they weren't going to be for me. But, after seeing the brand pop up so much lately I decided to go out on a limb and purchase a few items. I mean, all of these products came to £27 POUNDS in total. Where else would you be able to buy a foundation, setting spray and two concealers for that kinda money?! I knew if I didn't like them, at least it hasn't cost an arm and a leg that I would be crying over.


I decided to try two of the  L.A Girl Pro Conceal Concealers, one in the shade Porcelain and one in the shade Yellow. The Banana shade in my Anastasia Cream Contour palette is my total ride or die, but it can get pretty expensive - especially when they STILL don't do single refills, so whenever I run out it's a whopping £40 - yes Anastasia, I'm calling you out gal. So I thought I'd try the yellow concealer as a cheaper dupe for all my contouring needs as the colour was fairly similar, and then I bought porcelain as a regular concealer.

These concealers are genuinely insane, they are so creamy and blend so well even though they're very pigmented as you can see by the swatches. I've been using the porcelain concealer to cover up blemishes before my foundation and it's my new favourite. Then the yellow concealer has been sharpening up my cheek contour and brightening my under eyes on top of my foundation. The colour works just as well as ABH Banana, just £35 cheaper! The tubes are a little annoying, I feel like I personally don't really get on with the brush applicators as I can't control how much product I'm going to use. But I mean for £5.00, I think I can live!

This foundation though is by far my favourite find. Before I go into it, I admit - I'm a foundation snob. I always assume that the more expensive a foundation is, the less it will break out my face or cause me problems etc, etc. But I've been wearing this £11 foundation daily for a week now and I can't believe how blind I've been. Like seriously, I wore this foundation on a boozy night with the gals a few days ago, I woke up and lost my purse but my foundation was still amazing! If that isn't a praise I don't know what is! 

The shade I bought, Nude Beige comes up and sets a lot darker than the foundations I usually wear, but I've been brightening it up with my concealers and a little powder and it works great. The coverage is unreal and you get so much for your money. With other foundations I wear, like Sheer Glow, I use around 3 pumps to get an even base. You can basically cover all of your face in this heavenly formula with just one pump. Honestly girls, if you suffer from oily skin like me and don't like a full matte look then this is the foundation for you. It leaves your skin looking semi-dewy but not totally greasy and doesn't settles into pores. 


Then lastly, the L.A Girl Pro Setting Spray. You're probably thinking 'God, surely she's going to moan about one thing at least?' but, you're wrong. Sorry lol. This setting spray is sooooo good. Forget, Mac Fix+ and Urban Decay All Nighter - A £6 setting spray beats them both. This spray has a cooling effect so it feels super refreshing and comes out as a light mist, which I love. It really gets the job done, as I said before, I woke up with my makeup pretty much still intact and I think it's down to this spray. Although, I do wish they sold a bigger version of the bottle as it's tiny. But, It's super easy to just pop in your bag at the same time.



I'll definitely be trying more of the L.A Girl range, have you got any favourites? Thanks for reading! 
P.S, there's still time to enter my  giveaway! x

  4. The concealers sound great! I love using concealers for contouring but I find it so difficult to find ones that are easily blendable, I definitely need to give these a go! x
