REVIEW | L.A Girls PRO Conceal HD Concealer and Swatches

This is the PRO Conceal HD Concealer from L.A Girls in the shade Cool Tan ‘GC980’.



I bought this concealer with the intention of using it as a highlighter, but in truth I think I got the wrong shade for my complexion.

The concealer comes equipped with it’s own brush to make applying it to your skin easier. I wouldn’t recommend that you try to blend the concealer with that brush though, it doesn’t do a great job at it. So just grab a concealer brush and use that to blend. Another thing, don’t take too long after applying it to your skin to blend it, it’s hard enough to get it blended as is.

Since this isn’t my shade, it makes me look ‘ghosted out’ when ever I use it, as you can see in the swatch, so I can’t really comment much on the colour pay-off. But even still, the times where I’ve used it under my eyes it really muted the bags that were there.

Overall I think that this is a good concealer, a bit on the hard side to blend though and it’s easy to apply to the skin. I’d repurchase it, but in the right shade next time – hopefully.

Bye everyone, I’ll talk to you in the next post.


My Go-To Powder Foundation

Hello everyone!

In today’s post I’ll be telling you about my current go to pressed powder foundation. The powder foundation that I find myself grabbing for the most lately is this ‘Amuse Pressed Powder’.




It’s very easy to apply and it allows you to build up to your preferred coverage. Being able to chose from sheer, to medium to full coverage on any given day with just one product is something that is very appealing to me and I can just put on more in the areas where I usually get oily (the dreaded T).

This does come with a sponge, but in my opinion, the sponges that powder compacts come with don’t offer much flexibility in the application process. The sponges give you instant full coverage and are not too great for blending.

The powder has a slight florally-ish smell to it, nothing that’s prominent and hardly even noticeable.

Overall it’s one of my favourite pressed powders.

Bye everyone, I’ll talk to you in the next post!
