L.A Girl's Pro HD Concealer... this stuff is down right AMAZING! I recently went and got the Kat Von D concealer, and frankly wasn't too impressed. It had really great coverage, but I found it to be cakey, and fairly drying... plus I had to end up mixing ALMOND & CARAMEL to attempt to find a match... and let's be real, at $25 a piece... I expect for it to be perfect. Needless to say, Kat Von D was a major FAIL for me.
Then , while browsing cherryculture.com during one of their promotions, I saw the L.A Girl pro concealer and decided that at $2.50 a pop I could pick up a few and hopefully find some luck... and I did! First off, the swatches on the site need some work. The colors are pretty off, but the undertones of the shades are pretty correct. I ended up picking up 7 shades to try, totaling $17.50, which is $7.50 cheaper than ONE Kat Von D concealer.
Did I find a match? Yes! How's the coverage? This stuff is so opaque, you only need a little, and it spreads/ blends so easily. As for the texture, it's not runny at all, but also isn't too thick that it applies patchy or dry. Ready for the best part... it lasts ALL DAY!!! ALL.DAMN.DAY.... for only $2.50!!!!
Now, let's talk about how much product you get in L.A Girl compared to Kat Von D. Kat Von D yields .58 oz, while L.A Girl contains .25 oz of product. But when looking at value, although Kat Von D has more than double the product that L.A Girl contains, L.A Girl is clearly the better value. Fact is, you can buy two or three of the L.A Girl concealers to match the product content of the Kat Vond D concealer and STILL come out between $17.50-$20 cheaper than purchasing ONE Kat Von D concealer. And you have 18 color options to choose from, whereas Kat Von D only boasts 8 colors shades.
And out of the 7 shades I picked up, I found a couple dupes for the Kat Von D shades I bought previously! I definitely think this was an amazing buy, and will be picking up a few more in my shade to have on hand, though I feel one tube will last awhile since a little goes a long way.
If anyone is interested, I will be selling the shades that were not a match for $3.50 (shipping incl.). A couple have been opened and swatched 1X, while the rest are unopened and sealed still. The shades being sold are: ALMOND, TOAST, TOFFEE, BEAUTIFUL BRONZE.
I also grabbed a few eyeliners that I'd been eyeing for awhile, but are almost always sold out. I picked up Styli-Style's Bullit Kajal liners in BLACK/BROWN & SOFT BLACK, and Jordana's semi permanent liquid liner in ENDLESS BLACK & NONSTOP CHARCOAL. I was VERY shocked to see how small the Kajal liners were... smaller than my pinky finger, but it's ALL product. And trust me when I say a LITTLE is all you need. I simply DOT (not glide) it on in a few places since it's so soft & smudge or blend to cover the entire lashline. I have not tried the Jordana liners yet, so I'll have to do another review once I've tried them a few times.
If you guys want a few swatches of these items or anymore info, leave me a comment.
Hope you enjoyed!
