The hype around these concealers were too much that I had to buy them! It always happens right ­čśť They are pretty reasonable and the quality is good. These LA girl concealers come in a variety of 20 shades for highlighting contouring and concealing.

For a better understanding of what contouring and highlighting is all about:

Contouring is usually produced by placing one or two shades darker than the skin color in areas such as in the hollows of the cheeks, on the side of the nose, and on the temples to give a shadow and slimming effect.

Highlighting can be achieved by placing one or two shades lighter than the skin color on areas of the face that is more prominent such as on the apples on the cheeks and the tip of the nose or the t-zone.

So now, you can choose your exact shade match to conceal you problem areas. You can choose lighter shades for highlighting and darker shades for contouring your face.

They also have 6 colour correctors in green, orange, yellow, lavender, peach and light yellow. These are used for camouflaging your problem areas like under eyes circles or acne scars. Following will help you understand more of what each colour corrector would help you achieve.

Orange Corrector: Neutralizes dark spots for medium/deep skin tones.
Yellow Corrector: Neutralizes purple/blue undertones.
Green Corrector: Neutralizes redness.
Lavender Corrector: Neutralizes unwanted yellow undertones and sallowness.
Peach Corrector: A lighter version of our popular Orange Corrector -conceals blue/purple undertones on fair skin tones and counteracts general dullness.
Light Yellow Corrector: Corrects dullness caused by blue undertones and brightens under eye circles.

My take on the product:

For today’s review, I have the shade orange for color correcting and the shade toast for contouring. I have acne scars and I bought the orange one to neutralize them and i got the most raved contour shade toast to get a chiselled look. The consistency of the concealer is thick and creamy. The pigmentation is great.

The packaging of the product is quite simple, just a transparent tube with a brush applicator. On pressing the tube, the product dispenses through the brush. It’s better to press it just once and wait for the product to come out as it may give out more product than what you may actually need.

I really like the consistency which is quite creamy and easy to blend. It sets to a semi matte finish. I find that it applies better with fingers or a beauty blender (sponge). Since it is creamy, it may crease so you have to set it with a powder as you do not want it to budge or move around.

Shades:

Orange – Orange corrector is a dark orange shade and not like the usual peach correctors. This is great for medium to deeper complexions. The colour is quite intense so careful with it. You will need only very little product and make sure you blend really well, as you don’t want to end up looking like an orange.­čŹŐ­čśé But it does a great job in camouflaging all my acne scars and gives a flawless look to my skin.

Toast – Toast is the most famous contour shade all over the world and I wanted to try it. It will be suitable as a contour shade for people with skintones upto NC45. Deeper skintones may not find this great for contouring, it might not show up that much on their skin. This helps you create a more chiselled, slimmed down face.

It is amazing how this product comes in a variety of shades, everyone can find a match for sure. You can mix shades and get your perfect shade too. You can literally finish your makeup with only these by getting one for concealing, contouring and highlighting. Such a versatile product and pricing is great too. I will soon be buying some more shades, probably for spot concealing. Highly recommend this product if you are looking for an affordable concealer or if your someone with a lot of scars and blemishes and if you wish to hide them, you should give these a try!! ┬á­čśŐ
