I have evaded colour correctors for the longest time, simply because I did not want to add yet another step to my makeup routine. However, once you see that your concealer is looking greyish underneath your eyes, you can’t unsee it. I realized that it might be time to add at least one orange corrector to my stash, so I picked up the LA Girl Pro Conceal HD in the shade Orange because I knew that one tube of this concealer will last me forever. Read on to find out how my experience has been with this orange corrector that the world loves.
The L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD comes in a whopping 39 shades in India, which includes not just concealer shades ranging from light to deep, but also colour correctors of all kinds. I have used their concealer and contour shades in the past and found them to be extremely pigmented, although I thought the formula was a tiny bit too creamy to be used as a concealer on my skin. However, when it comes to colour correction, the brand knows what it’s talking about. They have all shades of colour correctors imaginable under the sun available in this range, be it purple, green, yellow or red. I picked up their Orange corrector because I primarily needed something to cancel out my dark circles before I applied concealer.
The orange corrector comes in their standard tube packaging with a brush at one end. You have to be careful not to squeeze at the tube a lot or else too much product will come gushing out and will make things messy. Bear in mind that you need the tiniest drop of product for each eye because the formula is extremely pigmented, if you use too much product then the orange will peek through the concealer and might make you look like an oompa loompa. You will need to experiment a bit with this product before you figure out exactly how much to use, so don’t use it for the first time when you have to head out for a special occasion.
Once you get the hang of this product though, it will help cancel out any greyness under the eyes and will allow your concealer to brighten that region rather than making it look muddy. My recommendation is to take the product on the back of your hand and then dab it gently on your skin rather than directly applying it from the tube to your face. Also, you will need to use this with a medium to full coverage concealer and foundation to ensure that all the orangeish hue gets concealed. In the hand swatches, I obviously had too much product on my hand, so you can see the warmth peek through on the lower half of my fist even after I applied concealer over it. However, in the image of my face, you can’t really see any warmth under my eyes because I used a tiny bit of the product and concealed it with a medium coverage concealer.
Priced at INR 595, this product offers excellent value for money because I don’t think I will ever be able to finish the tube. I do wish they had a doe foot packaging instead of a squeezy tube, but oh well, if you are careful then you can manage with this packaging as well. If you have prominent dark circles then I highly recommend using this product under your concealer to get an even skintone throughout your face.
