Have you ever noticed, if you are trying to cover your dark circles using a concealer or foundation, it gives bit of ashy or gray-ish finish. Specially if you have very intense dark circles, you will not be much satisfied with the finish. So it means you are missing a step in your base. It’s a corrector that you must be using before applying your concealer or foundation.
I am sure you would want to know about L.A. Girl HD Pro Conceal Orange Corrector which neutralizes the shadows under your eyes so that a concealer/foundation can illuminate the eye area.
A corrector in makeup refers to a creamy/powdery formula to neutralize deep blemishes or shadows. They are very effective in helping you achieve flawless finish if you have quite troubled skin. There are multiple colors of corrector such as green, purple, yellow, peach, orange etc, which I would like to cover in a post dedicated to corrector & concealers soon.
Talking about L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer, I do not use it like every day, but I like to use it underneath L’Oreal Paris Infallible Stay Fresh 24HR foundation, which definitely gives my under eye area an ashy look. I wonder why, maybe because the foundation has bit of pink undertones too?
L.A. Girl HD Pro Conceal Orange Corrector
L.A. Girls HD Pro Conceal range is an exquitiste range of concealers and correctors to give you a flawless skin covering every minor and major problem area. Orange corrector from the range is a buildable & blendable formula to cover light to intense dark circles and blemishes with it’s creamy formula and soft brush tip to apply it fuss free. The product is suitable for all skin types.
L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer – Orange Corrector is priced at Rs. 575 for 8gm, but lasts you like for an year since just a swipe of this corrector is all you need.
The whole range of the corrector and concealers from L.A. Girl HD Pro Conceal comes in opaque tubes with a brush-tip attached to the tube mouth and a long black screw-in cap to avoid spillage.
The orange corrector comes in a orange opaque tube with black accents on it. The product name, shade name, ingredients etc are printed on the tube. The soft brush attached on the mouth of the tube is really handy as it makes it really easy for me to apply the product under my eye area. The brush tip is really soft and does not feel harsh on the delicate under eye area.
Fragrance & Texture
The fragrance of the product is negligible and I never notice any smell out of the tube. I too feel makeup products should not have much fragrance to them. Coming to the texture of the orange corrector, it is creamy and blendable but sets as quickly as you apply it. So it is important to blend it quickly. The blendablity of the corrector is really commendable though.
How To Use
It is a pre concealer / pre-foundation makeup step. It is a corrector. It covers up/ neutralizes skin blemishes and dark circles so that your skin looks naturally beautiful. It should be applied on fresh & makeup free skin. It should be your next step after cleansing-toning-moisturizing.
- Start with makeup free but thoroughly moisturized skin.
- Swirl around the blemish you want to cover. Or swipe across your under eye area if you want to cover your dark circles.
- Pat lightly.
- Apply translucent powder/ concealer/foundation to set the concealer.
The orange concealer is highly pigmented and my dark circle needs only one light swipe of this corrector. If I somehow put a bit more, then my wheatish complexion starts giving out orange-ish hue. So one must be really accurate with the quantity applied.
If you have light-fair skin tone, a peach corrector is most suitable for you for dark skin tones orange corrector work the best. If your skin tone lies in between then you can use a peach as well as an orange corrector but just use a little.
It sets off quickly in matte finish. It feels like your own skin. There is no powdery residue after it’s dry. I really like the finish as it does not feel like a layer which could be rubbed off while applying a concealer or foundation over it.
The concealer does not interfere with the application nor with the longevity of the other makeup that is layered upon it. Hence there are no staying power issues related to it. It also comes off easily with a makeup remover.
Concluding the review, I like how effectively it neutralizes my dark circles which some times look gross whenever I am not able to catch enough sleep. The formula is lightweight, blendable and quick dry. It sets off like your second skin. It is affordable and economical. Less is more for this corrector otherwise it can give orange hue.
