I finally got my hands on the Youtube favorite LA Girl Pro Conceal. After scrutinizing fellow brown girl Sharifa Easmin, I went with shade Pure Beige. Over the past month, I've been reaching for the $3.99 LA Girl more than my trusty NARS concealer in Biscuit.
It is a pretty close color and consistency dupe to NARS Biscuit. Biscuit has a more neutral orange undertone while the Pure Beige is more yellow. The TCA Peel lightened my skin, so I can use either interchangeably or mix the two. Either way, Pure Beige is a popular option on Youtube for Medium/Dark, tan, and/or brown skin tones and NARS categorizes Biscuit as Medium/Dark 1. The LA Girl has a more fluid consistency than the NARS, but still keeps its tack so it doesn't get soaked up when blended with a damp beauty sponge. I use the orange Real Techniques one and set it with Rimmel Stay Matte transparent powder and a Real Techniques setting brush. I can't say I will quit NARS completely, but so far I like having both in my collection.
Has anyone else tried the LA Girl Pro Concealer?
