NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer vs LA Girl Pro Conceal

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?

  1. I'm pretty happy with my Bare Minerals concealer at the moment, mostly because it never cakes up. It'll be quite a while before I finish the tube, but I'll keep these in mind!

    Speaking of beauty, have you checked out deciem.com? I've been looking for a new serum and they have a retinol one for $10 (!) by The Ordinary. The brands/products they sell are interesting, to say the least.
