LA Girl Pro Concealer - 15 Shades Swatched

Nov 24, 2013

I have found a concealer that I've really been loving lately and I wanted to share it with you all.  It's such a great product and it's super affordable.  The L.A. Girl PRO Conceal Concealer is crease resistant and offers full coverage without being too heavy.

L.A. Girl PRO Conceal Concealer
Available in 18 Shades
Shades Purchased:  Classic Ivory, Natural, Creamy Beige, Nude, Medium Bisque, Pure Beige, Warm Sand, Toast, Warm Honey, Fawn, Toffee, Espresso, Chestnut, Beautiful Bronze, Dark Cocoa
$2.50 on sale at Cherry Culture

I purchased 15 of the 18 shades.  I have personally tested the shades Fawn and Warm Sand underneath my eyes and have been very impressed.  They are crease-resistant but since they still do crease, I set them with my Ben Nye Powder.  Now for the swatches.

Classic Ivory, Natural, Creamy Beige, Medium Bisque, Pure Beige

Warm Sand, Toast, Warm Honey

 Fawn, Toffee, Espresso, Chestnut, Beautiful Bronze, Dark Cocoa

 I definitely recommend these concealers and with 18 shades available, there is likely to be a shade for everyone!  It reminds me of my MAC Pro Longwear Concealer.  Have you tried this concealer yet?  Let me know.

Chaos Makeup - Chaos High Lightning Powders

Nov 7, 2013

This is not a review, I repeat this is not a review!  It's simply a sneak peak at one of my new playthings!

I love the creativity of makeup artists and one of the many that I admire is Megan Martinez.  She is amazingly talented and I believe she is also self-taught.  She recently launched a collection of highlighters.  These highlighters are all hand pressed and they currently come in a set of 6.   The shades are as follows:

Striking - Silver 
Shrinkle - Blue 
Mynxii - Pink 
Electric - White 
Fawn - Bronze
Vie En Rose - Bridal

The set retails for $55.   I ordered them online and my order was processed really quickly and I got them in a decent amount of time (around 3 weeks which is fine considering I'm in Germany).   However, I didn't read the description of the highlighters so I was expecting them to be larger but they are actually quarter sized/about the size of a MAC eyeshadow.   Also, each pan is encased in a small plastic container with a snap top and is secured with a small piece of what looks to be cotton.  All of the pans arrived in perfect condition and nothing was cracked or spilling. 

At this time I've only tried Fawn on myself and I loved it, however, I have to play with application techniques and try these on some of my clients to really give honest feedback but I will be purchasing the new colors that she is launching and I'm definitely happy with my purchase so far!
