5 days of Trying New Products | Day 5: LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation on Dark Skin Tones

I love the LA Girl Pro Concealer. Heck, I don’t love it, I adore it! There is the tiny problem of it creasing under my eyes but it is affordable and comes in so many shades. When I saw the LA Girl Pro foundation, I needed to try it. I am so happy that LA Girl is finally in the UK, we have been waiting for this for ages! Well, you might not have but I have! Their products are always really affordable and cater for women of all skin tones. As a dark skin woman, I feel confident that I am able to buy products from this brand that will suit my skintone, which is great.

It is only available online though which is not the greatest.

MY THOUGHTS

I bought the wrong colour!!!! This is what I really dislike about buying foundation online. You are not sure whether the colour will suit your skintone. I bought Warm Caramel (Medium to deep skin tones with toffee undertones). I think I should have bought Rich Cocoa (Deep skin tones with bronze undertones). As soon as I put some of the product on the back of my hand, I knew it wasn’t going to be a great experience *sobs*. However, I really wanted to test this foundation so I had to make it work. I added a little bit of my darker foundation and voila! It matched my skintone.

I wore the foundation to work, so I didn’t highlight, contour or any of that jazz. Ain’t no-one got time for that on a work day! I literally moisturised my face and put on this foundation. Talk about putting it to the test!

I was pleasantly surprised when I wore this foundation. It is medium to full coverage, and it is buildable. I have to say though that it didn’t feel hydrating at all. It felt like a normal matte foundation which is ok for me, as I like a matte foundation, but my face didnt feel hydrated. I dont think you can have a hydrating matte foundation, can you? It sounds like two opposite ends of the spectrum. Or maybe you can? Please let me know in the comments, because I genuinely would like to know!

I found this foundation long lasting which is a major plus point for me. It is also really affordable.

CONCLUSION

I wish I got the right colour! But besides that, the foundation is great. It is matte and lasts for over 10 hours. I didn’t get oily and I didn’t have to retouch or reapply my foundation at any point during the day. The foundation also did not transfer. It was not hydrating however, so I will be interested to find out how this looks on ladies with dry skin types.
