LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Long Wear Illuminating Foundation.

It has been a while since I had a guest writer here, so today's review is by a fellow makeup junkie. 

Let's take a look at what she has to say.


-Guest post by Meghna

Hello All!
I am Meghna and here I am to share with you all the makeup and skin care brands trending in the market to help you know if they are really worth the hype

Summer has been pretty vicious for a while here in Bangalore, so if you are on the same page and need a break, grab a drink to cool off while we get into review.

The product that I am talking about today is the LA GIRL PRO COVERAGE HD LONG WEAR ILLUMINATING FOUNDATION (Uff that is a long name ) 

LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Long Wear Illuminating Foundation.


Priced at 1150INR for 28ml

A lot of beauty gurus have been raving about this product so I thought of giving it a try. I couldnt find them in any beauty counters as a drugstore range. I finally decided to try my luck online and find a shade to match my skin tone (They have around 15 shades)

I picked up the shade called TAN on Nykaa.com which should have been a warm colour to match my medium skin tone but it looked a lot lighter when it reached me.

Before I tell you how it worked on me, here are few things you need to know about my skin type.
Skin tone : medium
Skin type: oily and I do get breakouts if it isnt the right product for my skin type.

Product review

This is a liquid foundation and runny in formula. When I first tried it, I knew the shade wasnt right but I went along to see how it wears on the oily skin... and, okay! it wasnt a good decision. I ended up looking like so greasy. We oily skin people have been blessed with such a natural illuminating power that this foundation just seems to add a bit too much of illumination and further led to a few break outs. 

As soon as I recovered from the damage done to my face, I knew I had to make this foundation work for me as I've have accumulated a lot of foundations in my beauty closet.
I went ahead to settle the illuminating finish using a super matte foundation. I mixed my L'Oreal Matte Magique Foundation in G5, which was way too dark for me, but it had an amazing matte formula. And guess what happened, the shade was my perfect match that didn't go grey on my skin and had an amazing buildable coverage. This is my go-to foundation combination currently and I love it!!!

Packaging:

It is twinning with the Makeup Forever HD Foundation (Ive not tried that though). It has pump so need not worry about the product getting all over, though the nozzle sometimes might get leaky. It is travel friendly and can fit in the comfort of your beauty bag. Overall a decent packaging but not very fancy for the price.


Who should buy this.?
Anyone who is a fan of glowy ,dewy finish can go ahead and grab this foundation. It definitely does what it says and illuminates.
It is more suitable for dry skin type but when it comes to normal to combination skin you can make it work with any of  your favourite mattifying foundation or compact.
