LA Girl Pro HD Orange corrector: Review,swatch
Hello All 🙂
If you have read my MUR Matte Effect Cover And Conceal review you might know that I have an obsession finding Concealer for deeper skintone.
I have the same obsession when it comes finding a corrector. I want affordable corrector which can be easily acquired. Period!!
Having used/using LA Girl Pro HD Concealer in daily life, I wanted to try their orange corrector as well. So lets get onto the review but before that I’ll rant
something about why we need a corrector.
Price: 535 INR for 8gms( $3-$5)
Why you need corrector:
I ain’t a pro. I will utter the words the way I understand about corrector. You need corrector to do the underground work before you put on your foundation or Concealer to look flawless. So there is a color wheel and the colour which is opposite to that, neutralizes the colour. Eg: Blue veins under eyes need some orange, Red marks/pimples need green. It’s crazy!! It’s insane!! And yet magic. Ever wondered why your Concealer looks ashy, whereas on others it look flawless. Correctors are
your answers. May be one day I’ll rant more and write more on this corrector topic.
For now let’s head on the review :
Packaging/Texture/Pigmentation: Easy sqeezy Tube with brush tip applicator. When I used the LA Girl Pro HD Concealer in Fawn and Warm Honey the brush was hard. However the LA girl team has improved/worked on the packaging and made the brush tip super soft. Thumbs up LA team .Very light and very travel friendly. The texture is thick yet creamy and it easily blends. The pigmentation is insane.
Shade: The orange shade is pure bright orange shade and not a milky orange or the peach orange.
Performance: As I mentioned the pigmentation is so insane that only 1-2 dots are enough for 2 eyes. For the face/upper lip area you can do a pin point technique. It blends easily but if there too much product; the orange shade will peak through the Concealer as the orange is bright orange. It stays for long. I have seen that if you use the corrector in efficient way, even a tinted moisturizer on the top of it is enough to eliminate any darkness. So if I wear it under a BB cream/Tinted moisturizer it stays intact for about 5 hours, then I can see that it is fading. Under the Concealer it fares well, the staying power depends on the Concealer. With my MNY fit me Concealer I see that the fading happens only after about 8 hours. So the performance is really good for the price they come in.
Is it for everybody? : I dont think so. It will work for Dusky, deeper skin tone easily or the fair-medium skin tones with the deep dark circles. If you are fair with minimum dark circles, the orange might peak through your base, Concealer. You have to tone it down. How you ask? By adding peach to it I guess, not really sure. I have read many reviews in international blogs and almost all of them have the same opinion.
Affordable, Insane Pigmentation, very light and travel friendly packaging, Good staying power, Works well with Deeper/Dusky skin tones and for deep dark circles.
Might be too orange for fair beauties
I called them Concealer $3 Miracle and I call these a miracle too. Yeah we have to pay double the price in India, but it’s worth it. Tell me which other brand gives tube full of Orange corrector at 500 bucks eh?
Do you use a corrector? Which one are you using right now?
Live life to the fullest

Works well as corrector for my skin tone… This looks like a good budget corrector…need to check out the shades… On my wishlist is Bobbi Brown peach corrector.. Nice review..

I have used a lipstick as corrector long back, not anymore there is a reason to it..I better do a post soon 🙂
Yes pls do a post… I need to know the reason now…
hehehe…. to answer ur (almost) last question, there is an orange corrector available in India around INR 200 something from the brand ‘Star’s Cosmetics’…. i have used that in one of my fotds also… pretty decent, see if u like it! cannot compare though… anyway getting this too.
I have used a Star cosmetics Concealer long back. The experience isnot that good, it was oily and in one month it grew fur…errr .
So I never had a courage to try corrector =)) Great that it works for you 🙂
I’ve dark circles and never tried an orange corrector…..this one is affordable but it looks a bit too orange, I might skip it….nicely reviewed 🙂
Yeah, for fair skintone it is a bit much. Thanks :*
Never did color correcting cause straight out I never went for that flawless base look :’-D But I think buying this concealer is a MUST now!! 😀 The swatch color looks so pretty <3
Hehehe. I am not bothered either but that whole correcting thing excites me 😉
I am using some of these as contouring agents & I will say I absolutely adore these! They do such a fantastic job 🙂
Lovely review babe!
Yeah. They blend so well and pigmented.
I need to to try one for contouring now 🙂 Thanks :*
I haven’t used any corrector yet but it looks very promising. Will try once, thanks for sharing this helpful post 🙂
Glad this helped 🙂
I have been wanted to try this for long but dint get yet. I generally use an orange lipstick when I feel like color correcting as I am not a pro when it comes to orange correctors . Lovely review 🙂
This is worth a shot.
This concealer is in my bucket list for a long time! After reading your review, I am tempted to buy it asap! Great review!
Its worth a shot. Thanks 🙂
I have never tried a corrector… But you have given a nice and detailed review 🙂

I haven’t tried any corrector yet,actually I don’t know how to use them. Heard a lot about this L.A Girl corrector. nice and a detailed review..:-)
Its like apply and blend blend blend 😀
I have minimum under eyes now 😀 but somehow still my BB cream makes me look weird… I need to buy one I guess 🙂 thank you for making the breakdown so simple :*
Glad this helped 🙂 :*
Perfect reviw darling, great job!!!
I might consider this as i need a correcter for myself.. i m eyeing the kryolan one bt n miss claire one as well.. Lol
If the dark circles are deep it will work. Hehe Whatever works for you.
I guess you can get hold of kryolan one easily 🙂
I don’t have dark circles rather have red circles!! After reading this post,I think I badly need a corrector to correct the red marks, but which one to buy, Swathi? Orange one won’t suit me,I think.
Green counteracts Red. So green corrector I think 🙂
I have bought two shades from the same range and am loving the texture. i thought they would be creamy and thick but the light weight bendable texture has bowled me over.
Yeah. It only looks thick but blends beautifully 🙂
Desperately need a concealer that can hide stubborn dark circles, everything I’ve tried have failed me. Would like to try this one…
Do try this, its very good for the deep ones.
I am off for an purchase 🙂 awesome review 🙂
Thanks Pankhuri 🙂
looks dope…loved the peachy orange and even at 500 bucks I would call it a steql..I’m getting other shade because you said it will be too orange for minimum dark circle fair skin combo 🙂
Yeah I feel that as even on me I have blend very nicely 🙂
