When I placed my online order for the L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealers Fawn was sold out everywhere. Apparently it’s the most popular shade for highlighting (I’ve been seeing it all over YouTube.) After venturing out to the beauty supply stores outside of my ‘hood I finally found Fawn and quickly snatched it up and a backup of Toffee. They had plenty of the concealers in stock and they were $1.99 so now I know where to go when I need to restock.
Fawn is very similar to Toffee but it leans more yellow where Toffee leans more orange/salmon. Here is a comparison…
Both shades work for me but I feel Toffee is better for a more natural looking everyday highlight where Fawn is good for a more defined highlight that stands out. I would probably wear Fawn when I’m going out and wearing slightly heavier makeup. Here I used Fawn to highlight under my eyes, forehead, bridge of nose and chin…
I prefer Toffee to Fawn as it looks more natural on me and since it leans more salmon it corrects my under eye circle better while concealing. Since Fawn leans more yellow it highlights well but I have to use more to correct my dark circles which causes creasing over time, and it’s slightly too yellow for my taste. I think I’ll try using Fawn over Toffee to see the outcome, may be the perfect combo to correct and highlight my raccoon eyes at the same time. You can see my full review on the L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer along with swatches of Toffee and Chestnut here.
Love this concealer..I use both Fawn and Toffee myself. I find that mixing them together gives me my perfect foundation shade. Oh and I love your blog as well!!
Glad you are enjoying the blog. Thank you so much, I’m going to try that!
I love what you have done with them! I’m not sure what I have been doing wrong in applying them.
While we are talking about concealing, could you tell us about the rest of your face, please?
Thank you. MAC Matchmaster Foundation, Ben Nye Banana Powder and Neutral Set, MAC Raizin Blush and Sleek MakeUp True Color Lipstick in OMG… At least I think that’s what everything is lol
I have seen those in BSS’s and never thought to us one. Thanks!
Have you tried toast? I have it to highlight but I think it makes me look a little gray. I am going to try toffee. Also, do you think chestnut is good for concealing under eye dark circles?
I don’t have Toast but it does look a little too cool, probably why it looks gray. Chestnut matches my complexion perfectly so I use it to conceal dark spots. Your under eye concealer should be 1 or 2 shades lighter than your complexion so if you’re darker than me it may work for you. You can probably add a dab of Toast to lighten it. Hope that helps!
Erica, I love, love, love your blog. I get a lot of good information and new products to try from your site. I have a question though. I am about the same complexion as you but when I bought the MAC Matchmaster the MUA suggested the 9.0 for me. I do have a little reddish undertone but it seems the 9.0 looks a tad darker on me now. What Matchmaster shade are you and what shade would you suggest for my NW45/NW50 skin?
I am glad that you are enjoying the blog and finding new products to try. I am a 8 in the Matchmaster Foundation and NW45. I would suggest 8 or 8.5 for you.
nice !!! Where did you find the concealer? I’m having a hard time locating it in Brooklyn
I looked it up and I believe it was Sam’s on Utica btwn President & Carroll. It was definitely in that area as there are a few over there.
🙂 thanks Erica!!! you are the best!

Where in Nyc did you find the La pro concealor?
I ordered online but I’ve spotted them in a few beauty supply stores in the Crown Heights area in Brooklyn. I am pretty sure that you should be able to find them in the Beauty 35 Hell’s Kitchen or Downtown Brooklyn locations.
Hello from the UK,
Great blog and info, thank you. I’ve been looking for a concealer to cover awful dark circles and stumbled across this brand and product on eBay.
Your blog was really helpful so have bought Toffee and Chestnut. Can’t wait for them to arrive! 🙂
Glad I could be of assistance! 🙂
Hey erica i was wondering if i wear nw50 for mac studio fix which concealer would be better for me toffee or chestnut? Btw i dont think i have yellow undertones because toast make me look ashy and i think im your skin color so you would be alot of people of which concealer i need
I use chestnut as a concealer
Great review! I am NC50 & 7.5 in Match master…what would be the equivalent in the LA Pro Concealer ( I do not have any red undertones, but yellow/golden only)? Also, do you know where I can get a chart of the undertones? Thank you.
I’d do a quick Google search for swatches!
I just found your blog since I just purchased the L.A. Pro concealers. I have used NC50 in the Mac line as a concealer and just recently found out about L.A. Pro concealers. I am trying to find out which L.A. Pro concealer will match the NC50.
Hey, have you ever used Maybelline New York (super stay full coverage)or Milani foundations (2-in-1)?..if yes, what’s your shade?
nope, neither one
What do u think for dark circles fawn ryt or toffee
Wich shade hides Ur dark circles well ?
For dark circles, it’s important to correct with an orange corrector first. Then you can choose whichever shade of concealer that suits your complexion/highlighting preferences.
