L.A. Girl recently released a few new shades of the infamous Pro Conceal HD Concealer, correcter shades in yellow, green and orange. I just had to try the Orange Corrector as these dark circles under my eyes are not letting up, and not getting enough sleep lately is definitely not helping. In order to truly hide dark under eye circles you need to correct before you conceal. My under eye circles tend to be a shade of greyish blue and the best way to cancel out these tones for deep complexions is with peach and orange correctors.
The corrector comes in a squeeze tube with a brush just like the rest of the line, which some may find unsanitary. You have to squeeze gently as to not disperse too much product since you only need a little bit. You can use the brush to apply but I squeeze mine onto a metal palette to work from there.
The Pro Conceal HD Orange Corrector definitely leans more Salmon than the other orange correctors that I own. Here is a comparison…
L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Orange Corrector
Kett Cosmetics Creme Correcter in Shade CC Dark
Orange Corrector from NYX Conceal, Correct, Contour Palette in Deep
Orange Corrector from Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Kit in Deep
The corrector does a great job of hiding dark circles, all you need to do is put a small amount on your ring finger and gently pat and blend until your dark circles are covered. Other shades of the L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer as well as other concealers easily apply and blend on top. You just have to be careful not to apply too much or you’ll get creasing. Trust me, I know as it happened to me the first time that I used it. Here it is in action…
Just like the rest of the L.A. Girl Pro HD Concealer line, the Orange Corrector does not disappoint. It’s creamy and very pigmented, blends well and does exactly what it’s supposed to do. If you’ve never tried an Orange Corrector before this would be a great place to start. It even performs well enough to use in your kit, and it’s so inexpensive that you can keep plenty of backups on hand.
Available at Amazon & ikatehouse $2.99-$4.99
Also check your local beauty supply store that carries this concealer as they should have the new shades stocked by now. If you’re in NYC, I found mine at Beauty 35 on 35th St & 8th Ave.
Gonna be a little frugal first and check out the LA Girl and NYX correctors….my dark under eyes are pretty serious lol. TFS
Lol I can relate. You’re very welcome.
Erica do you get any stinging or burning sensation in your eyes from this? I currently use the L’oreal studio secrets anti-dull primer corrector. I like it a lot in terms of coverage but it causes eye irritation and redness. I need to replace it so this would be a good option. great review as always.
Thank you, Sammy. Nope, no eye irritation at all.
I’m around MAC NC35 and do you think this would suit lighter skin tones? Maybe I should mix it with a lighter concealer to create a DIY salmon concealer? Btw I’m coming from mixing orange lipsticks+concealer as a color corrector so this one will be my first orange corrector. It’s so impressive how it hid your dark circles so I’m compelled to buy this 🙂
Hi Vanessa. I’ve seen this reviewed by really light complexions and it still worked. I would suggest to use less and build it up as necessary. When you layer your foundation and your regular shade of under eye concealer it will balance it out. I hope that helps 🙂
Are you not a fan of the HD concealors? Because infamous means being famous for a bad deed or quality.
I am a fan of the concealers. The term is used in the makeup community for popular products that have tons of reviews, both good and bad.
Infamous means being famous for a bad deed or quality. The LA girl concealors are well loved.
I know what infamous means and as I responded to your last comment how the term is used in the makeup community. The LA girl concealers are well loved, but not by everyone as with any product. Some people don’t like them as they experience creasing and the extreme highlight with flash photography. (Which I also get sometimes.)
i’m late to the party but I just literally saw someone use this in a video and was thinking of getting it for my dark spots on my cheeks. Definitely going to pick some up today. I’m in NY too 🙂
It’s a very good corrector. Especially for dark skin due to the rich color!
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.
