LA HD Pro concealer in peach-
I have got some discoloration around my mouth and faint dark circles. A color-corrector works to hide such discolorations. There are many different color correctors that target different kinds of skin imperfections. Purple- cancels yellow, green- cancels redness, pink- cancels brown, orange- cancels blue, peach- cancels blue, yellow- cancels redness. LA HD pro concealers come in 28 colors currently and today I am going to review a much-hyped peach color corrector for dark circles and green/blue discolorations on the face. Keep reading on for my take on this particular product.

Packaging, texture and color- Comes in a light-weight, plastic tube which has a brush attached onto the opening which gives control of how much product one needs to squeeze out in a single application. It has a creamy, smooth texture that glides on easily and blends evenly, without having to try too hard. Color is true, light peach that does not look very prominent once its blended.
Pros and cons-
Travel- friendly and comes with an attached brush which leads to less wastage of the product.
Can even be worn alone if one has a pink undertone
Makes the concealer look better and feels light-weight on the skin.
Applies smoothly and does not dry down instantly, leaving time for blending it evenly.
Little bit goes a long way.
Does not have an overpowering smell
Does not settle into fine lines or make them look noticeable
Blends with the concealer without looking patchy
Does not need fancy tools to blend, just fingers would do
Cons- Too many layers of makeup can cause it to look blotchy (For example- primer, foundation, concealer and powder on it)
May not be suitable for every skin tone. For example- People with very prominent dark circles may benefit more using the orange corrector.
My experience and thoughts- I enjoyed using this concealer as it was definitely a new experience for me. I have never color-corrected in the past and had absolutely no problems in putting this one to use. So I feel that this is a beginner-friendly product. I used it under Maybelline fit-me concealer in the shade 20 called “Sand” and it made the concealer look better and true to its color. If it’s on its own, one can still notice greenish/bluish tones around my mouth, so I think the color corrector did a good job at hiding those.
Final rating- 4.5/5
