LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Long Wear Illuminating Foundation Soft Honey And Tan
Today I want to review one of the popular drugstore brands which has wide range of makeup products from lipsticks, eye shadows, foundations to makeup setting spray. It is considered one of the most affordable high performance drugstore brand. In India, however the products are overpriced. I was looking for a dewy foundation at affordable price tag. So I ended up buying this illuminating foundation. So please read my review to know if it managed to impress me much or not.

My Overall Experience LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Long Wear Illuminating Foundation Soft Honey And Tan
Packaging: La Girl pro coverage illuminating foundation comes in a glass bottle with pump packaging. It has a black cap that fits snugly and shuts with a click. Despite being in a glass bottle, it is lightweight. I so love the pump packaging as it dispenses little quantity which is enough for achieving medium coverage. I really want other brands to come up with pump packaging too. It is convenient to carry it, while travelling too. One can find full ingredients list printed on the glass bottle.
Shades: It is available in 16 shades. I was confused with shades available even after checking the swatches online. But after checking several YouTube videos, I realized my shade will either be Tan or Soft Honey. For your reference, I am NC 42 in Mac studio fix fluid foundation. So I ended up buying both the shades. As offer was going on, I got both the shades for Rs 1500 combined. I found Soft Honey and Tan are almost similar but Tan is little deeper than soft honey. Soft Honey would be a perfect match for people with NC 42, and Tan will suit people with NC 43.5. I use soft honey most of the times, but when I get tanned, I mix both the shades and apply. This range also has white foundation which can be used to achieve your own custom shade.
Coverage: Coverage is in between medium to full coverage. It is quite buildable. With one pump, I am able to achieve medium coverage but with second pump I am able to build up the coverage and most of my imperfections get concealed efficiently. It conceals redness effectively due to balance of yellow and peach shades in this foundation. It conceals darkness around my mouth area, under eyes, fore head quite effectively. However, I could not much find any effect on refining pores. I would advise you guys to use a primer underneath your base if you have large evident looking pores. Though it does not accentuate pores, but it does not hide it either. It does not look patchy or cake, also does not highlight any kind of imperfections.
Texture and Finish: This foundation has liquid like consistency, not runny like Mac face and body foundation but not creamy either. It has beautiful texture and blends within seconds in a jiffy. Even beginners won’t face any problems while using this foundation. After applying I felt it remained wet for a long time. It takes time to set completely. Initially it looks little shinier and wet. After a while it sets into beautiful dewy finish. My skin keeps radiating a luminous healthy glow. I felt as if am using a foundation from some high end brand.
Longevity: My skin looks radiant and dewy whole day whenever I use this foundation. I require no touch ups in between. In normal weathers, it lasts for a whole day, however during humid weather, I noticed the foundation faded near my T zone area and looked little patchy in there. So I doubt its performance during summers, except summers this would be my first choice among several foundations I have, all round the year.
Availability: These are available online at Nykaa and Amazon. You wont find these products in stores.
