LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Illuminating Foundation Review



Hey guys! Today I am coming at you with ANOTHER foundation review. This time I am reviewing the LA Girl Pro Coverage HD long wear Illuminating Liquid Foundation (longest name ever haha). I got this foundation about 2 weeks ago and spoiler alert...I'M OBSESSED. But you have to read the rest of this post to know why.

What I look for in a foundation:
  • Good Coverage (Medium-High)
  • Long Lasting
  • Satin/Dewy Finish
  • Light/Medium Texture
Foundation Claims: 
  • High Coverage 
  • Illuminating
  • Long wear

The shade I got in my foundation: Warm Biege 

Amount of product: 28ml 



The foundation claims pretty much match what I look for in a foundation, straight off the bat. I had my eye on it for a good few months before I purchased it. I decided to use up my L'oreal Lumi Magique before buying it. I saw this foundation being featured a lot on YouTube by beauty gurus and it looked so amazing on their skin that the more I saw it, the more I wanted it. I even watched a couple beauty gurus who compared it to the Makeup Forever HD foundation. 

The foundation claims to be long wear, and I've definitely noticed that it lasts. I expect it to be melted off by the evening and its still stuck on my face. It isn't the way it first looked obviously, but it is definitely there. I would say it lasts about 10 hours, which is pretty good in my opinion. I'm at school for about 7 hours and hopefully it will last throughout the day. I'm on summer break right now so we'll have to find out when I go back. It also claims to be illuminating, which I can say is 100% true. I love the finish of this foundation. It gives the skin a beautiful radiance and makes the skin look super healthy. For someone who has combination skin and can sometimes get a little dry, it is the perfect finish. Oily skin babes may not be too into it as its quite dewy but if you get a good matifying primer and setting powder, it may work for you. 





The coverage is really nice. With one coat is covers most of my blemishes and looks really smooth on the skin. Any areas that need more coverage, I just apply a bit  more as it doesn't cake up too easily or I'll use concealer. 

 When it is first applied, I can definitely tell that I have makeup on, however after  a few hours it feels super light weight and you kind of forget that you have foundation on. 

.  Extras: 
Pros: 
- It's affordable. 
- There is a fairly wide shade range available. 
- It has sleek packaging. 
-It has a pump

Cons: 
- The foundation has a strange smell to it. It kind of smells like weak paint.  
- It oxidises a little bit.
-It transfers quite easily (one thing I'm not too fond of about this foundation) 



Overall, I am really loving this foundation. It could potentially be my favourite drugstore foundation. I've only had it for 2 weeks so I'll have to give it a month for a final statement on that but it's looking good. 

Here are a few links to where you can purchase it:

  1. I have oily skin but I still would like to give this a try because I've heard pretty much everyone RAVE about it! x It's a shame that it does transfer. You couldn't wear any light colour clothing then or you'd have to be very careful.

    I saw in the pictures that you also have their contour kit. Do you like it? I was thinking of purchasing it xx Nikita

    1. The transfer isn't great. I just need to tap my cheek and place it on a piece of paper or anything light and it turns brown! However it is a really good drugstore foundation as a whole. The contour kit is quite nice actually. Its one of those powders that once you touch your skin with it, it sort of sticks it self to that one spot, however it blends well so its all fine. I got it from beauty bay and was shocked at how small it is in person though

    2. That sucks! I was looking at the contour kit online as well and I couldn't decide between this one and the Sleek one. I think I'll be going for the Sleek one because I've swatched it and it is a great size. Thanks for the help! xx Nikita

    3. Definitely give Sleek ago because their products are always amazing so you're likely to get on very well with it
