LA Girl Cosmetics recently launched some new items (or at least they’re new to me) on their site and I decided to scoop them up out of my own curiosity and of course to review them here. I got LA Girl Pro Contour Cream in Medium-Deep and Deep; LA Girl Pro Counter Powder in Medium-Deep and Deep; and LA Girl Just Blushing in Just Love (a bright pink) and Just for Fun (a bright orange).

NYX Full Coverage Orange Concealer vs LA Girl Orange Corrector

Color correctors can be awesome products, BUT do understand that most people likely don’t need them. There have been many advancements in concealer shades as well as improvements to full coverage foundation formulas (many are now SO much lighter in feel than their predecessors—check out the BECCA Ultimate Coverage foundation for instance) that many folks won’t have a need for a corrector in your makeup routine.

Look, I’m quite passionate about blush. I swear I start conversations with new people like “Hey, nice to meet you—do you like blush?” OK—maybe not that passionate but I do try to persuade more people to wear the stuff.

Anytime new blush comes out, I’m looking for it in the daytime with a flashlight (like that line one time in that Usher song). The new LA Girl Beauty Brick Blush Collection? OMG—amazing.

I have to say I’m very impressed with L.A. Girl Cosmetics—so far virtually everything I’ve tried has been great and the prices certainly can’t be beat. Only catch is they aren’t as easily accessible in stores—I’m sure I could find places that sell it in this grand city of New York, but I just order online for my sanity…lol. Next up is the L.A.
