L.A Girl Pro Concealer vs. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

So there has been some hype surrounding the L.A. Girl line lately - from their dupes of the Too Faced Melted Liquify Long Wearing Lipstick to the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer.

Being a long time user of MAC Pro Longwear Concealer ($24 for 9ml/0.30oz), I decided to give the L.A. Girl Pro Concealer ($7.20 approx on ebay for 0.25oz) a try. I know you can probably find the LA Girl for less, but I couldn't find it in Toronto, and just ended up on Ebay.

Below are swatches of the two products - I would have to say that the LA Girl is ALOT thicker, and drier in consistency. I found that I needed alot more of the product to get the same result as the MAC prolongwear. You can see in the picture below that the LA Girl is drier. I am aware that I put more of the MAC product on my hand, but still when i thin it out, it still feels liquidy vs. thick and dry.

The one good thing about the LA Girl is the paintbrush tip so you can really get it where you need it and control the amount coming out. I know that the MAC glass tubes have a reputation of being hard to control the amount that is being dispensed. One pump = too much, 1/2 pump requires alot of work to slowly push the pump down because it's quite easy to be too heavy handed.

Overall - I think I am going to stick to the MAC - yes, it is about 3x more $ than the LA Girl, however, I am using MUCH LESS in the MAC then i am in the LA Girl....

Has anyone else tried this product? Let me know your thoughts!

  1. I've heard the nyx HD concealer is really good and comparable to the Mac prolong wear

  2. Thanks for the comparison! I haven't tried anything from LA Girl, but it's nice to hear they're releasing affordable products that are competing with higher-end brands! :)
