L.A. Girl Philippine #BeautyForAll Launch + Product Review + Giveaway!

Two months ago I attended L.A. Girl Philippines' #BeautyForAll Bloggers Launch held at Cerchio Grill in Quezon City. I honestly didn't know what to expect but I got surprised when I got there. The event was super intimate and most of my beauty blogger/vlogger faves were there! We were also greeted and welcomed personally and was handed our very own makeup train case full of L.A. Girl products after. Super kilig. Ganito mag event guys. Haha! Anyway, here are photos from the launch as well as my stash complete with swatches!


All of us who attended took home this pretty pink makeup train case filled with L.A. Girl products! When I opened it I squealed talaga sa tuwa! So without further ado, here are all the products inside the case, their descriptions, prices and swatches.  I know I said I'm gonna make a video, but I'm not yet ready pa guys. So ito muna! :)



L.A. Girl Pro Prep HD High-Definition Smoothing Face Primer

So I used this a lot of times and I love it! A small amount could cover the whole face na. It gives my skin that matte, silky, shine-free finish to prep it before I put on make-up. It's not sticky and glides smoothly & easily on the skin. It has no tint, just clear, so it blends well with any skin tone and skin type. Plus, it evens out my skin tone, covers huge pores and hides my fine lines and wrinkles! Whenever I use a face primer, my makeup stays longer and there's less time for touch ups. 


Pro Conceal HD High-Definition Concealer - Green Corrector

"L.A. Girl's HD Pro Concealer is crease-resistant with opaque coverage in a creamy, yet lightweight texture. The long-wearing formula camouflages darkness under the eyes, redness and skin imperfections. Provides complete, natural-looking coverage, evens skin tone, covers dark circles and minimizes fine lines around the eyes."

This one I tried using once but since I'm a noob (haha!) I didn't know how to use it. Haha! So anyway, this green corrector is used to neautralize redness. Use it to eliminate all your red spots. You can blend it in immediately or with your liquid foundation over it. 


Pro Conceal HD High-Definition Concealer - Orange Corrector

Same description as the one above but this one is to neutralize dark spots for medium/deep skin tones. I used it under my eyes to cover my dark circles. I got scared at first because it was too orange but I think it was because I applied too much. Oops. The secret is to just apply an ample amount or just a little bit and blend it in! But personally, I think their Peach Corrector would match my skin tone perfectly. I've been using Bobbi Brown's peach corrector for years now and for just P349 a tube (compared to BB's P1,450) this could be a nice alternative! It was not included in the case but I would buy one and try it out next time. :)

Swatches!

Pro Conceal HD High-Definition Concealer - Pure Beige

This one is my favorite!!! I use it when I can't deal with my dark circles and I have an important meeting or event to go to. In other words, I use it pag need ko mag mukhang tao. Haha! For someone who's not ma-makeup, it is very easy to use and very easy to blend in the skin. I am very choosy when it comes to concealers and whenever I find one that works for me, I stick with that product or brand for years. This is honestly one of them! I love that it perfectly matches my skin tone (and my dark circles haha), how it's lightweight, does not crease and does not melt after a few hours (I am super acidic). 

Price: P349


Pro BB Cream High-Definition Beauty Balm - Light/Medium


"HD PRO BB Cream is formulated without parabens and made fragrance-free to pamper sensitive skin and lavishly nourish skin with added Vitamin B3, C and E. The silky formula covers a wide range of skin tones with eight diverse shades. This is your all-in-one skin beautifier that primes, moisturizes and enhances skin tone."


For just P399 per tube, sulit na sha! You only need a small amount to cover your face. I use this whenever I'm in a rush but want a natural, flawless finish. I do not use liquid foundation often (pag may events lang) coz I'm a face powder kinda girl, but this is a nice substitute for both! If you don't want that heavy made up look, but still want light coverage, then this is for you! I usually apply this after I moisturize and then I just set it with my loose powder. :) It primes, moisturizes and enhances skin tone! :)

Price: P399

Pro Coverage High-Definition Longwear Illuminating Foundation

"PRO.coverage high-definition long wear illuminating liquid foundation is ideal for a flawless looking, full coverage finish. Lightweight formula is comfortable for all day wear. Paraben free formula with added anti-oxidants helps hydrate and improve the skin's appearance. Now available to extend the color range even further, an innovative white foundation mixer to adjust and customize color."

If you love liquid foundations and you love a long-wearing one that provides full coverage, then this one's a keeper! I use it whenever I feel like getting all dolled up and it stays all day! I also love how it does not cake and does not feel heavy on the skin. It's also very easy to blend and requires just a small amount to cover the face. Sulit for P799! 

Price: P799

Swatch of Matte Pressed Powder 

Pro Face High-Definition Matte Pressed Powder

"Get a flawless finish with PRO.face Matte Pressed Powder. This long wearing, oil controlling formula can be applied alone for a soft radiant look or over liquid foundation for fuller coverage."

I tried using this but I think the shade does not match my skin tone so it appeared lighter on me. I still loved it though! I think once I find my shade, I would be using it everyday. As I said, I'm a pressed powder kinda girl hehe. Anyway, the texture was nice & smooth and it glides on the skin easily when applied. I love how it has a mirror and a separate compartment for the sponge. Plus points! It also stays long and controls oil better than most powders. Sulit na for its price! 

Price: P549


 Strobelight Strobing Powder & Inspiring Brow Kit in Dark


Inspiring Brow Kit - Dark & Defined


"These defining eyebrow kits are sure to inspire, tame and frame. Each tin is packed with two brow powder shades, a flattering highlighter shade and a clear wax. Brow kit also includes tweezers and an angled brush with spoolie all the necessities needed for beautiful brows."



Swatched: Brow Kit highlighter, light brown shade & dark brown shade

Brows can make or break any look and L.A. Girl knows this because look how complete their kit is!!! This is all you need whether you're a beginner (like me mwahaha) or an expert. This shade is perfect for dark-haired girls like me. Fill in or shape your brows using the 2 brown shades (lighter for the top/inner and darker towards the ends), tame stray hairs using the clear wax and then highlight under and over your arches! Included in the kit is a small tweezer to remove unwanted strands and a dual-ended brush (angled & spoolie) to prep & design brows. Easy peasy!


Price: P599



Strobe Lite Strobing Powder - 90 watt


"Strobe Lite Strobing Powder highlights your facial features by creating more depth and dimension where light usually hits. The soft and silky powder adds a fresh glow to highlight cheeks, brighten eyes, sculpt nose, and enhance pout. Strobe Lite can be applied alone or over makeup for a perfect glowing complexion. Powder is paraben and fragrance free."

I love highlighters! I didn't know how to use it before, but I do now and it's magic. It's amazing how a small stroke could enhance any look. Always remember that you use highlighters to emphasize your features making them more obvious or prominent. I usually put some on the bridge of my nose to create an illusion and make it look smoother and slimmer. Hihi. I also use highlighter under my brows, cupid's bow, cheekbones, and outer corner of my eyes! :) Just apply a subtle amount for that natural, dewy, glowing look. :) 


Price: P699

Inspiring Eyeshadow Palettes in Daydream Believer / Fabulous & Fearless 



Inspiring Eyeshadow Palette - Fabulous & Fearless


"These glamorous eyeshadow tins are sure to inspire a diverse range of looks from natural, soft looks to dramatic, smoky to bright and colorful. Packed with five intensely pigmented shadows plus a complementary shadow liner. Beautifully showcased in jewel toned tins waiting for inspiration to strike!"

If you're feeling adventurous, then try out this palette! This is good for smoky effects and usually worn for events or parties. I think. Haha. I wouldn't know because I'm a nude palette enthusiast. Hihi.

Price: P599

"This gel liner has a rich and creamy water-resistant formula that glides on smooth without smearing or smudging for long lasting, all day wear. Professional fine eyeliner brush expertly defines eyes to create that ideal smokey or dramatic look effortlessly."

Pot and applicator brush

Swatch!

I honestly haven't tried this because I'm a liquid liner kind of girl. But I've seen and heard a lot of good reviews. It's easy to apply and the subtle shade makes the eyes pop without being too obvious. :)

Price: P319 

OMG love these palettes!


Beauty Brick Blush Collection - Glow

Shades: Spice, Glam, Glow, Pinky

So this is how it looks on morena skin. It's lighter and more subtle when applied. Perfect for that natural glow! Would love to try SPICE as well. It's darker than glow but it is more peachy and I think it also suits morenas like me! Hihi. 

Price: P649


Beauty Brick Eyeshadow Collection - NUDES

"Two gorgeous must-have eyeshadow palettes filled with a dozen majorly pigmented shades ranging from super wearable looks like Nudes to more dramatic looks like Smoky. L.A. Girl's Beauty Brick Eyeshadow Collection gives you the best of all colors to allow you to create stunning looks!"

Last 4 shades (from right to left)

For someone who's not an expert when it comes to make-up this palette is one of my faves! I am obsessed with nude eyeshadow palettes. I wear neutral or nude eyeshadow everyday to brighten my eyes and just make it look more alive. Don't you agree? This palette has just the right amount of color and shine. It's super versatile because it can give you different looks for different occasions. Love. 

Price: P649



L.A. Girl Fiber Lash Mascara - Black 

"Fibers instantly adds volume for that false-lash look. Water resistant formula with flexible silicone brush instantly amplifies lashes. Added panthenol helps condition lashes."

I found my new favorite mascara! Tried and tested, it elongates the lashes and it stays all day! Also does not smudge even for girls with oily eyes/lids like me. Been using this for almost 2 months now and I love it. It could be quite challenging to remove so I suggest using an oil cleanser or hardcore makeup remover. :)

Price: P460 (on Lazada)


Line Art Matte Eyeliner - Espresso

"High intensity pigment delivers rich color pay-off in four fabulous shades. Create precise thin lines and dramatic thick lines in one even stroke. Quick drying, smudge-proof and water resistant formula provides long lasting wear while soft flexible fine tip brush ensures even and playful lining."


I mentioned earlier that I only use liquid liners--this one I love! It's highly pimented and it has this staying power. The applicator delivers high precision lines that even noobs like me could easily play with. It's waterproof and smudge proof! Just what I need! :)

Price: P599
