LA Girl Pro Concealer vs MAC Pro Longwear Comparison
When it comes to makeup, one thing I can't live without is concealer. The MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is my holy grail product. Everyone seems to rave about the LA Girl Pro Concealer being a dupe for the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer so i decided to see what all the hype was about. 


First off lets start with the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. It comes in a small glass bottle with a pump. The packaging is ok but could do with some improving 1. because the bottle is glass, I dropped and smashed my last one (luckily it was nearly empty) 2. the pump has issues! You try to squeeze out a tiny amount but end up with alot more than you need. Apart from the packaging this is one of the best concealers I have used. It is quite a runny liquid but provides full coverage. I have extremely dark under eye circles and need full coverage. Most concealers don't do the job but this one works perfectly. I also buy a lighter shade than my foundation so I can highlight with this too. Overall it gives full coverage without being heavy, doesn't crease, lasts all day and the bottle lasts me around 2-3 months.

The LA Girl Pro Concealer is now available in the UK on the Beauty Bay Website. I ordered a few shades and found even the lightest shade comes up quite a dark pink. The packaging is a squeezy tube with a brush applicator. The consistency of this concealer is quite thick but again provides full coverage. If you are going for that no makeup makeup look then this ins't for you as I said the consistency is pretty thick.

So the question is, is the LA Girl Pro Concealer a Dupe for the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer? No. In my opinion it isn't. You can't call something a dupe just because they are both full coverage. The Pro Longwear Concealer is quite runny and even though full coverage appears on the skin more lightweight. The LA Girl Concealer is pretty thick as you can really see the difference from my swatches. It is definitely an alternative if you are wanting full coverage but it isn't the same as the MAC concealer. The shade range in the LA Girl Concealer isn't good for really pale skin tones whereas MAC has a very large shade range. 

In my opinion both concealers are good but for me I do prefer the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer as it isn't as heavy and has a more flawless finish. 

Have you tried either of these?

  9. I had no idea this was a dupe! I have the LA Girl but I find the opposite - it's so light I feel I have to layer loads on haha I will definitely keep trying with it though xx

    1. I tried applying it with different products and found either dabbing it with my finger or using a stipple style brush worked best :)

  11. Oh my goodness I love MAC's Pro Longwear concealer but that pump is a nightmare! I always end up dispensing way too much product that I need and end up wasting so much. They should definitely work on improving that, although poor packaging is not something that's gonna stop me from using that concealer- I love it way too much :)

  15. I recently picked up the LA Girl concealer from Beauty Base in the UK (The shop that sells perfumes) and really love it! I also got the orange concealer from them too which is great at counter-acting the dark circles under my eyes!
