I love trying new makeup products, but I never try too many foundations. I always buy a new foundation when one of my old ones finishes. This time, after finishing my Nykaa SKINgenius Foundation, I decided to buy L.A Girl Pro Coverage Illuminating Liquid Foundation. This foundation is pricey as compared to the Nykaa one, but as the product had good reviews, I ordered it.
Price: INR 1150 for 28 ml of product (BUY HERE)

My Experience with L.A Girl Pro Coverage Illuminating Liquid Foundation:
I bought the foundation online and so as I wasn’t sure about my shade I made a random guess and bought the color Fair. The shade came out to be little lighter than my skin tone, but I managed to make the color work.
I love the way this foundation blends and makes my skin glow. Yes, this is not a mattifying foundation but is still absolutely fine for oily skin ladies too. The foundation is said to contain ingredients which improve the skin appearance, which it actually does. Unfortunately, it does not help much in case of large pores.
The foundation gives medium to full coverage, depending on how is it applied. If applied using a brush, the coverage was a little better for me. Also, the foundation is buildable, and it does not look cakey even after second application.
The staying power of the foundation is good too, the product stays good for 6-7 hours. After 4-5 hours, it does kind of breaks out around my nose, but that is because of my super oily T-zone. This can be improved by regular blotting and a good primer.
I saw many people raving about this product which intrigued me to buy this and I am glad that most of the claims very absolutely true. It is a beautiful foundation with good coverage and long staying hours. Though the color I have is a little too light for me, so I would love to buy this again in a different color.
Pros of L.A Girl Pro Coverage Illuminating Liquid Foundation:

Cons of L.A Girl Pro Coverage Illuminating Liquid Foundation:
