Why “Off Duty Basics” Should be a Canadian Girl’s Go-To for LA Girl Cosmetics

As some of you Canadian beauties may already know, finding LA Girl Cosmetics at a reasonable price up north is nearly impossible. I’ve seen them sold in random beauty stores, but way overpriced- $9.99 for concealer when this is supposed to be one of the most inexpensive brands in the States???

Recently, I noticed walmart.ca selling the entire collection for a semi-reasonable price! However, in the back of my mind was offdutybasics.com, a discount website selling clothes & cosmetics, and I remembered they too sold LA Girl. Since I have a tendency to order things from the US that I can just buy here in Canada, I placed my order with Off Duty Basics and waited two weeks for my package to arrive.

After I placed my order, I did some math to determine whether it was worth it for me to have ordered from this site (and pay the conversion rate & shipping) or if I would’ve been better off just ordering from the Canadian Walmart site. Here’s my price comparison of how ordering LA Girl Cosmetics from the US saved this Canadian girl a ton of money…

{Prices shown will be in CAD and will include any tax if applicable}


Total (not including shipping): Off Duty Basics = $46.76, Walmart.ca = $76.16


LA Girl HD Setting Powder: Off Duty Basics = $5.33 x 1, Walmart.ca = $8.46 x 1

LA Girl HD Smoothing Face Primer: Off Duty Basics = $5.33 x 1, Walmart.ca = $8.46 x 1


LA Girl PRO BB Cream: Off Duty Basics = $5.33, Walmart.ca = $8.46


LA Girl Pro Conceal: Off Duty Basics = $4.04 x 1, Walmart.ca = $6.77 x 1
Just looking at the product purchased (not including shipping), I saved $29.40 CAD by ordering from Off Duty Basics! The only downfall is waiting two weeks for the order to arrive, but the savings in money definitely outweighs my patience!

  1. Thanks for comparing the 2 sources for LA Girl. I have a tendency to order off US sites too.
    I was able to recently find LA Girl from Clore Beauty supply – not sure if you have those stores where you are. I finally got my hands on that Pro Conceal!
