Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer | Review




Hey girlie's!!!

 The other day when repurchasing my all time favourite concealer, the 'Collection Lasting Perfection' i realised I've never done a review on it before, silly me. Ive been using this concealer for years and have gone through so many tubes, but i just love this concealer so much i wont ever stray from it and no matter how many concealers i try they never really come close to Collection's offering.

The Lasting Perfection Concealer comes in a little plastic tube (beware the writing rubs off the packaging almost instantly) with a doe foot applicator, there's 4 shades to choose from in the collection, Fair, Light, Medium and Dark. I always buy the shade 'Fair' for under my eyes as i like a nice brightening concealer for under the eyes but then i also use 'Meduim' for any blemishes i might have. 

The consistency of this concealer id say is quite thick and creamy, it's really easy to work with and blends out beautifully and provides full coverage without looking cakey, it also covers blemishes and dark under eye circles superbly. Another little use for this concealer is that it helps conceal and fill pores really well too, brilliant!!! I find the best way to apply this concealer is either with your fingers or i like to use my 'Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush' just for that flawless finish.

The concealer claims to have super long lasting 16 hour wear coverage, i do agree that this is a super long lasting concealer but id say more like 9-10 hours than 16. The only negative i have about the concealer itself it the fact it can cling to dry patches, for instance if i have a spot that's healing and i use the concealer to cover it i end up making the spot more visible as the concealer doesn't really blend in it just clings, lucky enough i don't really suffer with spots or break outs so its not too much of an issue for me, but if you was to buy this concealer for that purpose keep that in mind.

All in all this is one fabulous concealer and I'm pretty sure i will continue to repurchase this for a very long time, its also a nice affordable concealer too priced at just £4.19, such a beauty bargain. 

Have you tried this concealer??? What did you think???

  1. I've had this for a long time and I LOVE it - long lasting, smudge proof and great price. The shades aren't brilliant but I can live with it and I doubt I'll be splurging on NARS as long as this little gem is around! Xx
