I was in need of a new concealer and decided to go for the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer as I knew it was a blogger favourite and shockingly I hadn’t tried it yet. The concealer comes in 4 shades; Fair, Cool Medium, Warm Medium and Dark. I decided to go with Cool Medium as I felt it matched my skin tone the best. Depending on your skin tone you may struggle to find one that suits perfectly, which I find a little surprising since its one of their top products surely they would want to expand it?
Anyway the packaging is pretty basic but to be honest I’m not really fussed about the packaging of a concealer. It has a tube design with as doe foot applicator which can be used to apply the product. The only complaint I would have about the packaging is that the ink seems to wear off really easily; a lot of the writing has come off mine already. I tend not to use the applicator to apply the product; instead I apply a little to my finger and then apply and blend where needed. The product is quite thick and creamy so I find that it is much easier to apply like this.
I find that Collection’s Lasting Perfection Concealer is great at covering up and blemishes and redness. I also haven’t had any problems with it sticking to any dry areas which I great. Due to the thickness of the product I would say just be careful if you’re using it on your under eye area as I find it can look a little cakey and can settle into any fine lines if too much is applied here. It does work really well in this area to cover any dark circles but just make sure you apply a little at a time to ensure it looks okay. I find that it lasts really well and haven’t felt the need to apply anymore throughout the day. As you can see from the swatches below it has great coverage and really reduces the appearance of the two freckles on my hand.
Overall I would really recommend this product especially if you find a shade that suits your skin tone.; like I said at the start I hope they bring out some more shades so that there is more for others. This is an amazing concealer for the price and you can pick it up for £4.19 from Boots or Superdrug.
Have you tried Collection’s Lasting Perfection Concealer, of you have what did you think? Or would you recommend a different concealer?
