There is nothing I love more than an absolute ‘too-good-to-be-true’ bargain. And that’s what the this concealer is! At £4.19 for a tube (a tube that lasts a really long time, FYI) the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer is one of my all-time favourite make-up products that you will always find in my make-up bag. Last year I blogged about the Collection Cover up Stick which is actually the sister concealer to this one. I love that little stick for last minute spots that pop up when I’m out and about, but it’s this liquid concealer that is one of the primary products in my kit.
I first began using this concealer in 2012 to hide bags and dark circles under my eyes. I would apply on top of my foundation. But after a good few years of getting to know this product, I now often apply this before my foundation (depends on how the old bags are looking). This concealer has also been a life saver for the horrible red dry skin I have around my nostrils (due to my god-awful allergies). I dab a little around the nose area and then blend it in using my fingers or a sponge. It’s such a smooth texture and so easy to blend. I opt for no.1 which is fair as I’m quite a pale person, but it also comes in cool medium, warm medium and dark.
This concealer is also great for hiding my spots. I dab a little onto the spots before I apply foundation, and maybe a little more after I’ve done my full face of make-up (again, it totally depends on how the spots are looking). I’ve tried a few other concealers but found that this one is the one for me. It lasts longer than other concealers I’ve tried and it is well within my budget, even leaving me a little pocket change – what’s not to love? Click here to buy.
