Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair (01)

I’m still suffering from mild adult acne (oh the joys) and as such rely on concealer more than someone of my age should have to. Bitterness aside, that means I’ve tried and tested a few over the past 2/3 years and while lots of them were fine none were good enough for me to want to buy them again, even the expensive ones.

When my latest product ran out I remembered hearing about a great budget concealer but I couldn’t remember which one – if you’re one of the people who answered my cry for help, thank you again! While still not quite perfect this is literally the best concealer I’ve ever used and I’ll definitely make a repeat purchase.

Pros

- At less than £5 it’s super-cheap!

- It’s actually very cost-effective too, as a little goes a long way.

- The consistency is quite thick but it blends easily and doesn’t feel at all heavy or ‘cakey’.

- It gives excellent coverage with just a couple of dabs.

- It really does stay put for a long time.

- The Collection brand is owned by LF Beauty, who don’t test on animals (this isn’t to say the ingredients that go into the product haven’t been, however - here’s more info on animal testing).

Cons

- There are only 4 shades, the darkest of which (“Deep”) is probably still too light for those with darker skin.

- The writing on the tube does rub off very easily and can actually be a bit messy.

- The applicator is similar to that of a lipgloss so I do have some concern about how hygienic it is but frankly it’s so wonderful I’m willing to overlook it!

    I love this concealer, I dab it on the back of my hand first rather than using the applicator directly on blemished to avoid spreading yuckiness! However I bought my usual shade the other day and I swear it had changed completely…hope not

    I’ve been so interested in this concealer after seeing pixiwoo rave about it again and again. I don’t love the wand but I have other concealers with similar packaging and I find that it doesn’t really end up bothering me as much as I expect it will. I do hate when brands leave out dark skins in their shade ranges, though

    I am so frustrated that I have mild adult acne as well – it’s like my skin is worse now than it was as a teenager, (why beauty gods, why?!?) so I love this recommendation! :) we don’t have Boots in the US, but I’d love to try this concealer!
