Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

I have brought this great concealer last week. It’s not often that I rave about a concealer, its usually lipstick or lip balm or some other lip product but I’m so impressed with this one!




So let’s have a look at why I am so impressed with this.

The Packaging: The concealer is in a small tube with a doe foot application, so very similar to a lip gloss but slightly bigger. Not a major problem with the product but the print on the tub rubs off quite easily.

The colours: There are 4 colours to choose from, Light, Fair, Medium and Deep. I brought medium and feel it blends into my skin really well.

The price: Each cost £4.19, a very reasonable price for a very good concealer. I think it might be even cheaper in Superdrugs

The Texture: It’s a thick liquid that blends in very easily around the eyes. It also dries quite quickly and to a matte effect on the skin. I have greasier skin so I set it with a powder but you could get away with skipping this step.

The Coverage: I have incredibly dark under eye circle which I find difficult to cover. Even when it could look fine in the morning some concealers I use, transfer or rub off by the afternoon. With this concealer I find I still look quite respectable by the end of the work day.

I’ve heard about the rave reviews of this product but have never picked it up, usually forgoing it for something from another brand thinking this would never work- it’s from Collection 2000! Now I can’t believe I didn’t pick this up sooner!
