Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

Hey there,

In the beauty blogging community, there are many products which receive "cult status". They are products which everyone loves, they are very hyped up and every girl wants to try them.

One such product is the Collection  Lasting Perfection Concealer. Anyone else want to still add the 2000 to Collection's name or is it just me?

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

Now this concealer and me had a previous relationship which was way before I blogged, let's just say it wasn't a good relationship. I found the concealer cakey, a funny colour (thought thats because I picked up the wrong shade... I was young and inexperienced) and just not great. We argued all the time, it got in late from the pub it was just messy and the concealer was relegated to the drawer of doom (a place in my room which is where all make up products I don't like go to live the rest of their lives).

However, just before Christmas after asking during the #bbloggers chat what people's favourite concealers were, I decided to bite the bullet and try again with this concealer, this time I picked up the lightest shade they do (Fair), tried again and....

I have to say my opinion changed. With the help of my concealer brush and a little more skill than I had last time I tried it, the concealer works well under my eyes battling the dark circles. I no longer have to suffer any cakey-ness because I have a brush that will help me conquer that and the lightest shade is light enough for a pale face like me.

Saying all this, it is not the holy grail, perfect concealer that some people make it but it is one that I will probably repurchase when I run out. 

Lots of Love,


  1. For me this is an excellent little concealer for the price, I just need to find a lighter shade that better matches my skin :o) Xx

    1. I agree! They totally need to make a lighter shade! x

  2. I love love love this concealer! The shades are very limited though, and so shop ever seems to have the one I want! But for the price it's a great concealer for me xx

  3. They should most definitely have a better shade range, I'm pretty lucky that I can get away with the lightest :) My makeup draw is full of old tubes of this with the name all rubbed off, should definitely have a sort out!

  4. I love this concealer but the shades are so limiting! I can only wear the lightest one when I have a tan! x
