This concealer has been a constant hit in the blogging world for quite some time now. So many people love it, including myself and it is seen as the most popular and best drugstore concealer available. A lot of people have already decided whether or not they like this concealer, but I thought I’d add my opinion on Collection’s most famous product to the mix, for those of you who have never tried it.
The Lasting Perfection Concealer is described by Collection as a product that can conceal flaws, imperfections and blemishes for up to 16 hours. The water-resistant and transfer-proof formula provides the ultimate long-lasting finish, especially when used in conjunction with the Lasting Perfection Foundation and Powder. It’s also apparently won multiple awards, who knew? I guess it’s not really surprising, knowing how many people love it.
I have been using this concealer for about a year now. I tend to use this on blemishes only, I find it to be a little too thick and drying for under the eyes, although it’d probably cover up any dark circles pretty well. The formula does a fab job at hiding any redness or scars. It’s quite thick which is what helps keep it in place all day, but it doesn’t look cakey, when applied correctly. The concealer is definitely water-resistant, if it starts raining, your makeup won’t be running down your face, which is always a good thing. Once dried, It doesn’t seem to transfer onto anything. One of the only things that I don’t love about the formula, is that it tends to turn a little orangey after a couple of hours wear. This however hasn’t and won’t stop me from re-purchasing it in the future, unless I find something better of course! The concealer comes in 4 colours – Fair, Cool Medium, Warm Medium and Dark. I switch between Cool Medium in the Winter and Warm Medium for Summer. They are pretty good shade matches for me, but some of you may not be able to find your perfect colour. Mixing a couple of the shades may produce a better colour match for you, although darker skin tones will have trouble.

If you haven’t yet tried it, you really need to! A concealer that always seems to be out of stock online and in store proves that it’s the most loved drugstore product among bloggers and non-bloggers alike. You can purchase the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer from Boots here for £4.19.
