My favourite drugstore concealer

If you haven't heard about the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer where have you been hiding?! It's presence is so well known in the blogger world and rightly so! 

For under a £5 this concealer is an absolute bargain! It has such amazing coverage that can tackle even the worst of breakouts! Definitely a life saver when I get hormonal breakouts every month, I just wish it had been about when I was a spotty self conscious 13 year old!

The concealer comes in a hard plastic tube,  with a twist off lid/applicator. Only bad point about the packaging is you will find the writing on the outside will fade off pretty fast, in fact the concealer in the photos has only been used a few times and you can see it's fading on the black circle already! Annoying!

The applicator itself is a doe foot wand which picks up the product easily. I apply it direct to my face from the applicator to avoid wasted product but if you are worried about bacteria you could apply this to the back of your hand first and then apply it to your face. To get the best results I find if you dab your finger to blend the product out it gives you the best coverage and a natural finish.

The formulation of the concealer is very creamy and easily blendable, and as I mentioned before it gives great coverage without looking to cakey or heavy on your skin. Although It can be a bit too heavy for the delicate skin on your under eyes though and you may find it will sit in fine lines and wrinkles, I personally just use this for spots and skin discolouration. Collection state it lasts for 16 hours, I can't vouch for this as I never keep my make up more than 12 or 13 hours but it is definitely very long lasting.

The collection lasting perfection concealer comes in four shades: fair, light medium and deep, my shade is 02- light. It looks a bit too dark in this photo, but I do have pasty pale hands at the moment.

Although I've just had a look at collection's website and it looks like the packaging graphics are slightly different and the shades have different names (fair, cool medium, warm medium and dark)- so the colours may be slightly different now. Has anyone tried the new ones? If you have are they still the same shades?

Anyways, this concealer is great! So inexpensive and lasts for ages! In the past some concealers have actually given me more spots but I've never had a problem with this one. I couldn't recommend it enough. Go buy it!...only if I've convinced you that you need it in your life though....(which you do)

You can pick one up in Boots for £4.19
