Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer!

I was killing time in Superdrug the other day, looking for any good offers, when I saw that Collection 2000 had a 3 for 2 offer on all their products. I was after a new concealer and know that the YouTube and blogging world is mad for the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer, so I thought this would be a great time to give it a try, and I might as well pick up a couple of thing while the offer was on, so I also bought a pressed powder and a liquid liner.

I couldn't wait to try this concealer, given all the great reviews I've heard, and I have to say I wasn't disappointed.

The product says it has '16 hour wear' and it transfer and water resistant. I haven't actually worn it for that long a period of time yet, but when I have worn it it has lasted beautifully. I have really dry skin but am also prone to blemishes, so concealers tend to either go cakey on my skin or not last on the areas and blemishes I want to cover. This did neither. It gives you a sense when you apply it that it is almost setting, and it didn't need layering or touching up as concealers often do with me. Whether it was subliminal because of the great things I've heard, or because of how it applied, I felt completely confident that it was staying in place, despite doing a lot of walking about and, I'm not gonna lie, sweating a bit (nice!). But it did stay on perfectly, I was complimented on how clear my skin looked, and it was a nice relief to get home and look in the mirror without worrying about how long that spot has been on show or my face has looked like it's melted/flaking away!

I like the more liquid concealers with doe foot applicators as they seem to apply more smoothly, look more natural, and allow you to really pinpoint imperfections. However, if concealing an active spot you might want to put it on your hand or finger first and then on your face to avoid spreading bacteria into your whole concealer.

The colour was actually perfect for me. I was wary due to the quite limited colour range (Deep, Medium, Light, Fair), but the shade Fair 1 worked really great for me. Although if you are really pale or dark skinned then these colours may not work for you.

I was really impressed with this concealer and am glad it lived up to the hype. I can see this becoming my staple concealer for a long time to come.
