Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer


The next drugstore concealer I tried out is the Lasting Perfection concealer by Collection which I picked up for £4.19 at Boots. This concealer is available in four different shades - Fair, Dark, Cool Medium and Warm Medium; and again I went for the lightest available shade which is Fair. as it is the shade best suited for my skin tone.

As mentioned within the Rimmel Wake Me up concealer post, I love concealers in which you are provided with a wand applicator and don't need to head out to buy a concealer brush, they are so handy to take out with you in your handbag for a quick freshen up throughout the day. I found the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer to be truly amazing at covering up dark circles under the eyes, and blemishes on the face. I also found this concealer to cover up my cholesterol marks a lot better than the Rimmel Wake Me Up, and believe that if used alongside a darker shade it would provide excellent coverage of the marks. I will be purchasing the 'Dark' shade and testing this theory, so I will let you guys know the outcome in a later post! I think that the consistency is a lot thicker than that of Rimmel Wake Me Up which is why it does a much better job at covering up the imperfections. 

Overall I am really impressed with this product, and would highly recommend you guys check it out for yourselves if you are suffering from any problems like mine, or just want to cover up those dark circles or blemishes; so I will be giving this product a rating of 9/10. Hopefully with a darker shade mixed in the cholesterol marks will be completely unnoticable. 

Have you tried the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer? 

Thanks for reading!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer




Howdy howdy, so this post will be the first instalment of my 'Quest for the Best Concealer' posts in which I will be testing out a number of concealers in search for the one with the best overall coverage . I will be looking at both drug store and high end brands, and comparing their coverage through looking at how visible my Cholesterol marks are after use. I will then be giving them a score out of ten at the end of the post with one being terrible and ten being great; at the end of the 'Quest for the Best' posts I will do a summary post containing the concealers with the best coverage both from the drug store and high end so that you guys can grab the products with the best value for money.

The first drugstore concealer I have chosen to review is the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer which is priced at £5.49. This concealer is available in four different shades - Ivory, True Ivory, Classic Beige and Soft Beige; I purchased the Ivory shade as it is the lightest shade available and therefore the best suited to my skin tone. 

First of all I love concealers in which you are provided with a wand applicator and don't need to head out to buy a concealer brush, they are so handy to take out with you in your handbag for a quick freshen up throughout the day. I think that Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer is perfect for getting rid of those pesky dark circles under the eyes or any blemishes on the face as it covers them up no problem; however in my opinion it is simply not thick enough to cover up the strong coloured pigment of the cholesterol marks even I when applied it a couple of times. It is great value for money as only a small amount of the product is needed to cover up those dark circles, and it tends to last for hours before needing reapplication. Some issues I had with this product were its orange tone as it seemed slightly dark for my pale complexion, and the fact it seems quite glittery when exposed to any direct light - as much as I would love to look like Alice Cullen its not really the look I was going for.

So as this product is so good at covering up blemishes and dark circles I will be giving it a rating of 5/10, however it doesn't do a great job at covering those cholesterol marks up so I guess the search is still on for the best concealer for the job!
