I remember trying the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair when it bloomed years ago but it turned out to be way too light for me and haven’t touched it since nor tried the other shades until back in August last year. I had decided to give it another shot. The two shades I have in this post is Cool Medium and Warm Medium.
Now where do I begin?
The first thing I had noticed was how much it has oxidised on my hand and that was when I had realised that the two medium shades were too dark for me. I threw warm medium in the bin right away. I was hoping to use the cool medium to counteract my dark circles but in the end, I haven’t actually used it since I had purchased it until a few days ago. The shade wasn’t quite right and it didn’t really do much. It did help a little bit but it didn’t look natural.
I did purchase the shade Fair a few days after purchasing the two medium. This seems to suit my skin colour more after it had oxidised. I have used it under my eyes a few times but I wouldn’t say that it is a favourite of mine. It works better when I use a beauty blender to blend it out to make it feel a little less heavy under the eyes therefore the coverage is more medium I would say. It can be buildable but it will look cakey regardless of where you use it. Concealing spots is a hit and miss for me. This formula will accentuate any dry flakes you may have so for dry skin, this is a no no.
It’s quite thick and many people do not like thick concealers under the eyes. You do have to work fast to blend it out as it does dry quick but it stays put on me all day. Weirdly enough, right now, I’m not too fussed about this packaging, I’m more focused on the formula and performance of this. I would give this a 3.5/5. For less than £5, it’s not too shabby. Shame about the limited shade range.
Have you tried this concealer before?
