In the past I've always used high end concealers, under the impression that they'd be longer lasting. But I never really got on with them, I just used them because I had to.
I've heard and read so many bloggers rave about the Lasting Perfection concealer from Collection. But can something that costs less than a fiver really be that great? I picked it up when I had a few spare Boots points on my card to see what all the fuss was about.
What www.boots.com says:
Ultimate wear concealer which provides full coverage for up to 16 hours of flawless skin.
For girls on the go, Lasting Perfection Concealer will take you from dawn to dusk and back again, with no need for reapplication. The ultimate wear concealer promises to conceal flaws, imperfections and blemishes again, for up to 16 hours. This skin perfecting, oil free product is also transfer proof and water resistant for full and long lasting coverage. It provides beautiful, blemish-free skin for every waking hour. Available in four shades Fair, Light, Medium and Deep.
When I started using this I couldn't get on with it. It's a light, creamy concealer with a doe foot applicator. I've been more used to thicker, potted types. But I persisted at trying to find a way that would work best with my skin.
I found that dotting it on with the applicator and blending it in with the Real Techniques deluxe crease brush works best.
It does brilliantly at covering blemishes, acne scarring, redness and just gives you genuinely flawless skin. I was really surprised at how well this photographs too.
As for staying power it really does last. Even if you don't set it without a powder. You can apply it in the morning and go about your day without needing to worry about touch ups.
Whilst the shade range isn't the best, if you can find one that suits you I suggest trying it. It's a cheap concealer but the performance is so much better than any I've tried from M.A.C and Benefit. Would repurchase again and again!
