Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer in Light & Medium

Hey My beauties how are you all doing today :) :) 
Well you know the way you have to go through so many foundations to get the ONE that suits s
everything you want from it.  It could possibly take years of wasted money trying to find it well i know that's happened with me and I'm sure 90% of you out there are on the same boat.  Well to be honest its almost the same for concealers.  I have went through and tried out so many concealers in my life time to find the right one for my needs.  I suffer with dark circles and dark lids and also suffer with odd breakouts around the time of the month.  I also have some discolouration around my forehead due to sun exposure years ago. 
 It is very hard to find a concealer that is Medium to full coverage, covers up blemishes without looking cakey making them look worst, also a concealer that conceals dark eyes but also brightens them and not soak into fine lines and also budget friendly.  Awwww the list goes on and on.  Well I couldn't believe my eyes and luck when all in one month I find not one but two concealers that does what i want it to do :)  
I have already reviewed my first find which I absolutely adore and that is the Catrice Camouflage Cream Concealer.  Well Today I am revealing my next find The Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer 

I finally after about 2 years of hearing nothing but rave reviews about this concealer got my hands on it.  Where I am from The boots never stocked the Collection brand not until a few months back and now I can finally get it whenever I want so I decided to pick 2 shades as I didn't know which one would suit me 
Out of the four shades to choose from I decided to go with Light and Medium as I didnt know which one would suit my skin-tone more.  Plus it was summer when I bought them and I had a nice tan from the amazing weather we got so even if Light did not match me it would surely match my in the winter when my tan wears off 
The Packaging as you see it is a plastic tube with a twistable lid that contains a sponge tip applicator.  Its the perfect size for applying under the eyes around the nose and on blemishes even though i do not use the sponge for blemishes I use a separate brush for that.  
The writing on the packaging is already wearing off on one of my tubes as i use that more than the other but I wouldn't mind that as long as the product is good :) :) 

As I mentioned above I got two shades Light and Medium.  I found Light is too Light for me at the moment but its perfect for me to use for highlighting areas such as under my eyes between my brows etc Light is pink toned and perfect for anyone who is very pale or with a cool or neutral undertone.  Medium on the other hand is a perfect match for me and is yellow toned perfect for anyone with neutral or warm undertone.  The Fact that I fall into the Warm skintone & neutral undertone category I find both suit me fine.  
The consistency of this concealer is very creamy and semi thick and is super easy to blend in fact it literally takes seconds to blend out to perfection.  

Collection promises maximum coverage with a flawless finish not only that but promises to conceal for up to 16 hrs.  They also so that the concealer is water & transfer proof :) 
They were not wrong in their promises.  You only need the smallest amount to cover what you need to cover and I found even with this concealer been medium to full coverage it does not set into your pores or fine lines.  I can not believe how much of a natural finish I get from this concealer there is no tell tale signs that I use a concealer at all not even on my blemishes.  I have even found that you can get away with not using a powder over the concealer.  The one thing I did find is that it sets very quick so if using under your eyes apply to one eye first when finish apply to the other.  I like to use my e.l.f. Studio Angled Contour Brush to blend the concealer out or just use my fingers.
Lately I have been using both concealers the Medium is for my blemishes and everything else I want to cover up and the Light shade I use to highlight under my eyes more and between my brows down the bridge of my nose on top of my lip on the cheek bones and on my chin :) :) I Love the finish especially on my dull days I am going to post up a photo of before and after in the before photo I have everything from dark eyes to a horrible break out on my chin and mouth area oh yes and some vigorous plucking of eyebrows lol

In all I am totally and madly in love with this concealer its everything I wanted in a concealer and more.  
It conceals everything,  It doesn't settle into fine lines and large pores,  it doesn't need setting,  it brightens up area that needs to be brightened,  it lasts all day,  it doesn't budge or smudge,  it doesnt cake up,  it doesnt dry out and most of all its super affordable at just €6.49 each (at the moment boots.ie are doing a promotion buy 1 get 1 half price)  I Highly Highly recommend this concealer to everyone and I mean everyone if you havent tried it already it gets 10/10 marks for me.  If I could apply this as a foundation I would be a happy gal lol 
Have you tried this concealer yet?  What are your thoughts on it :) 
Until next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter

This is my absolute favorite concealer for blemishes(I use It Cosmetic bye bye under eye for my dark circles). Too bad they don't have this in Canada and I have to get them on ebay. You're so right, just a little tiny bit goes a long way.

this sticks in my new found wrinkles and makes them even worse. but it is great for spots without looking too cakey
