Con-cealabration!

I enjoy reading various blogs to keep up to date with new or must have products, and an item that has been recommended by so many is the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. I am a firm believer of Mac Studio Fix Concealer, my one pot lasted me more than a year and it was extremely good. However, when it finally came to the end of its life, I was tempted to buy this inexpensive product to see what all the fuss was about. And boy I’m glad I did..

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer Light 2

I have always been a sufferer of dark circles from a young age. It’s not because I don’t get enough sleep, or that my body is dehydrated, I just think it is an ugly thing that I inherited. It’s always been a worry of mine as no one wants to look like something from Halloween every day of the year, however since discovering the Studio Finish Concealer in NW20 I’ve managed to keep any harsh blemishes and discoloration at bay. I’m also a fan of Benefit’s Erase Paste in medium as its quite thick it covers anything up very easily. I’d still happily use these products, but for £4.19 for the Collection concealer, which works just as well, it seems like a waste of money to keep buying expensive products.

Picture One: You can see how dark my circles are before any makeup is applied (I do apologise!)

Picture Two: I dotted the concealer around the problem area, putting larger spots in the corners of my eye where it appears the darkest.

Picture Three: I then used a Real Techniques Base Shadow brush to blend it into the skin – this brush is great for blending. My beauty must haves are the Real Technique brushes. They  are simply amazing and work absolute wonders. 

Picture Four: After a bit of concealer and a groom of the eyebrows it is obvious my eyes are a lot brighter. There is still a slight blue tone, however in this picture I had not set the skin with foundation or a powder. Foundation would help cover this up completely.

My Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer is in colour Light 2, which works great with my skin tone and blends nicely with my Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NW20.

So if you want a product that is as good as an expensive one, but a fraction of the price – then head to anywhere near you that stocks this product – you won’t regret it!
