BEAUTY RAVES : COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER (WARM / MEDIUM)


One look and you can tell that this tube is well-loved (translated: over-used). If there's one good example of a beauty product that I've tested first before publishing a review, this is definitely it! I bought it a month ago and I've never stopped using it ever since.

A wee bit off topic. Recently, I've been obsessed at watching Youtube, and here's my favourite of all time... Amelia Liana! She's living in London and she has a blog (http://amelialiana.com/). I frequently visit her Youtube channel as part of my happy-me time! She's so classy and sophisticated. Her accent is my #AccentGoals (Wait! Is there such a thing?!) and her videos are well curated. Yes, I love her so muchie and I find her suggestions reliable and effective.



She usually uses NARS creamy radiant concealer but I find it too pricey for a concealer. I do have the dupe which is Maybelline Fit Me concealer (she uses that on some tutorials) and this one too. Collection Lasting Perfection concealer is popular for its concealer + highlighter abilities. No wonder it's one of the most sought-after concealers from then till now. SRP is £4.19 (about Php 300)


CMK HAPPY THOUGHTS
I won't lie. I like this better than Maybelline Fit Me concealer (Review HERE). I like the consistency of this one. It doesn't cake on me quickly unlike the former. It has a 16-hour promise but to be honest, I don't put my makeup on for more than 12 hours. Even so, that's a plus. I like that the product is so easy to blend and clasp in an instant like a second skin!

I've made a quick comparison below. On your left is CMK with concealer and on your right is a bare face with L'oreal Foundation. Notice that the left side is more radiant than the right one. 

 


CMK WISHFUL THOUGHTS
Pretty obvious... the packaging! The letters are fading and I think the whole tube is not rim-full of product. Colour selection is not as diverse as well. When used alone, it starts to show signs of creases after 5 hours.

TIP: Make sure that your concealer is one to two shades darker than your skin/foundation. This will add a bit of a highlighting effect especially when applied on your under eye. Also, to counteract the creases, try to use a setting powder (usually matte). This will prevent the concealer from wearing off too quickly.


CMK THINKS
I can't wait to be back in London to do so many things. One of which is to go makeup shopping and buy another tube of this baby! I'm not sure if you can see it on picture but believe me: in real, 3D life, you can tell that it add flawlessness and glow! -CMK
