REVIEW | COLLECTION LONG LASTING CONCEALER

Some times all you need to look fresh faced and awake is just a bit of concealer. We want out under eye bags concealed and the under eye area all brightened up at the same time. How ever finding that perfect shade and finding a concealer that will do the job well can be quite a task. I know a lot of beauty bloggers and vloggers have reviewed this Collection Long Lasting Concealer so many times and that it has now becomes a cult beauty product but I could never get my hands on it, so I had to wait till I knew someone who was going to the UK to get it for me as you cant find Collection makeup here in Hong Kong. When I finally was able to get it I got the darkest shade which is No 4 and which is also called Dark. It costs around $4.19 and can be bought at Boots or Superdrug. If you live in Hong Kong after a lot of help from Google, I found out that UK2HK brings down Collection Makeup.

As you can see from the images the packaging is the usual tube type and the applicator has a doe foot applicator that makes applying the concealer that much easier. The texture is creamy and has a smooth feel to it. It does have a matte finish and the coverage I would say is very high,so a little goes a long way. From the swatch the shade looks a match for my skin tone but unfortunately it is a bit too light when I apply it on my skin.

I have used it as a concealer and my under eye area looks very light and much paler looking when I wear it alone. I realized that my under eye area looks very greyish and in the pictures it looked bad so I decided to use it as a under eye brightener instead of a concealer. I use a concealer that matches me and use the Collection concealer on top of it and man doesn't it look good. My under eye bags were completely gone and that area looked brighter. I also use it along the bridge of my nose, chin and any where that's looking a bit dull. In pictures my complexion looked flawless, dont believe me take a look

I was so sad that I couldn't use it as a concealer but I some how found away to make the best use out of it for my skin tone. Being a bit darker sucks sometime when you have to find makeup to suit you. So I finally found the perfect eye brightener for me and I never fail to use it when ever I have a function or an occasion to go.

When I used it as a concealer the coverage was amazing and my dark circles and blemishes were not visible at all it was just that the shade didn't match me. The finish was more of a matte finish and I like that because my skin tends to get oily throughout the day. Anything that can prolong that, I love. It didn't crease or get patchy or blotchy or even look cakey, however it didn't last me 16 hours like it claims to but that maybe because I have oily skin and it will be different for everyone. I got around 4-5 hours of wear time which is relatively good considering my skin gets very oily quite fast. 

Using it as a brightener on myself was quite amazing I must say, my skin looked glowing and kind of had a high-end picture quality when I took pictures. No editing has been done in the above picture and you can see that my skin is glowing, all thanks to the Collection Long Lasting Concealer. I am so glad I was able to use this concealer even if it was a bit light for my skin tone. If you haven't tried this out and your more on the fairer skin tone spectrum then I definitely suggest you give this a try as this will be perfect for you. It will conceal and brighten up your under eye area.
