About this deal

Collection have recently revamped this concealer, so I thought there was no better time to write a review. Does it still top my list of drugstore concealers? Let’s take a little look at my honest review of the Lasting Perfection Concealer… I bought Shade 5 Fair, Shade 10 Buttermilk and Shade 8 Beige. Before the new release, I had a routine of mixing Shade 5 (previously shade Fair) and Shade 10 (previously Warm Medium) together. It seemed to create the perfect yellowy-pale tone for my skin! But, even better, the new shade Beige (a light shade with a yellow undertone) seems to do the job in one step now. So, instead, I’ll probably use Fair to highlight and Buttermilk when I’ve got a tan.

And the new version? In all honesty, the formula doesn’t seem to have changed (and I’m damn well pleased about it). It still covers redness instantly, neutralises my under eye circles and works its magic on even the angriest of spots! This long-lasting miracle working concealer helps cover and conceal whilst fighting those nasty blemishes and visible pores. It soothes and softens the appearance of visible pores, uneven skin tones and fine lines.

With up to 16 hours of waterproof coverage, Lasting Perfection Blemish Concealer keeps your complexion perfectly put and flawless all day long. As we add more shades to our Lasting Perfection range, a few shade codes/names will change. During these changes, no change was made to the shade colouring of our original shades, the only change is the shade name/code and introduction of new shades.

I used to use this to spot conceal my angry spots and cysts. I’d apply a small dab straight onto the centre of the spot and blend it out with a clean finger or sponge. If a spot was particularly prominent, I would sometimes have to go in with a second layer — but after doubling up, the redness would always be gone.Shade 6 Cashew– For light skin tones with a golden neutral undertone. [Previously named 1A Cool Fair] To sculpt and contour, use a concealer 1-4 shades lighter than your skin tone to highlight, & another 1-4 shades darker to contour. Apply lighter shade down the nose, under the eye and centre of the forehead to illuminate. Use the darker shade to add dimension to your face, contouring your cheekbones, jawline and hairline

Previously named 1B, Warm Fair There’s now a fair shade range catering to numerous skin tones and undertones, which I’m sure will grow even more with time. Here’s what’s available:Shade 4 Extra Fair - For fair skin tones with a warm neutral undertone. Previously named, 0, Extra Fair Okay, so I know the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer is a tried-and-tested classic — but have I ever told you that, in my opinion, it’s the best concealer for acne of all-time?

If you’re looking for something affordable but with amazing coverage, this is your jam. I’ve seriously struggled with my skin but hid it from practically everyone I knew for years — which, if you’ve read my blog, was totally not the right decision. But regardless of that story, it did an amazing job at covering up my red, swollen, cystic acne. One tiny, teeny downside, though — when I was taking Accutane for my acne, this wasn’t such a good match for my skin. My skin was very dry and flaky and I found that this product clung to any dry patches — but in all fairness, I found that to happen with most products I tried at that stage. Anyway, I’d say this is worth using with caution for those with very dry skin. My normal skin type is normal-oily and slightly acne-prone (yep, even now) and it works perfectly again now. Okay, I’ve rambled for long enough now — if you’ve got this far (props to you), you probably wanna see this thing in action.

Moral of the story? Even though this concealer boasts incredible coverage, it’s not cakey or obvious like you might expect. Okay, I’m not saying it’ll look like you have no makeup on whatsoever, but it is incredibly blendable and creamy. A high coverage stretchable concealer, comfortable on skin and doubles as an eyeshadow base. The creamy texture blends smoothly with a natural finish, covering any unwanted blemishes. Shade 4 Extra Fair – For fair skin tones with a warm neutral undertone. [Previously named, 0, Extra Fair] But this used to do the job perfectly. Once blended out (gently) with a small sponge, you couldn’t see any transition between the concealer and my bare skin. I’d then just set over where I’d applied concealer very lightly with a translucent powder. It was such a relief to find something that meant I could hide my spots, but keep my real skin shining through.
