You're No Good For Me: Collection (2000) Lasting Perfection Concealer.


Todays product is one that I just dont get on with. Its a popular one amongst bloggers and thats the main reason I purchased it. I'm always looking out for good concealers and this one sounded promising as well as being affordable.

I find Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer to be one of the most cakey concealers I've ever tried. I can always tell when one of my friends are wearing it just by the look it leaves on the skin. On me it looks obvious, gathers in any place it can, the shade range is terrible so trying to find a suitable shade is a nightmare and putting it under my eyes is just a disaster. Even just looking at it on the end of the applicator makes me feel a bit ill and cringe at the thought of putting it near my face. Its safe to say I'm not a fan.

What products are often raved about but just dont work for you? Let me know if you're a Lasting Perfection Concealer lover or hater.

See what other product I'm not a lover of here

  1. I used to love this but have really gone off it since my under eye area has turned dry, but I feel the same about estee lauder double wear concealer. Also agree about the shade range- a 3 is too light and 4 too dark for me no matter how pale or tanned I am! X

    1. I got the Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer as a gift with purchase and liked it at first but then went off it. They both seem quite similar.

  2. I'm most definitely a lover! It works really well with my skin and I haven't experienced any cakeyness or dryness. I'm actually on my seventh tube!
    I definitely believe that makeup should be looked at from a personal angle though, even if something is raved about that doesn't mean it will work for you too :D

    1. 7 tubes? You're definitely a lover! haha My skin has a fit when I apply it but theres plenty of products I love that other people hate and vice versa.

  3. I have seen so many love/hate reviews of this, it's like marmite! I love it, but have gone off using it under my eyes like I used to x

    1. I wish I loved it, the price is brilliant! The first time I used it under my eyes I almost died. Within 2 minutes I looked like I had so many wrinkles.

  5. Oh thank God someone else hates this! I thought I was the only one! I HATE this concealer, it just slides off my face like melted butter. Eugh. I actually find the Collection 2000 cover-up stick FAR better than this. I've just recently started using Rimmel Match Perfection and it's pretty good, if you're looking for a new concealer? x

    1. Yay, my first hater! ;)

      Melted butter is exactly how I would describe it. I'm going between a few different concealers at the minute but dont 100% love any of them. I'll have to remember to try Rimmel Match Perfection next time I'm in town. Thanks.

  6. I just got this recently after reading great reviews - the same as you by the sound of it. Very thick, and therefore noticeable, but covers blemishes really well. Think I've got a love/hate relationship with it!

    1. On me it seems to stain the skin but doesnt cover blemishes. It hates me.

  8. I actually really like this concealer. I'll admit the colour range is a bit naff however it's works well for blemishes but applied underneath foundation. Under the eyes it creases like a b***h! xx

    1. Looks like not many people like it for the under eye area.

  9. I like the fact that it covers dark circles well and is matte! However, it does seem to create lines that you never realised were there before! And on blemishes... it's a def no no for me. It seems to highlight them and say 'hey look at me!' x
