How is your week going? Just the usual for me so far 🙂 Today I bring to you Collection Cosmetics’Concealer.
Collection Cosmetics recently made their way to New Zealand and surprised us all with its range of cosmetics and reasonably low prices. I had heard a lot about their concealer and was also in the market for a cheaper replacement. If I remember correctly I paid $14 for it from Countdown. At that price and location you can sneak it into the groceries without anyone noticing.
I’ve used it for two months now and I have to say its not bad for a $14 concealer. I have had a strict budget the last wee while so it has been nice to still have products that does a good job
This concealer is better for red patches and pimples. For dark spots it takes the edge of your under eye circles, but not enough for me. I suffer from real bad dark circles and need a bit more coverage. Other than that the coverage was fine.
I was surprised by how well it lasts. As long as I didn’t touch my face too often it stayed where it was meant to till the end of the day.
Application is easy, it comes in a tube with a wand to swipe it on with. I found this quite good because I could get it on the areas I needed then blend it in with my own brush, all without getting any on my hands. It also blends very well too, no streaking.
There were only two shades that I could see and I got the darkest. Now I am fairly pale so a wider range of shades would be good. This shade did suit me fine, but if I was any more tanned I would be stuck for choice.
I wouldn’t repurchase again, just because it doesn’t help with dark circles, if I didn’t have such a problem with them I would forgo other more expensive concealers for it.
I’m going to have a look at some of the other Collection products since the concealer has been so good. Have you have any Collection products to recommend?
Thanks for stopping by!
