Hey guys! While I was browsing in Wilko minding my business I stumbled upon the makeup aisle which intrigued so much that I decided to pick out somethings. The one thing I wanted to try out was some new concealer and I decided on these two brands.
In this blog post, we will review the Collection ‘Lasting Perfection’ concealer in Fair and the Essence ‘Camouflage High Coverage’ concealer in the shades 05 Fair and 10 Nude.
Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer:
I bought this concealer for £4.18 in Wilko which is really not a bad price for a ‘full coverage’ concealer, the tube holds 6.5ml which is a decent amount of concealer for everyday use. Some of the things that I enjoy about this concealer is the buttery spreadability the formula has and the long-lasting effect it gives to the skin. The colour ‘Ivory’ is great to highlight with but I have found it to almost adjust to my skin colour or the colour of the foundation I am wearing at the time. It doesn’t go orange or anything like that but it nicely darkens by half a shade the most. You really do not need a lot of this and the tube lasts for ages. This is the concealer I reach for when I need to have a full face for a whole day and make my skin look flawless for a number of hours without any moving or patchiness.
Essence Camouflage Concealer:
This concealer cost me £2.50 in Wilko which is absolutely a bargain for a product of this type. The tube holds 5ml of the product but the bottle looks significantly bigger than the Collection one even though it has less product. I picked out two colours due to their closeness of actual pigment and undertone. 05 Ivory and 10 Nude are basically the shade but I have to say that 10 Nude is a tiny bit yellower in the undertone whereas 05 Ivory has a smidge of pinky-ness in it when you put both colours side by side. Great for highlighting under the eyes and covers spots very good. Does not enhance dryness or stick to dry patches, stays for a long time and overall really great money for £2.50!!! I could not believe the price for this product since it is so true to its description, medium to full coverage with the option of building it up if you need more coverage in specific areas.
Overall I love both concealers and use them on an everyday basis which means they cannot be bad or fake in their claims. The value of money for these products is amazing since you are getting such a bargain for a product that the everyday woman uses every morning to finish off her look.
I highly recommend any of the readers to try the concealers out for themselves as different skin types react differently to formulas so it’s the case of trialing it out for a week to see how much you like. In the end, you are only spending pennies on a concealer that could be your favourite of all time. Hope you enjoyed reading this review of two new concealers (to me) and check out my other beauty related blog posts here. Have a nice rest of the day!!
