My Favourite Concealer

If I'm in a hurry and can only do the bare minimum make-up wise in the morning, my three must haves are concealer, cheek tint and mascara. I'm very lucky that I have pretty good skin, but as a Uni student I definitely don't always keep it in tip-top shape with late nights either working or partying! One absolute saviour for those dark circles and the odd blemish or two is Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer.



I had been using MAC Select Cover Up in NC30 for about a year and a half, but ran out of a tube and decided to try this as I had heard many good things about it. On a routine shop in Boots I picked one up in the shade 'medium' (after blending into my jawline to check it matched me, something many people don't do when they are shade-testing a foundation or concealer - your hands are not the same colour as your face!). It can be found here for a pretty scrumptious £4.19 (much cheaper than MAC Select Cover Up at £13.50!).

Don't get me wrong, Select Cover Up is a great concealer and lasts forever, but it just wasn't thick enough to really cover dark circles or blemishes. I was actually mesmerised by the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection's ability to literally cover up anything, flawlessly! In the picture above you can barely see my dark circles or any blemishes (there has been no photoshopping ;)!) and the shade is perfect for my skin. I float between a MAC NW25 and NC30, but this is smack bang in the middle.

If you're stuck and haven't a clue which concealer to go for, this all-round gem is worth picking up if it is available where you live - you wont be disappointed!
