Collection Cosmetics Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer (Review/Swatches)

 Ultimate wear concealer conceals flaws, imperfections and blemishes for up to 16 hours.Transfer proof and water resistant for full and long lasting coverage. Provides beautiful, shine-free, blemish-free skin for every waking hour.

I have been on the search for the most affordable concealer with  amazing coverage for my dark under eyes. I have seen Tati of GlamLifeGuru raved about this and Lisa Eldrige's tutorial. When I blogged about Collection Cosmetics, a few of my readers asked me about this but I did not see this concealer on my first trip to the Ramp, Trinoma. Since then, I was on the lookout for this concealer. Sadly, most of the stalls I have seen only carries the lightest shade.  I was on the verge of buying MAC Pro Longwear Concealer but chanced upon this concealer from Collection Cosmetics in the shade "medium" more than a week ago. I did not hesitate to buy it because it was really hard to find. 

I thought the shade medium that the SA were telling me was the 2nd to the lightest shade. Turned out be it was the third from the lightest.
The concealer is housed in a sturdy plastic packaging with a doe foot application. The packaging does not scream "speciam" or "rave" to me. 
Medium 3 is a light beige shade which look  a shade lighter than my NC35 skintone.

On my initial try of this concealer, I found it very dry and cakey. I was utterly disappointed with how it made my eyes look wrinkly and the concealer looked  patchy.  On the other hand,  its coverage and pigmentation amazed me. I have relatively dark under and I have been in search for the best and affordable concealer to cover up my bags.  With two layers of this concealer, it can cover up my dark circles like magic.   On my second try, I decided to apply it under my eyes a few seconds after my under eye cream settled. I applied it in a patting motion and it blended perfectly on my skin. The consistency is creamy and blendable but dries quickly compared to other liquid concealers I have tried. It has medium-heavy coverage.

The Good:
  1. EXCELLENT coverage! Two layers can completely cover my dark circles. It also works in brilliantly covering up red spots and acne marks. 
  2. Long lasting. True to its name, this concealer is long lasting and does not wear off easily. (You can refer to my photos below) I applied it in the morning and it stayed throughout the day (just make sure you top it off with powder to lock the concealer in place). I usually reapply concealer by mid day because my previous concealer, Artdeco Camouflage Cream has poor staying power. With this concealer, I do not reapply concealers anymore. It can stay on my under eyes for more than a whopping 8 hours. (Take note, I have dry skin).
  3. The texture is creamy and blendable. 
  4. Amazing quality at such an affordable price. This only cost me 299 pesos.
  5. It looks so natural on my skin despite its heavy coverage. Just make sure you moisturize your under eyes well to prevent caking and dryness.
  6. Does not settle on the fine lines.  Due to old age (Yes, being on my late twenties qualifies me as "old" in the beauty blogosphere), my fine lines have been really noticeable.
  7. It does not crease!!! 
  8. I got a good colour match in the shade "Medium".
  9. I did not experience any break out.
  10. Despite it being lighter than my skin tone, it blends perfectly well on my skin. It also looked seamless on photos and even those taken with flash. 
The Bad:
  1. The shade medium is always out of stock. I bought mine at the Ramp, Trinoma.
  2. This does not have a varied and extensive shade selection.  No. 3 Medium even looked a shade lighter for my NC35 skin.
  3. Tends to cake and dries quickly. 
For reference, here is my dark under eye. This photo does not clearly show how dark my under eyes are.
With two layers, with powder and after more than eight hours of wear without retouching
Had it not been for me getting teary when I watched a movie, then the inner and outer corners would still look well. Can you you see that it did not settle on my fine lines?  
Collection Cosmetics plus Iris Powder Foundation.

Over all, this concealer is my Holy Grail!!!! I absolutely love it to bits and I highly recommend this to all of my readers! Will I be buying again? Hell yeah!!!! I should be hoarding this concealer to secure back ups!!! hihihi

What is your favorite concealer?
Have a blessed day everyone!

  1. I've been wanting to buy this ever since I saw it in TriNoma but I bought Naturactor instead. So far I like Naturactor as well but damn it really does work wonders. I love the coverage. Thanks for the informative review, sis! :D

    1. Hi sis! Where dis you buy your Naturactor? Is it in Trinoma as well?

    2. Nope, I bought mine at Digital Traincase :)

  2. Amazing coverage! It's also very affordable for 299php. Great review! Might give this a try as I am having problems concealing my acne marks. I hope the Medium shade is available when I visit Trinoma. :)


  3. I love this review! The concealer's coverage is awesome! :D But I've just bought a new concealer, darn. Ang haba ng name nung product na to noh? I will definitely add this up on my wish list. :)

  4. I've been snobbing the Collection Cosmetics stall in The Ramp, Glorietta because I was trying to stop myself from buying their make up. But after this post, I'd probably try and get my own shade of this concealer!

  5. bb cream lang nilalagay ko for my under eye, instead of concealer :( ..wala pa kasi ako nahahanap ng matino at hindi heavy na concealer pag nilagay.

  6. I've always wanted to try the different Collection products. I'm not a fan of concealers kasi yung mga nabibili ko ang bilis mawala (or baka di ko lang naiayos yung lagay) and it's too heavy on my face. Lagi ko lang nilalagyan ng BB cream or ng foundation. But will try this. Maybe this is the one. Thanks for sharing to us your views about this! <3
