if you have read my March Favourites post then you will know that I have been really loving the Collection Lasting Perfection foundation. I decided I wanted to do a full review on this foundation because, unlike Collections Lasting Perfection concealer, the foundation isn’t widely spoken of (as far as I know). But I really think it is one of the absolute best foundations from the drug store. And at £5.99 you really cannot go wrong. (At the time of writing, this foundation is on offer at Boots for £3.99 here)
Claims on the bottle:
16 hour wear
Although I haven’t attempted to wear this foundation for 16 hours, I do think it lasts really well throughout the day. I will insert a picture at the end of the post which shows how it looks on my face after 5 hours wear. The coverage is definitely high which is perfect for me and it does look as flawless as foundation can, without being cakey or sinking into fine lines/pores. It is quite comparable to Estee Lauder Double Wear as it is a thick consistency and applies in a similar way. However, the finish is slightly more dewy than Double Wear. In my opinion, you do need to set this with a powder and I have been doing so with my Rimmel Stay Matte. If you have super oily skin this may not be the best for you but if you have normal or dry skin I think you’re going to love it. I have been using a foundation brush to apply this as it is my preferred way in general. SPF 20 is always a bonus too.
Below is a photo of me wearing this foundation. It had been on for 5 hours. As you can see the coverage is still really great. There is very slight redness around my nose which is normal for me and is easily touched up with a bit of concealer.
Have you tried this foundation? What do you think?
I hope you found this review helpful – I am seriously impressed with this foundation!
