I had thought this was too good to be true... after hearing raving reviews about this concealer i was a bit unsure whether to give it a try or not, but since its only £4.19 (when on offer you can purchase it for less, something round £3.50?) I decided to give it a go!
Its not ridiculously cheap, but its very affordable. I got this in medium and it suits me perfect!
I LOVEEE this product, and will be going back to repurchase more back ups. this concealer works so well!! It tops bobbi brown's creamy concealer i think. Maybe i prefer the more liquid texture rather than creamy.
This covers my blemishes and under eyes perfectly. and for this price you cannot go wrong! This is probably my all time favourite make up product, thats how good it is.
it comes in a lipgloss like packaging, a tube with a wand for application. Packaging is nothing special, price is affordable. Id recommend everyone to give this a try.
Im glad I did!
I can't believe how good this concealer is. I use LM Secret Concealer under the eyes just to disguise dark circles but like to use another light reflecting concealer on top. Up til now drugstore concealers were generally disappointing. Not this. It is insanely pigmented and long-lasting. It doesn't crease, not a bit. Only a tiny touch with the wand is necessary. It does need a fair bit of blending, either with a finger or small buffing brush but doesn't look cakey at all.
The colour selection is good, but the ones I swatched on my hand all turned very pink on my cool-toned skin, so I went with the lightest shade, Fair, which is a good match. It works well at disguising the redness around my nose also.
Retails at £4.19 but I got it 50p off so it was a bargainous £3.69. Think I've found my new HG drugstore concealer :)
Great concealer. Great coverage. I didn't find it drying but it can be if you put too much of it under the eye.
Good concealer to buy a shade down in if planning to use under the eye as it provides a nice highlighted effect (though no shimmer or anything)
This is medium to full coverage concealer. Thick consistency, can be cakey. It is long lasting compared to other concealers, does crease if you have alot of fine lines like me. Set with fine powder to prevent creasing.
Amazing! Good coverage, blends like a dream, nice matte finish, no nasty smells. I use 1 fair and it doubles up really well as a cheek highlighter and covers up dark circles so well! This is 10x better than anything expensive I've tried. I'm sure it will last a while. I don't mind repurchasing at this price! I also tested 2 light in the shop and it had more pinkish tones. Fair was basically YSLs' Touche Eclat (2) without the high price tag! So if you like that get this next time and save your dollar.
WOW... just wow... I can't believe my HG concealer turned out to be a £4 find from Collection 2000!!!!
I am a makeup junkie and have tried and bought so many concealers over the year, including Estee Lauder double wear, MAC pro longwear (I have 2 shades), Shu Uemura, Bobbi Brown... My favourite is probably EL DW in medium. It covers my undereye circles really well but is just a tad too dark for my skintone (NC 30 ish). Now, Collection 2000 concealer in no.3 medium is REALLY similar to the EL in terms of wear, texture and colour. Except that it works EVEN better on my skin colour!!! It totally brightens my undereye area and provides full coverage that does not budge all day!!! I'm sooo impressed and hate myself for not discovering this little gem sooner!! (recently bought MAC pro longwear in 2 different shades, turned out that neither is a perfect match... Such a waste of money)
It's the holy grail concealer I was looking for!! I'm nc 42 (which is a little dark for me) and I'm using the deep concealer.
It was £4.19 and Its well worth it!! I've spent more on mac which wasnt as good as this.
I like the fact it's quite small, easy to slip in a handbag or small makeup bag.
I put it on once this morning and it's lasted hours without the colour changing or creasing under my eyes.
It's smooth and easy to blend and sets fairly quickly to a matt finish.i could wear this alone for a minimum makeup look.
This concealer has really good coverage. It can cover my dark circles almost perfectly, and believe me: my dark circles are REALLY dark. Does it last sixteen hours? No. However, it will last until the end of my school day, which I really like.I also have oily skin which makes products melt off of my face in the space of a few hours. However, the main letdown with this concealer is that to get the coverage that is mentioned above, I need to pile on TONS of product. I spend way too much time putting on concealer in the morning to erase my dark circles! However, this is the most full coverage concealer I've tried, so I'd repurchase again. For the price, you can't get better. I got the color Fair 01, which is a *very* light shade. I can make it work for my NC20ish skin tone by putting my tinted moisturizer over it to even it out a little. Next time, I'm buying Light 02. I'd recommend this, but only if you're willing to work with the fact that if you have a major issue with dark circles like I do, you need to use quite a lot of product in the mornings.
After years of searching, I finally found my perfect concealer.
Fair (1) is a perfect match for my skin tone. I use the concealer almost everyday, whether it's on dark circles, scarring or spots, I can always count on it to do what it says without me having to worry about it coming off half way through the day.
It's packaging is a discrete plastic bottle/tube which can fit into any bag/purse you may have! This concealer is probably the only item in my make up bag that I take absolutely everywhere with me!
I definitely recommend this product!
I feel bad for writing this review because I really wanted to like this concealer. But it just doesn't work for my needs. I use concealer to cover up any current acne spots and a little bit of light acne scarring. While the shade "Fair 1" is a decent match, the actual coverage it provides for me is minimal. For a better drugstore option, I highly recommend Physicians Formula Conceal Rx Physicians Strength Concealer. The coverage is far superior compared to that of Collection 2000's, in my opinion.
