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.
I purchased this after all the amazing reviews and have to say "WOW".
This is my first ever review (Im a MUA virgin) but this product has forced me into writing a review. Im 43 and have good skin but darkness under my eyes and the odd spots of redness that go with aging!
The concealer has taken years off me and puts my expensive ones to shame. It brightens, lightens and conceals with perfection!
I apply this all across my eye area as far as the top of the cheekbones and the tip of my nose (almost like an eye mask shape)...with age our skin gets 'darker' around these areas. Its a trick I learned from You Tube and it really does work, it lifts and focuses on these areas.
I then use a pretty sheer foundation like Garnier BB or Mac and the result is amazing!
Im totally blown over by this concealer and tend to buy one very time I see it as Im terrified of it being discontinued. At £4.19 its affordable and you can even buy several colours to colour match areas or mix
A huge thumbs up from me...a must have item
This is my absolute favourite concealer. It literally doesn't budge all day! I have it in Fair 1 and it's a great match for my NW15 skin. A little dab of product goes a long way, so I love that I don't have to cake it on - It covers my blemishes in one light layer. Fantastic quality for such an inexpensive product. A real bargain beauty find.
Wow, this stuff is SO good. I bought after the amazing reviews on MUA and all are justified. Is it as good as the best high-end stuff? Maybe not, but for £4 you will NOT find anything better. It's one of the few concealers I've used that can be used under eye and on blemishes as the formula is rich enough to blend but not so creamy that it slides everywhere. Colour-wise, there are only three so lots of people will be between shades. I'm an NC20 with dreadful dark circles and the Light shade is a great cover up. LOVE!!
This is a wonderful concealer!
It's very moisturizing, the coverage is medium but buildable. It doesn't crease and it's perfect for my under-eye circles. It has a decent lasting power, I wish it lasted a bit longer tho (it lasts for about 5+ hours). It's my favorite drugstore concealer, its better than my Dior skin perfecting hydrating concealer, Shiseido concealer stick, YSL Anti-Cernes multi action concealer... Better than any high-end concealer that I tried. And I tried many.
I'm using the shade deep and I'm MAC NC40 at the moment.
I've already bought a new one!
