Last week, I drove up to visit the ever so lovely Shen, and of course we only had one thing on our agenda. Shopping. Whilst out Shen mentioned she wanted to try the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection foundation, and I thought, hey I'll try it out too. (YOLO)
If you read my blog regularly, you may already know that I am after a long wearing foundation that stays in place all day, so I was interested to see if it lived up to the 16 hour wear claims.
I really like the packaging of this bottle. It feels like frosted glass and a pump is always good in my books. One thing I don't like is that there was no seal around it, and many of the bottles had already been used, so be careful with that.
Nothing // Just the foundation
The colour match is pretty accurate for a high street (drugstore) foundation (there are six shades to choose from), and the coverage is very much medium-high.
Now I wasn't a massive fan of the concealer, but this foundation impressed me. I wouldn't say its my favourite ever one, but it is pretty good. I didn't feel the need to powder up my skin, but after a few hours I noticed my skin got a bit greasy round my T-Zone.
I wouldn't recommend to for dry skin as it did cling to ceartain dry areas of my face, and started collecting ever so slightly.
It lasted pretty well, but not amazingly, considering I only had it on for around 7-8 hours.
Overall I'm impressed, but not blown away with this foundation. Maybe it will be a grower, but it won't be a negative item in my collection.
Have you tried this? What do you think?
