Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer VS. Collection Illuminating Touch Concealer

Who doesn't love the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, lets be honest? However, the other day I was in Superdrug and all the Collection products were under £4 - so I thought I would pick up the Illuminating Touch Concealer and see if it was any match to the Lasting Perfection.



I wasn't sure whether you guys would want a written review or a comparison so I thought I would do a little bit of both.



Lasting Perfection
This concealer has a very thick consistency and has medium to full coverage. It is not the easiest of concealers to blend as it is so thick, but with a brush it is much easier to blend. I tend to use it on red spots and under my eyes to cover my dark circles however it can sometimes be a bit too cakey and heavy for under the eyes. There isn't an amazing colour selection, only 4 colours, so most of you will probably have to mix a couple of shades together which is what I have to do. The doe foot applicator isn't the most hygienic of all applicators but it does mean you can get the concealer precisely where you want it. I would say this concealer is perfect for those of you wanting to cover red areas and spots. 



Illuminating Touch 
If you thought Lasting Perfection had a bad colour selection, this bad boy only has 3 shades in its collection (pardon the pun). It has a pen style applicator which I just love because I enjoy winding it up to get the product out - which means I normally get carried away and end up with far too much! It has a medium texture but still a medium coverage, which makes it even better for under eye darkness and other dark areas! I love using it to highlight the centre of my nose too. When applied under the eyes it does not crease or seep into your pores and fine lines which is always handy. I also use this on my eye lid before applying my Maybelline 24 Hr Colour Tattoo because it neutralises the eyelids. 


All in all both concealers are amazing for drugstore products, but Lasting Perfection is better for redness and Illuminating Touch is better for darkness. Both the concealers are £4.99 normally, and are available from Boots and Superdrug.

Which one do you guys prefer?
