Collection Lasting Perfection Colour Correcting Concealers Review



So I know these have been out for a few months now but I did say I would do a review of the new(ish) colour correcting concealers from Collection. We all know and love the Lasting Perfection Concealer and I was really excited to see that they were bringing out some colour correcting products (as well as some new products to their Primed and Ready range!).



So there are three colours to choose from - 
Lemon - to conceal dark under eye circles
Green - to conceal and correct redness
Lilac - Brighten dull skin

I decided to pick up the Lemon and Green, just because I honestly don't know where I would put the Lilac shade. So here's what I thought about the two I picked up.



Lemon -
I always apply colour correctors after I've primed and before my foundation. Obviously, this is to conceal dark circles under your eyes so that's where I use it. I've found it dries quite quickly like the original Lasting Perfection Concealer but I do really like it. I always kind of tap in my under eye concealer rather than using a beauty blender or brush just because I find it kind of meshes into the skin more that way and it lasts a lot longer too. I do tend to have quite bad under eye circles and this helps a lot. I'll admit I do sometimes forget about using the colour correctors, especially if I'm in a rush applying my makeup but when I do remember to use this, I can definitely see a difference and my eyes look less like a zombie and more like a human. I will definitely be continuing to use this and will be buying a new one as soon as this one starts running out.

Green -
I do have kind of spot prone skin so I picked up the green concealer to pop on to reduce redness when I have angry spots and to give my foundation a better base too. I have used green colour correctors before but I always find the green ones tend to be quite chalky when applied to the skin and unfortunately, this one is the same. I do use it, but not always, it just depends on the type of coverage I want or need, it does work well to cover redness though but I do find it quite hard to blend in without having a kind of green cast over my face. I suppose the plus side to the green colour corrector being chalky is that it dries up any spots quicker but I don't love it and I definitely prefer the Lemon shade. Would I buy the green one again? I don't really know.


So there's my mini kind of reviews of the Collection Lasting Perfection Colour Correctors. 
Have you tried them out yet? What did you think?
