Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Foundation

Hello Everyone. Thank you for stopping for stopping by, today I'm going to talk about Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Foundation.

If anyone vaguely familiar with the blogging community was asked to name a cult beauty product Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer would undoubtedly  be mentioned.

When browsing though Boots last week I came across the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Foundation. I was immediately interested. I have tried countless foundations over the years in the never ending search for perfection (<-- Terribly Pun). I have tried everything from Estee Lauders Double Wear to Revlon Colourstay, but none of them were quiet right.

I have oily/combination skin that is very prone to spots and blemishes. I like a medium to full coverage foundation with a matte but natural looking finish. Not asking for much now am I?!

When I picked up Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Foundation it was on special offer for €6.39 instead of its usually €9.39 price tag. So it’s is incredibly good value if its compared to Estee Lauder Double Wear which costs €35 or Revlon Colourstay at €17.89. 

As far as looks  go its scores high. It has a heavy glass bottle but more importantly it has a pump. Something its more expensive counterparts do not have.

I was excited to try this foundation considering the reputation of the concealer. I wore it to my cousins 21st that night so it was put under a lot of pressure. But I have to say it coped amazingly. I have seen worn it every day for the past week and a half in a variety of situations and it still doesn’t disappoint.

The only small problem I have with it is that it does settle into some of the pores around my nose after about 6 hours. But I find adding a little extra powder with a good brush solves this problem quickly.  

Amazing Coverage
Natural Looking
Very good colour match
The bottle has a pump
Stays Matte

Does settle into my pores a little

Overall I love this foundation had would highly recommend trying it, especially if your a fan of the Collection 200 Lasting Perfection Foundation.

Thank you some much for reading this post. Have you ever tried this foundation? What is your Holy Grail foundation?

  1. rimmel wake me up all the way! this sounds good might try it xxxxx

    1. Thanks you! Everyone keeps telling me to try that foundation but I heard it isn't great for oily skin. And I have very oily skin! :)

  2. I use this foundation too! I have combination skin and I sometimes find that it makes my t-zone super shiney as the day goes on. I love this foundation though and it lasts a good while so i'm not constantly having to repurchase x

    1. Thank you for the comment! I find it to be really long lasting as well, better than most other foundation I've tried! :) x
