I haven’t tried a lot from Collection, but when their Lasting Perfection foundation was mentioned a lot on Instagram, I realised it had been a while since I last tried a drugstore foundation.
For £6.49 it’s an affordable price and there are 20 shades to choose from, initially I chose 5 Fair but it was way to light for me so then chose 7 Biscuit and it’s a perfect match! The foundation is described as:
Lasting Perfection Foundation now available in new shades, offering up to 16 hours of wear and improved SPF30 protection. For early mornings or late nights, it will last with you. The 6-in-1 formula primes, conceals, covers, smooths, protects and mattifies.
The medium to full coverage foundation seamlessly blends for a flawless complexion and is now specially formulated to perfectly match all shades of Lasting Perfection Concealer, making it easier than ever before to shop your base.
The foundation packaging is a very standard glass bottle and pump dispenser. I love that it has SPF in it as I already use SPF moisturise and so an extra bit is always welcome! As for the formula I wouldn’t agree it’s medium coverage straight away, usually I apply two thin layers just to get medium coverage. But it is definitely buildable to a fuller coverage.
Whilst I haven’t tried it for 16 hours, when I do wear it all day it really lasts. I have combination skin and this foundation is not matte. It applies a more satin finish, but can be made more matte with powder. I do find it I don’t set with translucent powder on a powder puff it can make my skin really shiny. I don’t mind a little shine but too much and I feel I look almost sweaty.
Overall I really love this foundation, it has become one of my favourites. It’s so easy to build up, doesn’t separate after wearing all day and it gives a really natural finish. I have been using it non-stop and am obsessed with it. For the price it is an amazing foundation and so affordable! If you’re looking for a new foundation to try I highly recommend this one!
