Today I am going to be reviewing the Collection Illuminating Touch Concealer. We all know that Collection is famous for the Lasting Perfection Concealer which I do use quite a lot. I’ve tried a couple of these pen type concealers, you’ll have read about my disaster with the W7 one, but I can safely say that this has been a much better experience.
This concealer is slightly more expensive than the Lasting Perfection one, this one costs £4.99. The packaging is very simple and is like pretty much any other pen concealer. You twist up the base and the product comes out through the brush. This concealer claims to help conceal dark circles and blemishes and it also has light diffusing particles to help illuminate the eye area.
I personally would not use this type of concealer on my blemishes as I prefer something with a higher coverage and I don’t really want to illuminate my blemishes. Therefore, I use this just to cover my dark circles. I find that this concealer is very light in consistency especially when compared to the W7 one. This doesn’t offer the highest coverage so if you have particularly bad dark circles then this will not work for you. I really like this though as it is light under my eyes and doesn’t look cakey and it really helps to brighten my eyes. I have been using this pretty much every time I’ve worn makeup for the past couple of months, I mentioned it in my March Favourites. This concealer blends really well into the skin and I don’t need to worry about it setting into any of my fine lines. I always set it with powder, but I find that it lasts really well throughout the day. I do sometimes touch it up if I am looking tired during the day. The only downside to this concealer is the same downside with all of these pen type concealers is that after a few uses it does get a little messy but I can live with that as I really like this concealer.
Overall I am really pleased with this concealer and I think it is a really good affordable option. Collection seem to do concealers really well. I haven’t used my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer for ages as I have been using this which shows you how much I enjoy it as I used to use the Maybelline one religiously.
