I have seen so many people raving about the new Lasting Perfection Dewy foundation from Collection so I had to give it a go especially as I am a huge fan of the concealer. I am currently using the No.7 Lasting Perfection foundation and have been for years and I absolutely love it but I wanted to see how this one compared. I found the foundation in Superdrug and it was only £6; which for a foundation which claims to be full coverage, I thought was a steal.
When I pumped the foundation onto my sponge, it did feel quite thick and gloopy and as someone who suffers with dry skin I was quite worried but I had no reason too as it blended so well. I did struggle with finding a shade as you can’t swatch in store and we all know how appalling the lighting in drugstores are; so I played it safe and went for shade 5 which actually matched me pretty well but the fact it was so blendable reassured me that if I went a shade too dark it wouldn’t be the end of the world. Now, the true question I hear you ask; is it full coverage? I’d say no, it was more medium but it was definitely buildable and even with a few layers it didn’t feel or look cakey on my skin. It actually felt so natural and lightweight which I was really impressed by.
I did my makeup at about 10am and went on quite a long walk as I really wanted to put it to the test. As soon as I put it on, I was in love; it looked so flawless and radiant on my skin and the rest of my makeup sat on top of it really well. I wondered if it would look as good outside in natural daylight and it definitely did; so lightweight and dewy. I kept the makeup on until the evening at around 8pm and I was so pleased with how it looked. I do tend to get quite an oily T zone and I found that this was still the case but the make up didn’t really move around and with a bit of powder I think it would have looked as good as it did when I first put it on.
Taking the makeup off was also super easy, I just used some micellar water and cleanser and it came right off and didn’t leave my skin feeling irritated or like I still had product on which is something I find thicker foundations can do. I mean for £6 I am so impressed with this foundation and already can’t wait to wear it again. If you have oily skin, they do also do a matte version of the Lasting Perfection foundation which I believe is the same price so there is definitely something for everyone.
Have you ever tried it and if not what is your favourite foundation currently?
